Re: 2018 K3 League

Goyang won the clash of the giants 3-1, to move all the way up to 3rd bottom. After watching Goyang and Uijeongbu in recent weeks, I completed the trinity of hopelessness by braving the relentless rain on Saturday to see Seoul United. They went 1-0 up away at Yeoju, only to lose 3-1. They were well ...

Re: Favourite World Cup moments of all time

I'm genetically obliged to pick the Archie Gemmill goal, although I think you are getting a bit confused, Scotland actually won the World Cup eleven years earlier at Wembley. The World Cup has had some of the best goals of all time scored at it and three that stand out for me are - 1978 - Archie Gem...

Re: World Cup 2018

"A good world cup for Germany is winning it, a bad world cup is only making the final", "Never write off the Germans". Plenty of cliches about the German national team. It's a pretty amazing record that they have. They are definitely a bigger threat than Italy this time. :0) Grou...

Re: World Cup 2018

Wow, that's the kind of comprehensive post that you normally only see on here about buses or K3 goalkeepers' weight problems. I thought I knew everything about the World Cup, but had no idea Brazil used to play in white and wouldn't have been able to name the East German goalscorer in the 1974 World...

Re: 2018 K3 League

Another week, another horsing for Uijeongbu who managed to lose 11-0 to Paju today. That currently makes them the worst team in Korea. However I was watching the 2nd worst this week. I caught the train up to Chungju today to see Chungju FC v Goyang. The drum bashing Magpie Ultra was there (of course...

Re: 2018 K3 League

Can't really fault either of the keepers for the eight goals. There isn't a lot you can do when the opposition thread or dribble the ball through the defence line almost at will. One thing that the big lad has that the first keeper didn't is a voice like a foghorn, maybe that's why they brought him ...

Re: 2018 K3 League

I’m deep in Cabbage Country just now. Just finished watched Buyeo beat Uijeonbu 8-2. The big lad pictured above came on after 35 minutes when Euijeonbu had just lost their fifth goal.

That’s three wins out of three for Buyeo, and they do look a bit advanced for the Basic League.

Pathos FC would be a more worthy winner of the N-league.

Re: 2018 N-league season

That's all very well for construction companies, but what about the garden furniture industry? I have enough trouble getting people to understand where Scotland is, I'm not going to try and explain that I'm from a country that Google translates as "arrogant." Been back for a month and afte...

2018 N-league season

Four weeks in, and no thread for the N-league this season? As the cherry blossoms battle it out with the snow, Gimhae and Gyeongju lead the way with four wins out of four. Daejeon Korail six points behind them in third and Gangneung yet to pick up a point this season. I've no idea if this will be th...

75 in Korean age, but 73 in Western age. The Guardian is never wrong.

Re: Where them teams be on this here map?

I like Daejeon Citizen in the K1, but I think you need more than two question marks for that! Now that all that Olympic nonsense is over, Gangwon FC are going to be at Chuncheon all this season. Both Daejeon teams are at the World Cup stadium at the moment, although Korail will move back to Hanbat l...

Thank you, I'm looking forward to seeing what the Guardian has in store for us next year. Hopefully some tales from Cabbage Country. :0)

Rooney’s perfect striking partner?

Interesting article in the Sunday Guardian newspaper today. Nice to see Korean football getting some more international exposure. http://www.theguardian.com/uk/sport/ If you’re old enough, You’re good enough It’s one of the oldest cliches in modern football, the goal scoring grandmother.

Re: 2018 Korean FA Cup Rounds 1 & 2

Ahhh, it's Yeoju Sejong, not Yeosu Sejong. I've been on a few false trails before to lower league grounds, but that would have been the granddaddy of them all!
