Re: 2017 AFC Champions League

It's an impressive achievement. I looked up what Al-Ahli meant in Arabic and apparently it translates as a red coloured cow*



* I'm lying, obviously, it is the Arabic word for national or public.

Re: 2017 AFC Champions League

For the first time, I've seen a lot more of the western side of the AFC Champions league than the East. Seems the usual fairly even mix of teams from Iran (3), Saudi (2), UAE (2) and Qatar (1) in the knock out stage. The only two entertaining things for me in the draw is that firstly as Iran and Sau...

Re: 2017 WK-League

I'm a bit out of the loop, but it's the U20 World Cup coming up? Suwon was one of the venues for the U17 World Cup last time so maybe same again?

Re: Scottish football 2016/17

Too tight at the bottom at the moment. Still a good chance Saints will go down to the depths that only pish like Rangers and Morton have sank to (although they both sank even lower than that all the way to tier 4). Have a much clearer idea by next weekend, fingers crossed that they'll be crying in t...

Re: 2017 National League season

Thrills and spills today in the National League. Busan are still the big draw that everyone wants to see despite being shit this year and rooted to the bottom of the league: Changwon 2-2 Gangneung (153) Mokpo 0-0 Gyeongju KHNP (103) Cheonan 0-0 Korail (763) Gimhae 0-0 Busan TC (975) Real Madrid v B...

Re: Flying Korean Football Managers?

Yeah, it was a bit easier poking fun at the Martyrs.

Flying Korean Football Managers?

I wouldn't normally share an article in the Sun, but this one is too strange not to. Haven't seen it reported in Korea so far, maybe there'd be more interest in it if his K-pop singing son said he was going to join him. Naked Ambition Gangwon boss Choi Yun-kyeom has shocked the traditionally conserv...

Re: Korean Football on Wikipedia

Hmm, all good questions. Foreign stars are a bit thin on the ground as the average salary in the league works out at about a couple of hundred (US) dollars a week, but the current manager of the free scoring national team is Pim Verbeek and a past manager was Ian Porterfield, years before he turned ...

Re: Korean Football on Wikipedia

This place is going to die if we don't have at least some controversy. I make it only four topics updated in the last week. With the Seoul vs Anyang match coming up in the FA Cup I think we should all make some sort of effort. With that in mind, let me ask this: Is Korean football really all that d...

Re: Korean Football on Wikipedia

I'd love to see Rangers move to Coatbridge, but I think Lanark is a bit more likely. (Coatbridge is predominantly catholic, Lanark was famously the town that tried to get Subway to change the colour of their store from green to blue). Not sure about Steve's example about when FC Seoul would stop bei...

Re: Prediction league 2017

The Prediction Superleague did have a rather quick demise last year, but I'd be willing to merge it with an inferior regular league this year if anyone wants to get one going.

Re: Scottish football 2016/17

I reckon Dembele probably still had his mind on her penalty kickers when he sliced that shot off the crossbar.
