Re: Citizen clubs making profits

Seongnam are weird. All the IT companies in Pangyo, literally across the road from the stadium, and they can't find someone with a bit of cash to throw at the team? I'm surprised Naver or Kakao hasn't sponsored them already to be honest.

Re: 2017 Korean FA Cup Rounds 3 & 4

Has any city besides Seoul ever had more teams than that playing in the competition in the same season? Nexen Tire have their HQ in Yangsan which is on the Busan subway, so in the 2017 competition we have: Nexen Tire, Bugyeong University, Busan FC, Busan Transport and Busan I'Park. Busan is a footb...

Re: 2017 Korean FA Cup Rounds 3 & 4

Random questions/possible future trivia night answers - I noticed looking through Soccerway that 'Presbyterian Medical Center' who were obliterated 8-0 by Cheongju FC in the second round are apparently the football team of Jeonju's Jesus Hospital. This raises two questions : One, what is it with rel...

Re: 2017 K-League Classic

What's everyone's predictions for how the final table will look then? My guess (Pre round 1) 1. Jeju 2. Ulsan 3. Seoul 4. Gangwon 5. Pohang 6. Jeonbuk 7. Jeonnam 8. Sangju 9. Incheon 10. Suwon 11. Gwangju 12. Daegu Jeju have been steadily improving for a couple of seasons now and this is probably th...

Re: 2017 K3 League Advanced (D4) season

So is K3 officially better than the CSL now then? Transfer window's still open, don't give up on Yangju to sign Messi just yet...

Re: 2017 K3 League Basic (D5) season

plenty of people up that way and there's no other clubs currently catering to fans in northeast Seoul Just in Seoul there's Jungnang Chorus Mustang in Jungnang-gu and Seoul United in Nowon-gu (unless they've permanently moved). Then in north/northeastern Gyeonggi you've got Uijeongbu, Yangju, and P...

Re: 2017 K3 League Basic (D5) season

I'm guessing now there's a proper pyramid system at least sort-of being put in place and getting a club promoted from level 4 or 5 up to the top couple of divisions without having to bribe your way in is now a vaguely realistic prospect (assuming the KFA don't change everything again), clubs down th...

Re: 2016-17 Winter Transfer Window

They'll be working in their local Gu or Dong office during the day but free to play amateur football at the weekends. OK, that's surely got to be a new challenge for this season then - Who can get some kind of official document signed and stamped by a bona fide K-league star? First person to post e...

Re: 2017 K3 League Advanced (D4) season

Those pictures are quite impressive for K3 - they appear to be taken on an official stage of some sort instead of in front of somebody's uncle's Samgyeopsal restaurant; and in the second one we have one guy about to break into the Gangnam Style dance while the other appears to be measuring the air i...

Re: 2016-17 Winter Transfer Window

Jeonbuk Hyundai winger Han Kyo-won (nr 7, scored in the ACL final) is set to move to K3 League club Hwaseong FC on a six-month loan due to his military duty. How does that work then? Hwaseong aren't a military club, are they?! I thought military service had to be with the cops or the soldiers? Or i...

Re: The 'Guess The Stadium' Thread

Also, much as I hate to congratulate anyone with an Ipswich donkey for a profile picture - That's some impressive deductions there Gyeongmaman, the pieces seem to fit together... Still struggling to find that park though.

Re: The 'Guess The Stadium' Thread

Slight digression here but I just found this on another forum - for all that we complain about running tracks making for soulless grounds, this 1910's era photo from the UK suggest that isn't necessarily a foregone conclusion if you can actually fill the bloody stands up...

Re: Yonhap: 252 K League footballers eligible for free agency

I wonder if this applies to the whole K-league or just the Classic? Could result in a handful of decent-ish players dropping down to Challenge or National/K3 if they have nowhere else to go...

Re: 2017 K3 League season

Maybe it's just the way they're standing/sitting/squatting in that photo, but Pyeongtaek's token foreign player looks incredibly tiny. Also, the one player at the back right who can't figure out the basics of getting in a straight line doesn't bode well for their defensive wall-making capabilities...
