Re: 2018 AFC Champions League

Suwon glide through to the knockout stage by winning 1-0 at Kashima courtesy of a Dejan goal. Sydney couldn't beat Shanghai Shenua at home anyway, so even if Suwon had lost they would still have qualified. As pointed out at the top of this thread, the order of the group was exactly the same as it wa...

Re: 2018 K3 League

The big lad pictured above came on after 35 minutes when Euijeonbu had just lost their fifth goal. In terms of mobility and getting down for shots, how did he compare with the original Michelin Man, Lee Woon-jae? https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/woon-jae-lee-03032010-cote-divoire-coree-du-sud-m...

See, this was the problem with watching K3 in Korea. It always made me feel like I ought to be playing, not watching.

Re: 2018 K League 1

13k for a 'supermatch' with a thousand more down the road watching the baseball. Truly the kleague is dying a slow death... 5th versus 11th not pulling them in like it used to? The last time I saw Pohang vs Jeonbuk (back in 2009) there were 8,000 there. That was in the midst of Pariahs's reign of g...

Re: 2018 N-league season

That's all very well for construction companies, but what about the garden furniture industry? When PatiosFC win the K-League three years in a row you'll know it's on the way. Google informs me that they already have a badge. https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/378800000856517576/ySudk3lp_400x400....

Re: 2018 N-league season

Welcome back to somewhere that is 8000km from me. I think it was Korail vs Gangneung that I went to watch at Hanbat with SteveW back in the day when he was doing the 48. Good to see ROKfootball keeping up the representation. You may be misunderstanding the point of the 5000 seater rule. As long as t...

2018 Korean FA Cup (all rounds)

Keeping Round 3 results in the same thread; maybe a helpful admin can change the title ... Do we still have any helpful admins around here, or are we now just tossing and turning rudderless in the storm of social media? I can change the title on my comment, but not the whole thread. Maybe that need...

Re: 2018 K League 1

Double as many matches played now as the last time I posted the league table and it's still Gyeongnam and Pohang in the top two places.

If it stays like this until the end of the season I'll do the first MOTD of next season in just my undies.

Re: 2018 AFC Champions League

Good results in this week's matches for Jeonbuk and bottom of the K-League Ulsan who beat Melbourne 6-2. Both teams are now through to the next round with one match left to play. Jeju are now eliminated and Suwon managed to make things interesting by losing 4-1 at home to Sydney. Suwon need to win a...

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! So did no one on their way to the Olympics end up in Pyeongyang instead of Pyeongchang? That's really rather disappointing. https://www.wsj...

Re: 2018 AFC Champions League

The red card is very harsh. Even a yellow is harsh there as the guy is just asleep. But it sounds like there was an excellent atmosphere and the away support was decent too.

Isn't Brazil fifth for population? According to this list , only two of the top eight countries (Brazil and Nigeria) qualified. Brazil is pretty close to being in the top five.

World Cup 2018

It's less than 100 days to go now. The Korean team are in a tough group F with Germany, Sweden and Mexico. If by some miracle they mange to get out of that group, they might end up facing Brazil in the round of 32. Apparently the Korean team will be basing themselves in Saint Petersburg, although no...

It's already a 49,000-seater, so they're not far off.
