Re: European groundhopping thread

Uh-oh, you've got me counting now and I think I'm on 19. I have been promising myself I'd go watch a match in Luxembourg when there's one of sufficient importance. But when was the last time there was an important match in Luxembourg? According to someone on the Scottish news a few weeks back, you c...

Some nutter in the Guardian:

I'm off to Deventer on Monday in the Netherlands. One of my favourite grounds.

Re: Europe general 2017/18

IFK Mariehamn from the Åland Islands won the Finnish league last year for the first time in their history. That would be the Finnish equivalent of a team from the Orkney Islands winning the Scottish Premiership. Their home ground in Mariehamn holds 1,635 people according to UEFA rules. 1,637 were of...

Well that didn't really work. The idea was to get him to stick around. Maybe the "you've been missed" wasn't such a great idea. :smt010

Surely one of the fundamental assumptions of season-based seasons is that it all evens out over the season. There's no such thing as an unlucky season. The table never lies.

Or so the thinking goes.

Re: Europe general 2017/18

Hope you guys are well. I miss the banter on this page: so I especially came back after he Rangers result. Taiwan is a bit of a hole when it comes to football. I play Sunday league and one of the national players joins us to keep fit. There are two states in Taiwan: alcoholism and workaholiism. I d...

Re: Europe general 2017/18

Is the UK leaving Europe or something?

11 UK and Gibraltar teams entered in the Europa League First Qualifying Round (including Rangers) and 11 UK and Gibraltar teams got knocked out in the Europa League First Qualifying Round.

That's actually quite impressive.

It says on the Bbc that he's been researching Korean football in the last couple of weeks.

Has he been on here? :smt006

Not as empty as it is now.

Daejeon, Incheon and Gyeongnam all have decent, football-specific grounds.

Re: Seoul satellite city trying to land pro football club at new stadium

I suppose fading into obscurity in another white elephant would be a fitting demise for this team, but will the KFA ever wake up and put an end to club relocation? The Jeju franchise have been doing quite well recently. I don't know why the KFA would want to ban club relocation. Suwon Bluewings wer...

Actually I suspect part of the problem might be that we are having too many kids and the important business of updating ROKfootball is being neglected.

Re: 2017 K3 League Basic (D5) season

I'm fairly certain that nobody is reading the K3 stuff any longer. Shame. I am reading it. I can't decide whether the eerie silence round here is good because it reflects the atmosphere at the games and Korean football in general or bad because it used to be quite fun back in the day. Too many peop...

2017 Confederations Cup

Are we fully out of Kiwis now on this forum? It's a shame, because I thought NZ did quite well last night in the Confederations Cup match against Mexico. Even though they lost 2-1 and have been eliminated now, they did a lot better than the 2014 World Cup playoff, hit the bar with five minutes left ...
