Ex-Daejeon man Alvaro Silva has popped in Vietnam. He scored on his Ha Noi FC debut in a 3-2 home win versus Quang Ninh. He's currently the third foreigner in a league where only two are allowed, but with fellow new signing Moses Oloya away at the AFCON for a few weeks and a debut goal and decent pe...
Hi all. I'll be visiting Korea this week and have a fan versus groundhopper dilemma. Should I go to Seongnam v Incheon or Suwon v Gwangju on Sunday? I followed Incheon for the ten years I lived in Korea, but Seongnam isn't a very interesting place and Tancheon is a fairly dull stadium that I've alre...
Don't like the timing with the Asian Cup coming so soon, but there does have to be accountability. His starting 11s and substitutions were indefensible. Yes, bizarre timing, especially with the Asian Cup so close. It's been said on these pages before how difficult it can be for Asian teams to attra...

I've done day-trips from Seoul the last two years, but unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it this year. I very much second that it's worth doing and there is enough in and around the town to entertain between the football. My personal favourite is the world's most valuable sun dial in th...

Sense indeed. I've posted on here before how much I rate PCY and I'm very happy to see him go. He hadn't played much in the build-up to London and still scored that great goal in the medal where he single-handedly beat Japan's defence. Ahn is probably right when he says "it looks like the coach...
This morning I saw a programme called 'Sports Challengers' on cable (it was Channel 1 on C&M in Yongsan-Gu) and it was an hour long show about the Challengers League. It was a small studio with three panelists and various Challengers League jerseys around the place (I noticed at least Uijeongbu ...
Went to the Daejeon vs Seoul game earlier this evening and it went all kinds of crazy. Daejeon were 2-1 up when a Seoul player went down injured just before the hour. Daejeon played on, but Seoul cleared, and Daejeon still played on. When they eventually missed, Seoul's manager called his players of...

A really interesting thread, so thanks for reopening it. With the exception of the first game, which comfortably sits alone at #1, the others are all equally memorable. 1. Wales 2 Italy 1 (Euro 2004 Qualifier, Millenium Stadium Cardiff) I've been at a full Millenium Stadium in Cardiff for the rugby,...

Soccerway has possession at 64-36 and shots 9-1, both in Seoul's favour. http://int.soccerway.com/matches/2014/02/25/asia/afc-champions-league/fc-seoul/central-coast-mariners-fc/1607944/?ICID=PL_MS_03 Seoul looked very good going forward in the first game of the post-Dejan era and played some lovely...
Korea are playing Japan at Incheon's Munhak Stadium on May 17th (I assume that's the WC Stadium, although the new rugby-specific stadium is near there, too). This also happens to be the first weekend of the K-League World Cup break (but I guess there'll still be N-League, Challengers League, and may...
