South Korea vs Jordan

I'm predicting that the Jordanians are going to try to play very tight, getting everyone behind the ball (I've never seen them play before). Even if they go a goal or two behind I suspect they won't change it too much. I doubt the Koreans will concede a goal but on their recent form I doubt there'll...

Re: Korea v Poland (WC2002) had 5K+ empty seats?

I hate FIFA too. The World Cup in 2002 was more like a trade convention than a football tournament. You could buy T-shirts with "FIFA" on them but you couldn't buy national team replica shirts for love nor money. I spent a day wandering around Niigata trying to find some national team gear...

Euro 2008

Did Switzerland just play a Euro warm-up friendly against Liechtenstein? Oh my God. They may be the geographically natural team to play against for a Swiss-Austrian joint hosting but seriously? (The Swiss won 3-0) I don't think you can read too much into beating Liechtenstein, but the last time I sa...

Re: Korea v Poland (WC2002) had 5K+ empty seats?

I was at the Denmark Senegal game. I don't remember there being masses of empty seats and I remember huge queues to get the bus back into town, but I do remember moving seat several times to stay out of the sun. It was hot sitting in the shade, I've no idea how Thomas Gravesen didn't die. They cover...

Re: K-league - Round 10

After living here for so long I forgot how good soccer-specific stadiums are...it was a great little stadium but the location was bizarre, right in the middle of the posco factory complex. It's not quite in the middle of the POSCO steelworks. I would describe it more as in the middle of a (modest) ...

Re: Busan I'park

Gyeongnam may be closer to Geoje than Busan, but there are others round here that know more about that than I do (just don't take their advice about using taxis). :wink: Busan I'park have also been known to play in several different places in Busan. The World Cup stadium is easy enough to get to on ...

Re: 2008 AFC Champions League

Is there a financial return and ranking points available for winning group games, even when meaningless (like I think there is in Europe)? Pohang really should try harder to beat Binh Duong. Did anyone see the match (I was in Japan).

Re: K-League - Round 11

Once again not particularly impressed with Suwon, but you can't argue with their run of results. I thought Pohang looked more purposeful going forward and the Suwon chance I can remember, apart from the goal, was blasted well wide by Edu. Pohang had some decent chances, were inches away a couple of ...

Re: The Game of Their Lives: DPRK at 1966 World Cup doco

My girlfriend did a piece about this film for Radio Free Asia when it first came out. I've never actually seen the whole film, just bits of it, but I think it's great the way people in Middlesbrough really embraced the Koreans and went along to support them at Goodison Park. I remember telling her a...

Re: Korea conflict: North balks at using South's flag

Have the North Korean FA given any reason for why they don't want to play in Seoul other than "we don't want to"? If results go their way in the other games, they could probably drop the game if it matters that much to them. But why bother? It's still all very mysterious to me. :smt102 Acc...

How does the tie-breaker work in Group F? Goal difference or head-to-head?

You could just blame POSCO.

To be fair to the Korean effort this year, Melbourne aren't exactly setting their group on fire either.

One other piece of useless information to add. I saw the two Suwon team buses at the Core Riviera Hotel in Jeonju and they were spotless.

Re: K-League - Round 8

As mustoe02 says, the first half was pretty flat, even though I'd have to say I thought Jeonbuk had the better of it. Number 18 (is his name Ristic or Stebo?) was leading the line without Cho Jae Jin and this ensured that any chance went miles wide (of the few chances that there were). Things steppe...
