Re: 2008 AFC Champions League

Pohang lost 1-0 to Changchun. They can still win the group if they win out their remaining games and Adelaide and Changchun conspire to draw their last game. That is assuming that Binh Duong don't do them a favour or two along the way :wink: Chunnam managed to beat Chonburi 1-0 with what looks like ...

Re: Sensational Debut for Cho Dong-gun

Jeju 0-3 Seongnam (1,823) Nice gate, in a stadium that holds 42,256. Now I know where I need to go to get away from all the crowds in Korea (as going up a mountain won't do it). Daegu can probably feel a little bit unlucky after the game in Seoul. Nothing much happened for the first 30 minutes and ...

Re: Prediction League 2008

Not that this will allow you to watch footy, but Arirang is free to air in NZ, at least in Christchurch. This creates a somewhat unusual situation where a person without a dish or cable (still most people in this town) catch TV1, Channel 2, TV 3, C4, Prime, Canterbury TV and... Arirang. :| This is ...

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

I'm still puzzled as to why the North Korean FA would agree to play the game in Shanghai. Well, when you run a communist regime on its last legs, once which doesn't even recognize the existence of the ROK regime, playing their anthem and flying their flag in Juche land would be a bit of a loss of f...

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

Well, you heard it here first folks. I'd love to crow about predicting the result but as Cyclops says, it wasn't exactly hard. If the North were going to score it was going to be doozy from 35 metres and while the South looked to have slightly more idea up front, they hardly ever troubled the keeper...

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

I'm still puzzled as to why the North Korean FA would agree to play the game in Shanghai. Surely, surely, they have more chance of winning in Pyeongyang, especially with a partisan crowd. So why agree to the switch? Speculating wildly again, maybe FIFA threatened to award the match to ROK if they di...

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

With DPRK already having beaten Jordan in Amman I don't think either of the Koreas should be too worried about not qualifying for the fourth round. Whether you come top of the group or not might provide some pride and some FIFA ranking points but is probably not too significant in the ultimate aim o...

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

One thing I was told by friends who grew up in East Germany, was that East Germans really did support West Germany whenever they played East Germany. Must've been a real pisser when they lost in '74.

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

Talking of idiotic propaganda victories. They (I guess they are USFK) are still insisting that people don't wear shorts and t-shirts to Panmunjeom for fear of handing a propaganda victory to the North. Now perhaps the North might get a kick out of putting some impoverished westerner who can "on...

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

It all seems pretty odd to me. I wouldn't be surprised if the South Korean FA put considerable pressure on FIFA to have the game moved and once again FIFA is swayed by where the money is. The thought of losing a game in a hostile atmosphere and handing a propaganda victory to the North was too much ...

Re: No bottles... really, they mean it

There was a girl who scanned my ticket with her barcode thing at the "turnstile".

That will have confirmed to them electronically that I successfully transfered the ticket the whole 10 metres from the ticket window to the turnstile.

Re: No bottles... really, they mean it

Ahh, so that's what it means, "no comedy bombs". I thought it was just reminding people not to bring bombs into the stadium, like the "no horse-drawn carts" signs on the motorway in Turkey. I saw those signs at Suwon. My bag didn't get searched. Some places in the US don't even l...

Re: First Weekend Results

I have to agree with mustoe02's stadium o-philia. I was on what I assume is the east side (opposite side from the unnecessarily long batman roof) and there was plenty of room up where I was sitting. I remember once going to a baseball game in the US and getting to the stadium only to see a big elect...

Re: First Weekend Results

I was at the Suwon game. I would say the stadium was half full, maybe a tad over half. There was still a long, slow line of people waiting to get tickets at 3.15 (I was late) and probably some of those didn't get in until half time. That means there's a couple hundred fair-weather fans whose experie...
