How do the Hong Kong teams rank against the teams from Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Indonesia? I know that some of the Thai teams (Buriram?) have some money-bags owners behind them and some of the Indonesian sides get home gate many times what Korean teams draw. Are the Hong Kong sides smaller t...
Yes, your points is right, but let's not forget that Jeonbuk has a great squad depth as well. Can overcome the problems with injuries. It doesn't matter how much you spend, it can happen to anyone, even Man City, who have spent so much on their squad they could have built Jeonbuk a new stadium. htt...
Have I understood correctly that there will be two levels of play-offs in the top tier, one to decide the overall Nation's League winner and one to decide the team that qualifies for the European Championships? If only one group winner fails to qualify in the usual qualifiers will they automatically...
It's baffling why they think any of this makes sense, but given Korea's relatively poor performance in last year's ACL (no teams in the quarter-finals and only one team (Jeju) out of the groups) it's perhaps not surprising that Korea has been pegged back a bit. Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal got to the fin...
The countdown has begun in earnest now in Germany. Moon Jae-in is appearing on TV ads wishing everyone peace on Earth and the German state broadcaster has 10 do's and don'ts for visitors to the Winter Olympics ; don't wear colourful socks, watch out for the soju, every man for himself on the buses, ...
Many are saying that Jeonbuk has already won the title. Do you agree? No. No team ever wins a title without a match played. It doesn't matter how strong your team is. Injuries happen, people fall out with each other, top profiles get bigger and better offers to go elsewhere, committees decide you c...
I've tried before to understand how UEFA's new Nation's League is supposed to work. Now that they've made the draw for the groups the BBC have tried to explain it to me again, but I still don't understand. Tiers, groups, play-offs, some qualify for the European Championship, some don't. What are the...

Show me the way to Plough Lane I’m tired and I want to go home I had one myself many years ago And I want one of my own. Mipo will be pleased to hear that AFC Wimbledon have finally received planning permission to build a stadium back in the Borough of Merton, 200 metres from their old home Plough ...

The Bundesliga is heading into its winter break in Germany and this year's table-dominating Bayern are .... Bayern. They're nine points clear of their closest rival as the other teams can't make up their minds which one of them should mount a serious challenge. If only the German Bundesliga was as w...

If you make the cup final a two-legged affair you get what you deserve.

South Korea drawn into Group F with Germany, Mexico and Sweden. Argh, I was hoping they'd go into Group G with England. Toward the end of the draw, with only three balls remaining, there was a one-in-three chance. Oh well. If you write the book in German (or Swedish) I will personally buy a copy. :...
