Re: Where them teams be on this here map?

I like Daejeon Citizen in the K1, but I think you need more than two question marks for that! Now that all that Olympic nonsense is over, Gangwon FC are going to be at Chuncheon all this season. Both Daejeon teams are at the World Cup stadium at the moment, although Korail will move back to Hanbat l...

Re: Rooney’s perfect striking partner?

Thank you, I'm looking forward to seeing what the Guardian has in store for us next year. Hopefully some tales from Cabbage Country. :0)

Rooney’s perfect striking partner?

Interesting article in the Sunday Guardian newspaper today. Nice to see Korean football getting some more international exposure. http://www.theguardian.com/uk/sport/ If you’re old enough, You’re good enough It’s one of the oldest cliches in modern football, the goal scoring grandmother. Messi scori...

Re: 2018 Korean FA Cup Rounds 1 & 2

Ahhh, it's Yeoju Sejong, not Yeosu Sejong. I've been on a few false trails before to lower league grounds, but that would have been the granddaddy of them all!

Re: World Cup 2018

Less than 100 Days to go? No wonder people are already panicking about injuries to Neymar, Kane and others.

Hopefully Harry Kane makes a full recovery in time for the tournament, if only so that I can spend the entire month calling England ‘that Harry Kane country’

Re: Winter Olympics

Wow, that pole sitting really is competitive. The guy at the end has even brought along his guitar to encourage the other participants to give up.

"And now here's another song by Celine Dion..."

I wouldn't last five minutes.

Re: 2018 K3 League

No sign of fixtures yet, but the teams and grounds are up on the website. Pyeongtaek did get promoted, and Chungju are sensibly going to be playing in the sports park rather than the big stadium so that's another new place for the 48 club.

Re: 2018 AFC Champions League

Last time I saw a game in Hong Kong was in 2010 and South China were the big team with their big stadium. They appear to have done a Rangers (not the Hong Kong one) and disappeared from the league.

Re: The "48"

With only eight teams left in there, I guess they're happy to kept going anyway they can. From memory Cheonan Football Centre doesn't have a particularly big seating capacity either and Cheonan have been there for a good long while.

Re: The "48"

Missed last season, but if they give me a visa, I'll be back again this year and top priority in Korea is obviously going to be getting back in to the 48 club. Of the 53 teams, I reckon I'll have to visit last year's new clubs in Pyeongtaek and Busan and maybe Yeosu if they are starting this year. C...

Re: I'm turning into my mum

It's certainly a good attempt at being completely baffling.

I reckon the AFC Cup still beats it though. Who wouldn't want to watch a competition that has zonal and inter-zonal semi-finals?

Re: Classic no more, Challenge no more

I'm assuming that K-league 2 will be the top league, would hate to think Korean football is becoming sensible just as I'm moving back.

Re: 2017 K3 League Basic (D5) season

Excellent, another volleyball stadium to tick off when I'm back in Korea this winter. I've always been impressed by the atmosphere at Korean volleyball games, it's as good as the atmosphere at baseball games and with the added advantage of having something worth watching as well.

Re: 2018 World Cup qualification

Ah, not the goalscorer I was thinking of, it was the captain on the day. Can't find the article I (mis)remembered reading but it is this guy here... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_McIlvenny I'd never have brought it up if I'd done a little research and found out that he was a soapdodger. No wonder...
