Good to see Korail losing, hoping for more of the same this season :finger

My newly adopted team Yongin City didn't fare much better though it would seem. OttoSilver will be pleased to know I'm taking my newfound supporting duties seriously and I've answered the Update Your Club call for Yongin. One thing I did notice is that they've got a match fixer on their books in the shape of ex-Daegu defender Yang Seung-won. Not happy about that. Bae Hae-min, a youngster who was at one time reasonably highly regarded at FC Seoul, and indeed became the first Korean to join a Czech Republic side when he went on loan to Viktoria Zizkov, is also at Yongin. Neither chap was involved in Saturday's defeat.

Whoot!

I was planning on updating two or three of the Challengers teams this weekend. I'm even taking my camera to visit the Seoul United - Icheon game on Saturday.
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

I don't know when the names of the National League sides were changed to "City Government FC" but it looks a bit daft. I suppose technically it's the correct translation but none of the clubs use that as their official English names so I don't really think the Wikipedia articles should. Yongin's club badge clearly says Yongin City, Gimhae's says Gimhae FC and although we generally refer to the club as Changwon City, their club logo and website refers to the club as Changwon FC with no mention of City at all.

March 15 results
Busan TC 0-1 Ulsan Mipo
Gangneung 3-2 Changwon
Gimhae 0-2 Daejeon Korail
Gyeongju HNP 3-1 Yongin
Mokpo 3-1 Cheonan

Code: Select all

Pos Team                         P   W   D   L   F   A Pts  GD
  1 Gangneung City               2   2   0   0   5   2   6   3
  2 Mokpo City                   2   2   0   0   4   1   6   3
  3 Busan Transportation Corp.   2   1   0   1   2   1   3   1
  4 Daejeon Korail               2   1   0   1   2   1   3   1
  5 Gyeongju HNP                 2   1   0   1   3   3   3   0
  6 Ulsan Mipo Dockyard          2   1   0   1   1   1   3   0
  7 Cheonan City                 2   1   0   1   2   3   3  -1
  8 Gimhae FC                    2   1   0   1   1   2   3  -1
  9 Changwon City                2   0   0   2   2   4   0  -2
 10 Yongin City                  2   0   0   2   1   5   0  -4


Looks like a busy few minutes during the second half of the game for Ulsan Mipo's Alex Rafael da Silva Antonio - he scored the only goal in the 68th minute, got booked in the 69th minute and picked up his second yellow to get sent off in the 72nd minute. Don't know exactly what went on but I'd hypothesise he scored, celebrated a bit too much and got booked then started mouthing off to the ref and was given his marching orders. Of course they could have been two bone crunching tackles and not related to the goal...

Yongin were doing so well against Gyeongju too, was goalless at half time and they actually took the lead through Park Sang-hee twelve minutes after the break. The Isotopes then hit back with three goals in the final seventeen minutes to secure the points.

Read the match report and it would seem he got himself sent off for kicking the corner flag to bits during his goal celebration. Twat.

It does look as though there's some sort of competition on to have the longest possible English club name.. Busan should stick a few extra words like City, Mass and Urban in their club name to trump Gyeongju HNP. They could add Seagulls on to the end as well in a Ulsan Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Dolphin fashion just to elongate the name even further... Busan City Mass Urban Transportation Corporation Seagulls FC would take some beating.

Gangneung 1-2 Daejeon Korail
Mokpo 4-1 Gimhae
Busan TC 1-0 Gyeongju HNP
Yongin 0-1 Changwon
Ulsan Mipo 2-0 Cheonan

Code: Select all

Pos Team                         P   W   D   L   F   A Pts  GD
  1 Mokpo City                   3   3   0   0   8   2   9   6
  2 Gangneung City               3   2   0   1   6   4   6   2
  3 Daejeon Korail               3   2   0   1   4   2   6   2

 10 Yongin City                  3   0   0   3   1   6   0  -5


Top of the table clash next weekend as Mokpo travel to face Gangneung. This is easily Mokpo's best ever start to a season by a very long way so this'll be an indication of how far they can take that.

15 games in and not a single draw so far, that's fairly unusual.

I also see that someone has put a curse on Yongin. :albino:
Bring back King Cha.

Indeed... Yongin host the Daejeon Teamsnatchers as well next Saturday. No better time to get the first win of the season :finger

They're wrecking my pools coupon!

(What's truly unusual though is seeing Mokpo top of the table!

A 1-0 win for Busan Transport this evening over Changwon puts them joint top with Mokpo ahead of the rest of the games tomorrow. Solid start to the season for Busan, it took them six games to get their first win last season (also against Changwon) so they look as though they've got a bit more about them this season. Perhaps they needed some folk in the stands to clear off before they could turn it on ;)

I heard that he only ever went to the matches to tell them that he wasn't really interested. :albino:
