How many crazy Pocheon-following ajummas can there be? Would have to guess it's the same one from four years ago.

I searched for 커피 on my map app and there were about 5 markers in the centre of town. Dont go poo-pooing the place now.
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.

Pocheon has a bunch of outlet stores and duck restaurants, Herb Island, the Korea National Arboretum, the Africa Museum of Art, and Art Valley. I've been to all but the last one. Maybe that's where all Pocheon's ajumma fans hang out?

I've heard that they've dicked over quite a few workers at the Africa Museum of Art. :(

I don't think we ever came to a clear understanding on that, but from what I understood, the players in the money teams can earn a decent living wage. With win bonuses and the like they can reach about 4 million for a given month? Martyrs players likely get their kimbab free before the match and a bottle of soju after to help with the humiliation.

Be interesting to see how the foreign player thing works out for them.

Presumably they aren't going to be able to pay enough to attract foreign guys to move here so you'll be looking at people already in country?

But they will probably have visa issues getting permission to play football as well as whatever else it is they are doing - working, studying etc?

I'm not sure if foreign students are allowed to work here - that might be the way for them to go.

Is this just going to make a bigger gap between rich and poor though? Hwaseong might be able to sign a semi-decent Brazilian...Martyrs...not so much.

Hmm.. The real situation is not going now like you guys' thinking. I heard that some spanish players already praticed with Martyrs players in this season. Yeah, There are many foriegners to play football already. The problem is whether they can play better than Korean?!

Practicing with and being legally allowed to play are two different things though. Immigration will be involved.

And as you say, just being foreign doesn't make you good.

Immigration will surely only be directly involved if they get paid. Are the Martyr's players getting paid? Wasn't Cyclops on here a while back explaining that some teams in K3 practice twice a week? A hobby is a hobby.
