2015 WK-League

Postby OttoSilver » Tue Mar 17, 2015 8:17 pm

The WK League kicked off this week with the same teams as last year. The only things that seems to have changes is that each team will have a home ground instead of everyone hopping around between 4 grounds, two of which are not close to any of the teams.

First games kicked off on Monday:

Seoul 0-2 Daejeon
Incheon 1-1 Hwacheon
Busan Sangmu 1-5 Suwon

No point giving the standings yet.

The second round of games are done:

ICHEON Daekyo 0-0 Incheon
Hwacheon 2-1 Seoul
Daejeon 3-1 Busan Sangmu

I was not aware that the team from Goyang moved to Icheon. I wonder if the ladies were expected to move to Icheon, or if they just ply there and train in Seoul or somewhere. I would not be happy to move from Goyang to Icheon.

EDIT: Looking back at the post where the teams will play I noticed that SteveW mentioned that Icheon will play at "Icheon" Stadium (in Bubal). It just never occurred to me that there was a new name in the list.

Round 5:

Suwon 0-0 Icheon
Daejeon 2-0 Hwacheon
Busan 0-4 Incheon

Round 6:

Seoul 0-0 Busan
Incheon 3-1 Suwon
Icheon 0-1 Daejeon

I was in Jamshil for the Seoul v Busan game. The teams were not. For some reason the game was played down south somewhere, in one of the stadiums they used last year. For the life of me I cant imagine why.

Some nice photos came with the stories for Round 5

http://www.kfa.or.kr/news/news_intervie ... un%3D11403

The standings are slowly taking shape, and the shape is pretty much the same as last year.

1 Daejeon (12 points with 4 wins)
2 Incheon (11 points with 3 wins)
3 Icheon (8 points with 2 wins)
4 Suwon (8 points with 2 wins)
5 Hwacheon (8 points with 2 wins)
6 Seoul (1 points with 0 wins)
7 Busan (1 points with 0 wins)

The Hwacheon team use to be there, then they make like a tree and left.

I still don't have a way to go to a game unless I have a day off or something. I mean, I can go to Incheon, but I'll have to miss half the game. 3-4 hours of travel for half a match, no thanks.

Wend to the Suwon vs Incheon game tonight.

I was 5 minutes late and missed the first goal for Incheon, but no worries since I had a warm pizza to make up for it. Just 10 minutes in and Incheon went 0-2 up with a really nice break away, solo goal.

Suwon kept fighting and one of their waygoogs scored a beautiful goal all on her own by passing the keeper and chipping it in. A short while later she pretty much did it all over again to equalize the game.

The back and forth continued and shortly before the half time break Suwon managed to take the lead but gave it up again.

The second half was an entertaining but messy affair. Both teams had really good chances but every time a foot or a keeper's hand got in the way.

In the 90th minute a Suwon player put in a terrible, clumsy tackle on an Incheon player inside their own box and gave away a clear penalty. The Incheon player put it away easily and the game ended 3-4

Incheon had two traveling singers with a drum and a line up of songs. I was almost impressed.

Suwon had two guys who seemed like they might be mentally challenged. I was not sure because they might also have been just Bluewings supporters. Each had a drum, sitting about 20 rows apart. They didn't seem to be angry with each other, but they were obviously also not working together. To say they were annoying is an understatement. They have one single chant. Think the annoying Daehan Minguk chant, but substitute "Suwon Sea Salt!" That. Was. All.

One of the two idiots would from time to time make a really loud sound that resembled someone heaving kimchi and soju >.<

Oh, and just after the half time break one of the fools changed into, you guessed it, hie Bluewings shirt :)

Spent the last couple of Monday afternoons in the agreeable surroundings of Hyochang Park watching the "Amazones". The league table does not lie - they are not very good. Last week they were up against Daejeon Sportstoto who beat them 4-1 and yesterday they played Icheon Daekyo who only managed to beat them 2-1 but missed plenty of other chances.

The first game was more entertaining featuring lots of diving, a missed penalty and some horrific goalkeeping. However, daeguowl was also present which inevitably meant ending up in a noraebang somewhere listening to him belt out FC Seoul songs (he knows all the numbers off by heart).

Sportstoto had no fans and Seoul just a few middle school kids but yesterday Daekyo brought a drummer who led a handful of suited young men (and one woman), who had presumably been sent out of the Daekyo office for the afternoon, in some rather awkward chanting. He would teach them the chant and then make them repeat it. I was accosted by another chap in a suit who insisted I take a Daekyo clapper thing. I did as the seats were wet and it was handy to sit on.

All in all it's good entertainment for a weekday afternoon. The quality of the crossing was quite decent and some of the challenges were satisfyingly robust but the shooting was Park Chu Young-esque. It seems that all the teams have a couple of Brazilians (players), although I don't recall any of them actually making it on to the field at any point so presumably they're not that good if they don't get picked ahead of those that do. There wasn't any tension in either of the matches though as Seoul were so poor. In fact, it's not too dissimilar to K-League all round.

Park Eun Seon was among the spectators at both games which was surprising as I thought she played in Russia now.

Took a walk around the stadium at halftime and while the bit everyone sits in behind the dugouts is very nice, the other three sides of Hyochang really are crumbling these days.

I know this is wrong and I don't wish to come over all Sepp here, but I was rather taken with the Seoul number 12 who plays left back and wears her shorts much shorter and her shirt much tighter than all the others. And she was by far Seoul's best player.

Hyochang is a bit of a dump. The pitch was awful when I was on it for the Eland fan day. I'm surprised they actually play games on it.

Do you not remember that one of Sportstoto's Brazillians startedthe match and scored a goal and the chunky one looked quite decent when she came on...

Lots of Sportstoto players scored! But come to think of it, you're right. In my defence, I wasn't wearing my glasses in the first half but I was on the Cass and I think we figured out at halftime she must be Brazilian on account of her clearly not being Korean. Did the chunky one come on? I do remember us being slightly mean toward her while she was warming up...

Just where is this stadium/field?

Incheon and Suwon have their Waegooks on the field all the time. Not sure why this lot does not use their players.
