Looks like Goyang are on the move (from their Facebook page today), that's a cracking venue for the fifth division...

This is huge! No more ice rink?! The Rev. Cho deals the cards once again! I might have to reconsider my options - this team just got too big for its boots! Still, playing there and losing 10-1 at home.....surely, that says Basic more than anything!

The other thing about that post is that the photo from Byulmuri shows about twenty ultras but now they are down to the Bee Gees and me. It must be from 2011.

FC Uijeongbu seem to have a fair bit of cash to splash this season, they've announced the signing of 38 year-old former Gyeongnam goalkeeper Kwon Jung-hyuk (who recently featured in a trivia thread question) but they've also gone all exotic for their foreign imports - they've signed 25 year-old Chinese defender Cao Guodong from Hunan Billows and 22 year-old Thai midfielder Thammanoon Salee. Salee was most recently on the books of Thai Cup winners Sukhothai FC, they were in AFC Champions League playoff action yesterday where they lost out to Shanghai East Asia so they were quite a big deal though I've no idea how much he figured in their first team plans during 2016. He must have been relatively highly thought of as he signed for Portuguese side Naval in October 2015 having previously had trials at Red Star and Partizan Belgrade. Good to see that in signing for a fifth division Korean side his career trajectory has surged upwards several levels from those dark days spent in Portugal and Eastern Europe.

They signed TWO waegooks?
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.

They've now signed a third... 20 year old Vietnamese defender Nguyen Huu Anh Tai on loan from Hoang Anh Gia Lai.

They've put a fair bit of thought into this...

Last I heard Uijeongbu had ambitions to enter kleague. But their team was certainly not up to standard. Maybe taking things more seriously now?

When I saw them host Cheongju City last season there were three foreigners in Uijeongbu kits - two from Ghana and one from Brazil - though none of them got any playing time in the match:

I wonder if the group of Thai youngsters I saw at that match last season knew something the rest of us didn't ...
In Yangju, if your cabbage doesn't understand you and you have valid reason for not eating it, then it is ok to go to other vegetables for your kimchi - though strictly nothing from south of Namyangju. -- Martyrs Forever

I'm guessing now there's a proper pyramid system at least sort-of being put in place and getting a club promoted from level 4 or 5 up to the top couple of divisions without having to bribe your way in is now a vaguely realistic prospect (assuming the KFA don't change everything again), clubs down the lower end - and more to the point, the people funding them - might start taking things a little more seriously. Wouldn't be surprised to see a few more clubs looking to step things up over the next couple of seasons - Uijeongbu has a lot going for it geographically as well, plenty of people up that way and there's no other clubs currently catering to fans in northeast Seoul, plus they're not competing with baseball and basketball like E-Land have to; so if they can make this work they could well do okay.
This season I will be mostly supporting :
KLClassic - Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors / KLChallenge & National League - Anyone & Everyone / K3 League - Jeonju Citizen

Just in Seoul there's Jungnang Chorus Mustang in Jungnang-gu and Seoul United in Nowon-gu (unless they've permanently moved). Then in north/northeastern Gyeonggi you've got Uijeongbu, Yangju, and Pocheon. The stadiums in Uijeongbu and Yangju are both on Seoul Metro Line 1, and Line 7 is being extended up into Pocheon. Don't think it would take that much longer to reach Goyang's ground, either.

Never been convinced with the argument that another team nearby hurts the attendance. The basketball and football seasons don't overlap that much and baseball isn't a sport. It's disappointing that E-land haven't been able to bring in the crowds, but it takes a while to build a support and a winning team is generally the quickest way to achieve it.

So there's a full round of fixtures on the 26th Feb? I don't think Goyang have a game until April.

K3 Basic fixtures list on the official KFA website:
http://joinkfa.com/league2/league_singl ... 7&keyword=

First round brings in the new season on February 26th. Nice that they've scheduled things so it's possible to attend the start of both the Advanced (25th) and Basic (26th) this season. Here are the fixtures (and 2016 league position):

[01] 15:00 Pyeongtaek (x) - Buyeo (16th)
[02] 15:00 Seoul Jungnang (13th) - Busan FC (x)
[03] 15:00 Uijeongbu (20th) - Siheung (12th)
[04] 14:00 Pyeongchang (14th) - Seoul United (17th)

Off: Goyang Citizen

Nothing makes me miss Korea quite as much as a K3 League Basic opening day fixture list.
