2018 N-league season

Postby Rothesay Saint » Sat Apr 07, 2018 7:32 pm

Four weeks in, and no thread for the N-league this season?

As the cherry blossoms battle it out with the snow, Gimhae and Gyeongju lead the way with four wins out of four. Daejeon Korail six points behind them in third and Gangneung yet to pick up a point this season.

I've no idea if this will be the last year of the N-league, but I do know that the 5000 seater rule has definitely been scrapped. Either that or the bulk order for garden furniture to be delivered to Hanbat practice pitch this afternoon was 4950 seats short.

Korail 2-0 Gangneung, I was 20 minutes late because I went to the wrong stadium (the fixtures released at the beginning of the year had it at World Cup practice pitch) and I got asked "Where are you from?" on five different occasions. Nice to be back in Korea. :)

Welcome back to somewhere that is 8000km from me. I think it was Korail vs Gangneung that I went to watch at Hanbat with SteveW back in the day when he was doing the 48. Good to see ROKfootball keeping up the representation. You may be misunderstanding the point of the 5000 seater rule. As long as they play in the rough vicinity of at least 5000 empty seats, then it's OK. It's all about recognising construction companies for the money they pour into the game (in the case of Hanbat, back in the 1960s).

And I hope you told the curious that you were from Oman and when they follow up with "do they have English in Oman?" you replied with a long sad face "no". :smt113

That's all very well for construction companies, but what about the garden furniture industry?

I have enough trouble getting people to understand where Scotland is, I'm not going to try and explain that I'm from a country that Google translates as "arrogant."

Been back for a month and after watching some K2 (Ansan, Daejeon, E-land) it was good to get back to the N-league. Working my way up to the K3 and thinking of heading to cabbage country - Uijeongbu - for some K3 next weekend as I've got a Saturday night out with a farmer up that way anyway.

When PatiosFC win the K-League three years in a row you'll know it's on the way.

Google informs me that they already have a badge.

Pathos FC would be a more worthy winner of the N-league.

Anyone attended my favourite ever football tournament out in the weird and wonderful village of Yanggu this year?

The National League Cup has reached it's climax with the semi-finals having taken place yesterday and the glorious Tuesday afternoon champion decider has been confirmed. It'll be Daejeon Korail taking on Gyeongju KHNP for National League Cup glory after the former Incheonites beat Cheonan 2-1 and the former Daejeonites beat Gimhae 2-0.

I thought everyone had all but given up on the National League, but I love the fact that Gimhae have gone to the trouble of signing not one but two foreign players.

They've of course gone for strikers, and one (Romulo Carvalho De Jesus, signed from the amusingly named Bangu FC) has rather predictably not appeared in any matches whatsoever, but the other chap Joao Vitor Dos Santos seems to have a pretty decent goals to appearances record and has also been scoring through the National League Cup.
