So, who knows what?

Jungnang Public Ground apparently - any idea where that is?

I'd love to do it SJC, but the more I look at it the more unlikely I think it will be and the more impressive an achievement it has been by Cyclops to manage it. If I have another season after this one in Korea then it's possible, but there are that many other things to see. I've still got half the National and Provincial Parks to get around and whilst it was easy to match them up with a football game in the early stages, it's getting harder now that there are fewer of each still to see. My current predilection for lower level baseball grounds is slowing me down too.

Having said that I've just been pondering the possibility of a Jungnang (1pm ko) and a Yangju (5pm ko) double header this Saturday. That'll get me a bit closer to getting my membership card if I can manage it.

This is what you're looking for:

It looks not more than a five minute walk from Yangwon station on the aqua Jungang line. I don't imagine you'll have any problems timewise in making the double header!

Thanks Holyjoe. It does look do-able. 53 mins between there and Yangju subway according to the subway guide.

Sounds like you're launching offensives on too many fronts, Piggy! And you only need to ask old Adolf what the outcome of that is likely to be! ;-)

You'll like Yangju though. I managed to squeeze that in with Yongin away last season, but similarly am finding it increasingly difficult to pick off stadiums I haven't been on the trips I'm doing with the BTC.

And whilst on the subject of this (and double headers) - have just seen a possible one for Incheon away. It's not till August, but a 4pm kick off, whilst FC Seoul are 7pm. I was half thinking I would permanently boycott FC Seoul games for obvious reasons, but if I was in the end of their hated rivals Suwon who they're playing that day, perhaps I could excuse myself that. Could a taxi get from Munhak to Sangam in an hour, d'you think, fellas?

It should do - I got a few late-night taxis home from places like Gangnam and Sindorim in Seoul when I lived near Bupyeong in Incheon and I'm sure they didn't really take all that long. Was bladdered though so as you well know all concept of time goes right out the window and the journeys could well have taken four hours!

I'm sure I've done an Incheon-Seoul double header in the past but that was probably 3pm and 7~8pm kick-offs. The interactive Seoul subway map lists a journey time of 70 minutes from the Munhak to Sangam going all the way to the top of the Incheon line and transferring to the airport line. That's a new option as before you had to head into Seoul via Sindorim and would have taken a bit longer..

Should be do-able. I'd probably taxi it to somewhere like Sindorim and then subway the last 7 or 8 stops to avoid traffic around Seoul.

The traffic between oryudong and shindirim will be a nightmare. I would take the airport route and consider walking from DMC depending how long the connection is. If i was going the Shindorim route, i'd try to time it to catch the express from bupyeong to shave a good ten minutes off that sector.

Finally, if i was going to drive, i'm not sure of the recommended direct route but going with the taxi to shindorim idea. I'd turn off the main road in Oryudong, go through Yangchondong and up the left bank of the Anyangchon. That avoids the majority of traffic in gaebong, guro and the inner ring road.

Yangju's in the middle of nowhere. If you get lost, ask Paquebot in French. Does this mean you will be gracing us with your presence on Sat? You thought we were bad last year...you ain't seen nothin' yet! For some reason I thought they played south of the river.....this lot are actually my closest team now....oh no!!! Is it a 1pm start?

Hey ... Yangju isn't in the middle of nowhere.
Namyangju is in the middle of nowhere, which means Yangju is slightly north and west of the middle of nowhere.

Let me know if you're heading up to Yangju for the game, Piggy, and maybe we can meet up before kick-off.
I think Martyrs Forever is a little jealous that I didn't take him out for sushi last season like I did Rothesay_Saint the season before.
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 going to do both games, although I havent told the girlfriend yet. I dont want to eat sushi twice though so you may need to get together to plan your hospitality menus.

What goes around, comes around. So no chance of bread and wine next time you are at Gangbuk but all the stinky fish you can eat if you make it down to Gwangsan this season! :)
