Marching resolutely towards the goal of being the best league in the world, the K League is now up to 15th by the IFFHS' infallible calculations:

2003: 39 (1st in Asia)
2004: 43 (1st)
2005: 53 (4th)
2006: 57 (2nd)
2007: 54 (7th)
2008: 85 (15th)
2009: 31 (2nd)
2010: 29 (2nd)
2011: 18 (1st)
2012: 15 (1st)

Good stuff. Ten years ago best in Asia would've put you on the edge of the top forty. Now it's firmly in the top twenty. Lord only knows how they calculate it, but it sounds reasonable to me.

I think we're to get the definitive list of best clubs in the world for 2012 tomorrow, where we can hopefully confirm that Aberdeen are indeed still a better side than Gyeongnam, however noticed they've got a list of the best national coaches in the world for 2012 and Sir Myung-bo of Hong is joint fifteenth with Ottmar Hitzfeld and Oleg Blokhin. Not bad.

And here is the definitive Club World Ranking for 2012, Ulsan are joint 31st best team in the world along with Cluj and Lazio and comfortably the best in Asia. Second-best in Asia are Pohang Steelers who are ranked 62nd with Ukranian side Dnipro and Argentine team CA Lanus. Jeonbuk are 108th, FC Seoul 154th, Seongnam 178th (don't tell Colombian's mate), Suwon 184th, Jeju 206th, Incheon 267th, Gyeongnam 333rd (still worse than Aberdeen), Daegu 356th and Chunnam & Busan both joint 425th.

By my reckoning that's eleven of the sixteen 2012 K-League sides in the top 425 teams in the world, or 69% of the league. With just fourteen sides in the top flight for 2013 that means 78.5% of the league are in the world's top 425 clubs, which pisses all over the 75% figure for the Premiership and La Liga.

Should IFFHS now update their best league in the world list to put the K-League at number one?

Hugely disappointed they haven't found a way to avoid Barcelona being top. :albino:

The rest of the list is up to the usual, complete bollocks, standard though. :smt117

Whoa.

Well... technically... it's right. I mean he did score the 7th most goals in the world...in a top division. Still... you know.

HOWEVER, he could be "4th" had he not missed two penalties this season. I remember seeing him miss two penalties. Molina missed one, too.

That list of scorers provides further evidence that IFFHS stats can be shown to prove that the K-League is the best league in the world. They've got Damjanovic 7th and Lee Dong-guk 21st, only two players from Spanish and English sides are in that top 21, only one from German and Italian clubs. If the famous Andy Pando (19th) joins a K-League side as rumoured in the transfer thread then three of the world's top 21 goalscorers would be plying their trade in Korea. Yet more clear evidence of how bloody great the K-League is.

DISASTER! Having made steady progress each year from 2008 towards becoming recognised as the best league in the world by this thoroughly reputable honest guv international football statistical analysis organisation, the K-League has dropped eight places in the world ranking for 2013. It's not all bad though, the J-League has dropped to third in Asia behind Saudi Arabia and the K-League is still better than the Scottish Premiership.

2003: 39 (1st in Asia)
2004: 43 (1st)
2005: 53 (4th)
2006: 57 (2nd)
2007: 54 (7th)
2008: 85 (15th)
2009: 31 (2nd)
2010: 29 (2nd)
2011: 18 (1st)
2012: 15 (1st)
2013: 23 (1st)
