It seems we spend a decent amount of time complaining about the K-League, it's organization, the standard etc. but as soon as someone else comes on and slags it off we all get pissed off with them. Kind of like it being okay to make disparaging comments about your own girlfriend's weight (not that I necassarily make a habit of this), but if some other bugger steps even a little out of line...

This said, the idea that more than 30 leagues in the world have become better than Korea's in just a single year (no matter what tangents, coefficients or space-time continuums they may be using) suggests that it was way out of line last year, this year or, let's face it truthfully, more than likely both years.

But if you're happy with your own girlfriend's weight, then who gives a shit what some fellows in Brussels or Zurich (probably) think?


Your final comment reminds me of a thread on a Ubuntu Linux forum a few years back. The thread was about how lousy Windows was. The comment went something like this. "This thread is like a dude tuning his Porche in his driveway stops and shouts from time to time, 'I hate Ford!!' "

It's IFFHS "Strongest League In The World 2010" time, and the K-League is up to the dizzy heights of 29th, though the J-League is still Asia's top league in 27th.

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)

Screw the Japanese- at this rate of progress (two places a year), we'll all finally be watching the best league in the world in our very own Korea in less than 15 years. :)

And after that...to infinity and beyond!

South Korea went from 15th in Asia to 2nd in Asia between 2008 and 2009? :lol:

Do anyone believes in it seriously? It's totally same thing with Coca-Joke FIFA ranking.

It's so funny to see other K-League fans said 'it's nothing' when they were assessed so low, and now they've got the top of the Asia, then they say 'see, they said we are the top!' then accepted it.

Their rankings are far worse than FIFA's... and that saying something. They are a joke. They are done by a bunch of nerds that like number crunching but don't actually understand the context of those numbers(results).
When I'm having a bad day all I have to do is think about the IFFHS league rankings and a smile returns to my face immediately. In fact I burst out in "spontaneous" laughter.
Korean fans are no different to most other fans I know. Happy when things go their way, quiet or pretending to be disinterested when they are not.

Given the way recent ACL tournaments have gone, Korea as the strongest league in Asia doesn't sound too far off.

Quite a few articles on Daum proudly proclaiming that IFFHS have declared Gyeongnam the 329th best club team in the world for the period 01/12/11-30/11/12, putting them just ahead of the likes of Yokohama F. Marinos, Wigan Athletic and Espanyol. Hurrah.

Ulsan are 35th, only a couple of places behind Manchester United (30) and Manchester City (32) and just above the likes of Anzhi Makhachkala, Cluj, Liverpool and Sporting Lisbon. Daegu get an entry on the list at 365th, level with J-League champions Sanfrecce Hiroshima which clearly shows Japanese football is shite.

An early Christmas present this year! Spot on as always. :-)

Boca Juniors? 4th best team in Argentina and 3rd best team in the world!
Universidad de Chile Santiago? Definitely a better team than Real Madrid!
Manchester United? Manchester City? Not a patch on the mighty Glasgow Celtic!

Gyeongnam fans will surely be unhappy that although they may be better than Hamburg, Sevilla and Wolfsburg they are still worse than Aberdeen. :oops:

Interestingly enough the MLS champions (LA Galaxy (252)) are only 12 spots above Incheon United (268). Seattle Sounders at 133 are the top MLS team. Interestingly enough two thai teams are ranked higher than the sounders (Chonburi (who did not qualify for Champions League) and Buriram United)

I just wonder what it would have taken to put Ulsan above Manchester United, only five points and four places above them. Maybe it was the home draw to Brisbane that did it or a loss in the league to someone like Daegu.

Uh, yeah, Holyjoe. Japanese football isn't shit. You see more Japanese go to Europe than Koreans. Right? Exactly.
