Gangwon hosted Busan last night and won with a goal in the 89th minute. So its Gangwon away to Bucheon this Saturday at 2. Be there or definitely be square!

A draw would be enough for your team. More time to rest than Gangwon.

Busan manager Choi Young-jun has resigned.

In hindsight, it was an odd appointment. Busan was his first managerial gig in Korea; prior, he managed the Brunei U-20 national team, way back in 2001-2003. He then spent several years coaching at K League sides, but had only been employed for one year in the half-decade prior to taking the reigns at Busan.

In his first season at Busan, the club was relegated. Yet, he was kept on. He didn't do too badly in his second season, but perhaps he felt restricted by the ownership situation at Busan and wanted to go out on a relative high with an eye on future employment.

I had expected him to stay, but the departure is supposedly his choice rather than the club's.

Will be interesting to see if Busan are as busy in the upcoming transfer window as they were last year, and well as who they end up appointing as their next manager.

If Ulsan Mipo are up for grabs then they could do worse than to sneak in and buy the whole lot before they become Ansan FC. They'd be getting a half decent collection of players who then probably wouldn't even have to move house.

Gangwon defeated Bucheon 2-1 with a late goal and proceed to the pro-rel playoffs against seven-time K League champions Seongnam.

Here's (non-geoblocked) highlights of the first round of the Challenge playoffs between Gangwon and Busan.

Bucheon vs Gangwon HG. As you can see Gangwon played with 5 defenders
The Syrian player Serginho was in the heart of the defense. Not for the first time this season. My left back of the year with the opener. He had more freedom to go forward in this formation with 3 central defenders. The red card of Wagner a little bit harsh maybe? Maranhao really enjoyed the goal.

Heard from the club that we are releasing Christian. He asked for more money to stay. We couldn't pay what he wanted. He will definately have a few clubs sniffing around for his services. Scores goals for fun. 19 for us last season.

Seongnam are hanging on in there... just. A 0-0 draw in tonight's first leg away to Gangwon means a home win on Sunday will be enough to retain their K1 status. Interesting to note that their caretaker manager Gu Sang-bum, who only took over in September when Kim Hak-bum left, himself resigned a couple of days ago and first team coach Byun Sung-hwan was in charge for the first leg. He'll take charge of the second leg as well.

Byun Sung-hwan out.

It's not just Daegu who are fortunate that Ansan were denied promotion this season; Seongnam could have faced Daegu in the pro/rel playoff rather than fourth-place Gangwon if Ansan were allowed up.

Lucky buggers if that's what keeps the Magpies up.

I could look this up but I'm too lazy. What's the tie-breaker if scores are equal on aggregate? Higher team stays up? Away goals? Straight to penalties? A round of guess the smell?

The football season is almost over in Korea. We still have to games left in the FA Cup final. Seongnam are down after a 1-1 draw. So the away goal rule was.

Sooooooo, is Songnam going down? Away goal wins?
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.
