The National League has posted a teaser for the final round of the season that says "Goodbye Ulsan," so it looks like Mipo Dockyard's demise is official.

Why have they hyphenated goodbye?

Don't they have any English speaking writer fans who can help them out? ;)

In the dialect of English that is spoken in Germany, "goodbye" is written as two words. You see this on exiting any train station next to the "Auf Wiedersehen" and "Au Revoir' signs, the same on leaving the Hanover zoo, I even had a German secretary re-correct it for me after I had erroneously changed "good bye" into "goodbye" for her.

The original German-language title of the film "Goodbye Lenin" is "Good Bye Lenin". I kid you not: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Bye,_Lenin!

It's just one of those things. The English language - UNESCO World heritage. Just look at what has happened to it in certain parts of North America.

If anyone wants to submit a team name then Ansan City Hall are running a competition from now until November 30th, after which on December 1st they'll announce the new club will either be Ansan FC or Ansan United. If enough of us submit Ansan Rovers it might just happen...

Ah, they're on to us. Rather than merely emailing in the answer, you have to complete an application form in .HWP format.

I reckon we should lodge a protest with the KFA.

Are we giving up on names like Woodland Ferrets?

I quite like the sound of Ansan Wolves, although it sounds like they've already decided on Ansan United.

They should just use all of them - Ansan Greener Neptune Smart United Wolves.

United may be the least daft, but does the K League really need a third club with that name?

Why do they keep on doing these stupid name compositions? And who are the people gullible enough to think their idea actually get looked at? Unless they are like us and submit for poo-poos and he-hees. Everyone knows decisions in Korea are made by one person in charge and no one else's opinion matters.

So what you're saying is that K League club-naming competitions are a lot like Western democracies?

I love the idea of Ansan Greeners probably playing in blue or orange...

Well how can you get any greener if you start off completely green? It has to be a gradual process, taken over years with massive amounts of taxpayer aid. If it's not a challenge, it's not worth doing.

Whoa whoa whoa, voting is open to the public. You can leave a comment on this Facebook post with the number of your preferred choice.

Wolves (1), Greeners (3), and United (4) are far ahead of the other two options. You know what to do. :wink:
