What a surprise. Ulsan's 4-6-0 formation fails to produce a goal for the third game in a row. Early season optimism has faded already. Its going to be another 'just good enough' season for Ulsan I'm afraid.

Why does anyone play 4-6-0? It's Manchester United that started it after they copied Roma who didnt really have any other choice, but you need very mobile players with great control and movement. Otherwise it's just parking the bus. I bet there are non-league teams that play 4-6-0 these days just because it's fashionable and I bet they're awful.

In happier news, Suwon invited some sort of 'got milk' wifey along to watch them draw yet another match. They drew 18/38 in 2016, already this season it's 4/5 in the Classic and 2/3 in the Champions League for good measure.

Jeonbuk are going all retro for this weekend's home match against Pohang - they've released a 1999 Jeonbuk Dinos inspired kit that they'll be wearing for the match:

Interesting read, nice to see an English-language feature on Korean football that isn't about the national team or Son's goalscoring exploits in England. That said, having got all the way through a piece on unusual stadia in Korea it was rather unnecessary to add in the "poor football on the pitch" line right at the end.

Will we say they were poor today at the Ski Jump Arena if they actually let Suwon Samsung not draw a match? Or do we just point the finger of poorness at Diego Mauricio whose poor last minute penalty was saved by Shin Hwa-yong which meant Suwon ended up winning by mistake.

Think some sort of steward's enquiry is needed after events at Gwangyang though with Jeonnam putting five past Ulsan without reply.

I hope the idiot Jeonbuk fans will be having a retro protest about the non-traditional yellow trim

Still was not said here, but Bluewings defender Lee Jung-Soo had a conflict with Suwon fans after the 0-0 draw against Gwangju. Few days later he decided to retire from the game. ACL winner with Al Sadd. Scored for South Korea at World Cup 2010. Great player. He is 37.
