everything at gangwon was just so entertaining until this... there has to be a supply and demand curve and i dont think 30,000 is going cut a decent number of people in the seats. esp when they have to take a bus to and from, or drive from another city... i might rock up in a korean school boy uniform and try to get a discount...

Renos at Ulsan's stadium include new standing terraces.

Have there been any at other grounds in the K-League since Pohang ripped theirs out?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but most of the World Cup stadiums were built before the world went mad for corporate hospitality. What most of them probably need are air-conditioned boxes where you can wear a suit and tie and somewhere you can feed a large number of people an overpriced meal. Corporate hospitality might mean something different in Korea, but I'm sure they could accommodate that as well.

Seoul tried that "FC Seoul Pub" in the boxes in the corners this season. No idea if it was successful or not as I never went because I thought 30,000 was a bit steep (little did I know that just one year on for that money it would be possible to sit in the rain in the middle of nowhere watching Gangwon) but there always seemed to be people in there. But Sangam is probably the only stadium with a load of boxes.

Seongnam's temporary stand at Tancheon has a standing area in the middle and a small bit of the South stand at Incheon is terraced. Ulsan's the first I've seen of a World Cup Stadium ripping some seats out though.

If it's Korean macrobrew lager you won't have a head when you're done.

Very fast. That means no transfers for them? I doubt it

Apparently I downloaded last season's fixture list on the 16th of January. Presumably this year's fixtures will be out soon.

Careful not to use the word "super" twice in one sentence, or you may receive a trademark infringement threat from Major League Soccer. :wink:

Poor old RoqueJunior. I was going to complain about his incorrect spelling of the word "matchee".

Hahaha...what a laugh.
They had crowds last year of close to nothing with much cheaper tickets. Once the novelty effect of being in the top division and playing in a new stadium wears off (1 game I predict) there is no way anyone but the most hardcore supporter (which probably number no more than 100) will pay that very often.

What's everyone's predictions for how the final table will look then? My guess (Pre round 1)

1. Jeju
2. Ulsan
3. Seoul
4. Gangwon
5. Pohang
6. Jeonbuk
7. Jeonnam
8. Sangju
9. Incheon
10. Suwon
11. Gwangju
12. Daegu


Jeju have been steadily improving for a couple of seasons now and this is probably the best chance they'll get to take the title back to the island; Ulsan looked strong the back half of last year and should be competitive again, especially if they exit the ACL; Seoul look well off the pace so far and 3rd is being generous, expecting them to spend a lot in the summer; Gangwon seem to have had a ton of money pumped into them to make them a competitive team and given their signings look pretty good I suspect it might pay off; Pohang are OK but not overly inspiring; Jeonbuk are a mess and will really miss Kwon Sun-tae in goal; Jeonnam have good young players but probably not quite there yet; Sangju lost the manager who made them a genuine threat last season but still retained some good players and added several more talented army signings so shouldn't have to worry too much about a relegation battle; Incheon looked much better at the back end of last season and their summer signings seem to be a step in the right direction; Suwon were utter crap last year and I've seen nothing to suggest that will change; Gwangju lost too many key players and could really struggle this time; and Daegu very similar, not sure Thai League Brazilians are going to cut it here.
