I see that Busan have brought in a couple of Dutch players from Netherlands' second division (Eerste Divisie), as well as three Brazilians, including one of Italian descent. Didn't see any of the Euro fellows feature in Busan's most recent match. Any idea what's going on there?

Gotcha. No sign of either Dutch player during their last match...

Valpoort played. Seems a decent signing. He has long legs and a decent speed for his height. Was involved a lot and I've seen a nice back heel pass for Romulo, but the Brazilian shot was straight at the keeper from a good position.

Asan Mugunghwa (second place, 39 points) versus Busan Ipark (third place, 33 points) looks to be the match of this round. An Asan win could help create a nine-point gap (if Seongnam also win), putting the top two far ahead of the rest; a Busan win would reduce it to just three.

And Busan blow their chance to shrink the gap, although I suppose a point away to second-place Asan isn't to shabby.

Excellent three-way battle at the foot of the table, with the bottom three clubs separated by only a single point. Shame there isn't relegation to the K3 Advance yet.

Biggest upset in the top five divisions this weekend:

Anyang (second-bottom) 3-0 Asan (first-place)

After losing nine matches in a row and firing their manager, Ansan have now won three games on the trot and have climbed up to eighth.

Clearly what's missing in the K League is the managerial merry-go-round!
