for an AFC, yeah. also the biggest crowd of disappointed fans...

to miss a wide open net, even if the ball was too strong yet perfectly needled through a split instead of being greedy and shooting, and then turn to slam the ground and throw your arms in the air... he actually did well, so i wont complain but to be honest, that was NEVER going to be our strongest lineup and we never would have gotten more than a goal from that.

Only saw it now, but that was some goal from Paulinho for Guangzhou... it made it 2-0 mins before the first half ended.

that free kick was unstoppable. jeonbuk needs to get through this round, that first. but hopefully so with no more cards. because it will be a blood bath if we make it through and face gwangzhou.

A wall is of no use if the projectile is capable of quantum tunnelling... don't base everything you know about the world on classical physics.

the only thing about a wall there is that you would need at least 4, maybe 5 to make it worth anything right? so then all of those players away from the box would have made a big difference right... im sure in the return leg they might add a few more players, maybe even just three guys randomly at 10 yards instead of shoulder to shoulder

Gamba Osaka 0 Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao 0 (1-2 agg): Scolari's men hold on to reach final

In the other semi:
Al-Hilal (Saudi Arabia) 1–1, 2–3 (United Arab Emirates) Al-Ahli


So the final is Guangzhou Evergrande v Al-Ahli (China v UAE). Two years in a row now that Korean team hasn't made it to the final - a rare occurrence.

First match in on Nov 7 in Dubai, with the return leg on Nov 21 in Guangzhou.

Will be more common now with the east-west split going all the way to the final and Guangzhou being so much richer than everyone else...

Two Korean centre-backs in the final though. Kim Young-gwon and Kwon Kyung-won.
