but he has no problems playing in Saudi Arabia? :shock:


I think he was going to Rome which is obviously the seat of the Papacy. If that is true, and not some random rumour then he deserves to make the list. Not sure about Saudi Arabia. I guess no one would confuse him for a muslim there, though in Rome he could be taken for a catholic. Obviously the fella fell asleep in his history classes and doesn't realise that Europe had moved on from the events of the 15th and 16th centuries.

It was AS Roma, not AC Milan. He insisted he heard some voice of the God which said he should not go to AS Roma then. lol

Yeah it's funny tho because he didn't want to get an award from Peace cup(the Moonies) when he participated in as a PSV player.

I think he hates the Moonies as the competitor against Jesus Christ but the Muslims are not. lol

That gave me an idea. We should run a poll of most disliked Korean players. Any ideas?
Obviously Chupa Chups/Rat-faced Shit-weasel would make it. Who else? Mr. Hair-care? Song Chong-Gug?


Chupa Chups for sure... always hated Shin Tae-yong when he played for Seongnam, and don't like him much as their manager either.

To extend it a little bit to foreigners who have been associated with Korean football, Goldmember is up there for his spell as national team boss and so is Dick Advocaat on account of being a former hun. I should have hated Dragan Mladenovic for the same reason but he did the square root of bugger all at Ibrox and took lots and lots of their money whilst not doing it so he's okay. Ricardo Nascimento is miles ahead at the top of the list though, evil scumbag that he was...


Sandro the rapist is surely on the list?

He came in, Zoran went out, and I basically chucked being a Suwon supporter.

Wasn't sure about putting Sandro on that list, to be honest I'm still far more pissed at Cha for bringing him to the club.

There was this thread around the time of the proposed move to Roma...

Even though they pulled the plug on their Korean part of their Asian tour, it seems pretty clear that Liverpool are desperate for a Korean, there was that article before that said as much, and it seems like they're busting a gut to pick one up this summer.

I have never been convinced by Ki Sung-Yong, and whilst I don't watch enough Scottish football (almost none, though that is plenty :wink: ) to say how well or not he's doing for Celtic I just can't imagine him becoming a first team regular at Anfield. Besides, of all the positions Liverpool don't need filling (and there are plenty of positions that do need filling) central midfield isn't one of them, especially when you've just shelled out 20m on Jordan Henderson.

I watch some, but i have mates still who watch a lot, including a few journalists (if you value their opinion). They all rate him and the Israeli guy Kayal as being a class above ("Embarrassing" was the word used about the difference in class between Ki and some teams).

This only shows that he's better than all the other midfielders in the SPL. It doesn't necessarily have any bearing on whether he's actually any good, or could start for Liverpool.

Reports suggest that Celtic have turned down a bid of £6m from Rubin Kazan for Ki... I don't know if this is remotely true or is a rumour started by Celtic fans basically to fabricate a bid for a single player that is higher than the £5.5m figure paid to buy all the assets of their former Old Firm rivals Rangers (RIP).

Loads of stories doing the rounds that he's close to joining QPR, but also has additional interest from Borussia Dortmund as well. QPR seem to have announced they're signing a Korean player but haven't yet said who. Not convinced that QPR would be a good move and reckon if he did go there it would be purely because of a desire to play in England above all else. Go to Germany instead.

Maybe he can still make a lot more money playing for QPR than German champions Dortmund. QPR probably pay more anyway due to the unsustainability philosophy that runs the Premiership and he might well be worth more to the English on a marketing basis anyway.

Just for fun I had a look at the hits on google, 2.5 million hits for 볼턴 and 2 million hits for 선덜랜드, but only 780,000 for 아우크스부르크 and 720,000 for 볼프스부르크. Also 프리미어리그 is 6.4 million, while only 2.7 million for 분데스리가. Borussia Dortmund probably fancy repeating the trick with Kagawa, which is a tough thing to live up to, but for market value in Korea his agent probably knows it has to be the Premiership.

Off to Swansea?

Swans move for Bhoys ace
19/08/12

Sky Sports sources understand Swansea are in talks with Celtic over signing Ki Sung-yueng.

Ki's future at Celtic has been the subject of conjecture this summer with a number of clubs credited with an interest in the midfielder.

The 23-year-old has impressed at Parkhead since joining Celtic from FC Seoul during the January transfer window in 2010, helping them win the SPL title last season, while also catching the eye at the Olympics with South Korea.

The likes of Arsenal and Queens Park Rangers have been linked with a move for Ki, but it appears Swansea are in pole position to land the South Korean.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is in the market to bolster his midfield options after selling Joe Allen to Liverpool earlier this summer.

Celtic are thought to be willing to sell Ki for the right price and talks are thought to be at an advanced stage between both clubs.
