England 14/15

Postby OttoSilver » Sun Aug 17, 2014 7:39 pm

(I don't see a thread on this, but if there is then I apologise.)

To kick things off, I see WhoScored thinks that Gi Seong-Yong (기성용) was a pretty important figure for Swansea City on Saturday. After the first half the report on Twitter had him as the best player on the field. By the end still at 8.0

http://www.whoscored.com/Matches/829517 ... ed-Swansea

According to Wikipedia while at Seoul "He led the team to an unprecedented K League runners-up position with 4 goals and 1 assist in 21 appearances".
Was he the captain in just his second season at Seoul, because those figures don't seem like they belong to a game changer? Or maybe it was that there were no runner-ups before? Maybe before that season you had the champions and then number three? Help me out here please because I'm so confused. :(
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

Unlike Tunisia and Asia, England and Wales are in Europe and there's already a post about this. If you're not interested in the bits about Koreans playing in Germany, it's down at the bottom.

Anyway, the answer to your question, there were runners-up before 2008, but FC Seoul had never got near it (only Anyang had) and Ki was indeed instrumental in that 2008 campaign, including a late goal to beat eventual champions Suwon at the BigBird during the run-in to the play-offs. There's a match report about that match (and that season) somewhere on here.

I looked at the Europe section first but didn't see anything there. I think I went with this section because the other island countries seem the be here.

If he was instrumental then they should be more clear about his role, because it was obviously not few goals over a whole season. I suppose you cant expect Wiki editors to be professional writes, huh? Also, as FC Seoul they only had 3 or 4 chances before then to get to the runners up position. Oh well, whatever. To the other thread!

When I left England it was 1-0 with a bit over half an hour to go! Bet they're looking back fondly on the Moyes era!

I was a Wimbledon supporter before they moved to Milton Keynes (Bloody South African boss :smt093 ) and took on the stupid name of MK Dons. When the new team was created I liked them even more because they are now fan owned. (The two teams are facing each other in a lower league cup soon. I can see the Wombles taking the train north en masse.)

I started watching American Football even before I started watching actual football, and there I very quickly gravitated to Green Bay because, in a way, they are also fan owned. Usually I go for teams like that, in any sport.

Unusually FC Seoul is my team because, well, just because, I guess. I went there, got involved, then sucked in, and changing teams for no reason is just not on.

A Wimbledon and FC Seoul fan?! That's quite a unique arrangement!

Speaking of Wimbledon, they beat Morecambe. That is now two in a row. Life was all rosy until they reached Tier 4, then their overwhelming attendance became just the norm and they were not able to out money the other teams any more. But it's OK. It is a happy position for a club of that size, I guess, although one league higher for a chance to kick Milton Keynes would be nice :P

Didnt even notice that Portsmouth is well stuck in this league. Dropped straight through League 1. Relegation then wooden spoon in successive seasons much have been a hard pill to swallow for the fans on that side O.o

I'd like to present you with this bit of happy news that came from Island Side.

The Dons traveled to the *cough* Dons and returned with a come-from-behind victory to move on in the Johnstone's Pain Trophy, also knows as the Football League Trophy

Is that their first win over the plastic Dons? They've been drawn against each other quite a few times in cup competitions in recent years and I'm sure they played each other in the Capital One Cup earlier this season too.
