Midweek Round Up and Weekend Listings

Time is flying, and everyone is busy, so . . . just a quick wrap of the few midweek games, and a look at the weekend action.

*Both Koo Ja-Cheol and Park Ji-Sung are recovering from injuries, and are unlikely to participate.

**I believe that daylight savings is ending in the US this weekend. Please double check times.

Three matches jump out to me.

3. Augsburg vs Mainz 05

Once again we have another Korean vs Korean match. Hong Jeong-Ho has done well since being inserted into the Augsburg lineup, it will be interesting to see if he can hold onto it once Klaven’s suspension is over. This weekend’s match should be the last game of his suspension (I believe). Park Joo-Ho has been a mainstay for Mainz since his move from Basel in the summer.

2. Arsenal vs Liverpool

An interesting fixture regardless of whether Park Chu-Young did enough to convince Wenger that he deserves to see more action. Arsenal seemed on the verge of falling out of the top four for a couple seasons, and Liverpool has been struggling midtable. Not this season. Arsenal sits top, and Liverpool not that far behind (third, but level on points with Chelsea). Much has been said about Park’s brief showing against Chelsea in the League Cup, so I won’t re-open that discussion here, but certainly another appearance, even if it is late in the game, or even a bench spot, would be big.

1. Cardiff City vs Swansea City

The Wales derby makes it’s top flight debut. Kim Bo-Kyung has done well for the blue/red birds of Cardiff, but has been getting the early hook lately. He should, however, start against Swansea, who struggled a bit out of the gate, but has since gone on to record several good results.

    • Whoops, probably should have left this to Roy. Did it in about 20 minutes before I had to run and pack for the weekend trip for mother-in-law’s birthday.

  1. Arsenal’s lineup came out for the Liverpool match and Bendtner is in the bench while Park isn’t. ūüôĀ Why does Wenger keep adding Bendtner even though Arsenal fans ALWAYS talk trash about him?

    • As long as Arsenal keeps winning and staying on top of the league without Park, there’s no way Wenger’s going to change anything. Why would he? Everything is working for Arsenal.
      As for Bendtner, who knows. It could be that he’s been at Arsenal longer than the other subs.

      • Forwards like Giroud are fine and is the main reason why Arsenal is doing good not Bendtner. Most Arsenal fans say Bendtner is not Arsenal level and etc so I was hoping Park would replace Bendtner in the subs.

  2. I was hoping park would be a sub since wilshere is also injured. If park wants playing time all the forwards including bendtner have to be injured, at the same time…….add also some of the midfielders.

  3. Park should consider going back to the k league and getting needed playing time. After that he should hope that England qualifies for the World Cup next year. After that he should hope that korea ends up in the same group as England. After that he should hope he scores the winning goal to send England home from the group stage.

    • I think the reason why Park doesn’t want to leave Arsenal is because he gets HIGH PAY. Goal.com rates Park’s loyalty rating with one star because of this.
