Kimbo will likely start against Charlton after coming as a sub midweek.

A mini-Korean derby. Ji Dong-Won, who has done all but score for Augsburg, takes on red hot Son Heung-Min. The latter could be rested for Champions League midweek against Atletico de Madrid, however.

Kim Jin-Su has a decent shout at starting against Freiburg.

Koo Ja-Cheol and Park Joo-Ho are always in the mix for Mainz, but their manager has been fired this week so your guess is as good as mine.

Lee Chung-Yong still injured so his Premier League debut continues to be delayed, while Yun Suk-Young could start as well, depending on what now official boss Ramsey makes of him as he is tasked with getting the R’s to safety this season.

And Ki Sung-Yueng hosts Manchester United at the Liberty Stadium, can he score against Van Gaal’s side like he did to open the season? (Please don’t. United supporter here.)


Lee Myeong-Joo’s Al-Ain lost 1-0 – the South Korean midfielder played the full 90. A stark constrast to his club’s 7 goal performance last week…

Kwak Tae-Hwi’s Al-Hilal are in a bit of a rut as they have fired their manager, and the new boss left Kwak out of the squad on Tuesday… and they lost. Al-Hilal have a tough game against Al-Ahli Saturday at 12:40pm EST… 2:40am KST on Sunday morning.

Nam Tae-Hee’s Lekhwiya won 1-0 on Thursday… Nam came on as a late sub. Lekhwiya now first in the Qatari leagye,

Han Kook-Young and Cho Young-Cheol play Friday morning EST (8.45am), evening KST (10.45pm) against Al Khor. Qatar SC are 4th in the league.

No Asian Champions League for Lee Keun-Ho this year as his El Jaish side lost the playoff. He plays Saturday morning at 8.45am/10.45pm against the Qatari Al-Ahli.

There will be ACL for former KNT defender Lee Jung-Soo however – Al-Sadd won their playoff in penalties.

Whoa, it’s like 1am here. Jalgayo from the TSC – and happy (belated) Lunar New Year to all those back in Korea! Hangeul keyboard isn’t working so in romanization: Sae-hae bok ma-ni bat-eu-sae-yo!
