Alright I’m back. 3 year old daughter playing soccer = bloody cuteness. So what happened?  For one thing, I didn’t miss the really super huge, balance of the universe defining fixture that is FC Seoul v Jeonbuk. That’s tomorrow (Sunday), but Saturday’s K-League results are in -as well as Euro games for that matter.

First, Saturday K League results.

Saturday, August 27

Suwon FC
2
FT

Incheon
0

Jeju United
1
FT

Seongnam
0
 Brace for Djite (Suwon FC)                         …An Hyeonbeom goal (Jeju)

Ulsan
1
FT

Gwangju
1
Kim Tae Hwan goal (Ulsan)  Jung Jo-Gook goal (Gwanju)

With these results, Incheon finds that last place is getting even lonier as fellow relegation zoners Suwon FC is starting to pull away from the drop. Jeju gets 3 points at Seongnam’s expense, goes a long way in battling for 3rd place. Ulsan’s draw with Gwangju locks them in at 40 points, same as Jeju.

Now quickly to Sunday’s fixtures in Korea:

Sunday, August 28

FC Seoul
6:00 AM

Jeonbuk

Sangju Sangmu
6:00 AM

Suwon

Dragons
6:00 AM

Steelers
All times are in Eastern Time (add + 13 hours for Korea Time). All good fixtures but all eyes are on FC Seoul v Jeonbuk, a mouthwatering supermatch affair that pits #1 v #2, both had Asian Champions League QF 1st leg matches midweek (2nd Leg Sept 13 & 14), Seoul looking to change the course of the season / Jeonbuk looking to put the season out of reach for competitors. It might come down to Kimbo & Lee Jae-Sung technical fireworks vs Park Chu-Young/Dejan/Adriano firepower. See Tim Lee’s preview at the Tavern here.
and European league games today:
  • Liverpool v Spurs : Son unused sub
  • Leicester v Swansea : Ki subs in 2nd half, impactful but Swans come up short 2-1.
  • Crystal Palace just manages to draw level with Bournemouth, LCY enters 2nd half and dynamic (why doesn’t Pardew just start him? Pardew being Pardew again).
  • Koo starts, Ji enters for Augsburg in the 2nd half, they create chances but falters at home against Wolfsburg 0-2.
 And if you haven’t seen the Tavern’s newest post on Lee Seung-Woo and a look at his 5 years with Barcelona’s La Masia academy career along with his youth international record, see Jinseok’s article here.

  1. Dejan is actually suspended for this game, so even more pressure on Park Chuyoung to deliver. Hwang Sunhong has said that not even a draw is a good result.

    You can catch the game on YouTube tomorrow. I’ll post the link on the homepage when it comes out.
