K-League 2012 -Round 30 (Super Sunday Split) Preview

Hattrick hero for Ulsan, Kim Shin Wook just got Ulsan up at Sangju and he will need to be at his best once again to help the Ulsan boys snap a recent poor run of form if they are to beat front-runners and fellow Hyundai-sponsored team Jeonbuk this Sunday evening.

The last round of a hectic August and this will be the last time most teams (excepting the FA Cup semi-finalists) have any game action until September 15th, giving them a well deserved three week break. While perhaps not overly important at the top or the bottom, this round will be probably the most important … Continue reading

K-League 2012 – Round 29 Midweek Preview

Old Korean favorite Seol Ki Hyun popped up with goal in their vital win in Ulsan last weekend that rocketed Incheon into the final eight with only two rounds left until the split. Can he manage to get another goal and help the team with another unlikely victory against Jeonbuk on Thursday and complete the amazing turnaround that Incheon have had this season?

The last weekend round turned out to be a very topsy-turvy one with both teams at the top failing to score a win at home while both teams at the bottom did manage to get the win. Only one home team managed to win from all eight games proving how unpredictable the K-League is this … Continue reading

It has been a big week for defender Jeong In Hwan, grabbing the goal to kill off Daejeon midweek for an Incheon win as well as getting MVP for Round 26 and finding himself being selected for the Korean National Team for the first time. Can he and his team Incheon continue their strong run against Gangwon this Sunday and make a very late charge for the Top 8

This round will be the end of a tiring run for a lot of teams, with half of them having played 5 games within the space of 2 weeks. After this weekend they get a full week off to recharge the batteries before a mad last week gives us 3 games in 7 days. However, … Continue reading

K-League 2012 Round 26 – Midweek Edition

Denis Laktionov made a surprising return to the K-League after being out for 5 years for Gangwon against Seoul. Will his return be the difference in getting Gangwon the win over Jeju and getting themselves away from the battle at the bottom?

The action in the K-League keeps coming at a fast pace and is as hot as the weather has been in Korea the last fortnight. Last round showed nobody is safe with Daejeon going to league leaders Jeonbuk and beating them and with onlt five rounds to go now until the split, all teams are … Continue reading
