Sorry – No Previews for Rounds 32 and 33

This weekend round 32 and midweek round 33, I am unable to do the previews. Just too busy at the moment so sorry about that. From Round 34 (next weekend) the previews will appear once again.

Two Horses and Turning Points

Clean Air for the Top Two The riders are now well into the 2012 stage of the K-League, and after thirteen rounds there could now be two teams attempting to ride away from the peloton and off into the sunset. Suwon and FC Seoul both enjoyed 2-1 successes at the weekend and have now opened up a … Continue reading

Three From the Top

There have been plenty of great and not so great performers so far in the K-League and I think it’s time to put the spotlight on some of them now…well, not that bad ones, that would just be mean now wouldn’t it. And not all of them either, just a few that have come from … Continue reading

Phwoar One, Suwon are Rolling

David Spendley looks back at Suwon’s impressive second half come back as the Bluewings came from behind to earn a 4-1 victory at home to Gwangju FC.

An Everton inspired forty-five minutes saw the Bluewings punch back against a resilient … Continue reading

The Outside View: Podside Story

Jeonbuk Starting to Click into Gear

Jeonbuk have made a patchy start to their K-League defence, but found themselves in the top half none the less ahead of the visit of a Gwangju FC side who had started the season so impressively but now seem to be in something of a tailspin. Lex Nande reports: Heading into Friday’s game, both teams were … Continue reading

Managers on the Edge, and Over it

Rudderless Incheon United Sail On There are several firsts that let you know that the season is well and truly underway. The first goal came fourteen minutes in from the predictable boots of Jeonbuk’s Lee Dong-Guk. Just over twenty-four hours Incheon’s Gu Bong-San received his second yellow card and the season’s first red away at Jeju United. Three weeks in and Lee … Continue reading

Tragedy Strikes Again Amongst the Cherry Blossoms

The tragic death of Lee Kyung-Hwan Saturday brought with it the shocking news that former Daejeon and Suwon midfielder Lee Kyung-Hwan had taken his life, falling from the fifteenth floor of an apartment building in central Incheon, where he had lived with his mother. Lee became the third suicide victim in the fallout of last year’s match-fixing scandal … Continue reading

K-League Preview Round 8

On Vacation

Sorry guys….on vacation. Previews will resume from next week (Round 9).

Stevo: The Inside View

With his lengthy suspension over Suwon fans have been delighted with the return of powerful Macedonian marksman Stevo Ristic. The fixed grin he has been playing with indicates he’s just as pleased to be back, which makes sense, his team have had a blistering start to the season.  With Suwon sitting nicely at the top … Continue reading
