Episode 137 – Suwon have only got one ball!
The boys meet up this week to discuss all the great, great news happening in the K-League while a certain President is in town, hence the rather interesting background noise!! The boys look ahead to the first round of the playoffs featuring Asan and Seongnam and with no K-League matches on the weekend attention was tuned to the National Team’s upcoming friendlies. First up is the visit of Colombia to Suwon World Cup Stadium before the Taegeuk Warriors welcome Serbia to Ulsan. The Colombians have promised to bring James Rodriguez to Korea which should, hopefully, put a few extra on the crowd. Korea will of course have their own ‘crowd-drawers’ as both Ki Seung Yueng and more importantly Son Heung Min have made the trip over for the games. Coach Shin Tae Yong has come under quite a bit of flak as many don’t view him as a) being good enough or b) imaginative enough to lead Korea out of the group stages in Russia. He needs a good couple of performances from his players to get that much needed breathing space from an expectant fanbase and a less than patient media.
Also on this week’s show the boys discuss the final round of the K-League Classic and Seoul’s chances of an ACL spot, announce their winners and losers of the week, look at some of the Colombians who have graced the pitches in this week’s K-Classic and more…….
