Episode 131: The Days Of Future Past



This week the boys host the podcast from the newly renovated 48 Shades Mansion as they discuss all the main news and issues hitting the K-League. This week sees the launch of the inaugural K_Classics section where we review a key event/moment/star from the past that has shaped the league. For the first trip down memory lane the boys get all teary-eyed as they look back to the 2005 FA Cup and that unbelievable run from the sadly departed Ulsan Mipo Dolphins. The National League team made it all the way to the final only to fall to Jeonbuk Hyundai. As well as that fantastic run there was also the rather impressive goal-scoring feats of one Milton Rodriguez who scored six goals en route to the final…..unfortunately he pulled a Salvatore Schillaci and was never to be heard of again!!!

Also on this week’s show the boys review the recent matches in both the Classic and Challenge, discuss the potential return of Hiddink, reveal their losers and winners of the week, look ahead to the weekend’s clashes and more……


Episode 110 – Someone call a Seongnambulance

“You hide behind your Jekyll and Hyde”


This week the guys discuss the goings on at FC Seoul as yet again the Champions put in a rather schizophrenic performance as they failed to show up for the first 45 minutes of their match against title rivals Jeonbuk. They were 1-0 down at half-time before Hwang gave them the hair-dryer treatment in the dressing room. This is not the first time that it has taken them a full half to ‘warm-up’ and it must now cast doubts over Hwang’s ability to lead them to a title defence. The boys also discuss just what it takes for Kim Shin Wook to get sent off as he somehow amazingly escaped a straight red card for aiming a petulant kick at Ju Se Jong midway through the first half.

Wasn’t me ref, honest!

Also on this week’s show the guys discuss Seongnam’s shocking start to the season as the boys in black failed to win yet again and still prop up the Challenge table, they preview the upcoming ACL matches, discuss Dejan’s ‘best XI’, preview the upcoming K-League games this weekend and get ready for the birthday party to end all birthday parties!!

This week saw the return of competitive football in the shape of the Asian Champions League. It also witnessed the much awaited return of FC Seoul legend Dejan in the red and black although it would be another player in Seoul’s colours who would steal the limelight as Adriano would rack up four goals against a rather beleaguered Buriram defence in a 6-0 routing.  There was also a good result for Jeonbuk who ran out 2-1 victors over Fc Tokyo with a number of their new signings making their debuts, some more successful than others. Pohang returned from China with a share of the points in a closed doors game against the mighty Evergrande in what must be regarded as a point won. The final match was Suwon v Gamba which Mark made the trip down to watch. It finished 0-0 with both teams huffing and puffing before ultimately hitting the woodwork and leaving a disappointed and frozen Mark to make the journey home without a goal to show for his efforts.

Tune into Episode 52 for a review of all four East Asian groups as well as the result of the nail-biting K-League motto competition. We also hear who the Managers and Captains of each Classic team think will win the league *spoiler alert – it’s not Gwangju*. And to round things off the boys will discuss their favourite subject ….. Ball Beer Girls.
