is joined for the first time in a long time
to discuss a range of topics as Korean football
refuses to slow down despite K League 1 and the FA Cup being done
and dusted. The three pick up in Austria where the Korean National
team lost and won friendly matches against Mexican and Qatar, but
the largest talking point came off the field with several players
and staff testing positive for COVID 19. The hosts discuss whether
or not these matches should have taken place, and which players
should (or shouldn't) have been called in.
They then switch focus to the resumption of AFC Champions League
where Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, FC Seoul, Suwon Samsung Bluewings,
and Ulsan Hyundai all played over the weekend. They begin with a
discussion on ACL's format and some potential changes, and then
each give one takeaway from the four matches.
The third segment shifts focus to the final match day of the K
League 2 season and the VAR controversy that plagued Seoul E-Land
vs Jeonnam Dragons. They discuss Julian Kristoffersen's multiple
disallowed goals as well as that handball
non-call. They then briefly discuss Gyeongnam FC's 1-0 victory over
Daejeon Hana Citizen which ensured the exact same match up just a
few days later.
The final segment sees the hosts briefly preview Gyeongnam vs
Daejeon's playoff match before they give way to Paul's interview
with Australian midfielder Connor
. The two discuss Daejeon's season thus far,
expectations, and the looming playoff matches.
All that and more in this edition of the K League United
