Everybody will agree that 2011 has been a rotten year for Korean football. A frustrating Asian Cup, the widening gap between us and Japan, the bench-ridden status of our European players, and the CKR disaster. But 2012 will be better! What are some realistic hopes we can have? Here are some of mine: 1) LCY comes back! God I miss him. It's no coincidence that Bolton just happens to be one of the worst teams in the EPL with his absence. 2) KSY moves to a better club. It doesn't have to be a perennial CL team, but he needs a new challenge. He's the most important player in the NT, and there's no reason why he should be content with being a good player in the third-rate SPL. 3) The KNT dispatches Kuwait at home and replaces CKR. 4) PCY finally begins to consistently shine for Arsenal in the absence of Chamakh and Gervinho, and becomes a reliable back-up for the inevitably cooling RVP. 5) NTH gets some starting roles for Valenciennes. 6) KJC is moved to a club that will help him find his best position. 7) SHM gets back on track as his club's next main striker after HSV pulls itself out of the relegation zone.
