    two most important positions are striker and goalkeeper. always have been. always will be. have world class players in these two positions and you will never go into a match knowing that its a loss. while everyone else fights to either create chances (basically useless) or stop the opposing team from creating chances (equally useless if not more) these two fight to convert/save goals, the most meaningful stat in the sport

    My biggest wish against Qatar:
    We play horrible "possession football" Stielike style and it's 0-0 until the 90 min. Then HHC scores a goal and we win 1-0. Then KFA says "enough is enough" and adios Stielike, and we get a different manager...
    ...different manager...kfa hiring a different manager...actually scratch everything that I just wrote.

    i want to say ahn hyunbeom isnt national team quality but then again who the hell is in his position. i think people (including senilike and whomever else comes after him) just need to accept that it wont get much better than lee yong. lee yong hasnt been playing too well but his form should pick up at some point

    When's the last time SHM had a good game for US? He does his job for Tottenham but always lets us KNT fans down. always.

    I think it is pretty obvious that depending on the result against qatar, his fate will be determined.

    Why surprised? Never was a fan of Shin Tae-yong nor was I fond of the idea of him taking the KNT helm. Having watched Shin Tae-yong's 4 year tenure with Seongnam, non of his managerial problems that are currently being spoken about is anything new, and those who've also followed Seongnam during that time frame (Or long time fans) would know that very well. It was a matter of when it was going to happen and or implode.

    Apparently, some folks are still too hung up on his ACL success to even still consider him as a potential candidate. Yes, he deserves the credit for the ACL success in 2010, but you can't discount/exclude his failures with Seongnam during the latter of his tenure, and let's not even go on about Choi Yong-soo either.

    The senile one has been spared one too many times already, a loss against Qatar should do the damage.

    I miss my long lost friend Dženan Radončić. I used to chat with him via facebook while he was getting his citizenship exams.... Shin Tae yong couldnt manage him :( now hes a nobody in the 2nd division back home.

    I'm still a bit skeptical with a draw since the KFA's excuse would be "We didn't lose", but then again it will still put the KFA in the hot seat considering that we have two tough matches against Iran and Uzbekistan remaining.

    Hijacking this thread by digressing but heres a little transcript between me and him back in the days... hope you enjoy!

    Sorry if its not organized ,i wanted to deliver it as original as possible

    Me

    Hey



    11:11pmDzenan

    hi



    11:11pmMe

    damn i couldnt catch the match cuz i live in singapore,



    i heard you scored two



    nice brace

    Dzenan

    but it was on star sports



    11:12pmMe

    was it? oh well couldnt see it



    11:12pmDzenan

    and some link on internet



    11:12pmMe

    what's up with the grass at tancheon?

    is it because of the typhoon or what?



    11:13pmDzenan

    wet season



    to humid



    11:13pmMe

    hahahah Suwon's boss is crying like a baby



    11:13pmDzenan

    i know



    but we beat them again for sure

    they r bad



    11:14pmMe

    bad in the sense as in bad team? or spoil sport?



    I agree that they are not being pro



    11:14pmDzenan

    they play bad



    11:14pmMe

    ppong chukko?

    Dzenan

    we could've beat them in the league to



    11:15pmMe

    i guess its the boss's fault



    11:15pmDzenan

    just couldnt score



    11:15pmMe

    because they have good players at suwon

    Dzenan

    well yeah



    11:15pmMe

    head for head on paper, suwon's team is much better than seongnam



    11:15pmDzenan

    but they dont play good agains us



    11:15pmMe

    and that;s coming from a seongnam fan

    Dzenan

    dedf



    def



    we have 7 rookies playing



    and poor ground and no facilities for training



    but still we are there on top



    its mentallity



    11:17pmMe

    shit that's deep bro

    Dzenan

    i know



    tancheon ie worse then the pitch in my home town in 3rd division



    but what can i do about it



    i actually play well there



    haha



    11:19pmMe

    i respect that, koreans are too damn spoilt

    in their damn comfort zone



    the K-league needs more players like you



    to show them in their face, that it's all down to mentality



    11:21pmDzenan

    well some clubs have good players



    but still they play here like they dont want to play anywhere else



    i know its not easy to go abroad

    but still there are some kids who can play the ball



    11:22pmMe

    how do you rate yoo byung soo?



    is this guy the same guy as the media proclaims to be?



    you should know better, as you see him on the pitch

    Dzenan

    i dont know what are they saying



    he is ok but from what i see he already thinks he is star player



    11:23pmMe

    this is the fundamental problem



    11:24pmDzenan

    for sure



    but as i said he thinks he is the best but that is not enough to take him some place abroad

    i wish



    but that is just my oppinion



    11:26pmMe

    I totally agree



    i was just curious why the stupid media always talk about this kid



    11:26pmDzenan

    they talk coz he is the top scorer



    but as i was in incheon



    poor team

    and not many players can score



    11:27pmMe

    oh thats why they put the spot light on him



    11:27pmDzenan

    i m happy for him



    11:27pmMe

    like he's the messiah for incehon

    Dzenan

    but he needs to work more



    hahah



    maybe



    11:27pmMe

    same case for lee geun ho



    11:27pmDzenan

    that is first korean player that is doing well in that team

    Me

    your ex team mate, al beit second division



    11:27pmDzenan

    in 6



    years



    i know



    its not easy here



    to many players



    and just one pro league



    and not many can go abroad

    Me

    that is something i didnt know that deep



    the media in korea, they do a good job in putting other leagues down



    to the point that, they think it is easy to go abroad



    11:30pmDzenan

    hehe



    well korean league is probably the best in Asia



    but still not many koreans play in Japan

    or else where in Asia



    11:32pmMe

    maybe in terms of results korean league is the best in asia



    11:32pmDzenan

    till this year though



    11:32pmMe

    but in terms of infrastructure and fan base, its not

    Dzenan

    well there are four korean teams in final 8



    fans no way



    but we have world cup stadiums



    11:33pmMe

    so deos japan



    11:33pmDzenan

    but you cant compare fans in korean



    and japan

    i played there many times



    and if i dont get korean citizenshipp soon



    11:34pmMe

    u were on loan there i know



    11:34pmDzenan

    that is my next destination probably



    11:34pmMe

    OH SHIT



    GET IT NOW

    Dzenan

    wish i could



    they asked me tonight to



    i just said i had it on my mind a year or so ago



    and i still have it



    that is why i m here



    11:36pmMe

    u mean a lot of japanese interest huh?



    i think you fit better in korea to be honest, you would challenge yourself

    better



    11:36pmDzenan

    yes for sure



    but i m resisting still



    i dont know til when



    i fit here well and i m here



    11:37pmMe

    i know that, but if you want the money you go there bro

    Dzenan

    i want to make it official



    11:37pmMe

    but if you want to be something more, i bet you my life you would be a hero in the hearts of koreans



    11:37pmDzenan

    i get the money anywhere



    that is not an issue



    11:38pmMe

    a lot of koreans are betting on you to

    become a korean



    not just because of your potential as a player



    but as a person, a human being



    that is willing to serve a foreign nation



    11:38pmDzenan

    thanks for that



    i spent best years of my life here



    11:39pmMe

    because not many koreans have that

    basic aspect in their heart



    11:39pmDzenan

    i can leave of course



    but as i said



    i m staying here coz i have a feeling about the people



    coutry



    i know the language



    i know the culture



    some traditional stuff



    and so on

    and maybe if i get korean citizenship and i become a national team player



    i want to organize a game betwen korea and montenegro



    maybe they will see that i was not to far for them as they said



    just for fun



    11:42pmMe

    for the sake of yourself, pls dont give up your hope. you deserve it and

    always remember that you have spent more than 5 years in that country, so make sure thats not wasted



    11:43pmDzenan

    i m hoping



    ibenn here almost 7 years now



    we wil see



    end of this season is crucial



    for sure



    seongnam is in financial problems

    Me

    this doesnt sound good



    11:44pmDzenan

    and lots of thing going on



    11:44pmMe

    help me understand, the owner of the club is filthy rich



    i just dont undestand whyyyyyy



    damn



    the country is not a footballing country

    Dzenan

    yes but he retired



    his sons took over



    and guys dont think that footbal can bring them any money



    11:45pmMe

    they own a religion for gods sake



    11:46pmDzenan

    they cut down finances from last year in

    half



    11:46pmMe

    shit



    11:46pmDzenan

    and from next year another 30%



    so long seongnam



    its funny



    but its the truth



    i realy like it here

    Me

    its ********in sad



    11:47pmDzenan

    not many fans



    but people are nice



    but still



    11:47pmMe

    dzenan, why dont you go to a club like pohang

    they are football mad



    11:48pmDzenan

    haha



    that is the thing about me



    i can only go to a club near seoul



    i m single for god sake



    11:48pmMe

    seoul then



    incheon

    Dzenan

    cant live in pohang



    11:48pmMe

    suwon kkkkkkkk



    11:49pmDzenan

    back to incheon



    11:49pmMe

    go for it man



    your hometown

    Dzenan

    you never know



    11:49pmMe

    suwon = $$



    11:49pmDzenan

    i know



    they want me



    11:49pmMe

    THEN GO



    11:49pmDzenanMe

    good



    just whatever u do



    dont go to japan



    you've been there



    done that



    actually suwon lacks a good manager



    11:50pmDzenan

    so many good clubs there though

    Me

    the only good ones are kashima, gamba osaka, urawa



    thats it the rest is shit



    11:51pmDzenan

    they all have lots of money



    and to many fans



    all stadiums are packed



    but what do you think



    would i go to any other cub but the ones you mentioned

    hehh



    11:52pmMe

    hmmm



    if i were you... i would kkkkk



    but if i was being selfish



    i wouldnt want you to see you play there



    but really, the fans appreaciate the fact that you have been in K-League for so long



    EVEN though they all know japan = $$

    come on, think about it.. cabore, tavarez from pohang, and so many other foreign imports all left korea



    after they did well in korea



    just because of $$$$$



    11:54pmDzenan

    of course

    Me

    at least you are showing your commitment and loyalty



    11:55pmDzenan

    but people are diferent



    i m waiting for my reward



    korean citizenship



    and national team jersey



    then i can live in peace



    that is just my goal for some time



    it was and still is

    have no idea what can happen next year



    but i m hoping



    that i will not have to leave this all behind me



    i have so acheived so much here



    this country gave me everything i have



    i mean materialistic



    and i feel i have an obligation to give something back

    they want it



    but its still not an easy quest here



    coz they never had a foreigner playing fo national team



    comparing to japan



    11:58pmMe

    thats why you can be the break through



    11:58pmDzenan

    wich they always do

    Me

    the first one is always the most challenging



    11:58pmDzenan

    and i want to be



    but if i dont do it



    there will not be another player for very long time

    Dzenan

    this is my chance



    and korea chance



    lets see what's gonna happen



    12:01amMe

    dzenan i have nothing to say



    the only adivse i can give you now is



    keep doing what you do best



    12:02amDzenan

    that is only i can do

    we will see what is future brings



    12:03amMe

    dzenan, let me know if you have a chance to come visit to singapore

    you need to organize that sh*t.

    good stuff though. I don't think he would have been any help for our NT though to be honest. Always liked him for adapting to the culture in Korea.

    LOL we're seriously derailing the thread but that's how we miss the good ol days where football was all about scoring goals... looking at our NT sigh....
