    Do you know what kind of squad did Seongnam field? 3-1 loss against city clerks?!?!

    Seongnam put out pretty much a reserve side:
    Park Sang-cheol, Kim Sung-il (Shin Dong-kun),l Seo Hyuk-su, Park Woo-hyun, Jeon Kwang-jin, Oh Sung-bum (Kim Do-yong), Kim Cheol-ho, Cha Jong-yoon (Kim Do-hoon), Park Yeong-chul, Jang Hak-young, Marcelo (Lee Ki-hyung)

    It's quite surprising as if they won the FA Cup then they'd gain entry to the 2005 Asian Champions League... I guess they figured their reserves would take care of the semi-pro side and their main squad would come in for the tougher games against K-League opposition.

    As for Suwon City Hall, they've got quite a few ex-pros in their squad. Suwon City Hall sponsor the team, so not too many penpushers in it. Ditto Korea National Railroad aren't a bunch of train drivers ;)

    With so many pro teams already out, I can't believe the teams were serious about the Cup. I don't follow K-league much so I really don't know if this Cup is of no importance to K1 teams or not. Perhaps, combination of being too confident and not putting too much effort in the tournament?

    I think there's a fair amount of money to be won if you lift the FA Cup, as well as getting into the Asian Champions League. Cheonbuk won the Cup last year and they reached the ACL semi-final, and reaching the ACL final this season was worth quite a bit to Seongnam. I would have thought it would have been worth their interests to put a bit more focus on the tournament.

    Mind you the schedule isn't so great - they're playing pretty much every two days in the morning and early afternoon, so it probably wouldn't be possible to play your best eleven in every game really.

    I hope no micky mouse amateur team wins it. They may get embarassed in ACL.

    However, if an amateur team wins it, I hope it is Hallelujah. I can see Muslim announcers saying Hallelujah thousand times while broadcasting their matches. "Hallelujah have the ball in their middle-field. Hallelujah is subbing a player number 9 with 11. It's Hallelujah's corner kick. Shooooot ..... Hallelujah!" :D

    (No offense to our Muslim & Christian members on the board.)

    Goyang Kookmin Bank 0-2 Chunnam Dragons
    Aju University 0-3 Cheonbuk Hyundai Motors
    Jaenung Education 1-3 Gimpo Hallelujah
    Gwangju Sangmu 3-2 FC Seoul

    I'll get the excuses in for Suwon by saying but for Seo Jung-won on the bench they fielded entirely a reserve team for the second game in a row... ;)

    Quarter-final draw (for Tuesday 21st December)

    Top Half
    Cheonbuk Motors v Busan I'cons
    Gimpo Hallelujah v Ulsan Hyundai Horang-i

    Bottom Half

    Quarter Final results
    Daejeon Citizen 1-0 Chunnam Dragons (aet)
    Ulsan Hyundai Horang-i 5-0 Gimpo Hallelujah
    Busan I'cons 2-2 Cheonbuk Hyundai Motors (Busan won 6-5 on penalties)
    Bucheon SK 2-0 Gwangju Sangmu Phoenix

    Semi Final results
    Busan I'cons 5-1 Ulsan Hyundai Horang-i
    Bucheon SK 0-0 Daejeon Citizen (Bucheon won 4-2 on penalties)


    That means the Christmas Day final will be between Busan and Bucheon, with one of those two unfashionable sides going on to represent Korea in the 2005 Asian Champions League along with Suwon. Just for the record, Busan finished 7th overall in the K-League, with Bucheon dead last (as usual ;) )

    Jinx again? The results of K-League and FA Cup are usually in inverse proportion to each other. Congrats to Busan and Bucheon.

    Well done Busan I'cons, who will be competing in the 2005 Asian Champions League tournament after winning the FA Cup.

    The 2005 Super Cup will also be between Suwon and Busan.
