    for free! For Free!!! So MLS pays nothing?! Nothing? well, besides a signning bonus. What made Pohang let hime go for free?

    Well this is a shocking turn of events. Just the other day they told MLS to forget it and that they weren't looking to offload Hong...

    :confused:

    Not for free!!! Read the damn article. Do you think Hong Myung-Bo, the greatest defender Asia ever produced is for free???? It just means his club will let him go overseas.

    The article says MLS officials and LA Galaxy's Doug Hamilton (is that right?) informed Pohang that they will visit Korea to discuss about Hong early next week. Pohang disagreed within the team in this issue but now take the view that if LA Galaxy officials visit Pohang then they will think about it.

    Thanks, that's much clearer.

    So I guess this is a way's off from a "done deal." It'll be interesting to see how much MLS offers.

    I hope he go to USA to finish his career there.

  12. If he honestly thinks that...he will get ripped up in MLS! Shredded to pieces! He better bring it...or go back to Asia, because he's certainly moving into a new challenge when he comes to MLS.

    Some people can't read Korean.
    --------------------

    Do you have any idea how much Pohang will ask for? I know MLS doesn't like to spend a lot of money on transfers...

    Yeah, sure..... I mean, when you think of the GREAT leagues in the world....La Liga, EPL, Bundesliga, MLS.....

    While you're at it, why don't you say that the Revolution can beat Real Madrid?

    Anyway, Hong's a very talented defender, that's more accomplished than any MLS DF. He would be one of, if not the bets DF's in the MLS.

    Yeah right. The K-League ain't that good, but the MLS is worse.

    You'll probably have to trust me on this one.

    Hong will spank your MLS monkeys around.

    I'm fuzzy on this one, but given the WC, whose monkey spanked who? Did Korea spank our monkey or did our monkey spank theirs...egads, that's a confusing post...

    well Pohang paid around 550k US $ to Reysol to brign him back, so if they let him go less than that, that wouldnt be that good idea in business wise.

    From what I've read and seen of the K-League, it is below MLS in terms of talent.

    Not the way to endear him to the fans, if history has taught ua anything is to wait and see how a player addapts to the TEAM he is transfering to. But talk down to MLS fans will not gain him favor. I hope he does well as it behooves LA. But if he doesn't it does us no favor. Last thing we want is another Luis Hernandez, what we want is another carlos Ruiz. So as long as comes works hard shows the skills and a desire to be here he should be fine to wear the teal and gold. If he is not ready to work then its better if he goes to a team where he feels he would be happy at. Thats all, no race, no egos, just great footy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    40+yrs old player can start every game and still shines in MLS(Valderrama- he was old player in 1994 and this is 2002)
    a rookie from small island is almost leading goals in MLS...
    hmm im sure k-league is below MLS in terms of talent.

    We heard the same noise about a guy named Lothar. Also Louis Hernandez. Don't get me wrong;
    a number of imports have had success in MLS, but none has slapped monkeys here. If the rest of the world wants to think we are a zoo, that's okay.
    We were underrated in the WC, too.

    That one dood at New Jersey : 40 something
    That one dood that didnt do shiet this world cup: 3rd tier offender
    That one dood that just might go to the MLS: a defender..and the bronze ball winner. Ok he won't be slapping goals in but sure as heck he'll prevent gaols coming in.
