Pohang 4 Jeonnam 1: Dragons Forget To Get Off Bus

Pohang unleashes four goals on hapless Dragons in one-sided contest.

Well... there are predictions and then there's what I went and did. Even the suggestion of a 2-0 road win for the Dragons seems laughable now. Actually... it doesn't seem laughable, it just is laughable. Jeonnam was a team that simply didn't get off the bus playing a backup keeper and it looked that way. So, let's just get the fun over with, yeah?

Roughly 20 minutes into the game, some moron said this:
Pohang promptly started the scoring about ten minutes later when Moon Chang Jin netted one past an out of position Kim Min Sik in the 32nd minute. The keeper wasn't helped out much by five (yes five) defenders collapsing on one Steeler at the top of the box. Led to an easy pass and mediocre strike that beat the second string keeper.

Down 1-0 at the half didn't seem too bad given the fact that the Dragons supposed 43% possession felt more like 10%. The midfield lacked any sense of control or creativity and failed to create much beyond the "lob it up there and pray" strategy that actually damn near worked a few times. They were simply under siege from a seemingly revived and pissed off Pohang offense that was looking to whip up on their POSCO brethren Wilson Fisk style.

And then it got worse. Son Joon Ho scored in the 60th and 63rd minutes, obliterating any hopes the Dragons may have had at a comeback. The first of his two goals was an absolute gift of a rebound from Kim Min Sik on what was a weak shot. His second was well placed and the keeper didn't stand much of a chance. Kim Seung Dae got in on the party in the 77th minute... but... really... who cares?

Kim Young Wook scored the only goal for Jeonnam in the dying embers of the 93rd minute. Obviously this did nothing to help the game, but it felt kind of nice to prevent Pohang from getting their first clean sheet of the season for the noisy 5,731 in attendance. It's the small victories for we Dragons fans.

Jeonnam's at it again this weekend away to Busan on the 19th with a 4:00pm kick off. Follow @KLeagueUnited on Twitter for updates and streaming info.
