Today's Topic: Winning Streaks

(from memegenerator.net)
Seoul does not play this weekend, so there is nothing to preview.  I have a bit of time before I go to work this morning, so I have been trying to get into playing Assasin's Creed Rogue, but I just am not feeling it.  For some reason, it feels like a rehash of Assasin's Creed 3 and 4.

Instead, I decided to do something much more riveting- look at Seoul's K-League winning streaks under Choi Yong-soo since 2012.  If you have followed the team for any length of time, then you will know the results.  They had a lot of winning streaks in 2012, a big one in 2013, a couple of small ones in 2014, and only one this year.  

I chose a winning streak as three or more games that Seoul won in a row.  This is only for the K-League.  I did not count cup games or ACL games.  Below are the results followed by a comment.

Their final record that year was 29 wins, 9 draws, and six losses.  The more I look at it, the more I realize, 2012 really was a glorious season.  It is too bad I missed about half of it traveling through Southeast Asia.  Seoul had five winning streaks that year and during those streaks, they averaged 2.14 goals a game.

If 2010 was my favorite season following Seoul, this was my favorite team.  They had a tough year, but they battled and there was a lot of excitement.  They only had one winning streak though, again averaging 2.14 goals per game that streak.  Their final record that year was 17 wins, 11 draws, and 10 losses, which was good enough for fourth in the league that year.

Things seem to become progressively worse as Choi's tenure carries on.  In 2013, there was only one winning streak, but that was seven games.  In 2014, he had two winning streaks, but they were only three games each and I think this is much worse.  At least they averaged 2.5 goals during the streak.  Seoul finished third that year with a record of 15 wins, 13 draws, and 10 losses.

This year, they have only one winning streak, which at the time I was elated about.  Now, I don't know why.  They didn't really go on to do much after that and their form at times has been dull.  As I have said before, I am finding it hard to get excited about Seoul's prospects because every time I do, they just disappoint.  

Seoul really do need to put a string of wins together.  Their next opponents are Busan and Daejeon, who are both at the foot of the table.  It really is now-or-never.  Anything other than "W's" is unacceptable at this point.
