Tables: K-League Standings 2011 to 2015


With the season starting on Saturday, I feel like this is a good time to post this.  If you are interested in seeing how your team has fared from 2011 until 2015, here are the tables.  I really hope I got my math right this time.

Other than 2013, the tightest rate at the top.  One team averaged more than two points, one was pretty much at two points, and the third and fourth teams were pretty damn close.

Seoul's title win that year was the best by any champion.  That is why I would pick them as being the best team in the K-League for the last five years.  I think would beat any other team, including Jeonbuk in 2014, if they played one another.

I have written extensively on the race between Pohang and Ulsan and Seoul's terrible start.  Therefore, I will write no more.

In my opinion, this is the most boring year in the last five years.  Scoring was down and every team struggled to put the ball into the back of the net, hence the league average of 1.1 goals per game.

I enjoyed 2015 a lot more than 2014.  I think it helped that Seoul were lucky enough to get Adriano, who can score goals, so they were much more entertaining in the second half of the season.  Also, the fact that positions two through ten were so tightly contested and any of the teams could finish and/or fall out of the top ten made for an interesting year.
