The Gift of GIFs: Gwangju FC vs. FC Seoul

(I feel like this could bring on an epileptic seizure- from blog.bigstockphoto.com)

If you are a citizen and going to vote today and your district in Korea is anything like a Democratic one in a U.S. state such as Florida or Ohio, you will be waiting for a long time in line.  Therefore, to help you pass the time, you can watch these GIFs.  They are primarily of Seoul and Gwangju however.


In my preview for the Gwangju-Seoul game, I briefly mentioned Adriano's part in Seoul's first goal.  Here is a GIF of that.  Once again, I really appreciate how he kills the ball with his first touch, waits for the play to develop and finds Lee Seok-hyun with the perfect pass.

Everyone knows that Adriano can score, but I do not think the vision he shows has been appreciated as much as it should.  In the game against Sangju, he sets Osmar up nicely not just once, but twice.  If not for good goalkeeping, Osmar would have had a second goal.  Likewise, his pass to Shin Jin-ho against Incheon was class as well.   Adriano did get an assist in the Sangju game however and the setup for it was great.  First, there is Park Chu-young's ball into space to free up Adriano and after what looks like a poor touch, Adriano sets up Lee Seok-hyun to score.  Besides Adriano's vision however, I think Lee Seok-hyun's timing of his runs to score goals is great and it adds an element to Seoul's attack that was lacking last year.

Here are three more random GIFs.  The first is of Adriano scoring against Jeonnam, but being flagged for being offside.  I thought he was on, but watching it over and over I guess not.  Still, Takahagi had a nice back heel. The next is of Dejan showing off his dribbling skills.  Finally, the last one is off Takahagi's assist in the Incheon game.

Jeonnam had some good moments as well, such as the interplay between Jugovic and Orsic.  Here is how to run a counter attack.  In my Gwangju preview, I briefly analyzed the disorder in Seoul's defense, but credit should be given to Jeonnam, it really was a good goal.  That goal, along with the one Incheon scored, show that Seoul's defenders, particularly Kim Won-sik and Park Yong-woo, are susceptible to players who can time their runs and get behind them quickly.

In my preview, I also highlighted Jong Jo-gook's play.  Here is GIF of him dribbling, his first goal against Pohang, his ability to get into good shooting positions, his pressing, and the route one goal he scored against Jeju.  He has started quite well this season and if he plays against Seoul, hopefully he has a quiet game.

I am not really sure what the Gwangju defense's weaknesses is- their keeper, the inability of the midfield and defense to stop shots near the top or outside of the box (one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and nine), balls over the top seem to cause trouble (one, two, and three), or when the push up high on the break and lose the ball (here and here).
