Transfer Talk - Busan IPark

Well, it's been awhile (sorry 'bout that). Work has just completely and totally swallowed my life. It's been unreal at times, but I'll pop in quickly to give an update on Busan's potential summer transfer market (and then later a longer rant on Choi Young-joon and the midseason report later on). But first, transfers!




Which player(s) signed in the Winter Transfer Window has performed best for your team this season?

Popp has chipped in a bit, and he leads the team in "scoring points" with 4 goals and 2 assists. Given the dramatic decline of Lee Chang-geun, the signing of Gu Sang-min from Ulsan Hyundai Mipo has been a decent one. In a slightly unfortunate way, the best signing has probably been the return of Lee Won-young (at least in terms of performance). The, until recently, captain still lacks pace, but he's dominant in the air, and a better tackler than most other defenders on the team. Unfortunately for Busan, most of the transfers that came in have been underwhelming in their performances for the club.

Which position (if any) do you think your team needs to target most this transfer window?

Difficult to say. Like I said in the summer transfer preview, the team needs quality from top to bottom. The defense remains porous, the midfield still can't control a game, and the forwards are isolated and streaky. I suppose if I had to go with one area, it'd be attack. The team has only scored 15 goals to date, only Seoul E-Land (14) and Goyang (10) have scored less. Stojanovic and Ko Kyung-min have not been able to replicate their scoring touch from last season, and Popp is....... 

Is there a player within K-League you'd like to see your team sign? An international player?

Geez, almost any player could probably at least compete with the current squad. To be honest this question feels quite ridiculous for Busan, so I'm actually not going to answer it.

Is there someone on the team you'd like to see loaned out or sold?

Daigo should probably head back to Japan. Hoped he would bring some technique and passing to the midfield, but he doesn't seem to have any interest and has been appearing for the R League side. Painful as it is to say, Lee Chang-geun, after being desperately held onto in the summer, should probably seek a move as well in order to try and get his career back on track.

Realistically, who would be a great signing for the league? 
Anyone that can up the quality. Someone like Edu or Chong Te-se, that level of player.
