Suwon Bleuwings Still Looking For A Proper Striker

Kim Gun-hee, Cho Dong-geon, Johnathan and Kim Jong-min. A bunch of random names thrown together? No. These footballers have something in common: they are all strikers which Suwon Samsung's head coach Seo Jung-won has played as #9 in this K League Classic 2016 season. None of these strikers has been impressive so far when it comes to netting. I'm following this side quite a lot this season, and the lack of finishing in the final third is something between tragic and comical.

After 26 rounds, Suwon Samsung have scored 33 goals, only 6 of them are from their attackers. Veteran defender Lee Jung-soo netted twice, which is more than Johnathan and Kim Gun-hee did. If the Brazilian striker has played very little, the same can't be said about the 21 year old striker, Gun-hee. He has played 895 minutes in this K League Classic season and managed to score just one goal. A good goal ratio for a midfielder, not for a # 9.

Speaking of midfielders... 22 goals have come out from this specific field. It's remarkable that Santos has been able to find the net 9 times. Korea's next big thing, Kwon Chang-hoon, has 5 five goals in his box score, while Mr Assist, Yeom Ki-hoon has scored 4. Kwon missed a few games due to injuries and international duties with the Olympic team in Brazil. Suwon Samsung needs his talent to avoid relegation since the attackers don't seem to carry the team on their back at all. Personally, the way I see football, not having a proper goal scorer is a good way to relegate or to fail your preseason goals. Of course, all Suwon Samsung's fans hope I will be wrong this time around.
