Koreans Abroad Midweek Recap and Weekend Preview

Lots of Sunday action which is good for people like me (coaching kids then) but may be worse for you.  Then again, always inconvenient for most likely players all smooshed in at same time slot despite being on Sunday.

Park Joo Ho -- Ineligible for CL and don't think they'll use him this weekend for rotation purposes yet.

Kim Jin Su -- As I mentioned in recap, don't think a four goal half is enough to change KJS situation.

Lee Chung Yong -- Crystal Palace won, but haven't looked to great for it.  Will Pardew ever go back or will leave LCY as a different option off the bench?  With Sako and Wickham healthier, it remains to be seen even what the depth chart might look like, but I think for now that LCY will remain on the bench but still be higher up on the list than last season.

Ki Sung Yueng -- Ki has been above average but not great so at what point does Guidolin change things?  It seems unlikely that they go back to 5-3-1-1 that was so ugly last week, but retaining the Ki/Cork/Fer seemed like the best option right now.  I think that Ki starts again and hopefully Ki's form continues its slow but upward trend.

Ji Dong Won -- With Caiuby out for rest of 2016, Ji seems far more likely to start, but will it be on the left as a similar replacement or on the right for a struggling Bobadilla, letting new signing Schmid get his first start?  It seems Schuster has more confidence in Ji than Schmid, so I think Ji will start but not certain but almost certainly Ji will play at least off the bench.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Koo continues to motor along even if he's not quite reached the levels of last season yet.  But Koo has been one of productive players so he should start.

Son Heung Min -- Sigh... what would have happened if his shot hadn't gotten cleared off the line both for Son's confidence or for Tottenham.  Son was ok, and certainly less error prone than say Lamela who gifted the ball for the first goal in the loss, but the lack of cutting edge from Son means that he got the hook at the half.  It was less about Son, than changing back into a more proper shape but certainly Son is way below Eriksen/Lamela/Alli in Pochettino's thoughts.  With cup match next week, I think Son gets "saved" for Gillingam as Pochettino prioritizes league, but Son should be on the bench and maybe can provide some spark as a sub.
