    1. They're one of the more interesting teams to me this season. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they finished 3rd or got relegated. A LOT of talent on that team and the usual big clubs got a bit weaker. It'll be really interesting to follow the Bears this year and see how they do.

      Also, shout out to Alastair for the Lee Bum-young Golden Glove! He's giving Gangwon some love.

  2. I'm glad to see Steve has gone bold with his relegation predictions!
