The K League United Elimination Game - Round 8


Once again, Sangju Sangmu caused the biggest upset of the weeekend, dispatching of high flying Pohang Steelers and costing six competitors one of their lives, ending the game for half of them. With over a third of the teams available chosen, things start to get even more interesting as we enter Round Eight of the K League United Elimination Game!

Round Seven Roundup


It is human nature for us to find patterns in life’s experiences. We do it whether patterns exist or not and in both good and bad circumstances. When you wear a new shirt and your team wins 5-0, you now have a “lucky” shirt. When you shave your beard and your team loses to the bottom of the table, you never shave again. We, as people, have an innate desire to make sense of the world.

To find balance.

And harmony.

Order.

So the week that Arsenal’s Wenger is Out is the same week that K-Leauge United’s Ryan Walters is out of the Elimination Game fits that need. Ryan made really solid picks. One of his three losses was by choosing a team currently in the top four of their league, and one loss was by Asian Champions League competitors Ulsan. That’s how it goes sometimes. 

Tim Barnes also went out this week. Tim played an INCREDIBLY aggressive game. However, forecasts for the leagues at the beginning of the season didn’t really go as anyone expected. Two early losses would be hard for anyone to overcome.

We’re saying goodbye to Ryan Walker. Ryan went out by choosing 2 of the current top 4 K League 1 teams and by choosing Busan, a team who has only lost twice this season. 

Mike O’Neill sent out a Tweet on Friday evening panicked as he got the Asan/Anyang/Ansan teams mixed up. His third and final life came when he chose Bucheon against who he thought was winless Anyang. Long story short, the Greeners are now in 2nd and Mr. O’Neill is waiting for next year. 

That is Round 7. We had no head-to-heads, and only 9 people lost a life, two of whom were from not choosing. 


This game is PAUSED for this coming Wednesday Night’s game as the K-League 2 will not be in action. We will resume on the weekend. 

For Round 8, I’m taking Suwon FC. 

If you need your list, e-mail me or you can tweet at me.
