The K League United Elimination Game - Round 9

Round Eight saw us say goodbye to five more competitors as tensions continue to heighten in our K League United Elimination Game. A heroic Seoul E-Land ruined chances for many as they returned from a goal down to defeat high flying Ansan Greeners 2-1. Elsewhere, Daejeon Citizen upset the supposed odds with an easy victory over a lacklustre Suwon FC. With lives tumbling, we enter Round Nine of the challenge.

Round Eight Roundup

“HE’S CUT! HE’S CUT! THE RUSSIAN’S CUT!!” Is from the movie Rocky IV when Rocky made the seemingly invincible Ivan Drago bleed. It’s kind of resonating with me after I lost my first life in Round Eight. So it goes. 

We’re saying goodbye to five players after Round Eight, Viva La K-League, Michael Welch, (Incheon) Luke Evans, Adhitya Pratama, and Jun Kim. 

Looking over the teams they chose, three of them lost a life on Jeju. Jeju was supposed to be a title contender this season. Instead, they’re causing heartbreak on this website. Pohang caused problems for two of them, another team that is incredibly difficult to predict this season. 

They all played an incredibly solid game, but luck just wasn’t with them. 

James Edrupt, Lex Nadene, and Wonbin Bae are the only three players who still have all three of their lives. Nearly half of all of the players we began with are no longer with us. 13 players have only one life, while six have two. 

We will NOT be playing on Wednesday as the K-League 2 are not playing. For fairness, I always make my pick publicly. For Round Nine, I will be choosing Asan Mugunghwa.

Take a look at the upcoming matches and select a side that you think will not lose this weekend, but you must not select a team you have previously picked in the first eight rounds. If your team is defeated, you lose a life. When you have no lives remaining, then it is game over for you.

We are not playing the midweek fixtures as only K League 1 are in action.

However, the game between Seoul E-Land and Daejeon Citizen has only recently been postponed and will not be played until August. As people still have have over half their choices left, we kindly ask you to ignore the absence of this fixture and select from the teams that are available this weekend.
