The K League United Elimination Game - Round 10


Another difficult weekend leaves us with just eighteen competitors remaining, ten with only a single life, as we enter the tenth round of the K League United Elimination Game. With more heartache and tears ahead, who will still be standing after next weekend's fixtures?

Round Nine Roundup


"Koreans spend half the year going to the funerals of tiger victims, and the other half hunting tigers," is a quote about Korean life at the beginning of the 20th Century. 

I feel like it might mean something for us here in the elimination game. In Round Nine, four more players were knocked out by choosing what most people would say would be “safe” choices, the biggest safe choice of all being the Suwon Bluewings who have played better on the road and also the second best team in the league against a FC Seoul side that is facing relegation, with no manager, and a team lacking stars. 

So obviously FC Seoul won, and the three players who took them are all down a life, two of whom was their death knell. 

Jack Murland played a great game. His two other missteps were by choosing Ulsan in Round Two as 14 other players did the same week when Sangju knocked off the Asian Champions League giants, and by choosing Ansan in round eight, again as a plurality of people did also. 

Chris Sink, a music teacher in rural Georgia (US), played a stunner of a game as he joined in Round Three with only one life and still managed all the way to the 9th round. Impressive. 

The other two losers are Rebecca Webb and James Mckeon who chose the Ansan Greeners and Pohang Steelers, respectively. 

James lost his first life when choosing the mighty Jeonbuk against Incheon in round two (Round Two was particularly bloody). He also chose Suwon FC last week in one of the smartest moves to make (I did it too) only to be outdone by Daejeon. 

Rebecca Webb had chosen a lot of strong teams all throughout the contest, but as she was left with weaker and weaker teams to choose, her luck ran out. She had chosen three of the K-League 1’s top four teams and both of the K League 2’s top two. 



TWO players have all three lives left, Lex Nande and James Edrupt. The Los Cruzados Verdes have been playing this game for as long as I’ve known, and Lex and James have ALWAYS been the hardest ones to beat. Why should this year be any different? 

Six players have two lives, and ten players have not given up hope because we must never give up hope. This game is still winnable. 

In the spirit of transparency and fairness, I will be choosing Sangju for this round.
