The K League United Elimination Game - Round 13


Eleven became nine in the last round of the K League United Elimination Game as Bucheon 1995 fell to a bottom of the table FC Anyang to spring a surprise on some of our remaining competitors. With hardly any safe bets remaining, we enter Round Thirteen and it is all to play for.

Round Twelve Roundup



If there was a such thing as a sure thing, we would never play the game. 

So it was that 9th place Anyang, who has scored 16 goals in 17 games, won on the road to 3rd place Bucheon 1995 who has scored 24 goals in 17 games knocking out Phil Mason and making the once-seeming invincible Lex Nande look all too human. 

So it is in sports is how it is in life. 

Phil played a FANTASTIC game, his three losses coming from K-League 2 playoff spot hopefuls Busan and Bucheon 1995, and Champions League contender Ulsan Hyundai. Phil will feel bad for a while. 

Mark Kelly also declined to pick, giving up his third and final life. 

This round saw two Cruzados Verdes in a head to head when Wonbin Bae chose FC Seoul while Matthew Binns took Daegu in an audacious, but ultimately rewarding, pick. 

Adam Hicks was by himself choosing Gyeongnam FC, and Ferdinand Scheibl, James Edrupt, Todd Wilde, and Jon Christian all took the safe choice of Gangwon against the Jeonnam Dragons. 

I also want to give a special shout out to Todd Wilde and Ferdinand Scheibl. Todd last lost a life in round 2(!) and Ferdinand has been perfect since round 3. Great job, guys. Both have two lives remaining. 


The remaining lives table after the weekend's action

43 was 11 is now 9. 

There are no obvious choices in this game. Beware of “safe” choices. 

I’m taking Gwangju.

Unfortunately the deadline for new competitors has passed, but this competition will be running again at the start of next season.

Please enter using the form at bottom of this article. If you wish to change your decision prior to the deadline, please contact either Jon Christian or site editor Matthew Binns. You can also contact them if you cannot remember which teams you selected in previous rounds, though please make sure to check for your name in our previous weekly posts if you can.
