KLU Pod | Playoff Recap, VAR, ACL Group Stage

After 27 rounds and two playoff matches, the K League 2 season came to a close with Suwon FC gaining promotion back to K1... not without its controversies.

Ryan Walters welcomes by Matthew Binns and George Slade to the virtual Kim Do-hoon Bunker to break down the K League 2 playoff matches of the season. They start in Changwon where Gyeongnam FC moved on after a 1-1 draw against Daejeon Hana Citizen with a disputed VAR call taking center stage late in the game. 

The conversation then shifts North where Suwon FC also benefitted from being the higher seed and was promoted to K League 1... after a contentious late VAR call. After getting most of the VAR whinging out of the way, they do briefly discuss why Suwon went up and whether or not this playoff system is the right one moving forward.

The second segment brings reprieve from VAR in the form of AFC Champions League. Ryan, Matt, and George go group by group assessing each K League team's performance thus far. They start with the rollercoaster that has been FC Seoul from their 5-0 dismantling of Chiangrai United to back-to-back losses. 

Moving on to Group F, they talk about Yoon Bit-garam's meteoric rise on the international stage and the Horangi securing top spot in the group. Group G brings up the Suwon Samsung Bluewings unenviable position of having to beat Vissel Kobe by multiple goals in order to advance. And finally, they discuss the first Korean team eliminated from the contest: Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors. 

Lastly, the three open up a full Eulji Lewis Mailbag with questions ranging from formations to ACL, and back to – you guessed it – VAR. All that and more in this edition of the K League United Podcast.
