Will we make double figures?

It’s under 48 hours until the first ever World Cup to be held in Africa kicks off and, in my very humble, mostly biased and generally opinionated opinion, it can’t come soon enough. Europe has become a dull wasteland devoid of interest since the football season ended and, whilst Korea and Japan keep the fires burning, there seems something inherently wrong with watching important league and cup games involving teams shorn of their international players. Still, it gives me a great excuse when Yokohama F-Marinos inevitably lose.

So, why did I decide to do a blog on the three East Asian teams who’ve made it to South Africa? Boredom mostly but also a random love of Korean and Japanese football. Six years living there will do that to you especially if you happen to be there during the 2002 World Cup.

Some of you reading this, that’s if anyone actually is, may know me from MOIST and know I am a big fan of the Yokohama F-Marinos. People new here now know this, which is nice. I also claim to be a Suwon Samsung Bluewings fan and have a well documented history of man love directed towards Yoo Sang-Chul, Hong Myong-Bo and, ladies favourite, Ahn Jung-Hwan. As for North Korea, well, who doesn’t love an underdog? Especially when they will potentially end up nuking Portugal after being thumped 5-0.

Hopefully this blog will bring you team news, player profiles, match reports, player ratings, idle speculation and all sorts of other junk. The big question is will it get past nine games?



  1. Look foward to the next asian teams of the World Cup update!
