Recap + Schedule Weekend Feb 13th

May have to bail on some of my watching with Valentines Day and all that but fortunately most of the UK players are out of the FA Cup (and Lee Chung Yong probably won't make it anyway).

Koo Ja Cheol and Park Joo Ho both appear to be in training and so will be in better contention to play and Mainz looks to stay out of the relegation zone and find some form.

I think Hong Jeong Ho is still out but he's doing fitness exercises so maybe a return is getting near.

Ji Dong Won should start but could be bench.

Son Heung Min is getting back into full practice and Leverkusen is running thin with all the injuries so he will start.

Kim Jin Su missed an earlier training session but he should be back and start.

Lee Chung Yong hasn't returned to training so he should be out this weekend.

Suk Hyun Jun should start.

Yun Suk Young was a mixed bag midweek getting the start and playing 90.  He had a few errors and often had trouble tracking the wide attackers.  Hopefully he tightens it up and I think he should start though he may be benched.

Ki looked like the Asian Cup had finally taken its toll and he lacked his usual composure and sharpness on the ball, getting dispossessed easily a number of times.  He played the full 90 and the weekend off will hopefully be enough for the next stretch.

Kim Bo Kyung started and played just shy of an hour.  He had a good attempt on goal and hopefully his match fitness is getting to the level where he can go the full match and help create some goals.
