Schedule - Weekend Aug 14th

So there's a free trial of Fox Soccer 2 Go this weekend which is good as I don't expect much to watch in UK.  And KPAs do get a debut on more available Fox Sports 2 this weekend so some of us get HD/DVR finally.

Hong Jeong Ho has been starting regularly, though he looked a bit tight during cup match.  He should get the start.

Ji Dong Won was on the bench but an unused sub.  Perhaps he gets a look off the bench but I don't expect him to start.

Ryu Seung Woo has been bench but I don't think he will be used.

Son Heung Min should start after missing the first match, though after a good showing by Leverkusen, perhaps Schmidt goes with what works and leaves Son on the bench.

Kim Jin Su was an unused sub last weekend but his competition for LB was hurt so KJS should get the start.

Koo Ja Cheol was an unused sub... perhaps he gets sub minutes but probably won't start.

Park Joo Ho should start after a good performance though Bengtsson may get a look.

Ki Sung Yueng's agency said he'd be out for 2-3 weeks so he's out this week. Ki returns to training today and may be available for the weekend.  I think it's too soon for him to start but I wouldn't rule it out.  The likely scenario even if healthy is for him to be on the bench or altogether rested to avoid aggravating the injury.

Yun Suk Young has returned to training but he's trying to catch up from lack of preseason and is still 2-3 weeks out.

Lee Chung Yong didn't even make the squad last week with a minor knock and depth issues with some normal starters not able to start.  Maybe he gets a chance to warm the bench this week.

Suk Hyun Jun should start.
