Weekend Recap May 12th and Weekend Preview May 19th

I’ll be honest, I thought all the leagues were done with the BL and PL.  It was a pretty poor watching weekend for me between Mother’s Day and lack of minutes.  I don’t know if much better this weekend given LSW “injury” and no stakes for KCH.

Lee Seung Woo-- Got a full 90 and looked on touch video similar to previous showings: a bit over eager, a bit soft but also some flashes of something. He’s out this weekend due to “injury”. As to just something that allows him to join KNT training early or something minor that makes sense for him to go join KNT anyway is unclear and not that important. He will want to do well to escape Serie B and I imagine Verona might be interested in helping him along if that brings in funds for a more B appropriate player.

Kwon Chang Hoon-- Scored again as he was rewarded for his hustle as he pressed GK and fortuitous bounce allowed him an easy goal. He will be looking to top the team in goals which would be an impressive showing for a guy who’s not been a regular starter and not a true forward either.

Suk Hyun Jun-- Got the start, played 70 and had a hand in goal I think based in reports IIRC. But Troyes still remain in relegation zone and a draw isn’t enough.

Koo Ja Cheol-- Out injures.

Lee Chung Yong-- He got a five minute cameo to say farewell. His first touch was atrocious as he went tentatively for the ball, but was good given the low tempo and pressure.

Ki Sung Yueng-- Left out of side, and unclear if Ki checked out early, Swansea let him go early, or Carvahal looking to shuffle things in an attempt to end season on a good note.

Son Heung Min-- Came on with eight minutes or so left as he revealed he’s been playing with an ankle injury for a while which explains Poch’s careful use of his minutes and his drop off in form. Not much to say about his showing except that Lucas and Lamela looked pretty good and he will have a tough challenge when he comes back from WC/AG
