Schedule Weekend Oct 3rd

These 2x a week updates are tough! 

Good news is that Park Joo Ho and Kim Jin Sun have won military exemption and can now play their careers out completely without disruption.  Hopefully PJH signs an extension soon.  I imagine that both AG players probably won't be ready to play for several weeks.

Kim Bo Kyung was unused midweek and I imagine the streak will continue while still under interim manager who berated him in press after the cup loss.

Son Heung Min starred in the midweek CL match, assisting one with a shot that deflected off GK(albeit due to Julio Cesar's dreadful goalkeeping) right into Kiessling's path, and then a nice first touch shot off Bellarabi's cross to help Leverkusen get their first win of the '14-15 CL campaign.  He was strong and had some good passes, though he probably should have scored right before HT when he took the ball past the entire backline and had 1 on 1 with GK but couldn't turn his shot into net.

Ji Dong Won played 90 with BVB II (reserves).  He showed some good touches and ran well.  But he appears to be possible (/probable) with reserves again both to get match minutes and help BVB II get out of relegation zone.

Lee Chung Yong was an unused sub midweek.  With the future of manager uncertain, its unclear how LCY may fit into desperation battle but Bolton didn't play better without him so he may start this weekend.

Ki was good again vs his former club.  He looked a bit eager to get a goal in the first 30 but soon settled back into his more usual role afterwards as Swansea was having difficulty retaining possession.  Ki played tough even as Swansea went down to 10 men.  He should start again.

Hong Jeong Ho came on as a defensive sub again.  Probably will be the same bench role this week.

Yun looks completely out and is probably hoping for a loan to the Championship.  Probably no squad.

Koo has been doing some training so hopefully he's nearing a return to match fitness and can play.  May be bench if healthy as he works his way back.
