Schedule for Weekend of May 1st

May already?  The season winds down with Kim Bo Kyung's final game of the season, but still a lot on the line for CL/EL spots for Leverkusen/Hoffenheim/Augsburg, and still a small sliver of hope for survival for QPR.

Hopefully we see more starts this week:

Kim Bo Kyung's Wigan is now officially relegated.  He probably will start but perhaps they give players who figure into next season (Kimbo's contract ends this summer) a chance.  If he does play, he'll be looking to impress scouts for next season.

Hong Jeong Ho hasn't been excelling but not much alternatives.  He should start.

Ji Dong Won is in a similar boat... most other offensive players for Augsburg have really struggled so Ji may get a chance to start this time though bench is very possible if not probable.

Kim Jin Su has been given quite a break and perhaps this is the weekend he gets to start again though bench is a definite possibility.

Yun Suk Young came on as an offensive sub and his starting may depend on how defensive QPR set up.  I suspect that Ramsey will have him start to try to exploit Liverpool's softness out wide.

Ki Sung Yueng was a surprise bench last weekend with what turned out to be a minor injury.  With Montero hurt, I expect Ki to return to start.

Son Heung Min has struggled as of late, so I think that he may be benched for Brandt who has the hotter hand though a start wouldn't be out of possibility.

Lee Chung Yong will look to build upon his cameo last week though I expect him to start off on bench rest of the year.

Koo Ja Cheol has been starting when healthy.  He may start again though he hasn't been great.

Park Joo Ho on the other hand has been excellent and will start at LB having just had his contract extended another two years when Mainz exercised their option.

Suk Hyun Jun started last week and I imagine that he will do so again.
