I'm still deep in Korean studying, and a little Spanish too, and am afraid this diary is taking a backseat right now as I don't have the energy for amusing anecdotes while my head is swimming with foreign languages. However, here is a match report for the Daegu FC game on Saturday that I emailed to a few people.
>Daegu FC 5 - Incheon Utd 0
>On a beautifully warm day that turned pleasantly cool later on, Daegu FC saw off northern rivals Incheon Utd five goals to nil, in a one sided match that demonstrated the devastating potential for the home team. Attended by approximately 4-5000 supporters, including five Westerners by the names of Nev, Eileen, Maebh, Tim and Sara, the match kicked off to fireworks and the match provided some fireworks of its very own.
>Brazilian Jefferson dominated proceedings and scored a fantastic solo goal before the end of the first half, after having a goal earlier ruled offside by the idiot referee who blatantly doesn't know the offside rule, unlike Maebh and all other fellow females (of course) who grew up with a detailed knowledge of the rule. However, the referee made up for his mistake by later sending off an Incheon Utd supporter, a decision deemed harsh by Daegu supporter Nev, who was quoted as saying "That seemed harsh."
>It may have been a turning point, as in the second half it was all one way traffic, as Daegu pushed forward towards where their dedicated and vociferous band of blue-clad supporters were. Jefferson contributed to another fine goal scored by some guy with a Korean name, before being viciously and cynicially hacked off the field by the brutal Incheon Utd players. Actually, it appeared he had a knee injury, and after another sterling performance all of Daegu city must be hoping for a swift recovery.
>In his absence, Daegu more than compensated by a fantastic team display that saw 3 goals in the last 20 minutes. The Incheon defence were to blame for a number, as Daegu penetrated them like... well, the similie is unnecessary. A glorious day for Daegu supporters, and it can have been no coincidence that the number of new Western supporters equalled that of the tally of goals.
