Star Midfielder – I Can’t Be In Two Places At Once – Happy At Newcastle

It’s safe to say that Ki Sung-yueng has now settled in well at Newcastle and has been a regular ever since he came on early in the second half against Watford.

We won that game when Ki sent in a perfect free kick that Perez headed home to give us our first win of the season.

And Ki has looked a class player and very experienced playing recently for Newcastle.

An excellent acquisition by Rafa as a free agent from Swansea last summer.

Ki Sung-yueng – happy at Newcastle

Ki is in the South Korea squad for the Asia Cup which \begins on January 5th, and the final is on February 1st so Liverpool on Boxing Day could be his last game before he joined the squad.

Ki was asked when he would be meeting up with his Korean teammates as reported in the Shields Gazette:

“I don’t know. It isn’t confirmed yet, but, by the FIFA rules, it’s two weeks before the first game, so it could be after next week.”

“I think they’re talking, there are negotiations, so it’s too many games I’ll be missing. It depends on the games.”

“The final is on February 1, so it’s quite a long time. “But I don’t want to be greedy, because we have good players.”

“If I can’t play, I can’t play. Also, it’s crucial for my country. They haven’t won it for nearly 60 years.”

“I can’t be in two places at once.”

“I’m happy we’ve put this run of form together before I leave,”

“I don’t know when I’m going to leave, because there are not many games left in which I can play.”

“So as much as I can, I try to win every game, and then of course I feel a little sorry for the team, as they’re in the middle of the season.”

“But at least we’re in good shape.”

“I don’t know when I come back if my place will be there.”

“But I’m very pleased and satisfied so far with the team and everything I play for.”

Good comments there from the mature South Korean.

South Korea play their first game on January 7th against the Philippines in Dubai.

Let’s hope we have more wins before then as we play Fulham (H), Liverpool (A), Watford (A) and Manchester United (H) before that date.

Comments welcome.

    Ash retaining some % of the club makes sense to me. He has already said the new owners must prove they have the funds to take the club to the next level. Imagine if it follows the Man City route and the club is worth £2bn in the next 5 years, even if he has 5% that would be £100m for him. The man is too greedy to cut ties just like that overnight.

    Makes sense Coll. And if olg is flying a kite, well who cares. Its the self important indignant screeching of the tsunkis that’s more revealing. Imagine if olg is correct? Egg on the faces of the screamers. If he’s wrong, then the rest of us will only be annoyed by Ashley in reality, not olg.

    Before Rondon got off the mark, I think Mitro had scored something like seven goals. I said on here following Rondon’s first that despite the head start, that Rondon would score more goals than Mitro this season.
    Bearing in mind that I’m not sure Rondon has scored double figures in the PL during his time at West Brom, I may have been a touch hasty, but I’m sticking by that prediction based entirely on my trust in Rafa.
    Rafa wanted Rondon here ahead of Mitro because he obviously believed Rondon could play to his plan better than Mitro could.
    Rondon is catching up. Is it now 7-4?
    In true Baldrick fashion, there is a cunning plan involved I’m my calculations. That cunning plan Involves Lascelles getting a rise out of Mitro on Saturday, hopefully resulting in a three match ban – minimum… Bwhahahaha.
    There is indeed method to my madness. 🙂
