Five Things from Round 1

After a long, cold winter, regular hosts Ryan Walters, Matthew Binns, and Peter Hampshire finally have some K League action to discuss! Along with writers across the country, they pick five of the most intriguing storylines from the opening round to discuss in depth.

The first segment begins with Matthew and Peter's post match discussion in Jeonju where defending champions Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors got their campaign off to a winning start. But was it convincing?

Hopping back to the Bunker, Michael Redmond joins to discuss Seoul E-Land's thumping 3-0 win over Busan IPark for their first ever opening day victory. Before departing, Michael also helps break down FC Anyang's shock win over promotion hopefuls Gyeongnam FC.

The second segment begins in Ulsan where Ryan is joined post-match by a jubilant Dan Croydon to go over Ulsan Hyundai's 5-0 thrashing of Gangwon FC and whether or not there's much to take away from a match that pivoted on a red card.

For the fifth and final topic, the hosts discuss the new U22 rule in depth and whether or not its current implementation is what the rule was designed for.

Lastly, the Eulji Lewis Mailbag is back! Questions range from executive resume omissions to regretting predictions after round 1 and everything in between.

All that and more in this edition of the K League United Podcast!
