Recent league 5G draw, repeated nightmare

from the beginning of the season Jeonbuk, which was severely shaken from the beginning of the season, is now in the second half of the league and appears to be repeating the nightmare it experienced at the beginning of the season.

Jeonbuk, which got off to a disappointing start with a 2-1 loss to Ulsan Hyundai in the opening game, accumulated 6 losses in 10 league games amidst extreme sluggish performance and faced the worst situation when coach Kim Sang-sik, who had led the team from the 2021 season, voluntarily resigned. . In addition, Jeonbuk, which faced a serious situation during this period with a boycott of support for the coach and even sniping at the CEO, gradually began to recover the mood under acting coach Kim Doo-hyun.

Assistant Manager Kim, who temporarily took over the team’s baton before the 11th round match against FC Seoul in the league, quickly recovered Jeonbuk’s collapse. Kim’s Jeonbuk, which started with broken tactics and showed good use of each player’s individual characteristics, recorded a winning streak against Suwon Samsung-Ulsan-Daegu-Gangwon, helping Jeonbuk, which had been at the bottom of the rankings, reach the top rankings, and in what was the last game, 18th place. He completely revived the team with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory against Gangwon in the round. Manager Kim bid a beautiful farewell to Jeonbuk, putting the team on an upward trajectory by recording 6 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss in 9 games including the league and FA Cup.

Jeonbuk appointed Romanian coach Dan Petrescu, who has experience as a coach in China and the Middle East, as the successor to acting manager Kim Doo-hyeon, and showed its determination to continue the attacking soccer style that symbolized Jeonbuk in the past. Coach Petrescu, who is based on bold forward passes and attacking soccer, had a disappointing start with a 2-0 loss against Gwangju in his debut game, but quickly established his soccer skills and continued the winning streak.

Coach Petrescu had established a good trend in the early days of his tenure by scoring three points against Jeju-Seoul-Suwon FC, but he began to falter after suffering his second loss since taking office against Pohang Steelers in the 24th round, and lost 2 points in the match against Incheon in the 25th round. Although they achieved a 0-0 victory, they fell into a serious slump after recording 3 draws and 2 losses against Suwon (draw), Ulsan (loss), Daejeon (draw), Jeju (draw), and Gangwon (loss).

‘Final A’ not guaranteed

Currently, Jeonbuk is ranked 5th in the league with 43 points. At one time, they were closely chasing Pohang, who ranked second in the league, and were hoping to win the league dramatically, but as of now, winning the league is already out of reach.

Jeonbuk is 2 points behind Gwangju in 3rd place and tied on points with Seoul in 4th place, but Jeonbuk is behind by many points and is settled in 5th place. However, if Gwangju and Seoul add points as the 30th round is not over, they will be able to secure a ticket to the Champions League. This leads to a situation that is difficult to predict.

In addition, Jeonbuk is being chased by teams ranked below them. The rankings can change at any time after the 30th round, as the team is tied with 6th place Incheon, which won on the 16th, with 43 points, and has a 2 point gap with 7th place Daegu, which has a game ahead of it. 

Since the introduction of the promotion and split systems for the first time in the 2013 season, Jeonbuk is currently the only K League 1 team that has not fallen to Final B (formerly lower split). When traditional great teams such as Seoul, Ulsan, Jeju, and Pohang experienced difficulties while experiencing Final B side by side, Jeonbuk was the only team that maintained its pride by always staying in the top rankings.

Exactly 10 years after the split system was implemented, Jeonbuk faced a crisis that could lead them to Final B for the first time in the club’s history. Jeonbuk, which had suffered from an all-time poor performance since the start of the season and dented its pride as a traditional powerhouse, showed its worst performance with 3 draws and 2 losses in the last 5 league games, and with 3 rounds left in the regular round, it began to falter again like it did at the beginning of the season.

Jeonbuk was aiming for a miraculous comeback win after the change of coach, but now they are in a position where they have to worry about getting to Final B right away. Will Jeonbuk be able to show a turnaround in the remaining three games and avoid the worst? Let’s pay attention to Jeonbuk in the remaining regular rounds.
