A South Korean in the Toon? Like it.
“We have a manager now whose eye for detail is incredible. The injury record since he’s been here has been phenomenal and that’s down to his meticulous planning, when to use or rest players. At the same time, he has a depth of feeling. It means a lot. Some people have worked here who wouldn’t have a clue about tradition, about Geordie people.”

But aye, he's free, that's obviously the only reason we're signing him. Canny tragic like, not that I think he's bad, but ye nah.

I think he is a canny player, wanted us to go for him, good for the squad.

Though it should be a signing to beef up the squad BUT we know that is unlikely.

Is he the sort of player who will result in a large number of South Koreans suddenly following NUFC? Potential money spinner.
he was their captain at the world cup, so maybe

Decent on a free but offers no improvement to the squad at all. Like for like with Merino for me
and now Tudor's gone down for Newcastle

I can't remember him playing vs Germany?

Don't know that much about him tbh. Saw him a couple of times at Swansea and he looked like one of those players who threatens to do good stuff but never really does. Hopefully he's better than that obviously.

This is only a good signing if it frees up funds for Rafa.

In an ideal world, us signing Ki might allow us to move onto other priorities. It could be another reason why we've been reluctant to spend.

Makes the Sturaro (sp) links look a less likely.

The only thing I remember thinking was that he's alot bigger than you would expect a South Korean stereotype to be.

What's his position? Is he a midfielder or defender? Utility type?

Tidy player. Good with Celtic. Did his best for Swansea. Can’t see him starting ahead of either Diame or Shelvey so a weird one. Good squad cover I suppose.

Centre mid. Good on the ball, likes a set piece and gets himself about the pitch well enough. Probably guilty of not fulfilling his potential throughout his career.

Seems a wise move generally if Merino wants away and we're looking to tightly balance money. Rafa will get this lad playingn as well.
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Feel like he's a threat from set pieces. Anytime I watch Swansea, he wins headers from corners. Makes sense as I see he's 6'2.

Good signing.

Had to head over to RTG to see the verdict. Whilst many agree he's a very good signing on a free, a few others seem to think they wouldn't want him there 'under the new regime' in league one... One even saying he opened the thread praying they hadn't signed him  :lol:
