    End-of-season's greetings as we put a cap on the 2022 campaign for Korean club football by looking back at the year that was. With headlines to review, tactics and trends to consider and editor's awards to contest in addition to those making Santa's naughty and nice list, we've put it all together in our longest K League United Podcast to date!
    It's that time of year again where K League United writers from across the country come together to celebrate the festive season in our annual Christmas episode. Matthew Binns hosts alongside Paul Neat and Ryan Walters in a slightly altered version of our seasonal special.
     
    In a bumper edition of the podcast, Paul goes through the headlines and biggest news stories of the year before Nathan Sartain joins us to give us the statistical verdict on the year that was.
     
    Later, Paul is joined by Michael Redmond and Mike Brandon to unwrap the K League 2 and select which sides make the naughty and nice list, before K League TV commentator Alex Jensen joins Matthew to review the K League 1.
     
    Finally, Matthew, Paul and Ryan reconvene to give their editors' picks for the K League United awards this season before then diving in to a festive mailbag.

    In the end, Korea would fall at the hands of Brazil, losing 4-1 in the Round of 16. However, their efforts and performances in this World Cup left supporters hopeful of the future for the Taegeuk Warriors. This K League United Podcast looks at Korea's time in Qatar and ahead to legacy this might leave.
     
    Korea's progression to the knockout stage of the World Cup for the first time since 2010 was where the fairytale was to end as they came up against one of the tournament favourites Brazil in blistering form. However, Korea exit the tournament viewed in a far more positive light, both at home and overseas, for the entertaining, attacking displays and that dramatic finish against Portugal.
     
    Matthew Binns is joined by Ryan Walters and Michael Redmond to go over the Brazil game and the competition as a whole before moving onto the future for Korea's National Team. With manager Paulo Bento announcing he is stepping down from the position, there's also time to talk about the legacy he will leave.

Fantastic Podcast

Over the last few years I’ve started to become incredibly interested in Asian football, whether it be J-League, K-League or Chinese Super League. I feel that’s it an area in the world of football that goes unnoticed and is definitely underestimated for its talent.

The K-League United Podcast has been a fantastic listen and I’m so glad to have come across their podcast. It’s unfortunate that I have found the podcast late, as I know I would have enjoyed listening to the episodes when they were current to the time. However, what has been a loss, has now become a big game. Over the last few weeks I have been continually listening to the episodes from the beginning and learning a lot more about the league, players, rules and general knowledge over the last few seasons. As of today, I have finally caught up to the latest episode and I look forward to listening in every week from now on. As well as the podcast, they have a great presence on twitter and Instagram. Constantly providing updates and live commentary of games.

It’s a brilliant podcast and Ryan, Paul and Matt are fantastic hosts with extensive knowledge and passion for football. It’s also been enjoyable listening to the various guests, players and managers they have had on and being able to listen to their takes, interviews and thoughts on their teams.
