Gimpo FC is still the most unpredictable ‘variable’ in the K-League 2 promotion war. Gimpo won 1-0 in the 25th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ against FC Anyang held at Gimpo Salter Stadium on the 5th. In the 38th minute of the second half when the score was tight 0-0, Lewis exploded the winning goal with a powerful header. Gimpo added 3 valuable points and moved up to 3rd place with 39 points, overtaking Anyang with 38 points.
Gimpo operated Plan B that day. It was a ‘counterattack after first defense’. Gimpo has conceded only 13 goals this season and is recording the lowest point in the overwhelming league. The core of Gimpo’s defense was ‘pressure’. Coach Go Jeong-woon further increased the intensity of all-round pressure, which has been powerful since the 2022 season. Gimpo did not back down and reduced the burden of defense with high-intensity pressure that pressed the opponent from the front. Gimpo, who conceded the second most runs (65) last season, has been reborn as the team with the least concessions under this pressure.
However, it was impossible to maintain the intensity of the pressure in each game forever. The injured came out one by one, and the heat continued, and the condition of the players was not normal. Coach Go brought out a new card. It was ‘real football’. In the last away game against Gyeongnam FC, coach Koh, who added a valuable point by drawing 0-0 with a play, deepened the color even more in the match against Anyang. It was a strategy that clearly intended to win in front of the home fans, based on the record of winning most of the games if only the first run was not conceded.
The defensive line of Gimpo, which was determined and kept, was very solid. Coach Goh’s three-back, which he developed throughout the winter, did not waver and blocked Anyang’s mighty attacking team well. It was such a sense of organization and stability that Anyang coach Lee Woo-hyung stuck out his tongue. After blocking the opponent’s attack well, Gimpo secured a precious victory with a single shot from Lewis. Coach Goh also gave thumbs up to the mentality of the players who faithfully completed the prepared strategy.먹튀검증
Equipped with Plan B, Gimpo gained more power. Ko plans to run the league appropriately with Plan A, which emphasizes pressure, depending on his opponent. After going undefeated in the first 12 games, Gimpo took the ‘surprising lead’, and later showed a slowdown with a draw in 6 matches due to overlapping opponent checks. It seemed like they were going downhill, but Gimpo proudly succeeded in rebounding. 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in the last 5 matches. The aspect of a strong team killer that accumulated points against Sangmu Kim, Anyang, and Gyeongnam was still the same. Now, after 25 rounds, Gimpo’s ranking is 3rd. it’s a playoff While Gimcheon, Busan I-Park, Anyang, and Gyeongnam, which were evaluated as candidates for promotion before the opening, are competing for the lead, Gimpo has the power to change the game. Gimpo, with the addition of a ‘new weapon’ called ‘silly football’, is a definite ‘dark horse’.
