Ulsan Hyundai is now trying to become a team that jinxes the opponent.
Ulsan won 3-2 against Suwon Samsung in the 14th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 6:00 pm on the 21st. Ulsan, who earned 3 points, maintained first place in the league and widened the gap with FC Seoul in second place to 13 points.
Ulsan broke the last jinx they had in this game. Suwon expedition jinx. In the meantime, Ulsan broke the ‘Jeonbuk jinx’ by winning the championship over Jeonbuk Hyundai, and showed strength against longtime rival Pohang Steelers. The Daegu FC away jinx also disappeared from the game on the 5th. However, the Suwon expedition jinx still remained. Ulsan lost 1 draw and 2 losses in Suwon since coach Hong Myung-bo took office, and even last season when they won the league championship, Ulsan suffered a defeat in Suwon and bowed their heads. In this match, the score was 2-2 after a fierce bloody battle, but Martin Adam’s winning goal at the end of the second half broke the jinx of Suwon away.
Coach Hong Myung-bo, who said “I’m not conscious” when asked about the jinx after the last game and before this game, said after the match against Suwon ended with a victory, “I feel bad for being a jinx. I think it’s a good thing just to have resolved that.”
Then, coach Hong said, “We are constantly breaking jinxes, but I think it’s important to break jinxes and create jinxes for opponents.”
It’s a pretty scary statement. Ulsan is building a solo system in the league with performance based on stronger organization this season. Now they have entered the second round robin, but the difference between them and the second place is 13 points. The record of 14 matches is 12 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, and there is no loss except for Daejeon Hana Citizen. The number of goals that were behind Seoul was overturned in this game, and it maintains the highest number of points and the minimum number of goals in the league. In addition to the records visible on the leaderboard right now, Ulsan is showing an overwhelming appearance in various game indicators. It is even called a ‘natural disaster’ among fans, half-jokingly and half-seriously. 메이저놀이터
Of course, jinxes don’t happen overnight. However, director Hong Myung-bo seems confident enough. Ulsan is slowly building a foothold to jinx the opponent by winning consecutive victories against the teams that met and won in the first round robin (Gangwon FC, Seoul, Suwon). After defeating all the jinxes, Ulsan is now preparing to instill a nightmare-like jinx on their opponents.
