Son Heung-min Bloeug That I Can’t Think Of A Witty Title For

As I’m sure we’re all aware, Son Heung-min currently has the spectre of national service hanging over him. As instructed by law, all South Korean men must enlist for 21 months in the armed forces before they turn 28. Son turns 28 in July 2020 which means that a military call-up would rule him out of the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons. His current contract with the club expires in June 2020. Make of that what you will.

However, as I’m sure we’re all also aware, exemptions can be granted by the South Korean government to sportspeople who excel at certain tournaments. The 2002 South Korean World Cup team, for example, were all excused their national service obligations when they reached the semi-final that year.

South Korea will obviously not be reaching the semi-final of this year’s World Cup so Son has two further ‘escape routes’ if he wishes to avoid national service.

The first of these is the 2018 Asian Games, due to take place in Indonesia in August and September later this year. Technically these games are restricted to players under the age of 23, but three over-age players are permitted and Son, as the current poster boy of South Korea, would be expected to fill one of these slots. The unfortunate thing here is that Son should already be exempt from national service as South Korea won the gold medal in the 2014 competition but, frustratingly, he did not take part in those games so exemption was not granted to him. Why did he not take part I hear you ask? Because his club at the time, Bayer Leverkusen, refused to allow him to participate. Furthermore, as FIFA do not acknowledge the Asian Games, Leverkusen escaped reprimand for their actions.

The second ‘escape route’ is the 2019 Asian Cup, due to take place in the United Arab Emirates in January and February next year. Unlike the 2014 Asian Games, Son did participate in the 2015 competition where South Korea made it to the final only to suffer the heartbreak of defeat to Australia. Son scored a 90th minute equaliser to send the tie into extra time, but Australia went on to win 2-1 and be crowned champions. So near and yet so far.

It is rumoured that there are legal loopholes that Son could exploit, due to the length of time he has spent living in Europe, but when Park Chu-young pulled such a trick in 2012 it did not go down well with the South Korean public and his popularity suffered heavily as a result. Sonny does not strike me as the sort of person who’d go down this route anyway, so if he wants to see his contract with the club extended it looks like he’s going to have to win gold at one of the two forthcoming tournaments. As it is clearly in Tottenham’s best interests not to see him called up for national service I’d be very surprised indeed if the club did a Leverkusen and refused to allow him to participate.

I’m sure I’m not alone in wishing Son the very best in both competitions as, not only is he a great character to have around the place, he’s also pretty useful when it comes to playing soccerball.

    Firstly, I hope so too. So it’s all pinned on him doing a Graham Kelly?!

  • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 05/07/2018 at 12:15 pm

    South Koreans are very proud of their country and they should be. Battered for many years by different countries they got a little peace and have done amazing things with the time.
    Ive spent a fair amount of time in South Korea and think the people are fighters.I see it in Son. How he never gives up and keeps going. He has great talent and sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesnt.Id like us to keep him for he is such a positive force with us and at worst an impact player
    I say good luck to him with his service.
    I guess scoring the winning goal the other days didnt save him from that
    Anyway good luck to Son.

    • UnkleTaff 05/07/2018 at 12:19 pm

      It did occur to me that he might have drawn an extra bit of pleasure from scoring the winner against Germany, where Leverkusen are based, but I also get the impression that he’s proud to be a South Korean and as such might actually want to serve his country by doing his national service.

      • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 05/07/2018 at 12:25 pm

        I think most South Koreans feel that way and you can see with Son his loyalty just oozing out from him even for us

  • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 12:17 pm

    It’s an unusual one for sure, you wouldn’t have thought that we’d extend his contract past June 20, and I’d imagine he’d have little sell-on value with that looming over him (not that I want us to sell him!).
    As you say, let’s hope he gets an exemption asap.

  • 61SpursNut 05/07/2018 at 12:19 pm

    It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that he may want to do his national service.

    • UnkleTaff 05/07/2018 at 12:20 pm

      Indeed. I’ve just made that point above and very nearly made reference to it in the main article.

      Perhaps I should have.

  • Anonymous 05/07/2018 at 12:21 pm

    Don’t like people who look for excuses to wriggle out of their responsibilities.

  • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 12:36 pm

    Whatever happens, whether he wants to do the service or not, It’s a shame that he may be out of the game in his late 20’s, which tends to be a footballers prime. Would we have him back at 30? I suppose that depends on who else we have at the time, but two years out of the game isn’t going to do him any favours in the footballing world.

    • Caspurs 05/07/2018 at 12:44 pm

      I’m sure the club are in communication with the relevant authorities in Korea. The fact they don’t appear to be overly concerned, and not looking to move him on (maximum return), suggests to me Spurs are quietly confident a solution can be found.

  • HD 05/07/2018 at 12:56 pm

    I don’t know that I have ever read/seen/heard of Sonny’s take on this subject. Perhaps it is not something that a Korean male discusses. I certainly recall my personal situation when it was thrust upon me as I was of age for Vietnam and the draft. I met the challenge head on and did my required service (fortunately I did not have to go to Vietnam.) I am only guessing but I would think that an eligible Korean man would not lobby for an exemption as he would then be subject to personal shame. I am assuming that if an exemption is not thrust upon him, he will do his duty and then move on with his life. Interesting situation.

    • UnkleTaff 05/07/2018 at 1:20 pm

      As far as I’m aware he’s not publicly said anything about the situation.

      What would be interesting to know is if any of the two squads of footballers who were granted exemption from national service chose to actually do it anyway.

  • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 05/07/2018 at 1:12 pm

            • 61SpursNut 05/07/2018 at 6:24 pm

              What you see above, Bruxie, is not negativity. It’s hatred.

              • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 6:36 pm

                So who sent the wind up screen shot…which I havent seen..?
                I was refering to tbh’s negativity on his lead articles not his email.
                I can always get over that.
                Gloster seems to be the new Ron at the mo.
                There’s plenty of room on here!

                • Fat Bertha 05/07/2018 at 6:44 pm

                  I like Gos.

                  • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 6:45 pm

                    Me too.

                    • Fat Bertha 05/07/2018 at 6:46 pm

                      Gos or Glos?

                    • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 6:47 pm

                      I like Bros, Luke and Matt Goss.

  • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 6:17 pm

    Both questions are valid. And important.

    • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 6:30 pm

      I’d imagine the screen shots are coming from the same chap who posted two childlike posts under two different names in a row on the last blog.
      I can’t for the life of me think why that should lead to a threat.

      • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 6:38 pm

        Tbh would know…and then you could ban them!

        • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 6:42 pm

          I don’t think we’re into bans, censorship or removing posts. Not yet anyway!

          • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 6:50 pm

            It wasn’t being serious…just provocative.

            • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 6:51 pm

                  Imp ossible.

    • Fat Bertha 05/07/2018 at 6:38 pm

      I did overlook his editorial narrative for the most par , and I never had any personal cause to fall out with him, actually I rather liked his chutzpah.

      I decided to have a break over the summer because I simply couldn’t bear another close season full of ITK bullsh*t, Twitter addicts and the nonstop Enic/Spurs/Levy/the players/the stadium/ are sh*t postings of the bed wetters, some of whom I actually like. I was hoping to go back.

      A long time ago, when match days on H’s blog had become the blood slickened frenzy of self harm that it is, someone suggested to me that a small, private group of like minded chaps might get together online to enjoy watching without having to put up with the irrational bloodletting.

      Nothing happened until Real Fan took H’s advice to start his own blog and started his own blog.

      As you know, there were a lot of regulars who had become disillusioned with Harry’s schtik and that of the growing number of sycophants for whom his every word is manna and had indicated that they’d be interested in joining in.

      In one fell swoop the Flat Earthers and Happy Clappers left The Boy’s blog for the promised land: a land flowing with milk and honey.

      These questions?: Why increase tensions with meaningless emails? Who is sending him screenshots?

      You’ll have to ask him. It’s him sending the emails and visitors to his blog (supposedly) sending the screenshots.

      Be careful though, because if he catches you posting on here he’ll probably bin you over there.

      PS Anyone is welcome here, even you bed-wetters, but be prepared to defend your irrational/hysterical/unhinged position or the Flat Earthers will set the dogs on you.

      • Fat Bertha 05/07/2018 at 6:43 pm

        It’s all a game though ain’t it? Just a bit of fun.

        I used to rag on Raz relentlessly but he took it with good grace as it was never malicious. I’d gladly let him buy me a crate of Guinness.

  • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 6:54 pm

    I really couldn’t care less who bins me. I do however retain the right to visit my favourites. Tbh is one of those as is this. Power to eveyone’s elbow.

    • Fat Bertha 05/07/2018 at 6:59 pm

      Oh I geddit, Bruxie, although if you think *you* retain the *right* to visit wheresoever your heart is content to do so, I’m not sure you do…

      Just being a tease…

    • 61SpursNut 05/07/2018 at 6:59 pm

      ¿are you spanish?

    • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 7:00 pm

      And it’s a shame that some didn’t get that choice. I know that myself and a few other chose to leave there independently, and others on here were banned anyway, but some, like Horndog, were banned over there just for being here. That is very sad, I know he loved the place as much as I did, and I’m sure he would’ve spent time on both if he had the chance.

      • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 7:12 pm

        I hadn’t realised the bannings were not publicised. Dark arts.

        • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 7:19 pm

          • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 7:36 pm

            Who cares?

        • cavey 05/07/2018 at 7:38 pm

          I’m with you all the way Bruxie, no need for any hatred.

          • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 7:49 pm


          • Fat Bertha 05/07/2018 at 8:21 pm

            There’s no hatred here. It’s not in our DNA.

            • 61SpursNut 05/07/2018 at 8:22 pm

              I hate this term, but … ^ THIS!

      • HD 05/07/2018 at 8:04 pm

        To be fair, even though I don’t have to be, as far as I can determine I was banned for posting that I liked being here because this is where my friends are and that I still went to TBH and posted an occasional innocuous comment. Apparently that did not sit to well. In any event I have grown to enjoy this blog tremendously and I thank Flat Oeuf for creating it and allowing me to be a part of it.

  • Fatty B 05/07/2018 at 7:18 pm

    You wrote a decent blog, Taff, which has been swallowed up a tad.

    Posit something else to get things back on track, please.

    • 61SpursNut 05/07/2018 at 7:36 pm

      I’m penning something right now. It may be about an hour or so.
      Hold yer ‘orses chaps.

    • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 7:57 pm

      Make a promise to share your dialogue with TBH off line, then.

      • Fat Bertha 05/07/2018 at 8:20 pm

        No. Why should I?

        He sent me an unsolicited email threatening Real Fan and then called me a smug spastic with a shit life when I laughed at him.

        Why should I protect him? Why would you want me to?

  • Bruxie 05/07/2018 at 7:58 pm

    Evening chaps.
    Has anyone checked out the trendinf #GarethSouthgateWould tweets. Very funny indeed.

    • Freund or Foe 05/07/2018 at 8:19 pm

      I really can’t get the hang of this twitting thing. There’s so much shite, it’s hard to see the good stuff.

      • Superspoz 🏆 05/07/2018 at 8:25 pm

        You’re right FoFty. The 13-17 year olds have taken over and there’s alot of rubbish but it’s the hatred that’s getting on my nerves. Liverpool are now public enemy no.1 because of THAT infamous draw, the “Harry Kane claimed…” incident and his duel for the golden boot with Mo Salah. It’s pathetic. But there are alot of good also and depending who you “follow ” it can be fun at times.

        • 61SpursNut 05/07/2018 at 8:27 pm

    You’re penning something about an hour? Any hour in particular?

      It may be about all of hour pasts.
