Always Finding New Ways to Screw the Opponent…

Tianjin player dropped by the medics

Tianjin player dropped by the medicsIf those involved in Chinese football were as inventive in finding and promoting skilled players as they are at finding new ways to screw over the opposition, China would be in the top 10 in the FIFA rankings.  Unfortunately as we all know, that just isn’t the case…

Now the new method appears to be for the medics at the stadium to mistreat visiting team players.  It might be a little too early to call this a trend, but earlier in the season a Chinese Super League medic crew in Guangzhou hammered Guoan defender Xu Yunlong on the head with the stretcher they brought onto the pitch.

While that incident can be debated, this one cannot.  During a China League match in Changsha last weekend (May 8th), the medics appear to purposely drop a Tianjin Songjiang player as they carried him off the pitch.  The scene is almost too crazy to believe, but check out the video below for proof.  Let’s hope this will be the last such incident we see this year…

WEF is greatly honoured to have aboard B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese bloggersphere. Cheng has been the other lonely soul blogging in English about Chinese football over the last few years. With both Cheng and WEF’s editor linking back and forth to each others’ sites on a regular basis, it was probably inevitable that they would eventually join forces to try to illuminate and decipher the curious world of Chinese football, with their combined musings. Cheng’s credentials are second to none – his blog focuses not only on the fortunes of his beloved Beijing Guoan FC, but a multitude of other aspects of Beijing life. He’s deservedly built a reputation in the Chinese bloggersphere as an insightful observer of not only Chinese football, but also the wider picture of life in modern China and its many layers. Cheng very generously decided to climb aboard and give WEF his views on the issue of the Chinese footballing day.

    Sigh… Typical Chinese low ethics… So lacking in class. Improvement in football will not come until the improvement in ethics come first.
