Happy Communist Party Day!  Did you sing your red songs today?
I’ve run into this guy all over the country, typically at national team games, but he was in the crowd for Liaoning’s match against Changchun this past weekend.

crazy foreigner at ChengduWhy is this foreigner at Saturday’s Chengdu v Henan game so angry? His ayi screwed up his laundry? His “la meizi” Sichuan girlfriend dumped him? He actually just hates football?  I hope he’s actually a real fan instead of just a foreign tool being a monkey for the local fans and media (the sign he’s holding says “shame”).

Troussier stuck in the rain“It’s really raining on my parade”
Sorry, I couldn’t resist, but Troussier has to be asking himself why he bothered coming to Shenzhen, or at least where his rain jacket may be.

Hangzhou player on Cleo's backAt the rate Cleo’s scoring goals, everyone wants to get close to him.

Despite Billy Hoyle, white men really can jump!

Brandon Chemers aka B. Cheng aka A Modern Lei Feng – is a name which may be familiar to many in the Chinese blogosphere. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief for Wild East Football and is one of the lonely souls writing about Chinese football in English for the last 10 years. Chemers' credentials are second to none – his former blog focused 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 blogosphere as an insightful observer of not only Chinese football, but also the wider picture of life in modern China and its many layers. For WEF, beyond writing about Guoan, he often focuses on fan culture and the business of Chinese football.
