CSL Round 30: Goals and Attendance as the Season Closes

Chengdu 2 – 2 Guangzhou, Attendance 6,000

What a difference a year makes, huh? Last year these two sides came up to the Chinese Super League, this year, Guangzhou won the title while Chengdu heads back down, they’ll have this draw to comfort them on the trip.

Hangzhou 0 – 0 Dalian, Attendance 3,000

Hangzhou says goodbye to Jiaxing with a ho hum draw, looks like they’ll be begging Wu Jinggui or somebody, anybody, to take over for the Gang of Seven.

Jiangsu 1 – 0 Nanchang, Attendance 13, 000

Jiangsu’s foreign strikeforce once again delivers a result, but the three points aren’t enough to get them in the ACL.

Shanghai 1 – 0 Beijing, Attendance 4,000

Go here for the green side’s report, and here for the blue side.

Shaanxi 2 – 2 Qingdao, Attendance 16,000

The fans in Xian did better than anywhere else in the league to come out and support their team for the final game. Qingdao doesn’t get the points they need, but it’s an impressive season for a side nobody expected much from.

Tianjin 1 – 3 Liaoning, Attendance 7,000

Liaoning puts up three on Tianjin, with Yang Xu and Yu Hanchao both getting involved in the scoring process to earn these upstarts a spot in Asia next year.

Changchun 2 – 1 Shenzhen, Attendance 6,000

Changchun finish strong, but their loss to Liaoning last week means they fall just short of the ACL spot. This team looks strong, Shen Xiangfu has turned then around and they have a good young side, with a little investment, they’ll impress next year.

Shandong 1 – 0 Henan, Attendance 11,000

Shandong cruise to three points and are on a roll and look to be favorites going into the CFA Cup.

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.
