BEIJING GUOAN 2012 PHOTO RECAP 3: On the Road

In Beijing,away trips are referred to as “long marches” amongst the fans and this year Beijing fans made their presence known marching across the country. I had the pleasure to attend a number of these trips, by bus, by car, and by train heading north, east, and south. I’ve not been good in taking pictures on away trips because more so than at home, on the road its about having your voice heard, so the photos are few and far between, but here are some shots taken across the country this season, with more than a few coming on that night in Zhengzhou.

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.
