Chinese Super League

Emotions of the game

Football is a game of passion and emotions and last week in Chinese football we saw a lot of both. Here are some of the better pictures from the weekend…

Delirious joy
Gao Lin went mad, and so did his teammates, after his late winner secured Guangzhou Evergrande a second straight title.

The East Asia players had a chance to celebrate their league title and promotion to the CSL in front of the home fans last weekend.

Shock and anger
Jiangsu’s Eleilson was stunned when the referee gave him a second yellow and sent him off, and also had some choice words for the Guoan players.

Shanghai Shenxin came up just short against Shandong Luneng, meaning they’ll still have to fight for their survival this weekend.

See the image at the very top. Men rarely cry, and almost never do it in public, but the Henan fans were reduced to tears after seeing their club go down.

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.
