Pub Talk: Do or Die Jiangsu – the podcast returns!

An impromptu treat for the massive this week – the “pubcast” returns! With Bcheng down Shanghai way for a week and dropping in on Mr Ultra, the lads take advantage to get together and mutter away about the CSL. Not only that, the treats don’t end there – contributor and Shenhua fan Steve Crooks gets in on the action for some serious three-way discussion of various matters of incredible unimportance. On the agenda this week: all three participants barely conceal their envy that their sides are not taking part in the biggest CSL game of the season this weekend – Sainty v Guangzhou – a mouth-watering clash. The two sides’ business and football models are compared – night and day it seems. Elsewhere, there’s time to talk about some wagers, Qingdao beach, Evergrande’s ACL exit, and with two British lads in the pub there’s plenty of Viz-style arse and bum jokes about a Tianjin striker, much to Bcheng’s consternation. Listen on for the finest English language Chinese football podcast in the entire universe, and as always leave your comments and remarks below.
