Pub Cast: Shanghai Derby Special

Hello readers listeners, we have two treats wrapped in one package for you this week – a rare Pub Cast and a Shanghai Derby special. In the pub this week are Shanghai-based contributors, Shenhua correspondent Steve Crooks , and master of SIPG coverage Andy Strong. The pair are joined by Wuhan-based China League One correspondent Jamie McIlroy, and of course, pub regular, Shanghai Ultra. On the agenda is the CSL so far – who has caught eyes? This week the ACL group stage concluded – your foursome give their thoughts. It’s the Shanghai Derby though which comes into main focus later on – Shanghai Ultra pretentiously trys to play the role of neutral Pub Cast host, Steve hopes that Guoan wins the league not SIPG, Andy Strong feels too outnumbered to live up to his name, and Jamie is smarting at having paid 750rmb for two Shanghai Derby tickets. That’s what’s on this week folks. Feedback most welcome as always in the comments below.
