大连一方足球俱乐部, which means "Big Dicked-Fast running, Longshoremen of Dalian"
We're literally the Chinese Leicester
I feel like all the corrupt businessmen/government officials in China figured out like three years ago that they could launder their money through transfers. How else could these teams be affording to give blank checks to all of these Brazilians?
That said, 申花万岁!
Shit man is MLS even trying? These logos are cool
>being a plastic
I support a team with REAL history!
right now there is a huge effort of business men pulling out of china, this is how they are getting the money out. huge sponsorships to non existent companies and bringing in these big players to make it look official.
How can white man fight this? kek western man btfo
Why are so many people complaining about China spending big bucks on players? The US did it before, Japan did it, India did it, Russia did it. Is it because it's China? Is it because we are actually taking good young players too? I don't understand.
apparently they had an IPO on the chinese stock market and they valued themselves at $2.6 Billion
this is all after being valued at less than $500 mil total after Alibaba invested in a 40% share back in 2014
Chinese money laundering is no fucking joke. These dudes are good at what they do.
>mfw these chinese pricks bought 7 players of the last national champ here
KeK at least yurop isn't safe too.
China loves to copy America's logo masterpieces
Nah, the BBC's Asian football correspondant basically said football clubs are a massive dick waving competition between Chinese businessmen for their town. Spending shitloads of money is as much the aim as buying good players.
>sell shirts anywhere else
>whenever Sporting buys players from Japan, India and other Eastern countries
i.e. you only mentioned the East directly to Çiporting.
You should care because Africa will develop eventually and because they would prefer some teams over others in the french league, which is the point
To be honest, I didn't even think about Africa when I made the first post.
I just think it's hilarious when Sporting when Sporting buys exotic players thinking they're Manchester United or some shit.
My own Benfica thread about Benfica? So I don't talk about Benfica here anymore? Because this is Guangzhou and not Benfica?
>all these pseudo-Spaniards
Is it because the Portu-whatever-the-fuck-liga is comparable in skill to the Chinese Super League?
Real talk, I can now name more players and teams in China than I can in Portugal. How does that feel, you greasy Moors?
back. I have the 2013 version as well (bright red to fading dark red) but can't get a pic right now.
Not sure because I got from relatives, not even sure if actually genuinely from Nike, but the cousin who procured it for me works in a lofty position with a bank so it's safe to assume it's replica Nike quality at least. If it is a fake, it was made in the same sweatshops because it's damn fucking good.
Fuck off back to /pol/ and collect your NEETbux you fucking honky hamplanet.
nice taste senpai. R I C H M O N D?
not even for their town, random teams move like all the fucking time every two to three years, though Evergrande actually has history in that they were formed and they've stayed in Guangzhou and didn't actually move from Shangdong or General smoggy city full of clones #23 or whatever. Oh and they're basically the Chelsea of everything because they got real estate money before everyone else. Which was like 5 years ago.
yeah I guess. Dad's senpai is actually closer to R&F (they have a cool-tier badge too) in the city centre but all my relations support Evergrande because R&F is an outsider.
not /gd/ enough.
Evergrande, R&F, and Renhe's old logo (they got relegated) are legit /gd/ tier badges though.
fuck shandong dog-team fuck jiangsu peices of shit guangzhou be the best forever
Elkeson, Wu Lei (like one of the few good Chinese players) Conca and Gyan is a legit great tier attack but I honestly don't know. If Elkeson can reach 28 goals in games again then maybe. Sven Goran Ericksson manages SIPG but isn't he meme tactics?
Luneng is like the eternal Arsenal of the league so maybe they might luck their way into third or something.
Tardelli still a shit.
I'm not apologizing for shit
WE DA BES
the Baghdad of the East?
I'm a poorfag with a Canadian passport and shit-tier Mandarin so there's no way I'd be allowed to travel there and I'm pretty sure foreigners are banned there. From what I've read it's like the same situation with Britbong colonies just before an uprising because they're fed up with being oppressed and cucked by the Hans.
lol Guizhou actually had a good team, they bought Misimovic a few years back and he returned there after retirement and bought Salihovic the season they went down. No fucking idea how they went full QPR, they were only like superior goal difference and one point away from staying up.
Tianjin Quanjuan for BTFOing the league.
They ban foreigners from going there or they avoid going there out of fear? Holy shit
Weren't Han soldiers like killing the muslims there?
They must have gone very JUST if they are compared to QPR. Did all the spending catch up to them or they just continue to buy shit players?
Who has the best youth academy in the CSL?
Do you watch all the matches? Must feel like Europeans during the Australian Open.
I snapped up most of the good Chinese prospects whenever I could and mainly let Diamanti do his fucken thing. Elkeson gave me some good years. Brought in Jon Williams and Keisuke Honda to lead the midfield for a solid while. Wu Lei and Huang Hongquan (is this guy real? I don't actually follow Chinese football) were beasts.
Then I blew my budget out to let Rooney piss all over the league for a laugh. Bailed on the team for West Brom and promptly ate shit.
Foreigners are literally banned. I think from the entire province.
Xinjiang is a secession risk, but it also has a very small population, so the Chinese government has been dumping in Han settlers to break the power of the natives. This results in stabbing sprees every few years by disgruntled natives, followed shortly by government crackdowns on the wider populace.
No idea, haven't played early game in a long time. Have a bonus Timo.
I knew there was a reason I wanted to make China playable again in my FM save. Too bad all their financial statuses are just "Secure" and not "Rich." I got to splooge lots of money with Shanghai Shenhua but I can't remember how much.
Probably. You have to use the editor utility (comes free with game in steam tools, inb4 >buying games), not the DLC you can pay for. Only drawback is you have to start a whole new save afterward.
I was reading about Qatari preparations for the World Cup, building all these stadiums that will remain empty after the tourney, the joke of a local league with migrant workers bussed in to make up numbers, the football academy throwing money at men such as Xavi to try and train some mediocrities (most of them not even Qatari anyways) before the WC.
It's absolutely mental, same with all these vanity projects like the 1km tall planned Saudi skyscraper or the fantasy that Dubai will be relevant once oil runs dry.
Bingo for the reason why there's unrest. Same shit happened with the Tibetans, riots ensued, was actually in China when youtube got blocked then back in 2008. It just struck me as odd why Youtube would throttle to take forever just to load something, then I found out from this non-shill Western paper that it was over Youtube hosting videos of protests.
A few travel blogs and redditors (>inb4 leddit) I've read suggests Westerners can still into Tibet and Xinjiang, but they close it off every time shit stirs in certain periods. I've never seen it even referenced in /trv/ (but that's one of the boards I don't cross over often, like once every three months)
Evergrande has literally the largest academy in the world. I'd say quantity over quality usually but it's linked to Real Madrid and several former players and coaches are placed there.
playing like shit I guess? They had a losing streak in the first half of the season, really JUSTed in the end.
I can't watch all the matches because I'm in my final year of high school doing sports and shit like quizbowl (18 trust me) and matches occur 12 hours away. So I watch highlights (there's a good channel by some guy named Wang Jinsong) and read stats like an autist and if possible still up until usually 5 AM to watch summer matches.
They want to be their own thing.
rip diamanti ;~; IRL
COME ON SEATTLE
>R&F literally stands for "rich" and "force"
cool badge though
>Not following the Bhutanese National League
Get on my level plebs.
We have a rich history and are currently top of the only league that matters have the toughest player James Vardeth who literally has never lost a fight on or off the pitch. Have fun being a plastic you little punk
