I could have made him fit by also mentioning the team whose star player is Jelavic

Tevez, now there's a lying shite of a player. Complains of homesickness in England ... moves to Italy ... complains again and Juve write off money to release him back to Boca ... where he claimed he'd retire and then he promptly fucks off to China. Duplicitous money grabbing gimp.

That picture is so cringe it's un-real. There's a part of me that really hopes there's a national gas-leak over there so that the Super League collapses, it's just a total shambles from top to bottom. 

I agree with you on Tevez too, it's quite remarkable how he's held in high regard by some people despite being a massive bellend. Switched from the red half of Manchester to blue before moaning his way through Juventus, Boca and Shanghai. A great footballer without a doubt but a real con-artist at the same time.

The Chinese super league looks a bit like the old NASL, players past their prime collecting a tasty pay check

Most exciting thing that could happen here would be Hulk transforming.

This is becoming an enjoyable watch, not for the football but because Shanghai are losing the plot.

Pato just blasted a penalty over the bar in the last minute and cost his side the chance to win the game.

Looks like an alien invasion is happening or maybe thats how they get a new stadium built. Saves money on demolition costs.

I wonder how many of these players won't be payed. I know how the Chinese operate in business and they will do everything in their power to screw the other party(s) out of money.  A contract isn't worth the paper it's printed on in China. They manipulate, twist, turn, and force people into corners they can't escape from. A con-artists paradise. It doesn't matter what you do because screwing over someone in a contract isn't even a criminal offence.

"50 years behind compared to European football.” - Tevez

b0037c4c-04a5-11e7-be53-dd0689cdbd13_128

This summer, Carlos Tevez has become the highest paid player in the world, but Shanghai's Shahua Pharaoh's salary does not seem to be enough for Apache, who in an interview with Spanish Superliga Movistar snubs the league, "This championship can not compete with any of the big European tournaments, even if they have the best players in the world, there is a distance of 50 years. Here technically the players are not very good and they are not very physical. They are also very naïve, so they kick at you and hurt you. And then football is very different and people also live it differently."

 Unhappy with the decision to go to China? Not really, Apache says "With my family we are happy, even if I have not set myself completely, I think I can do it slowly."

What was he expecting

Former England manager Fabio Capello is the latest high-profile coach to move to the Chinese Super League, signing a contract with Jiangsu Suning.

The 70-year-old, who led England for four years before resigning in 2012, joins former Premier League managers Luis Felipe Scolari, Andre Villas-Boas, Gus Poyet and Felix Magath in China.

Former Chelsea manager Scolari coaches current champions Guangzhou Evergrande.

Capello's fellow Italian Marcello Lippi is in charge of China's national team.

A Jiangsu statement confirmed: "We have signed a working contract with Mr Fabio Capello. He will be the head coach. Welcome Fabio!"

Capello made his name at AC Milan in the 1990s, winning four Serie A titles and the Champions League. He went on to win two La Liga titles in separate spells with Real Madrid and another Italian league crown with Roma.

He also won Serie A twice with Juventus but both were revoked and they were demoted to the second division for their involvement in Italy's match-fixing scandal.

England reached the last 16 of the 2010 World Cup under Capello, losing to Germany, and he resigned two years later after a disagreement over the stripping of the captaincy from John Terry.

He went on to spend three years as Russia coach before being sacked.

Never really got the Postman Pat reference, looks a bit like him but nothing more. 

As for the appointment it doesn't really surprise me, the Chinese Super League and Fabio Capello seem made for each other.

Postman Pat was my favourite show as a kid... so I thought this was some kind of like weird sponsorship or something.

Turns out I'm just an idiot and they've appointed Fabio Capello. Going on his Wikipedia page is quite amusing... because he's a fucking legendary manager, then he takes over England and goes to total shite. Considering that this is a club team, and while I'm sure he doesn't know a whole lot about Chinese football, he might actually do well again after his shite stints at Russia and England. Seems like international football and his management style aren't a great mix... or England and Russia have fucking stupid players. Either one of those seems likely to me.

100% tax for Chinese clubs to curb extravagant spending

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40325496

Chinese Super League clubs face a 100% tax on signings as their mid-season transfer window opens on Monday.

The country's Football Association (CFA) is proposing the measure for loss-making clubs in order to try to curb the league's extravagant spending.

Chinese clubs spent £331m during the country's winter transfer window, which was more than their English Premier League counterparts in January.

The proceeds from the tax would go into a government-run fund.

If enforced, the measure would in effect double the fee for any player.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and Chelsea striker Diego Costa are among the high-profile players to be linked with the Chinese Super League (CSL), with the transfer window open until 14 July.

In the last transfer window, Shanghai SIPG bought Brazil international Oscar for £60m from Chelsea, while Shanghai Shenhua spent £40m on Carlos Tevez. The Argentina striker signed a deal worth a reported £310,000 a week.

At the time, a spokesperson for China's General Administration of Sport said clubs in the country were "burning money".

Limits on the number foreign players in squads were put in place for the current season, which runs from March to November. Only three non-Chinese players can now be fielded in a fixture in a move the CFA hoped would tackle "irrational" spending.

Costa was a target for Tianjin Quanjian but the club's owner, Shu Yuhui, said in January that a bid to sign the forward had been scuppered by new CSL rules limiting the number of foreign players.

In each game next year, clubs will also have to field as many Chinese under-23 players as overseas players.
