He's moved on so fast.  :(

I was hoping he'd say something all soppy and gushy about how nice we are.

Probably secretly p*ssed we didn't do enough to try and force Ashley out.

he'll have them the league before he f***s off
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Nah, Evergrande and Shanghai are too strong.  He'll get them into an Arsenal type situation, good team but a bit below the big boys.

Wouldn't be surprised to see them in the Champions League under him at some point but I can't see them winning the league.

They’ve started too far behind for him to win it this season they’ve looked fantastic in his first 2 games though :love:

Next season I wouldn’t put it past him.

Carrasco and Hamsik were incredible in their last match.

no idea in the disparity in quality of chinese player but if they let him do what he wants i wouldn't back against him getting it in the next few years tbph, he's a fucksite better than any other manager out there simply by virtue of existing

This is like some sort of sick nightmare, man.

I just want to wake up.

 :lol:

Potentially one of the most overdramatic things I've read.

I'm not sure i want to live anymore tbh, this is too much.

It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

 :p

Evergrande is my team here, this is their recent record:

CSL    Winner    7x    
2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011
Runner-up    2x    2018, 1994

China League One    Winner    1x    2010

FA Cup    Winner    2x    2016, 2012
Runner-up    1x    2013

Super Cup    Winner    3x    2018, 2017, 2016
Runner-up    3x    2015, 2014, 2013

Club International
AFC Champions League    Winner    2x    2015, 2013


Between us, Guoan and Shanghai it's going to be incredibly hard to even make the CL spot for any other teams.  In a season or two with decent investment Rafa might be able to get them there but right now he's essentially up against three Man Citys in footballing terms.

Aye, the best Chinese players and a few Brazilians and an English fella mixed in.  If you're looking for names you'll recognise have a look at Shanghai, they've got Hulk and Oscar playing for them.

You might know Cannavaro, like......
