    as mentioned by @Buggy88 and @Zhou Jiabao , Perrin has been sacked.

    should we go for the chinese coach or foreign coach? if foreign coach, should it be someone bigger name than perrin?

    Are there any good Chinese managers though that come to mind? Gao Hongbo was probably the only one. If the CFA decides to go with a foreign manager, then it should be a big name like Lippi (even though he is retired).

    Just to play devil's advocate, Jose Mourinho? He is available:p

    However I do believe China do need a manager to galvanise the squad, Lippi would obviously be my first choice but I wouldn't mind seeing Sven-Göran Eriksson or Felipe Scolari. Think about it they've got knowledge of Chinese football, culture and international experience. Particularly with Eriksson and his time dealing with the most under performing nation in England, as pointed out in these forums China is Asia's most under performing nation. If he learnt a few lessons with his time with England and utilized that knowledge for China then we've got a decent manager on our hands.

    gao hongbo is in the rumour that "he applied to manage the chinese football team".

    hypocrite chinese media now saying "oh chinese FA owe him a position, oh gao hongbo was one of the better local managers because he defeated france and south korea on friendly matches, oh gao hongbo had experience in netherlands and etc" blah blah blah.

    ffs those where are those spineless reporters from couple years back that wrote "gao hongbo only wins in friendlies, he bribed the FA to get the job, his wife works in FA so he gets preferred treatments"

    mind you, i like gao hongbo myself, but there are too many "extremes" in chinese football media.

    Way, way, way better than those two. He wasn't great but at least he did alright for China. Camacho and Perrin underperformed badly.

    rumour:

    chinese news says as of now, only gao hongbo applied for the position. no other coach did.

    italian news says chinese football associate approached fabio capello; but he rejected the job.

    in this case, Sun Ke would be the only Jia-A player.

    surprised at Xu Xin's call because he has yet to play an actual top league game.

    i think gao hongbo leaving zheng long and huang bowen out because evergrande needs them for the ACL game training.

    zheng zhi was never in gao hongbo's radar during his last tenure.

    He should be though. Zheng Zhi's still the main man for China's midfield.

    I agree. I don't get why Zheng Zhi isn't there.

    Camacho replacing Gao right before the WCQ was clearly a big mistake, but still I think Gao now is just the best among the undesirable options. Don't be surprised fans will be frustrated by him soon.

    China WNT has qualified for the Olympics with one game to spare with 3 wins and a draw, alongside Australia who has 4 wins out of 4. Impressive for both teams considering they faced Japan, North Korea, South Korea and Vietnam in the group.

    A team like China simply cannot choose players by position because we don't have the depth to do that. We have to pick the best players available, so I don't get why Huang Bowen and Zheng Long are being left off. Seriously Jiang Ning? And what on earth are Wang Tong and Jin Yangyang doing there? Those two were jokes at the recent AFC U-23 esp Wang Tong in that Qatar game.

    Although Im glad Li Ang and Hao Junmin return to the NT. I must say even if it isn't the most desirable line-up, it is definitely better than what we were seeing with Perrin lmao..
