It is very interesting.
That's cool. There needs to be more cross-league interaction. Especially from the bigger 3 leagues in the East (K/J League, Jia A) and the smaller leagues to the South.
how good is the chinese side sinchi?
well i suppose it's time south east asian countries realise that they don't have to look outside asia to import foreign players.
some of the australian and african players getting paid big salaries in the m-league and ordinary at best.
they should look at japanese (especially midfield playmakers) and korean players for a change who should be available for lower salaries.
I wouldn't say that the M-League targets only Australian and African players. Rather, it's whether an individual could accept the best salaries that the M-League could offer - punitive by East Asian standards - the hot & humid climate year round, and other certain 'sacrifices'. The M-League has been unable to convince any Korean or Japanese footballers to come play for their league. I would say Singapore would have more success due to their better wages and the promise of modern living . The ones who come to Malaysia do so because of the adventure of playing in an exotic climate, where most commodities are cheap and the girls are beautiful.
I'd agree that some of the foreign contingent are a complete waste of ringgit, but there are a notable few who have contributed to their teams, particularly Robbie Gaspar (Australia), Keith Gumbs (St. Kitts-Nevis), Frank Seator (Liberia), et cetara.
These guys are not world-class, but they are certainly better-than-average.
To answer Hama's question, Sinchi is sitting 7th in a table of 12 teams. Except for a notable lack of aggression, their team-play is not too bad.
