Hey i just realised that the core of the Chinese NT hasn't really changed at all since 1997. I just saw the lineup of china back in 97 in a world cup qualifier against Qatar which we lost 3-2 and it is amazingly similar to the current lineup. Guys like Fan Zhiyi, Ma Mingyu, Sun Jihai, Li Tie, Zhang Enhua, Li Ming, Hao Haidong, Jiang Jin, Wu Chengying. No wander we sucked. We have the same team we had five years ago. Compare this to the Korean team 5 years ago  SEO Dong Myung  HONG Myung-bo  HA Seok Ju [ 5] LEE Min-sung [ 4] CHOI Young Il  LEE Ki Hyung  CHOI Yong Su  KIM Tae-young  LEE Sang Yoon  KIM Do Hoon  SEO Jung Won Such a different team. No wonder we always lose because we don't bring up enough youg players.
