    I must say, this got to be the boringest Jia A season since the start of the chinese league.

    There's no relegation. The Champion will most likely be Dalian Shide again, and no more Cup Winners Cup and Club Championship for next year.

    The only thing I guess is to qualify for the afc champions league for 2003. (if any one how this works, tell me)

    Shanghai Shenhua with all their big stars is second to last. Xu Genbao, the head coach who was suppose to bring Shanghai their second title was just canned.

    Fan Zhiyi is leaving for his European season at Dundee while Qu Bo is going to Spurs for a trial.

    No big news to report, the only thing I am hoping for is for Shanghai Shenhua to get a better coach.

    I thought it would be the Bo G division that you used to play for.

    I think the new head coach for Shanghai Shenhua is Wu Jin Gui. He is a chinese and he played professional soccer in Gremany(not bundesliga, the lower division) many years ago. I am not sure if he is a good coach. You forgot to mention that Li tie and Li Wei Feng are going to Everton next week.

    I read an article by Qingdao coach Lee Jang-Soo that C-League attendance has fallen drastically after the WC.

    I believe the Chinese football scene will bounce back again as soon as the Asian Youth Championship gets under way.

    Chinese FA is asking the British authority to include Qu's World Youth Championship matches into his cap count. Without these matches he's only around 60% - not quite the 75% required by the English FA for a non-EU player.
