Sun was a starter as Man City beat Tranmere Rovers 7-1.
Qu Bo really showed he's could be a force to be reckoned with in the future.
And the fact that he'll be with Tottenham, pretty much guarantees that he'll get good playing time because, as someone mentioned, most of the FW's & ST's are old guys!
BTW, in Cantonese Qu Bo's name is pronouned "Cook Boh"
but in english I'm think it's "Coo Boh"
heh heh Coo eh?
hey dude I'm also in Toronto. Are you originally from Hong Kong?
Kirovski is probably the most skilled US player. His problem is lacking of consistency that is the result of not playing enough games. After he lost Work Permit fight, he was signed by Dortmund after his 1996 Olympic showing. He did win CL cup and Toyota Cup (10 minutes play in the end) and was sold to Sunderland. Then his work permit request failed again. He also not helped by the position--attacking midfielder who is behind two strikers. No club especially a CL winner will play a 20 years old kid in there. So he was pushed to the wing, but his speed and defense not fit him in that position. Then he moved to Sporting Lisbon and still cannot get the PT. Finally, he married someone in Portugal to get an EU possport. Then he was able to play as an attacking midfielder for Crystal Palace and lead the team to #1 rank in 1st division until his coach left for Birmham City. His new coach doesn't like him so that went with his playing time and his chance to go to World Cup. With all those waste years, he is behind Reyna, O'Brien, Donovan and Mathis on depth chart in center midfield. Look he finally get into EPL at the age of 26. Wish him a good luck.
In contrast, Qu Bo has a better chance then Kirovski. First, Spurs may use his U-20 PT to get work permit. Secondly, Qu Bo is fast enough to play at the wing, and also the fast pacy game may help him in a sub role. He may need to improve his defense if he plays at the wing. But for any young players, wing in the midfield is almost a starting point. You just cannot get the trust to run a team in the center midfield when you are too young.
So Qu Bo can be a sub in the slashing forward position or even a starter in the right wing.
Sun Jihai and Qu Bo
Keegan praises Sun JiHai
Hoddle wants to arrange 12 months loan deal for Qu Bo
nope, not from HK. But I'm Chinese and I was born here. Are you Chinese?
i thought you are forza's sock puppet
It looks like Qu is one step closer to the EPL. Let's see if Spurs can get his work permit done.
Bo Qu will soon have beaucoup d'argent.
As I understand it, Kirovski was rejected in the mid-90s, before the Home Office started relaxing the work permit requirements, so his case is not particularly relevant to Qu Bo's.
Ok, lets get serious -- what are the tones for this name, and can anyone provide a link to something showing the name in hanzi?
OK, by watching the China games on Fairchild, I have learned to pronounce it "Cook Boh" in Cantonese, BUT in Engrish according to ESPN (I think) it is pronounced "Coo" (or Khoo) "Boh" (or Bo)
And if my Mandarin hasn't failed me I'm fairly sure it's pronounced "Chwee" ("Ch" and "wee" together quickly") "Boh"
Qu Bo signs with Spurs
Thanks, but assuming that "Qu Bo" is a standard pinyin transliteration I know how to make the sounds. What I'm asking for is the tone (i.e. 1st through 4th) for pronouncing the standard mandarin of the name, and a link to the characters.
It's ‹È ”g, Qu3 Bo1. Oh well, the characters didn't come through, but you can go here:
xie4xie4 nin2. Link isn't working right now, but I'll try later. I tweaked my encoding and got your characters, or at least some characters -- they didn't say Qu Bo, though. That's life with Chinese on an American Windoze system.
The o in Bo is a very difficult sound to define using English, almost like the wa sound in wall with a softer a.
I think this is the most educational thread at BigSoccer, ever. Thanks guys.
LOL Crappy Chinese 101
Now if someone was able to record pronounciations
Now I understand why Qu named himself Kevin. It certainly makes his life a little bit easier.
so what's the name on his shirt?
Yep it's Qu3 Bo1.....The first 2 characters in the title of this article are the words Qu Bo:
Don't listen to the English commentators for the Chinese names. They know sh!t about Chinese pronounciations.
And no it's not "Chwee"...you're completely wrong on that one.
Shows how hard it is to learn Chinese, doesn't it?
