Beijing BaXi 1 - 2 Shanghai East Asia FC (aka Shanghai Tellace)
.....................0-1 18' Luis Carlos Cabezas Mairongo
.....................0-2 30' Luis Carlos Cabezas Mairongo
40' Xu Ning 1-2

Is that accurate? How much was it to get in? More importantly how many dancing girls were there?

Heading off in 15 mins or so and will report back. Shanghai Terrance seem to have 2 dancing supporty type girls on their webpage so hopefully they are travelling up for the big BJ v SH derby;)

Any idea what the ticket prices are..wonder if will need to spend 20 minutes haggling down from 1000RMB to 20RMB before I get one.

Cheers for confirming the location... that's in agreement with what I had dug up. Can't really blame non attendees when its nit clear where they play. I think the Baxy website has them based in Chaoyang on the opposite side of the city.


They have a page about the stadium here:
http://www.bjbaxyfc.net/info/2012/0405/47.html

Their website lists Chaoyang in relation to their women's team.

Hope your wish with the dancing girls come through. :wink:

Think I have worked it out but really wondering what to expect and whether I will be the only person there not employed by the clubs (a la the N-League) or in a crowd of 2000 (ala the SFL) or surrounded by hot dancing girls (a la my imagination)


I have not been but the crowds show some variation with as many as 16,000+ showing up for the Chongqing derby.
At the other end you have... unfortunately Beijing Baxy. Only three matches recorded crowds below 1,000 and as you may
have guessed it, all of them were Baxy's home-matches.

Have a look here (look for 北京八喜).

According to this guide, their match is at 3pm today, at the Shijingshan Stadium (石景山体育场).
Bajiao Amusement Park Station (八角游乐园站) on line 1 will be your closest subway stop.

Made it out there and back in one piece. Stadium was pretty easy to find and was accosted by some Chinese people demanding to know if I was from Shanghai at the stadium entrance... who turned out to be the people selling the tickets. 20RMB = 2 quid and included a free tub of ice-cream, can't say fairer than that. They had some Beijing Baxy t-sirts available too, should probably have bought one was was hoping to get a proper replica shirt (which seem to be unavailable). I was the only foreigner in the ground, would say about 6-700 there, but that still means there was 1 more foreigner than there was dancing girls unfortunately. People seemed a bit shocked to see me at first and obviously thought I must be an away fan so made an effort to look friendly and blend as much as a whitey in a Scotland shirt can blend at a Chinese 2nd Division game.

The game itself was pretty poor quality and was characterised by 2 footed lunges which were either so early or late they posed no threat to the player or of getting the ball, diving, feigning injury, timewasting and misplaced passes.

Highlights:

1. One of the guys from Beijing went down with what looked like an innocuous strain or pull, the physio rushed on with what looked like a tub of ice-cream, and when that inevitably failed to help the lad was stretchered off, then an ambulance came to get him at half time and whisked him away. I hope he's not the first fatality from a pulled hammy.


2. They scored, and scored again. One from a soft free kick and one from a soft headed defence. The referee booked everyone who made contact with another player but didn't book people who threw themselves in head/knee/ankle high and missed.

3. After the first goal an away supporter was obviously identified in the home section and set about by the locals. From what I could make out the Beijingers don't think much of Shanghai folks and seemed to be calling them 'Jobbies' Obviously Billy Connolly DVDs are hot property down the fake markets.

4. The lad who came on for the hamstring death victim scored with more or less his first touch. Prompting me to wonder why they had chosen to start with a Brazilian bricklayer up front instead of him. I don't know his name, but I'm guessing its Rorinho Fallonista.

5. 2nd half was a bit woeful and the main highlight was their goalscorer feigning injury and getting stretchered off by the local St Johns ambulance who promptly dragged him barely off the field and drop him from 2 feet onto the deck bouncing him out of the stretcher. I take it they weren't much impressed with him.

6. Following that it was full-time; thank God it didn't rain, Sugelan, ah Darren Fletcher, Man Utd!, bus porn, and home.

Interesting that a bunch of Beijing fans turned up sporting the green of Guoan, not sure if they go every week or whether its just a Shanghai thing but really couldn't imagine people turning up in Rangers tops to a PArtick Thistle game like that.

Its possible, but a bit far fetched compared to the obvious explanation i gave. ;)

If you'd kidded on you were Derek Riordan and you'd taken a wrong turn on your way home from Shaanxi Chan-Ba you might have blagged yourself a game. Or at least a bag of smack.

Round 7

Video highlights.
Seems like the bad weather affected some of the matches in the NE of the country.

Dalian Shide 0 - 1 Shanghai Shenhua
Henan Jianye 1 - 0 Qingdao Jonoon
Shandong Luneng 2 - 1 Guangzhou R&F

Guizhou Renhe 2 - 2 Dalian Aerbin
Shanghai Shenxin 0 - 1 Jiangsu Sainty
Liaoning Whowin 0 - 0 Beijing Guoan
Tianjin Teda 2 - 0 Hangzhou Greentown
Guangzhou Evergrande 4 - 0 Changchun Yatai

Seems teams are afraid of Guangzhou Evergrande... Changchun had only lost one match before this one but allowed Guangzhou's
forwards run circles around them.

Here a little on the Anelka coaching saga:

April 22
Anelka not in charge as Shanghai Shenhua claim win


BUT

April 23
Wild East Football

Once again, the identity of the person responsible for picking the team was unclear. Was it Tigana, who apparently is still officially Shenhua’s manager when he is not engaged in legalities with the club over his imminent departure. Was it Anelka, he who was promoted to the coaching team the other week and apparently is caretaker manager, and tweeted after the match of his “first victory as Shenhua coach?” Or was the man calling the shots the mysterious Jean-Florent Ikwange Ibenge, the former DR. Congo national team manager, who was spotted lurking on the sidelines during the game with Tigana’s translator?

The truth is that the team sheet was signed by a Shenhua backroom official since Anelka lacks the FIFA qualifications, and Ibenge can’t officially take up the management position until Tigana formally leaves Shenhua. So the dog’s dinner management situation persisted for another match, even as Anelka said during a press conference before the game that he felt the pitch was of dire quality and would impinge upon Shenhua’s game. One can’t help but wonder if Anelka could see the irony of the “cash rich” CSL not being able to splash out on maintaining decent playing surfaces.

But perhaps this explains everything:

Finding answers

Shanghai Shenhua owner Zhu Jun: March, on his blog: "I met my psychiatrist friend for two days: I learned that many people visit a psychiatrist not only for advice but to seek their inner voice, however irrational it may be." April: Sacks Jean Tigana and all his staff, appoints Nicolas Anelka.

Thanks for the warning. If I ever go back to Beijing I will probably put Baxy at the bottom of the list and will check out the other teams first.

Watched Guangzhou Evergrande's game earlier this week. Their win was a lucky one. Muriqui's goal was very lucky because even HE did not know where the ball was until it hit him.

Wonder if Derek Riordan will be heading back to China after this? At least he didn't get arrested there.

Lee Jang-soo has become the second Korean coach to depart a Chinese side this season as he's parted company with Guangzhou Evergrande the day after steering them through to the last sixteen of the AFC Champions League.
