I generally enjoy this podcast a lot. It helps me to learn a little bit more about the CSL which, being based in Hong Kong, is a league I am interested in. However, not really being able to understand the difference between the approach SIPG and Evergrande have taken, it would’ve been nice to hear a two sided debate on the matter rather than one person making a good argument and the main critic of SIPG just sulking when confronted with facts and repeating “whatever” like a teenager that knows they’re in the wrong.
Regular, informative & engaging
Couldn’t recommend this enough. Provides something for anyone, whether you’re a CSL expert or a newbie to Chinese football.
Top insights from guys who know their stuff. Keeps me up to date with the ins and outs of the weird world that is the CSL.
