The Chinese bubble will probably burst in ten years, but in the meantime it's a good way to get rid of all the money-grabbing cunts from our football.

Red Bull Leipzig have signed Dayot Upamecano who apparently was wanted by Real Madrid, Barcelona and Man Utd.

He joined them from...guess...Red Bull Salzburg!

I'm interested how Chinese league progresses, as they've only in last few years started teaching more kids football by a factor of many. Players like Tevez, Witzel and Oscar may be mercenaries, but the quality of signings is more young and ambitious players.

I think generally when countries have tried to grow their leagues by big name signings have been unsuccessful, US have tried several times, Russia, Middle East leagues have all had a go at raising the profile. But interest is expensive to arouse and difficult to grow and sustain. But I think there is something different about China, I don't think this will be a short term aim they will lose interest with. I think they are intent on developing domestic players and have deep enough pockets to get there.

No idea how competitive the league is, and I imagine the foreign players still stick out like sore thumbs. But I do think limiting foreign players to 3, will mean Chinese players are protected and therefore worse for it.

West Brom bid 10m for Jake Livermore in the least exciting transfer of all time
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Being a West Brom fan must be the most depressing experience in football.

Clearly money to spend, no hope of convincing a top player to join, so when you do spend 10m it's on run of the mill shot like him.

Wonder how long the Payet saga will drag.

West Ham fans will add him to their intense hate list along with Paul Ince, Frank Lampard, new stadium...

As Michael McIntyre said in his (only) joke: it'd be like taking away Josef Fritzl's "Dad of the Year" mug. :)
