Although the Chinese Super League in the 2020 season will be conducted in the form of a game system and almost empty games, this does not affect the overall structure of the league in recent years:
Guangzhou Evergrande, Shanghai SIPG and Beijing Guoan are still the top three clubs, while Shandong Luneng and Jiangsu Suning are in the second echelon. To
As for the most impressive topic in the Super League this season, the controversy caused by the referee is definitely ranked first. As for the local players expected by the outside world, it can only be said that although there are occasional bright spots, they still lack continuous performance.
How to ensure fairness in the knockout?
From the initial Fu Ming's enforcement of Shenhua and Dalian’s controversial penalty kicks, to the subsequent Ma Ning’s disregard for the goalkeeper’s apparent advancement in the process of saving penalties in Chongqing and Teda, until Zhang Lei’s focus on SIPG and Guoan. The discrepancies in the scale of the penalties in several times... the refereeing problem finally detonated the Chinese football public opinion.
During this period, not counting the obvious mistakes of Shi Zhenlu, Ma Li, and Gu Chunhan, the referee's penalty can be said to have caused public outrage.
You have to know that Ma Ning, Fu Ming and Zhang Lei are already representatives of the highest level referees in the Super League. If they all have obvious misjudgments in the game, what is the current level of the Chinese referee?
In order to calm the disputes about referees from the outside world, the relevant person in charge of the Disarmament Commission previously mentioned in an interview with Xinhua News Agency that although the overall level of Chinese referees still needs to be improved, there are also individual referees who have previously played in AFC games. The good performance has entered the field of view of the AFC.
"According to the referee scoring system of the AFC, a Chinese referee has the opportunity to pass the selection of the AFC and whistles for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. There is also a referee who hopes to serve as a VAR referee."
"The referee team has always been focused on by the discipline departments of the State Sports General Administration and the Chinese Football Association. After strict review by relevant higher-level departments, our referees may still need to improve on the professional level, but the ideological level is reliable."
The question is, after experiencing a desperate performance in the first stage, how can the referee perform convincingly in the second stage?
During this period of time, the industry has been calling for the re-opening of foreign sentries in the second stage. However, according to The Paper's understanding, considering the actual situation such as epidemic prevention, unless it is a last resort, the second stage of the championship and relegation teams will still be eliminated Local referees come to enforce the law.
Wei Shihao was injured, what a pity
After 14 games in the first stage, Bakambu and Malcom, who scored 11 goals, tied for the top scorer list. The top nine scorers (at least 7 goals) in the scorer list were controlled by foreign aid. Wei Shihao and Gao Lin scored 6 respectively. The ball and 5 goals are the only two local players who can score more than 5 goals.
Of course, Wei Shihao might have occupied the top spot on the scorer list.
In the fifth round of the league, Wei Shihao, who came off the bench, scored two goals to help Evergrande beat Jianye 3-1. At that time, Wei Shihao had already handed over the excellent data of 6 goals in the first 5 rounds. However, because of muscle strain, Wei Shihao never failed. Entered the competition list,
Otherwise, with Wei Shihao averaging more than 1.2 goals per game, I am afraid that the number of goals in 14 games may exceed 15 goals.
Since Wu Lei brought the Chinese Super League champion and top scorer to overseas, the outside world has been looking forward to the next local player who can stand alone in the Chinese Super League, and Wei Shihao has definitely played his worth.
From the beginning of the 2019 season, with the help of Cannavaro, Wei Shihao has gradually felt like the first person in the country, but the accidental injury this season has interrupted his upward channel. Gao Lin and Rong Hao, the two former Evergrande players, also have a second spring in scoring data this season; SIPG’s midfielder Wang Shenchao once made good contributions to goals and assists; In recent games, Bi Jinhao, who switched to playing forward, helped Shenhua win the last ticket to advance to the top eight with four goals...
Yes, it feels somewhat fragmented, and besides, these are all old faces, not too new.
The overall performance of the newcomers can only be said that there are not many bright spots. Hu Jinghang scored 3 goals and created the season with the most goals in the Super League, while Luneng teenager Guo Tianyu has shown obvious improvement this season.
Chinese football has always been looking forward to the emergence of outstanding local forwards. Guo Tianyu has potential, but for the position of center forward, there is too much uncertainty to compete with excellent foreign guns.
TEDA, can you exploit the loopholes in the game system?
In the first stage of the league, the most disappointing team was Tianjin TEDA. Of the 16 teams, only TEDA didn't win a game, and even only had three matches in the draw, and lost 11 games.
During , TEDA suffered an eight-game losing streak, tying the longest losing streak in the top league.
——Thanks to the tie with Yongchang who lacked Muric, this did not have the longest losing streak alone.
In fact, after confirming that they missed the top four, teams like Jianye and Huanghai also consciously stored their energy for the second stage and made certain reservations for the lineup in the last few games, but no team like TEDA I didn't win that game.
As early as the league determined the grouping system plus the championship relegation group play-off system, the outside world questioned whether there are loopholes in such a system——
There is a team that can lose in the first stage without scoring a goal, and then in the first round of the second stage of the elimination round, it depends on two 0-0s plus a penalty shoot-out to win. In the whole year, a goal is not scored and a game is not won. Under the circumstances to achieve relegation.
Of course, this description is a bit exaggerated, but how can TEDA's performance be so strong? TEDA is a professional relegation player in the league over the years. With rich relegation experience, can they beat Shenzhen in the first round of the relegation group?
In the eyes of several Tianjin local media people, TEDA is really dangerous now-after all, the first stage is so bad, it will inevitably cause dissatisfaction. You must know that if you normally play in the Super League, a team with only 3 points in 14 games will not be able to relegation. of.
This year's competition system is special. It is very difficult to be absolutely fair, but I definitely don't want any team to take advantage of possible loopholes in the rules to successfully achieve relegation.
TEDA is already saving itself. They have signed Lima, Ahmedov and Porto striker Soares. At least with foreign aid, TEDA has not lost to Shenzhen. Next, it depends on whether the rich experience in relegation works.
