I seem to remember getting a lot more new fans when Fan and Sun signed but remember reading somewhere that nothing really changed, financially or with the CPFC brand abroad.
Has it? I can't think of that many examples.

Sheff Utd did it a few years back with Hao Haidong, who was a really well known but old player in China. Don't think he actually ended up playing any games. Pretty sure Arsenal and Everton have tried it too but can't remember the details

Think we are the only other example, again in the championship. In the premier league, with the massive tv exposure, it would be huge for the club im pretty sure. The other big thing is he seems to be good enough, and in a position where we are short. (no pun intended)

It always sounds good in theory but I'm cautious to believe that it actually works. I think how much of a 'star' a player is in another country is typically overstated or overestimated. I know from watching tennis with a lot of foreign players the commentators say things like 'he/she's a massive star in their home country', 'all the people in their home country'll be glued to the tv they're so popular' and 'winning this match will make them a superstar back home'. I've heard that stuff so often but in reality when talking to people from these players' home countries they're usually not widely known at all by the general public and only well known by fans of the sport.

I do though remember with Fan and Sun Jihai seeing the odd group of chinese fans at games quite regularly so I think some support can be attracted and if a young player is successful their popularity amongst chinese supporters here and in China could snowball.

I doubt we have as well but feel we have to make this most of these premier league months. Surely the whole point of a trial is to take a good look at players such as these? Who was it at the club who was instrumental in arranging to sign fan and sun all those years ago? I think someone who may or may not be fan himself posted on the bbs once as well. Wu lei‘s manager appears to be Xu genbao, who appeared to be fans manager at one point as well.

Anyway, not going to get my hopes up as im sure we will end up with a load of journeymen on free transfers and be back in the championship before you can say ‘parachute payment‘. Anything other than that will be a bonus

Having Aki in our squad certainly helped us become more well known in Finland. It does help having a player like that in the team for your profile.

However it helps more if they actually add some quality to the squad!

more well known certainly, but any actual commercial benefits?

I just think we are a little cynical about the Asian market, in thinking that they will start spending money just because they know of a club in which one of their countrymen is playing. Would we pay to buy merch etc of a smallish Chinese club just because there is an Englishman playing for them? As above yes, it will raise our profile, but thats about as far as it would go I think.

Also find it hard to see how we would dislodge the real marketing giants in Asia, the Man Utds and Liverpools and Barcelonas. We'd never be able to compete with that on any sort of meaningful level.

I wonder how China would do in the Prem. Get their eight best players and you'd snaffle a shirt sponsorship to pay for them all (and pay compensation to the world's finest port agent). There are literally millions of billionaires in China.

The club would have to be careful about what number they allocate to him. Don't want him associated with Chow Mein, sweet & Sour or Fried Rice.

Sun Jihai played for Citeh in the Premier League. Does everyone in China now support them?

With respect to Sun Jihai, he wasn't the wayne rooney of china. Sun was a good player, but this lad is seemingly at a different level. If we want to show ambition, these are the kind of gambles that could make us fortunes in merchandising, overseas tours etc. On top of that and the most important thing, the lad can score freely and is 21.

He's got to be worth getting over for a trial. We could try him as a number 3, a number 7 or a number 9. We'd be prawn crackers not too.

What a shame that bloke on the bbs only was pretending to be Fan Zihiyi!

Would have been good if he could have put a word in for us, if it had been the real Fan!
