I guess the issue with how he picked his words is that the counter-argument will be focused on the president being called a clown, not the actual fact that the league is completely fucked up and our schedule is fucked. It's like giving them ammo to defend themselves.

I am surprised by the strong words but if I were Zhang I would still do not change them coz they are literally correct :lol: Dal Pino is creating a joke ("clown"), supporting the dirtiest side of Italy football ("darkest"). He is also assuming everybody else but him are stupid. Corona virus disappears 24h-48h later or Jubentini (only) being immune (?!?) Rescheduling Jube-Inter before Inter - Samp (?!?) Wtf.

Bravo Zhang :proud: pay the fine and kick their ass.

Y'all are idiots if you dont think this wasnt carefully vetted by the media team and probably some lawyers before it got sent.

Those lawyers should be fired.

I know but at least we re talking about it plus as i always say if you act like an idiot dont be surprised when people call you out on it.

Like what was the discussion before he said that? It was the same shit we ve seen forever every body calling out jube for the obvious and jube fans going like it s inters fault or we did not do anything you paranoid fucks.

If comisso and Zhang senior would find similar words the figc might wake up cause a shit ton of money is at stakes.

Oh another Brehme deus ex machina well ok then!

It's actually more of you spilling shit out of your keyboard.

What you said is completely untrue and there's no other way to say it.

You assume weird stuff about a type of people you have never even met or been around and presume that this doesn't happen elsewhere. There's a ton of idiot club owners that publicly talk shit on the internet. Some of them on a daily basis. In fact in Greece it's some kind of a hobby for this bunch of morons.

I just cannot believe I have to write a wall of text just because you believe in fairytales. I'll stop here and keep it simple, just like initially. What you said is completely untrue. End of.

Now just stop with the bullshit.

The only thing that Zhang junior will have to do with lawyers about this post is fight this bullshit he himself created. A perfext accidental diversion for juveFIGC.

In a country where image and 'face' is everything, and Zhangs have always struck me as being quite self conscious of their wealth status, especially in light of CCCP crackdowns on public displays of wealth and corruption, if you dont think these guys are very careful and considered with their media image I dont know what else to say.

Yeah you've probably got some Greek guys who dont give a fuck. My comment being a little flippant and taken to an extremity for simplicity doesnt make it less true for Zhang or people who have spent their lives curating their image.

Pshh... if you think Zhang's post is bad for a president I'd love to know the views about Trump's Tweets. :work:

It wasn't that serious. He called them out. Rushed something out with passion. Who cares if it sounds like English is not his first language.

It's not just Greeece. It happens in various places.

What H doesn't understand is that not everyone in football is a business/high profile person first. That's for Hollywood to be concerned and some top CEOs. In football the owner tends to be noisy. The lack of this in the Premier League is more of a proof as an exception than the norm. It's a soulless environment that's surrounded by business & monetary incentives, not football.

Trust me, no one told Zhang junior what to say. They could have told him to remove it but then decided against it as it already did its damage. And they may tell him to stop doing so in the future.

This is not a proof-read message, it's just someone who wants to speak up for whatever reason. Maybe he feels more sensitive or more of an authority in the situation since he's Chinese and this shit started in China. Who knows? What's for sure is that this wasn't advocated and it's one of many examples of leading football/sports making public rants, statements or whatever without having worked out the details prior to that.

And having spent time with plenty of these people during my life, I can safely say that claiming that lawyers or consultants talk to these guys and dictate what is said and what not is rarely done. And if it's done, it's going to be reactionary.


Zhang in Italy does not have anything to do with Zhang in China. In Italy he wants to appear powerful and independent. In China he's part of a hierarchy.

I'm gonna pull a brehme:

Learn to read, if you think I said anyone told Zhang what to say.



I have no doubt those are his own words. My point is that that post isn't something he's just done impulsively without talking to anyone. Those are probably his words, but I'm sure before it was posted a few people - most likely in the Inter Media Company - reviewed it and said it was fine.


What you don't understand, evidently, is basic sentence structure and comprehension.

I don’t give a fuck how he worded it, or if it doesn’t sound “president” like.
Go in Italy, and try to be politically correct, they eat you alive like hyenas. There’s nothing politically correct in that country, and sometimes you need to speak their language if you want to expose (their bullshit) and, or beat them.
I LOVE it that he called them out the way he did. Just LOVE it.
You wanna take the higher grounds with these corrupted POS’s go ahead. See what happens.
Just like here in US, it takes a Trump, to beat a Trump.

1. zhang took his mobile phone, wrote this message in one go, and hit "send". or at least that's how i figure it went, and that also accounts for all the typos.

2. i agree with every word he wrote.

To be honest, I wondered if it had been written by a member of the Curva because many of their communications are poorly constructed and go off on tangents. I also wondered whether our President struck deliberately hard in an attempt to fit in or prove himself as a black and blue.

Personally, if he is going to post online, regardless of the format, then he should take lessons from Brehme in terms of constructing a post/argument and standing his ground/maintaining his position (regardless of how upopular it may be or how badly it will be received).

Not sure what was not to like about that comment steven said it how it is.
The Lega handled this in the worst way possible ad they did actually look like clowns......

It s not like all of us were not pissed the way this got handled, so why should steve just sit by and watch?

Plus imh this came as more of a surprise to steven then it was to us i m sure he thought the system was not that rigged and fucked up.
It s good that the people who actually invested millions into italy and of which the lega also profits actually speak out on how fucked this is. Pretty sure they did not invest all that money just to get fucked over by corruption...

He could have chosen his words better no doubt about it but at the end of the day he only spoke the truth.

The main issue about the post is he singled out and insulted Dal Pino as a clown. This is the blunder of the post. He could attack FIGC as an institution that he cannot trust but once he mentions a name, then he is asking for a counter attack and he has now taken the attention towards him rather than let it be on Juventus.

The post screams amateur hour. I know Zhang is just a kid, but he's the president of one of the ten biggest football clubs in the world. You can't act that way if you want this club to be respected. You have to realize that there is an entire football federation begging you to make the slightest mistake so they can punish you. They are on their knees praying for you to do something like Zhang just did. Now he will be fined or punished, and he has no one to blame but himself. Even worse, he's being fined for making a rather weak/unexciting statement. Marotta's over the past few days have been much more damning/of a higher quality.

Completely agree. If I were him, I would have let Marotta to continue barking at the enemies (FIGC and Juventus). I would give a strong statement without any personal attack and be the good cop.
