Few British people have as deep an understanding of and passion for China as Rowan Simons, who moved to Beijing in the late 1980s and has lived there ever since. He has enough in his media businesses to keep him busy – the group consists of three companies, and does everything from media production to strategic consulting, from event organising to communications – but one thing has given him a sense of mission.“Football has always been my passion,” says Simons in a phone interview conducted with radio86.com just before he ran out of the door for a training session. “I started playing as soon as I came to China, but I realised very quickly that football in China was very different from football in the UK, and elsewhere. In the mid-90s I was lucky enough to be a co-commentator on English Premier League and FA Cup matches on Bejing TV, so I became very well known to football fans as the English guy who talked about football.” (more…)
|Hey Guys,First off a big thanks to all those that made it out on Sunday for our friendly against the French, twas good to gage the fitness of all concerned..and clearly our World Cup hangover has yet to clear away. But no worries, with training and the 5 aside league having started we all have the chance to get back to our best levels of fitness to once again fight for top spot in both divisions…if you’ve recently visited our websites www.forbiddencityfc.com & http://www.webteams.co.uk/Home.aspx?team=forbiddencity you would have hopefully noticed the new and improved look and recent updates. Cheers Pikey. Remember to keep visiting them to keep in touch with your teams latest stats and news.Finally a quick reminder to all that both Palace and City will be involved this coming weekend: Palace get an early start to the season with the Cup 1st round (Patrick will be in touch) and City meet the French once again on Sunday 2pm Lido for our last pre-season friendly (more details later this week).See you in training this eveningCheers,Philippe

FCFC-TV presents another episode of fun football in Beijing. Watch the mighty City take on the Azzurris in front of record attendance as the weather warms up. “Most fans that ever came to City match”, said football pundit Matthew D. OnkyThe going wide pays off. Sheff is on camera with more than two shots on goal and leaping ahead in the ‘who’s the best left winger’ competition, much to Blaine’s dismay. Blaine’s still got the looks though.Getting bored with all his vacation time after selling loads of electronics to friends, Alex is auditioning for a Hollywood career, giving a Florence Nightingale impression.When Philippe is not not chasing the ball he is running circles around Azz players (“every fucking time”). You better leave the ball for him.‘Google Me’ is coming on in the second half, though unfortunately the camera missed his coming off. The camera didn’t miss someone else’s walk of shame though, but not today and here.And what is Ferry doing?All in all, captured 5 out of 7 goals and about 20 shots on goal. Not too bad.
