Simple Solution - Apply Free-Market Principles and Watch China Soar.

In year one, let anybody and everybody register their own teams and then hold a national contest, starting at the city-level and advancing to provinces and finally a national "sweet 16".  In fact, this should follow the European Cup format (round robin for early rounds and then "home-and-home" for the later rounds).

Teams would be able to adjust their roster at will, but only after the completion of each round.  This would help to ensure that the better players, whose team loses in a certain round, would then have a chance to join another team.  

When you have your winning team, and the second place and third place teams as well, then the second year you repeat the entire process, but give those teams (the win/place/show of year one) an automatic bye into a "finals" tournament to be held early in year three.  

Early in year three, you would then have 3 top teams from year one, and another 3 top teams from year two.  To this mix, you would add the National Team (that program would continue), as well as a single "wild card" team chosen by the votes of the aforementioned 7 teams (their coaches).

The "Great 8" tournament  winner would automatically become China's National Team.  Yes, the current National Team gets a bye into the 3rd year finals, but if they can't win there, win their own country, then they certainly have no business representing China against others.

This new National Team would make the World Cup Finals as well as Olympic Finals.  This is what the free-market excels at: USING COMPETITION TO MAKE EVERYONE BETTER.

What do you all think about this?

... sometimes you can have a very good team - that will play second fiddle to other, better teams.  I think Pjtran touched on a very good point - a soccer program is not just one season, or three - ...


reasonable comment

Bring Up Team B

Bring in 100 Shaolin monks (the "Wu" kind), and form an alternative team.  With abstinence and dedicated training, in 5 years China can have a reasonably strong show in soccer.

It's must the fault of China Football Association!!!! I believe it ! Our U-20 team is perfect, while on the contrary,our national team is so bad, China Football Association must be responsible for  ...


right, system issue, those managers of CFA always intervene football so much but they don't know football at all...even they don't know we really need which playing style our team should do...changing coach continuously leads us lost something our team had ever...so disappointed...

Time will tell.

due to bad resuld of china national team after  2002 Korea-japan world cup. more and more fans left. and more and more athletes quit soccer field(as you know there are only 600,000 soccer member registered in china football associations.  who can got a better resuld with this low member level. Compared to tabble tennis, even in rual area, you can find many children is playing table tennis with concrete table.

when football is very popular in china, we will have a great future!
