(English Translation Follows)
足球和中国的股市，是两个靠自由竞争的事情，我们在这两件极其重要的环节上一和真实的世界比起来得到的是不堪忍受的结果。它们都是扶不起来的天子。股市靠自由买卖，足球靠无情的自由竞争，它们暴露出在市场自由经济领域内，我们的管理最薄弱的问题。军之行不行，全靠将帅带。自由竞争的领域，要靠市场的管理方法操作。我们开国的十大元帅和十位大将是怎么产生的? 还不是靠无情的战争，弱者淘汰，强者胜出而产生。战争环境下，几个战斗打不赢，就得换将，保持长胜将军领兵，哪容得下铁饭碗。对有关官员管理能力低下的软弱，就无异于对贪腐的容忍，就是对我们事业的残酷。市场自由经济最客观考验我们的管理能力，得凭市场客观标准而不是自我吹嘘来检验，或不决不允许找借口抹杀客观标准。中国足球队如具有那纯朴勇猛的精神，真的认真踢比赛，怎么也应差不多如日韩水平。从技术讲，中国队守不能全力以赴，固若金汤；防守反击时又不能勇猛快速。守不像守，进攻不像进攻。像冰岛和瑞典那样技术粗糙的队伍，但凭勇猛顽强的搏斗意志打入世界杯外围赛，取得不错的成绩。 克罗地亚队以长传冲掉，撕开对方在球门区前的密集防守，而个人技术再好也难以冲破对方的密集防守。几十次冲掉有一次能成功，就足够了。这不可谓不是成功的战术。
Talking Freely About the World Cup
Why do the world people like football very much? Many presidents have been attracted from different countries to watch and cheer for their team’s matches. Because football matches reflect the primitive, brave with a little bit human’s barbaric nature and exhibit only human’s physical and will competition. These have made people think of the gladiatorial games in ancient Rome. But football is not so bloody, but has kept the primitive, ancient and brave characteristics. It is the physical and will competition of collective cooperation with individual technology, which represents the physical strength of a country as a whole with ancient characteristics. Do not say that the competition itself has no scientific and technological contents at all, even the hands that human most developed in evolution are not allowed to use. Because of it, football have preserved the most rustic and primitive characteristics of human beings. People in this developed technology world still do not forget the original intention of their rustic and brave spirit.
Chinese football rightly lacks the rustic and brave spirit, do not only lacks physical strength and technology. Compared with China, there are many richer or poorer countries which have achieved good results, so there is no certain connection between football level and money. The most coaches of the successful national teams are the coaches of their own countries. We think it is because the only coaches of their own countries are better to know how to motivate players’ courage and wills which are particularly important in football matches. Of course, it does not negate individual skills and the coordination of teamwork. Only the coaches and the players share the same hardships and sweetness, can the players' fighting spirit be inspired. To engage a foreign coach at extremely high cost only has to have a negative effective in the players' minds on the contrary. They just don't want to express that minds. It is very easy to lead to a crooked road if you want to success over urgently.
Football and the Chinese stock market are two most important things that are freely going on. And we can only get unbearable results in the two when competing with the real world. They are all the son of heaven who can't stand up after a lot of help. The stock market depends on free trades, football relies on merciless free competition. They expose our weakest managements in the free competitions. The army that is able to win or not all depends on the general to lead. The field of free competition is managed only by the ways of marketable management. How did the ten marshals and the ten generals for establishment of our government come into being? They were produced possibly only to eliminate the weak and leave only strong ones in the large number of merciless battles. Under the circumstances of wars, if failing to win in several battles, the commanders must be changed so that only strong ones could lead troops for battles. How can unbreakable bowls (jobs) be tolerated? The tolerance of the officers' weak ability to manage works is nothing less than the tolerance of corruption and the cruelty of our cause. Our management ability is the most objectively tested in market free economy by the objective criteria of the market rather than self-boasting to judge, or find excuses to kill objective standards. If the Chinese football team has such a simple and brave spirit and have played seriously, whatever it should play football to the levels like Japan and South Korea. In terms of technology, the Chinese team is not able to go all out in defense like unbreakable stronghold. And in counter attacks, it is not brave and fast enough. Iceland and Sweden teams with such a rough technics, however depended on their brave and stubborn wills, they all entered the matches of world cup and got good results. Croatia used long balls in upfield and tore away the opponent's intensive defense in front of the goal area which it would be difficult to break through despite how good the personal skill is. One success in dozens of times of long balls to try to breaks through would be enough. We have to say this is successful tactics.
We felt very sorry that we rathe lost a lot of good teams and good players as result of only one match. The higher the rounds of competitions are, the more meticulously they should be, but the reality is just opposite, the rules are to be rougher. We mean it is even fair to re-organize all winners of the rounds of 16,8 and 4 to one or two groups to play round match. And now it is extremely unfair for the current rules at this high stage of matches to determine winner or loser by one match only because one match quite often has a big occasionality. Put enjoyment of spectators aside, the more important thing is that good terms and players are often eliminated by chance. How many 4 years do athletes have? Age has no mercy to anyone. Excellent players have to wait miserably for next world cup tournament 4 years later. And therefore, we should give them more opportunities to display their talents and skills while they are young and in matches at each high round. It is also ridicules that the terms’ fates are determined only by one match, and even more absurd if the match is draw, it will determine teams’ fate by cruel penalty which has great occasionality. Having known the penalty kick is cruel but not tried to avoid cruelty. It is absolutely absurd. Cruelty means no any sense of reason to follow or tortures. Are we willing to rule without a sense of reason? Some people may say, what we look at is just this cruelty. But this foolish way should not be a method of fate decision in twenty-first Century. The world cup tournament itself should be kept the competition’s primitiveness, but it does not mean the rule is also primitive, and it should keep up with the pace of technological progress. Our football world competitions cannot rely on cruel occasionality. What harms if there are more matches? This allows the spectators to enjoy more wonderful performances, and the team members can fully display their talents while they are young. If the world cup tournaments at whatever round can all play in groups, they will make the all results more fair and the present unpassionate competitions between 3rd and 4th to be much more passionate because the final lists have to be decided at same time and it automatically decides the 3rd and 4th, but the final match is needed. The more chance, the more we can decide who is really worth title of champion. Penalty kick is not much different from coin toss. We should avoid this occasionality as much as possible and both sides can fully display their talents, which is inevitability we rely.
In addition, referring to the rules for ice hockey match, when the football players in matches violate the rules more seriously (which can't be omitted in the eyes of the VAR), warning of a red card should be given and will be punished for 10-15 minutes off the current match. After 10-15 minutes for the penalty, the player punished is allowed to re-join the current match. So that the referee can have more means and more strictly maintain the rules of the game. Punishment for temporary off-game is a severe enough, but it will not hurt the punished team too much.
When I remember I took part in the middle school team and led our troops teams and the student's teams of the air force school in my young time, though they were amateur, I feel a little proud for the football matches I ever joined personally. These experiences made me to cheer for the world cup and boost the arrival of Chinese football spring more sincerely.
