Unrest in Jiangsu and what fans want: s3e27

With fan protests escalating in Nanjing, the pod takes a deep-dive into the story to understand more. What are the key issues and why has the club's response left fans cold? Is it as simple as ownership getting distracted by their Italian club, or are there more cultural factors at play? After looking at the Jiangsu situation from the inside and outside, we move on to a broader discussion of fan expectations and satisfaction levels - and why fan protests are an impressive phenomenon given the cultural landscape they sit in. Host Steve Crooks is joined by Chinese football experts Cameron Wilson in Shanghai and Brandon Chemers in Beijing along with a special guest for this week's episode - Sun Ning bringing us a Jiangsu fan voice.
