    I think the dismissal of LGL is political, because recall that when Ma Lin, Chen Qi etc. retired, there was some kind of celebration / ceremony. How is it possible that there isn't one for LGL?

    Finally shit has hit the fan and gone public

    Roses are red violets are blue, there is always some room in the basement for me and for you !


    Love to see the interpretation of this from biased CNT fans about how the "brotherhood" cloud is all over the staff the players and the coaches

    p.s. im no conspiracy theorist dont get me wrong its just that "politics" is mostly a deciding factor everywhere, even inside the best team ever
    I suck real bad so I train to suck less

    LGL was "promoted" as the 19th vice-chairman of CTTA. Most people believe this is not a promotion but dismission.
    The new reform cancels the head coach.

    Dis mission ain't goin' nowhere.

    Of course it's actually all a subtle ITTF plot to curb China's insatiable greed for victory.

    According to sources, the CNT have been told not to talk to the media and all their phones have been switched off...

    Very sad news to be honest. Really not necessary to announce such a devastating arrangement right before the China Open and crack the spirit of the whole team. May be the KLH incident has something to do with this new and hasty arrangement. Looks like they want a reform to make a "Flat" coach team structure without Head or Main coach. Will see what will happen next. But it definitely mark the end of an Era and a strong boost to Japan. LGL we miss you...

    According to Wang Nan's husband Guo Bin, all players and coaches were asked to keep quiet before the official announcement.
    Today, cnt players and coaches chose 19:00 to express their support to LGL on weibo.
    Besides, Cai Zhenhua accepted a very short interview about LGL's leave. He said nothing and told the journalist to ask the Table Tennis and Badminton Centre.
