Rumble in London

You would think a friendly between Queen's Park Rangers and the Chinese under-23s would be, well, friendly.

Um, no.

Check this out.

Here is a little better view of the actual brawl without any further news though.

I'd have to give points to the QPR player for the initial take down, but the Chinese bench comes on strong with several mid section kicks.

All in all a draw.

Well, this did have more action than the Shaolin Soccer movie MLS was promoting a few years ago :)

Maybe this could be "Shaolin Soccer versus The Mean Machine"

A few days earlier, the Chinese were complaining about their treatment while they were training at Chelsea. Don't think the Blues beat them up or anything. Those complaints must pale compared to the way QPR treated them.

This is what it would have looked like if the mexican keeper hadn't missed Eddie Johnson.

Doesn't the miss by Sanchez speak volumes about Mexico?

And holy crap, that might have been the funniest clip I've seen in a long time. Someone on QPR has a future career ahead of them as a professional wrestler.

I don't find too much funny about a guy getting his jaw broken in 3 places. Those QPR guys look like really unsporting thugs and they seem to have been looking to provoke the Chinese into a reaction. It's very sad as far as I am concerned.
