But it clearly paid off, as this week they celebrated a FIFTH big home win on the bounce.

NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Last month, Guangzhou R&F took the drastic action, believing gold made for better feng shui than blue.

That is despite the fact that it is the colour of the Chinese Super League clubs strip, badge and originally its home ground too.

It followed a rotten sequence of just one home win in four months.

But since painstakingly repainting their 20,000-capacity Yuexiushan Stadium in mid-July, the team in southern China have seen their fortunes dramatically reverse.

On Wednesday they beat Fabio Capello's big-spending Jiangsu Suning 4-2 at home to climb to third in the CSL and make it four home wins on the trot, scoring 18 goals in the process.

They also beat city rivals Guangzhou Evergrande in a home cup game.

R&F coach Dragan Stojkovic told the club website: "After we changed the colour of our home stadium we got five wins and a high goal-scoring rate as well.

"I think this is what the fans want to see... beautiful offensive football."

The former Serbian international added: "The gold colour of our home stadium is pretty nice, no need to change it now."

The philosophy of feng shui - literally meaning "wind-water" - is influential in many parts of Asia.

Using the philosophy, people carefully position items in offices and homes to maximise luck and wealth.
