    Nah, I think this Coleman has something against our poor Ina. He's still a bench warmer after Saha left. Surely he thinks that Ina is no better than Davis or Legwinski.

    Yeah, I read his message, and it worries me.

    He usually writes a post-game analysis to let us know what went wrong and what should be done. Now he seems to be so confused and upset, and doesn't know what to do for the national team.

    I don't blame him for being far from his best form, but I still have a hard time beliving that our national team, Japan's best of the best, had trouble beating Singapore, yet Albirex Niigata's reserve team (?) are leading S-League... What the hell is going on???

    As he is asking himself, "Did we truly make a progress in the past two years?"

    The only good thing in this game IMO was Majulah Singapura, which is one of my favorite national anthems.

    unbelievable debut performance by kazu matsui!! homered to center his first at bat and first pitch of the game in the 1st inning. doubled twice later and intentionally walked. he went 3-for-3 with 3 rbis.

    Shinjo is now a Nippon Ham Fighter.

    shinjo is the man. wherever he goes, whatever the language he speaks, he is the man.

    i hope kazu matsui to be the first japanese player ever to do something extraordinally for the mets. the mets have had the most number of japanese players in mlb so far but none of them really did like ichiro, nomo, sasaki, or hasegawa. maybe yoshii in some extent and shinjo in very limited period but really none of them are star caliber for the team. nomo was at his worst shape, kashiwada was by no means a top-notch, komiyama already passed his prime when he joined.

    i'm not sure if he was a good gay porn actor, but he is good as a pitcher. ohka did phenomenal performance in the minor but tadano, i believe, was even better. it's good to see those who don't have much or any experience at all in japan do good in the mlb. sure it's not good for the japan league though.

    ichiro 0-for-4
    taguchi 0-for-4 and 1 error
    k matsui 0-for-5
    h matsui 0-for-4
    hasegawa 1 inning 4 ers blew the save opportunity and mariners lost 1-5
    ohka 5 inning 3ers and the expos lost 0-3

    horrible horrible day for the japanese major leaguers.

    Another Japanese soccer player abroad, though not professional... Akihiro Kadotani has committed to the University of Maryland after playing for DC United's youth teams for three years. He currently has only Japanese citizenship.

    i'm telling you again, the dutch league is a joke. they only have 3 good teams and these teams are no longer as good as they used to be. the rest of them are worse than j2.

    only a few years ago when ono joined feyenoord and won the uefa cup they had real world class talents such as jon dahl tommason, van hooijdonk, and shinji himself but now they only have shinji. look at psv and ajax. they too became so weak compared to what they used to be in a couple of years ago.

    i love toda's this phrase. "i must be a real crap if i cannot start for this crap team"

    shinji, GET OUT OF THE DUTCH LEAGUE!!

    what is this? Seems like japan won the final.

    Hey be careful, I live in W. Mass. Matsui or no Matsui, Yankees are the EVIL EMPIRE in the RED SOX NATION. Beside, I was always a fan of SEIBU LIONS when I lived in Japan. Never liked the Yomiuri Giants and Matsui. I gotta admit that he is damn good player though.

    Re: J-League thread [R]

    Italian Serie A side Sampdoria will be releasing on-loan Japan international striker Atsushi Yanagisawa at the end of this season, a local newspaper report said Tuesday.

    "It was important to sign Yanagisawa to raise Sampdoria's profile in Asia but I think his experience here with us is over," Genoa daily Il Secolo XIX quoted Sampdoria general manager Giuseppe Marotta as saying. "We weren't expecting miracles. But he kept on getting called up for national team duty and because of that we were unable to see him at the top of his game."

    haha, thats the polite way to say he sucks.

    Re: J-League thread [R]

    yanagisawa has been one of our best. it is all serie a's fault for providing him such a low quality football environment: low level of play in the league, putting him on bench for no reason, and nobody speaking japanese. only a real talent like nakata can survive under such a sick place for long period. had nakata played in japan, he should have been the best player in the world already. yanagisawa will rock again once he's back to kashima. it's about time to stop sending our quality j-leaguers to europe. it'll just spoil their true talents. too much risk for no reward. we can only send our 2nd tier like suzuki, fujita, and toda to europe. oh where's maezono now? send him to france or somewhere and he'll soon be the best over there.

    It seems like Gamba is asking too much for Ina. At the right price, he should be a contributor in a top European league, and it would be a shame to see him come back to the J.

    - In other words "How did this guy ever become a professional? And how come no one bought any of his jerseys?

    Yeah I agree, the we weren't expecting miracles part made me laugh, cause everytime Yanagisaw scores its a miracle.

    Re: Official Japanese Abroad Thread [R]

    yanagisawa had been scoring almost in every game for the national team when given a chance. seen his goal against italy?? but now look at what serie a taught him. now he forgot how to shoot. he cannot be nothing but a post-play guy. it's all about the quality of italian football. i assure you yanagisawa will be one of our best again once he's back to j-league. it's about time to transfer one of j-league club to serie a to prove how low the quality of game played in italy. i prefer to send either gamba or urawa
