    actually, wasn't it Zico who first called Okubo to the NT in the first place... And kept giving him a number of opportunities. But then the Olympics got in the way, and he got to play after that in the Singapore game, but then left for Spain. With Mallorca battling it out to avoid relegation, I didn't think Okubo would be called this week anyway. He's also volatile, and I personally think that he is not ready psychologically to play in a tense qualifier situation (especially this Bahrain&NK games). I'd choose Oguro over Okubo overall at this point.

    If any of you can read Spanish, this is a good feature on Okubo from Marca:

    "Okubo, el gran líder de la remontada del Mallorca"
    or "Okubo, the great leader of Mallorca's resurgence"
    http://www.marca.com/edicion/noticia/0,2458,635315,00.html

    In addition, Mallorca's Ultima Hora daily stated in their match report of the Betis-Mallorca match that Okubo had "demonstrated great promise for the future during the last few games."

    Aftre a few months in Palma de Mallorca, Okubo's already Asia's second most successful export to the Liga Primera after Filipino striker and Barcelona all-time leading scorer Lino Alcantara. Not bad.

    I hate to say it, but WHY IN THE HELL Zico USES Suzuki. I am Kashima fan and I would LOVED to see him leave. How many non PK goals did Suzuki scored this year in the league? ONE. ZERO for NT.

    Lay off Takayuki, he's been a great servent of the national team over the years.Maybe not in recent times but he's just not a goalscorer get over it!!
    And i see people still calling for Zico to be sacked, well i'd like to see any of you lot do a better job.You have no right to critisise.You are not in training with the players all the time you have know idea what kind of condition the players are in or what kind of gameplan he want's.Just support the bloody team and have faith.We havn't done anything wrong, we won Asian cup we wen't through quilifying with only won defeat and we played fantastically against the european champions and the world champions. It's time for you lot to quite whinning and support Japan

    Re: Official Japanese Abroad Thread 2004-05 [R]

    As an Kashima fan, I would love to see Zico stay as a manager, especially because he is winning games. But he needs to sort out the FW situation ASAP. We all know that Japan has one the best midfield in Asia and possibly in the world. But we never had a pure striker. Part of Zico's job as a manager should be using the right FW at the right time.

    If you go back to the CC05, if Oguro has started the game against Greece, Japan probably could have scored more in the game. It's not like Oguro can not score. He has been the most productive FW in the Japanes NT. Zico should have at least gave him a chance, and let Suzuki know that starting position is not always granteed in the NT unless they produce results. If we could have graved some goals against Greece, it would really have helped us in the last game against Brazil.

    Thanks for stopping by, Mr. Kawabuchi.

    Don't have a lot of time, so I'll be brief:

    1) Qualifying isn't done yet, so don't get attached to that 'one defeat' mark.

    II) You don't know what the people around here know or don't know. What gives you the right to criticize us? This is a discussion board - people are going to discuss things, maybe even **gasp** things you may not agree with. Deal.

    Tres) For all those good performances (Brazil, Greece, England, Czech Rep.), there have been equally bad ones (Mexico, early qualifiers). Playing to the level of your opponents is not the hallmark of a good team.

    Fo') Re: Suzuki, Kaji, Alex, etc. -- Zico has his favorites, I accept that. Show me a manager who doesn't. My question would be: Given that forwards are supposed to be the ones scoring (that is why they're out there, right?), why would you continually send out one who doesn't score?

    I await your undoubtedly witty and poignant riposte.

    Not sure how definitive this list is, but it should give you a good overview:

    Yes, but isn't it too cold compared to Yokohama and Reggina? Nikkan reports that his destination is Glasgow.

    Ina staying at the Albion?

    I've made an observation over the past week...

    West Bromwich Albion have lost their last three pre-season matches. During all three Albion have failed to score; they lost 3-0 at Crewe Alexandra, and while they've been on the Iberian Peninsula for the last six days, they've lost to Sevilla 1-0 and last night they lost to Portuguese champions Benfica 5-0. Next week they will close out the tour on Monday at Sporting Lisbon and then play Cardiff next Saturday, where you probably know Inamoto spent most of last season.

    In the last three match reports, Ina was mentioned as 'Albion Starman' (MOTM, if you prefer) all three times. He came on as a sub at Crewe and at Benfica, and played the full 90 against Sevilla. But having not seen or heard the matches, it's a bit difficult to tell from the match reports on the Albion site (wba.co.uk) exactly what Ina did to earn those mentions... make of that what you will. Scanning other sites, I've seen mentions of Ina being good in a 'holding role' in midfield and currently 'more fit and sharp' than some of the Baggies' newer midfield signings.

    To be frank I thought he looked to be on his way out of the club at the end of last season, but I think Robbo (and Albion fans) are slowly coming round to seeing what Ina can do for West Brom. The start of the season is fast approaching, so we shall see...

    Correction: his transfer has not been settled yet because Borussia MG is also intereted in him. I'd like to see him in the Bundesliga because it's a better league and I like its atmosphere. Celtic is a good team too but Rangers are the only competitor in the SPL, you know.

    Nakamura may leave Italy, but we could see another giocatore from Japan. Ogasawara is linked to Lecce. I feel it's time for him to go.
