    Stabaek on to the 3rd CL-round! 4-0 at home against Tirana (aggr.: 5-1)

    http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/soccer/eusoccer/0809/headlines/20090722-00000034-jij-spo.html

    Kobayashi was involved in 3 of Stabaek's goals through FK and CK, but article states no assists here.

    Next opponent is likely to be FC Kopenhagen who have yet to play there 2nd match today but won their first against Mogren Budva 6-0... this is going to be tough.

    It's quite short notice when he is only going to Europe beginning of August. Let's hope that he has already some clubs interested (or has a good agent), otherwise with friendlies already taking place all over the place, it might be too late to present himself before the new season...

    Adding to this FC Kopenhagen won also their away game by the same scoreline (6-0, 12-0 on aggr) and on Saturday they trashed HB Köge at home (7-1) :eek:

    Tonight Kobayashi's Stabaek will play them... Keep your fingers crossed!

    22 Years-old Ryutsu Keizai Univerity goalkeeper, Akihiro Hayashi, has joined Romanian Liga I (Romanian top division) side FC Astra Ploieşti.

    http://www.nikkansports.com/soccer/news/p-sc-tp0-20090729-524488.html

    Hayashi played for JNT in various youth levels like U-20 and U-23, and he recieved a call-up to Japan's senior NT training camp in 2007 during Ivica Osim's era.

    Hayashi is widely viewed as the next Japan's NT first choice GK, he is tall (192 cm), and very talented player.

    What is your views about that?

    Anyway good luck for him.

    By the way, This club has already a 23 years-old Japanese player on their first team, called "Takayuki Seto", who plays as a defensive midfielder.

    The club is a newly-promoted side, and seems to be ambitious.

    I always thought he was overrated, when I saw him play for the Japan U-20's all I saw was an average keeper. Hope he's improved since then.

    I's funny, when the real matches start for Celtic , Mizuno is not even on the bench.

    Oh for the love of God...

    Are you serious!?!?

    It's our first competitive match of the season and already people are whinging about his lack of playing time...

    I'm a big fan of Koki. I had his name on my away strip last season but, in the pre-season matches, he's been average. The last game on Sunday, against Spurs, he was generally ok when guys like McCourt out-performed him and McGeady and Maloney played well on the Friday.

    I'd expect, and possibly concur, with a post like this after 10 matches or so but the first game of the season...

    Stabaek lost 1-3 away to FC Kopenhagen, but Kobayashi did assist the vital away goal... it's getting increasingly difficult.

    here is a good feature article on Charleston Battery midfielder Tsuyoshi Yoshitake in our local newspaper. He is doing well this season for us and just coming back from a couple weeks off after an injury.

    Yoshitake's Gamble

    Yoshi as we've nickednamed him here, has become a fan favorite. a group of 10-12 year-old boys seem to show up every match, each with a letter on there chest to spell out his name. Plus even with his limited english, he always takes time to sign autographs and shake peoples hands.

    Truly a great addition.

    On a side note, a few of us are wanting to make "Yoshi" banner in Kandji. any help would be appreciated.

    Not easy, because "Yoshi" can be written in different ways...

    A safer (and perhaps cooler?) option would be to use katakana "syllables" and write it as:

    ヨシ

    surely something simple like:

    がんばれ ヨシ! (DO YOUR UTMOST, YOSHI!)

    would make him very happy.

    In case, make sure that the last symbol looks like this: " シ " and NOT like this: " ツ "


    Perhaps somebody else has any other ideas...?

    If you make a banner, send us a picture, and in general keep us updated!

    I just checked.

    The kanji for "Yoshi" in this case is the classic " 吉 ”

    But I still think that, being a nickname, "ヨシ" would look better.

    Now I have a question, actually...

    In all honesty, how is Kenji Treschuk doing?

    thanks for your response goru_no_ura,

    we were hoping to make it in to a two stick banner as most of us seem to be swamped these days. but if I find the time, I might make the がんばれ ヨシ but might have to get some more material for that one.

    Treschuk is doing very well, He has had the task of kind of replacing our USL rookie of the year, Osolvo Alonso, who signed with the Seattle Sounders. (big shoes to fill)

    He pulled up at a match a week or so ago but I spoke to him last Friday and he had started training again. We had a match last night and I heard he was ready to go, but with the rain we were having I think the coach was wise not to play him. Next week we have two games away on the weekend (Portland and Vancouver) and we will need the full roster.


    whats the difference between "シ" and "ツ" and would it get me slapped by a woman? ;)

    I went to the same Dojo as Kenji Treschuk for Aikido when I was growing up and he went to the same high school as me. It's good to hear that he is doing well.

    Yeah, ask Kenji if it is true that "When he was coaching young boys in Hawaii he (=Kenji) was a huge hit with the local soccer moms..." :D
    It is true by the way! We used to coach in rival clubs, and I regularly beat him (not his fault, I had better players), but he was always nice and friendly, very rare for somebody at the Honolulu Bulls... :)

    I wish him a great season with you guys!!

    Now regarding Japanese language:

    シ = "shi"
    ツ = "tsu"

    A common mistake. No slap by women, but still would look a bit moronic...

    is is doing great really, I told him about a local taco place that has the best tacos I have ever had (and I lived in AZ and Cali for a number of years) and ran into him at a local BBQ joint. he is taller than me but were about the same built but we both love the food and talk about good local places to eat (there are literally hundreds here in Charleston)


    i can see where Kenji would get some glances from the soccer moms! Most the comments I hear are "oh, he is the cute one" then again I think half the girls that go up to our pub in the stadium after the games are there to take a look at the players.

    I have everything to make a Yoshi two stick and will try to get it done this weekend. our next game isnt until next week (Tuesday Aug 11) you can watch the game live online for free, and can watch all the past games as well on www.usllive.com you have to register but it only takes a minute. I know Yoshi has a goal of the week clip on there.

    I'll undoubtedly get a bit of stick for this but here goes anyway.

    Koki started against Sunderland today. I'm a Koki fan as I have often said on here but he isn't helping his chances of first team selection with some insipid friendly displays. I understand it's hard to perform to order but the chances are passing him by and he isn't taking them at the minute.

    He struggled to make any impact on the game today. Neither did many of the other players in the first half you would be justified, to an extent, in saying. But players like Caddis and Fox did manage to put in a reasonably good display.

    I still hope Koki can be a part of the first team but he seems to have a struggle on his hands at the minute. :(

    Honestly, for what I have seen (not much, to be honest), Mizuno does not seem to me material for a top European team... he might do well for example in an average French club or so, but Celtic is something for big boys...
    I wish him all the best, but it ain't going to be easy...

    Wow, what a funny coincidence. You regard Kenji Treschuk as Japanese, and I am writing an article about his Ukrainian roots (the surname is clearly Ukrainian).

    What info do you have about this guy? I am using the wikipedia article and some of his interviews that I googled.

    He is Hawaiian, mom is Japanese, dad clearly of Eastern European origins. You can try to contact him through his club, he is a nice chap.

    (I will answer your kind mail when I return to Kyoto next week, now I am traveling and can read email, but not reply due to a server problem...)

    I would highly suggest contacting the club. I've written several articles on the club and players and they are very accommidating. I would try emailing Andrew Bell at andrew.bell@charlestonbattery.com, tell him what you want to do (either by email or telephone) and they will set you up.

    And Kenji is a great guy, if I can help you out let me know.

    goru_no_ura,

    I made a quick banner with the kantanka style "Yoshi" like you suggested, I'll take a picture of it and show you cause I want to make sure I did the "shi" character correctly!
