    Now for my "Trees" question while we are speculating on the Olympic squad. In the selection video I do not see Ymago. I think most agree that for the smaller Olympic squad she will not be included. Going out with a world cup win is not too shabby!!!

    But looking beyond the Olympics, assuming Ymago retires from the NT, who is the next in line GK to join the NT?

    Did I get the 1,400 on this thread:)

    That's a good question indeed. I guess we should do it for sure.

    I started posting here this summer, so I don't know how it works: can we do it ourselves or moderators only are allowed to open "official" threads? :confused:

    I am not in charge of goal.com international (for whom I only write the Japanese men's Bundesliga roundup and some editorials every couple of months), thus I don't know when the English version will be published. What I know is - and that may answer your second question - that I didn't contact the club without knowing if anybody would publish it. And, I did the interview in person.

    I know that you and another board member wrote about the Nadeshiko at the World Cup, and I am not here to brag about the interview, just making some advertisement for the cause. Especially for non-Japanese goal.com sites (except maybe for goal.com U.S.), it's been a long time since there was anything on Women's football, and as I wrote, I would find it sad if even the fans didn't notice.

    Just because we reached 1400 (and especially because we leaked into 2012 :p) I was waiting, before answering like it's normal business, cause I guess the change of thread into "official 2012 Nadeshiko Thread" should be impending...

    I ask again: are we supposed to do it ourselves, or a moderator will use his "powers" and create a thread with the [R]? :D

    Anyway, while we're waiting, i'll keep nibbling answers: although Yamago has been great and she's still playing, I think too that, barring some emergency, her time in the NT is reaching an end.

    Evaluating GKs isn't an easy task, and it gets even harder when you can't really follow a lot of full matches of Nadeshiko League and can only rely on highlights of main matches. That's the situation of Europe-based fans like me: GKs have less moments to shine than other players, even less if you can't really watch them play continuously. I guess a judgement about GKs would be hard even for our friends on this thread who live in Japan; for me it's really harder.

    Judging by the scarce info I have, NTV Beleza's Miku Matsubayashi doesn't seem like a bad GK at all, but I really don't have enough elements to give a really well-informed opinion.

    Please go to the new 2012 thread. This thread is over the 500 post limit by a lot anyway so I'm closing it.
