    He plays today so I guess they appealed the red card?

    The way Metz is playing. They may actually get out of the relegation zone.

    Saves a PK (as usual) but Balotelli scores on the rebound

    They are having a really good run now. Kawashima too.

    Bad news, seems all the other teams in relegation battle all picked up at least 1 or 3 points.

    Relegated yes. A good WC and I can see him stay in a good european league for a year or two. We should be honest here, he was signed as third choice goalie by Metz but fought and ended up nr 1 for almost the whole season. Them being relegated has not so much to do with him really.

    I’d love to see him in Boca as they’re one of my favorite South American teams. But more importantly wanna see another GK from Japan move abroad. Hopefully Nakamura can recover and make a move soon.

    Kawashima is doomed to be a journey-man and that's why we love him. It'd be nice to see him in South America, not by force at Boca.

    To Manchester City to replace the injured Claudio Bravo as Ederson's backup:



    https://www.manchestereveningnews.c...man-city-bravo-goalkeepers-transfers-15054107

    Reports lining him up along with Argentina's Oscar Ustari, Brazil's Diego Cavalieri, and Stuart Taylor to replace Bravo.

    I the rumour is true and he signed for Manchester City, it will be big for him and the next generations of Japanese GKs, it will surely enhance the perception of Japanese GKs having one of them joining the Premier League's champions.

    As for Kawashima, it will be good if he could manage to start in some marginal matches like the league cup matches etc.

    Let's see what will happen, and if there is an official interest or not.

    He’ll never play and it won’t change a thing.

    Well, there are some rumors about Strasbourg I heard?

    Well, he's a legend anyway

    It seems Strasbourg want a Japanese player at any cost. Remember that they were linked to Gen Shoji after the WC.

    If they get Kawashima, it might accelerate Shoji's transfer to Strasbourg during the winter break (providing they are still interested in him).

    Why I have the feeling this will be another Metz?

    That's awesome. I'm glad he gets what he likely wanted, which to 1) stay in Europe, and 2) be in a pretty decent league. I think he'll gladly that that regardless of how much he'll get to play. It's not like he hasn't been in that position before, a la what Whispered11 just stated.
