    Playing well again in a league match against Querétaro. Haven't seen Honda look this physically spry in years.

    Copa MX quarterfinal. Dribbles from inside his own half through the entire Xolos defense and scored to put Pachuca up 3-0.

    Honda's performances with Pachuca so far and + the fact that AC Milan is still struggling in Serie A show that the environment at AC Milan is epidemic.

    No matter what kind of new players or coaches they bring they will still struggle until some fundamental change happens.
    Until then any player will struggle and his overal performance will deteriorate as long as he is an AC Milan player. I think It is not just the case with Honda, it is the case with other players too.

    There has to be a balance however... it's not like every player in ac milan is not performing. Suso is doing eccellent. Bonaventura has been very good before, etc.

    One thing is sure: moving to Pachuca was strange, but exactly what he needed. I still think he's looking to MLS, but at least he's playing in Mexico.

    He is playing really great. He should be a starting member for the NT if he keeps playing at this level.

    Kubo was in a great form in the Spring and I'd still like to see Kobayashi in that position.

    They rarely perform when the play on the NT anyway. So I don't know..

    They won 1-0 after extra-time.

    Honda played the full 120 minutes.

    Next is Gremio after 3 days.

    Scored in the opening match of the Clausura, and adds an assist with a wicked corner kick in the 2nd match against América.

    Looks like Honda is rested in the Copa MX group stage matches along with the rest of the starters.

    Any assessment so far, @Salmos @LaMascara ?

    Key player. 1 goal and 3 assists in 3 games. He plays right attacking mid in a 4-1-4-1.
