The old thread was getting a bit crowded anyway, and then a new year conveniently came along. So here's a new, empty slate for all of you to fill with news, insights and questions about the Nadeshiko team, junior national teams, Japanese women's league and Japanese playing abroad - and a bit of gossip and fun as well. Happy new year 2012 to all Nadeshiko players and fans! May it become a healthy and successful year for all of you. And just maybe we'll get to see a well-deserved Japanese FIFA women's player of the year and a few proud Japanese Olympic gold medalists?
