    Edit. Question - Hokushinetsu or Hokuriku?. recently google translates to both.
    Hokushinetsu (北信越) is right because Nagano prefecture is not in Hokuriku (北陸).

    Thank you both :thumbsup:. I have used Hokushinetsu for the past 2 years. I had thought maybe I had been using the wrong word and neither of you had corrected me.

    Also of interest, Nagoya have opened their new training facilities.

    Impressive data collecting :thumbsup:. Do you keep track of every player that scores?
    Just wondering which of the 4 winter transfers (Kamiya, Suzuki, Otake and Katayama) came out on top?

    Also there was the Urawa 5-0 Uni selection game. Not sure who scored the goals but seem to remember Ando being mentioned for 1?

    Yes, I do, but only for the tournaments I mentioned, so I don't have the data of the Urawa-Uni Selection game you mentioned.

    Of course, I guess you only mean the goals they scored since their transfers to the WE League, and not the ones they had previously scored in Nadeshiko League. If that's the case, the rankings read as follows (all goals scored in WE Legue: they of course didn't score in any other competition for their respective new teams, since they weren't around when WE Legue Cup and Empress' Cup were played):

    - Chiina Kamiya (5 goals)
    - Haruhi Suzuki (4 goals)
    - Mayu Otake (3 goals)
    . Yuna Katayama (1 goal)

    So, apparently Kamiya and Suzuki are way better scorers than Otake and Katayama. Or is it that the formers had the luxury of playing for Nippon TV Tokyo Verdy Beleza, while the latters had to settle for Nojima Stella Kanagawa Sagamihara? :rolleyes:

    She played every match for Elfen last season and was a key member of the team. Elfen had a poor ending to the season losing their last five matches, but they played some nice football. Injuries hit them hard.

    Maybe she thinks Ohmiya are a better fit, or she wants to move closer to Tokyo by 35 km. Either way she is still in Saitama.

    But I think Kanehira is a good pickup for Ohmiya becuase she is a versatile player who can play in midfield and defence.

    Well, another Goalkeeper going abroad (and an awarded one at youth level): let's hope it's a good sign for Japanese women's football. :coffee:

    (It could be both: our GKs are becoming so good that clubs abroad want to sign them, or our GKs will become better from getting more and more experience abroad; in the end, aren't we going to the Olympics with Shu Oba, playing in USA, as the reserve list's GK?).

    Tanikawa didn't score in the previous game because not even on the bench due to injury.
    I hope it's not so serious.

    On my damallsvenskan fantasy football manager she is listed as "yellow" injury as opposed to "red".
    I guess perhaps it's at least not season ending or very serious injury?

    The Japanese new acquisition from Bayern Munich, Momoko Tanikawa, was completely out of the squad and thus had not gone to Stockholm either.

    Reason? An injury in training earlier in the week.

    - She got a bang at training this week so we are evaluating what it is and how serious it is. That's why we didn't want to take a chance before we know," said head coach Joel Kjetselberg after the game.

    When Tanikawa can be back in action, we don't really seem to know yet.

    "We'll see what happens in the next week, what exactly it is. I don't really know, but she got a knock on the foot anyway," says Kjetselberg.

    Both home and away kits aren’t bad imo. But I will miss the pink away kits, I feel it gave Nadeshiko their own identity.

    H.T.....Shizuoka 2-0 Ehime
    Coach Midori Honda gives coach 'Clueless' a lesson in counter attacking football
    Goals from Nakajima at 6 min and a very creditable solo effort from Tsuchiya at 13 min
    Ehime have had their fair share of attacking play but have been ineffective and should have been 3-0 down at 41 mins also lost Matano to injury (subbed by Kubota).....H.T.....woe is me

    I agree that the pink/purple secondary kit was quite pretty, but about "their own identity"... :rolleyes: ... it was a quite abused colours-palette by many teams in the latest years.

    The new kits look simple, streamlined (and that's not something you can often say in these times of complicated, mostly extravagant designs), but at the same time they look good and the colours seem well chosen: the particular shade of blue looks distinctly "Japanese" to me and the lines of red make a shiny contrast on the white of the secondary kit.

    Of course, it's also the models making those kits look so good... :giggle:

    Nadeshiko League 1

    F.T....Shizuoka 2-2 Ehime

    Ehime had an absolutely storming last 20 mins and secured an away point....A very determined and hard running Kubota lead the comeback scoring at 75 mins after being released to go forward and Matsumoto equalised at 88 mins when it seemed that every Ehime attacking player was on the pitch (Tago, Kubota, Yokoyama, Matsuoka) so who knows perhaps coach 'clueless' might get the message finally because at 70 mins Shizuoka had won this game.
    Ehime F.C Ladies problem is that there have been that many combinations that it seems that the current players on the pitch can't 'read' each others play because they are more or less strangers to each other game by game and that showed in this game....this player lead comeback was very much enjoyed this viewer....sack the coach

    Colour and pattern are very good, but huge Y-3 letters look out of place. :thumbsdown:
    In my opinion national team kits should not have such dominant brand symbol on them, especially in form of letters. I suppose without them Yoji Yamamoto would still be proud of his work. :unsure:
