I wish I could enjoy transfers.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

I’m positive about this. Young, has pace, looks like he works hard. Will fit into the team. The PL is a league of pacy players anyway and our team really suffered without it last year. Having an outlet ball is huge for the way Benitez wants to play. I think he’ll be a good addition based on some Wise scouting.

I’m just glad we haven’t gone for the big club hasbeen cast offs. Give me a random foreigner over an experienced PL player making a step down any day of the week. Plus this dude is young.

It sounds like he would (also) work as cover for Perez at #10. Osako played well as Japan's main striker at the World Cup, so there's no shame in him getting a limited look in there.

After Gayle and Joselu, the first thing I would be looking at is the ability to put his foot through the ball. Neither of them shoots with any conviction.

Selfish reasons here, but only two PL games a week are shown live on Japanese tv now, it used to be five, so its good for toon fans in Japan. Leicester get chosen a fair bit because of Okazaki.

The big problem with that of course, is that it is Perez who should be cover as #10 for someone who is actually good enough to perform consistently in the Premier league. Nothing against Mutu, but as a signing, it has all the hallmarks of settling for someone who isn't really Rafa's first choice for the position. Needless to say, I hope I'm wrong.

Clearly this is not Rafa’s first choice but it doesn’t mean that he won’t start ahead of Perez.

He's 26 so he's not that young

Perez was blinding at the end of last season. I think he will start with Perez initially.

I don’t hate the signing I just hate that he’s probably way down Rafa’s list

Korean & Japanese players this window. Commercial benefits for Fat Mike definitely outweigh the 'cost'.

Did cross my mind like. Never had a single Korean/Japanese player, now two in one window? It's not like we've even sold one to accommodate Muto.

By the looks of Youtube appears to be no better than Gayle or Mitro in the finishing department.

By all accounts he's being signed for his industry.

Hopefully he’ll help to ramp those shirt sales in Asia up even further. :thup:
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

As long as Rafa is happy with the signing, so am I. I just don't want it to be another Joselu where he says you have to pay £5m for someone who can kick a ball.

So is Schar. Even if we end up in a relegation struggle, it shoud shoot us op the league in the Premier dreamboat rankings.

Can't wait for the, "That should please Newcastle fans, who are upset at their transfer dealings so far."

This should take our bet spend to a whopping 6m or so.

Will be our first double, along with the balance sheet trophy.

By the sounds of it I don't think he's going to be the main striker, that'll probably be Rondon if he comes. Think Muto will play like a number 10. Happy with the signing at least, if not somewhat underwhelmed.

I think I can give some info:

1. He is young
It's correct.  He just started his professional career at the age of 21 which is normal for players from Japan. Although he is 26 this is only his 6th season as a pro.  He is young.

2.  He is quick
Correct but he isn't as quick as Bellamy. Please also note that he suffered ACL 2 years ago and his right knee is a concern.

3.  He is talented
I can't provide much proofs on this but 3 years ago Chelsea approached him and got turned down because he wanted to learn his trade in Bundesliga and thus chose Mainz instead.


It is a good gamble imo.
