Page 18: Van Saal cheering them on and Tsubasa is getting sexually aroused by the fighting.
More Hyuga please.
More Hyuga showers, please
I think Hyuga is a more valuable player than Aoi. Aoi definitely has a lot of speed and trickiness but those are not enough to outweigh the powerhouse that is Hyuga, who can be plenty fast too, in bursts anyway.
Btw, the author often does a pretty bad job with expressing height differences.

Barca are regaining their composure after the bad results and team confrontations and Rivaul hints he might play in El Classico. The one thing I didn't like though was how Puyol was portraited, as he isn't this kind of guy in real life ... or at least he doesn't give such impressions during games.
As for Aoi and Hyuga ... I think it's becoming clear who will be first and second in the Serie C The question is who will have the advantage. Sure, we all believe Hyuga to be stronger, but Aoi has been revealed to have a reliable teammate. It might become like that for Hyuga later as well, but right now it's the Nigerian and Aoi versus Hyuga and Matilda. Was also nice to see Hino made it to the bid stage. I hope to see his rivalry with Kojiro continued one day
Rivaul still hasn't given up on the Real Madrid match, so will Van Saal possibly put Tsubasa and Rivaul as Strikers in a Two-top formation? Well , I doubt it..since they're both primarily game makers. But it'd be cool to see another golden combination.
Wow, maybe I'm some kind of prophet!!
Takahashi just drew Tsubasa with two right foots!
Just watched this Spring's El Classico. Hope Real put up a better fight than what their real counterparts did tonight
Lol , Real got thrashed by Barca. Great match.
My two cents on the chapters as always:
Road 76: It's amusing to see that Takahashi is recycling some secondary characters like Matilda. It was also nice to have some news of Hino, it's so rare... The fight between the teammates was new as well (I mean a real one, not something to rise the fighting spirit, which is what we had so far). Payol or Semon were unnoticable so far, now it looks like they have at least some personality. Takahashi is doing with the barca players what I'd like to see from japanese characters, a situation like this would have been perfect for Soda, for example.
Road 77: The revelation of Rivaul not giving up on playing the match against Madrid is something to ponder on. He probably won't be able to play the whole match just like the 3rd day, so, if indeed he comes in, where will he play? Forward? The sides? Will he take Tsubasa's position and the latter will take another one? Or will Tsubasa just be replaced? Will they play with two dedicated game makers? Is Van Saal really the kind of coach to try a formation that was never used in trainings? What will be the answer? We also finally knows where Aoi will play, and we have a knew character, Bobang. It's fun to see how Takahashi is exagerating proportions of tall or muscular characters. A basic, yet effective way to make them impressive.
Road 78: It's suggesting, as expected, a clash between Aoi and Hyuga. AT LAST I CAN REALLY MAKE SOME PREDICTIONS!! However it's kind of hard for me to predict the outcome. After all, if Hyuga is the kind of player who can score for sure, if there's no one to feed him, he'll have to play by himself, while I think that Aoi can dominate the middle of the field, making others score or score himself. We also don't know Bobang's abilities yet, obviously Albese didn't buy him if he was useless after all. His height can be used in defense to prevent some headers from Hyuga, or he can probably score too. Can 2 teams be promoted from serie C to serie B the same year? I guess no... Well, I'll still bet on Hyuga.
It's not that Tsubasa has 2 left foot of left shoes, you can't expect a left foot to look like a perfectly flat left footprint. It's a matter of movement and angle.
Road 79: We had a slight appearance of some of our favourite japanese characters even if it really wasn't needed, but I guess that some of you will be at least pleased by it. Personally, even if I like Matsuyama, I'd have preferred to skip that and go directly to the new problem that Tsubasa is facing. Yeah, pressure, that's another thing that we didn't see so far. Also, Sanae noticing a problem makes her less useless. She seems perceptive when it comes to her husband.
I'm guessing Tsubasa has stage fright?
