Manga News: Check out this week's new manga (7/14/14 - 7/20/14).
Forum News: Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
Anyway... Yes, your post was funny, sorry for not pointing it out, it's just that I was disappointed to see so few... Reactions. Not just from you, but... Well. It's just me I guess.
Oh, sorry, misunderstood, I though you wanted it to mean that just the first half of each match played at the moment was over. However, despite you trying to keep it as close as possible to the original sounding, I think a bit of creativity for this particular sentence is in order. It just ... doesn't sound good to me. Maybe change it to 'The first half of the season's matches are over'.
I too am finding the lack of forum activity disappointing, given what it was at one point. But I guess you can't blame people after such a long period of no new releases and however you look at it - interest does drop, despite fandom.
Hope my predictions and the little discussion you and I had adds some fuel to the fire and spawns a few responses
Anyway, I'll just say a few things... Maybe some people wil react.
Kira mentioned the possibility to have other players, among them, RJ players, World Youth members, and overage players...
We currently have 10 members for the RJ11.
We're gonna have a Japan vs Nigeria match. Aoi is japanese and Bobang is nigerian...
If Ochado is really inspired from someone... Maybe some facts can be found about him.
The japanese team rarely lose. What happens though, outside of competitions, in say, friendly matches, training matches for Japan when Tsubasa isn't here? When they face future opponents too early on?
Oh, the tables we could do, counting the points for the liga, with the few elements we have... Can Barcelona really catch up?
Thank you for the spoilers, Shinji. BTW I'm trying to wait for your wonderful chapters , although I'm very intrigued by these pics.
Talking about the spoiler I can only say:
Chaos..sorry for not LOOOLing at your funny post..I was dead laughing and the dead can't LOL in a thread. Oh well maybe I wasn't, I was at work when I read it ><
Ahhh..it's true. Forgive me too, chaos..I liked your post very much but I forgot to add some lol to my comments..here they are: lol lol lol
Akai - Seen too little of him and really want to have him take part in the game. Jito was injured in this friendly, so this might just be reason enough to give Akai more screen time.
Wakabayashi - A bit conflicted as to what his presence or absence from the game will contribute to. If he doesn't play, Wakashimazu will get a chance to shine again or we could see some of the other keepers get to show their stuff. If he does play, with his SGGK legend and all, Nigeria will have a hellishly hard time scoring. That again, with all the hype from the pictures, I think Japan will get it handed to them throughout most of the game and a super keeper might just be what they need in order not to lose by a margin.
Hyuga - He's the one I think is least likely to come back and am only mentioning him, since he needs some screen time after his move to Reggina. His improved balance would be nice to see in a game and a substitute appearance against Nigeria in a dire moment for the Japanese team would give a lot of the fandom something to cheer about, not to mention giving him a rare moment of stardom with Tsubasa not around.
Augustine Azuka "Jay-Jay" Okocha is a Nigerian former footballer who played as an attacking midfielder. He is known for his stepovers, skill and technique.*
In 1996 Okocha became a member of an arguably more successful Nigerian side, their Olympic gold winning side at the Atlanta Games.**
Teams he has played for:
1990–1992 Borussia Neunkirchen
1992–1996 Eintracht Frankfurt
1998–2002 Paris Saint-Germain***
2002–2006 Bolton Wanderers
* Does seem like Ochado is based on him, doesn't it? And with a playstyle like that, he will be really fun to watch!
** This is a line that really removed a lot of my doubt. Seems pretty sure he IS actually based on Okocha, which brings us to ...
*** This must be the team in the picture given the time Golden 23 was released in and some faint memories of PSG's sponsor. Now this makes his confrontation with Misaki all the more interesting - Ochado playing for the French champions at the time! We all know Misaki has a thing for France and has an interesting rivalry with Pierre, so taking it to the next level with a player from another French team is very logical. However, I am not 100% certain this is the uniform Ochado is wearing, so I'd like Shinji to confirm it If so, a new super-rivalry will be born ...
MISAKI VS OCHADO
Now, that's more like what I expected to read here... Even if I had to force it out of ya
Say, what if Ochado is indeed playing for PSG and will be instead Misaki's future partner? Misaki's playing in france starting with CT3, and he's a PSG player in CT5
However, when they suffer a loss, they always have a chance for a rematch: Loss against Meiwa, victory against Meiwa. Loss against Holland, victory against Holland (all in Holland Youth). Loss against RJ, victory against RJ.
Then again, a draw would be more surprising than a loss since Japan is usually always suffering a loss or losses at the beginning (1-5 against Hamburg, 2-3 against Bremen, 0-6 and 0-7 against Holland, 2-3, 0-5, 0-6 against RJ)
Your argument is really interesting..ignore our side posts please, we're enjoying.
Oh, you already are ignoring them..oh well..it's ok
No one's preventing you from taking part in it.
The above are based around the idea it's not some kind of break in the season's matches. If it is, there would be no need for a better reason However, if that were the case, Hyuga would undoubtedly be able to return too, as well as Akai and possibly Wakabayashi and Tsubasa.
And I'm repeating myself here, but with the hype you've built up with those pics of the Nigerian players I expect them to be a very worthy side, while at the same time Misaki leading the team and being forced to prove his worth, him losing would be a major letdown. Hence my prediction - a draw and both sides with something left to prove.
abo3omar: Really. I've said it was for people to react. Not just for one person. But of course you won't take part in a discussion like this if you only say one word.
chaos_master: The coach was pissed when Wakabayashi overlapped when the instruction was to defend, in the Hamburg-Bayern match of Road to 2002. There was also a newspaper. But hey, you should search a bit as well.
However, I also think that there won't be another Japan versus Nigeria match, in Golden-23 anyway. Probably. That's yet another thing, who'll be the opponents, who'll be the players and so on...
'Cause what the manga is showing now may be elements to fuel past discussions... RJ11, CL, the opponents of the olympics, tranfers...

He must play a part in this then! Confirmation? I mean, whats the point of mentioning an overage player if he has no part to play?Quote:
Maybe... Maybe not. But if him and Soga are joining, Ishizaki isn't the only one in trouble...
