So their revenge is based on them not being given a chance to turn pro, while all of the Golden Generation members realized that dream. Interesting story and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it unfolds. Still haven't seen their combi-play either ...
My prediction of these two becoming forwards is starting to shape up nicely with Kira pointing out Sorimachi's potential in defense. That leaves only Hyuga and Nitta as typical strikers. That again, who knows who Kira might pick to change to a forward.
And talking about Sorimachi, I liked seeing another long ignored player given some screen time. Same goes for the Tachibana twins, who were out of action since the first World Youth game and got a panel or two in Road to 2002.
Thanks for the quick release Shinji
Many time has passed since we last saw Tachibana twins, so I'm glad to see them again.
In the past, did we see any defensive action from Sorimachi?
I like stories in CT, so that I'm really looking forward to seeing much about futsal combi.
Yay for first one, No for the second one
But if they played in the Nationals, they probably didnt make it far enough to get recognised? If its a famous school, why did they not get recognised then?
Hikaru Matsuyama: I remember him taking the ball from Nakazato with a sliding tackle against Nankatsu. He also took the ball back from Pierre when the later took it from Misaki. He also helped in defense against Thailand, by blocking a shoot.
Bowser: it can be many reasons, they got injured, the rest of the team was crap like Aoi's team, they weren't good enough yet, or scouts were just too focused on the golden age.
Shinji - the one man CT encyclopedia
i always get really really really impressed when i see shinji-sama remembering such details
Very nice last chapter, I liked it a lot. If somewhere there is a rate button, I rate it 10 out of 10.
Fine techniques from futsal combi.
It's also good to see Jitou & Sano Combi again.
And here is my prediction for the next action between futsal guy (still don't keep the name in mind. Furukawa maybe. ) and Jitou: Jitou will take the ball, I guess futsal guy will be shocked and won't decide what to do and in this gap Jitou will take care of him. Ike ike, Jitou-san, okay.
So so far, we have seen...the possibility of Sorimachi being a defender, Tachibana Twins as a Double Volante...which we have seen them play as before against Mexico. I think its rather good that the Futsal combi has been noted as the Best Technicians of the "Golden Age" and that their skill surpasses Tsubasa Misugi and Misaki...so they fullfiled the three requirement Coach Kira has set. I'm sure Misaki and Misugi and Tsubasa still has the one skill though. Good job on release
That's what we've seen in the training camp, but we've seen many more so far:
In Golden Dream, we've seen that Misaki can pretty much have any kind of position in the mid field.
Misugi was offensive mid fielder, libero as well as center back in the japanese team, side half in FC Tokyo.
Matsuyama was offensive mid fielder in Furano, libero, center back and defensive mid fielder in the japanese team.
The Tachibanas were forwards, offensive and defensive mid fielders in the japanese team.
Sano was forward in Hirado, offensive mid fielder in the japenese team.
Izawa was offensive mid fielder in Nankatsu, defender and defensive mid fielder in the japanese team.
Urabe was mid fielder in Ootomo, defender in the japanese team.
Here goes the shinji-pedia again
Theres no need for Wiki anymore. Ask Shinji! Weird that a bunch of players in the japanese team gets "moved back" in positions...
The futsal players sure look interesting, I hope to see them in a "real" game soon
I'm a big fan of individual technique and they display that :>
Though, no doubt, combination/team football can be as good, but I'd rather see fancy move^^
Thanks again, Shinji :>
Invis said everything.
in fact, the Futsal combi is very interesting. Futsal is very famous here in Portugal (actually i played Futsal for ten years so im glad to see it in ct manga ^^)
Its also funny to see that Kira may change everyone position. Any hope to see Misugi as a forward? XD
