Well today was fan day for Verdy and......I didn't make it. I got sick (a cold). Instead, I sat around the computer waiting for anything interesting to occur.
Well, the speculation is over......Diego Souza is now a member of Tokyo Verdy.
Probably a rental, but I'm not quite sure yet. With the addition of the big Brazilian midfielder, Verdy is one of the 5 best offensive squads in the J League. Forgive my hyperbole, but this team has the talent on paper to be a very competitive squad in J1.
The key is to remember that they are in J2, and they need to play to their potential and not down to the competition. HUGE signing for Verdy.
