Hiramoto to Yokohama FC


Moments ago, the team announced that lifelong Verdy man Kazuki Hiramoto is being sent up to the big time on a 7 month loan. Hiramoto will join King Kazu, Shingo Nejime, and Jun Tamano in possibly the ugliest uniforms ever as he joins up with Yokohama FC. Hiramoto passed up offers to sign with JEF Chiba in order to help Verdy regain promotion. While having flashes of brilliance in J2 under the helm of Ramos, it never seemed the forward was comfortable with the permed one, fading in and out at various times during the 2006 campaign.
Injuries at the start of this year slowed Hiramoto and he never had much of a chance to feature in the revamped lineup. With the drop of Takagi from the squads first 16, you have to wonder if CyberAgent is trying to purge the last vestiges of the 2005 squad.

Speaking of the 2005 squad......
Is Omiya hoping to recreate the magic? Reports are that Takashi Hirano and Angel of Death Takuya Yamada have come in for trials with the Saitama squad. Seriously, if they both are gonna trade players back and forth, just merge the friggin squads.......it would save me a ton of money!

Bad news but fair play to Hiramoto...I don`t think Takagi was dropped for anu other reason than he was playing terribly,unfortunately Yoshihara is no better.Takagi plus a crapper reserve.Ring a bell anywhere!!?? How are The Wave doing these days? Super goalie I here....I saw the second half Montedeio, bloody boring for the most part.Tsuchiya had a chance to win it but slipped it past the post,FUNAKOSHI IS USELESS!!!!!!!!!!!! Hulk was quiet,set up Diego nicely though.Lets hope we can get the ball rolling against Bellmare!!

Are you attending the game on Sunday? Haven't been since black thursday.

Yeah Im going,Ive not been since the Mito game either.Black in terms of the result but it was perfect in terms of sunshine,few beers and relaxation!!Football in Japan isn`t all about the game (not for me anyway).Ive now moved up to Saitama so its gonna be a bit of a ballache to get there.Just as i was hoping Reysol and Yokohama stayed down last year so I could get to away games,Im hoping Omiya and Reysol go down this year!! Or stay up if we go on one hell of a run and go up!! Ill be in the cheap seats with a couple of friends.Where are you sitting??

Saitama, huh? Well root for Urawa to get dropped then.....just on principle actually.

I'll be in the 1969 seats

Unfortunately,not as likely as Omiya going down.Also I liked Omiya Koen stadium so gettng to see a knockabout there again`d be nice.I went at Hanami time a couple of years back and had a great day out.Very picturesque at that time of year.Close to the pitch,its everything that Chofu isnt.
