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!
