Seems like Kawakatsu knows what the problem was last year...not enough goals. The solution?? Sign as many forwards as possible before the opening game. Joining today (for a loan I think) is Masahiko Ichikawa from Omiya Ardija`s sattelite squad/bench. 25 years old, limited J1 experience but another body to at least give some competition for places. I for one applaud the signings as it shows the Boss can see where the problems were last season. Verdy will never bother the big kids with Hiramoto/Inoue/Iio/Kawano as strikers as the latter two aren`t full on forwards and the second one is shit. At least we will be able to give each new forward the benefit of the doubt until we see them. WITH INOUE AS BACK UP YOU KNOW THE OUTCOME WILL BE SHIT. These new guys have a chance to make a name for themselves and let`s hope they can grab their opportunity with both hands.
