Lots of things in life "could have been" better boban..maybe i should re-phrase- Ono was all class 2nite & it was good too see him net two goals..

 

Better sir?

 

That line is an 'in joke' between my sons and me regarding their school results and it comes from the attached video.  Start at 0:50 if you want to see the context in which we use the line.  

 

To be frank, I thought his general play was below his best but this is all forgotten when you come up with moments of brilliance like his two goals yesterday.  B+ (watch the video)

 

We need the sarcasm emoticon!

So he scores two world class goals, puts in a great game and says he can do better. Anybody else scared of what he can produce?

Shinji Ono we adore you.

 

Shinji Ono for you we sing!

 

Scared that some EPL clubs might try and snatch our Japanese Maestro?

 

Might have to mention to him to have a quiet one lol.

If we had a striker who could take advantage of it he'd also be carving up through ball 1 on 1's for fun.

I always tell my little man to keep his eyes on Ono during the warm up, just to see his touch and skill on the ball.

 

He didn't even look at the goal for that first one he knew exactly what he was going to do when the ball was coming to him from topor.

I just hope we sign him up ASAP. He has been a Gem of a signing and he is loving life out in the west now that his wife and kids have come down here.

The first time I saw him warming up I thought to myself, "gee that kid has got some touch on him".

 

I had no idea who he was.  I thought he was one of the youth league players.  He certainly doesn't look 33.

His 2nd touch for his first goal to tee it up for himself is just ridiculous. That's the kind of thing you try in training 100 times and 99 times you cock it up.

yeah true would be hard being away from the family, hopefully he can sell the aussie life to her! he has got a hell of a lot of fooball left in him - given he was injured a lot earlier on in his career you'd think he hasn't got the same wear and tear a 32 year old has.

Doesn't this kinda contradict itself, if he had been suffering from reocurring injuries early on i'd expect him to have quite a bit of wear and tear.

 

Either way i love you Shinji, sign him up!

Shinji kissing the badge after he scored and then kissing it again post match celebration in front of the RBB kinda tells me that I think he likes playing here haha

Just realised today that I had placed a bet on Ono first goal scorer. ^^

Also linked the bet with a multi-bet Liverpool to win FA cup =D

Regardless of him being fit Popa might put him on bench this week, we should be able to beat Jets without him and give him a rest. Some big games coming up with MVFC and Mariners. He has rested him a few times might be time again
