I hope he can be our club ambassador for our WSW Japanese fans. The Japanese love him

 

I was wearing my shinji jersey in hawaii and all the japanese were staring and commenting and gesturing to me about the name on the back and giving me thumbs up... I like to think it was because of my rugged good looks.. but whatevs.

For those of you with an academic bent ("An academic bent what?" I hear you ask) here is a good article from a couple of WSU academics on Shinji's impact as an Asian sports star in western Sydney.

I don't know anything about McDonald but the other author of the paper, Jorge Knijik is a very good bloke and has a real love of sokkah & the Wanderers

Shinji was/is imho ( at the present time ) the best visa player we have had.....by a long way. My favourite Wanderer ( closely followed by Santa and Bridge ).

Broich definitely stuck around and was great for Brisbane but he dived too much and the refs fell for it more often than not - imo

Unfortunately, diving is part of the game (I agree that it is not a good part of the game).

But Broich's impact on the Roar, and the overall league, was arguably greater than Tensai.

Roar (led by Broich and Ange) revolutionised the league. The number of trophies shows this.

Ono arguably did too (but over a shorter period of time). If we'd have come into the league earlier, or acquired Shinji at a younger age, he would've easily been more effective, overall.
