Honestly he's a right fullback. After checking stats I've got rid of the left fullback unless he actually plays there for us. He's played more at Defensive Mid in the last few seasons that left fullback.

So then we could take him as a CDM. Castelen, Saba(or his replacement) and Poljak/La Rocca for the overseas spots.

Welcome Tanaka. J-league player and at 28 that's a good signing. 

Hopefully the next Polenz or better!

So how do we get him the A-League squad?

do we have to get rid of a foreigner first?

 

One of our foreign players either has to get hurt (so he can become an injury replacement) or leave the club.

 

Presumably there exists the ability to take a third option which is deregister one of our foreigners and replace them with Yusuke. But we have a month until the season re-starts anyway, so presumably we would just release Adeleke if that was going to happen.

sounds like a good plan, replace Adeleke with him somehow

I am guessing Colee if he eventually comes into our A-League squad. Especially if he isn't a left back.

But him being an Asian frees up another spot for our ACL squad

I want to get excited by him, but I got excited about Saba too, trying to not get my hopes but I really want to

Welcome!

 

May your stay be even better than our previous right back.

Seems to be a good signing.
As long as his attitude is right he will fit in well, which i'm sure it will be as he is Japanese.

My Japanese friend told me that he is not a star player like Shinji.
But he describes him as the Sergio Ramos of Japan.

So is he a la rocca replacement or adelke?

 probably a Adeleke replacement but apparently he has played CDM

can play left/right back as well as CDM, Popa loves someone who can cover multiple positions

Yuseke is predominately a RB who has played over 250 games in the J-League.

He last played in October, so it may take him a couple of months to get back to full fitness again.

I'm assuming that he comes to our club on the recommendation of Tensai.

I expect his wages to be at least the equal of Spira, so if he were to be offered an A-League contract, he would need to be signed as a Visa Marquee, as we wouldn't have sufficient space to fit him under the cap.

He appears to wear #3, so he could wear that number for us, if / when Mullen moves on.

Hasn't appeared for Japan yet, could be a future Socceroo

What, at 32 years of age? Don't think so

 

Guy is 28 this April, takes 4 years for citizenship, he will be 32, I doubt he will be at WSW for that long if he is that good...

Cahill would disagree, besides if he's trying his luck in A league then I'd say he's given up on the Blue Samurai dream. A 32 year old utility is right up Ange's alley, I think he misses the World Cup though by a couple of months

Bit silly to waste your Foreign Marquee spot on a RB imo.

 

If that was the case, would of been better to offer Polenz a better deal, plus we knew he is a proven player who loved WSW.

We may have got Yuseke on the cheap if the lastest rumour has legs.

 

My information is that the Wanderers will soon announce the signing of another Japanese player, Yojiro Takahagi from Sanfrecce

when Sydney fc signed Emerton, apparently the coach (farked if I remember his name, they had so many) actually wanted to play him at right back - but a few higher ups and football "experts" kicked up a stink about using a marquee as a defender.

The Jap duo, i think we are learning that the Japs have also technique but much more important seems they have discipline. Lets hope they can help us get past the group stage of the ACL. Guanzhou also spending up big, they want to take home the ACL and also make up for being knocked out by little WSW

You have also just signed Yojiro Takahagi from Sanfrecce Hiroshima so 2 of your visa [/size]players must be about to be released. http://jsoccer.com/index.php/news/?p=3979

 

that news was so yesterday :smurfnono:
One of both of the players will be used for ACL only. Due to the way the salary cap works, we will only release a player if it is a mutual termination or they are being moved to another club otherwise there salary will still be counted towards the cap. This means that we can't just fire or release players that are under performing, this limits the way in which we can bring in the four extra players we have signed in the second half of the season primarily for the ACL (Kalmar, Bulut, Takahagi and Tanaka)
