Big shoes to fill …

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 7:00 am

So Matt Spiranovic is joining Urawa Reds.  He should slide into the space left by the recently joined Nagoya Marcus Tulio Tanaka.

A big character, and a good footballer.  Not good enough to lead Urawa out of mediocrity, but still.

Spiranovic is not joining one of Japan`s top clubs.  He is joining the club that was 7th or something last year.  The league title and the ACL trophy are a long time ago.  They even have the Japanese equivalent of John Aloisi, Naohiro Takanohara … a striker whose salary and on-field performances are all out of proportion …

Could Uruwa get it together next year? Yeah, but the money and the big name players were there last year too.

Japan`s Man U or Japan`s Newcastle United?
