My hubby and I are big Albirex Niigata fans too. Been to a few of their matches over the years. Unfortunately, they have dropped out the top league, and don't look like getting back there. Got to admit, I hadn't heard of Meshino before. The team he played for though, Gamba Osaka, are a pretty successful team in Japan, and he came up through their youth ranks and broke into the first team last year, scoring 3 goals in 12 appearances. Fingers crossed he can do the biz for us. One thing you will get is 100% commitment. 

 

The one J-League game i went to was Gamba v Albirex in 2009 in Osaka. 

The Gamba ultras were something else. 😆

Japanese forward Ryotaro Meshino is due to arrive in Britain in the next week to complete a loan move from Manchester City to Hearts.

The 21-year-old's paperwork is unlikely to be finalised and registered in time for him to debut at Celtic Park this Sunday. It is more likely that his first appearance in maroon will come the following weekend against Hamilton at Tynecastle Park.

Meshino is currently in his homeland securing a visa having been granted a UK work permit last week. He signed for City ten days ago and they want him to gain experience of British football with Hearts. The player remains in Osaka and is due to head to Europe later this week.

He will say goodbye to fans at former club Gamba Osaka prior to leaving and is also due to get married before travelling to Scotland. That will delay his arrival but Hearts fans are excited by the creativity he will bring to their side.

Tynecastle officials have already received the player's work permit and are now awaiting his visa confirmation from the Japanese authorities. That should happen this week, with Meshino due to spend the rest of this season on loan at Hearts from the English champions.

For a time I followed Nagoya Grampus 8, solely due to Gary Lineker having played for them.

I'd prefer he used Armageddon's gesture above in fairness.  Instant legend if he does that.

When he does eventually arrive, I’ll be massively disappointed if our social media team don’t go full anime with his announcement.

Wondered more as it now seems he is due to wed so I assume his new bride will be living with him in a new country,for the 1st year of marriage. Hope they are made to feel very welcome and settle in well.

Score more than 10 goals in the season and his welcome is assured. Score a couple against Hibs and the keys of the city are his.

Surely there is a Japanese restaurant in Edinburgh which is run by Japanese people. Seen in the past that sometimes seems to work for players. Think Bruno and Salvatori used to be always around Bar Roma.

 

Hopefully the club is prepared to help them settle in as best they can.

West Lothian.  Not as many as there used to be. There are 2 Japanese families up our street in Livi.

 

Then, of course, we have JapanJambo.

Jambo in Japan

Bit late to the thread with this one, been away cycling and offline out in the countryside.

 

Hate to dampen the positivity but from what I've seen of the J-league, it's very different to to Scottish/British football. Midfielders can expect much more time on the ball out here and it is much less physical, as you might expect out in other European leagues, and the pace of the game is slower as you might expect. That said, players here tend to be much more technically able than your average Scottish Premiership player, and of course there are still a few diamonds scattered about the league who are a cut above the rest. The fact he's been taken by an EPL team at the age of 21 suggests we can expect a bit more from him and he is more than capable of keeping up with a game pace more suited to UK football.

 

In short, hoping to see a bit of speed and technical ability but he'll absolutely need to toughen up and hope he expects it. Wikipedia has him at 61kg and let's not expect him to receive any protection from referees when opposition players try and clear him out the second he gets on the ball.

 

100% expect his English to be poor as well so make of that what you will. Austin's Japanese could be a help, or his inability to understand Craig.. may also be a help.

 

There is definitely a small Japanese community in Edinburgh. Japanese is also offered at the University where they have native speakers, there is also the consulate in Edinburgh and the Japan society of Scotland associated. He should be fine. Edinburgh is a far more beautiful city than Osaka!

Rock sport talking football spoke about the work permit hearing, Gerry Collins on the panel, talked up the boy saying he’s something special, was an interesting hearing, said the panel asked bout Anthony ,Mac Donald and whether would restrict opportunities but McPhee said meshino much further advanced, also spoke bout the Ghana boy who failed his work permits t hearing as wasn’t an exceptional talent

Liked this bit near the end.

 

Meshino has been in Scotland which appears to be Manchester City’s preferred destination. He would appear to have agreed a 12 month loan deal with Hearts in the Scottish Premier League and it was confirmed today that Hearts have secured a work permit to facilitate the move.

But why of all the clubs is Hearts being considered as a possible destination for Meshino. Well apparently the answer may be to do with the Hearts Assistant Manager,Austin MacPhee, who speaks fluent Japanese!

 

 

It's amazing that some on here want him out the club.
