I got the response below on twitter, from a friend who produces a Japanese Soccer magazine:

 

'WOW! Hearts will be getting a dynamo! One of the hottest young Japanese there is! Fast, skillful, superb shot and, most important compared to many Japanese, not afraid to try something.'

 


Make this happen Hearts!

 

Please make this happen 🙏

The sfa must endorse the player as of the correct skill level, this gives him a governing body endorsement. The home office won't issue a work permit without it.

City could get the fa to do it, but the SFA would still review the player before granting the players registration on loan.

He meets the for a ranking part, Japan have never been ranked lower than 62 so their two year average will be high enough.

I msgd my Japanese friend who follows Hearts and his response was.. 

 

"Hi thanks for the heads up.  Would be exciting for me personally as a Japanese" 

 

"Meshino is a Gamba Osaka youth product, from probably the highest rated academy in Japan.  He hasn’t really done all that much yet to warrant a Man City move (and not too young anymore at 21), but he was having a good season so far with Gamba (season starts in February) finally nailing a staring place and scoring some goals."

 

" Quite a dribblomanic - hope he is smarter than Tony Watt!"

 

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zlDNf28E9E0

 

" I’d add that he is an old-fashioned smaller forward, a No 11 who tends to get deployed on the wings but not really natural there.  I can’t really compare the levels as I have never seen Scottish and Japanese teams play each other - he could be anywhere between Sam Nicholson and Graham Weir.  Probably a smaller Tony Watt.  Downplaying expectations a bit.😉"

The recruitments been class this year to be fair if we can get these last two players over the line and finally get the tactics right Ross county game will be completely irrelevant, definitely rather be signing this quality of player than loaning players from sevco

Quite an avid follower. If he remembers Graham Weir.

More like poured a bucket of water over it 😂

 

Seems strange City would take him though so I'm fairly optimistic he is better than Tony Watt.

It's guaranteed he'll fall into that category, the problem we have is it'll be a biased panel not wanting their beloved OF getting their feathers ruffled. It won't come in to the thought process that Scottish football will improve with these sort of players, which is pretty sad.

Is there a panel made up of OF supporters?

 

I though it was the Home Office or similar that decided if folk can work and live here. 

 

Am I missing something???

City signing a mix of Watt and Weir makes me laugh. Nae wonder they are loaning him out immediately! 

 

Jokes aside I hope this happens and he can inject some excitement into the works most boring football team.

The SFA need to grant him registration to play in the Scottish league as a player.

He’ll get a work permit no problem based on his income relative to the rest of the side and on being a first pick for our first team unlike when Cletus Nombil had his turned down. 

 

Exactly. Nombil was a 2-2 split with the panel so this guy will cruise it.

Could this be a beginning of us gaining an EPL type Japanese fan base? Friendly games in Tokyo v Real Madrid etc?

Wonder if Shinsuke Nakamura, Asuka and Kairi Sane will pop to Tynie when WWE in Scotland in a couple of months?! We should extend invites!

 

Mind you, The Rock never came to see Perry Kitchen!

This would be made to a panel made up of former players and managers, who can grant a Governing Body Endorsement if they judge Meshino would be an asset to the Scottish game.

 

 

Again, Meshino isn’t eligible automatically, but the “exceptional talent” appeal can be used again, except the case for the player becoming a regular at Hearts, and the club not being able to find a player of the same standard who would qualify for a work permit, is far stronger.

If you watch the YouTube videos of him

A lot of the clips stop before you see the end result, which tells me that he may rarely have an end product. 

He does also look a bit ball greedy also, you dont see many crosses from him or many assists. 

 

On the plus side, he's very good with both his feet and we dont have anyone that can dribble like him (apart from a few posters on here) 

 

Hopefully we sign him and he turns out to be messi mark 2

I don't want to be too keen, but it feels like one of them signings where they're rumoured and everyone is speculating about when it will come to fruitition in about a weeks time but it ends up scarf above head around 3 or 4 this afternoon. 

 

Unlikely though, because the SFA will absolutely drag it out as long as they can.

The decision of the Work Permit Review Panel (Scotland) is communicated to the Home Office's Work Permits (UK) Unit who then issue a formal response to the club. 

 

In the case of Dundee United's application for Jason Scotland it was rejected by a panel consisting of a vermin majority (Scotland had just scored the goal that beat Hibs in the LC semi-final).  Afterwards, Scotland joined Falkirk and Falkirk's application for a Work Permit was approved.

Sounds a similar player to Anthony McDonald. I'd rather we developed our own. Isn't that the point of the Academy?

Why do we all assume he will a) be outstanding, or b) play on the first team?

 

I assume its because he is via Man City, we have had supposed City wonderkids before as have the Hobos, and they were no worldbeaters

 

Is it because he is Japanese that everyone is excited?

 

Also, we were going down this road with the African boy, and had we been siccessful, he was desined for the youth team, why is this boy any different?

I doubt Anthony is getting signed by Man City any time soon so so I expect this giy to be far better. I could be wrong of course.

No. I'd rather we win football games. Having quality around will only improve the prospects that have a chance of making it.

 

Nothing against McDonald who is going to be a great player.

Think people are rightly excited at the youtube clips and the fact he is a million pound player, every player has a risk of failing but we wouldn't take a player of that value for our reserves - pointless and his calibre may help the other youngsters improve their game.

Probably one of the reasons he enjoyed being part of the Hamilton team that relegated them, karma perhaps?

Because you don't take a player on loan to play in your youth team. That would just be weird.

 

Big teams may from small teams with a view to buy, but not this way round.

 

And we're excited cos we're allowed to be.
