Kamiyama and Ishizu sign for 2013.   Leave a comment

Two more players re-sign for the 2013 season, and as with all the players who have been given contracts so far they are both positive signings.
The dealings in the off-season so far have been very good, and the management structure seem to be on the ball about who stays and who goes at this time.

Ryuichi Kamiyama
After the arrival of Mizutani earlier today i thought that it would probably mean that Kamiyama would be leaving the club. Not because I thought he should, but because he has been scape-goated a few times, and ended on the bench for each of the last 2 seasons.
I thought he was our best player for the first half of last season after recovering from a fairly awful time in J1 where he took a lot of stick after some high profile mistakes.
He will still make some horrible mistakes and needs to be more commanding at crosses, but is one of the best shot-stoppers in the division.
Certinly a very good back-up keeper, and one who I have no problems as first choice if something happens to Mizutani.

Daisuke Ishizu
I always expected him to stay at the club, but after a good breakout season where he caught the eye in several games there was always a fear he could get his head turned.
In a bad season for the club last year Ishizu was the biggest positive. Coming into the club from University he was used mainly as a sub on the left wing where his directness, and willingness to run with the ball changed games when he came on.
Scored goals, and clearly showed that he cared about the results even when others around him had seemed to give up.
Has a lot of work to do to keep getting better, he sometimes makes the wrong decision on his final ball and tries to do too much, but that will come with games and I expect him to be one of the main players at the club next year.

Possible team.
Team made up of players who have signed up to now.
