Recommended Posts

Former England international Paul Merson was raving about Okazaki’s display on TV. “His touch and vision were outstanding”, he said. Four UK newspapers gave him seven out of ten, while the Daily Mirror put him joint top in ‘distance covered’.


Pre-match Merson was very negative towards Leicester and Ranieri, post match he wasn't exactly raving over anything, but you could see we proved to him and such the media, we're not taking their shit. Merson pronounced Okazaki's name, 'Hockey-saki.'

Here's a guide to pronouncing his name. Each of the four syllables O-Ka-Za-Ki has the same length, but the Ka should be stressed most strongly. So it's oKAzaki - the stress pattern being just like the word 'adrenaline'.

Would it be fair to say that it is often a Japanese trait to absolutely push your self to the absolute limit in the work place? Or is it just a Shinji quality?





Either way, it appears we have on our hands  a highly dedicated player who seems to have all the attributes that would suit our team...
