Wishing all our readers and S-Pulse fans the world over a very Merry Christmas, and a healthy and prosperous new year!
While I'm here, some good news. U22 international Yutaka Yoshida has signed from relegated Kofu. There was interest from as far afield as Germany, but we managed to snare the speedy young prospect who can play either left or right back.
With Ota looking like he might be off to Europe, we needed to fill the void, and this looks like a solid signing.
