    Need to be patient with these new fellas. Just because Kyogo settled in so quickly doesn't mean these guys will

    Looking forward to seeing what this guy has to offer. Lots of noise about him being a classy all round midfielder, like a Japanese McGregor.. let's hope so!

    According to expert today on radio says hes very versatile can play in about 5 positions. Although said hes probably mainly a left winger and is technically very good.

    Exactly. People need to relax.

    And for relaxing times, make it Suntory time.

    Binge watched some full J League/AFC games with him and also Ideguchi's team. He played as a left back, right back, center mid and in one game was pushed to right wing for the last half hour.

    Nothing is guaranteed but I think once he's up to speed with our style of play and the tempo of our league...he'll skoosh it here.

    I think we will mate and the more I think about it, the more I actually think it could be quite a common thing, particularly against teams who just park the bus.

    We’ve all heard the phrase “it’s like our full backs become extra centre midfielders” so often since Ange came in and it can be frustrating when Taylor/Scales get into good positions but don’t have the vision to execute from that area. I think Hatate’s ability to play passes through the lines could be an absolute weapon and one which Ange will use from that position against a low block.

    That said, I think in tougher games we’ll see him utilised in centre midfield with a “proper” left back playing in that role to give a bit more defensive cover.

    Aye, I agree..

    I really want a LB of quality brought in but we may be OK to wait for the Summer with Taylor, Scales, Hatate, Montgomery and Bolingoli still on the books..

    His versatility could be a real asset tho, gives us lots of options and means players like Rogic, Turnbull and even McGregor at times can get rest..

    Think he will eventually cement a place next to McGregor in the heart/engine room of the team.

    Tbh I'd hope not. I didn't really like the look of him at full back. Felt similar to putting Kyogo on the wing where he could go in and play there but it took away his most important attributes. It could work in the inverted role but he looks more dangerous the further advanced he gets.
