UCCHY: Hi, Happy New Year.Uchhy from Ultra Soccer TV here It’s time for another episode of Ultra Liverpool Weekly where I talk about all things Liverpool We are having a guest for this episode He’s one of the admins for Liverpool Supporters Club Japan (LSCJ)’s Twitter We give you, ITATSU ITATSU: Hi, I’m Itatsu I’m one of the admins for LSCJ’s Twitter account I’m also a writer at LFC Lab For those who are wondering what LFC Lab is, it is a Liverpool fan media created by, AND, for Liverpool fans in Japan to share our passion and knowledge. We write about: tactical analysis, fan culture, and what not. Check the link in the description below to see the website. UCCHY: Fan media is not common in Japan yet, right? ITATSU: yeah, it’s still a foreign concept for a lot of fans in Japan I guess Further more… UCCHY: You’re now recognized as “The World’s Famous Itatsu” eh? ITATSU: I’m flattered but yes, I’d like to make the most of this recognition For those who don’t know, I was fortunate enough to be asked a few things about Minamino’s transfer by Liverpool Echo, Although, they initially inquired LSCJ, but I was the one who actually answer those and my answers eventually made their way to be on the articles by the Echo. UCCHY: So you sort of put your name on the map for the world! ITATSU: i guess you could say that haha UCCHY: Alright, thanks for coming to talk with me today. UCCHY: so your name was actually on the article by “that” Echo. Have you been getting some reactions from the KOP all over the world? ITATSU: right, so when the article was up, I changed by my twitter bio to English *check the link in description for his twitter ITATSU: and I did get a lot of reactions from other fans and my tweet about this article got like 2,000 likes and I got like 800 new followers , who are all from outside of Japan UCCHY: all of them!? that’s amazing no wonder you started tweeting in English recently! ITATSU: yeah, because I now have a wider audience haha UCCHY: I see your tweets getting a lot of response from the fans all over the world ITATSU: Initially, I started tweeting in English because when I tweeted in English, it’s got a lot of reaction from foreign fans but now, Twitter translates your tweets automatically, so even when I tweet in Japanese, some of them read them and reply to me in English! UCCHY: that’s amazing do you see any difference in the fans from Japan and other coutries in Twittersphere? ITATSU: I think I tend to get a lot more positivity from foreign fans and a lot of positive reaction for the article, like “good job” and that kind of comments so I really felt the appreciation and respect for a writer/article from the fans, which was great UCCHY: I think the timing was perfect for that article. Every Liverpool fan wanted to know more about who Minamino is, and the article answered all those questions we had about him. ITATSU: I think football in Japan is sort of this unknown territory to a lot of foreign fans UCCHY: right, so let’s get on to the main theme of today’s video We are going to talk about Minamino’s transfer to Liverpool UCCHY: right, so we’ve prepared some topics for today, but we gotta start with this before anything… as we are shooting this on Jan. 6 and earlier today (on the 6th for us in Asia) Minamino made his debut for Liverpool against Everton in the FA cup tie. We were both at a pub to watch the game from 1 am (JPN Time) despite it being right before the first Monday after New Years Break UCCHY: How did you find the whole experience, Itatsu? Going to the pub was a bit hard for us Japanese right? ITATSU: yeah, it was right before we start working for the year and also the end of a break and the game was from 1am, which in my opinion is the worst kick-off time for us in Japan and I heard there were gonna be cameras from BBC and Squawka so I was a bit worried that no one could show up to show the world how passionate we are in Japan so I tried to spread the word to get together at the pub for the game. But the match day came and when I walked into the pub, it was PACKED. I think there were roughly 50 fans in the pub that was the most people I’ve seen in that pub so I was, firstly, relieved to see that many fans, from the staff of the supporters’ club’s point of view. UCCHY: It was my first time in the pub, so I thought it was normally that packed and passonate! ITATSU: no no, that was special! but even when only few show up, the level of passion stays the same! but I think the last time that many people came was the UCL final, or the celebration after that. UCCHY: there was a celebration at the pub after we won it?? ITATSU: well, yeah, it’s not like the team’s parade back in the city of Liverpool but yes we did get together to celebrate our European triumph! UCCHY: right, we’ll get to what it was like in the pub later But let’s first talk about Minamino’s debut last night. how did you find his debut? ITATSU: well, to be honest, I personally think it was really good. I mean, of course Curtis Jones’ worldie stole the show or Elliot, who showed another outstanding performance. but in terms of attacking players, I think Minamino was the name that came up after those two. That’s how much I rated his first performance for Liverpool. UCCHY: Considering how little time he had to prepare for his first match, it was great ITATSU: Also the team was basically our U23 and Everton played their first team. UCCHY: Possibly their best 11 at the moment, yes ITATSU: So it must have been a really tough match for him to make his debut. But he was really composed from first to finish, and focused on showing what he can do Specifically, he showed he can press, and he was demanding the ball a lot and making runs behind the lines He also showed he is a fighter! His tackles looked almost like a foul! I felt he understood the heat of this match, this derby. So I think the crowd at Anfield loved that UCCHY: It was nice to see him showing his strengths ITATSU: One of his strengths is his mentality, I think. and it was his first match in the Prem, first Anfield (as a Liverpool player) first full debut, first appearance, in his first derby! The occasion couldn’t be more extreme! lol But he wasn’t scared of any of that, and he really showed that. I was watching him like I was his parent or something! It was nervy for me. UCCHY: yeah all of us at the pub were like “oh please may he do well” ITATSU: Yes, but it relieving to see him just focusing on playing his game UCCHY: right. I think his passing in link-up plays could have been better ITATSU: yes, it was not perfect of course. I think there were some poor touches and misses from him yes. UCCHY: yes. Maybe it’s from his time from Sulzburg, but his passes were a bit short at times but I think it’s something he’ll figure out as he plays more with the team so that’s gonna improve in no time I think. ITATSU: It’s often said that players from RedBull group fit really well with Klopp. But it took a while for Keita to settle in with team. Also, Klopp usually doesn’t start the new players right away, and wait till they really fit in with his team. So let’s keep an eye on him without getting too carried away. UCCHY: Right, it is a January transfer too. So he could use the rest of the season to settle in, and he’ll have a whole summer to fit in with the team. So I’d expect to see the best of him in next season. ITATSU: Yeah, I guess that’s how it works for most players. UCCHY: All the more reason to support Liverpool now. ITATSU: Yes, it’s really exciting. Every time the camera catches him, I get really emotional… When I see him in the dressing room, or the dugout… That was really emotional and exciting. Minamino in Liverpool, a Japanese player in Liverpool. It’s sensational. UCCHY: I think the fans in Liverpool already like him right? I mean, I just see their tweets on Twitter, but I see a lot of positivity from the fans in Liverpool, well maybe I’m just seeing what I wanna see but what really moved me was when I see King Kenny praising him on Twitter. He praised how well the young players did, as well as praising the senior players for being a role model. and then he went on to say Minamino was one of the leading example for the young players. I never though the day would come where “that” King Kenny even mentions a player from Japan! I think I’ve not been in total control of my emotion these days, seeing what’s going on right now! but yeah it was really nice to see King Kenny rating Minamino’s performance. UCCHY: Yeah it still hasn’t him yet, it feels surreal! Yesterday at the pub when the game started, I heard a few people saying “incredible” to themselves! Right, I guess we are done with sharing our thoughts on his debut last night. Here are some footage from the pub during the his debut. what’s up guys, Ucchy here It’s midnight in Tokyo but I’m walking to this pub to watch Minamino make his debut for Liverpool. There is a pub in Shibuya, where a lot of Liverpool fans gather around to see the game. It is a derby game against Everton, and the team is already out and Minamino is in it! I think the pub is going to blow up, so let’s check it out! A pub in Ebisu, Shibuya, called “EPILOGUE” The place is already full an hour before the kick off Cameras from BBC and Squawka We felt the need to sing that song! Kick-off at last! signing the chats during the game 34 minutes in… BIG CHANCE MINAMINO!!!!! Minamino subbed off GOAL! Curtis Jones for Liverpool FULL TIME 1-0 LIVERPOOL

  1. オーウェンがキッカケで20年リバプールを応援してきたけど、まさか本当に日本人が来るとは思わなかった。ニヤニヤが止まらん

  2. お疲れ様です
    エバートン戦の一番の感想は「よく勝てたなあ」でしたw
    ゴールを決めたカーティスも素晴らしかったけど、アドリアンが3点くらい防いでくれたね
    ミルナーの怪我の具合が心配…
    FAカップには力を入れていないようだし、次も南野の起用がありそうですね!

    南野は可もなく不可もなくという印象だけど
    試合自体がチームプレーというより若手の個人プレー(アピール)が主体の様に見えたから立ち位置が難しそうだったし
    まだ合流したばかりで準備期間がほとんどなかった、複雑な戦術はこれから覚えるというところ、周りはプレースタイルが分からない若手たち、初めて経験するプレミアクラブ同士の強いぶつかり合い
    この中でよく戦ってたよね
    なにより早い段階でプレミア一部チームとの試合を体感できて良かったと思う
    これからの活躍に期待ですな!
