Welcome Shibahara!

FC Gifu have brought in another young midfielder on loan to try and bolster the squad. Makoto Shibahara has joined on loan from Shimizu S-Pulse until the end of the season. He has only appeared in one game for the Shizuoka club, that being an early round Emperor’s cup game, but S-Pulse fan website author Barry Valder tells me he is an attacking midfielder with pace. Sounds like the kind of player Gifu have been lacking.

Anyway, here’s hoping Shibahara, like Higuchi before him, can be a success at Gifu.

By the way, the S-Pulse UK Ultras blog is a cracking site. I highly recommend you give it a check.  Barry also has a book out called “Watching Football in Japan
