He’s the Ryo-l thing, says Coyle

27

Bolton manager Owen Coyle likes what he’s seen of on-loan Ryo Miyaichi and has tipped him to make a big impact as his side look to haul themselves out of the relegation zone.

The Japanese winger is at Bolton until the end of the season and has impressed in training thus far

Ryo has ­unbelievable ability”, said Coyle. “He has got pace to burn – without wanting to warn opponents, he is ­lightning quick. He has also got great feet and is only going to get better.

“When he gets his chance he will show everybody what he can do. The proof will be in the pudding, but you will see what he has in his locker. He gets the ball and then ­something can happen.

“He is quite slight, so he has some developing to come. But his work-rate is similar to Chung Yong Lee. I also love his temperament, you always see him with a smile. I like his appetite for the game and his enthusiasm.”

Ryo follows in the footsteps of Jack Wilshere who had a successful loan spell at the Trotters a couple of seasons ago, and Coyle revealed his desire to make the deal less temporary.

“I would love to have signed him permanently but Arsenal would not let that happen. In Ryo’s case his ­ambition is to go back to Arsenal and into their first team. He has enough to do that. He was at Feyenoord on loan and was terrific.

“When you are at an elite club you are not always going to get into the team, but may go on to have a good career. Everybody has their level. But I think Ryo can be an Arsenal player for years to come.

“Jack had to, the skipper [Kevin Davies] battered him in the first training session. We knew he was a player when he battered him back.”

And who amongst us wouldn’t want Ryo to batter Kevin Davies? Repeatedly. Exactly.

Bolton take on Wigan today in a crucial bottom of the table clash and after bigging him up like this it would be a surprise if Miyaichi wasn’t involved at some stage.

Go one further and break Kevin Davies’ legs…I mean what? I don’t condone violence

Say what you like about Coyle, Im really impressed with how he developed both wilshire and sturridge . Yeah they already had talent but he can help Ryo really kick on .

Davi

I just love the faith he shows in players with ability. Ryo is in great hands this season, and possible next?
It could all have been so different for Vela if he had taken the option to go to Bolton instead of WBA. Coyle wanted him and would have given him chances.

Amen brother!!

A midfield with Wilshire, Frimpong, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ryo……….good times ahead!!

Harry

Don’t forget Coq & Rambo

SmokingGunner's Mother in Law

I don’t rate Frimpong, but a midfield with Ox and WIlshere would be special.

MJB

… Ramcoq?!!!
In the box?!!!!

Cool! 😉

Josh

You mean Ryodinho not Ryo 😛

Craig

Would love to see him start. The boy had a fantastic spell on loan last season at Feyenoord and if he can do the same in the Premiership then that would be great. Might be too much to ask that he starts today but we shall see.

For me, Ryo going to Bolton was the most exciting arsenal-related activity in the transfer window. I’ve been dying to see him play this season following his successful spell at Feyenoord and reading how the dutch media raved about the boy

Can’t wait to see the kid on motd, he should get a good few chances with bolton and can only benefit. Good to see him back in English football so we can see just how good he is.

It’s a shame Mark Fish isn’t still at Bolton, I’d love to see ryo batter fish.

ramgooner

ox ox!!!
when he puts on his socks
he makes oppsn defense suck each others cocks

ryo ryo
you are a japanese hero and
you complete our forward trio

I don’t mean to rain on everyone’s parade but Japanese players generally don’t have the temperament to cut it in top-level international football. Very, very few do, and will, because there is no roughness to their game, and the technical level is behind the top footballing nations. I don’t expect Ryo to make it, but since I love Japan, I hope Coyle is right as there’s nothing more I’d love to see than a Japanese star in the Premier League.

The only question is how many thumbs down are you going to get for this racist statement? None from me, because I don’t think you were being hateful, but such ignorance needed to be addressed.

That done, let’s move on.

lordgunner

clearly you havent followed the progress of both japan and south korea .they produce player with great technic and with lot of stamina as good as anyone in europe but they are missing maybe in size and mental strenght (wenger would love that) and their GK arent that great either

Shinsuke Nakamura – Celtic legend, play regular in the Champions League and master at free kicks and set pieces (Japanese Beckham) Shinji Kagawa – B. Dortmund, scored against Arsenal in Champions League and part of the team who won the Bundesliga for Dortmund Keisuke Honda – CSKA playmaker in Russia, plays Champions League and linked with England major team including Man U, Liverpool and Arsenal. These are just the top of my head. The respective national teams of Japan and S. Korea are both technically gifted and industrious with attitude to match when faced with a bigger opponent.

Ryo shouldn’t just ‘Batter’ them he aught to ‘fry’ them too.

And then eat ’em for lunch! 😉

Despite Bolton losing to Wigan, I heard Ryo made an impact when he came on as a sub!

I’ve hardly watch the kid play but after that many headlines in the dutch eredivise last season i was forced to watch and download many of his displays on youtube and to be honest the kid has what it taker to be a great player. When i picture a front three of ox-afobe-ryo and a midlfield trio of jack-coq-frimp. What a future we’ve got. Lest i forget we’ve got joel campbel, samuel garlindo, welington silva, kyle bartley n many more. Excitin young kids out there…. I remain gunner n arsene faithful til death!

AMURICAH

and miquel and jenkinson and gibbs(if he’s not completely broken by then)

Pearson

I don’t think Jenkinson will ever make it. When he makes those AMAZING runs down the wing my back gets sore. I think his strides are too long.
Lets hope that I am talking crap and lets hope we see Jenkinson recover soonest.

If he’d got that equaliser, “Jap Sub Sinks Wigan” would be a fitting headline.

Hope he does well up there, as pointed out above it certainly put Jack on the right track.

[…] 这么一来他对咱们下赛季的保级大业应该会大有用处的吧。他的球队保了级,而宫市亮在博尔顿的租借就没那么成功了。他赢得了科伊尔的赏识,本可以在英超足球中大干一场,但最终他的贡献跟你想象中这个年纪和经验的家伙所能做到的差不多。我觉得下个赛季他最有可能继续被外租,但他在博尔顿和日本国奥队的经历或许能理据服到让老板相信他值得占有下赛季阵容中的一席之地。 […]
