“Let’s go back to basics.


Sensei ONO images by Local FC #localfc90 Sensei: anybody with a knowledge superior to ours, to show respect to someone who has achieved a certain level of mastery in an art form or some other skill. 

The definition of Ono a master of his art form, teacher and respected warrior. Watching Shinji week in week out has been an honour and a privilege. A graceful Samurai of the highest order we have been educated by the man from Numazu, Shizuoka. On and off the field you give meaning to the word humility. Wanderers fans have been blessed to watch greatness and must enjoy the moments you have left. For fans of football if you have the chance to view Ono live take it with both hands. With a blink of an eye he will be gone. Our league all the better from his presence, but depleted from his departure. More should be done to keep the Tensai here. A father will take his son to the football this weekend to watch the master. He will tell his son “If you want to know how to play football, keep your eyes on ONO(21) for the whole game and you will learn how the game is meant to be played.”

Your boots have been like liquid swords, thank you TENSAI(Genius) for the artistry you have bestowed upon us. Images & Words by Local FC
