    Good start from Vortis

    2 goals again so far from Kim Jong-Min and Tsuda.

    Matsumoto arent "hated". However, they also have copyright problems with their mascot. In their case it wasnt due to anyone trying to rip anyone else off, but still, if you dont have clear copyright to the images, the J.League wont confirm them.

    Man, you just cant give it a rest, can you? I never said you are required to hate the club and you are a bad person if you dont. However after all the very specific reasons Ive provided above for why I have a negative opinion of Fagiano, you are awfully petty to be suggesting that I am somehow "wrong" to dislike them. Ill dislike anyone I want to dislike. What the hell is your problem with that?

    Elizeu with a goal!

    So far so good. Although, it seems like Vortis always start off seasons well. Hopefully we can keep this up for the long run.

    Another goal from the young captain Yuki Kobayashi.

    Davi with a good header from the corner.

    Kobayashi plays like a young Endo.

    I'm really impressed. I can see him being in the NT in the future.

    Just a like a loooot of japanese players, needs to improve his long balls and get rid of some unnecessary shots. Otherwise he's very good yeah.

    I feel like the team to watch this year will be Shonan.

    Japanese goalkeeping never changes.

    Ventforet is playing some good football.
    They have a quality manager Jofuku.
    He could have been a fantastic choice for replacing Nishino at Gamba...:rolleyes:

    It's not the normal stadium for them. The only time they are going to play there is today.

    Suzuki had quite the strike. Your defense was not the greatest, especially on Wada's side. Better finishing and an off game by Kamiyama and you guys could have gotten a loss. Fortunately for you, Kamiyama was solid.

    It was nice to see Kihara get some extended time.

    With such officinating Kyoto might really end on top and Chiba once again could miss promotion...

    I think he was brought on just to try and push the defence back with his pace, but he did ok seeing as I guess he isn't that experienced at playing as pretty much a striker.

    I couldn't even tell what the goal which was disallowed after about 15 minutes was disallowed for. A foul on the defender on the line?

    Yes.

    Kohei Kudo is a genius. Would buy a ticket just to watch him pick the opponent apart.

    Definitely a player to watch out for in J2, scored a couple of fantastic gols last season. Speaking of younger guys Waratu Endo at Shonan is another exciting prospect.

    Same here, didn't really get it.
    Kind of boring first half, I think Chiba was better overall, but Kyoto is starting to find its pace.

    Was positively impressed by Ventforet instead. They have a huge potential, and a good coach!

    Sexy goal by the excellent Atsutaka Nakamura, brillantly set up by Kudo.

    edit : Kubo hit the bar twice.

    If it happens, that would be a shock for Chiba.
    But it's easier to happen this year than the last: who would have expected Sagan Tosu and Consadole Sapporo in J1 2012? Probably nobody.

    Gifu were always going to lose to Tokushima and it was just a question of by how much. I don't think Tokushima can read too much into the game. After the first goal was deflected into the net in less than 10 minutes Gifu were never going to be mentally strong enough to come back.
    Still Vortis didn't look bad and I hope for Tokushima's sake they will get themselves promoted this year!

    I'm sure everyone was impressed by 13,000+ supporters turning up for Matsumoto's opening game, but I was quite impressed with the turnout for Machida considering it was a home away from home for them.

    Chiba.... are they going to be haunted by away game results again this year???

    And damn... Kofu were impressive
