    He must have taken 20 shots, he's really trying too hard, hope the first one will come quickly.

    artml > this stadium + rain = don't want.

    I guess there was rain in Matsumoto as well.

    I can imagine no other reason for less than 4500 spectators.

    Nice to see the Machida and Yamaga winning their first ever games.

    Also noticed Verdy have U-18 JNT players Sugimoto and Yoshino on the bench tonight.

    Meanwhile, a very lively start in Toyama. Pity there's no stream, I'd like to take a look at Verdy.

    It's not as good as last year yet. The "dwarf" philosophy was more fun.

    Verdy hit back with two goals, I wonder if a few J1 clubs are keeping an eye on Abe.

    He's captain already? :eek:

    Wow, he only just finished high school, and even younger than captain Kobayashi at Verdy.

    Shonan is a strange team in that sense:last year i witnessed Kaoru Takayama,in his third or fourth professional match,with the captain armband.

    BTW Wataru Endo is a great prospect!

    At this rate Takayuki Suzuki is goin' to have his career highest scoring season.
    2 goals in first half and Mito is flying on top of the table (just like last season at this point...)

    Fukai-sensei 1-0!Great start for JEF

    Are we seeing the old Davi?

    He already has 5 goals in 3 games.

    I'm happy for him and a little surprised about Mito.

    Don't worry, Hashiratani doesn't exactly have a magic touch, and the club has no money in the middle of he season while other clubs beef up the squads.

    Despite being in a promotion spot, my main satisfaction is that even if the rest of the year is garbage, it probably can't be bad enough to overcome the starting 9 points and risk relegation.

    I almost fear continued success. Mito may be tempted to go he Yamagata route to squeak out wins and that would kill off the great promise that has been shown.

    Yokohama FC is such mysterious world to me...
    If there's a club who may deserve to be relegated from J2,they are.

    Well I also want them relegated since I feel theyre politics with signing veterans as Kazu are a mock towards the serious clubs existing wanting to play football.

    However I am aware that they are in a vortex they cant get out of. YFC has a quite big budget when thinking of how poorly they plays, they get this big sponsorships because YFC has compared to other J2 clubs huge market and media attention, offcourse because of Kazu.

    Letting Kazu go on pension would mean no money to the club, so even they wants to get rid of him and his old guard they cant. However its offcourse all on loaned time because Kazu cant play until he is 82 years old.

    Montedio derails the Kofu train. Will they be the shadow underdog again ?

    With such a tight game Mito would have remained 2nd win, lose, or draw. I hope this one gets it out of their system.

    Yu Kijima, a forward without a single goal before 25, has now two with only two shots and gave an assist today. Nice cinderella story. It takes a club willing to give you a chance to show your qualities.

    A resume of highlights of J2 is impossibile, isn't it?

    If you want all the highlights together, then no.

    But there are a couple of people on youtube who usually post individual team highlights.

    I don't know them by name, but I'm subscribed to 2-3 people who post exclusively Tokushima Vortis highlights every week if you want those.
