    I do want Rumi Utsugi in Women's Champions League next season!!! :sneaky:

    Sorry, mumf, I gave for granted that you was sent the link: here it is, for you and for all of the people who have access to Moukoko's video (and if you don't have, just kindly ask him ;)).

    *goes watching Saki play in Bundesliga* :barefoot:

    Edit: Wow Frankfurt and Wolfsburg are already 1-1 at 20'. Who did score?
    I didn't know US Ali Krieger was back on the pitch after her injury. Nice!

    VfL Wolfsburg-1FFC Frankfurt 3-2 at half time.

    Kumagai almost caused a PK o_O, on 2-1 for Wolfsburg, just an half minute before Frankfurt scored 2-2. Anyway a difficult match for her and for all the Frankfurt defense, it seems...

    2 goals of Ogimi that gave victory to Postdam 2-4 vs. Leverkusen, one of them of PK :D

    Meanwhile VfL Wolfsburg-1.FFC Frankfurt final result is 4-2 (Wolfsfburg scored again at 90'+2).
    So-so match for Saki... o_O

    I have to admit, though, that Wolfsburg looks very strong: I see their chances for WCl quite high.
    I was overly impressed by their left winger Zsanett Jakabfi: I was wondering why I had never seen her in German National Team, until I found that... she's Hungarian! :giggle:

    Very, very interesting. Thank you very much an_turtar.

    Apart for record-breaking matches with over 10.000 attendences (like the first "clasico at +16.000 :rolleyes:) is really comforting that INAC never goes under 3.000, Belle has always more than 2.500 followers (that's very impressing in a small town like I guess Mimasaka is o_O), and the other "big clubs" Beleza and Urawa always reach at least the 1.000 mark.
    Also, the lowest attendance, 276, was caused by a typhoon and it was even surprising that so many people showed up anyway (I remember highlights from the second half of that match and frankly it'd probably be better postponing it... they were playing in a quagmire :confused:).

    It's true that "bottom-of-the-rankings" clubs still have unsatisfying average attendences, only raised by the occasional INAC visit, but I guess I still have somewhere some data from Nadeshiko League 2011 pre-WWC-half and, even before confronting them, I am sure there was a big progress...

    Looks like Vegalta should help raisng the overall average of Nadeshiko League... ;):giggle:

    Let's hope Challenge League don't drop too much down because of that, though... :p

    Alright, I meant to keep this for myself but after Gromits complaint about obsessions with the U20, here comes very important and relevant news about the senior team, involving two of them:

    Aya Sameshima was ranked second for the most beautiful eyebrows of a japanese international athlete by internet vote sponsored by a japanese beauty salon company.
    Kawasumi was ranked third. First was Saori Kimura, a volleyball player.

    Hoshikawa may leave INAC or women's game all together. He says "I'm not sure about the next season. It's 50-50 at the moment. It may be the right time for the team to move to the next step. I would like to consider it if there are any offers from J-League clubs."

    Utsugi is back ! She is playing at the very moment with Montpellier against Lyon (at Lyon). 3-1 for OL at half-time. Lyon has taken its first goal of the season after 2 minutes only by the great Hoda Lattaf. Then , Thomis (twice) and Abily scored.

    Saki was not at her best with Frankfurt today but it was the whole team wich was not good (Marozsan excepted).

    The match is not over and Lyon is leading 4-2 after 71' (I'm watching it on Eurosport-Fr)

    Wow, that would be quite big news, since, between NTV Beleza and INAC, I guess Hoshikawa dominated all the last Nadeshiko Leagues (since when? o_O)...

    I wonder who could take his place in INAC, should he really leave...
    Maybe, one day... Sawa? :ROFLMAO:

    Yes, Gromit: Virany had told us that Utsugi played already 4 D1 matches. :giggle: And sure enough she already found an Utsugi picture to upload on her site, from today's match (by the way we are now at 5-2 for OL; but they're still playing, I guess...)

    Well, at least we've seen some Utsugi...
    But no japanese goals in D1F today. :(

    And I hope MHSC doesn't lose its second place because of that (although any other team will have to meet Lyon, eventually...)

    I also have seen already the background: those photos with the history of Montpellier HSC are at the Montpellier Store or something of the kind?
    Looks like it was an autograph session, wasn't it?
