Losing finalists. Losing semi finalists. Losing semifinalists. Seriously, fuck the Nabisco Cup. >.<

There was a fair amount of booing from our fans at the end, but I was just gutted. It's not like we didn't create. We hit the bar twice if I recall, and the post once. Ono scored for a second game running with a cracking bit of give and go play which cut Hiroshima to threads, but that was all we managed, Hiroshima scored with their first (and only?) shot on target, and for that we're out. No trip to Tokyo next month, and just a rapidly fading chance of the title to cling to.

And to the National Stadium they will go

Oh, but there is the business of the Emperor's Cup game with Mito tomorrow, so I know where I'm heading after work. What else is there to do after getting kicked in the bollocks, but stand up, brush yourself down, and get ready for the next boot to connect? I predict a 1-0 defeat due to a dodgy penalty in the 83rd minute.

Only 8 hours or so before the biggest game of Shimizu's history!

Good luck to you!

So far as Kenta Hasegawa goes, this game is actually pretty big! The pressure is on after the league form and league cup exit...

Just off to the ground now. I guess it's a bit too much of a trip for a Wednesday night? Or will you be there, too?
