Job done, in what was evidently one of the smoothest progressions for a J1 side this evening. Niigata lost to JFL opposition, Gamba Osaka lost to Mito Hollyhock, and most hilariously of all, Jubilo also lost at home to a J2 side in the form of JEF United.

Is that all you take away?

No, actually. :) Respect to the Tottori travelling support

By far the biggest cheer of the night came when Nagai slammed home our 4th. It was recently reported that he'll be leaving at the end of the year, and despite his rather sparse goal record, he's a popular man at Nihondaira.

Tottori played with a whole lot of heart but not a great deal of skill. They approached the game well but were never really in it. After we scored our third they completely went topoeces and we were just running rings round them for the final twenty minutes.

Round 4 is against JEF United, December 17th at Nihondaira. Kick off at 3pm.


Thanks to the awesome work of YouTube user Spulfly, all the goals.

Hey Barry..a quick question reg the Nabisco Cup debacle you had mentioned before... The Emperor's cup also has poor crowd turn out from the looks of it!!

Barry said...

Yep, the same situation for crowd figures, sadly. No idea why cup football is so unpopular. I bloody love it.
