I didn't go, nor did I watch it, so all I can really say is job done away from home. That's three out of three in the league cup group stage which is all you can really ask for. To paraphrase Ghotbi, Iwashita was subbed early because he wasn't playing well, had poor concentration and was losing the ball too often. Not the kind of play you want from your captain.

A very much changed team sported starts for Kobayashi, Sugiyama (long time no see!), Nabeta and Shirasaki, but it was Takagi with his 6th of the season which sealed all three points. Kobayashi kept up his good league cup form having scored our winner against Niigata last month. Three points puts us second in Group B, joint with defending champions Kashima on 9 points, but with a game in hand.

The defeat leaves Kobe with three defeats from three and their cup hopes hanging by a thread.


Highlights, thanks, once again, to Amir! :)
