Emperor's Cup 4th Round Draw

Barry Barry writes

S-Pulse will play Cerezo Osaka in the Emperor's Cup 4th round. The game will be played away at Cerezo's second home ground, the Nagai Stadium, and is due to take place on Saturday, December 15th.

Cerezo beat us at the 1/4 stage last year, but looking back at our starting line up, we'll be maybe 8 players different this year, and we WILL beat them. Trust me. :)

A tantalising prospect, not very likely given Zelvia's impending demotion to the JFL, but tantalising nonetheless, is the fact that we're set to play the winners of the Gamba Osaka v Machida Zelvia. We all know who manages Machida, don't we? Only former S-Pulse boss Ossie Ardiles. Would be amazing to welcome Ossie back to Nihondaira (or whatever corner of the country the game is arranged for).

As Gamba Osaka might focus on the championship, considering they're likely to go down to J2 (they'd already be in J2 without Leandro), both the clubs have the same problem, and might have their chances in that game I think.
