    Although I do agree that its a level down theres still far worser logoes and Emblems. Tochigi, Ehime, Gifu emblems? Kumamoto, Tosu logos?

    At least they kept the Emblem, the feel of the name is still kept and colours are still the same, its not like Vissels complete overhaul.

    If dramatizing is your thing, I won't stop you. My guess is that they will still be running when Kazu is gone.

    Oh Yes definately, I am just dissappointed. It reminds me its like selling Tennis in Denmark, that doesnt happen with inviting some young promising players, no by inviting John Mc.enroe and Boris Becker to a tournament and its not that Japanese not to scrap the old and create something new hyped up as the new thing (in this case a new Kazu)

    handball?

    i am watching that other game.

    Pitch is awful Oita is playing better on it and Morishima decided he will have a day if his own

    1. goal is great free kick and stuff

    2. goal is like wtf...


    I feel bad for Nakamura and Komai

    Also both teams in general are playing really bad football some of it is due to a pitch but some of it is just really dreadful passing

    I woke up at 8 a.m. (italian time) and.. wow! Reading the results, i feel like it was a joke.
    I still don't understand how the most interesting team in J2 (Kyoto) and the one that had the best form (YFC) got crushed by Oita and JEF.

    I think everything is set for a big final between Trinita and Chiba. Go Oita, clearly.

    good games both. Yokohama weren't as bad as the result suggested, but JEF were madly effective and exploited the holes in Yokohama's defence easily. Oita's first 2 goals both came out of nothing, but after the red card the could have scored 6 more.

    Great game for Morishima, and his tally this season is now 18 goals which is impressive.

    It's great to see Morishima enjoying his football again, he's still only 25 so hopefully he can make his mark in J1.

    More than the red card, it's the third goal which hurt. After that they were mentally gone. Shame it happened on Someya because he's been really good this year, he has some potential.
    Now that they've lost I can imagine J1 clubs are going to eat on their corspe, why wouldn't they.

    Yes What was that match XD 4-0!!!!!!!! How on earth could they lose 4-0 on a promotion play-off game at home?

    Reading on the boards, several fans wanting the head of the manager.

    Morishima is interesting. I've spotted him since last year and he's doing a good job so far.

    And Miyayoshi as well, hopefully they'll have some clubs in J1 to pick them this winter.

    Hmm, is it Oki's fault? I know he's regarded pretty high on this board and other places too for his job with Kofu and I'm not sure if he's to blame for that they didnt got promoted.

    Kyoto were imo a bit too hyped ahead of this season, and although a certain contender for promotion not the biggest favorite, which most pundits had them as ( atleast on that pre-season show). Lots of young players that have been inconsistent in their performances is probably the biggest reason as well as a lack of a real goalscorer in their team ( Miyayoshi and Hara had some nice periods, but Kubo, who everyone thought would bring it up to the next step, had an overall bad season). Nakamura of course did his part to the fullest, but it wasnt enough in the end.

    With that being said, Kyoto were just 1 game from being directly promoted, so they still had a very good season. If they only can keep all their players for next season as well, they will come back even stronger I think.

    I wouldn't go as far as sacking him but he carries some of the blame. He's clearly been tactically beaten by Tasaka, who never changed his approach during the season. They played 3-5-2 all year long and the players were really comfortable on the pitch, the defense didn't allow a lot of chances and offered a good basis to go forward.
    Oki started the season with a back 4, then switched to a back 3, came back to 4, going back and forth. He's tried with one strikers, two, and finished the season with 0 (Komai isn't a center forward). Nagasawa, Kubo, Miyayoshi, Hara, Sanou, that's 5 J2 strikers and none of them were on the pitch. That's a failure.

    JEF dominated and whilst their first two goals came from long balls, they played FC off the park for the entire match.

    JEF were indeed the better team, but the home-team had their fair share of chances as well. A bit more luck in front of the goal ( Tahara alone should have had 3 goals) would have made this a much more interesting affair. The timing of the goals killed the game for YFC though, and what on earth did the coach think when he didn't choose to start with Kaio, their by far best FW?

    Does anyone know how Han Kook-Young (Shonan Bellmare) has played so far? He is linked to a move to FC Ausburg in the Bundesliga. (With the help of his friend Koo Ja-Cheol)

    He had a very good 2011-season, and were one of their top 3 performers according to Soccer Digest Magazine. Haven't really noticed him that much this season, but he's not really the type of player you see that much anyway , as a lot of his work is "invisible" ( a bit like United's Fletcher). He's been a regular though, apart from the 2-3 months he was injured so he's had a good season this year as well it seems.

    Augsburg seems a pretty steep step up though, even though they are the worst team by far in Bundesliga 1, but maybe they consider him as a future prospect and not someone who will go straight into their starting lineup?

    He has the same agent as Koo I guess. The best defensive midfielder of Bellmare was Nagaki this year but Han was very good and it's not very surprised he's linked to a move though I think he'll stay at least one season to play in J1.
