Depends whether I hated Koreans or not

This must go down as one of the most awful, ridiculous, embarrassing decisions made by a club in recent times but we have already discussed the probable underlying reasons for it.

Rivals that appointment of that Brazilian lower league coach that had managed about 80 clubs in so many years or something also in J-League of course.

This was in J League 2 btw. 48 year old Kazuyoshi Miura.

He played more than an hour for them.

At that age, vd Vaart would probably only last 10 mins


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Makes me think of a few Japanese athletes still performing well into their 40s - the ski jumper, Noriaki Kasai, and the tennis player Kimiko Date Krumm.

J-league has restarted. Whether you like it or not, whatever is their level in terms of quality, you can't deny that it's one of those leagues in which the final winner is not obvious.
2017 champions Frontale won at Iwata (3-0). All the other top clubs (according to the results of the past season) failed to win instead. Interesting win of freshly promoted (but one of top traditional clubs) Nagoya at Gamba Osaka (3-2).

Wonder how Nagasaki will compete at this level. Lost in the opening round but just narrowly.

I'll be following the results of Yokohama as they appointed ex Socceroos coach Postecoglou.

I will also follow V-Varen Nagasaki closely. The name of the club is pretty dumb, but I'm a fan of the city because of the Christian community in it.

Huh they've got an Aussie, Ben Halloran. Spent a while in the German 2nd division with Heidenheim.

The average quality of foreign players of the J-League is indeed low and way to many Japanese players play in European leagues anyway. That said, the Japanese clubs manage to keep a pretty high profile at Asian level, so unless it means that Asian clubs are poor as a whole, it means that somehow the Japanese clubs manage to build competitive teams.

2-2 draw for Nagasaki... not a bad start really.

Though annoyingly they blew a 2-0 lead.

Frontale are visiting Melbourne tomorrow (2-2 at Todoroki)

In the J-League third win in three games for Sanfrecce who won at Kashima, but Frontale follow at close range thanks to a win on Gamba (three defeats in three games for them).
Good point for V-Varen, thanks to a tie with Reds.

I'd like to see that match, but I'm always tired after TAFE finishes at 3:30. It takes a couple hours to get from Bendigo to Melbourne... don't really feel like it. I can watch it on tv though.

In the weekend Frontale vs Sanfrecce at Todoroki, that means the two clubs leading the J-League with 10 points (after 4 games).

Planning a trip to Japan later in the year, I'll see if I can catch a J-league match.

If I could visit Japan (but I doubt it's possible) I would definitely visit the area of Nagasaki.

Oh yeah baby. There's a lot of buzz about this. Can't wait to see him in action.
