Albirex Niigata - Gamba Osaka

Jubilo Iwata - Omiya Ardija

Kyoto Sanga F.C - Shimizu S-Pulse

Maybe I've done this too early? I'll let it slide then give it a bump later in the week in that case. Sorry. Anyone is free to discuss the action from the final week of the J-League.

Looks like a hard game for Nagoya, and a walk in the park for Kashima and Kawasaki. Even if Kashima lose, as long as it's not a blow out, Kawasaki would need a high scoring win - assuming the title is decided on goal difference.

Well, if Kashima lost, never mind goal difference with regard to Nagoya, although of course you're right with Kawasaki. Under normal circumstances normally it would be a comfortable victory for Kashima considering the gulf between Sapporo and the other teams, but it's the final day, something exceptional might take place, who knows.

Gamba were so impressive from what I seen against Urawa and Adelaide and yet they stand in that position, it says much about this league.

Yeah, I just meant that I wasn't sure if in the J League the final positions are decided by goal difference when clubs are level, or if they use head to head like in la Liga.

Come on Nagoya! Would be good to see Piksi win the league title in his first ever season in management.

ILA, how good is Hulk? He's doing very well for Porto so far.

You're only supposed to say "though" after you've addressed the question. :(

gamba r already qualified fr da asian championz league next season,rite??
At the moment they aren't. The defending champion doesn't get automatic entry anymore. Although the AFC has said they may change that and take away the spot from the AFC Cup (UEFA Cup equivalent) runner-up.

For Japan it's top three in the J-League and Emperor's Cup winner.

The final day has begun with an encounter between Urawa and Yokohama.

I bet Urawa will crash and burn once more.

11' in the first match, 6' for all the rest [that is, eight matches] and still no goals. Yes, I can follow this only on livescore, terrible. lol

Albirex Niigata with the first goal of the day against Gamba Osaka, Homma.

Edit: Yokohama now with a goal against Urawa.

Edit: Matsushita with a second for Albirex...

Edit: Gamba immediately pull one back, don't know the scorer yet.

Edit: It was Terada.

Edit: Fukunishi has been sent off for Tokyo Verdy against Kawasaki, making the necessary blowout more possible for them.

Edit: Something now happens every time there's an update it seems. FC Tokyo scores away to JEF United Chiba, don't know the scorer yet.

Sorry Serbs. Barring a major major choke, Kashima will be champions. They just opened the scoring against Consadole Sapporo.

Unless Grampus win Kashima are champions, again, anyway. This'll be their fifth title + the two first stage championships they have too.

I would of thought they'd fight harder for their fans. Urawa 2-0 down, now.

Well, they pulled one back, through Hosogai.

Nagatomo extended the lead of FC Tokyo, also...

Kashiwa Reysol just now have opened the scoring against Vissel Kobe.

And sorry, but I've neglected to mention that Kyoto Sanga trail 0-2 to Shimizu S-Pulse.

Well done Gamba, they have completed their comeback. 2-2.

Yokohama score again, 1-3.

Kashiwa extend their lead.

But, all has been quiet for some time on the scoring front in the matches involving the top three.

Oh! Just as I write that, Kawasaki score against Tokyo Verdy, 1-0.

A real hammering. 1-4 to Yokohama against Urawa.

Sorry fats. Your Jubilo trail to Omiya Ardija.

...1-5

1-6!

OK:

JEF United Chiba have now put four past FC Tokyo's two; Shimizu have comprehensively dealt with Kyoto Sanga, 0-3.
