|Happy New Year!!!!|
That of course would be fantastic but let`s consider the circumstances...we finished 5th last season which was a superb achievement considering where we were at the start of the season. However, at the start of the season there was ZERO expectations with Coach Kawakatsu himself saying he didn`t think we had a chance of promotion. And he was right. At no point in the whole year did we occupy a top three spot, we got to 4th with a few games to go but blew it when facing the big boys JEF and Avispa eventually finishing a rather large 11 points and 16 goals out of 3rd place.
How are we going to do next season? It`s anybodys guess at the moment but looking at who is coming down, Bellmare, Sanga and FC Tokyo....Sanga and Tokyo will be battling to get straight back up though Bellmare will probably come down and stay down after their nightmare of a season. We will be checking the transfers and rosters when they are released and come back with a (probably not very) indepth pre-season report outlining all the runners and riders for J2. For the moment, The Emperors Cup Final is on in a minute so......Happy New Year!! Enjoy the Day!! Enjoy The Year!! And we`ll be back soon!! Still Shit!! Still Here.....Tokyo Nerdy 1969
