Off with his leg!!! What??

What`s that Mr. Duggan?? Chop it clean off with a filthy, rusty  Hacksaw??....RIGHT off? Wrap it in newsapaper??? LetterPack 500 with tracking number you say???........YES and NO...... YES! YES! YES!! Because Taira Inoue is absolutely not cut out for J2.... but NO! NO! NO! NO! because it`s not his fault that he`s in a league above his level or at least his feet are in a league above their level. OK, Jim, cut his feet off but you can leave the legs.
It`s time to call in Kawaktusu`s number....what the hell is he doing playing Inoue up front on his own again?? The guy is powder puff to the extreme....no confidence, no ability to hold the ball and when through 1-on-1 with the keeper this evening.......JESUS F##########KKKKIN CHRIST!!!!!!  If you are bottom of the league and a chance comes along on a silver platter, with the waitress asking which hole "Sir" would prefer the goods blown into...you`ve at least gottta make the waitress earn a tip!!!  Also, what the hell was he doing trying to convert our best striker (last seasons 3rd best before Oguro and Hayashi left) Hiramoto into a bloody left back??  To be fair after Inoue`s nightmare of a half, he brought Hiramoto on and though he didn`t score, he looked like he might score another goal in the remainder of his career.
Game wise it was an entertaining affair with Verdy on the attack from the off.......albeit a couple of pityfull "shots"  from Iiio and Inoue. Inoue picked up a booking early doors from the lightest of challenges and this was to set up his lacklustre afternoon. The Venforet pairing of Maranhao and Kim looked dangerous throughout with some great interplay, a real handful for Tsuchiya and Tomisawa. The game was played at a good pace with opportunities coming and going and a golden opportunity for Inoue....after being put through by Tsuchiya he raced to the goal, no defenders anywhere near him, just the goalie to beat and "let rip" with a pea roller across the keeper that trundled tamely past the post. The word lame doesn`t even begin to describe the attempt. Embarrassing?? Shameful?? Nope, just normal for him........The second talking point of the first half involved Tomisawa and a blatant handball in the box, seen by everybody in the stadium and sitting at home.....apart from the referee. A lucky escape indeed. Half time came and at this point probably Kofu had had the better of the exchanges but we were still in it. Into the second half and Venforet took the lead with a simple 3 pass move. The Verdy reargaurd was sliced open to leave Kim with an easy header from the six yard box. Three quick passes, bing-bing-bing and Doi was picking the ball out of the back of the net. A slick move.
Hiramoto had come on at half time for Inoue and even though he didn`t do much, he at least gave a presence and kept the ball when it was played up to him. Inoue apart from his dreadful miss couldn`t hold the ball or pass to his own player. With Hiramoto, the options opened up as the ball wasn`t given straight back to the opposition. Verdy were to equalise in the 80th minute from Toshiyuki Takagi`s (another stonewaller this time seen by the referee) penalty to register his first J League goal. 1-1 looked to be the final score....but whereas last week we scooped 3 points in the last minute we were on the recieving end this week....and how much did that hurt!!?? Our own fault though, as if the opposition brings on a beanpole (Mike "3m" Havenaar) you`d think it might be obvious that the high balls might rain down into the box. They did indeed and Havenaar nodded one off the bar and no Verdy defenders had bothered to follow up on the rebound leaving a simple tap in for the Kofu striker. Schoolboy defending and kindergarton finishing cost us this weekend. You make your own luck and when we had our simple chance , Inoue fluffed it and when Venforet had two simple chances of their own, they scored, BOTH TIMES. Humph!!
