Verdy 1 - 0 Kataller 0 That`ll Do for the holidays!!

Verdy signed off on the first half of the season with another 1-0 scoreline to go into the World Cup break on a high, climbing five places to the top end of the pile of teams in mid table limbo. Not good enough to break into the top three but not bad enough to be worried about finishing last. A traditionally low Komazawa crowd of 3,000 saw Takuma Abe score his first goal for the club repaying the faith showed in him following his substitute appearance against Oita. He looked lively and did very well to bump and barge his way through the Kataller back line before lifting the ball over the keeper. 1-0 we were OK, Toyama were poor coming forward until the now traditional heart stopping moments at the end when Doi saved the day again. Highlights are here.... now let`s get back to the World Cup. Do we want Japan to win tonight? we really don`t mind either way, if they had a Verdy player or two in there (ha-ha!!) then we`d be interested but seeing as there is more chance of Kazu being brought back into the fold than any Greens donning the Blue these days, we will retain our position of mildly disinterested observers. Happy Holidays and a great World Cup to all readers of Tokyo Nerdy 1969 (except supporters of any teams playing England, you guys can all absolutely sod off for the next few weeks.......:)!!
