I suspect a lot of people couldn`t give a flying f@@K and might even be happy to see Verdy go. However, what do the people who live and breathe football week in week out do if their team is taken away from them?? To all the people who would be happy to see Verdy go just imagine YOUR team is up against it at the end of this season. Time to stand and be counted!!
Verdy have installed a Verdy Youtube Channel for fans to upload video messages of support:

|Boobs are always there when times are tough be they real or just a picture. Should we lose tomorrow please ignore the match report and focus your mind on the above. The pain of defeat will recede momentarily..|
Giravanz could however win soon as they come to Ajinomoto on Sunday...
Also please check FC Tokyo doing their utmost to join us in J2 next year!! Here`s to a J2 Tokyo Derby next season!!

Verdy upped the pressure as the second half went on, Shibasaki had a long range blast which the keeper was relieved to simply get a hand to, Hiramoto had an easily collected dolly shot when he should have broke the net, Takahashi blasted over when completely unmarked in the box.. Last weeks (semi) hero Toshiyuki Takagi came off the bench and went close with a thunderous strike coming back off the foot of the post to up his chances of starting the next game. The game finished on a slight bit of controversy with Takuma Abe sent sprawling in the box in the 93rd minute, no call from the referee. Definate penalty but would have been an undeserved win should it have been slotted away. 0-0 dull game, 3,700 people probably wondering why they bothered making the trip and a few more watching on TV wondering why they didn`t go shopping or something. Next up the worst team in the league Giravanz Kitakyushu. They have registered just one win in 25 games and we all know who that was against.........on a personal sidenote for the ladies out there, any bloke worth his salt will tell you there`s nowt wrong with a bird with a big arse.

|More tea Vicar??|
Taira Inoue did indeed (surely for the last time) take the field as starting striker and predictably gave a masterclass in scuffing, shinrolling, 50p heading and general ineptitude. He passed up FOUR golden opportunities to score. No amount of analysing, soulsearching or mediating circumstances can disguise the fact that TAIRA INOUE IS A SHIT FORWARD! He knew himself he was having a `mare cursing and slamming the turf in frustration at his feet not being able to do what his head was telling them. However he wasn`t the only one guilty of horrendous finishing, Abe skyed an effort from the 6 yard box that should be landing back down just about now, Shibasaki was shooting from anywhere. Truly awful.
Now let`s turn to Yokohama, it took them four attempts to score three goals. The first a corner swung in after 10 minutes and the forward was unmarked to glance his header home, the second a huge goalkick upfield, one bounce, Tomisawa left it thinking it`d run through to Doi, Yokohama forward nipped in and chipped in, the third saw Tsuchiya unusually unsure of himself and again the forward was able to slot home far too easily. So 3-0 down after having the ball for the majority of the game and dominating play.
The Fightback....was orchestrated by the Takagi brothers and what a pair of goals they produced!! Wow!! is all I can say. After seeing an earlier effort crash back off the cross bar,the first goal was a free kick won by Yoshiaki Takagi maybe five yards outside the box. He waved away all the oncomers took the kick himself, up and over the wall into the top corner and left the goalie rooted to the spot... 17 years old ladies and gentlemen!! Before the game there was a presentation for the previous weeks Goal Of The Week for J2 given to a Yokohama player for what was a cracking goal. The second Takagi goal (this time the older Toshiyuki) will be a tough one to beat for this weeks best. He recieved the ball on the far corner of the Yokohama box and started to work his way across the top of the box looking for a shooting opportunity, he dummied one defender putting him on his backside and instantaneously SLAMMED the ball into the top corner past the diving keeper!! Absolute Roy of The Rovers goal the kind you dream about when you`re a kid. Verdy`s first point of business if at all possible should be to hang on to these two for as long as they can.

|Er..shout about it like the other Takagi!!|

Looks like Taira Inoue might get a trot this weekend and probably the Takagi brothers will both play and Kikuoka will return. Iio has been quality lately and it`s a shame to see him out as he has really been putting a shift in recently. He was live and dangerous against Gifu and on another night could have had a hat trick (which probably would be his first ever I imagine). Kawano has got on my bloody nerves this season, for a guy with an abundance of talent he has spent far too much time being booked, moaning and suspended. He hit the heights against Mito earlier in the season when he was virtually unplayable but has done his reputation no favours this year. Yoshiaki Takagi in no way looks out of place in the first team and looks like he could be some player, very steady player not as flashy as his older brother but seems closer to the finished article.
"Goal Machine" will be sorely missed especially considering Inoue is likely to replace him. Of course Oguro has now gone to FC Tokyo so without him to worry about who knows??
|GM will probably be out and about on his Pimped Up Scooter this weekend, give him a wave if you see him!!|

Could be intersesting to see if Verdy do go belly up this winter if this has any effect on Machida. If Verdy cease to exist, then Machida Zelvia might get a boost being a Tokyo team that isn`t FC Tokyo. Maybe, maybe not as having lived in or around Machida City from 2000 to 2007 and never met a single FC Machida (as they were) or Machida Zelvia fan; they could be destined to stay as lowly supported as they currently are.
I`d like to see it but, on the whole I just don`t think Tokyo is a "football city" as of 2010. Baseball is King in the Capital unfortunately,The Yomiuri Giants draw 40,000 five days a week and even an average team like Yakult regularly get into the high teens.. FC Tokyo can get 25,000 on a good day with a big team coming to town, Verdy even in J1 only averaged about 14,000 and even this figure is boosted by the big away followings of Urawa, Marinos and such like. Maybe Machida can change a few peoples way of thinking and they will definately have turned a few heads with last nights derby win. All credit to them, they turned up, did a job and took the spoils.
