R19 Same Result - Different Game


FC Gifu 0 - 0 Roasso Kumamoto (ht 0-0)

For the second successive week Gifu could only manage a nil-all draw but this week the performance on the field was far from pretty. Roasso came to Gifu with determination to win the game but it seems that Gifu are still being bogged down by the pressure of playing at home, even if it was only in front of a pultry 2000 odd spectators.
Last week Gifu were unlucky not to win but this week it was the opposite. Their passes were intercepted left, right, and centre and although they almost pulled off a last minute winner they didn`t offer much for the opposition GK all night.
The one positive point was again their defense and the performance of GK Suguru Hino.

In other results Mito and Tokushima gained impressive wins to be within reach of Gifu on the table whereas Kusatsu won their third game in a row (the first time ever) to jump even further ahead.
This sunday Gifu play Yokohama away. Both teams are struggling at the moment so it should be an interesting match. A Gifu loss would see them most likely slip down to 13th or so on the table....

Next game June 14th (away) vs Yokohama FC

atleast you don't conceded any, which is a good thing :) avoiding defeat is also important.

Hey, what do you think about Kuranuki probably coming to Gifu? he would be a marvellous addition, wouldn't he?

Ah well, at least another point in the bag.

Could you update the league list on the right of the page? It's like 8 matches late. :P

...Kuranuki?? Kyoto Sanga??
Hmmm... I haven`t heard about that rumour yet Kaare. Would definitely be good to get another steady player for the midfield, especially considering it's a bit of a problem area at the moment...

and Arne mate, sorry! Been busy studying lately haven't had too much spare time but I'll get onto it after tomorrows game with Yokohama!
