R27 Stalemate

FC Gifu 0 - 0 Shonan Bellmare (ht 0-0)

Another nil-all halftime, another nil-all draw. Half-time nil-all scores seem to be becoming a bit of a regular occurance lately, these games are ultimately decided in the second half.

Gifu and Shonan both battled hard, both created chances but both went home probably feeling not too happy about the result. For Shonan the loss of Aziel was huge as he definitely adds alot of spark to their attack. In saying that Shonan probably attacked better, particularly in the first half, whereas Gifu made sure that their defense wasn't opened up again like last week against Hiroshima. Nil-all, the game could have gone either way but in the end a draw was a fair result.

This result though saw Gifu drop down another place on the table, and now face a daunting trip up to Sendai next week for their first visit to one of the best footy stadiums in Japan, Yurtec Stadium.

Next game July 26th (away) vs Vegalta Sendai

Hey, cool mate, im sure it will be good for you to be back in nippon for a bit!
As for the Grampus game, Im not sure I'll be around then...
& Id say that Kobe-Kashima would be a better one to watch!
But if you're going tell me and I'll try to make it if I'm free then!
