R11 vs Kataller Toyama

Kataller Toyama 3 - 0 FC Gifu (ht 1-0)

Toyama. A beautiful town surrounded by mountains and sea. Also has a team that can give us a good ass-whipping even though they were only promoted to the J2 this year.
It was the first time that the two teams had faced each other, and this was when Gifu was supposed to show that they were their seniors in the J2.
Shots at goal were pretty evenly split but where Gifu lacked ideas in front of the box and a finishing touch, Toyama didn't.
So Gifu has the worst defense in the J2. Youth and inexperience is costing the team dearly. The same can also be said about up front.
Next game is the "Green Derby" in Nagaragawa. Can Gifu give their fans something to smile about??

I went through Toyama last year, Richy, and thought it was a total and utter armpit of the place, entirely surrounded (perhaps not surprisingly) by zip factories. Did I just catch it on a bad day?

Mate, Japan sea, Nihon Alps, traditional housing...
This place is beautiful! (Just block out the factories and hope for sunny weather!)
I love the Japan Sea coast though... anywhere around there looks great to me!!
