R18 vs Avispa Fukuoka

Avispa Fukuoka 0 - 1 FC Gifu (ht 0-0)

FC Gifu started off the second part of the season with a well fought victory over Avispa in Fukuoka. Fukuoka created plenty of chances, but couldn't finish them off. Gifu played pretty well throughout the game too but unlike Avispa managed to squeek a in a goal to claim the three points and move up to 13th in the table. The goal was produced by great dribble and passing by Shimada and Takagi and finished off by Satou who calmly passed around the keeper to score the match winner.
Afterwards the Fukuoka fans, angry at not being able to win in 10 games held a protest and wouldn't budge from their seats until the Fukuoka managers etc came out and said a few words... ahhh.. it's good to win away!
As for Level 5 Stadium, it's a pretty impressive stadium. They even sell Blue Whale Kebabs... which were pretty good... err I had to try for scientific purposes...
Anyway the win gave Gifu it's first 2-game winning streak this year, and a win against the struggling Mito on wednesday could give the team its first 3-game winning streak and 3-game home winning streak in the J2. But unfortunately, Mito can never be trusted to give in easily...
Should be a good game.

Hey richy! thanks for your comment :)

It's not an easy situation for us, but it's seems like that we are really unlucky in the last games.
For example, we hit the crossbar 2 times against cerezo and after you,we seemed a bit unlucky too.

I saw a video on youtube where the fans was really frustrated after the game and Kengo, our megaphone man, seemed to tried to chill the situation.

I'm really sorry about the food-situation, but i think every fan-community got a good and a bad side and maybe there were a lot of frustration of the Avispa-"Fans", that they still scored no goal against this "little" team of FC Gifu.
I say sorry for that and i hope you had a good time at Fukuoka beside that situation :)

Greetings and all the best to Gifu!

Hey mate, it was great. I had a good time. I just thought the food situation was a little strange, thats all.

Anyway, Im sure soon that Avispas fortunes will change!

Good luck!

A 2-win run! Well well, looks like FC Gifu is slowly but steadily producing results here. :) It's good to see the largely inexperienced squad also get some points for their efforts, once they get more matches under their belts thing'll become better and better.
