R8 vs Tokyo Verdy

FC Gifu 0 - 1 Tokyo Verdy (ht 0-0)

I don't know what it is about Tokyo Verdy. They sit at the bottom of the table playing unispiring football until they hit us and then they play us...
It happened last year, and now this year too.
We played like rubbish, and although a draw wouldn't have been too unfair, Tokyo definitely deserved the win more than us.

The atmosphere at Meadow (the new ground for the rest of the year) was pretty uninspiring. Although we are literally about three metres away from the players, without the drums and flags (banned because the grounds in a residential area), the fans couldn't get into the game as much as hoped and the game brought back memories of the Tokai league era...

Anyway, enough about that.
Time to get me tickets and head up to Chiba this weekend for the game against JEF!

R7 vs Avispa Fukuoka

Avispa Fukuoka 0 - 2 FC Gifu

Gifu picked up where they left off last week with a good 2-0 win over Fukuoka to win away for the first time this year.
Gifu dominated in the first half and Nagayoshi was awarded with his first J2 goal.
In the second half Satou knocked in a corner and then withheld Fukuoka to record the win.

This week, those evil green bastards from Tokyo...
Can Gifu win three in a row??
Or will Verdy cause more heartache for the team???

All will be revealed at Nagaragawa Meadow this weekend!

R5 vs Consadole Sapporo

FC Gifu 3 - 0 Consadole Sapporo (ht 0-0)

Gifu finally awoke from their slumber and after withstanding the Sapporo storm in the first half, they came back to register two goals through Nishikawa, and a cracker from Shimada.

Next week... yet another trip down south, this time against Avispa Fukuoka who were held to a 0-0 draw with Tokyo Verdy last week.

Will be interesting to see how we go in this game.
