Currently Verdy is at one of the National Team training grounds (I think) having a mini-camp. The team was fortunate to get an 11 day break because of scheduling nd the bye.
Thursday saw them take on dynamic lads of Ryutsu Keizai University who are currently in the lower eschelon of JFL........their slogan (I think I wrote it before) is BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME. I'm not sure if they are speaking to their opponents or their team.
Anyhow it was a 45 minute/30 minute X 2 set, which saw Verdy come out victorious. The Ryutsu site is reporting a 1-0 score, while Verdy is reporting a 5-0 score. Guys who (allegedly) scored for Verdy include Saito(Huzzah), Anailson, Basilio(Hey he's not dead after all!), Hiroyama, and mystery Mateus. I don't know much about Mateus but I did see a guy with long hair in a Verdy road uniform at either the Consadole or Shonan match scrimmaging with the reserves. I'm not sure if that's him or not. Other news coming out of camp is that Ze Luis is with the team scrimmaging and Seitaro Tomisawa is also getting some action after a long, long injury.
Camp wraps up soon and Verdy prepares for Vissels visit on Wednesday. Ajinomoto 7pm, I won't be in attendance but I'll try to catch the game on NTV at 1:45 am. Good Times!
