Much praise goes out to the Northern boys as they knocked off 3 J1 squads and put a bit of a scare to the 2005 champs. It signified the last game for Masaaki Yanagishita who leaves the coaching reins to former Omiya headman Toshiya Miura. I'm sure we haven't seen the last of Yanagishita.

Yokohama FC. It seems the heir to the Flugel name is in financial straits, according to Nikkan Sports http://www.nikkansports.com/soccer/p-sc-tp0-20061229-136296.html
