2007 Preview-Tokushima Vortis

2006 Season 8 wins 11 ties 29 losses 43 goals 92 goals against -49

They're bad.....really, really bad. And the sad thing is, Tokushima Vortis could improve alot from last year's tragic campaign and still be really bad.

Vortis said goodbye to their second leading scorer Jorginho as well as their late season playmaker, former Verdy man Jun Tamano. Starting keeper Norio Takahashi.....out.

What will make or break the season is the collection of foreign talent, including Cerezo rental Andre, young forward Cleberson, and Ponte Preta veteran Da Silva. The defense was shored up with a couple of J2 outcasts, Jungo Konno from Mito Hollyhock and former Verdy defender Yukihiro Aoba.

I don't think it's gonna be pretty for Vortis again
