Lots of stuff fell through the cracks this week so let's get to it!
First off-Highlights from last weeks stinkfest in Shonan.........no highlights of the red cards but some stinkers when it comes to clearance.
Naoki Mihara becomes the 4th player with Verdy connections to put on the shirt of 4th division Fagiano Okayama. Mihara is a 19 year old defender who went through the Verdy youth program before signing with the big club. Mihara never got into the first team so this is a good chance for him to get some competitive footy under his belt.
Verdy took on JEF United reserves and the second string of Yokohama FM this week and had mixed results. Shin Kanazawa and Nozomi Hiroyama tallied three goals between the two of them to up end the Chiba squad 3-1. Yokohama stuck it to the lads in green with a mirror result of 3-1. Hiroyama managed to notch the lone goal for Verdy, begging the question......Does Rui even know Hiroyama is on the team?
Rui gets a vote of confidence
Nikkan sports reports that Verdy's chairman gave Ramos a vote of confidence after the recent three game slump. The chairman said that changing the manager now would make things worse.
Drop below Thespa and I think it would be Okada time.
