Thespa had a gritty 4 shot performance against an equally gritty Cerezo side....who also had 4 shots. Unfortunately Thespa failed........Anyhow.GO THESPA!
DF Fukuda Tsuchiya Togawa Sugawara
MF ZE LUIS HATTORI
FW Hulk Funakoshi
BENCH: Takagi, Tomisawa,Nagai, Shibasaki, IIO
Frankly the bench leaves me speechless. Hiramoto, Saito, Inoue, and Hiroyama were all left back in Tokyo so they could take Senor NoShots instead. I guess we should also get used to seeing the Brazilian Buffalo playing out of position on the wing for the full 90 minute shift. The good news is that Yoshihara has a chance to steal the keeper position away from Takagi or at least pressure him to play better.
Of note for the home squad is Verdy signee Leonardo, who was with the squad for about 20 seconds.
Anyhow, well see how the team does today with the more eclectic lineup.
