We'll get to the big upset in a minute..........
Hochi Yomiuri is reporting that Rui Ramos might opt not to renew his contract and let his former teammate and current Verdy head coach Tetsuji Hashiratani take over the reigns of the newly (soon) minted J1 squad. It has been a very long year Ramos with his woeful beginning and the loss of his mother, so leaving after mission accomplished would seem to be the smart thing.
Two Yokohama FW's to Fukuoka? Nikkan Sports is reporting that U-20 beanpole Mike Haavenar is possibly headed to Avispa for a one year loan.
Also recently released striker Tatsuhiko Kubo might end up in Avispa as well
I believe that was Hochi so take it with a grain of salt.
Finally, big congratulations go to Ehime FC who went to Urawa and upset the defending J League, Emperor's Cup, and ACL champs 2-0 off the glorious foot of Toshiya Tanaka. Great job and good luck to them against Yokohama FC.
