Ah yes, the proverbial sister kisser. Verdy outshot and outfouled the might men of Sendai but could only come up with a tie. Hulk was off on his 9 chances but the big Brazilian sidekick, Diego managed to enter the account late to salvage a point at home and steal 2 away from Vegalta. Some bad news out of the game is that Hulk picked up another yellow.....thus making him ineligible for the Ehime game for sure and potentially the Cerezo game as well. Is that the last we've seen of Hulk in green?
1-1 and a little closer to the promised land.
Yokohama FC watch----- The land of misfit Verdy players finally scraped a point for erstwhile manager Julio Leal after a cross from Atsuhiro Miura found the silky foot of Shingo Nejime for a 1-1 tie against freefalling Kashiwa Reysol. Yokohama FC managed to break a record.....going 634 minutes without finding the back of the net. The former record was held by the Urawa Reds.
News out of Brazil is that big striker and former Verdy man Washington is NOT going to be in the J League next year. It seems the J League holders are close to making a deal with Fluminense (Fluminese?) to ship the grumpy goalhanger off to Brazil.
It's getting close.......off to the brand new Omiya NACK5 stadium to see the finest girl in Japan after her facelift.
