Episode 339 - J1 Matchday 24

October 27, 2020

Unfortunately we had to begin this episode by talking about some disturbing recent events involving J.League players off the pitch, with the latest transgressor, Ademilson of Gamba Osaka, most probably costing himself his job after his DUI arrest on Sunday.

That soured what had been a terrific Gamba win the previous day, with the man himself scoring the winner at the death but then taking his celebrations way, way, too far, and as we move on to events on the pitch we begin with the game at the Panasonic Stadium, before moving on to Cerezo Osaka's defeat at suddenly resurgent Urawa - those two results leaving the Osaka clubs knotted together on 48 points. Next up Sam sets Ben down on the couch for a therapy session after FC Tokyo's profligacy (and later, utter stupidity) cost them dearly at home against Yokohama F.Marinos (all that runs to 44:17).

A review of the wins for Nagoya, Kashima and Sapporo follows, before we wrap up the episode with the draw between Tosu and Shonan and a look ahead to upcoming top flight fixtures.

Kawasaki continue to roll, and after we might have been accused of starting to take their amazing season for granted, we right that wrong by hailing the champions-elect and their phenomenal performance - the latest example a 3-0 home win over Nagoya.

We move on to an excellent week for both Osaka clubs, before Ben has a sook about the officials in the Yokohama FC v FC Tokyo game, and we give props to Sapporo and Shonan after much needed wins, and also Urawa, who hit Sendai for six.

#Apologies for the audio quality this week, we weren't recording in a motorway tunnel, honestly.

A couple of crunch games involving top six teams dominated the J1 Matchday 21 fixture list, and we lead this episode with the narrow victories for Gamba Osaka and Nagoya that further tightened things up in the Scramble for Second Spot.

Kawasaki's home win and Urawa's smash and grab in Tosu follow, before we sink our teeth into the goal-fests elsewhere.
