After one of the most dramatic and action-packed matchdays of this, or any, J1 season, Sam and Ben reconvene to wrap it all up.

We begin with Shonan's win in the battle of the bottom over Kobe, chat about the huge derby wins for Cerezo Osaka and Hiroshima, and the top three all slipping up on the same weekend, with VAR playing a huge part in almost every result and a couple of unsavoury incidents that could linger for a while to come.

May 17, 2022

It was yet another terrific weekend of J1 action, but there was no where else we could start this episode than in Glasgow, where Ange Postecoglou's Celtic side clinched the SPL title last midweek, and lifted the trophy in front of the Parkhead faithful on the weekend, and Jamie McCourt (who was there to bask in the glory) and Stuart Woodward guest in Part 1 to talk about the remarkable turnaround the former F.Marinos boss has performed at the club, and the impact their four Japanese players have made.

We also chat about Yokohama's performances in the ACL group stage, their emphatic weekend win over Shonan, and their embarrassment of attacking riches that makes them strong title contenders in 2022 (to 49:00).

Then in Part 2 we run through the other games from J1 Matchday 13, including convincing wins at the top for Kashima and Kawasaki, Kobe breaking their duck in some style at long last, and Maxi's Moan at FC Tokyo (becoming a recurring segment, we know...).

Just in time for another busy J2 & J3 weekend, the boys are back with a full review of the most recent lower-league action.

In Part 1, Jon Steele and James Taylor focused on two of the biggest J2 games of the previous round: Niigata's conventionally-thrilling win over Tokyo Verdy, and Kanazawa's thrilling-but-in-a-slightly-different-way victory at home against Yamaguchi.

In Part 2, Jon rounds up all of the other J2 matches from Round 15, before getting back together with James to preview the upcoming Round 16 fixtures.

After that, who else but Mike 'The Magic' Innes is on hand to review all of the J3-centric Emperor's Cup qualifying games from last weekend, & preview all of the third-tier league matches coming up on Sunday (Round 9).

Hope everyone enjoys the show, and thanks as always for the support!

Sensational Sanfrecce stole the headlines with a stomping of top flight leaders Kashima on Saturday, a superb win for Michael Skibbe's side as their intriguing mix of dynamic youngsters and grizzled veterans continue to thrive, and top billing on this week's episode is their reward.

Next we move on to the results for the four ACL clubs who returned to J1 action last weekend, try to make sense of the spell Tosu hold over FC Tokyo, and round up the rest of the Matchday 12 action, finishing up with Robson's Rant on the late game shenanigans at Cerezo Osaka.
