After another ripping weekend of top flight action, Alan Gibson and Sam Robson return to the pod to review J1 Matchday 30.
We begin with league leaders Kashima doing just enough to edge past Urawa last Friday, which upped the stakes for FC Tokyo and Yokohama in their games on Saturday, but both claimed impressive away wins to keep pace at the top.
From there, you know the drill, we work our way through the results and down the table, finishing up with the Shizuoka Derby, won in dramatic fashion by Adailton for Iwata (sounds like a fashion label that).
