After Yokohama claimed their 4th J1 title, and first in 15 years, on Saturday, Sean Carroll, Sam Robson and Stuart Woodward guest as we celebrate their stirring achievement.
F.Marinos chat with Stuart dominates Part 1 - his enjoyment of the day and post game celebrations, Ange Postecoglou's impact on the club and how they will approach 2020, but also events on the pitch on Saturday of course, as Yokohama withstood some early FC Tokyo physicality to ultimately cruise to a championship-sealing 3-0 win (to 32:53).
After we bid Stuart farewell, Sam, Sean and I discuss the two big games at the foot of the table that saw Tosu survive despite losing at Shimizu thanks to Matsumoto's late equalizer against Shonan - and we look ahead to Bellmare's playoff against Tokushima this Saturday - before we run through all of the other games from J1 Matchday 34, with snippets on each top flight club as we close the book on the 2019 J1 season.
On this, the occasion of our 300th episode, I'd like to thank all of our guests for making themselves available to chat about this league we all love, and of course, as I always say, thanks to you for listening wherever you are. But the biggest thanks of all has to go to our supporters on Patreon, who have enabled us to grow in 2019 and made it possible to launch the Extra Time podcast.
