Supporters were allowed back into J.League stadiums over the weekend, and we went right to the source, with two (well, three actually) of them joining Sam and Ben: Kawasaki correspondent Neil Debnam, who watched Frontale beat Kashiwa at Todoroki on Saturday night; and our Yokohama F.Marinos man Stuart Woodward (with a cameo from Sean Galbraith), who was at the Nissan Stadium on Sunday for the visit of FC Tokyo.
Part 1 with Neil on what it was like to be at Todoroki, and Kawasaki's fruitful week runs to 39:29, then Sam and Ben discuss joint table toppers Urawa's home win over struggling Kashima.
Stuart pops on from 44:35, then from the 1:19:10 mark Ben and Sam conclude the Matchday 4 wrap with away wins for Nagoya and Gamba Osaka over Cerezo Osaka and Shimizu respectively, and the draws at Oita, Yokohama FC, Shonan and Tosu.
