Episode 355 - J1 Preview Part 4: The Final Five

February 24, 2021

We've done it! With this episode, we've now previewed all 20 J1 clubs before the season kicks off on Friday night. Jonny Nicol guests for a look ahead at how Gamba Osaka, Nagoya, Cerezo Osaka, Kobe and Hiroshima might get on in 2021.

We begin with a look back at Saturday's Super Cup, which saw Kawasaki add another trophy to their burgeoning collection (to 12:20), then Gamba are the first club we preview (to 31:50), followed by Nagoya (to 53:40) - how will the ACL affect them both?

In Part 2 Cerezo are up first (to 1:09:30), then perennial disappointments Kobe (to 1:26:35), before we wrap up with Hiroshima (to 1:36:30).

Finally, we run through some teams who might surprise - for good or bad reasons - in the new season, and some players to watch.
