Just the six J1 games from the weekend to review, but still plenty of great goals and talking points from another top flight matchday.
After a brief ACL and Emperor's Cup status check off the top, we cover wins for Hiroshima, Shonan and Kobe in Part 1 (to 40:20), then chat about the Kashima vs Sendai draw, and victories for Sapporo and FC Tokyo against the bottom two.

Jonny Nicol guests as we piece together the J-Talk Best XI from the first half of the J1 season.
After a brief news and notes roundup at the start of the episode (to 13:00), we go from back to front on the pitch, beginning with goalkeeper and our four-man defence (to 37:31).
Then we stock the midfield and attack in our 4-3-3 formation, with perhaps a couple of controversial selections throughout the team, but hopefully you'll find this an enjoyable listen - it was certainly a lot of fun for the three of us during recording.

It was a hectic last weekend in J2, but Stuart Smith is back at the controls to guide you through Kyoto's rise to the J2 summit, Tochigi forgetting the rules of fair play, a ghost goal in Chiba, and the sad exit of a J2 manager.
In "Short Corner", Mike Innes gives you the lowdown on the Emperor's Cup 1st round proper. ** Spoiler alert, Honda FC are up to their old tricks **
We'd all like to thank all of you that listen, interact and support us here. We really appreciate it. Enjoy the the show!!
