Massage from president

Avispa-President Tsuzuki (l.) spoke about the 1/3 of the season.
Many excuses are in it, but that's normal for a team in this situation.
He is thankful for all the support from the fans and the sponsors. He promise that the players giving 100% and fight with all their power in every game. But he also knows, that the last results were worse...with no excuse.
Tsuzuki said also, that the whole team and staff analyzed the last results very carefully and try to change the training after that.
Every player and every staff member has to change and work more harder in the trainings-sessions...and so on.

Well, if they analyzed all the failures so carefully, the game on saturday against Gifu should be no problem...

...we'll see...

Tokyo had a good start and had an 2:0-advantage on their side, but Bruno Quadros was send off by the Ref in the 57th minute and then Kawasaki start their offensive-engine and rolled over Tokyo and took 3 points home.

Hokuto was subed in for his good old friend Sota Hirayama in the 75th minute.

Games, goals and minutes on the pitch will be on it.
It will be placed under the SUPER Avispa! Goalcounter.
Just J1 statistics. Nabisco Cup and Emperor's Cup statistics will be in entries.

[J2-R17] Cerezo 4-1 Avispa

Well, the hellGAMES are over, but the hellDAYS still go on in Fukuoka.
Cerezo's Takashi Inui bombed us out of Nagai Stadium with 4 goals! 3 of them in just 8 minutes!
Only Jumbo could score the equalizer in the 53rd minute.
The only good news today is that Wellington celebraited his comeback in the starting 11, where we need him badly, and not just as a sub.

Best Goal Award for Taka

Yutaka Takahashi 's Goal against Yokohama FC on J2s 5th day in 2009 was J.League's goal of the month April, so Taka won the J.LEAGUE BEST GOAL AWARD - March.

Taka received the award yesterday, before the Kyushu Derby against Sagan Tosu

[J2-R14] Avispa 0-0 Sagan

We played a dissapointing 0:0 against Sagan Tosu at our 2nd Kyushu Derby this season.
Our midfield is not the best at all without Wellington and a benched Suzuki at the moment.
Yamagata must go back to defence where he's alot better.
Just 5 shots over 90 minutes and just 2 goals in the last 6 games...nothing works without a good midfield.

Starting 11
GK: Yoshida
DF: Miyamoto, Nagira, Tanaka, Nakajima
MF: Jogo, Yamagata, Miyahara, Nakaharai
FW: Takahashi, Okubo

Bench: Rokutan, Kugisaki, Suzuki, Okamoto, Yusuke


60' - Nakaharai -> Okamoto
66' - Yamagata -> Suzuki
81' - Tanaka -> Yusuke
