Shinoda preparing Nagai for 2010

Fukuoka University's and Avispa's designated supertalent Kensuke Nagai is on his way to get a real part of the team. Coach Shinoda gave the Kitakyushu-born alot of playing time for a designated player in the last two games against Tokushima Vortis and Ehime FC. Nagai played 80 minutes in the games (35 at home, 45 at Ehime). He didn't score a goal, but nobody expect it at the moment. We are all just happy to see him on the pitch.
Shinoda is preparing the 20-year old slowly for the upcoming season, when Nagai will sign a contract at Avispa.
It's a good idea from Shinoda to give him this playing time and the whole Avispa-fanbase hope, that he always will be at the squad for the last games.
We have nothing to lose this season anyway, so give him the minutes he and we fans are waiting for!
Nagai gave his debut at home against FC Gifu on 30th may (0:1)

Nice move from Nagai against Tokushima

[J2-R39] Avispa 2-0 Sendai

A good performance at home again! ... and we beated the league-leader ...again!!!
Vegalta played also pretty good, so it was a tight game, but in the end we won the game.
The really curios thing...Kurobe scored a goal!!! But Kurobe wasn't the best on this sunny sunday afternoon. "Grandpa" Kiyo Kudo assisted both goals and played more than a great game.
Yusuke Tanaka scored the 2:0 and his 8th goal of the season.
Vegalta really pushed in the second half to score a goal, but we managed to come out clean.
Two mistakes in the defence gave us the win and important three points.
Long time-injured Takanori Nakajima celebrated his comeback in this game!

The operation will be held at the Fukuoka City Hospital.

[J2-R36] Avispa 0-1 Shonan

What a game, gentlemens and what a lucky win for Shonan!
That was an awsome game from both teams and no one deserved to win this fight!
We played great and bravely against one of the the top-teams.
Not only today, but we really show really nice football in the last games. This lose was only a little mistake today and just big luck for Shonan.
When we can hold this level we play at the moment, maybe we can finish in Top 10.
I'm pretty optimistic, because that was a big, big show today!

Thank you guys, you were great!
