Matchday 28 2017 Review – Oita Trinita 0-2 Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 28 2017 Review – Oita Trinita 0-2 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy sealed their second win in 5 days after winning 2-0 away to Oita Trinita after 2 goals from Douglas Vieira early in the first half – it’s great to see the team full of confidence again and 2 wins has really pushed the team back up the table and now see themselves up to 6th place from 11th place before Matchday 26. Let’s have a look at the game, well the first chance of the game was Vieira first goal – it was a cross from Tamura and it was headed by Kajikawa back into the box and the ball fell to Vieira and got a touch to the ball and just got it past Kamifukumoto and just crept over the line to make it 1-0 on the 16th minute – for Vieira’s second goal, it was a ball into the box from Tamura which found Vieira – Vieira clipped the ball and the ball went past the Oita GK and settled into the back of the net to make it 2-0 to Verdy after 26 minutes. Kazushi Mitsuhira had a chance for Oita but the chance went wide, into the second half and Oita had a great chance to score from a corner but Shibasaki was there at the far post stopping Kotegawa’s header to keep a clean sheet. After that the full time whistle went and it was such a good result in the end – 3 points and a clean sheet.

Matchday 28 2017 Preview – Oita Trinita v Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 28 2017 Preview – Oita Trinita v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 28th game of the 2017 season is at Away to Oita Trinita at Oita Bank Dome. Well it seems like yesterday that the season started but the end of the season is only a few months away – 14 games left to be exact, Verdy finally got themselves a win after either drawing or losing their last 7 games, that win really puts a lot of confidence back into the team and hopefully it will bring another 3 points but it will be another very tough game, this time it’s against 9th place Oita Trinita, the last time both teams played each other was really early into the season – Matchday 2 (5th March) where Oita visited Ajinomoto Stadium and it was a win for Verdy thanks to only 1 goal in the game and it was Alan Pinheiro just before half time in front of just under a 6,000 attendance, fingers crossed it’s another win for Verdy after last week’s victory. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Matchday 27 2017 Review – Tokyo Verdy 1-0 Roasso Kumamoto


Matchday 27 2017 Review –Tokyo Verdy 1-0 Roasso Kumamoto

Verdy found themselves with their first win in 7 matches, Verdy’s last win was in at the end of June against Machida Zelvia (Verdy won 4-2), it was all thanks to Douglas Vieira scoring the only goal of the game in the last few minutes to seal all 3 points and boosting the moral and put Verdy up the table. Let’s have a look at the game itself now, it was a good chance for Verdy early on in the game – but Martinez put his header just wide, another good chance for Verdy – after a great ball up the field to Alan Pinheiro but the Kumamoto GK came out and swallowed up the ball and got it away from danger, into the second half and it was another early chance – a lovely cross into the box from Kota Watanabe found the head of Martinez but his header went wide – Verdy were getting close, this time it was a chance for Kumamoto from a Free Kick from about 35 yards out but it went past Shibasaki’s post and wide, it was another chance for Verdy as Watanabe shot from just outside the D and it deflected off a Kumamoto player but the Kumamoto GK pulled off a great save, the Kumamoto GK pulled off another great save after Vieira took a long range shot but Hata in the Kumamoto goal pushed it past the post and then another long range shot which was tipped over the bar, but Hata was beaten with full time approaching, it was a cross from the right hand side from Naoya Tamura, as the ball was coming into the box – Vieira rose above the Kumamoto Defender and Vieira headed the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0 Verdy and the Kumamoto players just fell to the floor in disbelief after conceding so late on when it was looking like they would be getting a point from the game but what a relief if you were a Verdy fan/player/management to get a goal and all 3 points.

Matchday 27 2017 Preview –Tokyo Verdy v Roasso Kumamoto

Verdy’s 26th game of the 2017 season is at Home to Roasso Kumamoto at Ajinomoto Stadium. Well it’s back to Ajinomoto Stadium for Verdy after 2 away games recently with a public holiday game against Roasso Kumamoto, after getting a point against Kanazawa, its another team lower down in J2 with Kumamoto finding themselves in 19th place and 11 points behind Verdy who are currently in 13th place, Verdy travelled to the EGAO Kenko Stadium and came away with a massive defeat – 4-0 was the defeat- ouch – four different players were on the team sheet (Hachikubo, An (Byong Jun), Kamimura and Kuroki) that day, I hope that Verdy get back to winning ways after having such a awful time lately, fingers crossed. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.

Matchday 26 2017 Review – Zweigen Kanazawa 0-0 Tokyo Verdy


Matchday 26 2017 Review – Zweigen Kanazawa 0-0 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy settled for a point away to Zweigen Kanazawa and steadies the ship a little bit with Verdy dropping down the table –Verdy currently in 13th place after having a a torrid time with no win in the last 6 games which saw the team slide down the table from pretty much the top 5 teams all the way down to the current position (13th) – really hope things start turning around and get back to winning ways, let’s have a look at the game, the first chance went to Verdy as a defence splitting pass fell to Alan Pinheiro but the chance was saved by the Kanazawa GK – a decent chance for Verdy early on, it was a chance for Kanazawa after a ball from the midfield was put over the top and the Kanazawa striker tried to chip Shibasaki but went well wide, into the second half, it was Kanazawa with the first chance of the half and it was a 30 yard shot which was palmed away by Shibasaki but when the ball came back down – there was a fight for the ball in the box but somehow Kanazawa got a chance out of it, it was another long shot for Kanazawa but it went wide with the help of a touch of Shibasaki’s hand, next it was a chance for Verdy from a throw in – Verdy sub Daisuke Takagi made the Kanazawa GK make a save to put it past the post, it was end to end stuff as Kanazawa came forward again but the chance went wide after some last ditch tackle from a Verdy defender, Kanazawa almost though they won the game near the end of the second half but the header by Koichi Sato in the box hit the post and it went out for a Verdy throw in – the last chance of the game fell to Kanazawa but the chance went over the bar and that was it, a 0-0 draw.

Matchday 26 2017 Preview – Zweigen Kanazawa v Tokyo Verdy

Verdy’s 26th game of the 2017 season is at Away to Zweigen Kanazawa at Ishikawa Athletics Stadium. It’s not been a great few weeks for the club with only getting 2 points from the last 5 games, I bet it’s not been fun if you’re a Verdy fan/player or on the management team, let’s hope this game against Kanazawa can lift some spirits and get those smiles back on people’s faces with a win, fingers crossed I hope the lads get that for everyone’s sake. Though the odds are in Verdy’s favour – because Verdy have already played Kanazawa in the 2017 season and won 2-1, in matchday 11, Kanazawa travelled to Ajinomoto Nishigaoka and Kanazawa were defeated by 2 goals to 1, it was Kanazawa who scored first just after half time (Koichi Sato 51’) but in the last 15 minutes of the game, it was Akira Ibayashi (78’) and Alan Pinheiro who got the winning goal on the 83rd minute to seal all 3 points. Let’s hope for a victory from the lads. LET’S FIGHT TOWARDS VICTORY.
