Matchday 9 Review –Tokyo Verdy 0-3 Mito Hollyhock

Ouch, that’s all I can say with this result against Mito Hollyhock on Saturday, this is one of the worse results I’ve ever seen by a Verdy team.
To the game, it was all on way in the first 15 minutes with Mito having at least 4 decent chances to score, but on 24 minutes, Verdy had a great chance after the Mito GK came out to clear the ball and he was left sprinting back to his goal only to see Hiramoto’s chance go wide of the post, the Mito GK looked very relieved, Mito’s first goal came on 36 minutes after the ball was played up the middle of the pitch, Shibasaki though he saved it but it went under/through his legs and it fell to Imase to score even after some last ditch defending to make it 1-0 Mito, the 2nd goal came from a left hand side corner, no one went with Funatani to stop him heading the ball – he headed it towards goal and went through the hands of Shibasaki to make it 2-0 Mito, on the 68th minute Pinheiro had a collision with the Mito GK and was unable to continue, Alan had to be stretchered off, don’t know how long he will be out, but he will be a big miss to the team, Verdy had to bring on Kenji Kitawaki in Alan’s place, the 3rd goal was awful passing by Verdy and Yuzawa ran through the Verdy DF and slot the ball past Shibasaki to make it 3-0 Mito, overall what a awful performance, let’s hope the next game will be better
