vs. Sanfrecce Hiroshima (ratings)   Leave a comment

Kamiyama – 7 Made 2 good saves, the one from Mikic late on might put him back as regular first choice.

Wada – 7 I still want Kim to play, but Wada does well and is regularly the furthest forward on the left wing. Tucks in pretty narrow when defending.

Tatsunori – 6 Had an easier game than Wada with the left winger, but was quieter in attack.

Daiki – 8 My Man of the Match. A return to form he was getting in the way of everything. Avispa conceded when he was face down on the pitch having gone down a little easily. By strict implementation of the rules the game could have been stopped for a head injury.

Kobara – 7 There was a National Team striker on the pitch and together with Daiki he kept him very quiet.

Suzuki Jun – 7 Terrible new hair-cut, OK performance. Needs to re-invent himself as a more defensive player and add harder tackling to his game.

Sueyoshi – 7 Scored a good goal, and got around the pitch well. promoising middle two for J2 if Nakamachi doesn’t commit to Avispa.

Matsuura – 7 Really helped in defence today, but still almost refuses to go past his full-back. Not sure if he has been told not to as he did it in the first game of the season but not since.

Jogo – 7 Always looks much better with a real striker in the team. Had a couple of chances but took too long on the 1-on-1 and did very well with his lob. Assist for the first goal, ran well.

Naruoka – 6 Scored quite fortuitously when he was about to be taken off. Definite class, but shouldn’t be asked to play on the wing. If he could play with 10% more energy he’d be a top player.

Shigematsu – 6 Strangely didn’t seem to have the legs he had at the start of the season. Probably should have made more of his chance at starting but was generally good.

Nakamachi – 6 On for Shigematsu. Brave but correct decision to put him on the bench. Hasn’t looked in form recently, and didn’t change much when he came on.

Yusuke – 6 On for Matsuura. Could have helped at the end by trying to break into the corners when Hiroshima had pushed up.

Hideya – 6 Held the ball up pretty well, nothing special.

Asano – 6 Should be congratulated for the win, and for the brave decisions he made with the starting line-up, but it is too late. We are already relegated. With that in mind he shouldn’t be playing loan players and guys who won’t be with us next season.
