Kamiyama – 5 Didn’t do anything horribly wrong, but also didn’t make any saves of note. For someone his size and confidence he should be much more commanding at corners and crosses.
Wada – 5 Always plays very narrow when in defence and this opens up the pitch for attacks and crosses. Not used enough in attack, specifically by Suzuki Jun who seemed like he wouldn’t pass to him.
Tatsunori – 5 Running out of steam a bit. Must be hard to keep running when you know you’re down, but that is his only real skill. Outclassed for the important first goal.
Daiki – 5 Sendai were without their best striker but he still looked unable to cope at times.
Kobara – 5 Will be good at J2 level, but that is his level. Needed more aerial presence as the tallest defender
Suzuki Jun – 5 If he put as much energy into tackling as he did into shouting at the full backs we’d have a player. Was often playing behind the defence in some sort of ambitious quaterback role.
Sueyoshi – 4 Offered nothing really. Taken off at half-time and will probably be a substitute until J2.
Hideya – 5 He will always get 6-7 goals in a season from his eye for goal, but is a luxury player for the rest of the time. Doesn’t help much, and doesn’t stretch defences. One good shot on goal.
Jogo – 5 When the going is tough he disappears. Was also shouting at others when he is the striker who has failed to score enough this season.
Naruoka – 4 Still trying to do flick passes, back heels and scorpian kicks. None have worked all season. The three players of Jogo Hideya and Naruoka have technique in spades, but don’t help at a more base level.
Shigematsu – 6 Was our best attacker, but is the opposite of what he is playing with. Needs 2-3 others who will run as much as him to stretch defences.
Nakamachi – 5 Came on and did almost nothing. The guy’s head must be a mess. Will start next week I guess.
Yutaka – 5 One good free-kick, but it is looking increasingly likely I’ll be right that he won’t get a goal this season.
Asano – 5 Maybe too much to get the team up for a 3rd win in a row, but the season is now over. Please start playing players who will get us out of J2 next season, not loanees and players who want to leave.
