Tochigi 2 – 0 Avispa
I was drinking in a bar and left to watch the last 20 minutes of this game and was pissed off at the sorry performance from Avispa.
I can’t imagine how pissed off the 30-odd fans who had gone to watch the game had been.
Going from Fukuoka to Tochigi on a week-day to see us concede a second goal to the same old bull-shit of a corner being crossed into the 6-yard box and met unchallenged by our hopeless zone defence within 2 minutes.
We played 3 up front as Koga became an auxillary striker, but our strikers are not the problem. We have scored a lot of goals this season.
We have no midfield and even a 5 year old can see that. We should have been playing a 2-5-3 formation, and hoping for the best; but instead were still being beaten to the second ball every time in midfield.
It has reached the stage that Maeda is probably going to be looking for a new job.
We have an awesome squad, but his formation of the team and bizarre maintenance of zone defence at corners mean we would lose games to a well organised amateur team.
