This is with a depleted squad that we came into our first game of the season on this Saturday 22nd August, counting young 3 players making their debut and Owen Monaghan starting his first Cosmo game since Liverpool last won the league in 1990. Adding to that the suspension of Matt Hulen, a couple of injuries and captain Anto Garreau deciding to organise drinks at KO time. It is therefore without surprise that Nippon dominated throughout, created chances after chances so this is completely against the run of play and with a maigre 75% possession that we opened the scoring following a Dom O’Shea header that Hutch tapped in after it had hit the woodwork. Nippon’s domination became even more obvious from then on so we were lucky to score another just before half time, Hutch getting on the scoresheet again thanks to a left-footed half volley straight into the top left corner. Our opposition came back onto the pitch in the second half with even greater intentions to the extent that they managed to secure a shot on target late on and if it wasn’t for Ronnie’s only save of the game, it could have easily been 4-1. Indeed, two quick counterattacks saw Tim and Shotton putting the game to bed earlier on, despite the many chances created by the Japanese. All the best to Nippon for the rest of the season.
First game of the season against SCC Firsts at Dempsey and the FC NIPPON start the game in a compact 4-3-3. 1st half is 0-2 2nd half is 0-2 Total score 0-4 SCC has also taken a lot of long balls and kicking each other. . However, the long ball fits in the SCC FW, and then our line goes down and the defense time also continue..First half was an even affair without too many clear chances either way. But 2nd half FCNIPPON made so many chances but could not get score. The flow of the game have changed if we was taking scores,, Below is our Japanese report translated from google. First half Even though it fits into the opponent's longball in the first minute and falls on the opponent's FW Henry's chest, he shoots out of the frame. The early stage SCC turns the ball behind and leaves it in the midfield, either because he also put pressure on from before, he uses a lot of long balls and kicks into the back of his own team. However, since the ball fits in the opponent FW, the line goes down and the defense time continues, but since the stuffing is done at the last end, the opponent does not have the decision machine so far. · First half 5 minutes From Nanai ball cut to too much. It was about 25 meters, so I should have shot, but I pass it to the side. I'm sorry I wish I had to lower the opponent's line by shooting first. · About the first half ten minutes Cut the ball in the middle. Into the useless pass, we can not hit the shoot with the rushing keeper one-on-one, to the free ouch. Regrettably post beside. · About the first half 20 minutes The opponent corner kick. He hit the heading from the top to the big FW and lost points. 0-1 · About the first half 25 minutes We also cut the ball at a high position without losing here, Don Pischa cross from Mr. Right Side Hase. Newly subscribed large-size FW Sue heads up and heads up. This was also a regret sideways. · About the first half 30 minutes Cockey-san to Mr. Suue, who left the left side. Shoot is keeper. · Just before the end of the first half I wanted to finish with at least 1-0, but opponent long ball? Well it was, it fits in the opponent large FW, and a loop shoot from the vicinity of Pena. I had an unlucky feeling but I also got a run down here. 0-2 First half of the session. ■ Review of Yas's first half The content of the game is not bad. There is a part that respects the opponent but there is a part that is in the free, and this is a pass mistake that kicks the ball while rushing this ball. The opponent has also taken a lot of long balls and is kicking each other. Even if a long ball is put in and the ball fits into the opponent's FW, it is not being forcibly taken to the shoot from there, but it is deployed to the side by dropping the ball. However, the reason why the ball has not been cut despite the fact that it is in the same hand many times, is not ready for intercepting or taking a second ball. It is necessary to fix this quickly. Also, because it is quick to gather, the ball can not fit unless it is judged within 3 touches. There is space There is a ball in Sue, so we also need a long ball to hurt Sweet, so we need a quick ball. ■ Late Members Members remain unchanged as they are GK Katoen DF Hase, Hippo, Nanai, Daiku MF Uucha, Osu, Og FW Cockey, Suue, Ike Substitution member In the latter half 20 minutes Mr. Hase -> Mr. Kiba Og → Let's stop around 20 minutes in the second half About the second half 25 minutes Suue → Koji About 30 minutes in the latter half Sugi (footed) → Kang (during sprain) ■ Second half Start five minutes, pulled out to the opponent FW? Whether it was, it was deployed from the side to the center and was struck by middle and lost. 0-3 · Around the latter half ten minutes Self-directed side change from the left side to the right side and it was expanded to the center as it was and suffered a goal. 0-4 Still there are many opportunities and there is still a feeling of being irritated FC NIPPON. to not give up! The opponent leg ceased from around the latter half of 15 minutes, so there was no scary scenes. · Around the second half 20 minutes Cut the ball at a high position. The opponent's defender is thin. I thought that it was a development from Ike to Mr. Ike. . Mr. Ike also says Central Cockey's cross. I win the battle with Cockey's defender and trace my heart cleanly, one to one with Kipper! I have done this! ! I thought it but regretly I went up to the bar. · Around the latter half 25 minutes Although attacked, the attack of FC continues still I'm sorry I forgot what kind of expansion, but the keeper came out in front and I'm garglear empty. Someone at a big chance, a whiff shoot at the same time as a crisp sound. Of course it is cleared. Someone forgotten, but the culprit please give me a name. · About the last half hour I will still go again FCNIPPON. From the short corner Cockey san cut into a minus cross. Fit Nanai 's free foot with free, but also regretly lying next to the post. · About the latter half 35 minutes Cut the opponent 's clear! It should be decided if there is only one DF before, but it passes to Mr. left foot Daiku. Offside. · Just before the end A free kick got a foul nearly in the middle of about 20 meters! Kicker Uoooo. I went inside the frame of Post Girigiri, but the opponent keeper nice save. Game over Defeat at 0-4. ■ Game summary It is a complete defeat when I look at the result. However, I could not attract the flow because I could not decide the big opportunity I had many times. Also, when I cut it overall I am kicking and I can not calm the ball. In the middle more, I will face more, and if you do not do it, you will need more to rebuild. The next section is Aioli. Victory anyway! I think I was beaten because the ball was turned but I was running down. I will step up with practice and individual training and keep winning next week! Let's do it.
