I love how a monkey that has been dead since 2014 can still win "Most Handsome Monkey" awards.

That was really sad. 2017, let's try again. Too sad to believe right now, but will always hope.

I have said it every year at the start of the season for the last 10 years. "This is the year of the Carp."

Is it FINALLY happening??

As quickly as it happened, it is lost.

I look forward to the record changing hands back and forth several times this year between Okubo and Sato.

Beating 3 Yokozuna on the way to a title is a pretty fantastic way to do it. Well earned!

Posted in: Hiroshima beats Bellmare 5-0 to secure J.League's 2nd stage See in context

Outstanding performance, smashed all kinds of J.League season records...but knowing Sanfrecce "finals curse" they will inevitably end up losing out in the Championship stage and someone else being crowned 2015 champions.

I'm already preparing myself for the disappointment.

Posted in: Carli Lloyd, Lionel Messi nominated for FIFA goal of year See in context

This award is sadly just a popularity prize of the player involved.

A lot of much more spectacular goals are scored than the winner each year, but the biggest name almost always finds themselves miraculously the winner.

@Peace Out, the actual wording on the messages that got the police onto him was (censored version):

@gokai the captain of the Japan team has been living in Japan since he was 15, and has said that he feels he speaks Japanese better than his speaks English now.

Posted in: England dumped out of Rugby World Cup by Australia See in context

I didn't believe the Wallabies had what it took to win a crunch match like this. The game against Uruguay was just about the worst performance of any team ever to win by such a large margin, so sloppy, thoughtless and undisciplined.

They really got their act together this morning, given us a lot more belief!

Eddie is a guy who can surely write his own contract for whatever comes next, great job done here, and great positive attacking rugby!

Baseball and softball can work if nations take them seriously.

I think squash could work, certainly much moreso than skateboarding, surfing or climbing!

Poppy Hill was one of the kindest most lovely films I have ever seen. The young people I know who saw it really loved it too.

Posted in: Muto to snub Chelsea for Mainz See in context

Much better move for Muto as a player. He could get loaned out by Chelsea to a Belgian club for 4 years, or he could go to Mainz and work hard in Germany like a lot of other successful Japanese players have done, and are doing, and then move on and up on his own terms when the time is right.

Back to usual life for Carp after a few years of comparative blazingly overachieving!

Most of the post match boos were indeed directed towards Uncle Sepp. It was a great experience to boo him in person.

Posted in: Australia downs South Korea 2-1 in extra time to win Asian Cup final See in context

One of the most tense and nerve wracking nights of sport I can remember attending. May well be second only to November 16, 2005, in regard to pure joy at the end.

I still would have rather left happy after a 1-0 win at the end of 90 minutes! But all's well, ends well. Feel privileged to have attended group stage, quarter final, semi final, and final matches of an international tournament.

bj League has the right approach, building clubs with a connection to the community has a much better long-term growth prospect than tieing clubs to companies.

Hajime Moriyasu should be considered. He built a very strong and consistent Sanfrecce Hiroshima team. He could build a strong and consistent Japan.
