Another year, another loss in a final.

You think I'd be used to it by now. Well, I'm not. It still SUCKS.

For those trashing the way Keiji Mutoh looks these days, don't forget he is a 51 year old now, who has been wrestling very physical and high-impact style since the mid-80s. Watching some of his old matches from the late 80s, early 90s in the NWA and WCW, he was a freak, doing things never seen in the USA before.

DAMN I would have loved to see Rock vs Muta in their prime. That would have been an incredible match. The Rock was pure main event box office, and Muta the greatest wrestler of all time.

If Inoki isn't allowed to wear his scarf, some nobody politician should definitely not be allowed.

For anyone who says he shouldn't have made the move, I think that is a pretty unrealistic appraisal of the situation. The greatest manager in football history calls you and says he wants you to join the biggest club in the world. What sort of ambitious or football loving person would say no to an opportunity like that?

The guy will forever have the knowledge he played on the biggest stage of club football, and has a Premier League winners medal to show for it. First Japanese player to ever win the Premier League, that's a thing that will be in the history books beside his name forever.

Full credit to him for taking the opportunity of a lifetime even if it didn't result in outstanding success over a longterm period.

Yokohama Marinos have not existed since they merged with Yokohama Flügels in 1999.

The article should be about Yokohama F. Marinos. No excuse for incorrectly naming the club in a news article.

Hakuho wins and wins but nobody cares. He doesn't draw a crowd. People don't find him or his style interesting.

Say what you will about Asashoryu, but the guy was a monster sumo who could draw a crowd.

A lot of goalkeepers from our region are doing exceedingly well in Belgium. Australia's Mat Ryan was voted as Goalkeeper of the Year in the Belgian league this season.

Jackman may not want to give up being Wolverine, but I am getting close to giving up wanting to see Wolverine in the movies. Too many X-Men pictures, I'm losing interest.

Posted in: Zaccheroni announces Japan's World Cup squad See in context

I feel like Endo being included is not so much a performance based thing as a loyalty thing. I feel Sato Hisato is unlucky not to be in the squad at all after being Japan's clearly most successful striker of the last 3 years.

Arnold sacked, surprising no-one. Vegalta have been embarrassing this season. They must thank Tokushima Vortis for being in J1 every day, because without Vortis, Vegalta would be clearly the worst team in the division.
