  • Vs FC Tokyo (away) 18/3/17, J-League match 4
  • FC Tokyo 3 - 0 Kawasaki FrontaleNot the best day for Frontale fans. The first Tamagawa Classico of 2017 ended with a scoreline tha
    t flattered FC Tokyo a bit, but you can’t really say we deserved anything more than a draw at best. It also, I hope, saw the maj

  • Vs Kashiwa Reysol (home) 10/3/17, J-League match 3
  • Kawasaki Frontale 2 - 1 Kashiwa Reysol Off to Todoroki on a Friday night. In the UK I probably would complain about games being sw
    itched to Friday night as it doesn’t make it very easy for fans to get to them. Marinos fans had to schlep all the way out to Ka
    shima for their fixture, but we were lucky this time and were at home. I understand why they want to move games around given ACL f

  • Vs Sagan Tosu (home) 5/3/17, J-League match 2
  • Kawasaki Frontale 1 - 1 Sagan TosuFirst home game this season was against Sagan Tosu. We never really seem to do that well against
    them, so it might not have been the best way to kick off our home campaign, particularly after the disappointment of last Wednesd
    ay. It gave Harakawa an early chance to come back to us after his loan move to Tosu and in spite of him scoring their only goal la

  • Vs Omiya Ardija (away) 25/2/17, J-League match 1
  • Omiya Ardija 0 - 2 Kawasaki FrontaleThis year we started our J League campaign in Omiya. Last year we didn’t get a chance to vis
    it this ground as the Ardija game was held in Kumagaya instead. I think most of you can remember how that one finished up. It was
    one of a few games where we could tell that we wouldn’t have enough to get us over the line and win the title. Okubo got a ridic

  • 2017 season, here we go
  • Today, a quick post they day before our 2017 season gets underway. It’s an interesting time to be a Frontale fan at the moment. We have plenty of new players and a new manager. I think all of us are hoping that Oniki will continue with the same kind of attractive attacking football that Kazama liked. If he could bring just a little more stability at the back it would be nice though! We kick the s [続きを読む]
  • New players, part 4: Ao Tanaka & Akihiro Ienaga
  • Part 4 of my pre-season new player round up. Once again, most information is swiped from Wikipedia and the photos swiped from the
    Frontale website. Sorry! Ao TanakaSquad number - 32Position - MidfielderD.O.B. - 10th September 1998Height - 1.78mA product of the

  • New players, part 2: Rhayner & Jefferson Tabinas
  • Part 2 of my pre-season new player round up. Once again, most information is swiped from Wikipedia and the photos swiped from the
    Frontale website. Sorry! RhaynerSquad number - 22Position - ForwardD.O.B. -5th September 1990Height -1.79mAs with all Brazilian si
    gnings, Rhayner automatically has generated a bit of excitement. He's a striker. He's a Brazilian. That's about all
    it takes. He signed from [続きを読む]
  • New players, part 1: Hiroyuki Abe & Kei Chinen
  • This is the first of four posts on our new players this season. A few of the names will be more familiar as some of the younger si
    gnings were announced last year. I'm also including Ao Tanaka as a new player, as although he had a squad number last year, t
    his really feels like his first season as previously he hasn't really seen any action. I'll be posting them in ascending
    squad number order and t [続きを読む]
  • 2017 squad numbers
  • After this afternoon's new season announcement ceremony (not really sure what to call it exactly), we now know the squad numb
    ers for the new season. Also revealed for the first time were the new kits (not exactly sure what I think about them yet to be hon
    est). As I keep promising, I will write something about all of the new additions to the squad soon, but before that, here's t
    he squad numbers. We [続きを読む]
  • 2016 Season Player Round-Up Part 3
  • This is the final part of my end of season player round up, featuring squad numbers 21-32 and our departing manager. After this po
    st I'll write something about the new additions to our squad (probably after the pre-season presentation/party thing that&apo
    s;s happening in a week or so. Hopefully by then I will be able to use two hands to type again, as recently writing these things h

  • 2016 Season Player Round-Up Part 2
  • Part two of my player round up, with a few new bits of information added that I found out about after I initially wrote this. Part
    3 to follow soon, and I'll also try to write something about the new players who are joining us (so far Ienaga, Fitzgerald a
    nd Abe). 11 Kobayashi YuDelighted he’s staying with us and turning down what would have been big money elsewhere. I love Kobayas

  • 2016 Season Player Round-Up Part 1
  • This the first of three parts, where I give my thoughts on how people did this season. I wrote these before our last few Emperor&a
    pos;s Cup games, but most of it still stands I think and I'll add notes where things don't make sense. So, here you are,
    squad numbers 1-10. Parts 2 and 3 to follow soon.1 Sung-Ryong Jung Had a decent enough first season I think. We missed him when h

  • Vs Kashima Antlers 1/1/17 - Emperor's Cup Final
  • Kashima Antlers 2 - 1 Kawasaki Frontale (AET)Another short post. Hand still injured so typing is slow and difficult, stream of th
    e game cut out a lot so difficult to make any real judgements on the game, enthusiasm low… Season is now finished, goodbye to Ok
    ubo and Kazama and probably some others. Guess the real transfer business starts now. From my limited viewing of the game, feel li

  • Vs Kashima Antlers (home) 23/11/16 - Championship semi final
  • Kawasaki Frontale 0 - 1 Kashima AntlersSo, finally we can say without a doubt, that our league campaign is over. It’s a shame it had to happen like this, as I don’t think we can really say we did a good job in this game, but maybe if we were going to lose at some stage in this Championship stage, it is a bit less painful to fall at the first hurdle. And given that we only needed a draw to progre [続きを読む]
  • Vs Gamba Osaka (home) 3/11/16 - 2nd Stage match 17
  • Kawasaki Frontale 2 - 3 Gamba OsakaSo, the second stage is finished and as far as I’m concerned, good riddance to it. It’s been a topsy-turvy few months with us veering between half decent performances and displays that are so abject that is was a miracle we managed to finish third in the second stage and second overall. We finished up with the visit of Gamba and it was somehow appropriate that [続きを読む]
  • Vs Kashima Antlers (away) 29/10/16 - 2nd Stage match 16
  • Kashima Antlers 0 - 1 Kawasaki FrontaleFirstly, apologies it has taken me so long to write this post. Saturday saw us make the rel
    atively short but particularly arduous journey to Kashima. On the map it doesn’t look so far but the transport connections to Ka
    shima and in particular their stadium make the journey a bit of a pain. The game was a 14:00 kick off but the gates opened three h

  • Vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima (home) 22/10/16 - 2nd Stage match 15
  • Kawasaki Frontale 2 - 0 Sanfrecce HiroshimaFootball’s back! And to be honest, the break was welcome. After a fairly long and expensive journey to Kobe to see us put in a clueless performance and get hammered, I think plenty of us welcomed the few weeks off. But as tends to be the case, I was itching to get back to a game about half way through that break. Our visitors this time were Sanfrecce Hir [続きを読む]
  • Vs Vissel Kobe (away) 1/10/16 - 2nd Stage match 14
  • Vissel Kobe 3 - 0 Kawasaki FrontaleFor the second post in a row, where to start with this game? Because we were playing in the evening we were aware of Urawa’s smashing of Gamba earlier in the day, so it was crucial that we put in a good performance in order to keep ahead of them overall. Unfortunately, that’s not exactly what we did. In fact, it’s the opposite of what we did. This game w [続きを読む]
