  • 2017 season survey
  • Ok, it seems that I lied about only doing two more posts this season. I'm sneaking this one in too. Thought it might be an in
    teresting idea to see what other Frontale fans think about this season so I'm attempting the first ever Frontale Rabbit Blog
    survey. I have to admit, the questions are not exactly thrillingly original. If you have any questions you think I should add, ple

  • 2017 Season Player Round-Up Part 3
  • 23. EDUARDO (DF)Weird season for him. Didn’t play much at all and seems to definitely be behind Taniguchi and Nara in the pecking order for the central defence positions. Like Rhayner, fell foul of us having too many Brazilians at times. Always gives 100% but still prone to little lapses in concentration. Totally dropped from the squad after the Levain final clanger which I thought was a bit hars [続きを読む]
  • 2017 Season Player Round-Up Part 2
  • 11. KOBAYASHI YuPretty decent first season as captain! Top scorer in the league and MVP. Plenty of assists to go along with the goals. Feels like he’s not particularly suited to being the striker but given that he scored more goals than anyone else in the country, the complaint seems a bit harsh. Feel like he played better on the wing with Abe up front but Ienaga becoming a regular starter means [続きを読む]
  • 2017 Season Player Round-Up Part 1
  • Like last year, this the first of three parts, where I give my thoughts on how people did this season. So, here you are, squad nu
    mbers 1-10. Parts 2 and 3 to follow soon.1. JUNG Sung-RyongAwesome season for one of our most important players. Saved us on nume
    rous occasions. We wouldn’t have won the league without him. Feel that he probably should have been in with a shout of being in

  • Vs Omiya Ardija (home) 2/12/17, J-League match 34
  • Kawasaki Frontale 5 - 0 Omiya ArdijaI don’t really know what to write for this blog post. This was an amazing day and a great way to finish the season. After the disappointing end to both our Levain and ACL campaigns it was fantastic to take a title that I think the majority of us would have preferred to win. This was a pretty tense day and it was difficult to focus on our game. Consequently, thi [続きを読む]
  • Vs Urawa Reds (away) 29/11/17, J-League match 33
  • Urawa Reds 0 - 1 Kawasaki FrontaleThe season is fast drawing to a close. Our limp Emperors Cup exit to Kashiwa means that we’ll be done pretty early this year. Whether that will be with our first ever title or with another couple of second places to add to the disheartening stash of them we must have stowed away somewhere in the bowels of the Todoroki, only time will tell. Wednesday night was an [続きを読む]
  • Vs Gamba Osaka (home) 18/11/17, J-League match 32
  • Kawasaki Frontale 1 - 0 Gamba OsakaSo, we’re still alive. But it’s surely a matter of postponing the inevitable. Kashima’s victory over Urawa the day after our Levain Cup disintegration (a game due to be played this weekend, but moved because of Urawas ACL progress), left us with a seven point deficit with three games remaining for us (and two for them). There's a possibility that we could stil [続きを読む]
  • Vs Cerezo Osaka 4/11/17, Levain Cup, final
  • Cerezo Osaka 2 - 0 Kawasaki FrontaleGoing to keep this brief, as I’m not in the mood to spend much time thinking or writing about this game. We came up short again. At the final hurdle again. It’s likely that the season is over on all fronts now. It’s going to take a hell of a lot of bouncing back to pick ourselves up for our final three games and I think there’s plenty of us who would be quit [続きを読む]
  • Vs Kashiwa Reysol (away) 29/10/17, J-League match 31
  • Kashiwa Reysol 2 - 2 Kawasaki FrontaleThis year's away game at Kashiwa couldn’t have been in more different conditions to the one last year. In 2016 we visited early on in the season and cover from the elements was in short supply and high demand, given that it was dangerously sunny. This time the cover was equally desirable but for a different reason. A typhoon was passing and it was pouring dow [続きを読む]
  • Vs Sanfrecce Hiroshima (away) 21/10/17, J-League match 30
  • Sanfrecce Hiroshima 0 - 3 Kawasaki FrontaleBarring anything that might happen in the Emperor’s cup, this was our last long distance away game this season and in spite of the weather and the distance, it was a trip well worth making. Sanfrecce Hiroshima are a team more than flirting with relegation not long after winning the league. That kind of thing does tend to happen in the J League I guess, [続きを読む]
  • Vs Vegalta Sendai (home) 14/10/17, J-League match 29
  • Kawasaki Frontale 3 - 2 Vegalta SendaiFinally, our seemingly endless run of games against Sendai is over and I’m pretty sure we will come away from these games feeling pretty pleased with what we achieved. Once again this was a game with some strong similarities and some big differences to the other Sendai games. The big similarity is another two yellow red card with some controversy attached to [続きを読む]
  • Vs Cerezo Osaka (home) 30/9/17, J-League match 28
  • Kawasaki Frontale 5 - 1 Cerezo OsakaSaturday saw us back at home and back on track. There were a few notable absences though thank
    s to Vissel Kobe and their rotten pitch. Yes, I know, I should move on, but I still find it incomprehensible that a team that seem
    s to have signing slightly past it European players on megabucks as it’s main goal, can’t find enough cash to have a surface t
    hat is actua [続きを読む]
  • Vs Vissel Kobe (away) 23/9/17, J-League match 27
  • Vissel Kobe 0 - 0 Kawasaki FrontaleDamn this was horrible. Perhaps better than last year when we lost 3-0 having pretty much faile
    d to turn up, but it was a stinker all the same. This time we put in a decent effort but were thwarted by a horrible pitch and a t
    errible referee. So it’s back on to familiar territory for me, moaning about referees. A year or so ago we thought Nishimura was
    bad, but n [続きを読む]
  • Vs Shimizu S Pulse (away) 16/9/17, J-League match 26
  • Shimizu S Pulse 0 - 3 Kawasaki FrontaleWhat a difference a few days makes. After the despair and disappointment of Wednesday night
    when we slid out of the ACL without really putting up much of a fight (at least from an attacking point of view anyway…), we go
    t back to winning ways away at Shimizu. This ground was voted the ground with best scenic views in the J League and I would probab
    ly have to [続きを読む]
  • Vs Ventforet Kofu (away) 27/8/17, J-League match 24
  • Ventforet Kofu 2 - 2 Kawasaki FrontaleLast season this game was a cracker. In fact both games against Kofu last year were 4-0 vict
    ories for us. This year we've ended up with two draws and perhaps this game has signaled the end of our title ambitions, at l
    east until (fingers crossed), Kashima implode. We're now 6 points behind them, a team who it seems we can beat easily but no
    one else can, and [続きを読む]
  • Vs Urawa Reds (home) 23/8/17, ACL Quarter Finals
  • Kawasaki Frontale 3 -1 Urawa Reds My first game back after my holiday and it was a cracker. We were back on ACL duty again, although this game didn’t have quite the usual exotic excitement of an ACL tie, what with us being up against familiar opponents Urawa Reds. Since we last faced them (and totally demolished them I should add!), they have had a change of manager and had gone on a decent run, [続きを読む]
  • Vs Consadoe Sapporo (home) 19/8/17, J-League match 23
  • Kawasaki Frontale 2 - 1 Consadole SapporoThe last match I will miss due to my holiday and it was another win, perhaps not as convi
    ncing and exciting as the Kashima one, but a decent result against a team that frustrated us at their place earlier in the season.
    I was on the plane as the game was taking place so everything I know, I know from the brief highlights video and the game stats.
    There were [続きを読む]
