Initial Reaction (February 2013)

Some picks for me include the derby, the away of which is being hosted at the tiny Yamaha Stadium! Initially it may seem a surprise for Jubilo to give up on Ecopa, but when you look at their dwindling crowds there of late, and the fact the last few derbys there have seen roughly the same number of away fans as home, you can't blame them for attempting to regain some kind of home field advantage.

Aside from that, Nagoya away at the immense Toyota may have to be done again. Yokohama FM this year will be at the much smaller Nippatsu Stadium, a far better viewing experience than the Nissan, and Oita Trinita away during summer holidays looks tempting. Less than a month before the big kick off, roll on 2013!

Hello Barry !

I finally took that group picture of my shirts :

Only the 2007 shirt is missing. Enjoy ! ;)

Barry said...

Awesome! That's a whole lot of orange. It's a shame I bought the 2008 shirt, not 2007, or I'd happily donate it to complete your collection...

I'll make a post about this picture when I get a minute. Our fans in Japan will love to see the devotion of an overseas fan like yourself. :)

Thanks Barry ! I'm happy to promote the club overseas, and to show to the Japanese supporters that S-Pulse is known and loved all over the globe (I did the same on the 20th mosaic by telling I was from France).

By reading your post they'll understand why this globe is our emblem, he he.
