Gasmen Wallop Grampus

FC Tokyo extended their current dominance over a dispirited Grampus with a 5-1 thrashing in tonight's Nabsico Cup game at Ajinomoto Stadium. :-)

Unfortunately, the soon to be departed Davi started the game and was not replaced until half time. By which time, a shell-shocked team was already 4-0 down to the rampant Gasmen. It will require a spectacular debut by Joshua Kennedy to lift the team's spirits.

How did Davi even start? Shouldn't he have been suspended for the 4th yellow card? Or is that for Saturday...


Anyway I felt bad for your supporters, coming out all that way to see a total ass-kicking. Any chance there are photos of the banner that Nagoya supporters hung behind the goal floating around? The traditional white-with-black-spraypaint-message variety... I couldn't read it from behind our goal.
