Naoshi Makes Winning Return to Starting Lineup

Having missed the opening game through injury, the bustling Nakamura helped inspire a comfortable 2-0 win over local rivals Jubilo. While I do not think using him as a defensive midfielder is the best use of his talents, he can be quite effective; but is a bit inclined to pick-up needless yellow cards in his enthusiasm. Today was one of his better days. The results leaves us nicely positioned in 5th place, one point behind league leaders S-Pulse.

Meanwhile Igor Burzanovic, who has looked less than impressive so far this season, got us off to a brilliant start, firing in from inside his own half after only a few seconds. It then took as another 87 minutes to make the game safe, but eventually ran out comfortable winners despite a less than fluid performance. A team still seeking its rhythm after the infusion of new players, is looking good after three games.
