FC Tokyo 4-0 FC Gifu
J2 Matchday 16
Happy days at Aji Sta, as The Gasmen roared to the top of J2 with an utterly dominant 4-0 thrashing of bottom club FC Gifu. The XI was the same for the sixth straight game, but of course the big story was Lucas, who made the bench and then entered the fray in the 76th minute.
Yuhei Tokunaga opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, netting his first league goal in three years, as we finally capitalised on our dominance. After the break Sotan Tanabe (who played-in Tokunaga for the first goal) kept his composure well to double our lead before Roberto Cesar bagged a brace, his first a well-taken clip with the outside of his right boot, and his second, and our fourth, a penalty (that he took despite the home end baying for Lucas to take) after he was brought down on the right side of the box.
And we were there to tell you all about it. Tokyo Bairn and Dan joined me for a three-part Gas Talk, recorded before kickoff, at half time and then fulltime out on the back stairs.
Be careful of the volume levels again, in particular the difference between Parts 1 & 2 (recorded inside the stadium) and Part 3 (out the back so much quieter).
