J1 2009 Preview: Round-up


Now that I'm done with my team-by-team preview for J1 I thought it would be appropriate with a little round-up about how I think the table will look when the season are finished in December:
1. Gamba Osaka 70p
--------------------------
2. Urawa Reds 66p
3. Kawasaki Frontale 63p
-----------------------------
4. Kashima Antlers 62p
5. Shimizu S-Pulse 59p
6. FC Tokyo 59p
7. Nagoya Grampus 58p
8. Oita Trinita 55p
9. Yokohama F Marinos 49p
10. Vissel Kobe 49p
11. JEF United 45p
12. Kyoto Sanga 43p
13. Omiya Ardija 40p
14. Sanfrecce Hiroshima 38p
15. Jubilo Iwata 34p
--------------------------
16. Kashiwa Reysol 32p
17. Albirex Niigata 30p
18. Montedio Yamagata 24p

Kaare mate, you are a MACHINE!
that is an awesome team review that you wrote for the J1.
As for the table, it looks pretty decent but Im not sure about Gamba winning. Also I think Urawa and Kobe will finish a bit down on the table then you predicted.

Are you doing a J2 review??

Anyway, look forward to the battle again between you and us this year!

Hehe thanks! long time no see:)
Yeah im about to finish my preview on J2 as well in a similar style so I'll post it later :) will u do any preview about Gifu?

Im moving to Japan in less than a month btw! Sapporo it is, so I guess i will have to be a season-ticket holder at Sapporo Dome;) Atleast I get a few chances to see Cerezo play there in away matches!

How do you rate Gifu's chances btw?

About Urawa, they are not in ACL this year, and Finke seems like a smart coach that can do good things with the club. They should atleast be able to finish within the top 3, but its too early to tell!
