SHIMIZU S-PULSE 0 CONSADOLE SAPPORO 8

Shame.. Some people will have to take responsibility…
End of horror!
90+4′ Almost a ninth goal again but fans still encouraging!
90 + 3′ Almost a ninth goal!
Still the best fans in the world encouraging S-Pulse!
5 minutes of hell added! Corner kick for Consadole. Almost a ninth goal!

89′ GOAL! Eigth one given on a plate!
89′ Corner kick for Consadole.
88′ Almost the 8th goal!
83’Terrible display by umpire who first books Consadole’s forward for diving then changes the decision to give a free kick! GOAL! Thank you umpire!
78′ GOAL conceded after Umpire refused to give peanlty kick again!
S-Pulse never gave up but they made the work too easy for their opponents!
Back to the worst defense in Japan…
75′ GOAL! Another counter and easy goal!
73′ Another penalty kick refused!
72′ Consadole misses a fifth goal!
Taki in for Takeuchi.
70′ The luck is not with S-Pulse as a great heading hits the post!

Kick off by Consadole.

S-Pulse was not dominated but they gave away two soft goals and made too many mistakes especially kaneko and Tasuta on the right side. We seem to be back to the old S-Pulse after some good results. The bench will have to contribute quickly or this will be hopeless especially with an umpire who does not protect players and forgets to use his eyes!
The first half finishes with another chance wasted as heading flies over the bar!
1 minute extra time. Game is becoming boring.
39′ Douglas misses an easy goal!
30′ GOAL! Another blunder leaves the goal open! Jay, the scorer who got booked for a brutality makes a gesture to the crowd but escapes booking!

S-Pulse has to confirm their splendid last Saturday’s in Yokohama to hope to move further the table and nearer this year’s goal! But today’s opponents, Matsumoto Yamaga, in spite of their low ranking have one of the best defenses in Japan and will come with a packed half! Let’s hope that S-Pulse finds the way to the goal as early as possible!

Final whistle. End of ordeal!
Tokyo almost scores in extra time!
4 extra minutes of torture.
It will be a long season. S-Pulse will probably see the end safely but they definitely need a couple of good players!

Half time: S-Pulse: 6 chances, 0 goal, Tokyo, 3 chances, 2 goals! Hopeless!

SHIMIZU S-PULSE MEMBERS INTERVIEW: KAZUYA MURATA

The Smiling Teacher!

Ever-smiling Kazuya Murata, born on October 7th 1988, is a highly popular senior member who has already played for Shimizu S-Pulse since 2013.
Born in Moriyama City in Shiga Prefecture he attended Yasu High School, an establishment well-known for its soccer/football club in Shiga Prefecture, and later attended Osaka University of Health and Sports Sciences where among others he was awarded a Physical Education Teaching License.
He first joined Cerezo Osaka Soccer Club in 2011 before moving to Shimizu S-Pulse two years later. He is married and has a 3-year old son.

Question: What was the main difference for you between your native Shiga prefecture and Shizuoka Prefecture?
Kazuya Murata: I can’t say there were huge differences to overcome as both share a welcome “country” atmosphere. I actually feel very comfortable in Shimizu and Shizuoka Prefecture with its nature spread along the sea and deep inland. Although Shiga Prefecture has no sea shore, the big Lake Biwa certainly makes it up as an inland sea! It is certainly a great region to live in a professional sportsman with a family!

Q: What about the local food, then?
K M: I must admit that not being born near meant I had eaten almost no sushi until I came to Shimizu. I was a big meat eater and it did take a long time before I started enjoying fish and seafood. On the other hand I must admit that coming to Shizuoka contributed to a far better balance in my daily diet!

Q: Quite an interesting comment from one who knows a fair bit about health and sports Sciences! What about vegetables, then?
K M: (laugh) If it were not for the wife, I would be hopeless. I understand I need them and fortunately my better half concocts food with as much vegetables as possible, cutting them in small pieces and including them in soups, especially minestrone, and curries in particular!

Q: How do you spend your free time?
K M: I spend as much as time as possible with my young son watching him growing and trying to contribute as much as possible to his education.
I keep visiting regularly schools to gain as much experience as possible for when I retire from soccer and becomes the teacher according to my studies at university.

Q: What do you usually drink with your food?
K M: as I can’t drink any alcohol, I consume green tea, sports drinks, although the latter might not be that healthy (laugh)!

Q: Would you like to recommend a restaurant to our fans and readers?
K M: We mentioned in our private conversation prior to this interview a great Osaka-style Takoyaki restaurant called Ebisu in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City whose owner has become a personal friend. Another fine place, inexpensive with nice food and cozy atmosphere, is Onion in Shimizu Ku! Thinking of the name, I feel less guilty for not eating enough vegetables!

SHIMIZU S-PULSE MEMBERS INTERVIEW: KO MATSUBARA

A young man with an ambition!

Ko Matsubara, born on August 30th 1996, is still a very young (almost 22 years of age) Shimizu S-Pulse player but is already an established member/senior member who has started in most matches so far this year.
He is also a Shizuoka prefecture home-grown player who was playing for the Jubilo JR Iwata Youth team when attending Hamamatsu Kaiseikan High School in Hamamatsu City.
He first appeared for Shimizu S-Pulse in 2015 and has already been selected 3 times for the J League Under-22.
Originally an attacker, he is very versatile player who converted to a dangerous attacking left back constantly taking part in counters apart of being a very effective defender.

Question: Ko, would you care describing yourself?
-Ko Matsubara: I am still young and not very talkative. I still have to learn before expressing myself at ease. One thing is sure: I do not like to lose and may have to control my temper on the pitch.
Off the pitch I concentrate on my interests and am a quiet person.

Q: How often do you go back to your birthplace in Hamamatsu and do you still visit your schools?
K M: I do go back home when on holidays, which means basically only during the off season. I do pay a visit at least once a year to my schools to keep the links with my youth and help out.

Q: What are your hobbies apart of soccer/football?
K M: Computer games, definitely. I play them on my smart phone and easily get lost into them. Recently, after an acquaintance offered me some, I taken a liking to reading books. Being a professional sportsman I do have to take a lot of rest in between exercise, games and physical care, so these hobbies are easy to enjoy.

Q: What fashion do you follow?
K M: Formal or casual, depending on the occasion. I prefer slacks and shirts of the latest fashion. I must admit I do spend quite a big amount of money on clothes as I enjoy being well-dressed. You could say this is another one of my hobbies!

Q: What food do you particularly enjoy?
K M: Sushi and seafood, especially raw seafood! I am always on a look out for a new restaurant, so I would be grateful if you could introduce me to one! Because I have to take care of my physical condition I have started to appreciate vegetables. I have recently developed a special liking for broccoli!

Q: What is your ambition as a soccer/football player?
K M: As high and as far as possible! I know I still have my future ahead of me, but I would like very much to play abroad although that might imply quite an amount of dedication and learning. Naturally, my dream would be to play for the National Japan Eleven!

Q: Dear Ko, thank you so much for sparing your time and I wish you all the best! And who knows, I might have to interview you for a bigger reason one day!
K M: You are most welcome!
