SHIMIZU S-PULSE 0 FC TOKYO 2

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!
Hope all gone I’m afraid in spite of commendable efforts, but something is missing badly!
Nightmarish! The end of revival by Shinoda Coach era… Old demons coming back…
80′ Two corner kicks for S-Pulse. Completely wasted!
Taki in for Kawai.
79′ Great chance wasted by Tokyo!
77′ Another very dangerous Tokyo’s attack barely saved into corner kick! Inconclusive.
71′ It is getting a bit too easy for Tokyo!
68′ good enough attack by S-Pulse but impossible angle.

64′ Another dangerous attack by Tokyo!
61′ Dangerous Tokyo attack ending in corner kick. Corner kick again. Wasted.
57′ Nishibe saves his camp!
54′ Free kick for S-Pulse. Barely saved! One more chance gone begging! Corner kick. Poor! The referee is not helping either… It is getting messy. Dangerous free kick for Tokyo. Wasted. And SPulse’s counter wasted, too!

Sorry for the technical incident. Meanwhile S-Pulse had two chances but also conceded two dangerous corner kicks!

Half time: S-Pulse: 6 chances, 0 goal, Tokyo, 3 chances, 2 goals! Hopeless!
45′ Dangerous action by Tokyo starting from another silly defense mistake. Corner kick. I just don’t know how it did not get in! S-Pulse’s defense in disarray and counters wasted.
42′ Dangerous free kick for S-Pulse. Corner kick. Wasted.
38′ At last a good move by Elsinho but shot too weak!
After a great start S-Pulse concedes 2 simple goals for 2 attempts! Torture!
29′ GOAL! comedy of errors by S-Pulse defense!
27′ Corner kick for Tokyo.
21′ Co9rner kick for S-Tokyo.
16′ GOAL! First chance to Tokyo on a counter! Disappoiniting!

First home game of the new season!
A difficult opponent to start with, Gamba Osaka! After the good but somewhat disappointing draw achieved on the ground of Hiroshima Sanfrecce, last season’s 2nd place club, the boys will be keen to prove their worth even in the absence of at lest two star players!

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

Shimizu S-Pulse 2019 Season New Team Announcement Meeting

On January 11th the Shimizu S-Pulse 2019 Season New Uniforms, Policy and New Team Members Announcements Meeting took place from 13 p.m. on the 4th floor of the Century Hotel in Shizuoka City!
This was again a long-awaited meeting after the remarkable progress in 2018!

The new uniforms for home games and away games were unveiled and although slightly different from last year, continued with a more sober and adult design. The main color will be deep yellow and orange for home games and white with a little orange for away games.
-POLICY and FINANCES
2019 and beyond will basically follow the same path with the budget that been upgraded to 38.5 billion yen in 2018, and should aim at 40 billion yen in 2019 and 42 billion yen in 2020.
As confirmed before, this is a budget well above the average in the J1 league with sponsorship, general earnings, sales and wages taking the club to the 9th spot in a league accounting for 18 clubs.
As for this year performance targets they are still kept to a reasonable level aiming at finishing within the first 5 spots of the J1 League to improve on the excellent 8th spot achieved this year and at least reach the quarterfinals of the Levain Cup and of the Emperor’s Cup
As for future targets they are still the same, that is, Shimizu S-Pulse aims at no less than becoming J1 League Champions within 4 years and ACL Champions within 6 years.

-NEW TEAM MEMBERS
Vindicating the new coaching staff put in place in 2108 it has been re-assigned in bloc for a marked continuity in success.
As for the playing staff it has been pared down to a more reasonable size with the import of precisely targeted recruits and the confidence renewed in young players according to the club policy to develop as many of their players as possible.
All the lines are solidly doubled with an accent on re-enforcing the defense which was only average the past season and the midfield to support a very successful attack. Not only this will ensure a smooth turnover, especially with players on international duty, but also promises fierce competition for the starting spots!
The new players presented on that day were:
DF (right lateral) Elson Ferreira De Souza/nickname, Elsinho (Jersey No 18) acquired from Kawaasaki Frontale.
MF (right-footed) Keita Nakamura (Jersey No 20) recruited from V-Varen Nagasaki
MF (right-footed) Kenta Nishizawa (Jersey No 16) originally from the Shimizu S-Pulse Youth Team who the moved to Tsukuba University
GK (right-footed) Togo Umeda who graduated from the Shimizu s-Pulse Youth Team this year
Two new Brazilian players, Wanderson and Augusto and one Chinese player, WU Shaocong are still being processed and will be announced in the near future!
