Am accessing by cellphone now so full entry will follow tomorrow after I return home.

Gamba are the first Kansai team to win in the J.league.

Cerezo Osaka were 3 minutes away from the title, in injury time, when FC Tokyo's Konno equalized. What a way to let the championship slip through your fingers...! Good job to FCT, who were without their two import forwards, and still clung on and fought to the end.

Kashima and Reds each with 4 goals, end season on good note.

Jef Chiba gave up an 81st minute goal to Nagoya via a bad lapse of communication, but get this -- they came back in the last five mins of the game to win. (I was just at this game, and it was super to be in a full Fukuda Denshi Arena)
