REPORT
End of an era…
The whole seemed completely jaded, with no aggressive intents in any line, be it in offense, defense or else. When S-Pulse had possession they just went on the same patterns with no flair or variety. When they defended they just waited for their opponents to come to them instead of making their life difficult.

The first goal came again on a poorly defended corner kick in the 29th minute and the second in the very last minute of the first half when S-Pulse players had assumed they would be only one goal behind before half time.Kawasaki waited until 80th minute and again in additional time to score twice again against a defense letting their opponents play at will.

It really hurt. But the fans showed stoicism and passion until the end.
Head coach Jan Anders Jônnson handed his resignation soon after the game.

Now the club will have to look forward to the rest of the season with a different coaching staff and it is not going to be easy, starting with a difficult game in Oita next Saturday. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
