Since its Japan related thought I would point out that Japan keeper Eiji Kawashima is being touted as a signing for Dundee Utd. Would be an interesting one.

Big day for Japanese footie, with J2 automatic and playoff promotion spots to be decided, and well as the J3 title contested between two clubs level on points as of the final matchday.

Briobecca Urayasu and ReinMeer Aomori promoted from the regional leagues (level 5) to the Japan Football League (level 4) after winning the playoffs. Possible that a third club could go up if the JFL opts to relegate bottom-feeders Tochigi Uva—if so, that would be either Saurcos Fukui or FC Kariya. Fukui is a dinosaur-themed club. :albino:

Hiroshima hold off Gamba to win 3rd J-League title in 4 years

Sanfrecce Hiroshima captured the J-League title for the third time in four years after defeating Gamba Osaka 4-3 on aggregate in a two-legged final on Saturday.

Hiroshima, who won a league record 74 points over the two-stage season, drew 1-1 in Saturday's home leg before a crowd of more than 36,000, a result good enough to hand them the championship plate following their 3-2 victory in Osaka on Wednesday.

Yes, they finished fourth in the J1 and won the League Cup back in 2008. They're the first former J1 club in the J3, and the first former League Cup winners in the J3.

Former Hamburg, Nuremburg, Bremen, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Bayern, Schalke, Wolfsburg, Fulham manager Felix Magath has been linked to the job at Sagan Tosu.

That would be a major coup for the Kyushu based club who have been caretaking since parting with Korean Yoon Jong-Hwan last year under mysterious circumstances. There are rumours though that Magath might jump ship as Tosu isn't going to help him complete the set of having managed at every club in Germany. For example, the job at Hannover is likely to open up quite soon.

Emperor's Cup

Played on the first day of the year. What a great way to get over your hangover (by finding an excuse to drink more):

Odd that the quarters, semis and final were all crammed within eight days this year. Urawa players did seem a bit tired at times.

Impressive stuff from Gamba, who were relegated just a few years ago.

Yes, really impressive. Usami played a big part. It seems he's off to Europe again.
