Thomas Birch joins me on the first episode of the week to discuss another big win for Gamba Osaka and the other results in the top five of J1 from last Saturday's Matchday 28 (to 42:10).

I then round up the rest of the top flight games (to 46:00), before finishing the episode with a J2 and J3 update.

Episode 119 - Japan, J2 & J3

No intro to the podcast this week, there simply wasn't time, as Stuart Smith and Jon Steele guested to talk about Japan's friendlies against Jamaica and Brazil (to 15:00), and their bread and butter, J2, as the races to make (at the top) and avoid (at the bottom) the playoffs really heat up with six games to go (to 1:01:20).
We finish off the episode with a check on J3.

Episode 118 - 2014 J1 Matchday 27

Sean Carroll guests on this week's podcast, and there was plenty on the agenda for us to talk about.

We began with a chat about The Inside Left's 'Together For The Goal' documentary (and you can find a link to it on the left side of the website), before moving on to discuss all of the games from J1 Matchday 27 and Javier Aguirre's squad for Japan's friendlies against Jamaica and Brazil.

At the end of the episode there's a brief review of the weekend's J2 and J3 games.
