We spoke last night, almost straight after the Japan game, so firstly Jon and I covered Japan v Oman, with the Samurai Blue getting their final stage campaign off to the perfect start with a 3-0 win, before we got down to business discussing the talking points around the most open J2 season in years.
This 52 minute podcast runs in two main parts:
- Part 1 (A): A quick getting-to-know-you chat with Jon (to about five minutes in);
- Part 1 (B): The World Cup qualifier and Japan's upcoming schedule (to 18:20);
- Part 2: J2 through 17 games - A review of key results from Matchday 17, the top six and teams in the playoff mix, Jon's picks for promotion and the playoffs, as well as a lengthy discussion on the new playoff and relegation systems amongst other issues.
