The new episode of J-Talk is a bumper 63 minutes with Cesare Polenghi, Shintaro Kano and Stuart Smith on J1 Matchday 6, the Japan national team and J2 & J3.
Cesare, moving very quickly(!), joins me from the most unique of locations to discuss Kashima's win at Gamba Osaka and Hiroshima's continued excellence before we move on to the national team training camp in Chiba this week and the possible make-up of Alberto Zaccheroni's World Cup 23 (to 17:05).
Shintaro then chats about Kashiwa's win over Cerezo Osaka and more on the national team, including a very left field pick to be on the plane to Brazil (to 37:00), before I run through the other Matchday 6 results (to 41:40).
Stuart then joins me to chat about the second and third tiers (to 60:25), and I finish off the episode with a check on ACL and Nabisco Cup results from last midweek..
