Ryan Steele makes his J-Talk debut to discuss Urawa's thoroughly deserved J1 First Stage title, secured with a game to spare on Saturday. The key players and the performances that stood out are both covered in detail, before we move on to review all of the games from Matchday 16 and Ryan gives his tips to contend in the second stage (to 50:15). I finish the episode with a quick check on J2 and J3.

This episode is also available on iTunes. (The iTunes version of the podcast cuts out in the middle of my "Bye for now", but I'm sure you'll cope without it!)
