We're back, and we kick off the fifth season of J-Talk in the same way we did the fourth, with our J2 Season Preview. With Stuart Smith (illness) unavailable, Jon Steele did a superb job as we previewed all 22 second tier clubs and their prospects for the new campaign. As with last season's preview, this episode is broken into three parts:
Part 1 (to 31.10) covers the three sides relegated from J1, and the three who missed out in the playoffs in 2015;
Part 2 (to 54.40) includes the teams who just missed out on the top six last season, and others from lower down the table, including those we think have a shot at climbing into playoff contention;
Part 3 to end (1.17.41) covers last season's strugglers, and the two sides promoted from J3.
