J-Talk turns 200 with a chat on the Japan national team and the state of play in J1 with Sean Carroll, who was also the guest, among his many appearances on the show, for the first-ever episode, back at the start of the 2012 season.
There's reaction to Thailand 0-2 Japan played on Tuesday as well as the home loss to the UAE to open the final qualifying round last Thursday, with Shinji Kagawa in particular under the microscope (Japan chat to 33:35), then with seven games left in the J1 season we ponder a four team playoff, and Nagoya's survival hopes. #When reading the J1 fixtures I said Kobe host Kofu, but they don't - Gamba Osaka do.
