A lovely night out – The Nabisco Cup tie between Nagoya Grampus and Omiya Ardija

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 6:13 am

Went up to Nagoya to watch a game of footy over here.  Last chance I had to watch a live game before coming back to Oz.

Initially I thought that Nagoya would stomp on the low down the table Omiya … but I was very very wrong.

The no-players-on-International-duty Omiya stomped on the leadership lacking Nagoya. Thirty or so minutes of Nagoya possession and half chances became 3 – 0 in the space of 20 minutes.  They did pull a goal back towards the end.  But it was all too little, too late.

Nagoya Stadium apparently holds 20 something thousand, but it is really low set, very homely.  The pitch was beautiful.  As usual.

The announced crowd was about 5,000.  The loudest 5,000 fans I have ever seen.  The majority were in the supporters area.
