The first part of the podcast features a rousing debate over the Japan Football Association’s decision to fire former head coach Vahid Halilhodzic, with Scott and Dan taking contrasting sides before they and Ben discuss the fortunes of FC Tokyo and their better-than-expected start to the season.

In the second part, Scott takes a look at Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo’s impressive performances before passing judgement on relegation-threatened Nagoya Grampus, Yokohama F. Marinos, and Gamba Osaka. Dave then joins to discuss Machida Zelvia’s success early in the J2 campaign.
