    Ok so based on this thread and the polls we did, Kawasaki Frontale will be our team to follow.

    Disclaimer for people who like to moan. This does not mean don’t support Utd. It’s just a fun way to enjoy football again without having so much doom, gloom and emotional investment. I had more fun in the thread talking about which team to follow than I have talking about Utd recently that’s for sure. Football is entertainment at the end of the day.

    Kawasaki Frontale play in the J-League in Japan. They have won the J-League the last two years running and are currently 4th after 10 games. They play at the Kawasaki Todoroki Stadium (capacity 26,232) and their main rivals are FC Tokyo. One notable player is Leandro Damiao.

    [​IMG]

    They play in a Napoli style blue kit.

    [​IMG]

    Their manager is Toru Iniki Oniki who played for them from 2000 to 2006 as a midfielder.

    --------------------------------------------------

    We will be trying to follow them, get to know the club and players, post highlights, memes, whatever you want relating to our adopted club.

    Their next game is Sunday against Shimizu S-Pulse at 6am UK time. It's only showing me Canada time so I did the math.

    19 points? Sack Oniki! He's out of his depth.

    Holy crap. Someone actually signed Leandro Damaio.

    This will not be good for the 2021/2022 season when both teams play eachother in the world club championships.

    What a shit season we're having so far. Players aren't hungry enough to chase continued success, they've clearly packed it in. Waste of fecking time.

    They actually played yesterday in the group stage of the AFC Champions League. Damiao and Taniguchi (who I will be sure to give the nickname tamagotchi) scored but Hulk made it 2 - 2.

    [​IMG]

    They are 3rd in the group with a game to play and need Shangai to drop points in the last game now.

    Our current form is really good though, 4 wins one draw in the last 5 games. Chill out and give the man a proper shot at the job. He's a club legend afterall.

    Give them Chong (appropriate name) and Gomes (appropriate height) on loan and I'll follow.

    Sack him. Should have hired Klopp.

    Is there actually anywhere in the UK that shows J-League? I don't think you can even stream it on Skybet like you can the Australian and Chinese leagues.

    I'm not sure. I know they used to stream J-League on bet365 when I watched last season. I haven't checked this season though.

    Highlights include:

    0:45 - Kawasaki's amazing little teapot thing mascot with the dolphin.
    1:20 - Hulk nutmegging someone and taking the worst shot of all time.
    1:25 - Hulks goal replayed about 6 times til 2:55
    2:58 - Lovely worked goal by Japoli. Damiao with the finish
    3:20 - The second worst shot of all time. We're in for a treat lads.
    3:43 - Oh god what have we done :lol:
    4:20 - Some kind of superspeed foul.
    5:34 - Oniki playing subbuteo.
    5:54 - TAMAGOTCHI
    6:44 - Hulk ruins everything. They seem to not have captured the goal live :lol:

    I'd just like to point out that our league rivals Kashima Antlers have had a slogan every season since 1998 and I must say they are inspired.

    I remember the days of Inamoto, and that North Korean player who balled his eyes out during the World Cup. There's nothing I like about this group of players.

    Clearly we need to come up with a slogan for our beloved Kawasaki. Japoli Dream?

    Didn't expect much from the 1999 season apparently.
