This was our second 1-0 defeat away in 4 days. I didn't watch either game but I have heard a report on the Kashima defeat and seen some highlights. It appears that we were just not good enough against probably the best team in the country. In that sense, conceding only one goal away is not the end of the world.
But today's result is pretty disappointing. I believe we fielded exactly the same team as the one that defeated Gamba a week ago and I expected to get a result against a team in 16th place that has been playing crap all year. This result indicates that our fantastic victory over Scumba was just luck.
