End-Of-Year Statistics, Or Do I Mean History?

Simple question, now that the season has finished: how does 2009-era Ardija compare with previous seasons in J1? Simple answer: pretty much the same. Jang Wae Ryong's Omiya achieved what is for the club an average position [sigh] and the second-lowest number of points achieved - but the best-ever goal difference. Here are the numbers:

2005. 13th place, 41pts, 39 scored, 50 conceded
2006. 12th place, 44pts, 43 scored, 55 conceded
2007. 15th place, 35pts, 24 scored, 40 conceded
2008. 12th place, 43pts, 36 scored, 45 conceded
2009. 13th place, 39pts, 40 scored, 47 conceded

Thanks as always to Furtho and the team for keeping us exiles up to date on the orange side of things.
A cracking goal was a nice way to tie off another season but perhaps we should start to realise that it wasnt a disappointing year but was normal. We have found our level and, as seems easier in Jleague than many other leagues, we will have years when we can push the leaders but similarly will just as likely go down soon.
Focus on the good though and the close season will be a better place to be. We seem to have a solid keeeper and cracking croat in front of him. A youngish squad is scoring some nice goals and I have been very impressed with some of the play Ive seen (but I tend not to watch the dross). And we did beat the red scum soundly.
Hopefully I will get over for my first taste of the Nack5 next year (its been too many years since I watched orange in the flesh).
Thanks again and keep it orange!

While I am here though I should start the call for a return for everone's favoutite ex-omiya creative midfielder.
Shimada is available. Go get him.

Great to hear from you as ever, Edo, and thanks for the kind words. It's the lack of progress since 2005 and the lack of management direction that is causing the frustration you're seeing here. We're not expecting miracles but some sense of there being even the tiniest amount of coherent development would be nice and not, y'know, too much to ask for.
