Urawa Reds the big losers in Golden Week gala

It's tough being Urawa Reds. The "biggest club in Asia" tag is a difficult one to live down, even if the Saitama giants haven't come close to winning a trophy for years.

The Reds burst onto the Asian football scene by winning the J. League under the swashbuckling auspices of German coach Guido Buchwald in 2006, befo
re his more circumspect successor Holger Osieck steered the Saitama giants to Asian Champions League glory the following year.

Things have gone from bad to worse to thoroughly miserable for Japan coach Takeshi Okada.
Four straight friendly defeats prompted Okada to organise a hastily scheduled training match against Zimbabwe overnight, but even that failed to yield relief as the Samurai Blue were held to a scoreless draw by the 110th-ranked African minnows.

At approximately 5.20pm on a chilly Saturday afternoon, the 2009 J. League champions will thrust their glittering trophy into wintry Japanese skies.

Whether it is two-time defending champions Kashima Antlers left celebrating, or the trophy-hungry Kawasaki Frontale, is the question still to be resolved.

Urawa Reds in crisis

It's now officially a crisis.

When they needed desperately to win, Urawa Reds slumped to one of the most stunning defeats in recent J. League history as the Saitama giants were torn apart by second-from-bottom Kashiwa Reysol.

The 4-1 scoreline is only half the story.

Kashiwa's masterful passing game had the Reds chasing shadows, and when Urawa did pour forward they were hit time and again by Reysol's incisive counter-attacks.

Australian defender Eddy Bosnar opened the scoring for United with a thunderbolt free-kick just before half-time, but it was talismanic striker Seiichiro Maki who stole the show, steering home two superb headers after the interval.

I would not like to take a penalty in front of Urawa Reds' supporters at their Saitama stadium, myself. Watch this shootout from an Asian Champions League semi-final against South Korea's Seongnam Ilhwa last week, and marvel at the spectacle of the giant flags. It's really no surprise they won, is it?
