GIANT KILLING episode seven


The start of the episode wasn’t what I was expecting.  I was expecting that old man to sneak to the soccer game to see ETU winning maybe 2-1 or 3-1 after coming back from the cliff-hanger goal that they were down by.  Instead, we find out that ETU losses straight-out 4-0.  And the funnier thing is that Tatsumi looks unfazed – I was honestly expecting some genius in tactics but it seems that he was just observing the game.  As a result, the defender Kuro gets pissed off as hell.  Even at the press conference, Tatsumi gets all cocky and dismisses the loss as a result of poor soccer, nothing else.

ETU losses the second game away 2-0 at Hiroshima and Kuro gets even more pissed off.  So in practice in comes down to playing games – Kuro obviously doesn’t partcipate in tennis soccer (which I thought would serve to help with the technical skills) and this costs him a starting spot for the next game.  ETU losses a home 1-2, a game which many claim could’ve been won had Kuro played.   Kuro decides that he would need to transfer clubs since he can’t work under Tatsumi.   As the whole squad goes under pressure and start to break apart, Tatsumi decides that another game is in order to determine the starting line up for the fourth game.  Well, if I had lost three games in a row, I’d be pretty pissed off as well – Kuro storms off the pitch.

Not what I was expecting, but something I’ll welcome.  I think the losses will serve for the effect that Tatsumi will do something revolutionary that will help the team realize that all they have to do to win is to… well, Tatsumi will answer that… eventually.  I was surprised to see the ineffectiveness of our young number 7 but I guess his time will come eventually but damn, that keeper sucks balls.   Seriously, Tatsumi should’ve just managed Tokyo Victory – that would become the unbeatable team and the unbeatable manager.  Well, Tatsumi just lost three times, so maybe he’s not that special after all.  We’ll have to wait and see how the next few games play out.

    Yeah, not what I was expecting either, but it certainly increases the need for him to step up their level of play. The introduction of the reporter was interesting. At first I thought, she really made the right call. After all of those losses, I don’t even know if she is still following the games.

      But it’ll make or break the season how they do in the next few games aka the next one or two episodes XD

    I saw them losing to the Javelins, but didnt think they would lose the next two as well!? Kuro can suck balls, he needs to go and I think thats what Tatsumi wants.
    I think have an idea of what Tatsumi is thinking, Murakoshi is working along with him I think too or at least sticking to plan. If my plan materialises, its going to be awesome!
    Loving this show. 😀
