Ninth Bell – The 2011 J. League at In Bed With Maradona

8 Dec 2011(Thu)

As an accompaniment to Ben Mabley’s Eight Bells feature on thrilling J. League climaxes for Issue Three of The Blizzard, the award-winning football website In Bed With Maradona has generously carried an additional piece by the same writer summarising the story behind Kashiwa Reysol’s incredible J1 title win in 2011.



Never more than 3 points away: A Blizzard companion piece


The original article in The Blizzard tells the history of Japanese club football through similar summaries of eight previous title races – including Kunishige Kamamoto and Yanmar Diesel in 1974, the advent of the professional era with Zico and Kashima Antlers against Kazuyoshi Miura and Verdy Kawasaki in 1993, and the momentous final day in 2005 when the two Osaka clubs headed a list of five teams battling for the championship until the closing seconds.



The Blizzard contains a wealth of fascinating, in-depth pieces by world-class writers such as Jonathan Wilson, Gabriele Marcotti, and Iain Macintosh. It is available through a pay-what-you-like scheme online, with a minimum price of £6 and a recommended retail price of £12 for the luxuriously beautiful hard copy, or a minimum price of £0.01 and recommended retail price of £3 for the digital alternative (Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Sony Reader, etc).


Many thanks indeed to In Bed With Maradona for their kind cooperation – be sure to check out a terrific variety of other fascinating football tales at inbedwithmaradona.com.

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Kudos!

You can conserve a lot of money and have the time of your thirst for bargains. Most designer companies have realized that people these days are switching to online modes of shopping and thus have made their presence available to shoppers online also. Shopping online saves you time and money for physical travel to the store to find the desired goods.
