Final Whistle: Pre Season Special – Ten Goal Thriller in Yokohama | What Will Brendan Rodgers Have Learned?

As far as pre season fixtures go this was an entertaining match up, with both sides displaying their intent to attack from the outset.

For Brendan Rodgers it was a first chance to see his side in action, though they’d have to do without new Bhoys Odin Thiago Holm. Marco Tilio, and a raft of injured players.

Daizen Maeda was the main man against his former side, grabbing a first half hat-trick, with countryman Reo Hatate also impressing.

As expected there was some rustiness at times, and of some concern may be a back four currently missing two key players in Cameron Carter-Vickers and Alistair Johnston.

All in all a good exercise though and the manager will be pleased with the workrate and fitness of the players – but will he have learned anything he didn’t already know?

Tino & Mif were on the mics to bring you all the key talking points from this one.
