Brazilians and no match practice. The Kawasaki Brazilians probably should be earning big bucks in England or Spain or Italy. Rather than medium sized bucks in Japan. But there is not much you can do if you were top 2 in the A-League more than a year ago, and you are still covered by a salary cap. And your club can't fork out $5 million for a player anyway. And 2 of your stars are suspended.
And the only games you are getting - last before the international break - are ACL.
Too big a hill for CCM.
