    Yeah it seemed pretty obvious that Yutakayama had lost that bout before he stepped on the dohyo, his facial expressions and body language during the salt-throwing etc all just screamed "I should have come back tomorrow"

    Hokutofuji is looking great this basho, but I think the dark horse at the moment has to be Yoshikaze after his performance last time round

    I don't speak Japanese and even I was like "What the hell is going on" during that Shodai / Endo mono-ii I mean I'm a bit like that during every mono-ii because I don't speak Japanese, but in a different way

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    It was a shame one of his shide got twisted up, though I like to the think the fact it did, and the annoyance he had that he couldn't do anything about it during the dohyo-iri, fed into the thunder he later threw at Tamawashi
