    I like only Shakhtar & Dnipro. Other than that - I hate all coaches and majority of players. I can't wait when Euro 2012 ends and we can fire a lot of officials here because they ruin our league.

    Re: Football: domestic leagues

    Football is unfair sometimes! Unirea Urziceni was our champion two seasons ago and made 8 points in UEFA Champions League. Now they are in bankrupcy, Steaua took all players from them and we loaned them our reserve team and they still won against us. Practically Steaua reserves won against Steaua's first team (

    Partizan is currently #1 in the Serbian league with all victories. And it is almost certain that Partizan will remain the Serbian champion this year as well

    Re: Football: domestic leagues

    Last match in Spain

    Almería 2-2 Real Sociedad
    Almería saved a tie "in extremis" today, so it can be considered a good result for both. As I knew it, Real Sociedad returned to first league willing to be the big team they used to be historically many years ago, but does it also mean that Almería is returning down to earth, so out of first class? We'll see, but I think Almería is one of the "faves" for last places...

    Re: Football: domestic leagues

    We're back to the 90s in Norway. Drillo is leading the NT again, and Nils Arne Eggen is back in charge at Rosenborg, who's won the league 13 times with him in charge. And they're winning again this year as well, with 7 matches left, they're 7 points ahead of Vålerenga (my team), and 13 points ahead of Tromsø in 3rd. One of the remaining matches is Rosenborg-Vålerenga tho, and if Enga wins that match, there might be hope for winning the league, but seeing how Rosenborg has only lost 1 match in the last 2 seasons (against Start in the 27th match last season), I don't think there's any hope left. We'll most likely finish 2nd tho, even after selling the league top scorer Moa to Hannover recently.

    You live in Trondheim and support a team from Oslo?

    Re: Football: domestic leagues

    Yeah, I do. And I've never even lived in Oslo. :P

    It's all because of Rosenborg tho. They won the league 13 years in a row (1992-2004), and somewhere in the middle of that streak, I got tired of Norwegian football. It wasn't a question of who would win the league, it was a question of how early Rosenborg would do it. But in 1997, something happened. Vålerenga was playing in the cup final, and we have a tradition of cup final songs in Norway. Vålerenga's was based on the Chumbawamba hit "Tubthumping", and I liked it immediately. And I decided to cheer for Enga in that match, and they won. And I've been with them thru ups and downs ever since (relegated once, league champion once).

    Re: Football: domestic leagues

    First matches of the 8th round in Liga I:

    Gaz Metan Medias - ,,U" Cluj 3 - 1
    Two good teams, but ,,U" Cluj used the reserves team because in the next round they will play the game every suporter awaits, against their rivals CFR Cluj. Gaz Metan are a good team, not a strong one, but they play good football. It realy pays of for being patient and keeping the same coach for 4 years, even if they relegated once with him. The Brazilian player Eric scored two goals and is the top scorer of the league now, but it realy anoys me that now they want to give him Romanian citizenship and play for our national team when he can't even speak our language.

    Victoria Branesti - Pandurii Targu Jiu 2 - 0
    Pandurii are still celebrating their victory against Universitatea Craiova in the derby of Oltenia last round. Victoria Branesti are a big surprise this season as they are the first team from a village playing in Liga I.

    Universitatea Craiova - Rapid Bucharest 1 - 1
    The referee ruined this game when he gave an unfair penalty to Rapid, Craiova should've won. Anyway Rapid only has one point ahead of us now, and if Steaua wins on Monday we will be on top of the league!

    Re: Football: domestic leagues

    I thought it would be cool to use this thread for other than just results of the league.

    Tomorrow is a big derby-day for me. Most of you would think that I'm only referring to Manchester United-Liverpool, but there is a lot more important match going on for me tomorrow. It has been named "The new firm" by many Danish football-experts and always attracts way more viewers than in any of our European matches. This derby is always sold out and there are several reasons on that.


    Although it is hard I will now try to explain the hate, the rivalry, and differences between these two clubs. I hope you will enjoy it. It is the ultimate battle of Copenhagen, it iiiiiiisss:



    FC København - Brøndby IF


    History:

    I will try to do this part very briefly.

    Let's start with Brøndby. Brøndby is one of the most winning clubs in Danish football of all time. During the 90's they were unbeatable and every other team feared them. They won the league almost every single year and they also reached had succeeded majorly outside the Danish borders. Back then Brøndby's team actually formed the backbone of the Danish national team which later won the European Championsship in 1992. As I mentioned Brøndby experienced great succes in Europe at that time. The club managed to reach the semi-final in UEFA-cup (Europe league, red.) in the 1990-91 season. To sum it all up Brøndby has been the king of Danish football for several decades but in 1992 a new club in Copenhagen was founded...

    FCK was founded back in 1992 and can be considered both an old and new. FCK is rooted more than 100 years of football-tradition but in 1992 Københavns Boldklub (KB) and Boldklubben 1903 merged their teams to found a club with a more international name: FC Copenhagen/København. Since then the club has been aiming for the skies and one of the goals was to reach one of the European tournaments. This desire came true in the 00's, but in the 90's FCK didn't do that well. The league was dominated by Brøndby and FCK only had little succes in the league. However Flemming Østergaard joined the board in 1997 and as the first Danish club ever FCK was introduced on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. The club bought Parken, which is also the home ground for the Danish national team, for 138 millon kroner. Soon things started to evolve into something bigger than most would've expected. FCK became the most succesful Danish club in the 00's and gained a lot of popularity.




    Geography and demography:

    Brøndby is considered a city of its own but it is also one of the ugliest suburbs of Copenhagen so the club's fans want to see themselves as a part of Copenhagen. It is considered a real working-class area but the club has managed to attract fans from any social class anyway. On the contrary we have FC København. The club is located in the fancy inner-part of Copenhagen and if Brøndby would represent lower-class FCK would definitely be characterized as somewhat upper-class. More specifically the club is located on Østerbro (or Eastbridge when translated ) which is quite an expensive area. Brøndby's fans call us the café latte-boys since that is kinda the types of metropolitans that will find FCK more attractive than Brøndby IF.

    Actually I think this tifo shows quite well how the Brøndby-fans consider themselves:


    It says: "In football Brøndby is the capital"



    ..and this shows how the FCK-fans consider the Brøndby-fans:


    It says: "Just get it! This is our city"



    Rivalry:

    Like many other derbies these two clubs don't have many things in common at all. Both clubs represent completely different values and ideas. While FCK is this new international club owned by PS&E (Parken sport and entertainment) Brøndby IF is the club that sticks more to traditional Danish football-values. The Brøndby-fans despise us for being a collaboration between two older clubs. They consider FCK a cold-blooded company only focusing on money rather than a "real" football-club. Brøndby is based on a romantic ideal which (sadly) doesn't work at all in modern football. Since other Danish clubs such as OB and FC Midtjylland have joined them in "just-below-FCK"-placing of the table Brøndby has started to realize that their approach is old-fashioned. According to them we're still a fake-club.

    Basically I don't know why I hate them but I guess I was born with it . I started following FCK in 2001 when Brøndby was still really succesful and FCK hardly won anything. Maybe that is what made me start gaining sympathy for FCK. In school back then everyone were Brøndby-fans so I rebelled against all this. Since FCK really started to set off MANY people have jumped on the bandwagon however and both clubs are now pretty much equal in terms of fans.


    Fans:

    The fan-culture is also very different between these two clubs. This is one of the points where Brøndby is still stronger than us. The loyalty and pure dedication for Brøndby IF is something FCK could need more of sometimes(especially on away-matches). The Brøndby-fans always have impressing tifos and generally the atmosphere is just great. However they tend to be very violent and that is something many of the clubs in Superligaen has suffered from when Brøndby's fans arrive for an away-match. Of course there are lots of moderate fans too but there are some really extreme ones too.

    For instance they are not afraid of putting the away-section on fire:


    This happened not so long ago during an away-match against AC Horsens.



    FCK's ultras are not much better though. This happened a couple of years ago when we met them at Brøndby Stadion. Some few maniacs of our fans started throwing lights at the section with moderate Brøndby-fans including children with their fathers:


    These "fans" represent the most hardcore part of our fanbase



    Here are some more pics of the fans from both clubs when the clubs have met each other:




















    The match starts tomorrow 18:00 CET.

    Brøndby will be hungry for a victory in Parken. They haven't won against us in Parken since 2008.
    In addition it's worth mentioning that we are playing Champions League at the moment so I anxious to see how tired our players are after the match against Rubin Kazan. Brøndby was kicked in the Europe League qualification against Sporting Lissabon so they only have Superligaen to focus on.
