Pimpong transfers to Viking Stavanger

24 years old Ghanesian midfielder, Razak Pimpong, moves to Viking Stavanger, Norway. (Yes, the Norwegian transfer window is open.)

There's plenty of Danish news articles on the deal but I don't see any in English - Pimpong's Wikipedia entry has already been updated though.

Bollocks: Norwegian ref had a bad day

Royal League 2006/2007 final: Brøndby IF 1 - FC København 0. That's the score and nothing will change that. I'm feeling slightly bitter because the conceded goal was a penalty. Obviously I don't have a picture of the foul, but you can see it at this article at Danish Ekstra Bladet: yes, the ref actually blew his whistle on Grønkjær. Unfortunately that wasn't his only mistake this day.

I'll quit before I build up some real anger here. Read the AP or Reuters story. Or dare visit the Royal League home page.

Copenhagen Files

I love football and I love the Internet. Copenhagen Files is a playground of mine for the latter and a billboard of the former. The focus is on FC København - the #1 club in Copenhagen and Denmark.

I watch every single FC København game - aways usually on the Danish TV, home games currently from my season ticket seat at Parken Stadium. Every now and then a report from the nearby training pitches are to be expected. Or perhaps just from the supporter environment at local parks or bars ;-)

I also like to bet on games which usually takes place online these days. Therefore, I gather numbers and look at them; I analyze, twist, turn and play with them. And some of them ends up here as my probability assessments. But this blog is not about betting.

In the right hand column I collect every single relevant link you can think of. I actually use it for bookmarks often - perhaps they will prove handy to you too? They should easily guide you to the latest info on injuries, club economy, squad value etc.
