Another Copenhagen club: Lyngby BK

Lyngby Stadion - lystårn

FC København is of course not the one and only Copenhagen club. It's just the biggest, oldest, best and the only one with real international class. But this weekend they played away in the other end of Denmark (0-0 in Aalborg Saturday) so I clenched my thirst for live football with a visit to Lyngby on Sunday.

Visiting Lyngby is also a visit to the other end of the league table. Before this weekend they were rock bottom. The grilled sausages are semi self service but actually better than any food you can buy in Parken. The cheerleaders appeared to be school girls. Concrete and grass stands are separated by hedges.

Lyngby BK beat visiting Viborg FF 2-0 in a game that was a lot more entertaining than the AaB - FC København appeared on TV. Lyngby sports an attacking style of play with emphasis on fast, precise passes utilizing both wings. Defensively they run a lottery business. Their goalie is Rune Pedersen, formerly FC København. Both teams managed to miss a couple of enormous scoring opportunities.

I shot a short video of the native fans doing their tribal thing.

Visiting Lyngby stadium is no problem. From Copenhagen central station take trains B or E north for about 15 minutes. From Lyngby train station it's a short walk or bus 182, 183 or 300S for just a couple of minutes. Follow fans in blue shirts.

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.
