Spring season kick-off

Sometimes it's a bit annoying but there are other teams in the Danish league. Spring season kicks off today so here are a few links about it in general.

Incomplete but long list of transfers @ Ekstra Bladet. Since then at least one significant transfer has been made when FC Nordsjælland sold goalie Kim Christensen to Swedish champs IFK Göteborg. They have signed a new one but must be considered weakened.

Top teams: AaB is topping the league right now but will have to finish without Rade Prica whom they have shipped off to Sunderland.
AC Horsens coach Kent Nielsen doesn't belive in bronze medals (Source in Danish) so why should we? FC Midtjylland's Winston Reid is out injured for about a month and a half and coach Erik Rasmussen has declared his resignment following this season. OB will be missing a central defender obviously. Both OB and Midtjylland are expected to finish top three rather than top five though.

Middle teams: Randers FC has had four players out ill this week and didn't doo too well in the cup vs Brøndby. As mentioned FC Nordsjælland will miss their goalie but probably still produce plenty of chances and get the occasional sensational win. How Esbjerg fB does depends on how Niki Zimling does and right now he's injured. Brøndby IF, our old rivals, has finally signed a manager. Hermann Haraldsson proved both optimist and/or funny in instantly declaring a goal of being the wealthiest club in Scandinavia and finishing top four this season. It's possible but we'll see.

Fighting for survival: AGF has a nice white shirt and the top scorer, Peter Graulund. I wish they make it. Viborg FF are doomed for relegation it seems but have signed none other than Elvis (Wikipedia). Lyngby will take their first of many beatings this Sunday. Goodbye, Lyngby.

Also, there is a jersey gallery @ Ekstra Bladet.

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.
