Hammarby thrashed - Quarter finals secured

Of course. It has been kind of entertaining to read major news outlets babble about FC København needing at least a draw to secure the quarter final spot. Actually a loss by five goals would be needed to get rid of Copenhagen. But it was closer to a win by 5 goals. A 4-0 victory taken with relative ease. Beautifully kicked off by a world class bicycle kick goal by Markus Allbäck only to have him carried off pitch on a stretcher later on. He suffered a knee injury and we're all in fear it's serious.

Read about the game at International Herald Tribune (AP) / FC Copenhagen clinches last quarterfinal berth and at Yanks Abroad / RECAP: COPENHAGEN 4 - 0 HAMMARBY (Hammarby fielded American Charlie Davies who did OK).

Quarter final draws are tomorrow. By the way, match statistics on their site are rather detailed.

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.
