But the Blågul Fotboll Euro 2012 guide goes against those odds. Four experts, each representing a country in Group D, all predicted elimination for … Continue reading

Round 6 – Allsvenskan Round-up

AIK extended their unbeaten run to 6 matches after a 1-0 win away to Gefle IF. Celso Borges scored the lone goal a mere 52 seconds into the match that saw the Stockholm club collect all 3 points and move them to second in the Allsvenskan. Gefle, who were second best for most of the … Continue reading

Round 5 – Allsvenskan Round-up

 The spectators at Strandvallen were treated to a 7-goal-thriller on Friday evening as Mjällby AIF edged out Djurgårdens IF 4 -3.  This match was very much a game of two halves as the home side did all their scoring in the first half, while the visitors’ comeback-attempt fell just short after a more inspired second … Continue reading

Round 4 – Allsvenskan Round-up

IFK Göteborg failed to overcome Örebro in a match they dominated much of, yet required a late equaliser to get a point.

What should have been an easy take for the Croatian … Continue reading

Ole Mørk interview

The hot Spanish sun beats down on Ole Mørk as we sit down for conversation, mosquito bites pickling on our arms.

Yet the feelings associated with … Continue reading

Round 2 – Allsvenskan Round-up

 It wasn’t just a Good Friday for Åtvidaberg; it was a great Friday in the snow for the Allsvenskan new boys as they continued their winning ways in their first home game of the season. After dictating the attacking play for much of the game, Daniel Hallingström’s thunderous header gave Åtvidaberg the lead after 61 minutes, GAIS took … Continue reading

Remembering….Ole Mørk and Trelleborg

Trelleborg were having an unspectacular 2000 Allsvenskan campaign under Alf Westerberg when the club decided that a change was needed. Ole Mørk had coached in Denmark since the early 1980s and already had a reputation for growing clubs beyond the sum of their parts – this was the manager who had succeeded in taking both BK … Continue reading

Round 1 – Allsvenskan Round-up

What an opening weekend to the season! Our experts all predicted a long season for the two newly promoted clubs – GIF Sundsvall and Åtvidaberg – along with Syrianska. Yet two of the predicted strugglers picked up maximum points with only Sundsvall losing 1-0 at home against Kalmar. Syrianska were the team of the weekend when they defeated … Continue reading
