The whole Tippeliga-thing isn’t really working out so far for Hønefoss who were thumped 6-0 at Åråsen. Elsewhere Kongsvinger are also pointless after the first three, pre-season favorites Rosenborg, Molde, Viking and Stabæk all dropped points and there were more peculiar pleasantries from Kjetil Rekdal..»crosslinked«Tweet

Ramovic poop Rosenborg’s party while the cup yields more madness

Thursday, September 24, 2009

Rosenborg could have mathematically secured their 2009 Tippeliga title with a remarkable five games to spare if they had beaten Tromsø last night. But TIL-keeper Sead Ramovic was eager to show after this weekend’s shenanigans that he isn’t just a hopelessly immature overpaid dimwit, he is in fact a hopelessly immature overpaid dimwit who on [...]

Hello!?! Can you hear us?! As the over-rated and over-hyped (though quite good, to be fair) English Premier League attempts yet again to overshadow every other sporting event on the planet, we here at NFN know we have to work hard to grab your precious attention. I mean, how can anyone possibly be expected to [...]

Norwegian cup finally gets interesting

Monday, August 10, 2009

10 Comments

Having given the Norwegian cup a deservedly wide berth so far due to the relentless tedium of the thing, the quarter finals were so jam-packed with incident that NFN can no longer ignore it. Like a kind of weird uncle in the Norwegian footballing family, the 2009 Norwegian cup has gone from annoyingly dull to [...]

Tippeliga round 19: Irrepressible Rosenborg, irrecoverable Lyn

Monday, July 27, 2009

The chances of this season’s title race getting interesting look about as slim as Lyn’s chances of staying up, as Rosenborg’s mental strength and superior squad-depth yet again earn them a late win. Rivals Molde on the other hand missed chance after chance and ended up dropping points..Tweet

Diouf off to Manchester United – Norwegians rejoice

Friday, July 17, 2009

4 Comments

When a nation’s domestic football league loses one of it’s biggest attractions the rational emotional response is probably resignation, but not so much in Manchester United-loving Norway. As the initial shock wore off, the overriding emotion that emerged appeares to be somewhere between pride and elation. “It must be said to be the biggest transfer [...]

As the curtains close on part one of the Tippeliga, the 18th round proved a highly appropriate ending: Rosenborg won without impressing anyone, Molde won and impressed everyone, Lyn shot themselves in the foot and the rest was all a bit random. Now, nothing would be more gratifying than to report that the bullies from [...]

You heard me. And after a fairly hectic summer-period one imagines quite a few of the Tippeliga players could do with a rest as well, which is why it’s so convenient that after this weekend the Tippeliga takes a two week holiday. Before that though there is a potentially cracking round of matches to be [...]
