Round 3: Lillestrøm Hump Hopeless Hønefoss

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

7 Comments

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

Tippeliga Round 1: Rosenborg Sneak Snowy Showdown

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

3 Comments

“Ac Milan have an old squad”. “Arsenal play pretty football”. “Steffen Iversen is a bit fat”. The footballing world is full of these tired, old, yet inescapably accurate clichés. “Rosenborg won in spite of not playing all that well” is well on it’s way towards becoming one of them.Tweet

Disaster for Fredrikstad as minnows spring upset

Saturday, November 7, 2009

6 Comments

When it all comes down to it, football is about putting the ball in the back of the net. And as Fredrikstad’s strikers spurned chance after chance, one of their former frontmen produced two neat finishes and sent last season’s runners-up in the Tippeliga crashing into Adeccoliga-obscurity. FFK-manager Tom Nordlie will no doubt have been [...]

Lyn and Bodø/Glimt are leaving together, but still it’s farewell. And maybe they’ll come back to earth, who can tell? To be honest there are quite a few people to blame. They have no ground. Hopefully things won’t ever be the same again. Did that get your attention? Good, because there’s is bugger all else about [...]

The end is nigh, and just to make it fair, every game of the last two rounds will be played simultaneously. Wait, wait, that didn’t make sense. In both of the two last rounds every game will be played, oh heck, you get the idea..Tweet

Tippeliga round 28: Farewell to Mad Martin?

..the nickname that is, not the man. The man isn’t going anywhere, and must be feeling almost as smug as Dag Eilev Fagermo these days as Vålerenga make it four straight wins. Down in the bottom end of things Bodø/Glimt are as good as gone, while Lillestrøm might just snatch peril from the jaws of [...]

Tippeliga round 26: Rosenborg win the league with a month to spare

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

After winning in Molde this Sunday Rosenborg are now a frankly ridiculous 17 points ahead of their closest rivals, and even though there’s over a month left of the season it’s now a mathematical fact: Rosenborg have won the 2009 Tippeliga.Tweet
