Malmö FF UCL Group Stage Preview

Malmö will no doubt see the back of the UEFA Champions League at the end of the group stage. The real question is whether they can continue their European quest in the Europa League. In a word, “no”. Had this team been together at the start of the year, I likely would have said “maybe,” due to the tough group. The team is crazy-good...

Tenth Straight Home Shut-Out Sees Malmö Through Past Celtic

MFF made it to the group stage!   …OF THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE! Just in case you weren’t aware of which tournament they were in, or somehow missed the title.   MFF (and everyone else) finds out their group tomorrow (Europa League draw is Friday), and I start a new job tonight, so unfortunately this won’t be the longest recap. I will however get a...

UCL Qualification: MFF v Celtic First Leg Recap

One thing I didn’t take into account in my preview article is how much bigger Celtic Park is than anything in which Malmö typically plays. The MFF players seemed shell-shocked. Last year the players played in Madrid and Torino, but as I mentioned in the preview, that team has been largely dismantled. While there is a little more overlap on the bench, there is...

UCL Qualification: MFF v Celtic

After Kevie left what is now known as the Free Culture Sports Show, I more-or-less stopped following Celtic (though with our recent move to football-only, I am going to start following again a bit). Even when Kevie was on the show, he was so disgusted by the treatment of Rangers that he didn’t want to talk about it. Behind schedule(?), Rangers are still in...

UCL Qualification Preview: MFF v Žalgiris Vilnius

If you are like me, the name FC Žalgiris (or Vilniaus futbolo klubas Žalgiris as they are known in their native tongue) is vaguely familiar, but you couldn’t place them on a map. It’s possible you know them by another name: 1947 – Dinamo 1948 – Spartakas 1962 – Žalgiris 1993 – Žalgiris-EBSW 1993 – FK Žalgiris 2009 – VMFD Žalgiris 2015 – FK...

FCSS: 2015 Women’s World Cup + UEFA CL Review

June 13 – Champions League Final Review / Women’s World Cup Doug: First, I got to see some of Norway demolishing Thailand. It’s interesting that the southeast Asian countries are good in the women’s game. Is it because the Islamic world doesn’t do women’s sports in full or because size doesn’t matter as much in women’s? Japan are, after all, reigning world champs. Vietnam...

MFF in FIFA14 and Real Life

In real life, MFF ̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣is 6 points clear at the top of the Allsvenskan. They also won 1-0 over FK Ventspils moments ago, sending them to the next round of the UEFA Champions League. The draw for the next round was on July 18th, which means we know Malmö FF will face Sparta Prague. If Malmö lose against Sparta Prague (which looks likely), they...

Starting Over with MFF

To say I was inspired by Malmö FF’s 0-0 draw with FK Ventspils, while technically correct, seems like an overstatement. MFF was uninspiring. In fact, their were boos. I’m not a fan of booing the home team, but if ever was a time, this seemed like a good one. It wasn’t until late that MFF even looked like they wanted to win the game....
