In episode two, we started by talking about some recent news that has caught our attention:

  1. Rich — The new format for the 2017 Finnish Cup.
  2. Mark H — Tim Sparv’s FC Midjylland drawing against Manchester United in the Europa League. His dream draw, apparently.
  3. Mark W — Moshtagh Yaghoubi’s recent comments about racism affecting his feelings towards playing for the National team.

take a closer look at the Finnish National Team;

  • Euro 2016 qualifier autopsy — so near and yet so far!
  • The Romania game that effectively ended Finland’s qualification… last minute heartbreak again.
  • Suggestions of a different formation, to make the most of Roman Eremenko.
  • Markku Kannerva’s impact as an interim coach, and his narrow 4-4-2 formation
  • Mixu Paatelainen’s replacement as manager of Huuhkajat. Who is Hans Backe?
  • 5 things that Hans Backe needs to do to get Finland qualified:
    • Find Pace and width.
    • Win the Baltic Cup.
    • Respond to Form.
    • Give the Veikkausliiga a chance.
    • Get players and agents in the right frame of mind i.e.focused on playing rather than transfers fees.
