As is now normal, we started episode five by covering some recent news stories that have caught our attention:

  1. Rich – Okkonen/Gilligan/Ions scandal
  2. Mark H – Palloliitto’s uncontested Chairman election
  3. Mark W – The joint Nordic bid for Euro 2024

We then moved on to the main subjects of the show:

1. Recent International Games

  • Poland 5-0 Finland 😱
  • Norway 2-0 Finland 😱 😱 😱

2. What did we learn from the first few Veikkausliiga results

  • HJK 2 – 0 Mariehamn
  • PK-35 3 – 4 RoPS
  • Inter P – P SJK

3. Veikkausliiga preview

  • Where we did things a little  differently to ‘normal’ football shows. Did start by choosing our potential Champions, or relegation certainties, nope. The FFS5 team started by predicting who would finish 4th! You can hear who we put into this highly-coveted position by listening to (or watching) the show.

And we didn’t even get onto the subject of the Palloliitto’s plans to prevent players and supporters interacting during the game. More of that, without doubt, in #FFS6.

Remember, if you join us live for the recording, there’s an extra ‘off the record’ section that isn’t included on the podcast. You could join us on Blab, then ask a question in person, or just come on and say hi.

Thanks again for everyone that joined us for the live recording. Follow one (or all) of us on Twitter for advanced warning of the next Show.
