[Podcast] Finnish Football Show 37: Supporting Glen Kamara | Huuhkajat Squad Announced | Suomen Cup Delays | World Cup 2022 Qualifiers

There’s only one place to start this episode, so we look back at the disgraceful racist behaviour towards Glen Kamara last week (let’s not give the offender or his club any more publicity here!) This show was hosted by Keke with Mark H and Rich, who also discuss the Finland National team squad that was just announced and preview the three upcoming games; Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ukraine and Switzerland.

They also talk about the recent result (singular) in the Suomen Cup and consider how the Veikkausliiga season will be affected by an upswing in COVID cases in Finland. They even find time for a quick ‘Ja sillΓ€ sipuli..‘ and to throw a little MORE shade at Mark W for moonlighting with other podcasts about Finnish football πŸ˜‰

[Podcast] In Conversation with… Paula Myllyoja

Mark W joins Keke for this episode of In Conversation, on this occasion with Pink Bari and Helmarit goalkeeper, Paula Myllyoja. This interview ran so long, that we made two episodes. In the first, Paula talks us through her international career to-date and her hopes for Euro 2021. In the second, we talk about her club career and her battle against her biggest “injury” – leukemia and a brain haemorrhage – an incredible story!

Episode 1 – Paula & the Helmarit

Episode 2 – Paula’s Club Career & Return From “Injury”

[Podcast] Finnish Football Show 36: Helmarit Qualify For Euro 2021 🌟 | Suomen Cup Update | Huuhkajat Fixtures 2021

The Suomen Cup has progressed through the groups stages, so we look back at the recent action and forward to the upcoming knockout games. We also discuss the recently released 2021 fixture list for the Finland Mens National Team, the Huuhkajat. We blow a little smoke up Keke’s a** for the interviews he’s arranged recently in our FFS In Conversation… series. And we throw a little shade at Mark W for moonlighting with other podcasts about Finnish football 😱

But there’s only one place we can start and that is by discussing the Finland Womens National Team, the Helmarit, who stormed through their qualification group for Euro 2021 (which will be hosted in the UK in 2022, of course.)
