[Podcast] Keke In Spain, Huuhkajat Friendlies, Helmarit World Cup Qualifiers, Veikkausliiga Starts, Stadium Woes

A ‘Finnish Football Show Lite‘ episode, as Rich and Keke get together to look back at Keke’s trip to Murcia for the Huuhkajat training camp, which included a seat in the press box for the two practice games against Iceland and Slovakia. They also look forward to the Helmarit World Cup qualifiers, against Slovakia and Georgia.

They wrap up by looking at the first weekend of Veikkausliiga action, which included the first managerial casualty of the season, and venue confusion, as some stadiums are not yet ready to be used – because of the incessant SNOW!! 🤬

Join Mark (@explorefinland),  Mark (@FCSuomi),  Keke (@kekemyllari) and Rich (@EscapeToSuomi) for regular episodes, where 4 old blokes sit and talk about football in Finland. In English.

The show is now recorded on Zoom & published on PodBean. Follow the Finnish Football Show on PodBean for announcements of future episodes and to join any future live shows.

  • Charlotte Patterson@kirbyhazard on Twitter
    • Recently listened to the entire FFS back catalogues in just SEVEN weeks! 🤯
    • She is a nurse with an interest in Asian football and Women’s football AND is an Assistant Researcher for @FootballManager – so she probably has as little free time as the FFS team!!!
