Mark H & Keke from FFS share their experiences of being in the stadium (and on the pitch) as the Finnish national team create a piece of history.
We preview this weekend’s final round of Veikkausliiga games and discuss who might get the European places and these new, European play-off spots. Plus, the re-emergence of Escape to Suomi.
We look back at the recent Euro 2020 qualifiers (and forward to the upcoming games), we try to explain what happens now that the 2019 Veikkausliiga has split into two ‘series’ and we discuss a few Finnish players, who are figuratively (not literally) on fire!
As a supplement to the live recorded Finnish Football Show, Mark W & Mark H meet in person for the first time for a guided tour of SJK Seinäjoki’s OmaSp Stadion.
In episode 23, we discuss the 2019 Veikkausliiga season at the halfway stage. We look back at the disgraceful scenes at the end of the Suomen Cup Final. We also hear Keke trying to remember his trip to Liechtenstein to watch the Finnish national team.
Add-in some short news stories and the new, regular features and it’s another high-standard Finnish Football Show.
In episode 22, we look at Finnish players overseas, some reaching for the stars and some heading in the other direction. We allow Keke to bask in the glory of his Suomen Cup quarter final predictions and look ahead to the semi-finals on 16.5.2019. We then review the first 6-8 rounds of the Veikkausliiga season 2019.
Add-in some news stories about protests, the new, regular features and Mark W’s tantalising tease for FFS23, and it all adds up to another high-standard Finnish Football Show.
In episode 21, we look back to late-2018 and Finland’s successful Nations League campaign. We discuss the 2020 qualifying competition which started last weekend (23rd and 26th March 2019).
We also cover the 2019 Suomen Cup competition, with the group games in February & March 2019, progressing onto the first knockout round in late-March. Add-in some short news stories and a few new, hopefully regular, features and it’s another high-standard Finnish Football Show.
