Lots of rumours without a lot of action...

...here's hoping that I'll be watching a Canuck at home games next season.

Erlandsen considers Gerba

Arne Erlandsen's IFK Göteborg have contacted GIF Sundsvall regarding Ali Gerba. Brann and Rosenborg have also watched the striker.

by Yngve Bergli, 27.10.2005

GIF Sundsvall have been relegated from Allsvenskan this fall, and Gerba is not interested in following the club down a division.

On Thursday it was made public that IFK Göteborg is considering Gerba.

- He's an interesting player. We spoke early on with Urban (Hagblom, club president for GIF) regarding what will happen with the troop in light of relegation. Gerba could provide us with the speed we lack, and as of now we have only three forwards. But we haven't decided what we're going to do, says IFK director Mats Persson.

Per Joar Hansen was interested earlier in the fall, and watched Gerba. Brann, Malmö FF and Dutch Nijmegen have also sent representatives to watch him.

Lars might not play tomorrow:

http://fotball.bladet-tromso.no/nyhetsarkiv/article.jhtml;jsessionid=NKV5ZGESFYPJ3QFIMUNCFEQ?articleID=88454

The short translation is:

Lars H is having a little trouble with an injury in his groin and TIL will decide on saturday if Lars will play against Rosenborg or if they will let him rest until the match against Strasbourg next week.

He will be on the plane to Trondheim but Steinar will wait until saturday to decide who's playing. Erik Sørensen will play instead of Lars if he can't play.

The team will most likely be:

Lars Hirschfeld – Ole Andreas Nilsen, Benjamin Kibebe, Morten Pedersen, Hans Åge Yndestad – Patrice Bernier, Bjørn Johansen, Roar Christensen – Lars Iver Strand, Ole Martin Årst, Stephen Ademolu

Thanks to "Steinvk" from the Isbergets forum for the translation:)

Helmond Sport's Marcel de Jong played 90 minutes at forward in a 4-3-3 in a 1-1 draw with MVV Maastricht. Helmond scored in the 90th minute to draw even. The match report mentions that de Jong set up a teammate who headed onto the crossbar, but was otherwise invisible.

Stalteri played 90 for Tottenham who drew 1-1 with Arsenal. He played well, though it was his foul that gave Arsenal the free kick that allowed them to tie it late, though really the free kick wasn't dangerous and the blame for the goal has to go to the Spurs keeper, England #1, who should have caught or punched the ball but played it right to Pires. 2nd game in a row that he's made a number of good saves but also let in a stinker.

All the Canuck news that's fit to print from the CCC (or at least info that is easily gathered from the boxscores):

- De Vos plays the match as Ipswich draw 1-1 away to Brighton. Ipswich are 13th.

- Pesch picks up a yellow for dissent and is taken off in the 81st minute as Derby trail a Bircham-less QPR 0-2. Final score 1-2 for QPR. QPR are 8th and Derby are 17th.

- Brennan is subbed out in the 67th with no score at home against Sheffield Wednesday. Wednesday then get a goal and win 0-1. Norwich are a dismal 20th.

- Hume plays 77 as Leicester draw 0-0 away to Preston. Leicester are 12th.

Molde's draw was not enough for them to avoid the relegation playoff. They are third from last and will face the loser of the match between 1st Division (2nd tier) Moss and Sandjeford, playing tomorrow midday. They will play home and away, final match at home for Molde. Think that will be this midweek, and the next midweek the 2nd leg.

Interestingly enough, Molde was ahead of Friedrikstad, who should have lost to Start today as the later needed to win to take the Norwegian league. In the end Start lost at home, Valerenga took the league after 13 straight for Rosenborg, and Molde finds themselves in this playoff round.

Molde has three games left then, as they are also playing the Norway Cup final, vs. Lillestrom again next weekend, on November 6.

You win the cup you play in Europe next year, but if you don't pay attention to the playoff, you do so as 2nd tier team.

More on Norway:

Bernier played 90 and Ademolu was subbed out late for Tromso, from reports it seems he was active all game.

Grande played 80 and then was subbed out for Viking.

No Occean today for Odd, wonder why that was.

In Belgium, I see Klukowski is still not playing, it has been 7 weeks now he has been inactive. In fact, since the Canada game in Spain. Is he injured?

Occean had a one game suspension, Kluka is soon back from injury.

Thing is Bruges is playing better now, back on track and staying close to the league lead, so I think he may have to work hard to get back into the lineup.

Kevin McKenna keeps up his scoring pace with a goal at Freiburg in the 46th minute. McKenna's Cottbus are behind 2-1 in the second half.

Need some better live tickers. McKenna did not score for Cottbus.

English non-League wrap-up:

Elliott Godfrey scored the first goal of the match for Hampton & Richmond Borough in their 2-1 away win at East Thurrock. Hampton are top of the Ryman Premier, with an eight-point lead.

Ross Smith played the entire match for Gravesend & Northfleet in their 0-2 home loss to high-flyers Stevenage Borough in the Nationwide Conference. He was given a "7 out of 10" for his performance, which is the average score.

Justin Thompson of Worcester City was delivered the ball right in front of Barrow's goal - "but his weak effort lacked the accuracy to beat the Barrow keeper", according to the Conference North match report in the Non-League Paper (Sunday 30 October, p44).

Greece and Spain:

Dani Fernandes played 90 as Paok fell away to Panathinakos 1-0, goal m. 14 from a striker who was put through and shot a long one in.

Paok is 5th still, and that is Daniel's first league loss.

For Deportivo, Julian de G did a good job starting again today like last week vs. Getafe. Once again he played on the right midfield, though this time he was a bit more mobile, and did change sides with Munitis who started on the left. The latter plays more like a 2nd striker, so De Guzman tends to be more dedicated to midfield tasks though he can go forward in this set up, a 4-2-3-1 they use at home.

In the first half he had a good chance to score, sending a ball wide m. 29. The next 15 minutes he and Munitis caused problems, and the latter called for a penalty on him late in the half.

Getafe pushed hard in the second half, and indeed one of their best chances was when Julian cleared a cross badly and it went off his own crossbar. Heading is probably not his forté. He also had a late giveaway that could have cost them, but did defend hard and was kept on for this reason as Depor hung on for the win. In Spain there is a huge logjam at 16 points, 4-5 teams tied for 4th spot just five points off surprise leader Osasuna.

I notice that it was corrected well after the fact. Where is the best place to go for German live scores?

Club sites usually have a live ticker or for all scores www.bundesliga.de or kicker.de are both good.

Rob Friend's Molde will play Moss in the home and away to decide who ends up in Norway top flight next year. I am not sure, but I have read Molde plays the cup final on the 6th vs. Lillestrom, and it is possible that the first leg of the playoff will be on November 12 in Moss's stadium, Melløs. This would imply that they will play the 2nd leg the next weekend, namely the weekend of our Luxembourg friendly.

If this is the case, it is clear that Friend, the club's key goal scorer, will have to stay with his club for such a crucial date. Too bad for him since rumour has him called up for Canada, but considering what is at stake it is understandable, and vital for his career too that they stay up in the Eliteserien.
