Highlights and tables

I’ve been in the forest chopping wood and sweating in a shed, and have neglected the football scene. Highlights of TamU-Oulu include two dodgy types harassing Ville Lehtinen before kickoff, but the big man couldn’t do much as Oulu lost 4-1.

Veikkausliiga table:

TamU 16 36
FC Haka 16 33
FC Honka 17 26
TPS 17 26
FC Inter 18 23
HJK 17 23
FC Lahti 17 22
MyPa 17 22
VPS 18 22
FC KooTeePee 18 21
FF Jaro 17 19
FC Viikingit 16 17
IFK Mariehamn 17 17
AC Oulu 17 14

In Ykkönen it looks like ground regulations will decide who gets promoted as Veikkausliiga stand firm. I’ll reserve judgment on this as I don’t know too much about the situation. I’d like to see RoPs go up, but if there’s any point in ground regulations they do sometimes have to be enforced. The best resolution would be for RoPs to get a new stadium as soon as possible and be allowed to get promotion. In this case RoPs being kept down might well lead to JJK going up, and they don’t even have floodlights, so it’s hard to see the rationale for the punishment unless Veikkaulsiiga go down the table as far as it takes to get a team able to play in a Veikkausliiga standard ground. Here’s the table, and it looks like PK-35 would be the beneficiaries of that policy. I’ll post a bit more about why that might be a good idea tomorrow.

RoPS 18 12 4 2 32 – 17 40
