Tampere United pretty much ensured they will win the title tonight with a comprehensive win against Haka. They never looked in trouble and looked a much, much classier outfit than Haka, who really struggled to create anything of note.
It may be the European success, the habit of winning or just the fact that the players really believe in themselves now, but TamU are a really great side at the moment. Niemi was excellent, Pohja was full of energy and drive, Savolainen and Wiss dominated the midfield – it was a much better performance than a 2-1 win indicates.
Highlights are here.
Further to my previous comments, I hope TamU’s officials look at the crowd today (8,828) and kick themselves quite hard for messing up the marketing of the Bordeaux game. Lessons learned and all that.
