Football on the television

Just a quick word in praise of YLE’s coverage, as I’ve been pretty darn negative about it for the matches I’ve actually been to. It’s a pretty good programme, and the MIFK win in Valkeakoski was covered very well. Good crowd shots, good interviews, good segments (Popovits’s kids need a new backyard, and the man himself needs to sort out his tracksuit top collection) and an interesting match. All in all, I’m glad I stayed home rather than ventured to the ground. Not sure that’s what Veikkausliiga should be pleased with or aiming for, but anyway – it’s not YLE’s fault.

On Saturday they’re showing HJK v TPS on TV2 at 4pm, which should be a decent game. TPS need to win to guarantee UEFA cup football next year, and HJK want to build some form ahead of the Cup games next week. Should be worth watching.
