I was hoping for Juha to post some of his angst, pain and suffering, but it seems grief is a private affair. The Tepsi fans were not impressed with their side, turning their backs on the pitch and their banners upside down, while all the Inter fans in the stadium pissed themselves laughing. It’s amazing just how crucial Chris Cleaver is to TPS, without him they went to pieces. Chatto and Mäkitalo ran the show, and Furuholm finished well.
In other news, TamU messed up big time in Rovaniemi, putting Niemi in midfield with Hjelm on the left wing, and it did not work. This does rather make the TamU-Tepsi game on Thursday a little bit make or break for both sides, as losing it would mean falling behind HJK. HJK have had a tough start, squeaking home against MIFK and KTP, powerhouses of the Finnish game. If they can somehow squeeze a result from VPS and KuPs, they will stick two fingers up at the fixtures computer that has given them such a difficult season opening.
