The start of the Allsvenskan has not been kind to Djurgården. I’m sure many people had high expectations. Djurgården is moving into a new arena mid-season, plenty hoped that excitement would carry on to the pitch. Unfortunately it hasn’t really played out like that. Since the previous post, things have gotten a lot worse for the Stockholm club.
Regretfully I didn’t get around to making this post earlier. Too often if I cover an event and don’t get around to making a blog post within the following days then I never do. Feeling that it’s old news I will just wait for the next event I cover and make a post out of that. However I really wanted to include some pictures from this years UFC card in Stockholm, Sweden. If nothing else only because of how it relates to the previous post: Friends & Pears.
After shooting the UFC on Saturday night I had two days of shooting football. Two Stockholm teams making their home debuts in this new season. Sunday was AIK meeting Syrianska FC and Monday was Djurgårdens IF meeting Mjällby AIF. Going into these matches there was a great deal of excitement. It’s a big season for Stockholm teams with 3 of team moving into new arenas.
After having seen two international friendlies, the newly constructed Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden saw it’s first competitive football match when Sweden met Ireland in a World Cup qualification match.
Regardless of whether or not you appreciate Italian football there are certain things you can’t take away from it. One of them is the success of their managers. Few nations have produced as many winning managers. Managers who have not only won a lot, but have also shown the ability to travel outside their local stomping ground and continue to win. At the head of the pack is Giovanni Trapattoni.
