A fantastic opportunity turned down. This must be the strangest decision that football has witnessed in modern times, but it certainly shows the respect Kalle has for Peimari - as he seeks to build upon the foundations he has set. The board must be delighted with his decision!
A very big job offered very early in Kalle's managerial career. I am sure the fact that he had aglittering playing career helped with his reputation but you dont get offered the German national side job unless you have impressed as a manger. It shows just how impressive Kalle's start has been.
Now that is a big loss for such a good quality and highly-regarded player. You have built up a great lead at the top without him though so promotion is still very much on the cards, it's just a matter of how Sjoroos reacts when he regains full fitness.
A huge loss for Peimari, as Sjoroos is someone you can always rely on to chip in with the goals. His injury is a devastating one, but I still think the team will have enough about them to get the job done. Hopefully when he returns, he returns as the same player. Long-term injuries can be detrimental to a player, let's hope this doesn't affect him down the line - as clearly he has the ability to impress at a higher-level, given the interest from top-flight clubs earlier in the year.
The remaining games are merely a formality. However, the finances for your arrival in the Veikkausliiga are not looking particularly healthy - could do with some fixing!
The league title looks to be yours and you're indeed correct that it would take a monumental f*ck up for you to surrender your position. Your dominance of the division certainly merits the lead you have in your possession. The finances aren't particularly fantastic, right now, but I would imagine promotion to the top-flight would see an increase in this department which would allow for a bit more of an income to be made.
Never in doubt. Winning the league with seven games to go is very impressive and hopefully you can end the year undefeated. Turning professional is another boast and hopefully the promotion should help the financial situation out. Good to see Kalle has committed to another contract for another few years and I highly doubt that relegation clause will come into affect!
And there it is! We've been awaiting this confirmation for some time now. Congratulations to Kalle on winning the title and earning promotion to the top-flight of Finnish football. It's a remarkable achievement given the rise he and the club have endured to reach the very top in such a short amount of time. The decision to become a professional club is one that will benefit everyone at the club, especially the younger players as mentioned. I suspect Peimari will more than establish themselves next season.
Good story thus far. Congratulations on securing the second division title and congratulations on becoming a professional outfit. Good luck for the future.
Good to see that business is being conducted nice and early in preparation for next season. It'll be a huge milestone in the club's history. Antman, certainly, looks to be the best of the three and I'm intrigued about what impact he will make in the side next season. I'm very excited about what kind of impression Peimari will make next season, as I have high hopes!
Some very quick moves being made, I like it. The signings all look to be good deals and will in someway play a part next season. The massive €250 deal for Antman, looks a good one on paper, hopefully he continues to develop and I am sure he will be a key player for years to come.
