Ehiorobo Sold

He was a good back-up last season but now I have a good enough squad without him.


Taipale Retirement Date

Tero has been a great servant to the club for many years and I will certaintly offer him a coaching role here.



New Contract

I am delighted to sign a contract which will last untill 2018. I will be able to develop KuPS to be a great European side by then.


It was a very solid month for us, still unbeaten in the league. We are a hefty eleven points ahead of second place MYPA and we will look to further widen that gap in the next few games. Demirci has been our stand-out player this month, scoring and assissting very well. He looks like a very talented youngster who will shine on the international stage.

July Fixtures



We have a very exciting month ahead of us, with Celtic being our main opposition. This will be a true test of my "Banzai Tiki-Taka" tactic and if I can win, it proves that I have a good system at KuPS. Until next time, stay tuned!

Thanks man :) Tiki-taka was an experiment that seemed to fit my players, most notably Demirci and Sohna who are not Finnish lol

I was thinking it was Emma but I know a few people in Finland called Ema :P

The Theater of Dreams


Johnson: "It really is magic"


Nick Johnson: "We have played amazingly well up to now. We are eleven points in front in the league, we have won the League Cup, are in the final of the Finnish Cup and we are in the qualifiers of the Champions League. However, we still have a lot to do. Our players, staff and fans have been magnificent so far but it is now when we need them the most.

We need to make Savon Sanomat Arena a fortress, where we can be unbeatable and tear our opponents to shreds. People talk about the great stadiums around the world, the Nou Camp, Santiago Bernabeu, San Siro, Ataturk, Anfield, and so on. I think that the most fearsome stadium around the world right now is Old Trafford. You just have to look at a certain record which Manchester United hold. When winning at half time, Manchester United have never lost at Old Trafford in the Premier League. If that isn't an amazing stat, I don't know what is! It really is the Theater of Dreams.

That's what I want to build KuPS' home to be like! To be unstoppable, relentless at times. When your team is winning games as much as we have been, it really is magic. Hopefully we can be like that one day."

Manager's Reactions
"We were fantastic this month. At home to Celtic we picked up an amazing win and the at Celtic Park we were unstoppable. Ilja was great this month, he is a true leader and a true hero. We did well to get a draw away to Malmo, now we just need to win or draw at home."

Litmanen Retirement Date

One of the greatest player to have graced the world of football. At his best, he was unplayable. He was a hero for Ajax, possibly their greatest ever player. It will be a sad day when he retires.

We can look back at the month just gone with pride. Now it is time to look at the month ahead with optimism. Malmo will be a tough opponent, they proved that already. Until next time, stay tuned!

Like some teams sing "You'll Never Walk Alone" or "Glory, glory", etc., the KuPS fans sing "Banzai". I found it quite fitting for the name of the tactic :)
