Manager's Reactions
"We were amazing to get to the group stages. Malmo gave it their all but we managed to beat them. This gave us the confidence to go and beat Rosenborg, which we did and by a considerable margin too! Quite extraordinary. Demirci, just a joy to behold. How many times did he prove to be the stand-out player? Too many times to count! He is an inspiration, a hero."

Champions League Groups

I have a very tough group but it is one which I am looking forward to. There are not many more historical stadia than the San Siro, Parc des Princes and of course, Anfield. It will be such a great tournament for me and for KuPS to gain experience against Europe's elite.

Thanks :) I am delighted to have gotten to the groups

Nick Johnson: Tactical Genius


KuPS fans are hailing Irish manager Nick Johnson a "tactical genius" after they saw Johnson lead KuPS to a 5-0 aggregate win over Rosenborg to take KuPS into the Champions' League Group Stages for the first time in KuPS' history.

After a 2-0 win in the home leg, KuPSi fans were quietly confident that they could finish the job in Norway, although there was some doubt, as there always is. However Nick Johnson's strange "Banzai Tika-Taka" as he calls it, with no strikers has been a revelation in Finland this season, and saw off Rosenborg 3-0 on their own ground. This put KuPS into the groups for the 2014-15 Champions League, having already knocked out Scottish giants Celtic and another Norwiegen team Molde in previous rounds.

Some KuPS fans already believe Johnson is a legend of the club, and certainly looks like he could be, and although he's had a rough personal life lately, his footballing life has been nothing but tremendous, and if he keeps going this way, he will certainly be an icon of the club, maybe more.

There has been recent speculation as to whether Johnson's future lies elsewhere on the continent, if he outgrows Kuopio, and the Savon Sanomat Areena. However, Johnson has been quick to leap and reassure fans he won't be leaving any time soon. He's here to challenge the big boys of Europe, and he's here to stay.

Amazing work Ben, I will never get tired of these :)
Tiki-Taka is working for me too, had to try it :) I´ve won Finnish Premier for 6 times in a row :)

I have won OM 3-2 in CL game too, but that is my only win in CL group phase, been there 5 times. European top teams are too tough atm for my team. But building my team stronger every season :)

I hope you win more that me! :)

Yeah the money helps so much. I have facilities being upgraded and I'm hoping to get Savon Sanomat Areena expanded soon because I hate having to play in a different stadium for the European games.

Treble Winning Season



It was a very inconsistent month but we have won the treble again! Litmanen scored a great winner in the cup final and Joenmaki shined for us in the league. A great month in KuPS history! More to come, surely.

October Fixtures


So we have to play PSG and Inter away next month. These will be tough games but a great experience. Until next time, stay tuned!
Congratulations on doing the treble!
