Estonia vs England on 6th June

Beckham's coming to Estonia and people think it's a big deal :undecide:

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? AndÖ.itís the football, thatís the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

To refresh things up, copy from one of my pevious posts.

In brief, first bloodydamned NT ticketpackages go on sale.

There's total 9100 packages, of witch:
3183 went already to a fan organisation named football hospidal and to clubs
2000 to main sponsor elisa (mobile phone company)
795 was sold to sponsors
445 were given to sponsors
627 were given to members of footy federation, ref's, NT players and coaches
728 to opposite teams
300 in reserv, witch leaves that entirely around
1100 packages go to free sale to ordinary fans like me.

3240 packages to sponsors and 1100 on free sale. Good to know where federation's loyalty stands. I wonder how much profit will everybody make this time, last time some people (including NT players) got more money on black market than is my yearly salary.


---------

Summary, ticketprizes on the black market are 1500-3500 krooni( 96-225 euros) when usual prize is 250 krooni- 16 euros. Profit can go up to 14 times, in case you sell only 1 ticket.

One of the sponsors, newspaper Postimees is having a lottery with it's given tickets, send 50 kroon (3euro) sms (usual sms is 2.50- 0.16 euro), and you may win the ticket.


Bastards, really.

That's ridiculous

But for these prices I might sell my ticket too, I don't care about England that much

And Piiroja is out. I can understand that the situation is frustrating but he blamed everybody for his yellow but himself. Yes, somebody should count how many yellows are there but the fact is, he got it himself, fairly.

Oh, and these guys in Nimeta, they never will make it to stadium.

Yeah, I heard about Piiroja missing the game, it's a major screwup, it's hard to imagine something like this happening on this level. For those who don't know yet, he'll miss the match against England because somebody in our NT staff counted his cards wrong (counted the two cards he got in Russia match as one) and told him before the Croatia match that he can afford getting one more yellow without missing the England game...so he wasn't too careful and picked up a pointless card during the end of the match while helping the attack. And now he's out against England, the biggest match of his career. Not only is he by far our best defender, that match could also have been huge for his future. There's some interest shown in him lately from British clubs but he is in the middle of his career and this might've been pretty much his last chance to impress the scouts from big leagues. This administrative ****up might mean he'll stay in Norway and never reach English leagues he's been dreaming about from the start of his career

The match is shown live on Eurosport. :thmbup:

As far as I can remeber this is the first time when they show an Estonian NT match live.

I hope Klavan isn't playing as a centre back, that's not his position and we don't have a good replacement for him in central midfield. Bärengrub can play as a CB as well, we'll struglle anyway in that department without Piiroja no matter who will be fielded today.

England's leading 1-0 after first half. Sort of expected stuff: we're playing pretty much as good as the current lineup is capable of but it just ain't enough against England, we can get near their penalty box but our attacking play isn't fast and skillful enough and their defenders win the battles easily. England hasn't been particularly impressive so far but J.Cole gave them the lead with a moment of individual magic.

0-3

Owned by David Beckham

As I've said before, our NT is in a serious crisis right now. It's not underperforming, it's the lack of quality that's troubling us. Today, without our best players Oper and Piiroja, we never seemed to have a chance. The limitations of our attacking game were especially obvious against a quality backline like the England one, they had no trouble keeping us under check without breaking much sweat.

Leave those thoughts for the weak minded people there were times not so long ago when Lithuania lost at home to average teams like Georgia and Hungary 0-4 and 1-6 and we bounced back.
