Meistriliiga 2012

so basically everybody expects Nűmme Kalju to win it...would be their first ever title. pretty impressive considering they were a no-name 4th division side in 2004 and made it to the Meistriliiga first time in 2008. it shows how far even a small club can go thanks to the entusiasm of a few dedicated people and marketing geniuses.

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

That's why I love Estonian league, Andy. No one goes to the matches so I don't have to feel anxious being in a crowd. Perfect league for me.

yes you can stand alone in the middle of a snowstorm in early April and watch two amateur sides stumbling over each other on a frozen pitch playing "Premier League" football...only in Estonia!!!

ok to think about it this might also be possible in Greenland...although apparently their league actually gets much higher attendances despite not belonging to FIFA or having real grass pitches alm:

bigsoccer has a 13-page thread about Greenland league lol

What do you know. I love wintry conditions too. People talk about visiting Italy to see San Siro or Spain for the Nou Camp but honestly I'm more intrigued in visiting Estonia to attend a Meistriliiga match.

bigsoccer is curious like that. They have massive threads dedicated to football in Myanmar, Nepal, Afghanistan, Vietnam, etc.

DO IT...maybe you'd even get media attention, an article or news clip about somebody crazy enough to come here from the other side of the world only to watch a league match. :thmbup:

I've read some works from them but not much.

Kross was a very strong historical novel writer...good enough to be considered a possible Nobel prize candidate. Kaplinski is mostly a poet/translator/essay writer/cultural commentator although he has written some novels too. There was a movie about him done recently by some French documentary maker, I'm planning to see it this week.

Returning to my beloved Meistriliiga, then.

There was a big game game played on the weekend between Flora and Kalju and the team who'll win the league, Kalju, took the match 2-0. Where's the suspense?

Levadia were almost upset against Kalev but very late in the game they pulled back two goals to take it 1-2.

Levadia's winner was scored by the Japanese player Mitsuyama.

They even show it live on TV now which would have been unthinkable 10 years ago.
