The Sweden Thread



In this thread we can talk about the swedish team.

What should be our lineup? Do we have the chance to get further in this tournament than in 2004? Will Zlatan be a shadow of himself like in the World Cup?

Discuss. :smileani:

Paulie: You're not gonna believe this. He killed sixteen Czechoslovakians. Guy was an interior decorator.

Christopher: His house looked like shit!

If we play as well as we did in 2004 I will be very proud.

There's a few things that makes me nervous. And that is how fit some of our key players are. Ibrahimovic has 40 minutes match practise. Ljungberg and Linderoth, are they even recovered from their injuries?

start elevens I'd like to see based on selected players. No use to whine about who arent selected:

Larsson Ibrahimovic
Ljungberg Källström Linderoth S.Larsson
Nilsson Hansson Mellberg Stoor
Isaksson

Or:

Larsson Rosenberg
S.Larsson Källström Svensson Wilhelmsson
Nilsson Hansson Mellberg Stoor
Shaaban/Isaksson

I dont think Linderoth will recover fully. I would like someone in good form and fully fit to step in instead, I guess Anders Svensson would be the best option in the squad.

Too bad Lagerbäck picked Daniel Andersson instead of Rasmus Lindgren but I guess Lagerbäck wants experience rather than talent.

I dont really trust Hansson, I have a bad feeling he will make alot of misstakes. He has only played one game in which I was impressed with him, against Spain at home in the qualifiers. After that game he is untouchable in Lagerbäcks lineup....

Well there's Majstrovic and Granqvist among the selected as well. But I feel less comfortable with them than Hansson tbh.

Sweden beat Slovenia 1-0 today at Ullevi on the first preparation match before the Euro.

I've only watched the second half of which only the first 15' were worth. Henke Larsson looked very motivated as usual and during that period missed a clear goal chance from a header and hit the post on another occasion. Elmander was absolutely woeful so was Stoor as a RB.

I do hope Zlatan gets well because this team without him doesn't seem to be going very far.

To be fair this game wasn't the real test, Sweden didnt start with the Euro 08 intended eleven, we didn't have a lot of preperation either(trainings and such). It was a very friendly like game imo. Ukraine is the real test pre Euro's, I think Lagerbäck will field the strongest availible then. Until then I shall wait to make a judgement.

Ukraine beat Sweden 1-0. Linderoth really shouldnt be in the squad, his fitness is piss poor. I saw some good and bad things in this game, starting with bad: bad is that we lost obviously, and midfield lost focus second half, Ukraine had too much control. Shaaban made a horrible error at the goal. Good: We were dangerous in many attacks, especially in first half, we were unlucky not to score. Henrik Larsson showed some real class, imo he was our best player. Im not sure what our chances are in Euro's

Teams are meant to suck in friendlies.

Also, I can't imagine Linderoth starting after this game, everything else than Svensson-Källström would be wrong. Another reason why Lindgren should've been called up..

I think it is quite depressing to realise now so close to the start of the Euro that Sweden can not do without a player like Anders Svensson in its starting XI :depress:

Let's just hope he does what he's supposed to, there's always worse options in Daniel Andersson..

what about Pontus Farnerud?

A real shame you guys didn't call up Östlund. He'll be sorely missed.

jeez, Lagerbäcks judgements is sooo bad. I can't believe we are depending on Svensson, with Linderoth so unfit. Or who knows, maybe he starts Linderoth. Either way, we are probably weakest of all teams in Euro on that position..

I dont think it's confirmed, but look in the match thread against Greece and you'll have the most likely ones

You need to look past hype and youth. Anders Svensson is a very good player. Just like Tobbe Nilsson in his day, he couldn't perform in a foreign league but in Allsvenskan and in the NT he's always been very good.

As for Daniel Andersson, I don't get it why he's so disliked. He's a good work horse. Quality, quantity and experience.

Hands up everyone who's seen Rasmus Lindgren play more than 5 full games this season?
