TL Round 2: Brann - Strømsgodset (16/4-07)

Strømsgodset is back in the tippeliga, bringing lots of joyful memories. Helstad usually scores quite a few against them. I seem to recall it ending 6-2 away the last time they were up.

Petter Vaagan Moen is probably back for the next match, and I expect him to take the left midfield position.

Most likely Brann will start these players :
Dahl - Bjarnason - Sigurdsson - Hanstveit
Huseklepp - Gashi - Andresen - PVM
Winters - Helstad

Sæternes might replace Winters and Solli Huseklepp, but we'll see.

Should be a fun match.

Brann won their first game 0-1 away against Stabæk.
Strømsgodset won their first game 2-1 against Odd Grenland.

Dahl Bjarnason Sigurdsson Hanstveit
Huseklepp Gashi Andresen Vaagan Moen
Sæternes Helstad

This is what I want to see. A very attacking oriented team that will score goals. I predict a rather big victory in this one, 3-0. Helstad and/or Sæternes will probably find the net and one from Gashi perhaps, he was superb against Stabæk.

Sæternes looked really fresh when he came on for Helstad. Looked light on his feet like he used to when he scored buckets of goals for Bodø/Glimt.

Martin Andresen and Bjørn Dahl are doubtful for the game against Godset.

Martin Andresen is struggling with some allergies that are acting up, but the medical personel thinks he will be able to play, too early to tell for sure though.

Bjørn Dahl got a cold and is coughing a lot. Most likely won't be fit for the game tomorrow.

If both miss the game, I guess that means either Guntveit or Solli will take the right back position. Haugen the central midfield.

A shame Tijan Jaiteh's permit hasn't been sent from the Gambian FA yet, would have been interesting to see him in Andresen's position.

Seems like Winters will be replaced by Sæternes cause they want extra aerial strength.

Guntveit - Bjarnason - Sigurdsson - Hanstveit
Solli - Gashi - Andresen - PVM
Sæternes - Helstad

Andersen - Deila - Aas - Bergdølmo
Nyan - Huusko - Leonhardsen
Ohr - Kovacs - Andersson

Leonhardsen is out for today's match with an injury. Christer George replaces him in SIF's starting lineup.

From my perspective, with Aalesund getting a very poor start to the season, it's going to be interesting to see how fellow 2006 1st division team Strømsgodset does against Brann today. I don't think it will say anything about this year's AaFK team, but still.

Also Brann were quite enjoyable last week, and with a sold out crowd at home this should be quite the occation. I'm sorry not to see Huseklepp in the starting lineup though, since he was quite refreshing against Stabæk. Proves what a strong team Brann has this season.

I'm appearantly a slowpoke this season, hence the lack of matchthread updates

We won the game 3-1. Brann started off kinda slow and Godset had a really good first half. They fought hard and won lots of the duels.

In the second half, Brann adjust a bit and started running, not just standing still and waiting for the ball. The difference in squad quality became appearant after that.

Well deserved victory, but Godset has nothing to be ashamed of other than Nyan who should have had a red card for headbutting PVM.

Goals :
0-1 C George (5min). George gets free on the back post and easy scores. Guntveit was totally out of position, should have covered George instead of messing about in front of the goal.
1-1 Helstad (7 min). Class attack directed by Gashi who passes to Sæternes. Solli gets the ball on the wing and gives it to Helstad in front of the goal.
2-1 Helstad (55 min). Solli dribbles off a guy, passes to Guntveit who gives the ball to Helstad in the box.
3-1 Winters (76 min). Solli easily dispatches Bergdølmo and passes hard into the box, Sæternes is just a sec too slow, but Winters is behind him and closes the deal.

Yellow Card : Huseklepp (Brann).
MoM : Solli
Meanie : Nyan
Ref : Tom Henning Øvrebø didn't have a great game. Brann should have had a clear penalty in the first half when Alexander Aas decides to fall down and clutch the ball to his chest in the penalty box, but appearantly handling is allowed in Øvrebø's matches. Nyan also should have had a red card for headbutting PVM, even if it wasn't a serious assault, it's not allowed to act that way on the pitch.
