Our defence is crippled and we might have a problem up front with injuries.

I would be very surprised if you don't win this.

To pio omorfo pragma sto kosmo einai na agapas tin AEK!
Det Vackraste i den har varlden, ar att alska AEK!
Самая прекрасная вещь на свете, это любить АЕК!
La plus belle chose dans le monde est l'amour pour l'AEK!
La cosa piu' bella nel' mondo e' di amare l'AEK!
Dünya'da en güzel şey, AEK aşkı.
A legszebb dolog a világon az AEK iránti imádat.

It was a very entertaining match. Hareide finally seems to have gotten the team gelled together. I think Norway deserved the win (I think the chance statistic was 11-4), and we seemed to be moving forward throughout most of the match. Obivously, the point we got was almost stolen away in the dying minute of the match, but that doesn't change my overall view of the match.

After the margins have been against us in both matches against Greece and the first match against Turkey, I only hope that the second match against Turkey will be a different story. With three wins Norway will finally be in the big tournament again.

Its about time Norway made it to a tournament again. I'm a bit worried though, as both Bosnia and Turkey will be tough opponents, and the players have shown that they are prone to make huge blunders in clutch matches, such as Myhre against Turkey, and the absymal defending against Greece, which resulted in 2 goals for them.

I did not see the full match, but it was absolutely an entertaining 1st half I saw. Carew has been a monster lately, and if he could only become a better finisher, he'd be a world class striker.

Here is for hoping
