Why did Reinumäe retire from professional soccer?
I think he couldn't find motivation to continue on Estonian level.

Though, it seems no other game will be played until next weekend. On the other hand, it seems that the three first points will fly to Tallinn, which isn't that of a surprise... though, I expected Maag might draw, after they hammered Levadia last summer. How are they playing?

Levadia won 4:0. Seems like they're carrying on from the point they stopped last year.

For some reason, this is one of my favourite leagues to bet on. Today I've placed a treble on TVMK, Levadia and JG Maag Tammeka Tartu. I am only worried about the last one; on the other hand, Levadia seem nailed-on, they are 1.01 or 1.02 with certain bookies. :) Bring on the games, I can't wait! :party:

yeah, it's usually very predictable when it comes to big teams, I've heard that quite a lot of foreigners like to bet on Estonian league for that reason

An interesting article in English from uefa.com about the state of Estonian football, written by UEFA delegate and one of the best Estonian football commentators and journalists Margus Luik.

Decision time for Estonia
Wednesday, 14 March 2007
by Margus Luik
from Tallinn


The start of the 2007 domestic season finds Estonia at a crossroads with major efforts still required to fully exploit the nation's footballing potential.

National successes
Since gaining independence in 1991, Estonians such as goalkeeper Mart Poom and forward Andres Oper have made good careers in western Europe while the national team has secured victories against the likes of Russia, Hungary and Latvia as well as creditable draws against Scotland, Turkey, Norway, Greece, Croatia and Denmark.

Work required
However, the current UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifying campaign has been a disappointment so far, with defeats in all three of Estonia's Group E games. And with the current generation of talent yet to capture the attention of foreign clubs, there is an increasing awareness there is work to be done. Disappointing results at youth level are an indication that there are still problems in developing local talent, and while senior national team coach Jelle Goes has been working hard on improving the coach education programme since 2001, six years is clearly not long enough to make up for years of decline.

Low attendances
Domestic football is still a cause for concern. An average attendance of just 166 at Meistriliiga games last season was extremely disappointing, prompting the Estonian Football Federation to promise renewed efforts to promote the competition in the current campaign. Professionalism, meanwhile, is on the decline with five Meistriliiga sides fielding amateur sides this season.

Worrying sign
Perhaps the weakness of Estonia's footballing infrastructure could explain some of those issues. While efforts are being made to encourage youth football, investment is needed from local authorities to create better facilities. At the moment young players are being turned away from coaching programmes due to a lack of resources which is a worrying sign. Significantly, there are still no full-sized indoor pitches in Estonia, an absolute must given the climate. Latvia has three such pitches and Lithuania recently opened its first while they are common across the Baltic in Finland.

Club breakthrough
Against this background of worries, the 2006/07 season marked a notable breakthrough for local club sides with FC Levadia Tallinn knocking Dutch side FC Twente out of the UEFA Cup before putting in a creditable display against Newcastle United FC in the next round. Similar results could be achieved again, but it may take money as well as effort for Estonia to fulfil its footballing ambitions.

Wow, I didn't know that... unless he meant 166k. :happy:

Is it possible to watch Meistriliiga on the net somewhere (i.e. via local TV stations who also broadcast online)?

Estonian Cup goes to form​
by Margus Luik
from Tallinn

The top two sides in the Meistriliiga will also contest the Estonian Cup final after FC Levadia Tallin put paid to holders FC TVMK Tallinn's chances and JK Trans Narva eliminated giant killers JK Tulevik Viljandi-2.

Purje winner
Levadia, who top the table on goal difference from Trans, secured their place in the 15 May showpiece thanks to Ats Purje's header on ten minutes from a Tarmo Kink cross. Trans, meanwhile, remain the only undefeated side in Estonia after a 4-0 victory against Tulevik-2 - the reserve side of the mid-table top-flight club. The underdogs held out for over an hour but two quick goals from this season's top scorer, Dmitri Lipartov, and further strikes by Aleksandr Dubõkin and Vladislav Ivanov sealed the win.

European places
The results also finalised the Estonian qualifiers for European competition next season with FC Flora Tallinn (last term's third-placed club) joining Trans in the UEFA Cup. TVMK will enter the UEFA Intertoto Cup, while Levadia are in the UEFA Champions League first qualifying round.
