    Finland

    As a Finn I'm interested about what you think of our national team. In Finland most of us support them silently but make fun of them also for example: we say "We're a really good "potkupallo" ( "kickball" ) country... too bad everybody else plays football". So what are your opinions? Are we good? Are we bad? Tell me! PS. This is my first thread, lets hope it'll go good

    It does seem like your talent pool is aging quickly...hopefully a new generation can make an impact too, and defeat the evil Swedes!

    You should stick to sitting in the sauna and then rolling through the ice

    Finland just has a too old squad..... you need some good youth academies.

    the evil Swedes! Hopefully we won't be completely horrible at the under 20s championship so some of the young players can make it to the team. SORRY! This went off topic.

    Yeah, we have a really old sqaud ( I think the average is maybe over 30, I'm not sure ). The problem with the transition is we fear that we won't find any better players . And our youth system is awful. I'm thinking of kidnaping Torres', Ronaldo's, Xabi Alonso's, Valdes' and Totti's boys and give all of them a finnish nationality so they can play in our national team

    mikael forssell is worth a follow on twitter, one very funny mofo.

    litmanen must be 55 by now, he is immortal.

    They'd never be able to speak Finnish though. That language is TOO HARD

    That's a great idea. The only reason why he knows about us is because somebody ( most likely a Finn ) pointed out he looks like our president. I mean come on, how boring are we if we spotted that

    It doesn't matter As long as they play good football. And if Finnish is too hard they can learn Swedish. And if my father learnt Finnish anyone can!

    finally, you are one of those finnish people that dont seem depressed with life.

    i have met a few finnish people (on exchange) and wow, they have this ability of sucking the life of the party unless they are drunk (at which point, they just turn weird)
