Se trata de un blog especializado en el fútbol de éste país del Norte de Europa. Como apasionado del fútbol, al cual empecé a jugar a los 4 años, me apetecía escribir sobre algo que me enloquece y mi idea es aportar algo de mis conocimientos sobre este apasionante deporte. Fiel seguidor del Atleti, soy de esos románticos que creen que para expresar un comentario convincente hay que conocer la materia en profundidad...Nada mejor que haber jugado muchos años, haber visto muchos partidos, leer y escuchar muchos comentarios, para poder aportar conocimiento de éste deporte. Nace y se desarrolla con la idea de dar a conocer un poquito el fútbol de Finlandia, principalmente en lengua castellana, aunque se incluirán algunas opiniones en inglés y finés.En éste blog daré a conocer la "Veikkausliiga" (Liga de Fútbol Finlandesa), sus equipos, jugadores, managers, las selecciones nacionales (competiciones y resultados) y los jugadores finlandeses que desarrollan o han desarrollado sus carreras en las diferentes Ligas Europeas.

SJK (Seinäjoen Jalkapallokerho)

La semana pasada tuve la oportunidad de intercambiar varios emails con unos de los encargados de comunicación de SJK (Seinäjoen Jalkapallokerho), equipo que actualmente milita en Ykkönen y que es uno de los claros candidatos a conseguir el ascenso a la Veikkausliiga en la próxima temporada.
Simplemente voy a reproducir parte de la conversación que pude mantener con él, ya que aporta varios datos interesantes en referencia a la actualidad del equipo. Destacar que el Director de fútbol de SJK, es Keith Amstrong, bastante conocido en Inglaterra y Finlandia, donde ha militado en varios equipos y ha dirigido entre otros a HJK Helsinki.

Last week, I have the chance to change some emails with one of the members of the SJK (Seinäjoen Jalkapallokerho) media team. SJK is actually in Ykkönen, and it is clearly one of the favourites to get the promotion to Veikkausliiga next season.
I am just going to copy a part of the conversation I had with Lari, because I think you can learn a lot about the current situation of SJK (mainly the first team). Just to mention about Keith Amstrong, current Director of football in SJK. Very famous in England and Finland, where he has played many years and managed different teams, such as HJK Helsinki.

"Actually SJK is going to Spain (Salou, Tarragona) at the end of march as part of their preparations for the new season.
SJK also play friendly game there. Opponent isn't confirmed yet.
SJK was there also last year and played against Segunda Division B team CF Badalona. Game tied 2-2 (1-1), Toni Lehtinen and Justin Moose scored for SJK.
SJK Youth team travels there too and they were there also on last season and played friendly game too.
SJK has still some kind of contacts with Atletico Madrid and there might be more players visiting here in future.
Our manager/head coach Simo Valakari, is former Finnish International and played abroad in teams like Motherwell (Scotland), Derby (England) and FC Dallas (USA).
SJK got 15 player contracts at the time for next season:

Luis Fernando (Bra)
Tomas Karike
Tuomas Karjanlahti
Matti Lähitie
Kalle Taimi
Richard Dorman (Wal)
Timo Rauhala
Aki Sipilä
Jyri Hietaharju
Chris Cleaver (Eng)
Johannes Laaksonen
Teemu Penninkangas
Kim Palosaari
Toni Lehtinen
Daniel Caumo (Bra)
There's also lot's of players training with SJK, who doesn't have contract with SJK signed yet.
Most notably Gert Kams, who is Estonian International. Justin Moose (USA), who played last season with SJK. Stanislav Goldberg, Estonian U21 international. Joakim Jans, swedish eighteen year old promising goalkeeper.
SJK Reserve team, Kerho 07, is playing on Finnish Second Division, so SJK needs lot's of players too.
SJK is noted one of the canditates for Ykkönen tittle and promotion to Veikkausliiga. Last season we were on second place. SJK has plan to buld their own stadium here in Seinäjoki.
SJK got excellent training facilities comparing Finnish level and our Youth system is higly regarded. SJK Juniorit (SJK Youth) has 600 players in every age level from 5 to 20. SJK International Academy is managed by Jamie Shore, who was former English youth international and Premier League player.  SJK International Academy plays tournaments around Europe and associates with Jamie Shore Soccer School.
The Mission of SJK is to be the best place in Finland for young players to play and train on highest level possible. SJK want to be Veikkausliiga team soon as 2015 and play on their own stadium on 2015 also"


Many thanks to Lari Paski for all the information about SJK. Kiitos paljon.
