Copenhagen form drags on league resumption


Copenhagen resumed league duty after their winter break on Friday with a defeat to 13th placed (of 14) Edbjerg.  That result damaged an already under-pressure league challenge, Midtjylland are 7 points clear of second place Copenhagen with 10 games remaining.

Form going into the break on 16 December was scrappy.  Four single goal wins followed a 4-1 thumping by Midtjylland.  The last time Copenhagen fans saw their team win a competitive game by more than a single goal was 3 November.  They qualified for the Europa League knockout round courtesy of two wins in the group stage, both against Lugano, who are 7th in Switzerland.

Nothing is easy at this stage away from home in Europe.  Copenhagen are at a level right now that Aberdeen cannot dream of, we will face a far tougher challenge on Thursday than we did on Sunday.  Notwithstanding that, if Neil Lennon is as prepared as he normally is on European nights, there is reason for confidence.

    Our record in the state of Denmark is something rotten.









    Thereby hangs a tale .




    our play’s the thing

  5. COPENHAGEN have agreed to sell top scorer Pieros Sotiriou – 48 hours before facing Celtic.



    The Cypriot striker flew to Kazakhstan today to seal a shock £4million switch to Astana.

  6. This from the BBC site today:



    “Gary Caldwell says Rangers “over-celebrated” their win at Celtic Park and gave their rivals motivation to move clear at the top of the league.



    Steven Gerrard’s side won December’s Old Firm game to move within two points of the Scottish Premiership leaders with a game in hand.



    However, they have dropped eight points since while Celtic have won all of their games in 2020.



    “I think it’s fuelled the fire for Celtic,” Caldwell said of his old club.



    Rangers need ‘best form’ against Braga – Gerrard


    VAR ruins football, says Frimpong


    “They have come back after this break really determined, really driven and this is the time when momentum will play a big part.



    “The game before the break that Rangers won was a big game. I felt like they kind of over-celebrated that game. There was too much emotion from Rangers when there was still a long, long way to go.”



    Caldwell won four trophies, including two league titles, at Celtic and was asked on BBC Radio Scotland’s Sportsound if he saw any way back for Rangers in the race for the league, with Gerrard’s men now 10 points behind, albeit still with a game in hand.



    “I see Celtic winning it,” Caldwell said.”



    Is there another article somewhere were he says Sevco have better players than us?

  7. there be a chef in glasgow with a nice gaff who spent some time under the the the tutelage of Rene Redzepi


    in Noma.


    And Copenhagen have a tasty young striker if they choose to play him.

  8. WDH



    ” there be a chef in glasgow ..”



    Is that to be said in a Long John Silver accent? :-)



    Incidentally ,are you still in touch with PF Ayr?

    One thing I learned a long time ago on CQN is that you can never out-pun JJ when it comes to literature.



    In which light, kudos to the Twitterer self-handled as This Mortal Coyle.

    Macjay wants every hand ball to be a penalty.



    So instead of needing skilful players aiming to score a goal you would just get players aiming to hit other players hands deliberately.



    Is he just as clueless about other subjects outside football?






    And is this individual just as rude to others outside football ?

  11. does Govan stink?

    Here’s an idea @mrandrewdickson


    People who push lies for money under their own name should shut up about anonymity.



    Speaking of which, can you state that you had no involvement whatsoever in the Morelos #translategate video?




    smiley good to see Dickson in the limelight thing
