How to define one of the world's most sad party? FC Copenhagen gave a bid on it with the defeat against Malmö FF.
the Miserable football game, chancefattige and completely without control was FCK. But anyway on to Europe, which means so much to manager Stale Solbakken, the club's identity and the fans.
It is reported about FC Copenhagen, that it all goes a bit in the stand before the decisive battles in Europe. Most kvalifikationskampene for the group stage. Kept a little more on the money in administration, and there be a additional time of possible investments.
Europe means everything in the club. The mindset has Stale Solbakken stood for. The Norwegian love of international football. His 4-4-2 is created for it, training at Jens Jessens Vej is tailored with this in mind, and all spillerindkøb is assessed in relation to the player's european potential.
the FCK fans have also taken it to themselves. They must hear for the lack of celebration of the championships, but jubelbrølene, since Rosenborg in 2010 was the stepping stone at the entrance to the Champions League, or when Atalanta was sent home in the group stage of the Europa League last year, resounds still in the corners of the Telia Parken.
Such a roar was hard to squeeze out of a truly queer on Thursday evening, where FC Copenhagen was not able at all to control a match against Malmö FF, as, at the most, must be assessed as at the level of the copenhageners - probably a level below, if one takes everything into account.
But with Dame N’Doye far from his top form, Viktor Fischer searching for its excellence, and captain Carlos Zeca in quarantine was FC Copenhagen mediocre and totally without bite.
They have even set the standard. It's all about the Champions League and championships. The first disappeared in a armløs penalty shoot-out in the middle of august, while the last was steamrollered well and truly down in the mid-mulch in the middle of november.
For they are in with the nails in the premier League, and with Dynamo Kiev's biscuits against Lugano, FC Copenhagen crept into a world where you can be paired and measured with clubs like Leverkusen, Inter, Ajax and Manchester United.
It is the world in which manager Stale Solbakken feels most comfortable. The Norwegian believes that he is the only one that really goes up in Europe in the Danish football championship, while the other is for the intake of the pond, as the Norwegian said at the weekend.
It is not entirely true. For looking at the strategies in Brøndby and FC Midtjylland, is the ambitions european. But for the competitors is the European dreams and objectives.
For FC Copenhagen it is so much everyday that the Europa League is a shrug and a semi-tacky torsdagskampe, until they go on to make or break matches in the spring.
It has now happened again, and FC Copenhagen in the autumn with some spillemæssige problems will now be remembered as a small success. A flat one is good enough.
the FCK can now look forward to spring in Europe. They will look forward to a winter break, where the injured players can come in the form, and where the system has set itself at the latest.
And then the copenhageners so again play european the make or break matches. It is a fine achievement - no matter how gray it has been along the way.
