[FM22] Færeyinga saga

Recommended Posts

After seeing this post by @OlivierL in FMCU discussion I noticed a team that might be interesting to manage. Ítróttarfelagið Føroyar, the club founded by Faroe Islanders living in Copenhagen, is playing in 6th Danish tier and potentially can boost the national team.

1702460.png

I couldn’t find a database for 6th level in Denmark, so had to modify Riddler’s file from workshop, swapping Føroyar with the lowest reputation team based in Copenhagen (also added relegation from the 5th level, geographical borders for the divisions and set the league length to 27 games instead of 18, as they have it IRL). Seems to be working well after several testing seasons.

BRZAZDX.png

In addition to Danish and Faroese leagues, I enabled those where I’ve seen Faroese newgens before.

QE4ndga.png

Because who else? The man who scored the most famous goal in the islands history and played for the national team in two sports – football and… chess!

s1QKtpM.png

I’m planning to sign only Faroese players, so this club culture is totally suitable (though it’s not hardcoded, and in the test run AI signed a full squad of Danish players). Also I hope to get a youth academy soon (so far we don’t have any) and develop our own youth which should be much better than it could be in Faroese league (I did some experiments creating teams from low rating nations in the top leagues, and they were able to produce some top level newgens, so I guess the league where the team plays is more important than its real location in terms of youth rating).

EXEKONw.png

The best eleven, where two players clearly stand out – right-back Gestur Dam (who is also an assistant manager of our reserve team) and midfielder Rogvi Joensen. I hope they won’t be poached by higher division teams soon. And with an average age of 29 we certainly will need some refreshment from the islands.

7ptWy93.png

Despite having a much lower reputation than other teams in this division we are predicted to finish mid-table, which is really encouraging. Dam and Joensen are assessed as the best players on their positions.

Speaking of the national team, I'm not going to manage it from the start but certainly will apply for the vacant job when our players in the club become good enough to be selected.

The season started with a hard test, as the cup draw put us against B93, nine times Danish champions (last one in 1946 though) playing in the third tier now. The game was quite boring but we got our chance when a substitute striker Jakup Joensen seized on a poor backpass by defender and scored the winning goal! The next opposition will be Karslunde, a mid-table side from 4th tier.

The league form is perfect so far, poacher Jacobsen (4+3) and mezzala Justinussen (5+1) formed an excellent link upfront while Rogvi Joensen is leading the division with 4 assists.

September 2021

icHjF7n.png

A huge overhaul you don’t usually expect in September, but I selected ‘disable first transfer window’ option thinking that it only sets all budgets to zero and doesn't affect amateur clubs. So the window closed and only now we could sign free agents, and the advantage of being amateurs is that you can sign anyone not worrying about money :D Also as I said, we don’t have proper youth intakes for now, but… there were newgens in the U19 national team, some of them were good enough for being starters here! 

DC Henriksen, AMR Reidar Hansen (he has Faroese second nationality) and ST Jakup Hansen go straight to the first team. DL Olsen, MC Helt (luckily has a middle name, because he actually was second Jakup Hansen we signed on the same day :D ), AMR Petersen and ST Ingi Dam will be rotation options. 

WXBJvvq.png

Two players left, Jakup Joensen wasn't a good striker but his winning goal against B93 remains a landmark for us, and Leifsson was a backup goalkeeper.

hw0NpSl.png

One of the August heroes, Teitur Justinussen started the new month with a red card, still we managed to score twice while playing shorthanded against a higher seeded team and face another 4th tier side next! Unfortunately, luck wasn’t on our side against Dalum, too many shots missed in regulation time and Gestur Dam hit the bar in shootout. Other way we would have hosted a Superliga team OB in the next round.

Two draws allowed Ishøj to catch us, so this final September game became a battle for the top spot. It certainly wasn’t the most entertaining game to watch, but at least we kept the lead on better goal difference.

National team: 0-2 (H) vs Denmark, 0-3 (H) vs Austria, 1-3 (A) vs Scotland in Euro qualifiers. At least they scored a goal.

U21: 0-3 (H) vs Spain, 1-0 (A) vs Estonia in Euro qualifiers.

U19: 2-0 (A) vs Lithuania, 2-1 (A) vs Armenia in friendlies. The most successful and the most interesting team for us, as we signed 8 of its players.

More youngsters added, and Ovi Høgnesen is actually the best left winger in our squad now! Andrias Poulsen is the only experienced player joined, and he will be a starting DM.

 LVfGXP6.png

Some reserve players left for the lower division teams.

lIVlH0r.png

Ingi Dam had a nice goalscoring debut against Brønshøj but suffered an injury in the same game and will miss over a month. Though apart of this goal, we still depend more on those players who were here at start, young talents need time to blend into the squad.

Despite only winning twice we still had a better month than Ishøj and stayed on top with almost half of the season already played.

November 2021

Won’t post everyone who joined, but we managed to sign a good left-back Bergur Gregersen (obviously going to be a starter) and another promising left winger Heðin Christiansen.

Liqm7zt.png

That’s the first notable departure, Jacobsen had a great start with us and still remains the best goalscorer, but he’s not actually so good to keep him.

fm5ykl5.png

Greve ended our unbeaten run which lasted from the start, but we bounced back with two away wins over 3rd and 2nd placed teams! Reidar Hansen scored both winning goals and Ingi Dam got a hat-trick, our youth is taking the lead :thup:

TRmPxHb.png

Seven points with ten games to go is not a guarantee, but a really solid advantage that we should keep to take the only promotion spot. Just hope that we won’t lose any valuable squad members during the long winter break.

21px-Flag_of_the_Faroe_Islands.svg.png Islands news

National team: 1-1 (H) vs Scotland, 0-5 (A) vs Denmark in Euro qualifiers. The second point for the Faroes in this group (there was also 0-0 against Moldova in March).

FIFA ranking – 127th (Kyvo6Lq.png 4)

U21: 0-3 (A) vs Ukraine, 0-4 (A) vs Spain in Euro qualifiers.

U19: 0-4 (A) vs Iceland, 4-0 (A) vs Kosovo in friendlies.

U18: 2-1 (H) vs Luxembourg, 2-1 (H) vs Cyprus, 3-0 (H) vs Azerbaijan in Euro preliminary round. I don’t understand how this new system with U18/19 Euros works now, but Faroes promoted to the Group B (guess Group A means the Euro itself?)

Faroese Cup: HB defeated KI in the final, a very disappointing season ending for the Klaksvik team.

Winter 2021/22

As Faroese season ends in December, winter transfer window gives us a chance to sign better players whose contracts run out.

Poul Nolsøe Mikkelsen – a top defender for this level without any missing key attributes, strange that he actually spent two years without a team.

Isak Simonsen – was Faroese champion in 2019 with KI, will mostly play as a left winger.

Hannes Agnarsson – released from B36, where he scored 5 goals in 22 games last season. I will use him as a right inverted winger.

Levi Hanssen – the most experienced player in our squad now, three caps for the national team and four league titles.

Samal Joensen – an interesting player, physical numbers are awful but he has everything a playmaker needs.

Ellington Guiste – will be a third choice striker, but has a good potential and a very interesting nationality mix – Faroes/Dominica! (there’s also a Faroese/Ethiopian but he has more chances to play for Ethiopia than for our first team :D

J4gdg8Y.png

And we lost one of our key players to Faroese top division :( Not that he really played so well (average rating below 7), but still would be hard to replace. Young Jannik Poulsen will be a starter now. Also Greve, the only team that could beat us so far, tried to poach our first choice keeper Lindholm, luckily he preferred to accept our offer. 

Fun fact – when I needed to submit squad numbers for the new signings, it turned out that we had exactly 99 players :D

13-0 in three games, what a way to secure the title! And guess we were celebrating all the week before a trip to BK Union :D 

May 2022

3fXQ9RL.png

Three final games which we played without any motivation, but still wanted to win (and with such a schedule there wasn’t any need in rotation as well).

pnTV3H6.png

iyitxTC.png

Our new wingers became the league’s two best players, and Dam almost won the best goalscorer title despite only playing half of the season.

Squad stats

Only two players remained in the first eleven during the whole season – Rogvi Joensen (well, that could be predicted) and goalkeeper Ragnar Lindholm (he actually did well, but I think we’ll need to find someone better to play in a higher division).

So, preparing for the fourth tier now. Judging from the cup results (confident win over 10th placed team, a draw against 3rd, and that’s before the winter transfers), we should be competitive there.

Our key midfielder received some offers from semi-pro 3rd tier teams, but preferred to stay! And actually the first team remained unchanged from the last season, apart from a backup left defender Gunnarsson who decided to retire.

befJ43i.png

We are predicted to go down, which isn’t a surprise as we still have reputation lower than most of the 5th tier teams. Though Agnarsson and Joenson are selected among the top players of this division.

OB could become our cup opponents last season if we won that shootout against Dalum, and now we finally met. They relegated from the top tier but obviously were a much better team, still we were ready to face them and scored in a counter just before half-time! Second half was much harder, OB were sitting on our goal, finally equalized and scored twice more, both times disallowed for offsides. In extra time all our key players were extremely tired, somehow we withstood the pressure. The last substitution I’ve made was a ‘van Gaal move’ – Lindholm had a good game and saved us several times but I felt that Sonni Højgaard, who is 10 cm higher, could have a better chance in shootout. And that worked, he saved the seventh shot to give us a surprising win over a professional team! Unfortunately, this all was useless as then we again faced Dalum and were awful in front of goal with almost 4 xG :( 

The league started well, we are unbeaten so far and should at least qualify for the promotion stage (after 22 games the league splits in half, teams in both of them play each other twice more).

First loss in the league was fully deserved, Næsby outplayed us and could score more than one free kick. Two draws extended our winless run to four games, before we finally snapped it against Holbæk, the team that promoted from another 5th tier group but was predicted to finish much higher. Levi Hanssen, our most experienced player scored twice to secure this long-awaited win.

So far we see a breakaway leader, three outsiders without a single victory and all other teams which most likely will contest the remaining five places in the top group.

After a mediocre September we found an excellent form, winning all five games! That included the first defeat handed to the league leaders, on their stadium and after conceding first. Levi Hanssen was the hero again, equalizing just before half-time, and then our defenders scored twice from Rogvi Joensen’s set pieces.

m5gjFxT.png

That defeat against us actually hit Vanløse so hard, that they couldn’t win a single game after and we took the top spot!

21px-Flag_of_the_Faroe_Islands.svg.png Islands news

Betrideildin: HB won the record 25th title, KI finished second once again. B68 relegated with Gestur Dam in their squad, probably we’ll be able to bring him back.

Before the last game of the year we signed a great right-back for this level – Joannes Danielsen, capped 9 times for the Faroes, who was a free agent since summer but didn’t want to play for an amateur team until now.

MymXCAG.png

Three home fixtures were a chance to continue our winning run, but Brabrand managed to stop us. The final game before winter break was against Dalum, the team we couldn’t beat three times already, and this match could go the same way – they took the lead twice, but our young strikers turned things around in just 7 minutes! And Danielsen made an immediate impact, assisting to the winning goal.

Six points over the closest pursuers and a close group behind them, the battle in promotion group should be very interesting.

We lost our best player, and what’s even worse – he preferred to join our division rivals (also an amateur team) despite having an offer from Faroese semi-pro side :seagull:

As usual, a lot of players were signed after new year, but actually only two of them are worth noticing: Bjarti Vitalis Mørk – our new first choice in goal, and Kristoffur Jakobsen – veteran midfielder, unlikely to become a regular starter, but as a model citizen he can help in mentoring our youngsters.

Agnarsson’s departure caused us some problems in attack, but nothing too serious so far. Reidar Hansen, his direct replacement on the right wing, scored twice to win the first game of 2023 for us. An away draw against 5th placed Roskilde was a good result as we played shorthanded from 15th minute, and finally Ingi Dam had his best game of the season to secure a big win over the league's bottom team.

djPyxty.png

The gap is now seven points, but with two games against each team in the top six it’s not a huge advantage at all.

21px-Flag_of_the_Faroe_Islands.svg.png Islands news

National team: 1-1 (A) vs Ireland, 2-0 (H) vs Greece in Euro qualifiers. Amazing start of the group, three goals from striker Klæmint Andresson Olsen (32 years, plays in Swedish top tier) sent Faroes to the provisional 2nd place!

A comeback win over Vanløse let us finish the first stage with 10 points advantage! The promotion stage had a lot more condensed schedule (especially comparing to previous months, when we had two weeks between league games) and without much room for rotation I feared that we wouldn’t be so fresh and productive. But instead our opponents had a lot more troubles, and in first three games we gained five more points over them, which actually meant… that if we defeat either Brabrand or Vanløse, we won’t finish lower than second place and so will win promotion to the third tier. Well, mathematically we needed four points and did it anyway. The unexpected hero of the month was Gilli Roason, who played for reserves until March but proved to be a better right-wing choice than Hansen.

1CXRR1j.png

And one really important news item we’ve got:

apNUZGV.png

So our key players won’t be poached so easily, but at the same time that may bring some financial concerns as our income is way too small now.

Played without any motivation, but still finished this part of the season unbeaten!

0P0QUau.png

Brabrand promoted together with us. Agnarsson wasn’t as impressive as he was in our squad (2+2 and 6.89 average rating), but still helped them.

Squad stats

Surprisingly only one our player was selected into the team of the year, and that was… Levi Hanssen. I agree, he had a good season despite the age, but we surely had better candidates to be included. Though this award doesn’t seem to be very logical, 5 of 11 players are from bottom six teams, and top five players in average rating are not selected.

gpIBwnR.png

Our stadium is getting expanded, but with average attendance of 156 that isn’t really useful for us now.

Pre-season 2023/24

Turning semi-pro didn’t give us a broader choice of players to sign, the only first team transfer was agreed when we were still amateurs – Heri Hjalt Mohr, released from HB after winning the Faroese league (he was really useful that season, 2+5 and 7.16 rating) and spent half a year on free transfer before joining us. Will mostly play as a right winger.

We signed part-time contracts with most of the team members, regular starters got from 85 to 400 euros per week, and all others agreed to… 1 euro :D Actually they wanted an amateur contracts, but this trick protects them from free bids. Also our veteran defender Roi Danielsen wanted to become a player/scout, and his staff attributes appeared to be really great (too bad that we can't send scouts to the Faroes yet)! 

aFmtNo3.png

Development loans also became possible with part-time contracts for our youth. All these teams have much better facilities, and our players will have first team practice there.

Levi Hanssen decided to retire, and that’s actually a blow for us as we couldn’t find a decent central midfielder to replace him.

Predicted last, and our key players are rated worst in the division as well. So a tough battle for survival is expected.

Shortly before the deadline we loaned a left-back Aksel Heinesen from Randers (they also have a Faroese center-back who would have been a starter, but refused to join us).

rxrqT8J.png

We were 0-3 behind against Middelfart after conceding two penalties but had an encouraging ending, and that form was fully transferred to the next game! 6-0 against a team predicted third – that’s certainly not what I could expect from our first game at home! Though we are very inconsistent so far, lost to Frem after missing too many chances and only saved a draw against Hillerød which we must defeat to stay clear of relegation.

The cup started with a win over lower division amateurs, and then we’ll face our first ever Superliga opponents – Helsingør.

September was a difficult month for us last year, but this time it was just perfect. Five out of five in the league, and our first ever meeting with an elite division team (they are bottom of the league, but still) ended with a huge success! Ingi Dam scored a hat-trick, and Heinesen made his first assist for our team just after half-time. Next opponents were even stronger, currently 6th in Superliga, and we scored immediately to take the lead. Unfortunately, they soon equalized from a free kick, and our goalkeeper’s bad pass became decisive here, but we really played well against these giants.

And instead of trying to avoid the relegation we are leading the table now! Everything may change for sure, and I don’t see us winning third straight promotion to be honest, but who knows. Dam leads the scoring chart with 9 goals in the league (13 overall).

Winter 2023/24

We signed two players for the senior squad – goalkeeper Peter Bergmann from 5th tier team Vejgaard (needed a backup as Lindholm left the team) and experienced central midfielder/defender Heðin Hansen with 5 caps for the national team (6+5 for B68 in Faroese 2nd tier last season).

Actually Hansen was our second choice for midfield, the first one was Heini Sørensen, released from Midtjylland. But somehow he preferred an amateur contract with a team currently sitting 8th in a division below ours! Their reputation is still slightly better, but really... should that be the only factor affecting the player's decision? :mad:

Five games without winning, and our advantage almost disappeared. Luckily, all other teams in the top group take points from each other so our gap from third place remains quite solid, but AB almost caught us before the game where we finally could end this poor run. Should have won it more confidently though, but our attacking players couldn’t hit an open net sometimes!

Hopefully we’ll find the goalscoring form in May and will be able to stay in the top two.

Ingi Dam finally ended his drought to save us against Skive when we were 0-2 behind at half-time. The next game was very boring until 94th minute, when veteran Jacobsen scored a long shot… but Hvidovre equalized from kick-off immediately, and still we could get a win – Roason hit the post on the last second :( 

The first big win since September allowed us to keep a reasonable gap before three final games, all against teams from 2nd to 4th. Basically three draws would have been enough to win promotion, and a trip to Næstved was close to end 0-0 when Dam won the race for a long ball against goalkeeper and scored into the empty net! So with five points advantage above third place our promotion could be secured against AB. And we did it with the only goal from Mohr who joined us before this season!

lKElUiP.png

Another great season for Ingi Dam, who won the best goalscorer and best player awards! Also he was selected into the team of the year along with goalkeeper Mørk and center-back Henriksen.

Squad stats

QTILVys.png

Finances became a big concern after turning semi-pro, and I hope we’ll find some income sources in the second tier. Moving to the larger stadium (which we will share with another Nordicbet team Fremad Amager) isn’t going to help us, I hardly can imagine our games having attendances higher than we could get at Kløvermarken (this season we had 367 average attendance from 1700 possible).

Danielsen played only a few games last season and remained in the club as chief scout, Jakobsen was a more useful rotation player, but the most valuable departure was left-back HeinesenRanders didn’t want to extend his loan.

Speaking of arrivals… there was no one to improve our first eleven (could sign a striker slightly better than Dam, but he chose Aarhus from a division below), we only signed three players for the bench – left-back Jakup Vanthamar Olsen, winger Ari Olsen and striker Oli Poulsen.

nKXc5K6.png

We are obviously predicted last, and with our squad being even weaker than in previous season that’s going to be really hard (yes, I said it last year too but here we’ll have much stronger opponents, eight of them are fully professional).

Also we have an U19 team now, but it’s only for playing in a junior league, still no recruitment.

We signed the first player directly from Faroese club – central midfielder Margeir Høj, and I really like his mental attributes!

Lk8NhYe.png

The opening game against Horsens ended with a narrow loss, but wasn’t really one-sided and this was an encouraging sign. Next game was our first on the new home stadium against the league favourites, and there we made a massive upset! Lyngby obviously had more chances, but thanks to Mørk’s confident performance we kept our goal safe, and then a substitute midfielder Jakup Helt (he spent last season on loan which really helped him) scored with our first shot on target! And it seems that I underestimated the effect from stadium move, we already set records in attendance and gate receipts. The cup started with a confident win, and the next opposition will be the 5th tier amateurs so we must advance further.

Still early to predict anything, but we certainly can survive here.

Two 89th minute winning goals, both scored by left wingers, were extremely important as we played against the teams which are going to be our rivals in this survival battle. We easily defeated amateurs in the cup, were drawn against a Superliga side Vejle and lost with a reasonable quality of play. In the final September game we had a trip to leading Esbjerg and I didn’t expect anything good, especially as several first team players weren’t fully fit. The first half wasn’t any surprise, we conceded from a penalty and that wasn’t the worst outcome we could have, but everything changed after half-time. Mohr and Dam, our two attacking leaders who had an unimpressive start of the season, equalized twice and then Dam scored the winning goal from a free kick (again on 89th minute)!

MZEbFpM.png

This unexpected win allowed us to enter the top six for now. We are highly overperforming though, the xG table puts us to 11th place but Mørk (currently the league’s best player in average rating!) let us fly much higher.

After six defeats in a row with only one goal scored we finally snapped this run. Simonsen opened the scoring with a header and then added two assists from corners (which didn’t work for us either for a long time). At least we are going to the winter break outside the relegation zone, hopefully will be able to find some reinforcements from the islands in winter or it’s going to be very tough to survive.

Winter 2024/25

We found some new players for the first team, they won't take us to a completely new level but so far it isn’t needed, just have to keep the team in this league.

Magnus Heinason – with all respect to Ingi Dam who led us to three straight promotion, Magnus will be our first choice at front now. Scored 9 goals in second Faroese division last season.

Aron Skipanes – young central midfielder, quite a risky transfer in terms of wage but I liked the attributes that were visible.

Eetu Kosonen – Finnish/Faroese center-back, played for Vikingur and both U21 national teams before. Going to be a backup so far.

Poul Jacobsen – a deadline loan signing from København, unfortunately other teams with young islanders didn’t want to send them here.

Also we sold the first player for money, Toki Thorsteinsson went to Lyngby for 1100 euros. I don’t see him being as good as he was assessed.

Again no reinforcements for the first team, though we managed to extend Poul Jacobsen’s loan for one more season and signed a new backup goalkeeper Marius Kruse. Could also sign left-back Aksel Heinesen who was on loan here two seasons ago and already had 2 caps for the national team, but he chose another club from our division.

I didn’t offer a new contract to our starting left-back Gregersen, he had a long-term injury while earning 140 p/w and other options are not much worse. Our previous backup goalie Bergmann and left winger Ari Olsen moved back to the islands.

After a tough and very important win over Middelfart (a boring game decided by an unexpected forward run from our defensive midfielder) we faced the defending cup holders Midtjylland. And thanks to an exceptional performance from Vitalis Mørk (12 saves including a penalty and 9.6 rating), lots of luck (they hit woodwork three times) and a confident finish for our only promising attack we knocked them out! Of course, it was hard to have that kind of luck for two rounds in a row, and despite a decent quality of play against Silkeborg we lost, setting our best cup result anyway.

Helsingør’s advantage disappeared and now we are leading the table, but three other teams are only within a point behind and even a top six place isn’t secured yet.

Four points from trips to Roskilde and Helsingør let us finish the year on top, though the race is still very tight and actually any of the teams in top eight can seriously think about promotion now.

And that’s our first ever senior international call! Stopping Midtjylland in the cup was surely noticed by Håkan Ericson who is still in charge of national team. Though I doubt that Bjarti would actually play for the Faroes, still it’s a landmark for our club.

Winter 2025/26

We were overspending after extending some first team contracts so actually couldn’t offer any wages to the free agents, but still found some new players.

Kaj Leo I Bartalsstovu – a veteran winger with 28 caps for the national team, still having great technical ability for our level.

Alex Mellemgaard – another veteran who will slightly improve a left-back position.

Simon Holten, Jonas Mouritsen and Bogi Joensen – youngsters with good potential.

Pol Vang – another loan from Scotland, and again unlikely to become a first team player.

 

To fit into the wage budget I loaned out Isak Simonsen until the end of his contract. Still a useful squad member, but getting older and was the easiest to replace.

Thanks, yes he's surely a key player now. though won't be for many years (already 34 :( ). Meihard Olsen and Baldvinsson actually were available in the last transfer window, but we are still semi-pro, low on finances and reputation, so have no chance to sign if there is a bid from Faroe top division or better Danish teams.

After two more wins we started the promotion stage with 12 points advantage over third place! Unfortunately then our form wasn’t so impressive, we lost to Roskilde after conceding three goals in six minutes, scored a late winner in a hard game against B93 and couldn’t break through Helsingør defense, but at least that was enough to keep the gap quite big.

Nine points with seven games to go, including a trip to Helsingør and meeting Middelfart twice. Avoiding defeats there should actually be enough for promotion.

Defeat in the first game let Roskilde move to the top spot, but we regained it in the next match and then increased the lead with a late free kick winner from Danielsen! Also after this win we needed the only point to secure promotion, but actually got all twelve. The decisive goal was scored by Bartalsstovu, which is totally deserved – he is our best player after arrival in winter. Hopefully our second try to survive in the NordicBet League will be more successful.

Poul Jacobsen became the league’s best player, I hope we’ll be able to keep him for one more season. Bartalsstovu and Mohr were excellent on the wings, Mørk, Danielsen and Hansen were also selected into team of the season.

We couldn’t extend Poul Jacobsen’s loan, but managed to sign several players for the first team.

Hannes Agnarsson – after three and a half seasons in Brabrand he’s back and still remains one of the key players!  

Hilmar Leon Jakobsen – our new first choice at front with a bit of international experience and decent stats in Faroese top division (had 7+ average rating in four straight seasons).

Arni Olsen – not a great player, but will be our starting left-back (really the weakest position in first 11).

Patrick Johannesen – will cover both winger positions for free.

Our form in August was quite impressive, we are going in the top half and that’s not an overperformance that was at some point two years ago. All the wins were fully deserved, so survival should be possible this season. Unfortunately, Agnarsson’s return is spoiled by injuries so far, the latest one will keep him out for a month.
