It is the finest day of the year.
Whatever the weather, it is. Those years it rained in the rain, they when we frozen and broken together or the flags stood on the edge and blown up with the snow. Or the more God-giving when the first gentle winds thawed our winter-frozen cheeks, as we sat up against the sun, which suddenly stood on the blue sky, and beamed on everything still pale in nature.
For those of us who love Allsvenskan in football, the one that has been played since 1924 even though it was called ”Storserien” from the beginning, our teams’ home premieres are always and regardless of the year’s finest day. For half of the teams, it comes in round 2, and even if the premiere round is what it is, it is not really going really well until it is time for the first match – AT HOME. In our city, at our stadium, in our home. When we get to decorate our common residence for the first time for real again.
It is the day of the year when everything, the whole body’s system, feels the most; when the heart is pounding as hardest, yes a day of turning redemption – after the eternal darkness of winter. The day we finally get to sing the songs again, get the rams and the melodies and the drums to bounce in the concrete, feel the smoke from the Bengals, tie the scarf around our neck, waving our flags, make our ring-rusty voices haze – and just get back in again.
I think everyone with a strong love for a specific football team knows this way.
And today it is my team’s turn to roll out the carpet for the first time in the 2019 season.
Fan so beautiful and wonderful it will be.
I realize with all the desired clarity that the Malmö supporters are not with us others in this, but for all the others: more refreshing than that the law (again one must say) that this year would jog the home series without any major competition or resistance has begun with one point in two matches, the allsvensky series can hardly start.
At least it shoots up the jogging trip for a while.
And GIF Sundsvall. What to say. I have a very good friend who is married; he speaks of old habit that now 26 points remain for a new contract. I try to make sure he has to let it go, but there is so deep anxiety and the gods know that I usually also had it in my body. Around my club. So I understand him. And it just can’t pull it out of man.
For this is something else. Something new. There is no chance that Sundsvall will end up in the bottom half with this team. So strong is the squad, so nice is the coach Joel Cedergren, he who performs more than he speaks (just such a thing!) Got to this.
And Linus Hallenius is well Allsvenskan’s most breakthrough strong strike.
