Ye Olde Rumour Mill

Lise Klaveness talks to Norwegian press while in Kolbotn for the UEFA Women's Cup semifinal. She says it's fifty-fifty wether she stays in Umeå another year or not. "You can't get it better as a footballer than in Umeå, but it's about life outside football too", she says and adds that she dreamed about being a professional footballer but it turned out being really boring. She needs something outside the trainings and matches and wants the club to help her get a trainee-ship if she is to stay.
Another thing that could persuade her to stay is Umeå signing her Norwegian best friend, national team defender Ingvild Stensland. Umeå's manager Roland Arnqvist confirms that he has notified Stensland's club Kolbotn that they want to talk to her, but that she is neither more nor less hot than any of the other players on their list.

Umeå defender Sanna Valkonen says she has made up her mind about her future, but will not get into details until after the season has finished. Manager Arnqvist says he thinks he knows what Valkonen has decided, but he has no answer from her yet. He adds that he thinks it's completely natural, and a good thing, that a few players move every year.
The Stockholm club AIK has been named as a possible destination for Valkonen. The club confirms the talks, but will only comment further when and if there is a signed contract.

Finally a non-rumour: Sunnanå's young forward Madeleine Edlund will sign a 1 year contract with Umeå IK later this week. She says she is thrilled to play and train with Umeå's world star squad and even thuogh she knows she will be spending time on the bench, she really wants and looks forward to the challenge to break in to the first team.

Promoted AIK has resigned 11 of the players from the 2006 squad (Jenny Lundqvist, Anna Lundin, Lina Hedkvist, Ingrid Bohlin, Freja Egebrand, Anna Karlsson, Camilla Ulander Nilsson, Nazanin Vaseghpanah, Madelene Göras, Madeleine Wedin and Hanna Jöhnk) and also found a 17 year old midfielder from 2nd division side Brommapojkarna, Danielle Wallander. She has been on Sweden's U17 team, but I really don't think that 17 year-olds is the way to go to prepare for Damallsvenskan. Unless they are Hanna Ljungberg or Marta. She might be one of those.

To continue the youngsters theme, Hammarby made an agreement with two 18 year-olds to trial with the team in December. Michelle Lilja and Lina Frank are playing in 1st division team Gideonsberg and Sweden's U18. Just a trial so far though.

At last it seems like Bälinge will get their 2005 top-scorer Annette Kent back with the team. Kent, who played her college soccer at Perdue University, played an instrumental part in Bälinge's 2005 promotion campaign, tearing up defenses of all 1st division sides and scoring loads of goals during her 6 month stint with the club. It looks like she will return for the 2007 season and it will be interesting to see how it works out for Kent at the top level.
No link. I'm pretty sure on my source here, but this entry might actually be the place where the rumour starts.

Lise Klaveness: I thought I read she was in law school. Also, regarding her boredom--I assume she means she is bored with small town Umea life, outside of soccer-- during the euros, the press said she is married. Is that right?

Klaveness studied law in Oslo, but she is obviously on a break now. I think she had something like 1 year left to complete her master. Apart from being intellectually pretty gifted, she is also a rather active woman. She has been involved in movements like Amnesty International and in animal protection causes, she writes a column in a Norwegian paper... I think that by being bored, she means that she isn't satisfied with shopping and/or Playstation when she has finished her training for the day.

Klaveness is one of my favourite characters in Damallsvenskan and I try to follow her (follow, not stalk), but I have completely missed out on any mentions of a husband or even boy/girlfriend. When she lists family members on her web-site it's just parents and siblings.
