Player interviews, speculations and the last of the preseason stuff

Kopparbergs/Göteborg's new coach Martin Pringle talks to the local paper. Pringle, who has experience as a professional player in Benfica and Charlton, says he wants to use his experience from the leagues he's played in. He wants to play attractive football with the ball played on the ground. "But if you meet a team like Umeå and they pressure you a lot it's easy to chose the long ball. Nobody wants the ball in their own penalty area." His ambiton for the season is a third place, but it will be much closer in the top than last year.

Columnist Ulf Eklund in Själevads local paper writes about the importance of the first game against Mallbacken. Mallbacken is one of the teams they should be able to defeat if they wants to stay in Damallsvenskan. And since they meet better teams in the following matches a long losing streak before the brasilian players arrive in May can be fatal.

Striker Jennie Dahlberg, one of the local girls in Själevad, only scored 3 goals last season. She plans to do more this year and thinks Själevad looks much better this season than the last when they were only one last match goal from being relegated.

Västerbottens Folkblad has made a little poll among the Damallsvenskan coaches. Marta got most votes as best player, but most wanted Victoria Svensson on their team if they could pick anyone they wanted - Victoria is good at more positions.

Tiffeny Milbrett talks about moving from New York Power to Sunnanå in the small town of Skellefteå. It's not that a big step and she's even found a place to get her Vanilla Ice Latte.

Two brasilian stars will play against each other in the season opener between Malmö FF and Umeå. But Marta is in the league's richest and best organised club while Formiga's Malmö has to rely on gifts from supporters even to furnish her apartment.
