Veikkausliiga week 33 - farewell 2014

Due to a busy weekend at work, I've not got a lot of time - I'll do a full season review blog after next weekend's Cup Final.

Saturday saw SJK confirm their silver medal in their debut season, while Lahti finished a very good third and VPS ended in fourth - which will put them into the Europa League, if HJK complete the double against Inter on the first.


IFK Mariehamn - TPS 3-1
SJK - MYPA 3-1
FC Inter - FF Jaro 0-1
KuPS - VPS 0-1
FC Lahti - FC Honka 2-0

Highlights of Saturday's games


HJK - RoPS 0-3

Veikkausliiga week 32 - Au revoir TPS

They made it to the penultimate weekend, but ultimately drop. TPS had prepared for a season of struggle by cutting their financial cloth accordingly, releasing/selling several first team players while blooding youngsters and (cheaper) alternatives.

Their closest rivals Honka, who were in money problems of a different kind, managed to claim a point at home to KuPS which condemned the Turku club to relegation. They drop to the Ykkönen in 2015, where they will be joined by EIF and PS Kemi, who won their promotion play-offs from Kakkonen.

The weekend's top division games were spread over Saturday and Sunday.


RoPS - SJK 1-2
FF Jaro - IFK Mariehamn 1-0
FC Honka - KuPS 2-2
TPS - FC Lahti 0-1


MYPA - FC Inter 2-2
VPS - HJK 1-1
