It would be a great victory for Finnish football if can keep HIFK out of Veikkausliiga. They offered nothing on pitch last season and it was great to see them relegate.
Especially their fans group "Stadin Kingit" is problematic and kind of shameful for Finnish football. It is good to organize activity for mentally handicapped people but it is irresponsive for them to travel without supervision allowing them to cause danger to passers-by or themselves.
On their last visit to Jyväskylä their idiot fans felt brave enough to rob beer from shop. It was 15 HIFK fans vs 1-2 salesgirls so it was a honorable and even match. Salesgirls were being outplayed until that but the HIFK idiots became afraid when a customer stepped in and carried the beer back to shop. HIFK fans HAD to resort to violence to reclaim the beer. After this guards were alerted and HIFK fans ran to their bus. Bus driver was chosen man of the match later that day after he drove through a red light and guards (on foot) had to give up their chase. Fan bus returned victoriously to Helsinki with 3 points and free beers.
Official reaction from HIFK chairman to their fans actions was shameful (once again). They rely on the idiots too much financially to say a negative word of them let alone ban them. Honestly I think it was one of the most shameful things ever connected to Finnish football. Previously HIFK fans have put to hospital some stewards or other volunteers working in football match. Most of them admire Nazis but it is kind of strange because if Nazis rose to power most of HIFK fans would be put out of their misery on basis of maintaining the genetic purity.
For this reason I think it has become a joke club and even the players feel shame and is hard to play.
HIFK best player Nando is injured. For KPV start Reza Chaab (he didn't have many starts but scored on his first one so far) so it is best possible lineup. I expect him to play at least Veikkausliiga next season, if KPV don't promote then he has to transfer to other Veikkausliiga club or Sweden. I think for everyone who likes Finnish football KPV would be welcome team to highest level.
