Any idea where to get Rosenberg's live match this afternoon?

So can't wait even though it's a bit of travelling all booked now. Overnight in Oslo airport but think I'll just hand at the airport rather than get a hotel. Doing the train overnight after the game to get back to Oslo for the flight home the next day. The count down is on

Comfortable win for Rosenberg in the league. A good side with dangerous aerial threat. Strong at the back. Hard to tell as the other group weren't that great. On that game, I would think that BATE last year were a lot more dangerous. And were not so hot this year. Home game is going to be crucial. Going to be very difficult to keep a clean sheet

A clean sheet at home is essential if we are to have any hope of going over there with any intention of causing an upset, a goal would be great but a 0-0 home draw will not be the worst result, I still give us no more than 1 in 3 of chance of progressing though.

I''m sure Kenny will have them revved up for the tie, this really is our cup final, so much depends on it, what a scalp it would be to knock them out, then having two more ties to look forward to it. However they will be strong favourites to advance. Then again we would have been underdogs in every single euro match last year apart from FH at home!

If they smack three into the top corners then no complaints.

brisk enough ticket sales there this morning. Why does your allocated seat not guarantee you your seat for this, when it did last season?
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

I see Coleraine sold out a club charter to Norway for their match.
It included return flights,transfers,hotel & match ticket all for £285. Some offer in fairness.
I wonder if we are thinking of anything similar?

I hope this seasons charters wont face the delays from Iceland and Tel Aviv. Especially Tel Aviv when fans on scheduled airlines boarded the same time as the charter flight the day after the game when supposed to be home after the match, and no fuel stops either - that was just mad in the end.

So, just watched Rosenborg first half versus Kristiansund BK. 2-0 up and coasting. Both goals coming from crosses from their left (our right) Sean Gannon side. They have a playmaker in the middle Fredrik Modstjoe. A small in stature but terrier like nature. As a team they are super composed on the ball tonight,playing on a plastic surface identical to Dundalk's. Its going to be a tough long night if we concede early.

As an aside, the keeper for the other team is Sean McDermott!?!?! Fair play to him plying his trade in a different professional league.

Also as an aside, their supporters on Twitter are delighted Bendtner did not start as they seem to think he is of no use either
