    Thinking about the fact of Norway ladies winning their WWC qualies group and the Algarve Cup, without Ada: what could lie ahead for them, with Ada? We may or may not find out. They have developed nicely since Euros as a cohesive unit and really would be contenders with Ada in France (now I consider them a darkhorse/dangerous floater). I know this has been talked about before but it is something to bring up again because they have had some nice successes, without Ada, since last talked about. Just pondering.......:cautious::unsure:

    It can get quite cold in Oslo in October let alone November and it's hard to play finesse when it's low digits and windy, even without rain or snow. If that's how the league is to be decided so be it but those can be difficult conditions and is not the way the majority of the season will be played.

    In an 8 team league you play 21 games and everyone three times. You don't get the fourth against teams (which may be a good thing as much as bad) and you also don't need a protractor for the playoffs. The silly season may get moved to the Fall.

    The Nike release probably scans better, as it looks like the NFF just ran that through google translate. The resulting Norwegian is atrocious, and translating it back too English looks a bit weird too. :p

    Footnote to the pre-season results above: Every time you see a G and a number (G16), it means a boys team and their age.

    It's quite interesting that some of these boys' team have lost to Toppserien's teams, sometimes even by large margins.

    By reading what people use to write on other threads, you would come to believe that no women's team can ever beat any boys' team, but for some sort of miracle, no matter the age! :coffee:

    It is puberty, before it boys teams are crushed by good women's team after it it is the other way around.
    And it takes a few years for them to get trough it with all or most of the teams players.

    Odds from Nordicbet on winners of Toppserien 2019:

    LSK Kvinner .......... 1.33
    Sandviken ............. 4.75
    Vålerenga ............ 10.00
    Avaldsnes ............ 15.00
    Klepp ................... 17.00
    Arna Bjørnar ......... 40.00
    Røa ..................... 50.00
    Stabæk ............... 50.00
    Kolbotn ................ 75.00
    Trondheims-Ørn ... 100.00
    Lyn ....................... 200.00
    Fart ...................... 350.00

    The bottom two teams will be relegated directly and the 10th place team will be in play-off due to the new league system in 2020 cutting the number of teams from 12 to 10. I'm pretty sure Fart will go down as quickly as they came up. Who is going to follow them? It could well be Stabæk or T-Ørn. Lyn have looked good in friendlies, and I think they have a chance to stay up. I think Kolbotn are vastly underrated on Nordicbet. They should be on the upper half of the table. LSK will win again, but not sure whether Sandviken, Klepp or Vålerenga will be the main threat.

    So... all you Toppserien junkies out there, what are your predictions for 2019? Here is mine:

    Top 3:
    1 - LSK Kvinner
    2 - Vålerenga
    3 - Sandviken

    Bottom 3 (play-off and two relegation spots):
    10 - Lyn
    11 - Trondheims-Ørn
    12 - Fart

    here's Kvinner's streamed game vs Barca later on today

    Live stream: FC Barcelona v LSK Kvinner | UEFA Women's Champions League Quarter-final (1st Leg) - Womens Soccer United



    only in Norway would a team be called Fart? lol
    off thread, but got to ask; F. Rolfo had a phenomenal game with Bayern Munich this last Sunday. Why isn't she a regular on Sweden's NT? I mean she didn't make the Algarve Cup, her playing time was a bit low for the 8 WC qualifier games(290 min.) & just 29 min. in for friendlies for 2018, zero this year. Could be injury related , but she seemed to have pretty steady playing time for BM through out this time period

    It would work in Sweden to, I don't think we have any soccer teams named speed ('fart' in Swedish and Norwegian) but it would make a good namne.

    She is a regular, but not always a starter. She missed Algarve Cup due to injury (knee) but have been selected for the training games against Germany and Austria in the build-up to WWC and are expected to be part of the WWC-team.
    https://www.dn.se/sport/fotboll/rolfo-tillbaka-i-landslaget/ (in Swedish)

    Injury may sound a bit worse than it was, she missed Algarve due to problems with her knee/s. Which often but not necessarily means injury.
