    Sure, but she just signed on for KIF Örebro (the outfit formerly known as Karlslunds IF) :) in the damallsvenska.

    I think Tony DiChico, the former US '99 coach will be the best candidate for that.

    I don't think you'll see Solveig and Pia Sundhage together. Solveig will be pulling for her husband, (Pia's former assistant), to get a shot. If not, she'll be a miserable person and take it out on whoever the new coach is.

    Why not one of their former players?

    Does Riise have any coaching experience?

    Or would she turn into a Heinrichs? ;)

    Riise has coaching ambitions - she's been in the norwegian FA's training programme (I don't know if she's graduated or still in the programme) and is assistant coach with her club Team Strømmen. I think most people would agree she still has a bit to go before anyone seriously consider her for a national team job.

    Is Anita Rapp still playing? It seems like some players have disappeared since the World Cup 03.

    It seems that Ola By Rise (former Rosenborg coach) and Eli Landsem (currently in Fortuna Hjørring) are the most likely candidates to take over the Norwegian WNT. If Eli Landsem get the job, it will be the first time Norway has a female coach on the WNT.

    According to the Oslo Daily newspaper Aftenposten, By Rise was offered the Norwegian WNT head coaching job, but turned it down.

    I have heard nothing but good things about Eli Landsem from players who played for her at Asker and really hope that she ends up as Norway's next WNT head coach. If Landsem does get the job, I wouldn't be surprised at all if one of her former players, Hege Riise, eventually ends up as one of her assistants. :cool:

    Norwegian newspapers today write that Even Pellerud, currently coaching the Canadian WNT, has been contacted by the Norwegian FA to take over the job. So it seems that he is the first choice of the Norwegian FA.

    Links to Pellerud Articles?

    I have done several google searches, but have so far not come up any with articles that discuss the NFF contacting Pellerud about the Norwegian WNT head coaching job. Which Norwegian newspapers wrote about this? Also, if you have any links to these articles could you please post them. "Tusen takk!"

    "Tusen takk!" Dandal. "Det var snilt av deg." :) I have to remember to check that "kvinnefotball" site on a more regular basis.

    Just out of curiosity, is there a special "norsk" version of google that is more effective to use when searching for Norwegian newspaper articles?

    På forhånd takk!

    Re: SV: Links to Pellerud Articles

    Well, there is of course a http://www.google.no - just to see what happened I searched for "pellerud kvinnelandslaget" and got 251 hits, at least the first 15 about the recent events.

    I usually use http://fotball.adressa.no to keep in touch with the norwegian game - since both the men's top side Rosenborg and the women's Trondheims-Ørn are local clubs.

    "Tusen takk igjen" :) I'm guessing that you have to use this http://www.google.no address if you are going to do a search that involves the use of any Norwegian words.

    I worked in Norway for five summers and went to the International Summer School at the University of Oslo, but sadly I am still far from being fluent "på norsk." Perhaps you or one of the other Scandinavian regulars to this forum could post a translation or at least an English summary of one or more of these articles. :kjempekult: :cool:

    Even Pellerud has announced that he want to stay in Canada, and does not want to take over the job with the Norwegian WNT. All this according to Norwegian Broadcasting, NRK.no.

    As for sources of information about norwegian women's soccer, 100% Fotball is probably one of the best. But I can also mention that I have set up a little weblog myself and have been "blogging" norwegian women's football news for the last 2-3 weeks. It's address is:

    "Tusen takk" for the update about Pellerud. Also "tusen takk" for these links. I'll have to start taking a look at these on a regular basis.

    Bente Nordby must be really disappointed that Pellerud is staying in Canada. Do you know anything about her status with Kolbotn and what the chances are that she will stay with the National Team through the European Championships?

    Hilsen!

    Bente Nordby

    Bente Nordby is considering whether she should stay in Kolbotn or move to Asker for next season. Anyhow, she is continuing to play at the highest level in Norway. If she is going to play at the EC depends on the new coach, I guess. Whoever it is, he/she might feel that is it time for Bente Nordby to retire and hand the WNT goalkeeper position over to yourger talents, such as Ingrid Hjelmseth or Silje Vesterbekkmo.

    Bente Nordby Decides to Sign With Asker

    It looks like I will have look at these sites a little more often than once a week. ;)

    Bente Nordby klar for Asker

    This is a very nice "Romjul" present for me finding out that Bente has decided to continue playing club fotball in the Oslo area. :)

    Hopefully I will get to watch Bente play for Asker several times while I am housesitting in Oslo 4 next May. Maybe I'll get really lucky and be there when Asker has road matches against Røa, Kolbotn, or Team Strømmen. :cool: :kjempekult:

    Didn't Liungen also get promoted up from the first division? If I'm not mistaken they play in the Drammen area only about 20 minutes south of Asker by train, so that could give me one more option for watching a Toppserien match without having to travel far from Oslo. Anyone know when next season's Toppserien schedule will be released? "På forhånd takk!"

    Hilsen!

    Back to the topic of NFF looking for a new coach for the WNT. According to yesterday's edition of the Norwegian newspaper VG, it looks like Bjarne Berntsen has now been offered the job:

    Berntsen tilbudt kvinnelandslaget

    It looks like most of Berntsen's experience has been with the Stavanger men's club Viking. Just out of curiosity, was he coaching there in 1991? (My first European Football match ever was Viking-Brann in May of 91.) :) Also does anyone know if Berntsen has any experience coaching women?

    Another article I found on the SteinL blog says that Hege Riise is concerned about how much time it is taking the NFF to find a new head coach for the WNT.

    Riise bekymret over trenersommel

    If Berntsen turns down this latest offer, I wonder if Eli Landsem will finally be offered the job? I'm sure Hege Riise would be quite satisfied if her former coach at Asker ends up as Norway's new WNT head coach.

    [/QUOTE]

    Can you tell us what she had to say about it? I am assuming she means there is a lack of interest, unless there are internal conflicts.

    Also, Nordby1, what is the deal with the women's league there? I know the crowds are not as big as in Sweden, but do the women get any compensation?

    And what does the national team look like for the Euro 05? They did well against Sweden earlier in the year.
