Stockholm isn't mainly soccer, it's mainly not sports at all. And by that I don't mean in terms of interest or fan support. The city sees the clubs as something to cash in on. There is no tax money going into, or benefitting our clubs as you will see in pretty much all the rest of the country. I can't for the life of me understand why because it's slowly killing our teams when clubs around the country get new arenas built at generous costs and low rent while we sit in ancient stadiums with costs that strangle the clubs.

For example, a few years ago DIF paid as much rent for one match at the old olympic stadium from 1912 as Halmstad paidfor their stadium for a whole year... Seems fair huh?

But enough whining, I'm still looking forward to the new season and will continue to do so until the fat lady sings, when that happens...jihad on the city council.
