Seems he ditched Kemi and their one month probation for a full season at fellow Veikkausliga Club Vaasan Palloseura these last few days!

Pretty smart that, as a young lad I would have jumped at the chance but horses for courses and all that.

Nice looking stadium from the modern world. Still never mind, we've got Brexit. Back to the 50's.

Seems a well trodden path now, a lot of players that fall out of the league over here are now going over to Scandinavia to try and gain a career over that instead.

I'm sure a couple of players that are at Ostersunds were released by York City, absolute dreamland when they got Arsenal in the Europa.

Looking at their team, Brian Wake was there at the end of his career, got 24 goals in 20 games.

So his Scandinavian dream is over......always thought he got disillusioned as he couldn't dislodge Miller T at the time....then we all know what happened....hope he can get back into the game

I didnt think there was much in it between him and Miller but the manager kept talking him down saying he was a project. Shame as i thought he would have made a good player for us. He certainly had more pace than anyone else on the team.

Basically he was just a young w anker who needed a kick up the arse.

We have all been there so I just hope that he has learned, CMW never did.

If he gets a deal at Lincoln it represents a decent move surely, looked like his career could have been ruined after he pissed us about but could get to sign for one of the promotion favourites

Please just type Scandinavian countries into google and look were it states that Finland is one of them it's not quite as simple as it is or it isn't it's actually a very open debate to whether or not it's Scandinavian , It's also part of the Nordic passport agreement.

Looks like you’re not only bad at geography but also at using google.

Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom but doesn’t mean it’s part of Great Britain

Finland isn’t part of Scandinavia in terms of geography or culture

Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to educate themselves

From Wiki:

The term Scandinavia in local usage covers the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. However, in English usage, the term also sometimes refers to the Scandinavian Peninsula, or to the broader region including Finland and Iceland, which is always known locally as the Nordic countries.

Silentstan notice how I said it was a debated subject? It's about a 50/50 split in Finland whether or not it is. That's why I said it was not a as clear to say that its not or it is, As the defintion of Scandinavian is actually surprisingly broad, The are even calls for the likes of Greenland to be classed as Scandinavian.

As you referred to Geography SilentStan.

From Wiki:

The Scandinavian Peninsula is a peninsula of Eurasia located in Northern Europe, which generally comprises the mainland of Sweden, the mainland of Norway (with the exception of a small coastal area bordering Russia), the northwestern area of Finland, as well as a narrow area in the west of the Pechengsky District of Russia.

Well, to be honest, he called me bad at Geography and used the Uk and Northern Ireland as an example which is more of the political situation than a geographical one, As it should have been England, Scotland and Wales are part of Britain but Northern Ireland and the Republic Ireland are part of the British Isles. Similar the UK is leaving the EU but were not leaving Europe unless that have some plan to shift the continental plates.

It’s only sometimes classed as Scandinavia in English because we’ve gotten it wrong so many times and people don’t know better. Just like people now use literally all the time when they actually mean figuratively and then they now have literally in the dictionary as meaning the exact opposite of what is should mean.

No one in Finland would say they are in Scandinavia: if you said that to them they would just laugh at you in your face

PS Kemi, one of the teams McQueen played for out there are in the northwest of Finland, the part considered part of Scandinavia.

The other, VPS, is based in a region with a Swedish speaking majority, so would more than likely culturally identify themselves as Scandinavian.

I have always thought Finland part of Scandanavia pretty sure taught it at school too however if it isn't I don't think it classes me an idiot as I'm sure the vast majority of folk would think it was Scandinavian

These waters are far too muddy for my liking, seems it is down to people perceptions.

I had a southern mate who came up and we went to The White Quay for food and he never stopped arguing for years that no way you can say that it is called The White Y :D

Looks like he’s finally settled down in East London! Shame he was so badly advised as there’s a useful utility player in there, he’d have been a great bench option for us these days...

Is Alex the finished article? No. Is he a project with a lot of potential? Yes. Listen, I like a challenge and I’m glad he’s in the building.

Ditto the sentiment about squad player. Ideal in that wing back role too.
