Great so I'm looking for a visually evident Welsh guy possibly standing beside a regular clothed/haired visually evident British guy, in an Irish pub where they're playing Cardiff v Palace. Easy. To make the trio, I'll be the Irish guy with the Guinness.

Hi again,

Numbers depend on where we play. I think if we are talking about coming to Gothenburg then there is only 1 or 2 that could definately be counted on. I haven't included myself in that total as I am generaly too old and knackered. If we were playing in Trolly then I am certain that we could add a couple more. Its really all a question of momentum, If we can get a core group of 6 to 8 playing regularly then more people will come and it snowballs from there. The real problem is getting a core of a squad that you can count on to turn up, most people cant make that level of commitment to play in a league (even 7 a side during the summer)

Lets keep the thread open and see if we can get a few more interested...

Welcome to Sweden by the way

Cheers

Every pair of legs count Steve. This thread seems like it could be building a bit of momentum. Over the next week I'll see if I can gather a few more people from a few more areas and we might have ourselves a team. Albeit a little fragmented, but to begin with, if we can at least have a pool of people who all put themselves forward we can at least start with a weekly game. Maybe even the odd game up in Trolly (or more than odd depending on transport situation).
And thanks for the welcome.

We haven't quite got the numbers just yet Smoggie but almost. Just a few more and we're there. I'll starting rounding everybody up as soon as it is possible.

A quick rehash for anybody new reading this forum. If anybody is interested in playing football, indoor, outdoor, regular, irregular - whatever - if you are interested reply to this forum and we'll keep you in mind for any matches we may organise in future.

Cheers,

James

Hola,
just moved to Gothenburg as my girlfriend is a new student in town. Needed a change as well so I came along. If you don`t mind a Norwegian guy (29 years old, retired as a footballer age 20).. I would love to meet up! I don`t want reveal the team in England I support as I reckon it would have an negative impact on my proposal.

Hi everyone,
I did some research and we can hire a sports hall from Göteborg Stad. There are loads of them around the place - usually in schools. We would just need to bring our own balls and people.
I can't seem to find an indoor league - but I just think its not the right season.

So if we fix a date, with a bit of notice maybe this could happen. We need 11 People for a five-a-side (I'll need a sub). Maybe at 12.00 on the 3rd March? followed by catching the afternoon matches in a pub?

Sounds good to me!

I'm not quite there in Sweden just yet but plan to be in the Gothenburg area hopefully by summer and would be interested in joining in for a run about.
That doesn't add to your numbers immediately but it would be nice to establish some sort of contact with people before I get there, ya know, networking and all that.
I play a couple of times a week here in UK.
