As an experiment, we at Karfan.is are putting out english spoken podcasts regularly about the Domino’s men’s and women’s leagues. Ideas and improvements to this show are welcomed and we ask that you send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In our ninth podcast about the Men’s Premier League 2018-2019, sponsored by Domino’s Pizza, David, Axel and Helgi discuss the end of the regular season and some surprising and important games in the last rounds. We discuss specific teams and some coaches leaving their jobs as well as a few possible player movements.
The playoffs are starting and the first round is set. The top seeded Stjarnan team will go against the 8th seeded Grindavík team and we don’t think Stjarnan will have any trouble sweeping them. The 2nd seeded Njarðvík will meet the 7th seed, ÍR, in a series which will in our opinion be decided by who controls the game (and wins Game 1). Tindastóll, the 3rd seed, has the home court advantage against the 6th seeded Þór Þorlákshöfn which could very well be decided by what team wins the first away game. The most exciting series is usually the 4th and 5th seed and it is between two dynasties; Keflavík and KR. Will KR get to the Finals again or be snuffed our immediately by Keflavík? Finally, we thank each other for a fun regular season and hope for an exciting playoffs! Enjoy.
Hosts: Helgi Hrafn Ólafsson, David Patchell and Axel Örn Sæmundsson
