This is yet another season where PS Kemi is the relegation candidate number 1. They have a low player budget, they constantly keep getting new players to build a team. They lack long term plans and they have to rely on the “foreign player lottery” to see if they can survive the season. In the previous two seasons, they have found some good players who they have then sold in August. First it was Billy Ions who they sold to SJK and then it was Filip Valencic who moved to HJK last season. Now it looks more difficult as they have had a poor pre-season. Their head coach Åhman looks to be searching for another miracle.
