Struggled badly all throughout 2019 only to barely survive relegation via the play-offs. All campaign blunt forward actions and major lack of goals were serious issues. The main change in off season was the appointment of new manager. Nanne Bergstrand is actually legend in Kalmar, he was in charge during the only title-winning campaign in the club’s history in 2012. The new boss immediately cleared the squad with 16 players leaving in the off season. Amongst them the 2 starting, but underperforming heavily in 2019, full-backs + retired veteran Rasmus Elm. Only 3 new players were signed to replace them, but the depth of the squad remains decent as prior this clean up the squad list was clogged up with way too many names. Kalmar seem likely to play with 2 up front under their new manager, but both Froling and Herrem need to be doing much better compared to last season. Bergstrand favours 3-5-2 shape, but he also uses 4-4-2, so he has flexibility to decide on his formation based on the opponents. Being effective down both flanks expected to be amongst the main strengths of the team, with the manager focusing on using as much as he could the wide players. He has depth and rotation options in those positions too. In order for the results to be better at least 4-5 of those regulars that underperformed badly in 2019 will need to do a lot more. Yet to be seen if simply giving them new manager will be enough.

Target


Improved table positon and possible top 10 finish in 2020 will be seen as move in the right direction. Have the squad to be aiming at comfortable mid-table existence.

Season Review
2019

№14: Kalmar

Kalmar had very difficult season, which nearly saw the team relegated, but in the end dramatic survival was achieved in the play-off vs. Brage after 4:2 aggregate win. The Reds played those 2 play-off games and the decisive final round without permanent manager after Magnus Pehrsson abandoned the team right at the most important part of the season. The first 8 rounds were pretty decent with just 1 defeat suffered in those games (W2 D5). However, from early on it was clear that scoring goals would be problem for Kalmar and this brought 11-game winless run between rounds 9 and 19 (D4 L7). Despite so many flat and uninspiring displays the Board remained behind coach Pehrsson and even gave him substantial funds to strengthen the squad in the summer. However, none of the 4 new players he signed proved a hit in the second half of the season and Kalmar remained in or just above the bottom 3 pretty much all the way from July onwards. Still it looked as if survival will be achieved with just 1 point needed from final 2 games, but when 2:3 home loss was suffered vs. Falkenberg in round 29 coach Pehrsson repaid the trust in him by resigning ahead of the decisive season finale. This brought 0:3 loss vs. Sirius in the last round and Kalmar collapsed in the bottom 3 as result. Still character was shown in the play-offs. Not many players performed at high level throughout this dreadful campaign, but captain Viktor Elm was an exclusion. Not only he was able to at least make the defence solid, but with 3 goals at the other end he was actually the team’s third top scorer in 2019 too. Kalmar first need to find new manager now and then they need to reshape their squad according to his likings this winter. The fans won’t be too bothered if 90% of the players are dropped.
