These come from a trip i took to the beautiful city of Tallinn, Estonia last summer to watch the club I support, Bohemians, take on Levadia Tallinn in the UEFA Cup.

We also caught the Champions League game between Flora Tallinn and NK Gorica the night before - so I got to see two stadiums!

Flora Tallinn vs. NK Gorica - Champions League - played in Estonia's National Stadium, the Lillekula (note the strange roof architecture behind the one goal - very modern!)

Levadia Tallinn vs. Bohemians (Dublin) - UEFA Cup

Not so many spectators though
Le Coq Arena is very nice, but the real big problems seems to be the spectators... almost no-one there, and it was a Champions League match! And it seems there were more Slovenians than Estonians (and quite happy, since they easily won 2-4)... It's really sad to see those empty stadiums, it was the same last august when I attended a match a Skonto Stadion in Riga, and it was a "derby" match, with around 100 spectators inside a nice stadium with a capacity of 9000 or more spectators. I don't know if they full them just for the National team, I hope so, otherwise it seems to be of no use to build nice new stadiums in the Baltic... :(
I like this stadium a lot!!! The elevated roof design is a smart way to make a small stadium look bigger. It´s also nice that the roof is transparent. It´s a little like the roof of the San Siro stadium in Milan. And it´s also nice to see the oversized commercial signs in the corners. It´s a smart way to close the stadium space for a smaller stadium, thus those spectator seats can be reallocated to the sides.
To be frank... I never been to look at football match. Have been inside Skonto hall only for a concert (last time - Massive attack). I feel that this is the attitude of most people here.
I don't get those heated discussions around different football clubs, sitting at TV's and watching football matches etc. Ice hockey is a bit better - there they move fast enough to make things interesting. But it is not terribly interesting anyway.
really small but nice weather

Massive attack
Oh, love Massive Attack! It's quite incredible that I don't have any of their records yet. But everytime I'm at a friend of mine's apartment, we simply MUST play some Massive Attack, over and over:)
I got all Massive Attack albums in MP3's(good quality), pm if you happen to be desperate to listen some... ;) I also have all Portishead(another legendary trip-hop band) and some of Sneaker Pimps.
trip-hop is my style as well :) Have hundreds of mp3's
Yeah, trip hop, Dj Shadow is my favourite
Less than 40 people on main sector in qulfication for CL, it is impossible ! ! ! I have never seen so empty stadium during the match
/\ no one gives a crap for Club matches... its all national here... We had full house + extra seats added for Estonia - Portugal game 2 days ago... :)
