- Many young players with potential to progress
wSoccerNews teamed up with Martin Sjögren, the former coach of LdB Malmö, to analyze the teams of the Damallsvenskan for the season. Below you can find what Martin had to say about Umeå.

Strengths: The team consists of many younger players that have a potential to progress and make the team improve quite a bit throughout the season. There will be a big responsibility laying on the more experienced players like Berglund and Chikwelu in creating a stability in the team and having patience with the fluctuating performances of the youngsters.

Weaknesses: The squad looks quite a bit weaker that last year. With the losses of Bachmann and Jakobsson there are many doubts of who will be the offensive threat for the opponents.

Key Players: Emma Berglund, Rita Chikwelu and Emmelie Konradsson

Who will be fun to watch and why: Lina Hurtig is one of the most talented young players in Sweden, and hopefully she can become a starting player for UIK during 2012. It will be interesting to follow this young players progress this season.

Potential starting line-up in the beginning of the season: 4-3-3 Caroline Jönsson - Tuija Hyyrynen, Emma Berglund, Alexandra Nilsson, Elin Landström - Rita Chikwelu, Lina Hurtig, Emmelie Konradsson - Linda Molin, Jenny Hjolman, Ogonna Chukwudi
