North add Jumpy as Head Coach

North have unveiled Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson as the team's new coach.

The news of the Swede's addition to North immediately follows the dismissal of their previous coach, Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg, who had stood behind the squad for nearly a year.

Jumpy joins the Danish side to bring "new inspiration and a different coaching approach" after spending the last five months as a free agent, having been replaced by Andreas "Samuelsson" Samuelsson in fnatic last September following a three-year tenure with the Swedish squad.

Jumpy replaces mithR in North

Changes in the coaching staff are another step in a change of direction in North, who have been struggling to keep a place in the top 10 consistently for the past two years. In January, they benched Jakob "JUGi" Hansen to make space for the return of Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen.

"Although it has been a tough decision to let mithR go, we concluded, after a thorough analysis of the entire performance setup, that the team needs some new inspiration and different coaching approach to unlock the full potential of the players.

"We held talks with numerous highly qualified coaches, and we are very pleased to get Jumpy onboard as our number one choice. With his prior high-level experience and solid coaching philosophy, we see the signing of Jumpy as another important boost to our development towards the top,” North's performance coach, Christian Engell, said in a statement.

North now have:

Denmark Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye
Denmark Philip "aizy" Aistrup
Denmark Nicklas "gade" Gade
Denmark René "cajunb" Borg
Denmark Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen

Sweden Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson (coach)

swedish and danish are pretty similar and they roughly understand each other. Both swedes and danes use a lot of slang terms in english while playing CS as well, so a lot is the same. Ex. "short", "smoking", "drop AK" etc.
2020-02-11 13:32
It's difficult for danes and swedes to understand each other. My bet is he will be calling in english.
2020-02-11 13:34

i'd say it depends on dialect, we can get a rough idea of someone from copenhagen speaking, but are completely lost when it comes to lolland and further south
2020-02-11 13:38
Yes but a rough idea is not good when you have 1 min to talk with your coach. I'm from copenhagen and if i hear a swede go full swede speaking i catch less than 50%

jumpy is probably from stockholm and doesn't really have a dialect, should be fine, any words that are confusing will likely get ironed out in practice pretty quick
2020-02-11 13:47
Sure, it's easy to learn to understand swedish. 3 months of his none stop nonsens and they be fine.
2020-02-11 13:51
Maybe he should learn Danish instead of the players having to learn Swedish. Since there are 5 Danes and 1 Swede.

They'll learn to understand each other. All of them are experienced enough to have encountered swedes before.

2020-02-11 17:58
Sure not possible coaching that way.
2020-02-11 19:23
did you just offer him some nuggets?
2020-02-11 18:01
Yes noget = nuggets (Y)
2020-02-11 19:13
You're so kind.
2020-02-11 21:14
Vad betyder "stadig" på danska? På svenska betyder det "steady" så jag blev förvirrad av din mening. Annars förstår jag allt.
2020-02-11 19:46
Still, "u still dont understand" There is a few words that is alot different. But often you can make it out.
2020-02-11 20:05
My swedish version of what you typed would be along the lines of: "Har jag inte rätt, eller förstår du fortfarande inte något?"
2020-02-11 21:16
Yes easy understandable. Danish swedish, same same.
2020-02-12 00:55
It really depends on what you grew up with, like if you grew up in the eastern part of Denmark there is a good chance you watched Swedish TV as a kid. Likewise I imagine if you grew up near Denmark in Sweden then you will have watched some Danish TV. Also of course if you traveled or have family Denmark/Sweden you will have learned some there. Personally I grew up near Germany so I learned German as a kid and struggled some with Swedish for a while, but colleagues from Sweden has helped.
2020-02-17 23:39
Yeah, I just think people make out danish/swedish to be equal. It's actually a very big difference in speech (not that much in written) that I find it incomprehensible.
2020-02-18 10:59
Including that some everyday words have completely different meaning, like fx. the word "semester" where the Danish meaning is something like "term" as opposed to Swedish where I think it means holiday.
2020-02-18 15:51
it does indeed some swedes i understand perfectly fine and others just seem like a complete other language
2020-02-11 14:25

Swedish/Danish/Norwegian are so similar that it only takes a week of practice to fully understand the other, and most Scandinavians already understand most of the other two languages.
2020-02-11 16:47
i think most norwegians understand swedes, and many swedes can understand norwegian, a few finns can understand swedes and nobody can understand danes, im not sure they understand each other tbh

2020-02-11 13:29
Danes only understand some Swedish dialect, I can understand I think southern Swedes almost perfectly whereas some others it's impossible to understand even a single word. We have the same or probably worse in Denmark, in Jutland and Bornholm the dialect is nuts, even hard for like Copenhagen people to understand them.
2020-02-11 13:40
Bornholm is a different language (the older generation) but come on, everyone from copenhagen understand people from jutland. The south of jutland and it gets weird, but you still get it :p
