2019: Make MSO Strong Again

On new years day MSO was surprisingly very active on incoming transfers.

For the first time in months MSO has brought in players to strengthen the squad. Five players transferred to Odense yesterday and sources let MSO blog know that more can happen in the coming hours.

For a couple of seasons there has been some transfer activities, but the main strategy from MSO was to make a strong homegrown team with talents from MSO U18, also known as Šerif Bošnjak’s School Of Exellence. Yesterday the club surprised the fans as five players made the transfer to Odense. The first transfer happened on New Years eve. It was Swiss goalkeeper Lukas Brocke, whom made the transfer from New Zealand club Mookey in a 7,6 million $ transfer. Brocke, age 20, was yesterday joined by Martín Gamarra from Venezuela. Gamarra transfered from Icelandic third division team 1.FC Basel United for a price of 6,6 million $. because of those transfer former MSO U18 goalkeeper Stokholm has decided to leave the club and stop his professional career.

Former U18 talents Amby and Akselsen has joined the path of Stokholm later yesterday as MSO continued the activity on the transfer market. Romanian Marian Panga joined MSO in a 3,4 million $ transfer from Swiss club Josefine Mutzenbacher and he was joined by the Palestinian defender Khoury Hmoud, whom moved from Perspoolis in Iran for the price of 3 million $.

MSO had these comments to the defensive transfers.

“We said goodbye to 3 beloved talents and 4 incoming transfers has replaced them. We have strengthen our squad significantly by this move and show that we want to be taken seriously again in 2019 after a few seasons being in yet another re-building stage. We want to make MSO strong and use 2019 to make it happen.

We know it wont happen over night and we will still struggle most of the year to get wins against other weak opponents, but the foundation for something better and stronger is being made as of now”.

– Paolo Baggio, MSO Legend

The four transfer was not the end of the heavy activity in Odense. Late last night the club negotiated a 4,1 million $ deal with Israel fourth division club The Stars Of Roi and has signed their Mexican playmaking talent Javier Sotolongo. Sotolongo made the transfer on his 20th birthday and the unpredictable player is seen as an extremely talented young player with a great future in line. MSO and golden league legend Šerif Bošnjak had these word on the arrival of Sotolongo.

“The history of talented attacking player in Odense is endless, but it has been a while since we have had well recognised strikers in the club. Abu-Aziz, Wiesenthal, Papon, Lundager, Silander and myself are names from a long gone past in the MSO and golden league history. Now we have some of the future greats in the club. Alfred Holst has played a few matches so far and Loloupe and Dividsson will join other homegrown talents like Sinding and Brøndum.

We came to the conclusion that we need something more. backup if we are hit by suspensions or injuries, and also to have players to play multiple positions if we need to change training or readjust things shortly. Sotolongo is such a player and is expected to be here for a long time”.

– Šerif Bošnjak, former Golden league top scorer

MSO declare that the club is still scouting players to strengthen the squad and make 2019 the year of MS Odense. Šerif Bošnjak is quoted for saying “We want to find one or two players more like Sotolongo”.

From All Of Us… Alfred Holst

Merry Christmas followers of Mission Superliga Odense – Here is your Christmas present…

Alfred Holst.

17 years, 13 goals in 16 match. An extremely dangerous striker has signed a contract with MSO today and has left the academy Šerif Bošnjak’s School Of Exellence to pursue a career with the former Golden League III champions.

“We have very high expectations on behalf of both Holst and the club” assistant coach, and former FC Runenberg, striker Alfred Burch said at a press meeting this morning at Šerif Bošnjak Arena in Odense. “In the past MSO has been represented by great strikers and solid attacking talents. We believe that Holst will become a household name among our fans and opponents in the future, just like Bošnjak and myself; Also as talents like Krabbe, Vadstrup and Boldt. We are positive about Holst being able to match the best talents in the country, and it is likely for him to push for a spot in Denmark’s U20 squad a few seasons from today”.

Holst turned 17 earlier this week and look at the contract as the biggest and best birthday and Christmas present he could get this year. “Loloupe, Davidsson and I has been on fire all season in HTUM Division II. Now it is time for me to make it without them – At least for a while. I am looking forward to my debut at Šerif Bošnjak Arena later today. The name of our stadium speaks for it self. Šerif was a great striker and today we, the young players, can learn so much from him and the history of our club and it commits. I will do my best to do just half as well as Šerif, Burch, Vadstrup, Papon, Abu-Aziz and other MSO greats. If i succeed and make it just half of what they did, this will be a great ride” Alfred Holst told the journalist attending.

Alfred Holst get shirt number 9.

Super Trio Strikes Again

It was a fight for top six in HTUM Division II when MSO U18 visited Brazilian Hortinha Contente yesterday. A weak start to the season has been turned around and MSO U18 is halfway through the season fighting for a top position in the division. The reason for success is the talented trio Holst, Loloupe and Davidsson – Three youngsters with attacking talents and lots of goals in between.

The trio has scored 24 of 51 goals in 15 matches and is a major part of MSO U18 being the forth most scoring team in the division. The lack of defence in the Odense lineups is clearly shown in the standing. Odense has conceded more than two goals per match in average. The sixth place is conquered because the team has scored one goal more per match than conceded in average. Holst, Loloupe and Davidsson is the key players behind the success with almost scoring 50% of the goals.

Yesterdays match at Chiqueiro da Beira da Lagoa was a prof of this statistics from the season so far. Holst scored twice, Davidsson and Loloupe once each, in the 5:1 away win against a stronger team. Why? because that trio is as good as it gets. Hopefully they will prove it again next week in the return match at Šerif Bošnjak’s School Of Exellence. A match that seems to be the last at the academy for top scorer Alfred Holst. Eleven goals in fifteen matches is a lot in a very strong division and the performances of Holst has turned into a contract offer for him to join MS Odense. It is expected that the young talent will sign the contract very soon and thereafter he will get his last match for MSO U18 next week.
