GL Shock: MSO Defeat Tranquebar

MS Odense shocked the India sister club Football Club Tranquebar when the two clubs meet at Šerif Bošnjak Arena in Odense. A decimated home team won unexpectedly over a club with a bigger budget and better players. MS Odense has made big changes to the squad in resent weeks and are still not set for the upcoming season.

3000 fans followed the match live and it was a match of international standard. The two teams have 131 U20 matches and 39 NT matches combined and spread over eight players. MS Odense got the best of it with a surprisingly easy 3:0 win in a match with two defensively oriented lineups. Odense played an unexpected 5-3-2 formation with Armenia goalkeeper Shmavon Dolmayan playing a big match and stopped counterattacks by Tranquebar’s Sudeep Bokil and Hyun-Min Ko. Dolmayan had good reason to be proud because Hyun-Min Ko was rewarded with the HTU Award Forward of the Season before kickoff. If coach Joakim Morgansson had any doubt about the quality he has in goal it was gone after the match. Odense has two talented and strong goalkeepers.

“We are proud of the result today” Morgansson said after the match. “Kenmogne and four with a past in our academy should have been tested more today, but they helped Dolmayan to a clean sheet. They controlled a match against a better team, so even though they obviously tested some new things today, we can and must be proud of this win”. The coach also promised the fans of MS Odense, that the club ain’t finish getting an interesting squad together for the next season. Assistant coach Alfred Burch also confirmed this in mixed zone after the match.

“Players are coming in and out of the club at the moment. The plan is made and being fulfilled at the moment. Our academy will keep filling up the squad with the club’s best talents from a dedicated work at the academy, and in addition I’m think i am aloud to tell you that we’re working on getting some exciting new names to the club in the coming week” was the words from Burch.


Huge Talent To Replace The Legend

September 8th 2011 might be the most important day in MSO history. That was the day one of our scouts found a talented Scottish goalkeeper named Paolo Baggio. Twenty seasons later Baggio can look back on a successful career with 75 international matches with Scotland U20, Scotland NT and a Hattrick Masters appearance. In addition multiple HTU Awards, Golden League moments and record breaking transfers has been linked with his name and career.

At age 38 Baggio ain’t the future of MSO on the field, even though he will continue to be a top figure after his future Hall Of Fame induction. Therefor MSO ha been searching for a successor of the most legendary player to ever represent MSO and today the transfer was made. Cameroon U20 goalkeeper Clinton Kenmogne was signed and is now the most expensive incoming transfer for MSO ever as MSO has payed 15.000.000£ to Kenmogne’s motherclub Rayonero B to release him – It is a lot of money fro one player but this is one with an impressive 44 U20 matches and even though he is still under 21 he has magnificent experience. Players like that cost a lot and for MSO to keep doing better and better, players like Kenmogne is necessary in addition to the many homegrown players in the squad.

We are happy to welcome Clinton Kenmogne to the MSO family and we know that this is the guy we need for future plans


Six years with ‘The Next Big Thing’

September 14, 2011
9/11 – A day most will remember for the rest of our life. It was also a historic day for MS Odense. In a much more positive days though and it has become even more defining that i could ever imagine. MSO was searching for a big talent. One who could change the club forever. One with a good chance to play for U20 – the first MSO player to ever reach U20/NT.

‘The hoss’ hatchet men’ from Scotland, managed by, the current U20 manager at the time, the Hoss was selling an eye catching young goalkeeper talent. At age 17,16 the young goalkeeper transferred to Odense on the day most of us just refer to as 9/11 today. 800000$ was the price and Scotland U20 was the main aim for MSO and a very young Paolo Baggio. The hopes and dreams for Baggio was sky high and in no time he got the nickname ‘The Next Big Thing’.

The inspiration that made the transfer was mutual for both MSO and Baggio. The idea was to make Baggio as good as Truls Vorgaard – Vorgaard was one of the best, probably the best, U20 goalkeeper in the world back then. Huge ambitions for both Baggio and MSO. He couldn’t match Vorgaard but he made his own legacy by getting 28 matches for Scotland U20, 46 matches for NT and one match in HT Masters. He has been honoured with HTU- and MS Awards and have a lifelong ongoing feud with Rochdale United’s Charles ‘Charlie Boy’ Colbourne. Six years ago there was a little hope and some dreams, but it was never expected to be anything compared to this. The money earned and spend for his transfers in and out of MSO tells the story of a great goalkeeper too – Just take a look at the end of this post. Where historic top 20’s for MSO can be seen

‘The Next Big Thing’ Paolo ‘Goldenboy’ Baggio is still active and hopefully he will play a handful of seasons more – only injuries can stop him. three weeks from now Baggio will celebrate his 37th birthday, but is far from done. Today he played match number 201 for MSO and got clean sheet number 81. To mention his two goals scored against FC X-Team and Langer House back in 2012 will be to cruel…. well 😉

MSO is on their way to the best level in the 30 season long history. Baggio started it all six years ago and now he lead the talents to ever better times and greater moments. Even more important is the history in the making. the one i will look back at six years from know 😉
