Finally! Rahman Made It.

We finally made it. Rahman finally made it. A little more than a week ago MSO got a player representing Denmark on international level. A 28 seasons struggle ended with a wish came true when Ahmed Abd El Rahman getting his debut.

Last night the road to U20 world cup XXVII started with Ahmed Abd El Rahman playing the entire match against Hanguk U20. A match where the defending champions had to give their best to overcome a surprise lead for the visitors in the first minutes of the match. Denmark was the stronger side of the two and got a deserved 2:1 win in front 180000 spectators at Piggy Arena.

It is a milestone in MSO history and approval of things we wanted to change back in January 2016. Money spend bad, non-compatible squads, poor training programs to make unrealistic aims even more unreachable to reach had to be stopped. We wanted a healthy economy, less transfers and a mainly homegrown squad with a solid plan for training and development and accept that we will never be a strong team in Denmark but IV.series would be nice someday. Today the economy is very good. The promotion before this season was the first in 15 seasons. The all-time stats record was broken last season after almost standing for five years. The training plans are follow as planned and development of the team comes before individuals and short term success. Rahman’s way to U20 is the outcome of this strategy and it is the present and the future of MSO. In addition to the training program and development talks between the club and U20, Røjkjær transferred to MSO last season and another approval of our new strategy. Also it is both our way to say thanks for noticing our talent and to help Denmark to set the strongest squad possible. Unthinkable situation two years ago and another outcome of a strong strategy for MSO.

What is next?
This season is all about Rahman and Røjkjær representing Denmark. It is a milestone and a motivation to continue what we are doing. Flamskär, Klokmose, Schwaner, Coling and Hestehauge is the next pool of talents from the academy promoting this season. Not on the level as Rahman, but strong enough to make a wider, stronger and flexible squad of homegrown players to keep pushing the limit for how strong MSO can get, both with the homegrown players but also compared to our entire history. A reasonable aim for the future and more realistic than dreams, ideas and hopes from the past.


A night in Baki

In front of 90000+ people on Стадион Почётных Медоносов in Baki, at the border of the Caspian sea. MS Odense goalkeeper Emin Allahverdiyev got a place on the bench last night, when Azərbaycan U20 started their World Cup campaign with a bang, in the 2-2 game against Latvia U20.

“Emin is very proud of representing his country and MS Odense is proud to have a new international player in the squad – Only the second in the history, with Paolo Baggio from Scotland being the first one. Azərbaycan is a small nation and they ended on the last place in the last qualifier. MS Odense would like to congratulate Emin and his fellow countrymen on the good performance last night and on getting 1 point at home. Emin is happy to be in the squad and we hope that he will get a chance to represent his country on the field later on this season – For now, he will return home and get ready to represent MS Odense in the danish league, the Golden League and in the Hans Christian Andersen Cup”.

Next week Pheonicia Stadium in Mont-Liban, Lebanon, host the U20 battle between Azərbaycan U20 and Lebanon U20.


MSO-TV: Live From Antrim

Reporter Lundager (middle): “Good evening folks and welcome to MSO-TV, and welcome to Stadium Of Hope in Antrim, North Ireland. We are happy to have the chance to broadcast live from this beautiful studio, witch we share with Scottish TV, tonight. The issues we gonna discus tonight is of course Paolo Baggio, who plays his 10th international tonight. We have MS Odense manager, owner of Baggio, in the studio (left) to talk about Scotland’s number 1, under 21, goalkeeper. We will also keep you updated on the game between Lokomotiv Veltem YC and MS Odense U18, where Magnus Primdahl will play his last match. To the right on your screen we have invited Odense scout Rune Graversen to a talk about finding the talents like Baggio, Primdahl and EC10. Welcome to MSO-TV – Live from Antrim, here in North Ireland”

Lundager: “Fantastic goals we all just witnessed here at Stadium Of Hope. Sharpley was the goalscorer after18 minutes. Mr. Hojris your thoughts on the game, and especially Paolo’s performance, so far”.

Hojris: “Fantastic goal and good play from the visitors so far. Paolo has done well in the first 20 minutes. He has talk a lot about making a clean sheet tonight. We can only hope that he succeeds in his quest”.

Lundager: “We will cross our fingers and hope. Mr. Graversen, 0-0 at the academy against Veltem. Arne just ahd the first chance of the match. Your thoughts on that game so far?”.

Graversen: “We have had a lot of trouble winning games for sometime now, but i hope that the friendly against Mejores has proven that we are heading in a most possible direction. I think the boys want to give Magnus a farewell victory and Arne just showed what it takes to take Veltem down”.

Lundager: “Gooooalll North Ireland. Dickinson just passed Baggio and the score is now 1-1”.

Hojris: “Yes Paolo didn’t look to good in that situation”.

Graversen: “Bom is looking good tonight. He will have to be one of those to take over when Magnus’ new contract will be affective after the weekend. Bom looks really good tonight”.

Lundager: “What makes a talent like Bom and how long can he get as a senior player?”.

Graversen: “It’s difficult to predict. He won’t be a new Baggio or like Edi, but he has some other skills that could be useful in the future. he is fast and has some potential to play on the wing, but how far he can get it mostly his own choice. Skills and personality makes the true stars”.

Lundager: “Nice save Paolo. Dickson should have scored but was denied by Scotland’s goalkeeper”.

Hojris: “That’s how we know Paolo. Fantastic save. It can effect Dickinson badly for the rest of the night”.

Lundager: “1-1 at half time, here at Stadium Of Hope. Still 0-0 at the academy in Odense. Mr. Hojris – Paolo Baggio! What is he like and how does he effect your team?”.

Hojris: “Tonight’s game against North Ireland tells the story. Yes Paolo still needs to improve a lot of things, but at age 19,20 he already has the skills to make a difference and often show that in Odense too. He is by far the best player we got and he will get better in the next couple of seasons. The two season we have had him on our team has been great and the best has yet to come”.

Lundager: “No doubt. We haven’t seen the best of him yet. Mr. Graversen your comments on Paolo’s talent”.

Graversen: “He has a special gift and was born to be a star. You notice that in a second when you see him in action. It is very doubtful if we will ever find a talent like that again. My trip to Scotland back then was like a special day and it feels like once in a lifetime to have found a player like this”.

Lundager: “You have been watching the game at the academy very close. A comment on the first half, that ended 0-0”.

Graversen: “Veltem had a bit more play, but i think we looked good and they can praise De Groote a lot for not being behind. Arne and Bom has played a good game so far and the defense with Magnus as the general has kept Kastrup out of work in the first 45. Very impressive so far”.

Lundager: “Odense bought EC10, Edi Celai, earlier this week. He scored in his debut, has signed a contract with Jolly Cola. Why did you buy him and what are the future plans with him?”.

Hojris: “We have always said, that if we got the chance to offer him a contract, we would do that. The chance appeared this week and now he is here. He has a lot of fans i Odense and it was only natural for us to get him to the club, both as a player for the future but also to please the fans. Luckily we also got an offer from Jolly Cola following the signing and now he is the face of the company and we got some money for his work. It’s the first player from us, who has been in a commercial and we hope that more will follow. Edi might not be the most skill full player we got, but we believe that just like Paolo, he is the total package on the long run”.

Graversen: “Yeeeeeeeees! Sandberg has just put our boys at the academy in front. A victory against Veltem will be very surprising to most of us”.

Lundager: “Sandberg? One for the future?”.

Hojris: “No doubt that Rune, Mogens, Yannis and I will have a talk with him in the weeks to come. It’s mostly about what he want, cause the talent he got”.

Lundager: “To casual kind of play from Primdahl there. Mogens Lauridsen looks furious?”

Hojris: “Yes! Mogens has a lot of temper and Magnus has a lot to learn, but I hope he will sign the contract by the end of the week. We still believe in him and accept that young players makes mistakes from time to time”.

Lundager: “An inexperienced tackle by Bjerrum gives him a yellow card? Does inexpediency mean something when you try to sign player like Primdahl?”.

Graversen: “In some matter, but if you have a talent that can uphold the mistakes that you obviously can’t avoid. Then we have no trouble signing the youngest on the market. Look at North Ireland in this game. Even players on a international level makes weird decisions from time to time. They have to perform on a high level in a whole season, not just one match, and once in a while they will fail to accomplish anything in a entire match”.

Hojris: “Justice has been served at the academy. Bom just scored. 2 up with a short time left. It looks like a great evening for us and for Bom. He has been here, there and everywhere tonight”.

Graversen: “Yes he has showed what we know he can if he gives everything he got”.

Lundager: “Bardy replaces Baggio with one minute to go. Expected?”.

Hojris: “Yes that has been a tactic of Donrobson almost every game this season. Paolo didn’t get a clean sheet, but he did well and had a fantastic save tonight. He decides his own future. He can get everything he got”.

“First keeper chance in the WC qualifier?”.

Hojris: “With all the respect for Brady – Yes. Paolo is number one in Odense and Scotland’s U20. Only injuries can chance that at the moment”.

Lundager: 1-1 here at Stadium Of Hope and there is a lot of positive hopes for Scotland and Paolo after this game”.

Hojris: “Next season they must stand the test. We will see what they are made of then”.

Graversen: “Drew and Paolo stood out in this game like many times before. They will be some of the most important players for the new manger in Scotland. They have that little extra”.

Lundager: “2-0 in Odense, 3-2 in Prague and 4-0 in Latvia. Any comments on those results?”.

Graversen: “Our win is the surprise and it gives us a chance to take the 3rd place at the end, if we are lucky. Primdahl was voted MOM, but Bjerrum did very well to and my personal favorite today has to be Bom. A dangerous winger, taht really made the night difficult for the visitors”.

Hojris: “Fantastic game by Primdahl. That’s why we have him as a top ranked player at the moment. I really look forward to see where his career will take him. We will do the best to help in the right direction if he let us”.

Lundager: “Well thank both for taking your time to be here at Stadium Of Hope, this Friday evening and congratulations the two fine results tonight. To you our viewers thanks for sticking with us tonight. We will be back sooner than later and we hope you will be here to follow MS Odense, their talents and star of tomorrow. Thank you and good night”.
