Is It Time For Ogier The Dane To Wake Up?

“He is said to dwell in the castle of Kronborg, his beard grown down to the floor. He will sleep there until some day when the country of Denmark is in peril, at which time he will rise up and save the nation”.

It’s been a long time since this blog was active. It’s been a long time since the great blog wars was terrorising the world of the golden league and hattrick united. It’s been a while… Lets not hope it is time for Ogier to wake up!

For over a year there have been peace between clubs whom in the past had strong club presidents and golden league council candidates that fought to get the last important words. Today it is a different time in Odense. Mission Superliga Odense is in the past and now the club is named OB 1887. A season ago the chairman of the board Pierpaolo Scavo decided to make a big turn around within the club. His club is done with buying talents and expensive players. Today it is up to club legend Paolo Baggio and 3 handful of homegrown talents to once again make the club anything else than a walkover in the national series as well as in the prestigious golden league tournament. Gone is the big words and promises of making a golden league title contender. Now it is only a matter of pride and getting local talents as good as they can get.

“We think we got a good pool of players at the moment. They have some forces in the attacking part of the game, and with Baggio back home we feel we have the right combination to secure a good future for the club” Scavo said, when asked about how OB 1887 is as a team today. About the situation with newer statements from long time rivals Raszkow Jazz, the OB 1887 president is is very clear in his remarks. “We here in Odense has a very positive vibe around the club as of lately and we will continue to make that spirit grow. We are proud of the fact that the things we have done in the past season has been working so well, that other clubs is following our work closely and that some clubs have decided to go down the same path as we have done. We believe that we have chosen the right path. To develop local talents from Odense and be proud of where they will take us” he said and added. “We know that OB 1887 will for always been one of the smaller clubs in the golden league, but we will be a proud small club and be ready to play teams as Raszkow Jazz, Ghungharu FC and other minor clubs, but we will also be ready to play against all the giants. We will do it with our heads held high and to prove that local talents can make it big once in a while”.
