Roger Federer At MS Park?

The local press was in a hurry as rumors said that the worlds best tennis player ever Roger Federer was attending the evening training at MS Park today. Rumors was right. Switzerland’s biggest sport attraction was in Odense, not to sign a contract and start playing for MSO, but tot accompany his unknown second cousin when he signed a contract with MSO. Godot Federer will celebrate his 26th birthday this week and he has been signed to help Sami Arsal on the teams midfield and he is happy to be apart of the “Duck To A Swan” project. “I was happy when Mr Burch, Mr Scavo and Mr Bosnjak approached me and told me about the clubs interest in me. Odense is looking for the right direction to go in relation to the club’s future trainees. I am here to stabilize the midfield and i look forward to join Sami in that process” MSO new number 7 told the press earlier tonight – Second cousin Roger also spoke to the press attending the training. “Godot is very determent to do well here in Odense and it looks like a good place for him to continue his career. Odense will also get a very good player who might got a reputation as a nasty fellow, but he is actually a nice guy. On the field he will do everything to win though and you will all see that very soon” he said to MSO_TV.

Odense’ Club President Pierpaolo Scavo was also present and had this to say. “We are happy to have signed a contract with a player as good as Godot. He is jyst as good as Sami and Sami is the reason for Godot being here. Sami has been here once before and he was also with The Flaming Wodkas FC. Two clubs whom often need to battle for secondary places. Both Sami and the club wanted to change that and therefor we toke action and is starting all over. Good players will be leaving us these days, while many many in the early 17s have joined the squad. Those young guys join our the best homegrown we got and a few strong players has been added to the squad. I might not make a big difference in the league this season, but we will be geared for the golden league” Scavo said.

The former MSO and FC Runenberg striker Alfred Burch was also at MS Park to welcome Godot Federer from his native country. The Alpine Express was a part of the negotiations and is delighted to see the deal go trough “Godot is a very solid playmaker and he will do the team good. I was the one who scouted him in Spain and when we got a chance to sign him almost 600.000$ below the average transfer price we went for it. I must praise the management of the club for taking the situation seriously. We need to get MSO back into the better half of the golden league and we want the trophy in season 8. This weeks transfers show that the club are serious and willing to spend money on both good talents and reinforcements. We got 7 new talents to the club. They where defeated by the pirates last night, but we saw a future in that match. A good future. We just need a little more power around the field. Godot is one of them and Alishaer from is another. To come here from Uzbekistan is a big step, but we expect him to do well from day one. Hopefully he will score his first goal on Sunday becuase we bought him to score our goals” the former top scorer and golden league legend said.

Sami Arsal was supposed to be attending the press conference too, but mister psycho-nator wasn’t in the mood to play a good guy after last nights defeat. MSO blog caught up with the temperamental midfielder after the training. “I think we did what we could last night. We were vulnerable with all the guys on the field. We knew it could end with a small defeat and it did. I have no problem with that, but i hate to lose” Sami said before his was confronted with the bad attitude from Cape Verde Pirates president Nunes after their win last night. “Nunes who?” Sami said with a sarcastic tone in his voice. “He is nothing. You wanna know the real Nunes? A lowlife who won some money in the lottery and now he think he is god of football and that he can manage a golden league club?. Man let me tell you mister Nunes. My old friend Peroni know how to run a club. You are nothing else but a… wallows in cheap women, drinking bad whiskey … You remind me of fat bastard! Yes that is what i will call you from now and on – Fat bastard! Call Peroni because you don’t know what you are up against. Trust me” Sami said before heading for the locker rooms.

To Make A Future…

Season 57 is here – The 22nd in MS Odense history and even though we still are a part of the lower series in Denmark, there has been many memorable seasons in the past. Once players like Ørbæk, Bosnjak, Burch, EC10, Baggio, Wiesenthal, Papon, Kotakis, Ace and Psycho was representatives of Mission Superliga Odense. Respected players on and off the field. But before we managed to rise in the ranks for real. Stars was sold to get good money, but it has always ended with a new start. New talents, new dreams… some know where this is going so let’s just stop here.

MS Odense has a plan. To win Golden Leagues season 8. The final will be played 6 seasons from now, but even though that is a lot of time. It does take at least 4-6 seasons to build a competitive team. That is what we have decided to do and the process has started. A handful of young talents will be the foundation of a new and improved MSO. Not a squad that will get a lot of wins in the next two seasons, but they will later on. To make a future you must have a past. The past is here. The past we must have to get a good future is right now.

Lyngsø, Chow, Salin, Sanda is the future of MSO. Now they just need some experience to lean on when the coming seasons will be tough because of a lot of strong opponents and big defeats wait for us. “We are negotiating right now” club president Scavo told MSO blog after the early cup exit. “Hopefully we can announce a new incoming transfer before Sunday’s game against Vollsmose FB. Lyngsø is our new team captain, but we need a leader on and off the field. We need one to guide the young talents in the right direction. We need one who know the ways with the press and one who can handle the pressure when things go bad. But like i told you. We are negotiating at the moment and we will let you know if something happens” Scavo told the press.
