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 😉

Success!

The prediction for the season was nothing but defeats, but MSO fought bravely all season and got 1 victory and 4 draws in the league. Those results gave the club a 7th place in one of Denmark’s best VI.series. The club is very satisfied with anything else than the bottom position at this point in time, so the season can be considered as a success.

The club ain’t fooled by the 7 points achieved this season. MSO is still without notable stats on the midfield and that goes for the attack too. Therefor the club has only scored 4 goals in 28 appearances. Christoffer Lyngsø has scored 2 of the goals. Alex Bahnsen one and our only newcomer this season, goalkeeper Mouhsine Boujemaa, scored a goal in his debut for the club, only a few days ago – Some might consider it as a rough season, when a goalkeeper is number 2 on the top scorers list. The sporting management of MSO didn’t expect any goals this season, so again it is a success.

MSO had an esy season on the transfer market. Mouhsine Boujemaa made a 1.8 million$ transfer from Fantalastra in Italy to Odense. The 20 years old goalkeeper from Morocco will fulfill the defensive lineup and has already given a test on where the MSO defense is, with help from the other 9 trainees. Moushine is already getting training and is set to become a very powerful goalkeeper. He is already good, but will get a lot better next season. It is save to say that MSO has found the successor of Paolo Baggio and Emin Allahverdiyev.

MSO still has 10 trainees going into the next season. 9 of them has been in the club for 1½ season. Coming to the club at age 17,0 to 17,10 with acceptable to solid defensive skills – They have all reached brilliant to magnificent at this point in time. The aim is to make a team to be able to compete for GL trophies and higher league positions in Denmark. Therefor the training scheme the club has worked on for 1½ season continue and we expect so provide some serious defensive ratings at the end of next season. By then we will decide what to do, to be ready to be a competitor other must take seriously in GL8 2016.

Staying with the current training scheme will make next season yet another walkover for MSO. We wont expect wins and goals. We have higher expectations though. The defense has become strong and in the last series match of the season we held a excellent midfield away from scoring for 85 minutes before we had to capitalize to a corner+head goal. Even though we can’t score goals our self, we expect to keep many from scoring next season. Hopefully it will give us less defeats than this season. That is the aim of success for the coming season alongside not finishing last in the league.

To our many opponents, friends and followers. We would like to thank you for the good matches we have played this season, for the support and for your advice’s regarding the MSO turnaround we started last season.

Destination: U20

He is only 17,61 years but Friday evening he can play his first international encounter and follow the footsteps of former MSO players Paolo Baggio and Emin Allahverdiyev. The young defensive player Guruskanthan Mukkamalla was added to India’s U20 squad this week and he can get his debut against Venezuela. The sporting management of Mission Superliga Odense is delighted to see the clubs talent development pays off so quickly.

“MSO is in a difficult situation. We have to accept almost two losses a week, but we only do it to make a good team for the future. MSO was fortunate enough to scout some interesting talents last season and lately we have been approached by several U20 scouts about some of our players. It is a recognition of our scouts, players and coaches hard work, that has brought the club and Mukkamalla to this point. We payed 1,7 million dollars for Mukkamalla last season. We did it because he had some extraordinary skills and even though he is an unpredictable kind of player, we believe he will become a very good defensive player in the future and also a very important player for us for many seasons to come” assistant coach Alfred Burch told the press after today’s training session

TRANSFER NEWS

Mission Superliga Odense and the Swedish club Trångsund Town came to an agreement today about the transfer of Saksin Thepworasuk. Thepworasuk had a wish to return home to Sweden after coach Bosnjak had decided to let Jack Møllebjerg play the match against The Pandas Sunday afternoon. MSO would like to say that Saksin has done well for us, but Møllebjerg has impressed the coach lately. We can always use a player with the quality Møllebjerg has and Saksin was losing his spot in the starting lineup and it was only fair to let him go when Trångsund made a bid earlier today. We wish him all the best in the future.
