Strong start closed the match.

A strong start with 2 goals within the first 7 minutes closed the day’s match at MS Park. MS Odense is back on a winning track after a confident 3-0 victory at home against Team Traxx. Toke Lundager took the initiative and sent the ball into the net after only 5 minutes and young Per Frank Byskov came up just 2 minutes later with a rare scoring on his part.

The guests tried to put some pressure on MSO but failed because the home team preformed strong on the midfield today. MSO pulled back and held Traxx from bigger chances and when Kim Kristensen powered the ball into the goal on a free kick after 68 minutes and it was clear that the 3 points were safe. The fight will hopefully be the turning point of a bad start to the season and now await a tough opponent in the cup competitions fourth round where strong Netroma FC guests Odense on Wednesday.

Odense back on track.

The cup match against SuperMule was a close encounter with few opportunities for both teams and therefore the winner was determined by penalty shootout. Both teams went into battle with thoughts on defensive play and two penalties was needed to make 1-1 after 90 minutes. Kim Kristensen made ​​it 1-0 after 49 minutes and in a game without big chances MS Odense were right on track for the 4th round of the cup. The referee wanted some different and after 77 minutes he gave visitors a golden opportunity to get back into matches with a chance from the spot. Cliff Sejrsen did what he had to do and the match went to extra time.

The only chance of scoring in open play went to MS Odense on the 94th minutes when Flemming Overskov had the opportunity to score a golden goal, but Elias Rytter had no trouble getting control of the shoot. In the penalty shootout MS Odense showed no mercy, only Peter Ivarsson failed to score and when the experienced MSO keeper Mikael Jonasson took all shoots from the SuperMule, MSO players could finally celebrate a victory against a reasonable opponent. The club is for the first time in fourth round and although the match is difficult we will hunt opportunity for yet another advancement, but Netroma FC is a very strong opponent, and only an underestimation or an unreasonable GE can send victory to Odense.

RL: Odense still got a chance to go into the Champions League after a fine 1-1 against Panathinaikos ;) http://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/season=2012/matches/round=2000261/match=2007533/postmatch/report/index.html

2 big games in a day.

It’s all football today. Hattrick & OB, the game and reality. I spent many hours putting the team together for today’s match. I have toyed with every opportunity to put up a strong formation and to find tactics, depending on how the game will progress. It’s been quite a task to try to reverse the bad start to the season the team has received. I hope the team will succeed.

It is with a smile on my face that I can say I’ve never been so serious when it comes to put up the tactics before a match. I’ve found the best possible choice and hope that MS Odense will continue in this season’s Cup. It will be the first time the team passes round 3 with a win today. I have good opportunities for advancement as today’s opponent has about the same strength. Whatever the outcome of today’s showdown will be, I have learned a lot about HT and my team the last couple of days and will hopefully be strengthened in future. Today’s match is one of those I really look forward to – Really.

I can not help but mention perhaps the greatest match in Odense for over 15 years and now I am talking RL now. OB (Odense Boldklub) takes on Panathinaikos in the Champions League qualification match at Odense stadium tonight. It will be big match for the club, the city and the fans. 10,000 spectators, including me, will be in place at 20:00. Last time I saw one international match a few years back. A fantastic match against Sparta Prague, who went all the way to penalty shootout. We lost but it was a great night that had everything a football heart beats for. I hope that it will pound as much again tonight.

2 wins today will be amazing ;)

Forza Odense
