Yes it is true….

… Piglet Hunters has the advantage in the game against MS Odense U18, tomorrow. 3 wins for, and 1 draw, in the favor of the Aussies is what we are up against this week, but do manager Essenn and PH really have something to brag about or is it a cover of the fact that MS Odense has a much better training program for the youngsters than the Hunters?

Yes it is true… MS Odense has never lost to Pig Hunters… why?…. we have a plan for our youngsters… we care about their future and doesn’t just wanna win ‘today’ but continue to keep on winning in the future. MS Odense has proved time and time again that we can make big changes and use our talent and even let them move along, and still we proven to be a dominant force in the leagues where we have been a participator. We have been a regular top contender in most of our 14 seasons… why?…. because we have long term plans with our academy players.

6 promotions mostly with a handful, or more, homegrown on the team speaks for itself. What plans do Mr. Essenn has for his youngsters? Their manager has even put a bid on a MS Odense player this week… why?….
I’ll let Mr. Essenn answer that question.

Itani, Wang and Bugangidja please bring all you got – please. Show that you can do the walk like you talk the talk….. cause we can and have nothing to lose…

Psycho: Much more and very special

MS Odense will face Renaissance FC in the Golden League later today and for some of the players it is a very special match. The brother vs brother meeting between Geldon and Edi Celaj has dragged a lot of the attention, but there is a lot more to this encounter. The MS Odense blog had a talk with the former Renaissance FC player Sami ‘Psycho’ Arsal, a.k.a The Hungarian Terminator. Today he earns his money in Odense and we had a talk with him about the upcoming match against his former teammates.

First of all thanks for taking you time to talk to us. You will face Renaissance FC today. What do you think about that?
I miss those guys, really. It was the club who made me what I am today and I have many great memories from my stay there. Mr. Peroni was almost like a father figure to me – He is very special. Rock and Showboat learn me a lot about being a pro and I had a great time with Ji, so I have a lot of respect for many of the Renaissance FC players and staff members.

Sounds like you really liked being there, so why did you move to Odense?
Many things was involved. It is all a part of the game to transfer and move on to bigger clubs and adventures, Renaissance FC had to let me go and Odense had, and still has, big plans for me. If you get a chance to be one of the big boys on a team with Baggio and Edi it is tough to say no?

We know Edi is a very good friend of yours. Your thoughts on the reunion with Geldon later today?
I have none! This match is more than Edi and Geldon and it is certainly not a family affair or reunion. This is a Golden League game with points and honor on the line – That’s what’s important to Edi, me and the rest of the team. We also have 2 new guys to help – We want them to get a good debut.

Tell us a bit about those two. António Eurico Pires Ribeiro who is he?
Antonio is a quick young fellow, whom in many ways he reminds me of myself. I can’t tell you much more but he seems like a great guy and I’m sure he will fit perfectly in.

Isaac Estoles?
There is many rumors surrounding this one. I don’t know much about him but ‘they’ say he is a very talented player.

Do you feel the pressure of losing you position on the team with two new young players coming in?
Hell no! Why should I? Nothing has changed for me in the last 24 hour and it won’t. What a stupid question.

Sorry Mr. Arsal. Maybe we better talk a bit more about today’s match
What do you want to know?

Will you be playing?
Yes and I might score a goal if you ask me nicely.

You wanna predict the score?
No! I will predict that this interview is over.

The Celaj’s Reunite

October 13 2011 a star was born when Polish Renaissance FC bought a young Albanian player by the name of Edi. The talent of young Edi was quite obvious and even though he didn’t score the goals as expected, Edi Celai quickly became a household name among Golden League managers, scouts and presidents.

Edi became the most talked about player on the blogs and was constantly linked to other teams, and especially Horus Falcons, after only a months time in RFC. In November 2011 Edi got caught by paparazzi’s and pictures of the 17 years old player in Prague was shown to the world by HU-PRESS, but a few weeks later it became official, that it was all a part of a story to secure the future of Reniassance FC and President Peroni as they was under pressure from the local mafia.

Edi’s home was in Poland and after all the fame and more infamous moments, it was time to climb the ladder as a star player for the future – On December 14th 2011 RFC released this statement:

Fans of Renaissance FC received news this Wednesday afternoon that their petition to have the nickname EC10 officially recognized by Hattrick has come true. Thanks to publicity on HU Press, the young Albanian now proudly displays his nickname on his official player pages and has launched his own brand of EC10 merchandise. Already, sales of his number 10 shirt have doubled in a few hours as the fans prepare for tonight’s friendly game against FC Team of Destruction.

Speaking of the confirmation, Edi said:

“I am overjoyed. It’s a real bonus for myself to boost my identity within the game. I now need to establish myself as a 1st team choice with my performances in every match. My goal obviously, is to help this club win many trophies and get it’s first ever Golden League victory.”

The nick did something to Edi and his play on the field. One month later he scored his first goal as a senior and also voted man of the match. In the following months, young Edi continued to develop his skills in RFC, but on April 20th 2012, trouble was coming to Razskow – This time it was money problems. The board of MS Odense reacted to the rumors about Edi getting a transfer and headed for Poland to discus the price to secure the phenom EC10. The two clubs agreed that 150.000€ would be a fair price and Edi was set to go to Denmark, but still RFC managed to get involved in his life…

Introducing C7
On April 29th, Renaissance FC announced that they had signed a contract with Edi’s elder brother Geldon. The 4 years older brother of EC10 is also a very talented player and he has, just like Edi, played almost every game since his arrival to the club. Geldon Celaj is a powerful player, but just like Edi, he has trouble scoring in Poland, while Edi has started this season very well on that account. Tomorrow the Celaj’s will reunite on the field but on opposite teams – Who will take the victory? Edi is short on words with the excuse that he wants to talk by actions, but he admits that it is a very special match…

“Geldon is my idol and a great player. I haven’t seen him for years and it’s gonna be very special to meet him on the field tomorrow. I know that he, just like I, wants to win this game and I’m sure that it will be a memorable game”.
