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.

Odins New Vikings

The process has been on for almost a season and it will continue in global season 58. The rebirth of Mission Superliga Odense is on. A long time ago, Odense was a known as a sanctuary for worshippers of the Nordic god, Odin. Now Odense want to give Odin some new vikings with one mission only – To go and conquer the impossible!

Even though the project is still young, the long time club president of MS Odense Pierpaolo Scavo, is ready to talk about the long term process, to restart a team almost from scratch. 10 players with an age of only 17 years and some few days was brought to Odense to make a joint adventure towards and into 2016. An adventure to capture one of the most valuable trophies under HFA – The golden league trophy!

Almost one season has gone since the start of the project, and even though it hasn’t been successful on the field, MSO will continue to do what they did in the past season. “If you looked at the results it might not seem like a successful season for us, but it was” Scavo said, when we caught up with him earlier today. With 9 defeats, 3 drawn matches and only 2 league wins in one season. How can a dedicated manager like Scavo be please with the situation? “We expected nothing. Nothing at all, and that is why we are satisfied. We are by far the worst team in the league at the moment. But the squad is young. Very talented. It is a squad with a great future. We have no reason to be unhappy. We have scored 14 goals this season and we only have 17 defenders in the lineup. We should be celebrating. We have been the underdogs all season and we have won 4 and had 3 draws this season. much better than expected” he said.

The new season kickoff next week and it seems like the 7 league opponents will be the same once again. That don’t mean a thing to Scavo. “We can almost only disappoint next season because of the points we got this season, but we will continue the road to 2016 with out being shaken by bad results. Only injuries will make us consider changes. We have a very good group of talents and have decided not to spend big money on player without a long future in the club. That give us many defeats, but it also lower salaries and we can keep our money to pay the talents more when they get better. We do not need to win the golden league at this time. We do not need to promote to a higher league level and we have a plan and we intend to follow it all the way to the end”.

Now even though Odense might lose a lot, it doesn’t mean that you should stop following the rise of an old giant. “We have 10 good talents and a few of them is extraordinary talents. Guruskanthan Mukkamalla has done well so far. He is the team captain and has some very good and different skills. That goes for Alfred Postovoi too and Ali Kathem is a candidate for Kuwait U20. MSO will rise again and you haven’t seen the best from us yet”.

2nd day of Hattrick

Manager Hojris, MSO and FCT will celebrate 2nd day of Hattrick

“Alongside many teams, managers and players around the world MS Odense and Football Club Tranquebar will celebrate and support the greatest football manager game in the world on February 27th. One month later (31/3) MS Odense has been a part of Hattrick for 8 years and Hattrick ha been a big part of my life. In almost 8 years i have enjoyed the advice and friendship of many managers both from Denmark and from around the world. I have enjoyed being part of some great communities. Celebrated many victories and cursed many of the losses for my teams. I have seen and ruined a lot of talents and brought a few to stardom on U20’s, on Hattrick United and even more in my mind. It has been a blast so far and i wouldn’t be without this game. That is why you never hear me complain about supporter prices. I am entertained by this games, my teams, my players and my fellow manager colleagues around the world.

The community here is fantastic. Like other people i have my high and lows in the past 8 years and no mater what the managers of the precious federations i am a part of, has been for me. Following my hopes and dreams on going for gold and glory in both the Danish and India leagues. The same managers has supported my crazy ideas and celebrated with me when i succeeded (it has happened once or twice you know ;) ). Many of you i have known for years… well known as manager and some of you have become good friends i care about and people i write to almost every day of the year – I love you all to death. But even though the community is special and great fun. I still enjoy the game like i did back in spring of 2008. I still get a little rush when new seasons kickoff and i still get a little angry when i don’t reach the aims i have set my sights on. So how can i not love a game that bring me so much.

Tjecken (i see he is still around), Johan and all the others HTs made a great game – It still is a great game, and that is why i am still here, and why i feel the need to write this and why it makes me happy that someone make these HT celebration days, and it is also why i will spend credits on February 27th and why i will renew my supporter on the same day. I would encourage all who read this, not only to join the credit event on February 27th, but encourage you all to renew your supporter on the same day – At least one month. Show some appreciation for the game. Yes today we the managers are the game, but without the game we wouldn’t have known each other and had so much fun together for all those years. Do it for yourself and for the game too. It is only a small price for what the game has brought to many of us. I will buy 6 months supporter (what i can afford at the moment) and keep on being a manager and support HT for years to come”.

All the best
