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

Scavo’s 10 Teens

“We must get the job done this time. I believe in it. Bosnjak believe in it and Hojris believe in it” MSO president is talking about his old B2B project. A project to make box to box players and building a team for the team and not for individuals. The project has been going on for some months now and even though MS Odense is losing quite a lot these days the project is still on and has even been improved lately. 2 very talented youngsters, Ali Kathem from Kuwait and the unpredictable Guruskanthan Mukkamalla from India, is the new talents in the class and they are good talents.

“We had assembled 8 quality talents and put them together with some homegrown players and Sami as the top player in the club. Then we got some injuries and also we wanted to add one more quick player to our squad. We decided to change the squad a bit. Anton is now our number one goalkeeper and then we got space for Kathem. I got a phone call from Kotakis in Tharangambadi. He had found this big India talent and we decide to go all in on Mukkamalla. He has a lot to prove now because he is the most expensive talent the club have ever bought. We do believe he will grow and become a very important player for us. We are sure that we will pay our money back in wins and success in 2016″ Scavo told MSO blog when we meet him Thursday evening to a talk about his new team.

So who are they. Scavo’s 10 teens? One powerful from Romania, Alfred Postovoi, set to become the future defensive midfielder. Ali Kathem from Kuwait and Henrik Raal from Estonia bring the speed. Akim Manapov from Kyrgyzstan and Malik Mbala from France will hopefully be know as Odense Air Force because of their head specialty. Guruskanthan Mukkamalla from India and Yuya Sano from Japan will bring the unpredictable type of play on the field while Sweden’s Saksin Thepworasuk, Belgium’s Geoffray Ophalvens and Ettore Loprieno from Italy have to entertain the spectators with the technical skills. All talents with an age from 17,006 to 17,060 but do they have what it takes to become the real stars of Odense. If you ask Scavo the answer is yes.

“We have been lucky in the league so far. We have 8 points for in 9 games. We expected none. We have one Golden League win this season. We expected none. The players has already proved that with some hard work and a lot of luck they can surprise our opponents. When we reach 2016 we wont need luck to get the wins and when we start the GL8 playoffs MSO will be there and we wont be no walkover. Not for Rochdale, X-Team, Falcons, KKK or any other possible Golden League opponents. We are on a mission. 2 out of 16 months has gone since we started this project. We like what we have seen so far and we will finish what we have started. This is by far the most talented squad we have ever had. All that matters is the work rate on the training ground. What happen is the matches is only a bonus. That is what it has been like for to months now and that is what it will be like in all of 2015″ Scavo said.
