I det virkelige liv går det rigtig skidt for Odense Boldklub (forkortet OB) - og det har det gjort i mange år. - Efter 13 kampe fyrede de deres træner, og efter 14 kampe ligger de på 10. pladsen ud af 12 med kun 3 sejre, 4 uafgjorte og 7 nederlag og 13 point. De er kun heldige, at de to hold under dem klarer sig endnu dårligere (de er også oprykkere). 4 point over nedrykningsstregen for en klub, der sigter efter at være i top 6, virker ret langt væk.

 

Så min idé var at prøve at finde en måde at få Odense Boldklub tilbage til, hvor de var engang. Men det er længe siden. I de sidste 12 sæsoner har de kun formået at komme i top seks én gang! Og i 3 sæsoner i træk 2008/09, 2009/10 og 2010/11 sluttede de på 2. pladsen. Så vil det være muligt at opnå noget lignende? Få klubben tilbage til top seks og tilbage til europæisk fodbold?

 

Følg med på rejsen, som forhåbentlig venter forude!

 

 

In real life Odense Boldklub (OB for short) is doing really badly - and has been doing badly for many years. - After 13 games they sacked their coach, and at 14 games they find themselves at 10th out of 12 with only 3 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses and 13 points. They're only in luck that the two teams beneath them are doing even worse (they're newly promoted too). 4 points above the relegation-zone for a club, which aims for being in the top 6, seems pretty far away.
 

So my idea was to try to figure out, a way to get Odense Boldklub back to where they once was. But it has been a long while. For the last 12 seasons they have only managed to get into the top six once! And for 3 seasons in a row 2008/09, 2009/10 and 2010/11 they finished 2nd. So will it be possible to achieve something similar? Get the club back to top six, and back to european football?

 

Follow for the journey which hopefully awaits!

I am not quite sure of the layout yet, so this might change.

Transfers & pre-season 2023
 

Transfers

Danish

English

 

I sommerens transfervindue var der i Odense fuld gang i svingdøren, for at sige det mildt. Inden den nye manager (jeg) tiltrådte, var der allerede aftalt en lang række handler, hvilket betød at hele 16 spillere blev sendt ud af døren, mens 12 spillere kom til OB. Handlerne blev færdiggjort drypvis i hele opstarten, hvilket ville sige, at den sidste der kom til først startede i OB den 30. september, ca. 2 måneder efter sæsonstart, mens den sidste der forlod OB smuttede 1. september.

Lidt på grund af de drypvise nye spillere, følte jeg mig nødsaget til at finde spillere der kunne være med nu! Og for at få lidt mere og bedre bredde i truppen. Derfor blev der aftalt prøvetid med 12 spillere, med navne som Radja Nainggolan, Ante Coric og Nicolai Jørgensen.
 

Ud af de 12 blev de 5 af dem hentet til OB. 


Der blev sendt yderligere 8 spillere på lejeophold i mindre klubber, primært yngre spillere.

 

I alt blev der hentet intet mindre end 19 nye spillere og afhændet 14 spillere, samt udlejet 12 spillere.

 

During the summer transfer window, the door was in full swing in Odense, to say the least. Before the new manager (me) took over, a large number of deals had already been agreed, which meant that a total of 16 players were sent out the door, while 12 players came to OB. The trades were completed in dribs and drabs throughout the start-up, which meant that the last player to join OB did not start in OB until September 30, approx. 2 months after the start of the season, while the last player to leave OB left on September 1.

 

Due to the drip-feed of new players, I felt compelled to find players who could join now! And to get a little more and better width in the squad. Therefore, a trial contract was agreed with 12 players, with names like Radja Nainggolan, Ante Coric and Nicolai Jørgensen.

 

Out of the 12, 5 of them were signed to OB.


Another 8 players were sent on loan to smaller clubs, primarily younger players.

 

All in all no less than 19 new players signed for the club, while 14 players were let go, furthermore 12 players were loaned out.

Pre-season

Danish

English

 

Efter alle til- og afgange, var der også tid til at der rent faktisk skulle spilles lidt fodbold, og til en start en håndfuld træningskampe – et par store som Kaiserslautern og RSC Anderlecht, en mod Næstved og til sidst mod Sønderjyske – Første kamp mod Kaiserslautern blev tabt 1-2, overraskende nok blev kampen mod Anderlecht vundet med 3-1, vundet blev også kampen mod Næsted med 2-0, Sønderjyske-kampen endte 0-0. Herefter var der 1 uge til næste kamp og første kamp i Superligaen var et møde mod Randers – Derefter ventede en relativ hård start, hvor OB skulle møde både FCK, Brøndby og AGF indenfor de første 5 kampe.

 

Allerede inden sæsonen var gået i gang blev Bashkim Kadrii skadet, en skade med et brækket ribben, der ville holde ham ude 7-8 uger. Hvilket også var derfor at Nicolai Jørgensen var blevet hentet ind.

 

After all the arrivals and departures, there was also time to actually play some football, and to start with a handful of training matches - a couple of big ones like Kaiserslautern and RSC Anderlecht, one against Næstved and finally against Sønderjyske - The first match against Kaiserslautern was lost 1-2, surprisingly the match against Anderlecht was won 3-1, the match against Næstved was also won 2-0, the Sønderjyske match ended 0-0. Then there was 1 week until the next match and the first match in the Superliga was a match against Randers - Then a relatively tough start awaited, where OB had to face both FCK, Brøndby and AGF within the first 5 matches.

 

Even before the season had started, Bashkim Kadrii was injured, an injury with a broken rib that would keep him out for 7-8 weeks. Which was also why Nicolai Jørgensen had been brought in.

De to hold skulle lige se hinanden ad, og måske OB-spillerne lige skulle lære hinanden lidt bedre at kende. Det var i hvert fald Randers der kom foran efter 28 minutter på mål af Tobias Klysner. Der gik dog ikke mere end ét minut, så havde Alasana Manneh scoret til 1-1 på Nature Energy Park foran 10510 spændte tilskuere.


Det næste mål kom først cirka 20 minutter inde i anden halvleg, og det var gæsternes Stephen Odey der scorede til 1-2. Dette så længe ud til at blive resultat, men i det 86. minut formåede Randers’ målmand Carlgren at se meget dum ud, idét der kommer en bold fra midten af egen banehalvdel fra Aske Adelgaard. Bolden hopper lige ved målfeltet, og da Carlgren springer for at gribe den, misser han den totalt, og den triller i mål. Adelgaards første mål for de stribede. Kampen endte 2-2. 

The two teams needed to see each other off, and perhaps the OB players needed to get to know each other a little better. In any case, it was Randers who took the lead after 28 minutes on a goal by Tobias Klysner. However, no more than a minute later, Alasana Manneh scored to make it 1-1 at Nature Energy Park in front of 10510 excited spectators.


The next goal didn't come until about 20 minutes into the second half, and it was the visitors' Stephen Odey who scored to make it 1-2. This seemed to be the result for a long time, but in the 86th minute, Randers' goalkeeper Carlgren managed to look very stupid when a ball from the middle of his own half came from Aske Adelgaard. The ball bounced just outside the box, and when Carlgren jumped to catch it, he missed it completely and it rolled into the goal. Adelgaard's first goal for the stripes. The match ended 2-2.

| xG 1.21 vs 1.14 | Result: 2-2 | Possession 59/41 |

 

En tur til Brøndby, en tur som OB meget hurtigt gerne vil glemme. Det vil Daniel Wass derimod næppe. Efter 41 minutter havde Daniel Wass nemlig scoret, ikke bare ét, ikke bare to, men hele 3 mål og sendt OB’s spillernes moral langt ned. Ikke nok med det så ville Divkovic også lige på måltavlen inden pausen, og OB måtte gå til pause nede 4-0. I anden halvleg blev der dog pyntet lidt på det, og kampen endte 4-2. Deedson scorede sit første OB-mål. 

A trip to Brøndby, a trip that OB will soon forget. Daniel Wass, on the other hand, is unlikely to. After 41 minutes, Daniel Wass had scored not just one, not just two, but three goals and sent OB's players' morale way down. Not only that, Divkovic also wanted to get on the scoreboard before the break, and OB had to go into the break down 4-0. In the second half, however, things got a little better and the match ended 4-2. Deedson scored his first OB goal.

| xG 2.05 vs 2.18 | Result: 4-2 | Possession 36/64 |

 

Efter nederlaget til Brøndby skulle OB forsøge at rejse sig igen, og det var mod Viborg FF på Nature Energy Park. Deedson scorede efter blot 2 minutter, 10 minutter senere kom første mål i OB-trøjen fra Nicolai Jørgensen. Slotsager scorede sit første OB-mål 10 minutter senere, og Al Hajj fik også sit første mål da uret havde passeret 36. minutter. I anden halvleg skete der ikke så meget, Viborg fik reduceret til 4-1, og det blev kampens resultat. 

After the defeat to Brøndby, OB had to try to get up again, and it was against Viborg FF at Nature Energy Park. Deedson scored after just 2 minutes, 10 minutes later the first goal in the OB shirt came from Nicolai Jørgensen. Slotsager scored his first OB goal 10 minutes later, and Al Hajj also got his first goal when the clock had passed 36 minutes. In the second half, not much happened, Viborg reduced the score to 4-1, and that was the result of the match.

| xG 3.10 vs 1.60 | Result: 4-1 | Possession 60/40 |

 

OB skulle en tur til København. Efter 15 minutter kom OB foran, ved mål af tidligere FCK’er Nicolai Jørgensen. Desværre stod der efter FCK på resten af kampen, som de vandt med 3-1. Næste opgave var hjemme mod AGF. 

OB had a trip to Copenhagen. After 15 minutes, OB took the lead through a goal by former FCK player Nicolai Jørgensen. Unfortunately, it was FCK for the rest of the match, which they won 3-1. The next task was at home against AGF.

| xG 1.83 vs 1.10 | Result: 3-1 | Possession 32/68 |

 

Efter en rædsom start, hvor AGF scorede efter blot 30 sekunder, kom holdet flot tilbage, og kom rent faktisk foran 2-1. Selvén blev indskiftet og lavede sin første assists og scorede sit første mål for OB efter 72. minutter. Desværre holdt føringen ikke hele kampen, da AGF i det 90. minut scorede til kampens resultat 2-2.

After a horrible start, where AGF scored after just 30 seconds, the team came back strongly and actually went ahead 2-1. Selvén was substituted and made his first assist and scored his first goal for OB after 72 minutes. Unfortunately, the lead didn't last the whole match, as AGF scored in the 90th minute to make the score 2-2.

 

| xG 1.54 vs 1.18 | Result: 2-2 | Possession 54/46 |

 

Efter den uafgjorte kamp mod AGF og nederlaget i forrige runde mod FCK, skulle holdet nu en tur til oprykkerne fra Hvidovre. Det blev en meget lige kamp målt på xG og boldbesiddelse, men alligevel formåede OB at trække det længste strå og vinde 3-0 med alle 3 mål scoret i anden halvleg. Både Burey og Buya Turay scorede deres første mål i OB-trøjen.

After the draw against AGF and the defeat in the previous round against FCK, the team now had to travel to the promoted team from Hvidovre. It was a very even match in terms of xG and ball possession, but OB still managed to draw the longest straw and win 3-0 with all 3 goals scored in the second half. Both Burey and Buya Turay scored their first goals in the OB shirt.

| xG 1.09 vs 1.41 | Result: 0-3 | Possession 55/45 |

Efter kampen mod Hvidovre, stod det på en kamp mod Vejle, som også var en af de kampe som OB forventede at vinde. Det gjorde de også takket være en god præstation af Don Deedson, der scorede 2 gange i 2-1 sejren.

After the match against Hvidovre, it was on to a match against Vejle, which was also one of the matches OB expected to win. They did, thanks to a great performance by Don Deedson, who scored twice in the 2-1 victory.

| xG 2.25 vs 1.71 | Result: 2-1 | Possession 55/45 |

 

Dernæst kom Silkeborg IF på besøg i Odense. Også en af de kampe som OB forventede at vinde. Det blev en tæt kamp, hvor alle målene først faldt i anden halvleg. OB kom foran kort efter pausen på mål af Al Hajj. Føringen holdt til minut 70, da Silkeborg gjorde det til 1-1. Kort herefter scorede Manneh dog til kampens resultat 2-1.

Next, Silkeborg IF came to visit Odense. Also one of the matches that OB expected to win. It was a close match, with all the goals coming in the second half. OB took the lead shortly after the break on a goal by Al Hajj. The lead lasted until minute 70, when Silkeborg made it 1-1. Shortly afterwards, however, Manneh scored to make the score 2-1.

| xG 1.59 vs 0.66 | Result: 2-1 | Possession 62/38 |

 

OB trådte ind i pokalturneringens 2. runde, og her skulle de møde amatørklubben Haderslev Fodboldklub fra de lavere danske rækker. Kampen blev en walkover for OB, der vandt hele 1-10. Både Köhler, Burey og Selvén scorede 2 gange.

OB entered the second round of the cup tournament, where they faced the amateur club Haderslev Fodboldklub from the lower Danish leagues. The match was a walkover for OB, who won 1-10. Köhler, Burey and Selvén scored twice.

| xG 0.45 vs 7.00 | Result: 1-10 | Possession 38/62 |

 

Næste kamp i rækken var mod FC Midtjylland, en svær kamp. Og en meget lige kamp, der endte 2-2. OB så skuffede ud bagefter, da de rent faktisk var foran 0-2, men FCM havde alligevel haft alt spillet. 

The next match in the series was against FC Midtjylland, a difficult match. And a very even match that ended 2-2. OB looked disappointed afterwards, as they were actually ahead 0-2, but FCM had had all the play anyway.

| xG 3.85 vs 0.48 | Result: 2-2 | Possession 69/31 |

 

Den tredje udekamp i træk, også tredje kamp i Jylland. Denne gang skulle OB til Thisted og møde Thisted FC fra 2. division i pokalturneringen. En kamp hvor OB var favoritter, og en kamp som OB også vandt 1-4.

The third away game in a row, also the third game in Jutland. This time OB was going to Thisted to meet Thisted FC from the 2nd division in the cup tournament. A match where OB were favorites, and a match that OB also won 1-4.

| xG 1.54 vs 2.60 | Result: 1-4 | Possession 36/64 |

 

Første kamp i oktober var en hjemmekamp mod Lyngby. En tæt kamp med massere af mål, der heldigvis for OB endte ud deres favør, da de vandt kampen med cifrene 4-3.

The first match in October was a home match against Lyngby. A close match with lots of goals, which fortunately for OB ended in their favor as they won the match with the figures 4-3.

| xG 2.22 vs 1.54 | Result: 4-3 | Possession 60/40 |

                                                                                                                

OB skulle en tur til Farum og spille på kunstgræs. Det blev ikke en god tur til Farum, da holdet måtte kører hjem med et nederlag på 2-1, i et lige opgør, hvor OB ellers kom foran 0-1 og havde mest boldbesiddelse.

OB had to travel to Farum and play on artificial turf. It was not a good trip to Farum, as the team had to drive home with a defeat of 2-1, in an even match, where OB otherwise came ahead 0-1 and had the most ball possession.

| xG 1.80 vs 0.96 | Result: 2-1 | Possession 38/62 |

 

Igen stod der FC Midtjylland på plakaten, denne gange hjemme i Odense. Ligesom sidste gang blev dette en tæt affære. OB kom igen foran, en føring som holdt lige indtil minut 83, hvor FCM udlignende til kampens resultat 1-1.

Once again FC Midtjylland was on the bill, this time at home in Odense. Just like last time, this was a close affair. OB took the lead again, a lead that lasted until minute 83, when FCM equalized to make the score 1-1.

| xG 3.08 vs 1.51 | Result: 1-1 | Possession 55/45 |

 

Den sidste kamp i oktober var et møde mod Silkeborg IF i Silkeborg. Også dette var på kunstgræs, og også dette blev en tæt kamp. SIF kom foran efter 74 minutter, og var foran indtil dybt inde i overtiden, hvor Al Hajj efter 95 minutter scorede til kampens resultat 1-1.

The last match in October was a meeting against Silkeborg IF in Silkeborg. This too was on artificial turf, and this too was a close match. SIF took the lead after 74 minutes and were ahead until deep into injury time, where Al Hajj scored after 95 minutes to make the score 1-1.

| xG 1.13 vs 1.25 | Result: 1-1 | Possession 49/51 |

 

Efter et par gode måneder og 9 kampe, med kun ét nederlag befandt OB sig på en tredjeplads i ligaen, dog stærkt forfulgt af FCN, AGF og SIF der alle havde 20 point. Pt. i nedrykningsspillet lå FCM med 19 point og Viborg IF med 15 point. Der resterede 4 kampe i efteråret før en vinterpause på lidt over 2 måneder fandt sted. I den indledende fase resterede i de nye år yderligere 5 kampe.

 

I starten af november skulle OB i pokalturneringens 4. runde møde Aarhus Fremad. En kamp hvor OB alt andet lige måtte være favoritter.

 

Kadriis efterår havde ikke været nemt, da han sammenlagt indtil slut oktober havde været ramt af et par brækkede ribben, der holdt ham ude i 6 uger, og senest i starten af september blev han haseskadet, hvilket holdt ham ude i 5 uger. En fejl af undertegnede medført, at nyindkøbet Tom Trybull, der kom til klubben 30.9, ikke kunne registreres og derved ikke kunne spille fodbold for OB før næste registreringsvindue i januar. En klar fejl, som undertegnede ikke håbede ville koste for meget i det lange løb.

 

After a couple of good months and 9 games, with only one defeat, OB found themselves in third place in the league, but strongly followed by FCN, AGF and SIF who all had 20 points. Currently in the relegation playoffs were FCM with 19 points and Viborg IF with 15 points. There were 4 matches remaining in the fall before a winter break of just over 2 months took place. In the initial phase, 5 more matches remained in the new year.

 

In early November, OB was to meet Aarhus Fremad in the 4th round of the cup tournament. A match where OB, all other things being equal, had to be favorites. 

 

Kadrii's fall had not been easy, as until the end of October he had suffered a couple of broken ribs that kept him out for 6 weeks, and most recently in early September he suffered a hamstring injury, which kept him out for 5 weeks. An error by the undersigned meant that new acquisition Tom Trybull, who joined the club on September 30, could not be registered and thus could not play football for OB until the next registration window in January. A clear mistake that the undersigned hoped would not cost too much in the long run.

Første kamp i november var mod Aarhus Fremad i pokalturneringens 4. runde. En kamp hvor OB var favoritter, men også en kamp, hvor tilskuerne skulle vente længe på mål. Først i minut 82 blev der scoret af OB, og 2 minutter senere blev der scoret til 1-1. Derfor måtte holdene ud i forlænget spilletid. Her scorede OB yderligere 2 gange til kampens resultat 1-3.

 

The first match in November was against Aarhus Fremad in the 4th round of the cup tournament. A match where OB were favorites, but also a match where the spectators had to wait a long time for a goal. It wasn't until minute 82 that OB scored, and 2 minutes later the score was 1-1. Therefore, the teams had to go into extra time. Here OB scored 2 more times to make the score 1-3.

| xG 0.72 vs 3.54 | Result: 1-3 | Possession 55/45 |

 

Herefter stod der Superligafodbold på plakaten, ude mod Lyngby. Ligesom i første møde blev det en målrig affære med hele 5 mål. OB vandt kampen 2-3, efter at have været foran 0-3.

Hjemme i Odense tog holdet i mod Hvidovre, i en af de kampe som man på forhånd havde forventet at OB skulle vinde. Sådan gik det bare ikke, og ingen af holdene formåede at score.

At home in Odense, the team took on Hvidovre, in one of the games that OB was expected to win. It didn't work out that way, and neither team managed to score.

| xG 0.75 vs 1.10 | Result: 0-0 | Possession 49/51 |

 

Sidste kamp i november og endnu en udekamp. Holdet mødte Randers FC, og kunne køre hjem med en spinkel 0-1 sejr i bagagen.

Den første af de to kampe mod AaB i pokalturnerings kvartfinale fandt sted i Aalborg. Det blev en tæt kamp med 5 mål. AaB kom foran 1-0, OB kom på 1-1, AaB kom på 2-1, OB kom på 2-2, og 10 minutter før slutfløjtet scorede AaB kampens sidste mål til 3-2. Et spinkelt nederlag til OB, der dog stadig kunne afgøre det hele hjemme i Odense.

The first of the two matches against AaB in the cup quarterfinals took place in Aalborg. It was a close match with 5 goals. AaB got ahead 1-0, OB got 1-1, AaB got 2-1, OB got 2-2, and 10 minutes before the final whistle AaB scored the last goal of the match to 3-2. A narrow defeat for OB, who could still decide it all at home in Odense.

| xG 1.70 vs 0.93 | Result: 3-2 | Possession 46/54 |

 

5 dage senere var de to igen i kamp. Foran over 11.000 tilskuere kom OB godt fra start da Al Hajj scorede efter 2 minutter. Nouck udbyggede føringen til 2-0 efter 13 minutter. AaB fik reduceret til 2-1 4 minutter senere. Der blev scoret endnu et mål før pausen da OB bragte sig foran 3-1. I anden halvleg bragte OB sig yderligere foran da Nouck scorede til 4-1. Dybt inde i overtiden scorede AaB endnu et mål til kampens resultat 4-2.

5 days later, the two were back in action. In front of over 11,000 spectators, OB got off to a good start when Al Hajj scored after 2 minutes. Nouck extended the lead to 2-0 after 13 minutes. AaB reduced the deficit to 2-1 4 minutes later. Another goal was scored before half-time as OB went 3-1 up. In the second half, OB went further ahead when Nouck scored to make it 4-1. Deep into injury time, AaB scored another goal to make the score 4-2.

 

| xG 2.72 vs 0.92 | Result: 4-2 | Possession 67/33 |

 

Efterårens fodbold var nu slut, og spillerne kunne hold ferie fra den 11.12.2023 til 18.2.2024 - Og her var det så tid til at manageren kunne gå på vinterens transfervindue. Det var blevet til ét nederlag, og det var til AaB i første kamp - som reelt set ikke betød det store, da OB alligevel kvalificerede sig til semifinalen mod Randers.

 

I november og december Martin Hansen været ude i 12 dage med skade, og selvfølgelig havde Kadrii også været skadet i 4 uger. Burey blev også skadet i næstsidste kamp mod AaB.

 

Med 5 kampe tilbage af den indledende fase var holdet på tredjepladsen, selvom der ikke var langt ned til syvendepladsen og nedrykningsgruppen. OB's sidste 5 kampe var Viborg, Brøndby, AGF, Vejle og FCK.

 

 

The fall football was now over, and the players could take a vacation from 11.12.2023 to 18.2.2024 - and now it was time for the manager to start the winter transfer window. There had been one defeat, and that was to AaB in the first match - which didn't really mean much, as OB still qualified for the semi-final against Randers.

 

In November and December Martin Hansen was out for 12 days with injury, and of course Kadrii had also been injured for 4 weeks. Burey was also injured in the penultimate game against AaB.

 

With 5 games left of the preliminary phase, the team was in third place, although it was not far down to seventh place and the relegation group. OB's last 5 games were Viborg, Brøndby, AGF, Vejle and FCK.

Transfers january 2024
 

Danish

 English

I vinterens transfervindue var der igen gang i det i Odense. Bestyrelsen accepterede et bud på det unge megatalent Tobias Slotsager, der blev blev solgt til Juventus for 8,75 mio. kr., en aftale der kunne løbe op i mindst 24 mio. kr. og oveni en 30% videresalgsklausul. OB lejede ham tilbage indtil sommer. Udover ham, blev Troels Kløve og Tom Trybull solgt, begges kontrakter udløb til sommer. Derudover nåede klubben aldrig at forlænge med Kadrii, da han gentagne gange afslog, og da man passerede nytår skrev han under med Abha Club i Saudi Arabien. Det samme skete med Bernat, der skrev under med FCM, begge først fra 1.7.2024.

 

Den tidligere Esbjerg-spiller Mushaga Bakenga blev hentet ind på en fri transfer fra Stabæk i Norge. Målmand Emil Holst blev også hentet i Norge. Peter Kaiser og Kaare Barslund blev lejet i FC Nordsjælland for resten af sæsonen.

 

Ligesom andre klubber havde været på rov i OB, havde OB også haft fingrene ude efter et par spillere, som måske kom til klubben til sommer.

 

 

In the winter transfer window, Odense was once again in the thick of things. The board accepted a bid for the young mega-talent Tobias Slotsager, who was sold to Juventus for DKK 8.75 million, a deal that could amount to at least DKK 24 million and on top of a 30% resale clause. OB leased him back until the summer. In addition to him, Troels Kløve and Tom Trybull were sold, both contracts expired this summer. In addition, the club never managed to extend with Kadrii, as he repeatedly refused, and as the New Year passed, he signed with Abha Club in Saudi Arabia. The same happened with Bernat, who signed with FCM, both only from 1.7.2024.

 

Former Esbjerg player Mushaga Bakenga was brought in on a free transfer from Stabæk in Norway. Goalkeeper Emil Holst was also brought in from Norway. Peter Kaiser and Kaare Barslund were hired by FC Nordsjælland for the rest of the season.

 

Just as other clubs had been on the prowl in OB, OB had also had their fingers out for a couple of players who might join the club this summer.

I marts resterede 3 kampe af den indledende fase, hvorefter holdene skulle deles i mesterskabsgruppen og nedrykningsgruppen. OB var så godt som sikker på, at ende i mesterskabsgruppen.

Efter sidste kamp i marts blev holdene delt op, og OB kom selvfølgelig i mesterskabsgruppen. Første kamp her var mod FCK igen. Det blev igen et nederlag på 2-1.

After the last match in March, the teams were split up, and OB was of course in the championship group. The first match here was against FCK again. It was again a 2-1 defeat.

En helt anden ting var, at der i marts var kommet det årlige udpluk af ungdomsspillere

 

 

Målmand - Marc Steffensen
Forsvar - Andreas Jørgensen
Forsvar - Allan Antonsen
Forsvar - Gustav Lund
Forsvar - Jónas Gregersen

It went okay for OB in the championship group, where they struggled a bit to become 2nd or 3rd, however, it was in the cup tournament that they had good success. They had reached the final, which was to be played on May 9 against FCK.

 

Another thing was that in March, the annual selection of youth players had arrived

FC Midtjylland kom på besøg i første kamp i maj. De blev sendt hjem med et 3-2 nederlag, med et flot hattrick af Deedson. 

FC Midtjylland came to visit in the first match in May. They were sent home with a 3-2 defeat, with a great hat-trick by Deedson.

| xG 1.88 vs 1.72 | Result: 3-2 | Possession 49/51 |

 

En kæmpe kamp stod OB i vente. En af de største kamp i de senere år, ja sidste gang de stod her var i 2022 mod FC Midtjylland. Den gang tabte man pokalfinalen. Nu stod FCK på plakaten på “neutral” grund i Parken. En rimelig pæn flok OB-fans havde taget turen, nemlig hele 17.756 tilskuere heppede på OB. 

 

Det var en nervøs start for begge hold, og ikke før tillægstiden i første halvleg blev der scoret. FCK blev tildelt et relativt billigt straffespark, som Goncalves omsatte til mål. En våd klud i ansigtet lige før halvlegspausen.

 

OB kom bedst ud af anden halvleg og på flot opspil i højre side, lagde Köhler den videre til Al Hajj, der scorede til 1-1.

 

Tiden gik og klokken slog. Der skete ikke meget, eller begge hold var påpasselige. Dog 10 minutter før slutfløjtet blev der begået et straffespark. Hvem andre end den indskiftede Nicolai Jørgensen skulle dog sparke det. Det gjorde han og omsatte det til stillingen 1-2 til OB. En tak for tilliden til manageren fra den nu tidligere FCK'er.

 

Der blev fløjtet af, og OB kunne løfte og fejre sin første pokal i 17 år.

 

 

A big game was waiting for OB. One of the biggest games in recent years, the last time they were here was in 2022 against FC Midtjylland. Back then they lost the cup final. Now FCK was on the billboard on "neutral" ground in Parken. A good number of OB fans had made the trip, as 17,756 spectators cheered on OB.

 

It was a nervous start for both teams, and it wasn't until overtime in the first half that a goal was scored. FCK were awarded a relatively cheap penalty, which Goncalves converted into a goal. A wet rag to the face just before halftime.

 

OB came out better in the second half and after a nice play on the right side, Köhler passed to Al Hajj who scored to make it 1-1.

 

Time passed and the clock struck. Not much happened and both teams were on their guard. However, 10 minutes before the final whistle, a penalty was awarded. Who else but substitute Nicolai Jørgensen would take it. He did so and converted to make the score 1-2 for OB. A thank you from the former FCK player for the trust in the coach.

 

The final whistle blew and OB lifted the trophy for the first time in 17 years.

| xG 1.16 vs 1.37 | Result: 1-2 | Possession 52/48 |

 

Efter pokalsejren var der ikke meget at spille om i ligaen. FCK havde vundet mesterskabet, OB havde kvalificeret sig til europæisk deltagelse, De sidste 5 kampe var intet at råbe hurra for, og det virkede til at spillerne stort set var gået på sommerferie. Det blev til 3 nederlag og to uafgjorte i de sidste 5.

After winning the cup there wasn't much to play for in the league. FCK had won the championship, OB had qualified for Europe, the last 5 games were nothing to shout about, and it seemed like the players had basically gone on summer vacation. There were 3 losses and two draws in the last 5 games.

Transfers & pre-season 2024/25
 

Transfers

Danish

English

Efter det man godt kunne tillade sig at kalde en meget god sæson, hvor man vandt pokalturneringen og sluttede på en samlet tredjeplads, var det nu blevet sommerferie og tid til transfers og pre-season.

 

Sommeren bød på lidt afgange og lidt tilgange. Et par stykker kom til fra FCN, mens der røg en del ud. Mange af de solgte spillere havde videresalgsklausuler (vsk) i håb om, at de i fremtiden blev solgt endnu dyrere. Alberto havde fået prædikatet som “Den nye Fernando Morientes”.

 

Holdet måtte også sige farvel til Bashkim Kadrii, der søgte nye græsgange i Saudi Arabien, et land som han også tidligere havde spillet i, da han i 2019/20 spillede 14 kampe for Al-Fateh. I denne omgang fra 2020-2024 blev det til yderligere 91 kampe for OB med 26 mål til følge. I alt havde han nået 269 kampe og 68 mål for OB.

 

Alen Mustafic blev for øvrigt skadet i korsbåndet og kunne se sig selv ud i op til 11 måneder.

 

After what could be considered a very good season, winning the cup and finishing third overall, it was now summer vacation and time for transfers and pre-season.


The summer saw a few departures and a few arrivals. Some players came from FCN, some left. Many of the players that were sold had resale clauses (vsk) in the hope that they would be sold for even more money in the future. Alberto had been labeled as "The new Fernando Morientes".

 

The team also had to say goodbye to Bashkim Kadrii, who moved to Saudi Arabia, a country where he had previously played, as he made 14 appearances for Al-Fateh in 2019/20. This time around, from 2020-2024, he made a further 91 appearances for OB, scoring 26 goals. In total, he made 269 appearances and scored 68 goals for OB.

 

Alen Mustafic, suffered an ACL injury and could see himself out for up to 11 months.

Den stod på i alt 5 venskabskampe, og de 4 af dem kom den første uge af juli, da der allerede den 11. juli skulle spilles europæisk fodbold mod KRC Genk fra Belgien i Europa League kvalifikationen.

De 4 venskabskampe var alle mod væsentlig dårligere modstanderen, hvor den bedste var FC Helsingør fra NordicBet Ligaen.

Alle 4 kampe blev vundet. I den 5 venskabskamp ventede Juventus, udelukkende en kamp der var sat i værk pga. penge fra Tobias Slotsager salg.

It was a total of 5 friendlies, and 4 of them were played in the first week of July, as already on July 11th, European football was to be played against KRC Genk from Belgium in the Europa League qualifiers.

 

The 4 friendlies were all against significantly inferior opponents, the best of which was FC Helsingør from the NordicBet League.

 

All 4 matches were won. The 5th friendly match was against Juventus, a match that was only set up because of the money from the sale of Tobias Slotsager.

Den første gældende kamp i denne sæson, var mod KRC Genk fra Belgien i første kvalifikationsrunde til Europa League. Første kamp var I Odense, hvor 13.699 tilskuere overværede en målrig affære mellem de to hold. Al Hajj scorede to gange, men KRC Genk scorede 3 gange og vandt derfor kampen 2-3. Returopgøret var om 1 uge.

 

The first applicable match of the season was against KRC Genk from Belgium in the first qualifying round of the Europa League. The first match was in Odense, where 13,699 spectators witnessed a goal-rich affair between the two teams. Al Hajj scored twice, but KRC Genk scored 3 times and won the match 2-3. The return leg was in 1 week.

| xG 0.80 vs 1.57 | Result: 2-3 | Possession 56/44 |

 

Returopgøret kom 3 dage efter “showkampen” mod Juventus, som holdet også tabte 1-3, også rimelig forventet nederlag.

 

Mod KRC Genk blev det ikke meget bedre, og holdet fik ikke scoret i nederlaget på 3-0. 

 

Det blev derfor ikke Europa League i denne omgang, men man havde stadig muligheden for Conference League, hvor man indtrådte i 3. kvalifikationsrunde mod Zoria fra Ukraine.

 

 

The return match came 3 days after the "show match" against Juventus, which the team also lost 1-3, also a fairly expected defeat.

 

Against KRC Genk it didn't get much better, and the team failed to score in the 3-0 defeat.

 

Therefore, it was not the Europa League this time around, but they still had the opportunity for the Conference League, where they entered the 3rd qualifying round against Zoria from Ukraine.

| xG 1.43 vs 2.56 | Result: 3-0 | Possession 45/55 |

 

Første Superliga kamp var mod Viborg FF, og det blev endnu en skuffende kamp, da de to hold delte 1-1.

The first Superliga match was against Viborg FF, and it was another disappointing match as the two teams split 1-1.

| xG 2.24 vs 2.06 | Result: 1-1 | Possession 53/47 |

 

Næste kamp blev også 1-1, denne gang var det mod FCM. Et lidt mere acceptabelt resultat end sidste kamp.

The next match was also 1-1, this time against FCM. A slightly more acceptable result than the last game.

| xG 0.94 vs 2.27 | Result: 1-1 | Possession 38/62 |

 

Første kamp i august var mod AaB, hvor OB fik sin første sejr i sæsonen, da de vandt en spinkel sejr på 1-0.

The first game in August was against AaB, where OB got their first win of the season, winning a narrow 1-0 victory.

| xG 0.72 vs 1.60 | Result: 1-0 | Possession 54/46 |

 

Det var nu blevet tid til mere europæisk fodbold og Zoria kom på besøg i Odense. En lige kamp, hvor OB trak det længste strå og vandt 2-1- Returopgøret var om en uge.

It was now time for more European football and Zoria came to visit Odense. An even match, where OB drew the longest straw and won 2-1 - the return match was in a week.

| xG 2.02 vs 1.37 | Result: 2-1 | Possession 58/42 |

 

Herefter skulle holdet en tur til Randers, og forhåbentlig fortsætte den gode stime af sejre. Og det blev den også mod Randers, der hjemme mod OB tabte 3-0. Den nye spiller Mika Biereth scorede sit første mål i OB-trøjen.

After that, the team had to travel to Randers and hopefully continue the good streak of victories. And so it was against Randers, who lost 3-0 at home to OB. New player Mika Biereth scored his first goal in the OB jersey.

| xG 0.39 vs 2.14 | Result: 3-0 | Possession 38/62 |

 

Igen var det tid til Zoria, som OB skulle møde på udebane. Foran ca. 1500 tilskuere vandt OB en tæt kamp 2-3 og var dermed videre i kvalifikationen til Conference League, hvor næste modstander var FK Aqtóbe fra Kasakhstan. 

Once again, it was time for Zoria, which OB was to face away from home. In front of approx. 1500 spectators, OB won a close match 2-3 and thus advanced in the qualification for the Conference League, where the next opponent was FK Aqtóbe from Kazakhstan.

| xG 1.93 vs 3.09 | Result: 2-3 | Possession 50/50 |

 

Blot tre dage efter turen til Ukraine, skulle holdet hjemme i Odense møde AGF. Dette blev også en tæt kamp og OB snød sig til sejren i det allersidste sekund da Bekanga scorede til 2-1 i 4 minutters overtid.

Just three days after the trip to Ukraine, the team had to face AGF at home in Odense. This was also a close match and OB snatched victory in the very last second when Bekanga scored 2-1 in 4 minutes of injury time.

| xG 1.30 vs 2.02 | Result: 2-1 | Possession 59/41 |

 

Turen var nu kommet til mødet med det Kasakhstanske hold der kom på besøg i Odense og det ville de nok have ønsket, at de ikke gjorde. Mika scorede 2 mål, Manneh et enkelt og ligeså Nouck, da OB vandt hele 4-0, og var godt rustet til returopgøret i Kasakhstan.

 

The time had now come to meet the Kazakhstani team that came to visit Odense and they probably wished they hadn't. Mika scored 2 goals, Manneh a single and Nouck as well, as OB won 4-0 and were well equipped for the return match in Kazakhstan.

| xG 1.85 vs 1.04 | Result: 4-0 | Possession 59/41 |

 

OB's næste kamp var udekampen mod FCN, og om det var europæisk fodbold der stadig sad i benene, var ikke til at vide, men OB tabte hele 0-3.

OB's next match was the away match against FCN, and whether it was European football that was still in the legs was not to be known, but OB lost 0-3.

| xG 2.37 vs 2.51 | Result: 0-3 | Possession 33/67 |

 

Den 8. og sidste kamp i august var udekampen mod Aqtóbe. OB formåede ikke at score, men hjemmeholdet scorede kun én gang, og derfor var OB videre til Conference League - Ligafasen.

The 8th and final match in August was the away match against Aqtóbe. OB didn't manage to score, but the home team only scored once, and therefore OB was through to the Conference League - League Phase.

| xG 1.84 vs 1.19 | Result: 1-0 | Possession 53/47 |

 

En sponsoraftale med Faxe Kondi, betød også at holdet fik nye trøjer. De sædvanlige striber på 1. trøjen, mens 2. trøjen havde fået et mørkt look med blå og grå nuancer, der kunne minde lidt om lyn. 3. trøjen denne sæson var en lyserød en af slagsen, med lidt sort, blåt og grå linjer. Alle trøjerne lavet af Kappa.

 

A sponsorship deal with Faxe Kondi also meant that the team got new jerseys. The usual stripes on the 1st jersey, while the 2nd jersey had a dark look with blue and gray shades, reminiscent of lightning. The 3rd jersey this season was a pink one, with some black, blue and gray lines. All the shirts made by Kappa.

 

OB var spået til at ende på 9. pladsen i Superligaen, selvom holdet endte på 3. pladsen sidste sæson. Og efter 5 kampe så det da også helt anderledes ud end bookmakernes forudsigelser.

OB was predicted to finish 9th in the Superliga, even though the team finished 3rd last season. And after 5 games, things looked completely different from the bookmakers' predictions.

Transfers january 2025
 

Danish

 English

Der blev hentet et par stykker ind, mens der blev sagt farvel til i hvert fald en profil. Alasana Mannehs kontrakt udløb til sommer, og han ville ikke forlænge. Derfor blev der handlet hurtigt, og OB scorede hvad de kunne, da de solgte Manneh for 31 mio. kr. til Espanyol. Marc Muniesa blev solgt til Emirates for 750.000 kr., primært pga. manglende spilletid, da han kun havde fået 6 kampe. Bjørn Paulsen røg også til Emirates for 610.000 kr., da han også kun havde spillet en håndfuld kampe. Paulsen nåede 42 kampe for striwerne, Muniesa 6 kampe og Manneh 80 kampe.

 

For pengene hentede OB, den tidligere Real Madrid B holds spiller, Rodrigo Farofa fra Vålerenga, Andorra spilleren Marc Bombardó, som blev lejet tilbage til Andorra og det argentinske talent Roberto Pizzo fra Colón, som han også samtidigt blevet lejet tilbage til.

A couple of players were brought in, while at least one profile was said goodbye to. Alasana Manneh's contract expired this summer, and he did not want to extend. Therefore, they acted quickly and OB scored what they could when they sold Manneh for DKK 31 million to Espanyol. Marc Muniesa was sold to Emirates for DKK 750,000, mainly due to lack of playing time, as he had only made 6 appearances. Bjørn Paulsen also went to Emirates for DKK 610,000, as he had also only played a handful of games. Paulsen made 42 appearances for the Stripes, Muniesa 6 appearances and Manneh 80 appearances.

 

For the money, OB picked up former Real Madrid B team player Rodrigo Farofa from Vålerenga, Andorra player Marc Bombardó, who was loaned back to Andorra and Argentinian talent Roberto Pizzo from Colón, who he was also loaned back to.

Og for første nogensinde i OB's historie kunne de vinde to i træk.

Målmand - Daniel Ipsen

Forsvar - Mikkel Rasmussen

Midtbane - Michael Poulsen

Midtbane - Ole Poulsen

 

OB's Pedro Soma var udnævnt som det 27. største talent i verden under 19.

Efter sæsonen fik spillerene ferie, mens manageren i løbet af sæsonen havde haft travlt med at lede efter gode billige handler. Jofré Freixanet og Osvaldo López var de to første der kom til Odense for henholdsvis 1,05 mio. kr. og 1 mio. kr. 

 

Da kalenderen rundende 1. juli og transfervinduet åbnede, kom der 4 spillede ind. Fælles for dem alle var, at de alle var blevet hentet på fri transfer fra FC Nordsjælland. Mest nævneværdig var nok Lasso Coulibaly, mens en gammel kending Kaare Barslund nu var at finde permanent hos OB.

 

Ud røg en lang række spillere. Dette indbefattede spillere som Lasse Andersen, Samuel Juel, Nikolaj Juul-Sandberg, Magnus Hvidtfeld Andersen, men også mere prominente navne forlod OB. Det var Ricardo van Rhijn der blev solgt til Excelsior i Holland, Nenass blev solgt til Vikingur R. Dog var det største salg Franco Tongya, der såmænd også kunne ende med at bliver OB's største salg nogensinde. Han blev solgt for 30 mio. kr. up front, med potientielle bonusser, der kunne få transferen til at løbe op i 100 mio. kr. og udover dette en videresalgsklausul på 40%. Klubben der havde valgt at købe Tongya, var ingen ringere end Valencia C.F.

 

 

 

After the season, the players got a vacation, while the manager had been busy looking for good cheap deals during the season. Jofré Freixanet and Osvaldo López were the first two to arrive in Odense for DKK 1.05 million and DKK 1 million respectively.

 

When the calendar turned July 1 and the transfer window opened, 4 players came in. Common to all of them was that they had all been brought in on a free transfer from FC Nordsjælland. Most notable was probably Lasso Coulibaly, while an old acquaintance Kaare Barslund was now permanently at OB.

 

Out went a large number of players. This included players like Lasse Andersen, Samuel Juel, Nikolaj Juul-Sandberg, Magnus Hvidtfeld Andersen, but also more prominent names left OB. Ricardo van Rhijn was sold to Excelsior in the Netherlands, Nenass was sold to Vikingur R. However, the biggest sale was Franco Tongya, who could also end up being OB's biggest sale ever. He was sold for DKK 30 million up front, with potential bonuses that could make the transfer amount to DKK 100 million and in addition to this a resale clause of 40%. The club that had chosen to buy Tongya was none other than Valencia C.F.
