    AIK End Alm's Reign

    After 3 seasons without a trophy to speak of, AIK's Chairman Johan Stromberg decided it was time for a change at the helm. Andreas Alm was sacked after just under 3 years with the club, the former player who scored 20 goals in his time with the club, failed to bring similar success at a managerial level despite a very good win ratio.

    Gnaget fans will now be pondering who may take over at Friends Arena knowing they are in desperate need for some success. Alm left a statement when leaving the ground this afternoon stating, "It was a pleasure to manage a club that were very important to me. I know I did not provide the success maybe fans & the board wanted but under the circumstances I thought I did well"

    Alm went on to say "Obviously I am disappointed and I feel that this upcoming season would of been the one but Mr. Str?mberg has made his choice and I have to accept it. I now move on and look to get away from for football for a while, although I will have a keen eye on this place & wish my successor all the best, because this club deserves it."

    Rumors are rife at the moment of who will take over at AIK but we expect some movement in the coming days and will be keenly following this story as it unfolds.

    Gnaget show discontent at Unproven Manager's Appointment

    4 Days after the dismissal of Andreas Alm the AIK Board unveiled the new man they have chosen to take the club forward. Luke Ryan joins as a virtual unknown, the 26 year old, who has 7 years experience on the Sunday League scene as player signs at his first ever professional team. After sustaining injury in 2009, which inevitably ended Ryan's career, he ventured into management where he had some success earning a local trophy in Leicester.

    However he has now been thrown into a big challenge, beyond anything he would be used to, controlling and running an aspiring European force. Swedish football may not be ranked highly in terms of quality but fans across the country will now be watching with keen eyes due to the fact that not many English managers have had success here.

    Roy Hodgson being the most notable man to take control on Swedish soil, where he enjoyed League title success with Halmstads and an amazing 5 titles with Malmo FF, which also included a huge victory over Inter Milan in the 1990 European Cup competition.

    Fans have apparently questioned the decision to ignore candidates with more lucrative CV's but the board defended their actions and called for backing from the fans. Johan Stromberg stated "We understand the fans may not be comfortable with this decision but it is not one we have taken lightly."

    "The board, staff and myself had a number of meetings with Luke and we are delighted to appoint him our new manager. There is talent here and we have a solid base for him to work with, we want good attacking football and a keen intent to build through youth & Mr. Ryan ticks all the boxes in relation to our expectations."

    Luke Ryan addressed media assuring fans he would not let them down. "I understand where I have come from, people will not know who I am or my methods but that gives me an edge. I will work as hard as I can to make sure this club stands tall with silverware hoisted high over our heads once more."


    "This is not going to be an overnight job, fans need to be patient and know we are working as hard as possible to achieve our goals. We have some good players here and the youth is very encouraging. I am looking forward to getting started!.

    Well it has been interesting few days at Friends Arena, in time we will tell if this appointment flops or provides the shock of the century. We ask you to follow us throughout the season as this story unfolds.

    March 2013

    Well after taking my first job in football, it was clear that I was up against it from the start. I go into this opening month hoping to take a fledgling Scandinavian side and turn them into a contender on the European stage.

    Realistically the club does not have a lot of money to work but the youth prospects should help me build a team to help challenge for silverware. We are looking to challenge for the league title and then see where we stand as other challenges appear.

    Anyway this month it was a mixture of fixtures, the squad will be challenged with a number of Pre-Season Friendlies plus the beginning of the Swedish Cup and Allsvenskan season. Here are the fixtures for this opening month:-

    (PSF) AIK Under-21's [H] - The Friendlies begin as we test the squad's core
    (PSF) FC Svendborg [A] - We then travel to Denmark to face one of its smaller clubs
    (PSF) HB Koge [A] - Still in Denmark we face a First Division side looking for a win
    (SCGS) BK Olympic [A] - The Swedish Cup kicks off with our first group stage match
    (PSF) Nordvest FC [A] - We then resume our tour of Denmark facing another Danish minnow
    (SCGS) Jonkopings Sodra [H] - Our first home domestic clash pits us against a tricky side
    (PSF) Hvidovre [A] - The final pre-season friendly of the campaign
    (SA) IFK Goteborg [A] - The Allsvenskan kicks off as we face one of our fiercest rivals on opening day

    Pre-Season Friendly
    vs. AIK Under-21's (Won 5-1)

    The senior team produced a fine display to overcome the young up and comers at Friends Arena. Celso Borges proved to be the man of the match bagging 2 goals and 2 assists.

    Kennedy Igboananike, Niclas Eliasson & Robin Quaison rounded off the scoring. Mikael Damberg scored a consolation effort with the score at 3-0.

    Pre-Season Friendly
    vs. FC Svendborg (Won 3-2)

    AIK managed to edge a tight affair in the opening game from their tour of Denmark this pre-season. Robin Quaison & Niklas Backman had given the away side a 2 goal cushion before the break but a goal just after the break from Casper Kruse made things a little more interesting.

    Celso Borges went on to score the clincher just after the hour but Svendborg would go onto score 3 minutes from time through Magnus Bech, ultimately though the Swedish side held out for victory.

    Pre-Season Friendly
    vs. HB Koge (Won 2-0)

    AIK ran out comfortable winners in Denmark bagging 2 goals in the final 15 minutes against HB Koge. The home sides resilience finally broke as Martin Lorentzson & Kennedy Igboananike both scored the goals for the away side.

    Swedish Cup Group 4
    vs. BK Olympic (Won 4-0)

    It was promising start to the Swedish Cup campaign as Luke Ryan's side made light work of non league BK Olympic. Celso Borges starred bagging an impressive hat-trick before Kennedy Igboananike put away a well placed shot to round off the result.

    Pre-Season Friendly
    vs. Nordvest FC (Won 8-1)

    Danish First Division side Nordvest had no answer to the attacking threat posed by their Swedish opponents. Celso Borges continued his fine scoring form with 4 goals for his team, second behind him was Nabil Bahoui who bagged himself an impressive hat-trick.

    Niclas Eliasson rounded off the scoring for AIK after Thomas Jensen scored for the home side with the scores at 5-0.

    Swedish Cup Group 4
    vs. Jonkopings Sodra (Won 2-0)

    AIK continued their fine winning form with a comfortable win at Friends Arena in the Swedish Cup. Goals either side of half time from Celso Borges & Kennedy Igboananike ensured that Gnaget have a solid chance of qualifying for the knockout stages.

    Pre-Season Friendly
    vs. Hvidovre (Won 5-0)

    The tour of Denmark ended in empathic style for Ryan's AIK side as they dominated against Hvidovre. Celso Borges & Kennedy Igboananike both helped themselves to a brace whilst youngster Robin Quaison did himself no harm bagging a goal in the win.

    Swedish Cup Group 4
    vs. Mjallby (Lost 2-1)

    Frustration was clear to be seen as Luke Ryan watched his side fail to qualify for the knockout stages of the Swedish Cup. Mjallby leapfrogged into the top spot of the group after coming from behind to win at Friends Arena.

    Niclas Eliasson had given the home side the lead just after half time but goals in the final 15 minutes from Patrik Ingelsten & Anton Dahlstrom condemned AIK to their first defeat under their new English manager.

    Ryan was especially annoyed before the game as 3 of his key players were missing from the starting line up. Celso Borges, Ibrahim Moro & Ebenezer Ofori were all away on international duty and unavailable for selection.

    Swedish Allsvenskan
    vs. IFK Goteborg (Won 4-0)

    AIK sent their fans home with beaming smiles as they destroyed their fierce rivals Goteborg on the opening day of the season. Robin Quaison produced a sensational display pulling the strings for his side, including scoring 2 goals.

    Nabil Bahoui and Kennedy Igboananike added to the scoreline late in the second half. It was a fine display and the perfect way to open the season.

    It has been an encouraging month of results for the team. The pre-season went well as we built some forward momentum and took a winning mentality into the Swedish Cup games that we won, ultimately we were pipped on the final day due to the useless international friendlies but now we can focus on the league.

    It was a tremendous start to the Allsvenskan campaign, to beat one of your fierce rivals so convincingly is a big statement. Plus some of our key players showed some top displays, especially the likes of Celso Borges & Robin Quaison.

    It's early days but if we keep up the same level of performance, we could be in for a successful season.
