    European Daydreams!
    In recent weeks fans still can not wrap their heads around the fact that Middelfart have a chance of qualifying for the European Cup. In an unbelievable progression, the Danish minnows have leapt through the leagues and now are competing on 3 fronts; the Superliga, Danish Cup and the Euro Cup.

    Let's see how far we can take this little club!

    Well this is good! Our first ever taste of European football sees us take on Swiss side Vaduz. We scored all the goals including theirs. A fantastic performance that sets up a good chance in the second leg for us to progress.

    Our first game in the new season of the Superliga. A poor show really where we should have put the game to bed. Just not clinical enough and we settle for a share of the points.

    Yes lads!! A solid performance sees us go through to the next round! 5-2 on aggregate and we looked good value for it!

    Round 3 is drawn and we get Israeli side Hapoel Be'er-Sheva. I don't know what to expect really but I think that we will have a chance if we continue to control the game as we have been.

    Back to the league for our local derby against OB. Sadly we get nothing and again we should have made our chances count. Our new striker, Mads Thychosen is not firing yet and I am starting to worry that this may turn into a drought.

    We bloody love European football! Another dominant performance and it seems to me the lads have not woken up in the league yet, at least they are performing in Europe! Andersen scored a worldie again and both our new signings scored. Finally Thychosen is off the mark!

    Monthly Review: In the years ahead, this month will stand out as a great one for me. We have outperformed our competitors in Europe and I am confident of reaching the knockout phases. A slow start in the league but no defeats yet.

    Player of the Month: Surprisingly the stand out performer was Kevin Vermeulen. He controlled the games well from AMC and chipped in with a couple of assists and a goal!

    Agonising August
    I would not normally be so negative at the start of a month but the sheer amount of fixtures this month calls for us to split the month's reports. This is the first half featuring European games and Danish Superliga games too.
    We have 9 games this month, 9! Let's crack on then.

    Unreal! We beat them for the first time ever last season, this time we show up to Telia Parken and take a big ol' shit in the middle of their field. Thychosen is quickly becoming a fan favourite and there is no wonder why. A goal against the biggest team in the country sees us take all 3 points after some seriously good defending.

    That's right sports fans, we have drawn Shalke. In a matter of weeks we will be playing at the famous VELTINS-Arena and I hope the 20 odd faithful away fans, the Ultrafarts, will be as raucous as possible in the 62,271 capacity stadium.

    Back in action in the league, we face Randers who gave us a tough time last year. I think we drew both games and it was more of the same. Vermeulen scored a contender for goal of the season to get us started before we conceded in the 2nd half.

    Wow, what a performance for Thychosen! A hat-trick on top of Vossebelt's first goal for the club sees us edge out Esbjerg in this goal fest. Fans have taken to calling Mads Dohr 'Thychosen One'.

    Mid month review: Undefeated and through to the next round of the Euro cup, whilst beating Copenhagen in their own back yard. A great month so far.

    Player of the month (so far): Has to be Thychosen One! 4 goals in as many games!

    I can't remember when we last had so many games in a month, it must be a first. The first half went near perfect, we can only hope it carries on for the remainder.

    With one eye on the Schalke game, we field a second team and play 4-4-2 instead of our preferred 4-2-3-1 this season. Rather surprisingly Boesen scores a double. He is not really good enough for this level and has been found out a bit but I like the guy. I like him even more now!

    This was the biggest game of my career. We face German giants. This is our first real test to compare how we are progressing as a club against a team that I have actually heard of and know a bit about. Yes we have Copenhagen but this is different. It looked like we were going to be beaten heavily after an early penalty was given against us, then we only bloody went on to score twice and take the lead! As I was changing tactics to contan, Fabian Reese scored for them and heartbreak was again on the cards as Max Meyer scored a late winner. At least we take away goals into the next leg.

    We held on for a point even after Hojer got an early bath.

    Oh football is a cruel, cruel game! Not only did we take the lead twice, which would have seen us through to the next round, but we looked good value for it too! Simply the quality of Schalke shone through. Konoplyanka was linked with Liverpool all those years ago and former Spurs player Bentaleb scored their late, late goal. A brave display from the lads though!

    The second team take to the field and the fatigue in the squad is clear. Boesen scores yet another goal and it looked like we were going to get those expected 3 points until their star man Rubin ruined our parade and stole the points.

    The final game of this loooonggg month sees us take on First Division side Horsens. Thychosen one takes us to the next round thanks to his opening goal before more pressure sees us grab a second through and own goal.

    Monthly Review: Well this was lovely, the long month has meant we have had one of the most successful spells in the clubs history. Doing well in the league, falling just short against huge favourites Schalke and progressing into the next round of the Cup.

    Player of the Month: No need to pick one. Thychosen One is killing it!

    Super September?
    Just before the transfer window shut we were able to bring in 2 more players to provide some cover for the first team. First up is Jakup Thomsen who has been on my radar for a while but we have not had the money to pay him.

    He has the finishing and physical stats to worry most defences and we hope he does exactly that!

    Secondly, Jimmi Syppil comes in to add depth and also to potentially stake a claim for the future.

    Well, well, well. We come up against our newly made rivals in Copenhagen. The rivalry has been growing over the past few years but after the dramatic Cup Final last year, there is even more hostility from the Ultrafarts. A home fixture has made the headlines for weeks and the TV cameras are here for the game so let's do this.

    This is what football is all about. I know we beat them last year but they have yet again strengthened their squad and look unreal this year. Johansson bagged their opener and I thought we were going to get pummelled but to my delight, the boys rallied around and were very competitive. Solid defence and a slight tactical change meant that Vermeulen scored a dramatic late goal to get us a credible draw.

    Kasper Junker is in contention for player of the year and he got them off the mark in the second half. We looked condemned to a defeat after Hvidt scored 10 minutes later and then the magic happened. A change to 4-4-2 and some key substitutes saw as score twice in 3 minutes to pull level! Definitely a point saved here as we probably deserved to lose.

    Chalk and cheese this game. Thyschosen scored 2 lovely goals and Sorensen chipped in a penalty. Unfortunate to concede late on but 3 points was needed and we got them.

    Monthly review: Another undefeated month, sadly too many draws though. Only 5 points from a possible 9 sees us losing ground on both Copenhagen and Brondby. We need a good streak to stabilise our position for the season.

    We only need a few wins to get to 2nd so I hope we can do that before the winter break. Only 3 games in December so let's go for 9 points!

    Player of the Month: Victor Anker was signed as a back up goalkeeper but his performances this year have led to him being the first choice. Radza has not been anywhere near as good this year and Anker is training really well. He is my player of the month due to his attitude and work at training and performing in games.

    An eventful game which saw a lot of fouls in this hotly contested fixture. With only a few points separating the two teams this was seen as a 6 pointer. A win means we open the gap and close down Brondby. Rotational players Sorensen and Simonsen pitched in and we looked good for it.

    AAB have always been a team that we tend to struggle against. This time around we looked dominant and saw the game out in classy fashion. Thychosen gets yet another goal and I am sure he has already scored more goals than our leading goalscorer last season Leon Nzoko.

    Monthly Review: A perfect month sees us skip into 2nd place! Unreal considering we have been underestimated to finish in the relegation zone! They may as well hand over the trophy to Copenhagen now, with an 11 point lead it is going to take a miracle for us to win against a team that has dropped points on just 5 occasions.

    Middelfart boss to England?
    Although the winter may be cold and dark, the latest news from England is sure to get some Middelfart fans warmed up. Reports from various clubs in the Sky Bet Championship have reportedly contacted van der Westhuizen to invite him for an interview.

    On a weekly basis there seems to be a new club being linked with the popular manager, who has achieved what many have said is unthinkable given the size and stature of Middelfart.

    Hull, Swansea, QPR, Birmingham and Wigan have all offered van der Westhuizen an interview or have been linked with the Middelfart boss. In the coming weeks there are many that will be keeping an eye on the situation as speculation mounts given that van der Westhuizen's contract expires at the end of the season.

    The question is being asked already, is it time for the promising manager to move on or is there more success to be had at Middelfart?

    February/March
    Yes! Winter is over and we have football back! This winter was tough, I am not going to lie. The last time I had to reject so many opportunities was when I was on Tinder in Middelfart. My reputation is growing in England and Championship clubs are desperate to have me move. As appealing as a huge club, with near unlimited resources and fans, it will not replace what I have built here. If I jump ship now I will always regret not finding out if I could dethrone Copenhagen. So I signed a new 2 year deal, got facilities upgraded again and got some more money in the transfer and wage kitty. Ready for the second stage of the season!

    After a mixed training camp in Algarve, we returned to one friendly which we drew against feeder club Naesby. Our first league game was up against bottom side Viborg.

    A rematch of last year's cup final. Sadly we were blown away, the quality was just too much. Cornelius has already scored 33 goals with today's included. Between him and Djurdjevic they are smashing it and we are out of the cup. Sad times really.

    Monthly review: A disappointing month really as we were slow out the blocks. That momentum came to a head in the last game where we were run ragged and looked awful. Hoping to get out of this funk so that we can secure a better finish than last season.

    Player of the Month: It is not often a player moans about their playing time and when given the opportunity, they thrive. Joakim Maehle has done just that. Probably our most consistent performer this month and by adding a couple of goals, he looks to have repaid my faith in him.

    UP. THE. FARTS!!

    When (not if!) you manage it, what then? Will you stick around and aim for European progression, or will you move on? And if you move on... will you be changing the thread title!?!?!

    Not really thought that far ahead if I am honest. Depending how long it takes to get the title I suppose. Perhaps look for a Euro Cup win. I reckon I will just end the story there and if I move clubs within the save, I will start a new thread if people want to follow.

    April
    With just a few games in the Champions Group to decide the final 6 positions in the league. Copenhagen have all but wrapped up the title and we are desperate to secure second so that we can mount a more serious challenge next season.

    He was seen as a liability but Thomsen has stepped up lately. He scores our first of two first half goals and we see the game out to secure the 3 points.

    Our easiest game in comparison with the rest, Thomsen carries on his goal scoring form and has taken the shine off Thychosen as he has struggled for another goal. 2 goals is enough to secure the win.

    The run in
    Only a few more games left to secure 2nd place and start working on the next season. It has been yet another incredible season, we have drawn a few more games than last year but our points tally is set to be a record high although we have not won as many games. Let's get this season done with so that we can hunt down Copenhagen.

    The next game sees us take on Lyngby and we sorted the result by half time. A dominant 2-0 lead was all we needed and we saw the remainder of the game out in a very professional fashion, never looking like we were going to concede.

    With one eye on the summer holidays, second place confirmed and the shite weather to boot, we didn't really look like turning Brondby over in this fixture. It wasn't an awful performance but we looked ok for the most part.

    In other news, our second team has won their first trophy! It is proof that our depth is improving in quality and the improvements to the facilities is paying off.

    It is games like this that make me hopeful of a manager of the year award. I brought on Jake Bruce as a super sub, changed our instructios to play wider and look to whip crosses and it worked. A late winner sees us steal 3 points.

    I can't explain these games. We change very little in terms of tactics and we blow away Lyngby with 4 goals after going behind. Thomsen adds to his tally and I hope has convinced the board that he is worth the money we spent on him.

    Last game of the season sees us up against Copenhagen yet again. Our main competitors just have so much quality that we struggled to stay competitive. Djurdjevic scores against us yet again. We will need to shut him down better next year.

    Monthly Review: By this stage of the season it is easy to lose focus, we were competitive but eased off a bit seeing as we cemented our position already and there was little else to play for. A good month indeed and we were in the zone for most of the time. Andersen was in the zone and the youngster made the Team of the Month. He is therefore my Player of the Month.

    End of Season Review: Often my favourite time of the season as we overachieve. No difference on this occasion as we start with the end of season awards. Alexander Molberg is a real crowd favourite and with his third consecutive Player of the Season award, he has become a leader amongst men. My vote would have gone to Thychosen, but it's not all about me!

    Summer

    The seasons here seem to take longer than usual. With the winter months to reflect, the long cold nights make it feel like an eternity. When we then resume play it seems like the season is crammed and by the end of June we only have 4-5 weeks to get a pre-season in, sort out transfers and get the club ready.

    I decided to take some personal time and travel to Copenhagen. The city that has been so dominant in the football world.

    As I wander through the crowded streets and the busy market, I just keep thinking "How do we compete with this?". Compare all aspects of Copenhagen to Middelfart and we are the equivalent of a mouse to an elephant. The only way we can challenge them is by beating them on the day and taking as many points from the other games as possible, we will need something like an unbeaten season or something. A tough ask.

    Stay with me on this report but as so much has changed, I wanted to take a breath and show you all where the squad is. There have been some changes.

    17 changes to be exact. The most notable perhaps are our 2 long time servants Casper Vaerum and Peter Jul Nielsen. The rest of the transfers were purely not good enough or did not deserve their wages. I would very much like to stay within my wage budget this season. Tough but not unrealistic.

    So to get everyone up to speed I present you the first team.

    Casper Radza will take the number 1 jersey and will become Middelfart's leading appearance holder. Dannevang was free, cheap and will be a solid back up.

    Good depth in this position as we bring in Vermijl to replace last year's loanee Lind. Vermijl looks quality and will be our first choice. As a back up we also have Maehle, who has been solid and can also play further up as a winger.

    We have refined and boosted the centre of the defence. We still have Kabongo and Christensen from last year but we also add on a permanent bases Alexander Molberg. Our 3 time player of the year has signed along with a Dutch beast called Daryl Werker. The strength and quality is better than last year so hopefully we can build from the back.

    At left back we have 2 options. Hojer was so good for us last year he kept Nielsen out of this position. Zanotti has been out on loan the last few seasons but I want to give him a go here this year.

    Our holding players this year will be the formidable African pairing of Rutikanga and Tanor. They join the Danish Hansen to make for stiff competition for that holding, playmaking role.

    Another 3 players to fight for their places. The quality is here as well, with two Dutchmen leading the way and hopefully showing our promising youngster Andersen how to develop to the next step. The new signing here was Mitchell Paulissen who arrives on a free. He has all the stats and versatility to be a real problem for the opposition so let's hope he delivers.

    Perhaps our strongest position. With Thychosen looking to build on a great first season we also draft in former Manchester City, Lorenzo Gonzalez who looks just great. He can play as an attacking player on the left and right wing as well as striker if needed.

    The trio competition continues for the top as we present two new signings to go with Thomsen from last year. Clive Watt signs on a free and looks to be really ready for the season. The Irishman will hopefully bring us luck and goals. Per Lanng is our final striker, the youngster will be mainly rotational but he has time on his side as well as potential.

    Backroom
    We have the same staff in the background of the club and will be focusing our energy on getting the most out of our players this season.

    To add a bit more fuel to the flame, we have just been drawn for our first Champion's League game.

    With hardly a moment's respite, we gather our kit to prepare for the opening game of the season. We want to see how many points we can pick up to start strongly but I feel like the team needs more time to gel.

    Last season saw Middelfart in Europe for the first time. This year we are in the Champions League for the first time. Up against Russian juggernauts CSKA. All the way to Russia to get beaten is what most thought. Gonzalez has other plans. After going behind we set up a bit more attacking and the pressure paid off. We have an away goal to play with and looked good value for it!

    We were not meant to win this one at all. We have not looked good so far apart from CSKA and that game seemed to spur us on. An early penalty from Hansen set the tone before they grab a goal before half time. Hansen then smashed in a 22 yard screamer for the win!

    Champions League Special

    Welcome to this very special presentation of the Champions League qualifier featuring Middelfart and CSKA Moscow.
    Somehow Middelfart actually have a chance to progress here grabbing a vital away goal in the 1-1 draw in the first leg. The return fixture has created an excitement that has never been seen before in Middelfart. The little town is making preparations to host the thousands of travelling Russian fans.

    So here we are at the Vejle Stadion. Usually we would be at Middelfart's own stadium but due to seating regulations not being met we take the short trip to Vejle to fit in this bumper 7,567 strong crowd. The weather conditions are as good as they get in Denmark, quite warm at 23 degrees with a strong breeze.

    Team news to bring you, not that many changes for either side apart from Mads Dohr Thyschosen coming into the team after a long injury lay off. The inclusion of last year's top scorer for Middelfart will give the home fans a big boost.

    The teams are out, all the formalities are done and we are ready for kick off!

    4 Minutes: Early on and Middelfart are pressing their advantage. They seem to have caught CSKA off guard with a strong, direct start. The ball is wide with Andersen who whips in a cross, the ball just misses over the head of Thychosen but falls to GONNZAALLLEZZ!!! OH WHAT A GOAL! He has scored against CSKA yet again! He catches the ball on the volley and hits it right into the roof of the goal. A fairytale start for Middelfart!
    34 Minutes: Dangerous counter attack here by CSKA, Cafu has been the stand out player for them so far and here he is driving through the heart of midfield, cutting inside and out. Shoots! Saved by Radza but not held and GOAALLL!! Cafu gets the rebound! He wheels away celebrating and the scores are level!
    45 Minutes: That is it for the first half and the pressure is building. The next goal will be vital in this game, whoever scores it will have an advantage.

    54 Minutes: A nervous opening to this second half. The referee blows his whistle. A hard challenge there by CSKA's Ramos who goes into the book here.
    57 Minutes: Middelfart on the move again here on the right wing, the crosses have been flying in all day. Another looping effort towards the back post and it's THYCHOSEN!! HE SCORES!! Back after a long spell on the sidelines through injury, has he just become a hero for Middelfart!?
    61 Minutes: Now behind, CSKA seem to have woken up. The passing tempo has gotten quicker and they are pressing higher up. Cafu is on the ball yet again, cuts back inside to dink over a lovely little pass to find Olanare. He has time here and is all alone! GOALL!!!! This game is blown wide open! A dramatic equaliser means that CSKA will go through as things stand! Heartbreak for Middelfart who got so close last year too!
    68 Minutes: This is just impressive, Middelfart just don't know when they are beat. The last 5 minutes have seen them up their game as their manager has been furiously shouting instructions from the sidelines. They have been working harder. Tanor steals the ball in midfield and passes it up to Thychosen, Andersen is bombing forward on the counter attack. If Thychosen can find him... He does! Andersen takes a touch and hits it! OH MY WORD! What a goal!! He must have hit that from 30 yards out! Middelfart lead CSKA!

    FULL TIME! They have only gone and done it! After parking the bus for the last 20 minutes, little club Middelfart have yet again overcome the odds and progressed to the next round! Sensational stuff!

    We go through to the studio for the draw for the next round. None of these fixtures are appealing for Middelfart as the other teams in the draw are mammoths in comparison. They will hope for a good draw to attract as many fans as possible and hopefully put on a show.

    August
    This month may well be the longest in our history of the club. With so many fixtures, we will be lucky to get a good run of form. Of course we have got a big tie against Liverpool in the Champions League.

    Copenhagen have started off undefeated this year, shock. This was our chance to peg them back a bit. We looked good value for the draw until Hansen decides to whip out one of his worldies. A cracking effort gives us the lead and the win!

    A victory was never likely. The best case scenario would be a goalless draw and then maybe steal one away from home. There was just too big of a gulf in class. Coutinho on his own earns more than 4 times my entire squad budget a week. With the players they have it was just a matter of time, we held out until the second half but then the chances turned into goals.

    The dream is over but it has been phenomenal. All the 119 travelling fans packed their flares and singing voices. The result mirrored that of the first leg and we kept it level in the first half. With the like of Mane on form it was hard to keep it that way let alone mount a serious attack. A lovely trip and one I will remember!

    Our final game of a very long month sees us take on Sonderjyske and the big Rudy Gestede. It took a long time to break through but what a way to do it! Paulissen scores his first for the club via a thunderous freekick. Thychosen is slowly getting back into the groove of things as he picks up a goal after his return from injury. A solid win that sees us move further up the table!

    Monthly Review: Perhaps one of the biggest months the club has had! We are the sole representative of Denmark in European competition and have done well in the league. The extra money is a massive bonus too! Copenhagen have dropped points this month and are still in touching distance! We may have a chance this year!

    The season is well and truly underway and we look all right actually. Not as dominant in terms of goal scoring, however we have secured the points. This month is all about the Europa League group stage and maintaining the pace in the league set by Copenhagen.

    There are stadiums you dream of playing in, and for me Ajax is up there. The crowd was amazing, the whole 60,000 of them. We set up to contain them and hit on the counter but their quality was far too much. 2 goals ahead I thought we were in with a shout when substitute Thomsen scored an away goal for us. If we could just hold on we may get another goal for a point. It was not to be as they turned it on again to score another 2. 4-1 is a tough scoreline considering but they did dominate the game so it is fair.

    Due to seating regulations we host Jrasnodar at OB's home stadium. Paulissen produced an absolute worldie to get us the only goal of the game. A sweet strike on the half volley into the top corner saw the fans explode with joy and excitement. 3 points in the group and our very first European group stage win!

    Monthly Review:
    Many would be thrilled with our progress but I am unconvinced. We should be higher up and finishing games better. We already have 5 draws to match the wins but the dropped points concerns me the most. As for Europe, I am loving the challenge but we won't expect any fireworks.

    Football can be such a cruel game! We were huge underdogs. We held them, contained, defended well. Then a moment of brilliance. Kabongo hits a long ball from the heart of defence, over the strikers. I mishit clearance falls to Paulissen who blasts it into the goal! WE ARE AHEAD!! That lasted for all of 2 minutes, as in the very next attack Wollscheid scores off a corner. Unfortunately away goals don't count for much but we get the point! A long shot at qualification, but not an easy task!

    A real Jekyll and Hyde performance from Rutikanga. He pops in a 30 yard screamer for his first ever Middelfart goal and the very next minute he picks up his second yellow! We set up to defend but actually managed another goal through the prolific Jensen! Very nice indeed!

    Monthly Review:
    A very strong month indeed. This will be a defining moment in the season. With Copenhagen dropping points and us going unbeaten in the league, we have won all 4 games taking the maximum points. We are level with Copenhagen and will need to maintain this high performance to match them all season.

    Middelfart boss to England?
    In the past couple of years the stock of manager van der Westhuizen has risen significantly in England. So much so that it has been rumoured that he has been offered several high profile interviews with clubs in England.

    Having dismissed speculation when asked in the press, the board must be relieved that their manager is staying. This could however be very different in the coming weeks. The situation is complex but very intriguing.

    FC Copenhagen boss Solbaken has taken over charge at Southampton leaving the role vacant, van der Westhuizen is the favourite for the job. With the offer of a bigger role from Copenhagen, Fulham, Swansea, QPR and Birmingham will the loyalty of the popular manager change?

    To add fuel to the fire, an inside source has indicated an argument within the club. With van der Westhuizen asking for more money to strengthen the squad for a title push, the board have surprisingly stated "Due to the underperformance this year, we feel that a manager under scrutiny like yourself should not be given additional money".

    This has reportedly made van der Westhuizen furious. Rightly so it would seem as the manager has worked wonders to make the club competitive and has also seen and increase in profit in the last 6 months amounting to nearly £7 million.

    Whatever the outcome, we are in for an exciting second half of the season.

    A very good month but not the best. We should have picked up more points but we are where we are. TOP OF THE LEAGUE! It is a slender lead of 1 point but with some luck and if we stay focused, we could make this top spot our own.

    Player of the Month: Troels Jensen. What a man. We got him on loan from Napoli, they are somehow not renewing his contract so we are working to bring him here permanently on a free!

    April

    Compared to last month, this month is going to be proper busy. With a number of fixtures, we need to stay competitives as we enter the Champions Phase of the Superliga and look to push on in the Danish cup too.
    Best get to it!

    Hopefully an indication of the month as we start as we mean to go on. Jensen scores another worldie, smashing in the winner from 20 yards.

    Jensen has really stepped it up a gear in recent months. His two goals here managed to be the difference. A late rally from OB was not enough.

    Brondby away filled me with anxiety but when the whistle went, my worries were soon calmed. We were dominant. Gonzalez has been hit and miss but after a long drought he has finally scored another Jensen decides to pop in another 2 goals. Middelfart fans chanting his name "HE SCORES WHEN HE WANTS!"

    This is it. The 6 pointer. Sadly we matched each other and in truth, we held on. A draw suits us fine, no ground lost.

    Good news ahead of our next game. Little ol Randers have beaten Copenhagen! A gap is appearing!

    The gap was not widened as we were unable to beat the Wolves. All the points count though!

    A lovely new record by our very own Radza. He has been the ever-preset from the very start of this journey. Right up the leagues and now breaking records.

    Randers have done us a favour but we tried to get the better of them to get the win. Solid defence meant we were held for our third consecutive 0-0. I hope these dropped points won't cost us.

    Up against the Wolves yet again. A goalless draw was the result a few games ago. The cup was different. Troels Jensen took the game by the scruff of the neck and got us the breakthrough! We are going to the final!

    It feels like we have played the same teams all month, a final game of the month against Esbjerg sees Jensen score yet again and we get the 3 points!

    A really good month and with Copenhagen slipping up, we have moved a bit further clear! One more month to potentially cause the biggest shock in Danish football. Can we do it?

    An undefeated month. Good going!

    Player of the month: No doubt it's Jensen. He really has played well and I am pleased to confirm that he will be joining on a permanent basis!

  43. Very good month there mate. Starting to get some breathing room at the top! Last month was good as well. Bet those 17 fans were glad they made the trip for the AGF match!

    Thanks man, was quite difficult to tinker the formations and not go all out. Definitely being more cautious. On a serious note, I am annoyed by the fans aspect. I know Middelfart is a small place but given the growing stature of the team I would have thought the fan base would have grown to match this!

    This is it sports fans. The final few games. Make or break. Can we win the league and break the hoodoo?
    What better way to start the month than a game vs the reigning champions!

    Jesus. Last time time I saw this much yellow was when Olga smiled at me at the fish market. A very intense game where former Hammers man Nordveit got sent off. Clive Watts scored an absolute screamer. He hit it so hard the ball nearly burst! Surely the league is ours now just need one more win I think!

    7 years. 7 long years where Copenhagen have dominated, until us.
    Now onto the Cup final!


    Danish Cup Final
    Silkeborg vs Middelfart

    Welcome to this special presentation of the Danish Cup Final. Middelfart come into this game as slight favourites, but with the surprises we have had this season, never write off an underdog!
    Just shy of 20,000 fans here as we wait for Kick off.

    Kick off: We are underway as Middelfart get us started!
    24 Minutes: A relatively quiet first opening stage, Middelfart have the ball but no real chances yet.
    43 Minutes: A real chance here as the passing picks up speed from Middelfart's midfielders, Hansen plays it out onto Thychosen on the left. Low cross into the box, JENSENNN!!! What a tidy finish for the lead!
    43 Minutes: Silkeborg get us underway and look to attack. They have played a lofted through ball, a chance for BAYYY!! He has done it! Instant reply from Silkeborg! And just like that the game has come to life.

    Half time: Good viewing here as the teams are looking to build on their goals. Let's hope for more of the same.
    68 Minutes: Middelfart have again had possession but the game has slowed right down. Not much to report.
    90 Minutes: That's it! We are going to extra time!

    Extra time: Both sides look set for penalties here, not much in the way of chances and we look set for the shootout it seems!

    PENALTIES: It's keeper vs keeper. Every penalty taker will be feeling nervous, can they handle the pressure. Middelfart will take the first penalty in front of the Silkeborg end.

    Penalty 1: Jensen steps up for Middelfart. He has been red hot this season, can he do it? SCORES! A hard shot into the top right corner!
    Penalty 1: Up steps Silkeborg and MISS! The ball goes low and right but way past the outside of the post.
    Penalty 2: Next up is Hansen for Middelfart! GOAL! Right down the middle!
    Penalty 2: Silkeborg need this to get on the board. SAVED! Radza punches it clear, what a save!
    Penalty 3: Thycosen now. GOAL! It means Silkeborg need to score to stay in.
    Penalty 3: This is it. A score to stay in. RADZA SAVES again!! The crowd does great and Radza is running to the fans!

    The board have upped it and rightly so, the £10 Million profit I made for the club should warrant it.

    I don't quite know why MOlberg is so popular, he was a rotation player but still won all the awards. My vote was definitely from Jensen. All about them goals!

    Look at that increase! up 70 places!

  50. I'm with theBattman. Give Europe a crack then maybe try a different challenge. You can't just walk away having finally ended Copenhagen's dominance, can you???
