Congratulations on promotion! Hope there's more to come, and that coaching badges... finally


Thanks, @Bitner. The 2021 season in 2. Deild was very exciting and now, finally, in my third pre-season of the save I get to study for a coaching badge. The Chairman finally came through for me just as he announces he’s not standing for re-election.

Annika Vestergaard: Well?


Stuniverse: Well, what?

Annika Vestergaard: Did you meet him? The new Chairman? What did he say?

Stuniverse: Oh, Mr Arge. Mr Mattias Arge. Yeah, we spoke briefly.

Annika Vestergaard: And?

Stuniverse: Well he shook my hand, congratulated me on winning the 2. Deild title and gaining promotion to 1. Deild, and thanked me for my patience during the Election canvassing and the Election itself. Mr Arge said he's delighted to be Chairman of Undrid Fotboltsfelag.


Annika Vestergaard: And? Anything else?

Stuniverse: Well he said there would be no cash investment into the club and that he wasn't here to rock the boat.

Annika Vestergaard: OK. Is that good? Do you think you can work with him?

Stuniverse: Well, we briefly talked about his vision for the club and, to be fair, I couldn't see any difference between what Mr Arge was saying and what Mr Lognberg had said. As you know, Mr Lognberg was very stubborn and set in his ways which wound me up no end so hopefully Mr Arge will be easier to get along with... Time will tell on that one.

Torshavn Sports: Undrid Fotboltsfelag have confirmed the signing of 22 year-old centre-back Aron Sorensen on a free transfer from Klaksvikar Itrottarfelag III.

Undrid manager Stuniverse reunites with Sorensen who was a virtual ever present in Stuniverse's first 18-months in charge, until Sorensen surprisingly decided to leave for KI III in July last year. Both teams got promoted to 1. Deild but Stuniverse was able to persuade Sorensen to return to J & K Vollur.

Welcome back, Aron.

Jack Wilson sits down in a booth in the corner of and nervously waits for manager Stuvinerse to show. It's been around 10 months since he was barred from the Udrid facilities by then owner Arnar Lognberg, while Jack still showed up to some games he didn't dare to decided to try and interview Stuniverse incase it got him in trouble. But with the owner deciding not to run for reelection and Udrid just won promotion so Jack that it was worth the risk. Jack didn't have anything to fear as just 10 mins after he sat down Manager Stuniverse arrived.


Jack: It's been a very long absence but it's good to see you again manager Stuniverse. First off big congrats on winning the league and taking Udrid to new heights. I got some questions for you if you don't mind.


Stuniverse: Likewise, Jack. It’s been a while but I don’t think we can say any more about that, can we? Not while Mr. Lognberg remains Chairman of Undrid. Thank you. It was an amazing season, unbelievable in many ways, and of course fire away with your questions.


Jack: Just how magical of a season was that for you and your squad?


Stuniverse: Magical is a good word for it because we hadn’t even thought about winning the 2. Deild Title in pre-season. Yes, we thought we could build on the previous successful season to challenge for promotion, but to win the title in such style, by such a comfortable distance, breaking Undrid and 2. Deild records left, right and centre was beyond our wildest dreams.


Jack: What are your thoughts about being promoted and playing in a new league?


Stuniverse: I’m just so proud of everybody connected to the club and that they got their rewards for all the hard work and effort they’ve put in, not just this season, but last season, and in previous years.

The players, of course, were magnificent. They stood up and were counted from the very first game of the campaign and they grew in confidence as we gathered momentum and won game, after game, after game. We had the odd set-back along the way, we lost two consecutive league games at one point, but the players showed the togetherness we have in the squad, the spirit and character they have both individually and collectively, and bounced back stronger than ever after each setback.

Hopefully, playing in 1. Deild will help us bring in more revenue through increased attendances and more commercial and marketing opportunities.


Jack: You must be very happy that you are now a Semi pro club but what does it change for player contracts, ability to bring in players and your own salary? Will you still be have to be working at the bar/restaurant on your off days?


Stuniverse: Blimey, there’s quite a few things wrapped up in that question.

For me, personally, yes I’m now being paid by Undrid but I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a salary, I’m certainly not going to be able to raise a mortgage off the back of it. So, yes, I’ll still be working behind the bar and waiting tables in Mr and Mrs Vestergaard’s hostelry.

We can now pay our players although, to be fair, none of them are contracted as such but they will get paid appearance money and bonuses next season. Hopefully that’ll make it harder for other clubs to prize our players away from J & K Vollur, but it does mean we’re still powerless if a player gets a better offer and wants to leave.


Jack: I'm pretty biased in my thoughts about Arnar Lognberg but now that he's not your boss what are your thoughts on him and your time as his employee?


Stuniverse: I think it’s fair to say that Mr. Lognberg and myself haven’t always agreed on everything but, even though we haven’t always seen eye to eye on things, I can’t fault him for wanting the very best for the football club and striving to achieve that. I can’t blame him for not paying me a wage because Undrid were an Amateur side but his constant refusal to fund a coaching badge for me was very frustrating. Ironically, the very last thing Mr Lognberg did as Chairman was to fund a coaching badge for me.

Mr Lognberg steps down after Undrid’s best ever season in their short 16 year history, so his tenure has to be seen as a success and his name will forever be written in the Undrid history books. I wish him all the very best for the future and hope he will continue to support Undrid Fotboltsfelag and attend our games.

Hopefully the new Chairman, Mr Arge, can help us build on the success we’ve had at J & K Vollur during my time as Undrid manager.


Jack: Have you talked to the new board about the future of the club and if so are goals the same as Arnar?


Stuniverse: I’ve met Mr Arge, the new Chairman, briefly. He congratulated me on our promotion last season, told me that he didn’t plan on changing anything that wasn’t broken, and to carry on as if nothing had changed. He did stress that there would be no cash investment into the club at this time.


Jack: Lastly is there anyone you would like to shoutout/thank


Stuniverse: The players, obviously. Without the players performing the way they did all campaign we wouldn’t have achieved what we achieved this season. They’re the ones who deserve all the credit.

My backroom staff who worked tirelessly behind the scenes, with particular thanks to the recruitment team who had the very challenging task of finding players who were good enough to improve the quality of our team and squad and were willing to play for us for nothing.

Mr and Mrs Vestergaard because, if it wasn’t for them employing me in a part-time capacity at their hostelry, I wouldn’t be able to afford living here.

And their daughter, Annika, who translated for me in my first few weeks and months here and taught me how to speak Faroese.

And finally, and this is beginning to sound like an Oscar winning speech, a very special thank you to my mum and dad for their support and encouragement.


Jack: That is quite a list you have there, thank you again for meeting and I'll make sure to get the video up ASAP.

PREVIEW: Midvags Boltfelag v Undrid Fotboltsfelag (Friendly)

Torshavn Sports: Well it doesn't seem five minutes since you were finishing off the 2. Deild campaign as Champions and now it's your first pr-season game ahead of Undrid Fotboltsfelag's fist ever season in 1. Deild. How are you feeling?

Stuniverse: I'm feeling great thank you. The players have worked hard in training this week and we're looking forward to getting out on the pitch again and finding some rhythm.


Torshavn Sports: With an obvious step-up in standard this season in 1. Deild, how are you approaching pre-season this year?

Stuniverse: To be honest with you, the same as always. The start of pre-season is primarily about fitness and giving as many players in the squad as much playing time as possible. We start against 3. Deild side Midvags Boltfelag today, then we have two games against 2. Deild sides, and then we play three teams from the top flight Betri Deildin Menn with a Testimonial for Trygvi Absalonsen in there to celebrate his 10 years playing for Undrid, against 3. Deild side FC Hoyvik II where Trygvi started out.


Torshavn Sports: The media prediction is for Undrid Fotboltsfelag to finish 4th in the 1. Deild this season. Does that match your own expectations?

Stuniverse: Both the outgoing Chairman (Arnar Lognberg) and incoming Chairman (Mattias Arge) are looking for us to finish mid-table and we had a good meeting with the players on Monday and agreed exactly that. But we had an amazing season last campaign, the players are full of confidence, and if we get off to a good start, with some early momentum behind us, as we proved last season, who knows how far we can go and what we can achieve.


Torshavn Sports: How are you getting on with Mattias Arge, the new Chairman?

Stuniverse: So far, so good, although to be honest not much has changed at the football club - apart from the transition to Semi-Professonal status which outgoing Chairman Arnar Lognberg put in place - and I've been asked to just carry on what I've been doing.


Torshavn Sports: We haven't seen much of your agent at J & K Vollur recently, or in and around Torshavn, or on the Faroe Islands for that matter but rumours of him offering your services to other football clubs won't go away. Are you planning on seeing this season out as manager of Undrid Fotboltsfelag?

Stuniverse: First of all, I'm not sure if technically I do have an agent, I'm certainly not being paid enough by the football club to afford one. And, second, if you're referring to Stanley Baryla, I can't remember the last time I even spoke to him. In fact, the last time we spoke he told me that my reputation in the footballing world was so low no other football club was prepared to even offer me an interview. So, like it or not, Undrid Fotboltsfelag supporters are stuck with me.


Torshavn Sports: After the last two seasons, we like that a lot. Good luck for the season ahead.

Stuniverse: Thank you.
