Valerenga for the first game back was always going to be a tough one. I blame myself though I was a little rusty and tactically I was maybe reactive rather than proactive, I suppose not playing for a while will do that.

Clean sheet is a big bonus a feature that has been attributed to Nesselquist throughout is that he loves a clean sheet but Unfortunately, Molde and Rosenborg both capitalise on our dropped points and the title race turns once more.

Late fightback rescues a point and saves our blushes against bottom of the table. Self-sabotage as the opener is scored by our own player on loan. Krohg the 16-year-old forward gave his manager food for thought as he blasted his loan side in front!

Lady luck was shining as pulled off a remarkable result in Trondheim as Rosenborg are beaten 3-2, However Molde close the gap and its getting even more interesting.

A second Italian giant feels the wrath of the Odd giant killing machine at home. Incredible performance in such a tight game and to come out on top with a clean sheet made it all the sweeter. The Skagerak is now widely regard as a very tough away day in Europe no matter who is in visiting.

The signature shape worked wonders, Add in some immense goalkeeping and ruthless finishing and it’s the perfect recipe. Of course, at the heart of much of our big wins are vital set plays. The second goal comes from a well worked short corner a new routine being trailed out. The third goal is more the typical corner. Nesselquist’s attention to detail pays off yet again. However.....

It was the opener that provided the goal of the month. A slick move down the right. The finish from Aas is beautiful but it’s his movement, the shadow striker played to its best ability running in unmarked after playing between the lines of defence and midfield.

A magnificent strike from Rasmussen who has been brilliant since returning from injury had looked to set us on our way, but seconds after the game in the artic circle was tied. A penalty in the end delivered the 3 points that were deserved in a hugely dominant performance.

It was Molde's turn to drop points in dramatic fashion in a 5-3 loss.

Odd and Rosenborg are going punch for punch yet again this season, But Molde are still looking to have their say as they chase very closely, I wouldn’t rule out a Stromsgodset who are really strong defensively if they start finding goals it will see them close the gap. The Draw against bottom of the league could really come back to haunt Ole Martin.

Nice result against the big cheating Italian team with the striped jerseys.  Impressive! 

In the league it's crazy how consistently tight the title is!

Time for Odd to raid the Rosenborg and Molde Squads for talent that could upgrade the team.

Play a zero sum game like Bayern.....

Great result against the "Old Lady" with your young guns'!

Well we have been raiding them slightly but in the end we actually produce the best talent at the minute!

Flying out the traps, Both Rasmussen and Tjåland getting goals is great start, as both will be key if things are to go to plan for Nesselquist and Odds run to glory! Rosenborg dropped two points in the Trondheim derby which swings the Pendulum Odd's way.

Within a blink of an eye Tjåland is wiped out from the equation. Huge blow, but when one door closes another will always open.

Juve dish out some revenge, it wasn’t plain sailing for them as Odd made them work for it. A poor first goal made it uphill battle for Nesselquist’s side. Then final blow struck late on dealt the hammer blow of a miracle result in Italy.

The train keeps on rolling, Rasmussen has hit a real purple patch at the right time as he breaks through his most productive season to date. Viking survive even after being brushed aside! The result paves the way for one hell of a spectacle.

Two games to go, Yes the next one is Rosenborg and if results go our way it will see us crowned Norwegian champions for a 4th time in a row!

A packed out Skagerak, A pumped up Nesselquist, title on the line! Bring it on! OHHH and not to forget that old cliché. It’s a SIXPOINTER!

The short throw yet again comes off, as the ball stood up to the back post is headed home by the poised Rasmussen. 1-0 Odd

I have gone on and on about how important set plays have been throughout this save. My work here is done they have paid of time and time again. Here are the biggest example two colossal goals in such a tight game its worth all the time and effort.

Anything less than a win for Molde and the title is in the bag!

4 in a row! back to back doubles! Molde lost out against Viking which means the trophy will stay in Skien yet again!

Failing to take our chances early on in Eindhoven sees us crash out the tournament, Disappointing to say the least considering the big Juventus result.

"If you don’t perform to your absolute best at this level, you will be punished, and that exactly what happened to us here"

A nice clean sheet is a nice way to round of a title wining season, A Trademark Of Ole Martin Nesselquist

e7569740bc496677fc864eddab9aa9f4.png

 In the end Stromsgodset rallied to be our biggest challenge! Sad to have no completed an invincible season thanks to Stromsgodset. The Norwegian giants falter to a 3rd place finish and yet to win a title during Nesselquist’s reign at Odd. Molde who in recent times have been the biggest threat to Rosenborg throne finish 4th. A stark reminder to them that Odd are now the club of that title.

The only team to beat us all season domestically are the team that stands in the way of the treble. Both teams are known for solid defensive displays and lethal counter attacks so it could be an interesting tactical battle, a tight affair to say the least.

7ad0b77be633cfaba75d81407bffe15c.gif

We have seen the return of the clean sheet machine of Nesselball, but a special mention goes out to his splendid ability of construction lethal set plays another key component of his game plan.

The treble is sealed and the young man from Moss cements himself a place in history and a becomes a club legend in doing so!

Early goal proved to be killer and end any chance of a big European trophy. A poor group stage really bar the massive Juve result.

Summary

I think it’s now time to call it a day here and finish on top with a domestic treble. I have become bored I'm sure some can even tell that by my writing. Work has been hectic which never helps but in truth I have achieved all I set out to do. it was never a large task but more a relevant one to do with the location I work in. Tactically it was a challenge away from what I normally do and that was also a success.

Odd the oldest club in Norway won their first title and followed up with a further three in a row behind it. They have seen knockout stages of the Champions league and given out some major giant killings in the process. The Skagerak Arena has become a fortress to be reckoned with not only in Norway, but Europe. Their youth academy is the best in Norway and will continue supply the club for years to come. They have an endless pit of money and a squad that will go on to win the league and challenge for years to come.

I would love to play on and really chase down Eggen and Rosenborg, but the gap is huge and with wavering interest I feel I wouldn’t to the team ive built any justice. A European trophy escapes us but I have my reasons for that mainly the timing of knock out games.

Up Next

I plan a tactical post that will link all this together over on the tactics side of the forum I will link it in here. As promised, I’ll go into more depth of all the systems. Then ill embark on another journey where perhaps I will leave my one club save idea behind just maybe though.

Thanks

Thanks for everyone's input into the save. All the readers, comments and feedback are much appreciated I hope you enjoyed it and maybe took some extracts of Nesselball to your game.

Thanks very much! I think things could have played out longer had there not been big gaps in game time. But domestically it had become stale. 
 

tactic thread is underway as we speak. But it  will take some time to get spot on.

Of course! Take your time. Even just my latest “tactical interlude” took me quite a while because sometimes it’s fun to, you know, actually play the game a bit too...And then there’s those “life” and “work” things too...
