  1. Oppsal Youth Intake 2032 Our promotion to the Premier division has meant we moved to a bigger stadium and also that we are now fully professional! Whatever happens this season, that is already a big step forward. The intake this year is encouraging again, with a few interesting prospects: Two players stand out, the first being Sortevik 32A: This guy looks good apart from some low determination, however I am excited because I think with a bit of retraining he could be a perfect false 9, which I ideally want to transition our tactic to include. Our new professional status could help some of our players to realise what a false nine actually is. The second standout this year is Jakhelln 32B who i'll train as a wide midfielder: He's a bit raw and probably won't see the first team for a few years but he definitely looks promising.
  2. Oppsal Season 2031 Report After four straight 8th place finishes in Norway's second division, I was looking for some improved consistency as we hopefully pushed towards the playoffs. With plenty of promising youngsters coming through and some of the players from our first intakes now being experienced and in their prime, it was bound to be an exciting season, hopefully we had the quality to finish above 8th this time. Cup- Started with a pretty routine 3-0 win over lower league Fana before a tough draw against Lyn from our league in the second round. These guys are kind of our bogey team and we unfortunately lost a close one 2-1. 2nd round is not very good as i've set my target as 3rd round minimum for the last few years so this was a bit disappointing. League- We started off with a great 5-0 win over Sandnes Ulf, then lost 3-2 to our bogey team Lyn. This was followed by a 9 match unbeaten run and only a single loss in 16 league games, meaning we were surprisingly topping the table. Some inconsistency then set in, as we seemed to alternate between wins and losses every other game, however we still hovered around the automatic promotion places. With two games to go, the table looked like this: Three teams tied on points at the top, with 4th place just 1 point back. We then had to play Fredrikstad, where we pulled off a solid win, however everyone else had similar heroics: At the end of our game we were alone at the top and I thought we would top the table heading into the final day, however then Sandnes Ulf scored a 93rd minute winner and Kristiansund scored a 92nd minute equalizer AND a 96th minute winner to leave us in essentially the same position with 1 game to go. And we were playing 1st place Kristiansund away from home, winner takes all for the title. A draw meant likely neither of us would win, so we went in hoping for a miracle away win. We were unfortunately soundly beaten 4-0 and sank all the way down to 4th place to finish the season. I still felt confident however as we had played well all season. My players activated playoff mode and smashed Kongsvinger 3-0 in the first round of the playoffs. We then faced Sandnes Ulf and a stroke of luck saw them receive a red card less than 10 minutes into the match. We took full advantage and obliterated them 6-0, with 6 different goalscorers. This meant we had a two legged tie against Sandefjord for a place in the Premier division next year. The first leg was at home and was pretty even however we created the better chances and ended with a solid 3-0 win. I was still a bit worried for the second leg however 2 minutes in, centre mid Magnus Berg 22A grabbed a great interception, took a few dribbles forward and smashed it in the top left corner to give us an early lead. They pulled one back and it was 1-1 at half time. I then told my players to play on the counter and they did fantastically, as while Sandefjord pinged tons of shots from outside the box we stayed solid and were vicious on the break. Club Legend, record goalscorer and appearance maker Pål Langåker 19A, from our first intake, grabbed two excellent goals in 2 minutes to put the game to bed. Promotion secured! Best Players- Top goalscorer: Pål Langåker 19A and Jens Hurthi 28F (15 goals) One of the biggest improvements this season was consistency by our strikers, as both starters combined for 30 goals, 13 assists and 10 POM awards. Our third choice striker Torjus Krogstad 25A chipped in with another 10 goals, 3 assists and 2 POM awards. Most assists: Glenn Hoel (9 assists) Our untagged LB had a great season and held down the starting spot despite pressure from some great upcoming talents. Highest avg rating: Glenn Hoel (7.23) Most POM: Pål Langåker 19A (7) MVP: Jens Hurthi 28F Best U23 Player: Jens Hurthi 28F Results Results 2 (no) Transfers One negative is that we had one of our most promising youngsters, Jan Henanger 31A poached by Premier division Rosenborg as he refused to sign a professional contract. Its a shame because he already looks really good but oh well. This was an excellent season and we've finally made some more progress!

  3. for the first time we have sold a player for actual money!
  4. Oppsal Youth Intake 2031 Another pretty solid intake, I managed to get junior coaching upgraded again recently which I believe has paid off, with 3 nice 5 star potential players. The best of them seems to be a striker, Henanger 31A. He looks pretty nice but we do have about 4 talented young strikers trying to break into the first team at the moment so he may have to wait a couple seasons to move up to the senior team. There is also Heggelund 31B who looks like a really promising fullback although he lacks some determination. The story is the same at RB however so he will also likely wait a little while before breaking into the first team. The third 5* PA player we got is Aasenhus 31C, who is even more raw than the other two.
  5. Oppsal Season 2030 Report Our goals for this season were to push for the playoffs and hopefully progress from last year. After three straight 8th place finishes, I was hoping for some improvement ideally. You can probably guess what happened though. Cup- A really pathetic effort saw us knocked out in the first round by lower league Kvik Halden. We definitely need to improve on this next season as that prize money helps keep us afloat, with the difference between 1st and 3rd round knockouts of about 100K. League- We had an extremely slow start with only 5 points from our first 6 games and despite some improvement we were still pretty inconsistent for the remainder of the season. The only thing we are consistent about is our placing, 8th yet again. 5 points off the playoffs and we felt slightly further off than last year, probably down to the poor start. Anyways, I think we can definitely do better next year as we continue our incredibly slow progress up the Norwegian leagues. We were somewhat affected by injuries as well this year, so with some better luck we may be able to be more consistent. Best Players- Top goalscorer: Jens Hurthi 28F (11 goals) Another year of inconsistency from my strikers, but Hurthi did really well with his chances and looks to be leading a new generation of talented strikers. Most assists: Per Christian Rygh 27J (4 assists) A low total as we had about 5 players end on 3 assists, perhaps due to increased rotation this year. This guy started the season as our backup RB before winning the starting job, playing really well and then getting hit by a long term injury. He looks very promising though and could definitely be our RB of the future. Highest avg rating: Jens Hurthi 28F (7.10) Most POM: Jens Hurthi 28F (3) MVP: Hurthi 28F Best U23 Player: guess who, Hurthi 28F Results Results 2 (no) Transfers As far as next season goes, I wouldn't exactly be upset with another 8th place finish, but I really think we can do better. We have some very promising youngsters coming through, especially 16 year old Rytterager 30A from the most recent intake, who I decided to give a starting role to because why not. | League | Pos. | Cup | Europe | Top scorer | Top assists | Highest avg rating| Notes ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2019 2nd Division 3rd 2nd Round - Bransdal(22) Bransdal(8) Bright-Taylor(7.41) PROMOTION 2020 1st Division 11th 1st Round - Langåker(11) Östman/Nilsen(7) Bright-Taylor(7.06) Survived 2021 1st Division 9th 3rd Round - Langåker(14) Rosendal/Nilsen(6) Kristiansen(7.20) Mid Table 2022 1st Division 9th 2nd Round - Langåker(18) Rosendal/Paulsberg(6) Bright-Taylor(7.07) Mid Table 2023 1st Division 14th 1st Round - Bransdal(9) Nilsen(5) Nilsen(7.08) Relegated 2024 2nd Division 2nd 3rd Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(9) Bright-Taylor(7.51) PROMOTION 2025 1st Division 15th 2nd Round - Langåker(10) Harviken(7) Nilsen(7.14) Relegated 2026 2nd Division 2nd 1st Round - Langåker(17) Harviken(11) Granhaug(7.58) PROMOTION 2027 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Langåker(9) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.21) Mid Table 2028 1st Division 8th 4th Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.23) Mid Table 2029 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Krogstad(11) Nilsen/Hoel(7) Hoel(7.09) Mid Table 2030 1st Division 8th 1st Round - Furthi(11) Rygh(4) Furthi(7.10) Mid Table
  6. When all of your best young players end up being right backs:
  7. Oppsal Youth Intake 2030 We've had a few years of good intakes now and our investments finally seem to be paying off. This year's is very top heavy, I only signed about 7 players which is pretty low for me. The top two prospects look very promising however. Here is the most promising player Rytterager 30A, who I think I will train as a LM as we are somewhat overloaded with CMs at the moment. he could be the backup LM as soon as next season though as he looks quality already. Here is the other 5* potential player, who is much more raw and will need a few years of development before hitting the first team:
  8. Oppsal Season 2029 Report Another season in the books, as we tried yet again to stabilise in the Norwegian First Division and push for the playoffs while slowly introducing the talented prospects from the last few intakes. Cup- Scraped past lower league Follo 2-1 in the first round, smashed even lower league Grovfjord 5-0 in the second round before putting in an awful performance in the third round, against yet another lower league team in Lørenskog IF. We went down 2-0 early and couldn't pull one back until the 90th minute when it was too late. 3rd round is the minimum I wanted for this year so despite the disappointing exit it's not the end of the world. League- We didn't really do anything special in the league this year, pretty much serving up mediocre, 'mid-table' form all year. Not great but not terrible. We were technically in the running for the playoffs right until the final day though, although we needed to win and have several results go our way. We did win, but so did both teams above us sadly. We seem to really like that 8th spot as this is the third year running we have finished there! Best Players- Top goalscorer: Torjus Krogstad 25A (11 goals) All of my strikers were very inconsistent this year, with plenty of scoring droughts. Young Torjus is developing pretty well though and ended up scoring more than anyone else. Most assists: Jørgen Solvang Nilsen and Glenn Hoel (7 assists) Impressive from Nilsen considering I gave up his starting spot to the younger Magnus Berg, but at the age of 33 and being the only player remaining from when I took over, he is still class. Glenn Hoel meanwhile has developed into an excellent attacking fullback, and I am left wondering how I didn't even tag him when he came through the intake. Highest avg rating: Glenn Hoel (7.09) Most POM: Glenn Hoel and Vegard Dyvik 25F (3) MVP: This year I'm giving it to Glenn Hoel. Best U23 Player: Kenneth Kristiansen 27F. This guy grabbed one of the starting CB spots and did really well all season, ending up with 4 goals and an average rating of 7.04. We now have at least 4 incredibly talented CBs, making it quite a strength for us, which is surprising because 4-5 seasons ago it was our biggest weakness. Results Results 2 (no) Transfers The goals for next season are pretty much the same, but I think we have a solid chance to get into the playoffs, or at least perform a bit more consistently. There are some incredible youngsters coming through, and they may be needed as some bigger clubs are sniffing around at a few of my stars. | League | Pos. | Cup | Europe | Top scorer | Top assists | Highest avg rating| Notes ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2019 2nd Division 3rd 2nd Round - Bransdal(22) Bransdal(8) Bright-Taylor(7.41) PROMOTION 2020 1st Division 11th 1st Round - Langåker(11) Östman/Nilsen(7) Bright-Taylor(7.06) Survived 2021 1st Division 9th 3rd Round - Langåker(14) Rosendal/Nilsen(6) Kristiansen(7.20) Mid Table 2022 1st Division 9th 2nd Round - Langåker(18) Rosendal/Paulsberg(6) Bright-Taylor(7.07) Mid Table 2023 1st Division 14th 1st Round - Bransdal(9) Nilsen(5) Nilsen(7.08) Relegated 2024 2nd Division 2nd 3rd Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(9) Bright-Taylor(7.51) PROMOTION 2025 1st Division 15th 2nd Round - Langåker(10) Harviken(7) Nilsen(7.14) Relegated 2026 2nd Division 2nd 1st Round - Langåker(17) Harviken(11) Granhaug(7.58) PROMOTION 2027 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Langåker(9) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.21) Mid Table 2028 1st Division 8th 4th Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.23) Mid Table 2029 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Krogstad(11) Nilsen/Hoel(7) Hoel(7.09) Mid Table
  9. Important update: There is a team in the Norwegian lower leagues named Fart
  10. Oppsal Youth Intake 2029 After two excellent intakes I wasn't expecting too much this year, and compared to the last two it is a bit disappointing. We did however get one very promising player and you never know if any of the others will develop into anything decent. I seem to have forgotten to take a screenshot on intake day so here's one from a few days later with a few other randoms from earlier intakes sprinkled in: And here is the gem of this intake, Knudtzon: The squad is already pretty stacked in the CM department, which is likely where this guy will play, so he may have to wait a few years before getting any match experience.
  11. Oppsal Season 2028 Report I am flying through the seasons now, as it is a lot more fun when you aren't yo-yoing between the same two divisions! This year we were aiming at mounting a challenge for the playoffs and continuing our youth development. Cup- We convincingly beat lower league Vestbyen in the first round 4-1, then upstaged Hønefoss BK from our division with a counterattacking 1-0 win away. We then faced 3rd division Skarp and a pretty poor performance, including a 92nd minute penalty save by my new backup GK, meant it went all the way to penalties where our heroic keeper saved another one and we went through to the 4th round. We faced Stromgodset, who were one of the worst teams in the premier league and I smelled an upset brewing. This was somewhat quelled by them going up 4-0 in the first half. My team realised they were playing a football game after I gave them the old hairdryer treatment at half time and we managed to pull back 3 goals but it wasn't enough. Still, I'm definitely pleased with making it to the 4th round. League- Very similar to last year, we were pretty good but not great. A pretty poor start is ultimately what cost us, as we hovered in and out of the final playoff spot before finishing 3 points off in 8th. It was an encouraging season however and we should be able to improve next season. We lost no less than 9 league games by 1 goal so if our defence can develop a bit more we will start looking a lot better. Even then, if we just started reasonably instead of only managing 4 points from our first 6 games we would have made the playoffs. Best players- Top goalscorer: Pål Langåker 19A (17 goals) Another solid and consistent season from our number 1 striker. He has now surpassed 100 goals for the club and is still just 25. He's going to end up setting quite a total for anyone to beat. Most assists: Jørgen Solvang Nilsen (7 assists) The only player still left from when I took over, who is now 33 years old, is still playing incredibly well. I tried to rotate him out of the starting 11 for a few matches this season and he responded by scoring 4 goals in 2 games after I put him back in. He is definitely a legend of the club. Highest avg rating: Nilsen (7.23) Most POM: Nilsen (6) MVP: Has to be Jørgen Solvang Nilsen Best U23 player: Sigve Iversen 24A. This was a breakout season for 20 year old Sigve, who I really like as a player because he is so versatile. He is naturally a CM but usually plays as a LM for us. He's also a capable RM, AM and even RB where I've played him once. He also has 19 teamwork which is potentially the highest stat of anyone at the club. Results Results 2 (no) Transfers Academy Players that played over 1000 minutes this season: Vidar Andersen 26A (Capped by Norway U19s) Glenn Harviken (5 goals, 4 assists, 2 POM) Pål Langåker 19A (17 goals, 5 assists, 4 POM) Rasmus Nilsen 20A (8 clean sheets) Glenn Hoel (2 goals, 4 assists, 1 POM) Torjus Krogstad 25A (10 goals, 4 assists, 1 POM) Arve Granhaug 19B (2 goals, 5 assists, 2 POM) Vegard Dyvik 25F (2 assists, 1 POM) Sigve Iversen 24A (5 goals, 6 assists, 2 POM) Glenn Fritzøe Östman 28A (1 goal, 1 assist, 1 POM, Youngest ever appearance maker for the club) Magnus Berg 22A (6 goals, 1 assist, 1 POM) Henrik Butterud (1 goal, 2 assists) Overall I'm pretty satisfied with this season and I think we can definitely do even better next season where my aim is for us to make the playoffs. We're starting to get serious interest for a few of our players from Premier League teams, especially for Vidar Andersen 26A who has developed into a 4.5* beast of a CB at the age of 18 so need to work hard to keep them. | League | Pos. | Cup | Europe | Top scorer | Top assists | Highest avg rating| Notes ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2019 2nd Division 3rd 2nd Round - Bransdal(22) Bransdal(8) Bright-Taylor(7.41) PROMOTION 2020 1st Division 11th 1st Round - Langåker(11) Östman/Nilsen(7) Bright-Taylor(7.06) Survived 2021 1st Division 9th 3rd Round - Langåker(14) Rosendal/Nilsen(6) Kristiansen(7.20) Mid Table 2022 1st Division 9th 2nd Round - Langåker(18) Rosendal/Paulsberg(6) Bright-Taylor(7.07) Mid Table 2023 1st Division 14th 1st Round - Bransdal(9) Nilsen(5) Nilsen(7.08) Relegated 2024 2nd Division 2nd 3rd Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(9) Bright-Taylor(7.51) PROMOTION 2025 1st Division 15th 2nd Round - Langåker(10) Harviken(7) Nilsen(7.14) Relegated 2026 2nd Division 2nd 1st Round - Langåker(17) Harviken(11) Granhaug(7.58) PROMOTION 2027 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Langåker(9) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.21) Mid Table 2028 1st Division 8th 4th Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.23) Mid Table
  12. @dkouv The ACON from the Ultimate Challenge still haunts me! I never seem to do these challenges the easy way
  13. Oppsal 2028 Youth Intake Well, nothing could hope to live up to last year, but I definitely can't complain about this years intake. More quantity over quality compared to last year but there definitely look to be some talented players in here and I'd be surprised if at least 3 or 4 didn't turn into first teamers eventually. We've got another player who is very talented this year and will be thrust straight into the first team and will certainly get some starts. He's also in a position we needed at CB which is great. Here is Glenn Fritzøe Östman 28A (who shares a last name with a club legend) And here is the other guy with 5* potential, who is definitely a bit raw and will need a few years of development before breaking into the first team:
  14. Oppsal Season 2027 Report So, our third attempt at the Norwegian First Division, could we survive? or would the yo-yoing continue. A fresh injection of talented youngsters from the intake as well as the continued development of more established players made me feel optimistic. Cup- We comprehensively beat lower league Gjelleråsen IF in the first round then narrowly scraped by Tynset on penalties in the next round. We then drew Arendal who are one of the better teams in our division so lost out 3-1. Reaching the 3rd round gives us 100K+ of prize money so i'm going to set that as the benchmark for future seasons. League- A pretty solid performance throughout, especially at home. We hovered in and out of the playoff places for the first 2/3 of the season before dropping off slightly, but we still avoided relegation with 5 matches remaining and finished in our best ever position of 8th! We never seriously challenged for the playoffs but I am very satisfied with a mid-table finish. Best Players- Top goalscorer: Pål Langåker 19A (9 goals) I switched Pål to the deep lying forward role this season in order to give our other talented young strikers game time as advanced forwards, meaning he didn't rack up as many goals. He was still solid however and had a good season. Most assists: Jørgen Solvang Nilsen (7 assists) Another fantastic season from our ball-winning midfielder who is defying his age to still be one of our best players despite all the talented youngsters coming through. Highest avg rating: Jørgen Solvang Nilsen (7.21) Most POM: Vegard Dyvik 25F (3) A pretty surprising winner here. I threw this guy into our starting RB spot as Henrik Kaasa 19C had basically topped out as a 2 star player and Dyvik had much higher potential. He did okay overall but had a couple of fantastic games. He definitely looks pretty promising. MVP: Jørgen Solvang Nilsen Best U23 Player: Glenn Hoel. This guy managed to win the starting LB role over Stian Sollien 21A as an untagged player and has actually turned into a really good player. I actually remember almost not signing this guy from the intake as he only had 3 star potential and didn't look that great but he's now rated 4 star ability with 4.5 potential. Just goes to show that initial reports on intake day can be wildly off, especially at this level. Results Results 2 (no) Transfers Academy Players that played over 1000 minutes this season: Rasmus Nilsen 20A (9 clean sheets, 1 POM) Stian Rustand (4 goals, 1 assist, 1 POM) Pål Langåker 19A (9 goals, 2 assists, 2 POM) Glenn Hoel (1 goal, 6 assists, 1 POM) Arve Granhaug 19B (2 goals, 3 assists, 2 POM) Vidar Andersen 26A Glenn Harviken (5 goals, 2 assists, 1 POM) Vegard Dyvik 25F (4 assists, 3 POM) Sigve Iversen 24A (3 goals, 1 assist) Christian Tryggvason 27A (6 goals, 2 assists, 1 POM, Youngest ever appearance maker and goal scorer for the club) Torjus Krogstad 25A (7 goals, 1 assist, 1 POM) Magnus Berg 22A (1 assist) Henrik Butterud (1 goal) So we accomplished our goals for another season. Survival and a comfortable mid-table position to go with it. Next season I think we are good enough to at least challenge for the playoffs if not make it in. Only 4 players still remain from when I took over and they are slowly being phased out as new more talented youngsters come through. | League | Pos. | Cup | Europe | Top scorer | Top assists | Highest avg rating| Notes ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2019 2nd Division 3rd 2nd Round - Bransdal(22) Bransdal(8) Bright-Taylor(7.41) PROMOTION 2020 1st Division 11th 1st Round - Langåker(11) Östman/Nilsen(7) Bright-Taylor(7.06) Survived 2021 1st Division 9th 3rd Round - Langåker(14) Rosendal/Nilsen(6) Kristiansen(7.20) Mid Table 2022 1st Division 9th 2nd Round - Langåker(18) Rosendal/Paulsberg(6) Bright-Taylor(7.07) Mid Table 2023 1st Division 14th 1st Round - Bransdal(9) Nilsen(5) Nilsen(7.08) Relegated 2024 2nd Division 2nd 3rd Round - Langåker(17) Nilsen(9) Bright-Taylor(7.51) PROMOTION 2025 1st Division 15th 2nd Round - Langåker(10) Harviken(7) Nilsen(7.14) Relegated 2026 2nd Division 2nd 1st Round - Langåker(17) Harviken(11) Granhaug(7.58) PROMOTION 2027 1st Division 8th 3rd Round - Langåker(9) Nilsen(7) Nilsen(7.21) Mid Table
  15. @thomas_e I am actually not Norwegian, just thought it would be a fun place to attempt the challenge. I am incredibly familiar with the Norwegian lower leagues by now, but hopefully I'll get into the champions league someday. This season is finally looking pretty promising!
