The new keeper, Brian Ulstrup, will have to take up the fight with Jakub Droppa(ball ? ) as 2nd keeper at the club..

Training match, Sweden

Landskrona BoIS v Herfølge 3-1 (2-0)


From the Herfølge website:

It was not the best team that won in today training game at Landskronas excellent artificial turf, but the most clever team that got the win. Though it was Herfølge playing nicely around and upfield and also produced many big chances, it ended with a home win 3-1 after 2-0 at half time.

The Swedes were relying on a solid defence, and punished the defencive mistakes that were made. It was therefor a strange feeling to drive home with a defeat after a good performance.

goalkeeper Morten Cramer was not quite as solid as he has been in the 3 first traininggames this year, and despite him making an excellent clearing of a clumsy made penalty by kick Josh Gowling at the end of the game, Cramer looked very bad at the swedes 2nd goal....

The two wingers were Alen Marcina and Peter Gravesen and in central midfield were Morten Avnskjold and Kim Kristensen. The short passing looked nice, though it didnt always look good when switching from attack to defence.

Up front Charles Gbeke once more showed how sharp he can be, scoring the 1-3 goal by a header, but also wasting some huge opportunintes. Poul Hübertz didnt create much, but played an excellent 2nd half as right winger, with Ebrima Sowe playing well up front with Gbeke.

The match was very tough played, and the Swedish referee was far from being popular among the Herfølges players.

A very good signing, while the Bosnian right winger, Bojan Tadic, is of a more unknown quality, though he has won 2 caps for the Bosnian U23/Olympic national team. A Norwegian forward may also be on his way, but their is a dispute if he was actually signed in time (two minutes to 12) in the last hour of the transfer deadline, so it's not sure that his transfer will be allowed by the Danish FA or UEFA... Despite the new signings, I doubt that ther is much hope for Herfølge at the bottom of the Superliga...
---

So, how good is the Superliga in compare with e.g. European top leagues or e.g. the MLS ?... Well, since I know little about the American leagues, I'll quote the view of an American from another forum, who actually know some American players, playing in Denmark...

Superliga = Lower German Bundesliga/upper 2nd Bundesliga (= best of MLS)

Danish 1st = Lower 2nd Bundesliga (= lower half of MLS), Upper Regionalliga

Danish 2nd = American A-league to best of D3 or USL 2nd division, or lower Regionalliga.
-----

Soccer/football is the biggest sport in Denmark, and Denmark is the mother-nation of associations , it's simply a natural part of life to join an association or club of some kind, so most small children join a club at a very young age (4 to 6-yo) and play soccer/football in the different children and youth leagues.. We also got the School tournament, with the final being shown live on TV every year..

For the ppl interested ?... In the structure, different levels of Danish soccer/football at the moment, then it is like this :

1) Superliga (12 teams)

2) 1st Division (Viasat Sport Division, 16 teams)

3) 2nd Division (Is going to be changed from next season to an East and West group with 14 teams each. Then also 6 Superliga 2nd teams will be allowed to play in the two 2nd Division groups next season)

4) Danmarksserien (most of the Superliga 2nd teams play in the DS or the Jyllandsserie), ther are 3 x 16 teams in DS = DS group 1 + DS Group 2 + DS Group 3) Is going to change from next season to an East and West group with 16 teams each....

5) Kvalrækken (qualification-league)

6) Jyllandsserie & Sjællandsserie & fyensserie (jutland , sealand and fuen series)

7) Serie 1
8) Serie 2
9) Serie 3
10) Serie 4
11) Serie 5
12) Serie 6

Each series has several groups of 12 teams each, several hundred groups in all ...And then ofcause ther are all the children and youth Leagues and Oldboys football as well.

I'm from Aarhus, and If you e.g. look at how many clubs ther are in a City like Aarhus, with 300,000 ppl, then I simply dont know, but I do know that the 32 biggest football clubs in Aarhus got an association called "Aarhus Fodboldforum", so my guess is that ther are around 50 different clubs at different levels in Aarhus and the biggest club, AGF Aarhus got 20+2 different teams (16 youth teams and 1 Superliga, 3 teams in the lower series + two old boys teams)....

Charles Gbeke got the honour of getting a two page interview in the Danish ESM* Football magazine TIPS bladet's special Superliga spring booklet "SAS Liga Special 2005".

He says, that he had actually given up on the dream of going to Europe, due to a trial at the French club Troyes (as a defencive midfielder) going wrong a few years back...

"... but then my friend Alen said that he was ready to try again and so I went with him"

They both went on a trial at Koblenz in Germany but, but ther were some problems between their Agent and the German coach, so it all looked to be a waist of time, but then Alen got to think of someone (an Agent ?) he knew in Denmark... Then Gbeke talks about his trip to Denmark, his ambitions/expectations and that he's a typical "target man", but that his technique is also good, having spend some years in Brazilian football (the two Brazilian 2nd division clubs Comercil In 2000, and Matsubara in 2002)... Otherwise he has played as both defender, midfielder and forward/striker at different clubs...

As for his NT ambitions, then he got a dual citizenship (Canada and the Ivory Coast) and says that he hope that the the ppl behind the Canadian NT now are going to spot him, but that he could also see himself playing as a duo with Didier Drogba for the Ivory Coast. He says:

-"But I'm not going to call the ppl behind the Canadian NT. I just have to score so many goals that they will spot me"

Superliga results
March 19 - 2005

Herfølge - Viborg 1-1 (0-0)
1-0: Peter Gravesen (66)
1-1: Jose Roberto Mota (80)
Attendance: 843

Not much good to say about this very poorly played match. Viborg were playing their usual long ball to the forwards, but not to all that much effect, since Herfølge were good at not giving away too many opportunities for Viborg to show their usual quick counterattacks. Though it was Viborg getting the first huge chance in the 7th minute, by a one-on-one with the Herfølge keeper Morten Cramer, but brilliantly cleared by the keeper.

The Herfølge players to watch in this match was the midfielder Peter Gravesen (younger brother of Thomas Gravesen, Real Madrid) and keeper Morten Cramer who made several great saves. Though Gravesen also missed two huge chances in the 28th and 29th minute. Cramer made another excellent save in the first half, when Viborg's Kenneth Fabricius got yet another one-on-one in the 38th minute..

Cramer was also on the spot saving the shot by Nørlund in the 2nd half after Nørlund got hold on the ball due to a huge mistake by Gbeke, who didnt show much in his debut match though he did get one big chance to score after a good free kick by Gravesen. Gbeke was replaced by Ebrima Sowe in the 66th minute, right after the goal by Gravesen. Herfølge dominated most of the 2nd half, but got a bit too defencive in the last 12 minutes or so, trying to hold on to their lead, and Viborg's Brazilian forward, "Mota" then showed how sharp and on target he is when he gets the chance...

Superliga, April 3 - 2005

FC Nordsjælland - Herfølge 0-0 (0-0)
Attendance: 2,170

A poorly played 1st half on a very poor pitch, though clearly dominated by Herfølge and the keepers showing some good saves, especially the Herfølge keeper Morten Cramer, saving a one-on-one with Tommy Olsen. The canadian AM/F, Alen Ivano Marcina, got his debut for Herfølge replacing Poul Hübertz at half time.

However, the 2nd half was totally dominated by FCN. And it was Tommy Olsen being close scoring in the 75th minute, after a Peter Benjaminsen shot hit the top bar and bounced to Olsen, though his header was saved by Cramer. Herfølge on the other had looked rather toothless, with the Canadian striker Gbeke not doing all that well, looking rather slow and clumsy in this match, but Herfølge did manage to create a chance in the last minute, with a good pass from Alen Marcina to fellow Canadian, Gbeke, though his header was saved by the FCN keeper. Tommy Olsen felt cheated by the referee in the end, when it looked like Cramer made a clear penalty.... Still, with Randers getting 3 points, neither FCN or Herfølge could be happy with this goalless draw...

Alen Marcina handed free transfer

The 25-yo Canadian AM/F, Alen Marcina, has been told that he will not get his contract extended and that he is free to return to Canada, since he's no longer needed by his Danish club Herfølge...Alen Marcina got to play two Superliga games for Herfølge, but according to the club, he never managed to reach the level they had expected...

Herfølge lose liga license

The Danish FA, DBU, has refused to give Herfølge Superliga license for next season, because the club dont meet the minimum financial requirements. Herfølge now got a week (until tuesday 24th) to solve the problem... If they dont apply, they will most likely get relegated no matter the outcome of the remaining Superliga games this season... The other Superliga clubs all got their license....

Is there any point in getting a Superliga licence if you finish last in the standings?

Herfølge seems destined for relegation on the basis of their on-field performance, even if they meet the league's minimum financial requirements.

No not really, except that they are not allowed to sign new contracts as long as they dont meet the minimum financial requirements...

The Danish FA (DBU) always make the "evaluation" and give Superliga license for next season this time a year, since it's UEFA regulations (every ½ season) and UEFA demand to recive the final "facts and figures" from DBU by the end of the month...

Also, Herfølge can surely still make it... Today they beat FCN, while Randers lost 4-0 to AGF Aarhus...

Herfølge BK - FC Nordsjælland 1-0 (1-0)

The other Superliga clubs all got their license....

Herfølge got their act together just in time to get the Superliga license for next season, also allowing them to sign new contracts in the summer... However, they ofcause still need to save themself from relegation ....

Herfølge administration sacked !

The Herfølge board have axed the intire administration... Herfølge director, Torben Kristoffersen, Sports director Per Rud and the rest of the administration have been handed their dismissal notice and by August 31 ther are no longer an administration in Herfølge..

"The board are probably doing this to make the best of the situation in connection with the negotiations of a future merge [with Køge]. It's a tough business, but perhaps the timing is not all that good. From my point of view, it would have been nice if they had waited until after the last game." says the axed Sports director, Per Rud, to the newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

It's no secret that the Køge Chairman/owner (and former Chairman of West Bromwich Albion and Herfølge), Clive Stapleton, want a merge between the two neighbour clubs Herfølge and Køge.

In 2002 the rich English Businessman lost the power struggle in West Bromwich. He then "fell in love" with the Danish Superliga club Herfølge and saved them from bankruptcy, taking some young talented West Bromwich players with him as well... Ther were big plans of a merge between the two neighbour clubs Herfølge and Køge, but again director/Chairman Clive Stapleton lost a power struggle, this time in the Superliga club Herfølge, and instead he took over as Chairman/owner of the neighbour 1st Division club...

Clive Stapleton later axed the Køge club director Morten Eskesen and head coach John Tune Kristiansen, replacing him with the 29-yo youth coach from Manchester City, Greg Rioch, as manager... Køge is in 4th place in the Danish 1st division at the moment...

Herfølge is now relegated with 1 round remaining of the Superliga. At the same time the management's in Køge and Herfølge have agreed to a merge and have now asked the Danish FA (DBU) for their approval and also a dispensation, so that they can merge at the end of this season.. This dispensation, however, will not be easy to obtain...

How this will effect Charles Gbeke, I'm not sure. I dont know when his contract is due to expire, but if they are allowed to merge almost straight away, then it's certain that it is to be the much bigger club Køge being in charge and deciding which players are useful and who will be send packing... Køge have several foreign players as it is, and they are one of the top teams in the Danish 1st division, so I guess atleast ½ the Herfølge team will be axed...

Charles Gbeke has returned to the Toronto Lynx.
July 19 2005

Quote:
Striker Charles Gbeke has re-signed with the Toronto Lynx following a season with Herfølge BK in the Danish Superleague. After Herfølge's relegation to the 2nd Division, Gbeke received his release and trialed with Croatia giants Dynamo Zagreb, before returning to the Lynx last Friday.

Gbeke spent part of the 2004 season in Toronto, appearing in 16 games and scoring 6 goals, second most on the team. The big striker from Abidjan, Ivory Coast is the natural goal scorer that the Lynx have been searching for since a trade sent Ali Gerba to the Montreal Impact back in May.

Gbeke's presence has already had a positive impact on the Lynx. He scored 20 minutes into his debut on Saturday, July 16th versus Seattle, helping the Lynx to their first home win of the season. Gbeke is a well traveled player, with stints with the Vancouver Whitecaps and Seattle Sounders in the USL First Division, as well as French First Division Club Trois in 1999-2000 and Comercil and Matsubara of the Brazilian Second Division in 2000-2001 and 2002-2003 respectively.

Lynx head coach, Hubert Busby Jr. became familiar with Gbeke's talent during the 2003 season as the head coach of the Ottawa Wizards of the CPSL. That season, Gbeke, started in all 18 matches for Wizards scoring 10 goals. Thus far their reunion with the Lynx has been a success as Gbeke's goal helped the Lynx improve to 2-8-5 this season, Busby's first as the Lynx head coach.
