Aalesunds FK is a Norwegian top league football club from the beautiful coastal city of Ålesund. They play in orange with blue trimmings, the tango colors were chosen because of the city's continued trade with South America and other southern countries.

The club has a rich history all the way back to 1914, but the club has never had as much success as in the 21st century, and there's no doubt that the best is yet to come. The 2008 season is looking very promising, with several high quality new players, and a highly respected new coach.

The 2008 season is starting today, in a record early start for Norway. At Ullevaal, Norway's national team stadium, Vålerenga IF is taking on Aalesunds FK. Can't wait.

Shame about the loss in the first game, would have been great if you got a point from VIF. Brown did very well though.

Squad:

Keeper Age Nationality Seasons
1. Sten Grytebust 19 Norwegian 1
Talent, has played for youth national teams.

12. Andreas Lie 21 Norwegian 5
Lie already seems to have a long career behind him, having played whenever Brown has been injured, and let's be honest, there's never a season without it. Has played several matches for the Norwegian U21 national team.

24. Adin Brown 30 American 4
One of the pillars of the team, and a player with a huge personality. As a supporter, it's not difficult to appreciate the big yank. Highlights include several memorable saves, training naked and other pranks, and scoring the equalizer at the end of added time against Rosenborg last season.

Defense Age Nationality Seasons
3. Haraldur Freyr Gudmundsson 27 Icelandic 4
Solid and sturdy, tough, and loved by the fans. Halli has played nearly every match since he joined the club. He lacks some pace, which often sees him in tight battles with quick opposing strikers, to prevent them from running away from him. If he'd been faster, he would have played in the Premier League.

4. Benjamin Kibebe 27 Swedish 2
Kibebe is fairly quick, has got a nice balance, and a good understanding of the game. Had a very good season in 2007.

15. Gustave Bahoken 29 French / Cameroonian 4
The kind of back that can play all over the field. I've often thought he's been too risky in his defensive work, but he's got something special. Technique out of this world, and a way of mixing that with speed, that can give him amazing momentum going forward (to give excellent assists), or of appearing on the line to save the ball after a 50 m sprint and a long sliding tackle.

16. Enar Jääger 24 Estonian 2
Estonian national team player, Enar is solid and trustworthy. Best as a defensive back, but can also be useful on long runs into attack.

23. Thomas Gjørtz 24 Norwegian 2
Local boy, who been out on loan several times, and has fought desperately to get into the starting eleven. However, he never seems to get all the way.

26. Jonatan Tollås 18 Norwegian 1
A player for the future, Tollås has the build of someone who can grow into a fantastic central defender. The number one talent from Ålesund city of last years junior team.

Midfield Age Nationality Seasons
2. Amund Robertsen Skiri 30 Norwegian 8
Central defender and defensive midfielder. Skiri used to be considered one of the best central defenders AaFK had ever had in his first spell for the club. In VIF and after returning to AaFK he has played more as a central defensive midfielder. Now Åkeby is planning on using him in defense again. He's not big, but he's a tough fighter, yet always fair. Tough to meet on the pitch, easy to cheer for.

5. Erlend Holm 25 Norwegian 8
Holm, Fagermo, Dos Santos, Austnes and Fredriksen. AaFK seemed to have a very strong midfield a few seasons ago, now two of those have retired, Austnes has left, and Holm plays on the left back. How things change. He showed amazing promise when he was picked for the Norwegian U21 national team some years ago. Has had a fine career, but has struggled to play on his favorite position in midfield these past couple of seasons, and has not quite achieved the status and high set of performances that was expected of him.

6. Øyvind Gram 23 Norwegian 1
Winger that joined this season. Hasn't quite lived up to his potential the past couple of seasons, and hope that AaFK will be the club he's been looking for. An interesting player that seems to have few unique abilitites, but yet appears to be good at almost anything.

7. Trond Fredriksen 31 Norwegian 9
A fantastic fighter, that always is the hardest worker when he plays. Has a defensive mindset, some lack of pace, and originally struggled to get used to top league football. Mixed with his love for and loyalty to the club, his hot temperament on the field, and his pleasant personality off the pitch, he has become a hot topic of discussion among AaFK fans. At the moment, he seems to be more out of the starting eleven than he has ever been before in AaFK.

10. Johan Arneng 29 Swedish 1
Strong balance, great passer, captain of the team, biggest star. Lots of definitions that fit Arneng. AaFK fans hope the Swede will lift the team to new heights in 2008.

18. Karl Oskar Fjørtoft 33 Norwegian 4
The maestro of the midfield with a rich and long career behind him. Personally I feel like he's lost much of his touch, and is too weak in duels, but I hope Fjørtoft proves me wrong, and once again sends some of his beautiful passes.

19. Peter Orry Larsen 19 Norwegian 2
Amazing talent, that seems like a near complete midfielder already. Lots of fans expect to see Orry Larsen get a lot of playing time as this season progresses. The 2007 season was ruined by an injury. Captain and main star of the Norwegian U19 national team.

22. Denis Selimovic 29 Slovenian 2
Defensive midfielder from Slovenia. Received a lot of praise after he was bought last season, but never got to play much. The new coach also gave Selimovic praise at first, but now the midfielder once again seems to be struggling to win a place on the team.

Attack Age Nationality Seasons
8. Tor Hogne Aarøy 31 Norwegian 8
The big guy, on well over 2 meters. In practice he's great with the ball, but can appear clumsy or misplaced in matches. However, when you least expect it, there he is dominating a match, sometimes by playing, more often by scoring vital goals and defending on defensive deadballs. Vital player.

9. Pat Noonan 28 American 1
The American winger has played several national team matches for the USA, and is known for being a very offensive player, that can also play as a striker. Like a Lasse Olsen with less speed but more technique.

11. Thomas Pedersen 22 Norwegian 4
Local boy from Ålesund, who never seems to get his big break. Has been in the senior squad for several seasons now, under three different coaches, but hardly gets any playing time.

14. Jonathan Parr 20 Norwegian 2
Norwegian U21 national team regular, both as a striker and as a midfielder. He's very good with the ball, and has every chance of becoming a complete player. However, he's not there yet.

17. Lasse Olsen 35 Norwegian 5
The quick winger and striker was a huge name in Norway 10-15 years ago, and only came to AaFK at what seemed like the end of his fine career. Now he's a veteran even here, and has scored several important goals in his AaFK career. Whether he will get to play a lot this season remains to be seen, as he currently seems to be chosen mostly as a striker, and also seems like the fourth choice there.

21. Alexander Mathisen 21 Norwegian 1
Norwegian U21 national team regular starter. In a surprise move, Mathisen came from VIF ahead of this season. The Oslo team had just bought two national team midfielders, and Mathisen decided to find a club where he was given a bigger chance of becoming a starter. He's known for his superb stamina, giving everything the full 90 minutes.

25. Diego Silva 23 Brazilian 2
Like a diamond uncut, Silva occasionally shows the predators skills, the technique and the dribbling skills of much more prolific goal scorers. He's still fairly new to Norwegian football, and AaFK fans hope he will grow to become a star in Tippeligaen.

Razak Pimpong Ghanaian 1
A former national team player from Ghana has seen his career have a little slump these past couple of years. He was in the Ghana 2006 World Cup squad (and received a penalty against the USA) and played for FC Copenhagen that same year after a transfer from FC Midtjylland. He scored the deciding goal in the Royal League final that season, and was considered a hot target of even bigger clubs. But after failing to become a big success in Copenhagen and later in Viking in Norway, AaFK coach Åkeby has seen something, and decided to take a chance on the striker. He's still only 24, strong, experienced, lots of technique, hard worker, good passer, but even more than Silva he lacks the predator skills in front of goal.

AaFK had a poor season premiere in Oslo, when they lost 1-0 to Vålerenga, after a 73rd minute Morten Berre goal. The first half saw only one AaFK chance, and about a hand full for the home team. The second half was a major improvement, but once again something seemed lacking. On the goal, Berre tricked Halli, as he twisted around to send the ball past Brown. In extra time AaFK should have been awarded a penalty, as Fredheim Holm took down Jääger. No doubt about it. However, a draw would have been too good after such a poor performance, and since the referee refused to blow for a penalty, that's how the match ended.

Arneng and Aarøy were injured, and as a result, the midfield couldn't keep the ball in the team, and the attack seemed to have no plan at all. Brown, Jääger, and Kibebe all played really well, Halli only made one real mistake, and even Holm was decent on his left back position. The wings (Mathisen and Parr) worked hard but got little done, while Skiri and Fjørtoft was unable to do anything in midfield, a poor midfield combination.

AaFK started with: Brown, Jääger, Kibebe, Gudmundsson, Holm, Mathisen, Fjørtoft, Skiri (Orry Larsen), Parr (Gram), Silva (Olsen) & Pimpong

AaFK will play against Brann today, and will most likely start with this team: Adin Brown - Enar Jääger, Benjamin Kibebe, Amund Skiri, Erlend Holm - Alexander Mathisen, Johan Arneng, Karl Oskar Fjørtoft, Jonathan Parr - Diego Silva, Tor Hogne Aarøy.

The squad is now injury free (all are eligible to play, but Arneng barely made it back in time), with Arneng and Aarøy looking set to start the match. Hopefully that and the home field advantage will sway the match in AaFK's favor. The big shock is that Halli has been put on the bench, so that Kibebe and Skiri will be the two central defenders. This is probably because Brann's strikers are fast, and Halli's pace could be a problem.

What a difference a week makes! Amazing match by AaFK today, as they cruised by Brann. Even if the score was close at times, there was no doubt about which team had the momentum and deserved all three points.

AaFK: Adin Brown - Enar Jääger, Benjamin Kibebe, Amund Skiri, Erlend Holm - Alexander Mathisen, Johan Arneng (Denis Selimovic), Karl Oskar Fjørtoft, Jonathan Parr - Diego Silva (Razak Pimpong), Tor Hogne Aarøy.

It was obvious from the first minute that the home team was going to give everything to win this match, but few could have predicted the fireworks that followed. After 23 minutes, an excellent Jonathan Parr fought and fought to get control of the ball at the edge of the box, and finally stole it away from the Brann players and sent a pass backwards to Arneng, that was a clever decision. If you saw Gerrard's work on Liverpool's goal against Arsenal in the Champions League this week, this reminded me of that. First Arneng twisted and turned to fool the opposition, before he ran headlong into the box, sent a short pass to Fjørtoft, who flicked it back in a true one timer combination. Arneng touched the ball lightly, before he placed it perfectly at Diego Silva's feet. The Brazilian could no nothing else than score from 5 meters out. Perfection.

Several promising chances followed, and not until the end of the half did Brann start creating a pressure. They had been on some quick counter attacks, but those usually ended with Solli being too slow and running with the ball from his wing position and into the middle of the pitch, or with Vaagan Moen having a bad touch. Djemba was strong, but seemed to be turned away from the AaFK goal most of the time, and Helstad must simply have been stunned by the poor performances from his team mates. In the 44th minute, Brann did manage to equalise. Vaagan Moen sent a shot into a pack of 14-15 players, and it reflected into two AaFK players, first Skiri, and then Parr. Brown had no chance to stop it.

20 seconds into the second half, a Silva/Aarøy combination resulted in Aarøy scoring from the 16 meter line. The Brann defenders looking at each other, not quite knowing who to blame. Four minutes later, Amund Skiri headed in an Erlend Holm corner, for 3-1, as he was left standing all alone at the back post. When Kristjan Ørn Sigurdsson of Brann received his second yellow after 65 minutes (for two bad tackles), things seemed very bright for AaFK. But this was actually when the best Brann period started. Robbie Winters came in, and seemed unable to do anything wrong. Every touch was golden, and when he also scored the 3-2 goal on a header from a corner, one can ask why he wasn't there from the beginning. This was the only time Brann managed to fool Brown though, as the American was as solid as always, never losing control.

AaFK still seemed in control, and in added time, a Parr/Pimpong combination, sent Parr through on goal. At the very last second he sent the ball sideways to find Selimovic, the Slovenian did nothing wrong, and cool as a cucumber, he sent the ball hard into the back of the net. That's how the match ended, 4-2 for AaFK.

Best performance ever by the home squad!! Excellent play by all of the tangoshirts, scored six of six goals, two own goals was a bit of bad luck really - the last Brann goal was actually headed in by Aarøy, but what the heck - we won!!!!

Aarøy claims that he did not touch the ball at all. Nevertheless, it would have been a goal whether he did or not, as Winters' touch was the ticket, therefore, not an own goal.

Viking - AaFK - 2-1

Exciting match yesterday. It was in many ways a mixture of the first two matches of the season. We played with the same starting lineup as against Brann, but still had to play most of the match without Aarøy (like against VIF), since he got injured early. The players showed much more guts and will to win than they ever did against Vålerenga, but the home team still had more chances. The first goal of the match was a beautiful AaFK goal (like against Brann), and we were robbed of a point at the very end of the match, when the referee failed to blow for a penalty (like against VIF).

Despite the Viking coaches explaining at half time how they had dominated the match, it was clear to most, that the chances had been about evenly distributed. Especially Diego Silva had an inspired match, and could easily have netted a few. Aarøy dominated when he was on the pitch, but his replacement Pimpong, failed to live up to the hype once again. Viking should be credited as well, they played well, and had a high amount of possession. For them Martin Fillo always seemed like a threat, and only bad luck prevented him from scoring.

In the 43rd minute, AaFK had a brilliant counter attack brutally stopped, when Silva was run down by a defender storming the other way. While the tackle was not dangerous, it was very rough, and Silva would have been alone with the goal if he had gotten past, a red card could have been considered. The following free kick was beautiful by Erlend Holm, who sent it flying over the opposition wall and into the top near corner of the goal.

However, it was the second half and the referee that stole the headlines. In the 56th minute, a penalty was given to Viking. Skiri who had an excellent performance in central defense, stood shoulder to shoulder with Allan Gaarde, as the two pushed at eachother. Skiri had an arm tight into Gaarde's chest. After the match, even Gaarde had to see the tape twice, to even realise what the referee had blown for. The penalty was converted by Nikolai Stokholm.

A bit later, Benjamin Kibebe made a big mistake, as he cleared a cross straight into the bar, and Viking's Velicka could easily sent the ball into the net for 2-1. Fair enough, we'd gotten a very rough penalty against us, and an unlucky goal, but especially the latter happens to any team, and even if there had been big chances to both teams, Viking had been the best team. However, when at the very end, a long cross was about to hit Arneng's head on the 5 meter line, Velicka clearly and deliberatly handballed, by punching the ball outside. A corner was given to AaFK, but no penalty. Incredible.

Noonan made his league debut without impressing anyone. Hopefully we haven't seen the best of him yet.

AaFK: Brown, Jääger, Kibebe, Skiri, Holm, Mathisen, Fjørtoft (Selimovic from 68'), Arneng, Parr (Noonan from 61'), Silv og Aarøy (Pimpong from 34')

Aalesunds FK - Hamarkameratene

This seemed like on the most important must win matches of the season. We all hope that AaFK will fight for glory at the top of the table, but history has shown us that it's a difficult place to get. Therefore, the main priority at the start of the season is to get as far away from the bottom teams as possible. But who are the bottom teams? Is it the team that's bottom of the league after three matches, even if they have several stars and are predicted to finish near the top? Or is it the teams that have the smallest budgets, least famous players, came from division one last season, and are predicted to struggle to avoid relegation? Clearly the latter. Ham-Kam is such a team, which is why AaFK had to win at all cost.

Aalesund started with nearly the same team that beat Brann, with one exception, captain Johan Arneng was injured. In his place, club veteran and local boy, Trond Fredriksen got his first minutes of the season. For the first 20-30 minutes, he was tested, over and over again. The teams were fairly even, as AaFK struggled to grab the momentum.

Just past the half hour mark, Diego Silva was played free by Aarøy, and as he was storming in on goal, he was brought down by the last defender. A clear red card and penalty, which the referee gave without a doubt. Silva missed the following, but from here on out, it was all about AaFK. Minutes later, Fjørtoft sent a precise long ball, straight on the head of Aarøy, who easily headed it in for 1-0.

Now it was Ham-Kam's turn to get a penalty, when a clumsy five-a-side type football by Aalesund in front of their own goal, saw Erlend Holm lose the ball and take down a Ham-Kam player. Another penalty was missed though, and again Aarøy scored just after a penalty. A corner from Holm hit Aarøy's head for 2-0.

The second half saw Aalesund play football in style, and an away team that had given up. Fjørtoft sent Silva through on goal, and the Brazilian made it 3-0, at the very start of the half. A third penalty was converted by a brilliant Jääger, and in the dying minutes of the match, Aarøy secured a hattrick, after a cross from Pimpong.


AaFK - HamKam 5-0 (2-0)
10.660

Goals: 1-0 Tor Hogne Aarøy (34), 2-0 Aarøy (43), 3-0 Diego Silva (47), 4-0 Enar Jääger (pen. 52), 5-0 Aarøy (87).

Aalesund: Adin Brown - Enar Jääger, Benjamin Kibebe, Amund Skiri, Erlend Holm (Haraldur Gudmundsson from 74.) - Alexander Mathisen (Pat Noonan from 61.), Karl Oskar Fjørtoft, Trond Fredriksen, Jonathan Parr (Razak Pimpong from 67.) - Diego Silva, Tor Hogne Aarøy.

Not a very good match today, as AaFK lost 2-1 away to Bodø/Glimt. In the first half, AaFK were the better team, with at least three decent chances. In the 36th minute, Silva had a shot from 10 meters that was saved by a superb Londak in the Bodø goal. Sadly the second half was as poor from AaFK, as the first had been from the home team. There were few big chances, but Brown had to be a lot more active in this half. In the 48th minute Trond Olsen shot from 18 meters through a packed box. Brown must have been blocked, because he should have been able to have taken that shot, but instead it flew past him. AaFK slowly worked their way into the match, and after Parr had come on and created some motion in attack, Pimpong ruined it all by clumsily taking down Runar Berg in the penalty area. Martins had no problems making it 2-0 on the following penalty. After two more substitutions, with Noonan and Fredriksen coming on, AaFK finally dominated the play again. In the 79th minute, Arneng played well to Silva, who in turn, turned and twisted past the Glimt defense, ran a full 10-15 meters, before he connected with the shot. Brilliant, 2-1. Glimt did their best to let time pass from then on, but AaFK managed to get to a couple of big chances, but Parr's pass to Silva rolling in front of goal in the 89th minute, was not enough, as Silva was tackled at the crucial last second. Disappointing loss.

Aalesund: Adin Brown - Enar Jääger, Benjamin Kibebe, Amund Skiri, Erlend Holm - Alexander Mathisen (Jonathan Parr), Karl Oskar Fjørtoft (Trond Fredriksen, Johan Arneng, Razak Pimpong (Pat Noonan) - Diego Silva, Tor Hogne Aarøy.

Disappointing performance by the boys in orange today I thought , the second half was just piss poor, if you pardon my French...We had initiative and control of the game in the first half, but opened lousy in the second, and never quite managed to come back until maybe the last ten minutes or so...

- hopefully Silva will find his "last touch" somewhere though.... If that guy had had just a bit more luck, he'd be the top scorer for us already, creds to him for an amazing performance with his goal today though - that was an excellent goal!!

Hoping to see some more guts against Lyn at home a week from today!!

AaFK - Lyn - 0-4

A dreadful result and a poor match. That's the only logical conclusion after yesterday's match. But if the 5-0 win against Ham-Kam may have been more than we deserved, that goes double for this match. Certainly no one would have guessed on such a big loss halfway through the first half. A fairly even match by that point, had seen AaFK with the bigger chances. A Jonathan Parr shot hit the crossbar, and Alexander Mathisen was pushed away by the keeper, when he was centimeters from putting the ball into the net.

Two unnecessary penalties for Lyn ruined the match for the home team, first when Johan Arneng brought down Theodor Bjarnasson on the far end of the penalty area, and later when Kibebe brought down a speedy Kim Holmen storming on goal. Red card for Kibebe, and two penalty goals for Lyn and Espen Hoff.

The second half started a bit tense, but a slight optimism seemed to flow through the players and audience for a few minutes, until Skiri made the blunder of a lifetime. Instead of AaFK scoring, it was Lyn that came forward on the counter attack. When Lyn's Hoff got the ball too far ahead of him, Skiri was controlling the ball as it was rolling out. Too slow to react, and poorly placed, Skiri was left looking the clown, when Hoff stole the ball just as it was about to roll out, and easily sent it past Brown from close range. Even the fourth goal came after a mistake, as Arneng and Fjørtoft, fumbled the ball in midfield, setting up a four against two situation for Lyn, who once again could do nothing but score through Kim Holmen. The rest of the match was forgettable, much like the match itself.

Lineup:
Brown, Jääger, Kibebe, Skiri, Holm, Mathisen (Noonan), Fjørtoft (Fredriksen), Arneng, Silva (Orry Larsen) & Aarøy.

After a fairly even start, where none of the teams had shown much, it was mistakes that brought the start of another embarrassing defeat for AaFK. First Arneng created an unnecessary free kick from 18 yards, which FFK sent flying into the net, after a poor defensive wall, crumbled when the shot came flying in between FFK players. Minutes later, Lie dropped the ball after a long cross, and the home team's Jóhannsson was there on the rebound. At this point Aalesunds seemed to crumble, and with three - nil from the same man before half time, all hope was lost. After horrible performances from Noonan and Fjørtoft, they were taken off the pitch. Their substitutes did better, but could not prevent AaFK losing 5-0 in the end, after two more defensive errors led to FFK goals. Now I just want to forget this match ever happened.

Lineup: Lie, Jääger, Skiri, Gudmundsson, Holm (Parr from 25), Mathisen, Fjørtoft (Fredriksen from 46), Arneng, Pimpong, Noonan (Silva from 46) & Aarøy.

Results so far this season:

29.03 kl 19.00 Vålerenga - Aalesund Ullevaal Stadion 1-0
05.04 kl 19.00 AaFK - Brann Color Line Stadion 4-2
13.04 kl 18.00 Viking - Aalesund Viking Stadion 2-1
20.04 kl 18.00 Aalesund - Ham Kam Color Line Stadion 5-0
27.04 kl 18.00 Bodø Glimt - Aalesund Aspmyra Stadion 2-1
04.05 kl 18.00 Aalesund - FC Lyn Color Line Stadion 0-4
16.05 kl 18.00 Fredrikstad - Aalesund Fredrikstad Stadion 5-0
26.05 kl 19.00 Stabæk - Aalesund Nadderud Stadion 2-1
01.06 kl 18.00 Aalesund - Strømsgodset Color Line Stadion 3-1
08.06 kl 16.00 Lillestrøm - Aalesund Åråsen Stadion 3-0

The last three matches showed a vast improvement on the last few matches before those. All three goals against LSK came at the end, the match against Stabæk was close throughout, and Aalesund got a deserved win against SIF at home. Hopefully the break will do the team good, and AaFK will get their traditionally good autumn.

Which player? :)

Was the same week in an week out for years. Some seasons and some periods I was inspired and wrote well. That's also when the response was best. However, while discussing AaFK is always fun for me, it started feeling too much like routine posting on Xtratime, and when my writing suffered from it, and I also got less and less feedback, I decided to stop.
