Issue 2: – 31st August 2012

Due to a bad Friday last week, when the OFM DT Journal office melted under the pressure of finalising stories, this issue had to be delayed until today and was missing last week. However, we’ve upgraded our equipment, and are now up and sprinting quicker than Usain Bolt!

Anyway, here’s what’s been going on in everyone’s favourite Crew

Members of Honour

Well, several Crews have a list of their members of honour, and now OFM DT does so too on their Crew page.
The first 4 ex-members to make it into the prestigious list are: Bigkahuna, Paolo Zangoria and Tha Frey. I’ve known each of these managers and have seen them do superbly in this crew, so it’s only fitting I say a few words about each of them

Ben (Bigkahuna) was a member of OFM DT from 23rd July 2008 until 2nd April 2009. That may seem a relatively short period of time, but in that short space, he was 2nd in his first ever Crew league before going on to win 4 consecutive Crew Leagues. Unfortunately, after his 4th demolition of his fellow crew mates, his interest in OFM started to fade, however he left on good terms and should he ever want to return to OFM properly again, he is more than welcome to re-join the Crew

Paolo Zangoria was one of the first members of OFM DT, who joined around January 2008. Although not entirely active in the Crew Forum, he gave 100% to the Crew and stayed with us for 14 Crew League seasons, before unfortunately calling time on his OFM career, which meant his OFM DT membership was over too. Unfortunately, he’s made no comeback to OFM, but has rightfully earned a place in the OFM DT Member of Honour roll

Geoffrey (Tha Frey) was OFM DT’s top dog in both ranking and forum activity for each of the 3 years and 7 months that he was in the crew for. He always brought his friendly side and good humour to the crew forum, through thick and thin. As well as that, he won the Crew League for the first and only time when it went to Argentina (with Colon Santa Fe, a goal 10 team) and also won a Crew League Cup in Peru with Union Comercio (another Goal 10 team). There’s a lot to say about Geoffrey, but we hope we’ve not seen the last of him and hope the financial situation improves soon so he can return home

Mr. Paolo was another livewire on the Forums. Although he joined us fairly late in his OFM career, he still had a high Forum activity and had several chats with all of the members. We often laughed at his shenanigans, and have also shared some personal moments with him. We will never forget you Mr. P

More managers will be added in the future, so keep your eyes peeled for more names to join the Honour Wall

CCL Update

Unfortunately, we lost to Os Navegadores by 828 points. Therefore, we finish bottom of Group L, with a “goal difference” of -3183. The final standings of Group L are

1st were Romanian Pwners with 9 points and 1910 goal difference
2nd were Storm Knights with 6 points and 1760 goal difference
3rd were Os Navegadores with 3 points and 518 goal difference
4th were OFM Dream Team with 0 points and -3183 goal difference

So yes, not exactly a great CCL for us, but we’ve learned several lessons along the way and will hopefully come back stronger than ever. We are going to do some battles before now and then, so keep your eyes peeled for updates. Good luck to Pwners, it’ll be nice to see the team from our group win the CCL, as then we can say we lost to the very best

CWT Update

Gary has seen a string of good results lately and, in addition to the victories mentioned in Issue 1, he won vs sillykid of Elite Slayers, tve-nl of Golden Legends, Pinkeye13 of Dracula RO Land, Mister Lorkano of the Bloody Alboz, and Dennis S Bergkamp of the Revolutionists.

The victories mean that Gary has achieved his goal of 7th with 7 wins, no matter what happens in the last match which gets played tonight. Unfortunately, he cannot catch 6th, however achieving the goal is no easy task and all of OFM DT is proud of their moderator


On this deadline day for all the teams in Europe, we’ve had a transfer of our own. Unfortunately, it’s not a new arrival, but the departure of Mr. Paolo.
Paolo was always a good laugh and a chat on the forums. His mere presence heightened the atmosphere of the Crew. Unfortunately, we only welcomed him to the family in the twilight of his OFM career, but Paolo still tried his best to have lots of friendly chat with Geoffrey (Tha Frey), phoxy and Jor Muller as a result of their history together. However, these chats often roped in the other members of the Crew!

So sorry to see you leave us Paolo, and we know you said that this is for good, however you will be welcome back to OFM DT should you take managing seriously again

In Other Business

– Jor Muller gained 2827 points with his Djurgadens team in Sweden, coming 3rd and winning the Cup!

– Gary Gomes gained 2908 points with his UCD team in Ireland, coming 2nd with them


That’s all we have time for in this issue. Join us next week for more news from the OFM DT hub! Until next time, this is Wally Jones, OFM DT chief journalist, signing off!
