I'm on holiday in Naples, Italy at the moment. I've just been trying to explain to an old Italian guy that I once saw Naples play at Hillsborough. Can anyone help me, at the end of the 68/69 season (I think) Wednesday took part in the Anglo/Italian Cup and I'm pretty sure that it was Naples against who we played home and away. I was only 8 years old then so I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure it was 0-0 At home and they beat us in Italy. Anyone remember this one?

I take it that the Anglo Italian cup was not success

Intriguing that a team like Swindon Town won the competition , I imagine not all the sides took it to seriously as it was played at the end of the season , bizzarely !

Those were the days when every match was taken seriously No resting players, or squad rotation

Napoli lost to Swindon in the final 1970 , and the Italians didn't  take defeat lightly .

We also played Napoli in 1958 or 1959 in a friendly.  We won 5-0.   

Pretty sure I was at both games.  

We also played Juventus about a year before that.  Think we won 2-1.

Ho visto Napoli calcio contro mio squadra Sheffield Wednesday  molte anni fa.

 

Anche, Paolo do Canio ha cercato per noi.
