No. He’s a proper legend. Would hate that to be ruined by managing us. 

 

Like Colin & Cwissy down the road? Doesn’t always have to end badly.

Just a couple of snippits seen as the athletic want you to subscribe. It's free for a month if you do try it.

 

“I played for IFK Gothenborg, who always have a very good crowd and fans, so I thought was prepared for it, but Sheffield Wednesday’s fans have an even bigger heart for football than I have ever seen anywhere else.

“It was a special time to play football there. The fans were there every week wherever we played – home or away, they were there and supported us. That was very special, and when you leave that, you feel a loss of something.”

 

For the last two years, Nilsson has been manager of Sweden Under-21s, with his side winning nine of their 14 matches.

 

in form young coach who knows our club??? get on the blower DC. Just incase Bullen doesn't work out.

Could they get him in as part of the team.... IF Bullen gets the full time gig.

Conflicted on this.  For me he is the best player we've had by a country mile.  Would love to see him back, but know what will inevitably happen.

I'd have him as a coach in a shot, as manager? not for me.

Better to have loved and lost, that never to have loved at all. Can't not do something just because of what if.

All managers leave or get sacked eventually.  It would be a massive boost to morale and he’s no mug.

 

Roland and Bully dream team.

What was the real story behind him being homesick?

 

He signed for Coventry a year or two after?

You really don't want to know...

I don't think we need to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

 

Let's just see how we go the next couple of games and take it from there. 

 

Right now we have no visibility of form or pattern.

“At the moment, I’m Sweden’s u21 coach but in a year’s time, you don’t know where you’ll be. I would love to go back to being a club manager but at the moment, I am enjoying what I am doing,” he says.

 

That’s, that then...
