"According to The Athletic , Roland Nilsson is a hot coach in the Championship club Sheffied Wednesday, where he actively dried out for five seasons back in the early 90s."

 

I think I speak for us all when I say how fond I was of his drying out for us.

Has he actually been linked or just asked if he would like to manage us? Big difference.

“Of course, I would love to manage Sheffield Wednesday, it is a great club,” says the former Coventry, Copenhagen and Malmo boss.

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

“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.

I don't care...

The fact that Roland Nilsson and Sheffield Wednesday are used in the same sentence is more than good enough for me...

lol

Considering the drinking culture at the club at that time I imagine he did his drying out after he'd left.

Well it would be a yes from me.

Although he's foreign. He speaks language, he's plenty of experience, knows English football. 

Has managed Swedens u21 sides. 

Will have loads of Scandinavian contacts and hopefully a few still over here from his playing days.

Would be amazing to hear all Hillsborough singing "number 1 is Roland nilsson etc

 

Then "and the boss is roland nilsson"

If he was manager would he also be his own Number 2?

 

He'd be one to eleven (except nine) and all the subs.

What about if he gets homesick? Will he comeback and manage Coventry?

 

Despite this his CV doesn't suggest he should be anywhere near the job.

Maybe it's cos he wasn't required - Hirsty might have been servicing his Mrs.

If he hadn’t played for us then no one would want him as manager at face value. There are better candidates not getting a look in.

Never saw him play.  Cv looks average to poor. No thanks.

I want to say Yes, as he was one my hero's. 

 

But I can't see it being a success...barring the inevitable amazing song....which would be class to hear again!!

Would be a sentiment appointment. Other ex Wednesday players have more experience in management such as Pearson. 

 

I love Nilsson but it’s not the right time for him.
