Mr. Reesh

I'm gonna ask a really silly question!

What are the rules (are there any?) regarding you posting the article on here? Do copyright rules not apply or is it classed as being shared on social media and therefore ok?

I know it happens, somewhat randomly, with other articles whereas at other times it's only a clickable link.

Sorry for being thick!

Just subscribed to their free trial.

The American started sports news thing has began its attempts to corner the UK footy market, they've hired 44 journos from across the top papers, and The Star.

Nancy Frostick is ours, she's done a fairly decent piece on Harris and Murphy today.

She’s a fuckin shambles of a journo and is responsible for some of the worst articles on SWFC whilst at the Star. Queen of the pointless run down lists, shines through that she actually knows very little a about the club at all.

Have you seen the Star, it's like having George Lucas direct Crossroads, you can only fuck with the dick you have.

That rag is on its arse financially so they've nowt but clickbait to use.

You don't have to try The Athletic, you could just come on here asking folk the answers.

I was right about Carlos - you can dispute it if you want but you are wrong

The transfer window this summer is exactly the one that was needed post Wembley

Think I've inadvertently wooshed you, in this particular instance I want to see those posts and I'd be 100% hoping you were right.

I'm from the 'Walkley camp' when it comes to our current 'manager' Wink

Time flies in football’s relentless cycle – a fact that raises a laugh from Roland Nilsson when he is reminded exactly how long it has been since he left Sheffield Wednesday.

This summer has seen the 25th anniversary of his departure from the club, with December marking three decades since Ron Atkinson bought Wednesdayites a special Christmas present in the form of the Swedish defender.

The passage of time hasn’t dimmed fans’ memories of Nilsson at Hillsborough, nor the fondness he has for the club after his successful spell in S6.

After being spotted by ‘Big Ron’ in an international friendly against England in September 1989, a trial stint in the Owls’ reserves would prove the start of a love affair between fans and the full back.

“I always wanted to play in England,” Nilsson tells The Athletic. “I was brought up with English football on the telly, so England was one of the main countries to go to and play football.

“The move first came about when we played an international game against England in Stockholm. I had a good game and I think Ron was watching. After that, he set things going and put feelers out to see if I was interested. He got me to come over and do a week’s trial with them because it was off-season for me, so I trained and played a game for the reserves and it went from there.”

Yet there was another club interested in bringing Nilsson to England – a certain Alex Ferguson was reportedly considering the then-IFK Gothenburg man as a transfer target for Manchester United, but instead opted for Denis Irwin.

The First Division outfits had differing fortunes in the remainder of the 1989-90 season, as United took home the FA Cup while Wednesday were cruelly relegated on goal difference. Quite the introduction to English football, but not the last brush with the Red Devils for Nilsson.

“I knew the situation Wednesday were in when I came over – we were down near the bottom but we got six points to start and were doing well, just above the relegation zone. But then, suddenly things started to go wrong.

“We just couldn’t score goals – we were hitting the bar, hitting the post, opposition goalkeepers seemed to be man of the match in almost every game we played. It was very frustrating.

“We lost at home to Nottingham Forest in our last game of the season, Luton scored right at the end of their game at Derby to go above us, and we were relegated. It was frustrating but the main thing for me was that the club wanted to go straight back up and wanted every player to stay to make that happen.”

Nilsson had offers to leave Wednesday after the drop, but manager Atkinson’s powers of persuasion proved enough to keep the floppy-haired Swede at Hillsborough. His loyalty was justified when the 1990-91 campaign brought not only promotion, but also silverware in the form of the League Cup.

Fate – and overcoming a cruciate knee ligament injury that had sidelined him for a large chunk of the season – saw Nilsson start the Wembley cup final against the very team who had tried to snap him up from under Wednesday’s noses – Manchester United.

The 27-year-old kept boy wonder Lee Sharpe in his pocket for the duration of the game as the Owls battled to a 1-0 win, one that Nilsson says was just a ‘bonus’ in a season that was all about promotion. Wednesday remain the last team from outside the top flight to win a major trophy in England.

Nilsson describes that season as one of the best periods in his career, despite the ‘frustrating’ realities of watching the promotion push unfold from the physio room. Talk of promotion is never far from Hillsborough as Wednesday try to emulate the achievements of Nilsson and co for the 20th year running.

The hunt for a permanent manager in S6 goes on, with a now 55-year-old Nilsson once again mentioned as an option for the post, this time to succeed interim chief Lee Bullen.

“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.

“Football – whether you’re playing or coaching – is a special feeling. As a manager, particularly at the start of your career, you want to be on the pitch to help your players, but nowadays, I am too old to do that! I have been enjoying it in other ways, but the feeling is still there. I still love football, I still love winning, and I love doing everything I can to help the players win.

“When you work with a team, you can help players, you can make them better and you can help them understand what you want from them.”

Nilsson left Wednesday in 1994, returning to his homeland with Helsingborgs amid reports of homesickness. His role in the team – by now under the stewardship of Trevor Francis – was also a factor in his exit.

“Things happen in life and you have to move on,” he says. “I was nearly on my way back to the club in 1996 but the manager [David Pleat] and I couldn’t agree on a few things in terms of how he saw me as a footballer, and I just thought it was better to stay in Sweden.”

Nilsson did return to the Premier League for two spells with Coventry, with those stints sandwiching his third spell at Helsingborgs. He retired from playing in 2006 after two years with Gothenburg side GAIS.

Widely regarded as one of the Owls’ best ever players, Nilsson was the only non-British player to be included in the club’s 150-year anniversary ‘Dream Scene’ painting, which also featured Wednesday legends Terry Curran and Derek Dooley.

Also immortalised on canvas back in 2017 were the Nilsson’s former team-mates David Hirst and Chris Waddle, who the Swede says are among the finest players he ever encountered, citing their pace and one-on-one abilities respectively.

Looking back on those halcyon days as some of the best in his career, Nilsson still feels the pull of Sheffield and of Owls fans, who have been his greatest champions.

“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.”
