olof watch

A way to divert from the agony of following the VIlla is to follow the fortunes of IF Brommapojkarna, a small club in the Swedish third division (ground capacity 7,500). They keep on playing through the summer, and their manager is Olof Mellberg, aged 38 and starting his managerial career the old way. So far its been interesting.... Five games, four wins and a draw. No point in making any predictions, but top of the league, Goal Difference Plus 7 and 13 points, and the next four clubs have all got nine points each.

The legend that was Olof the Nordic God continues. Lets hope he builds on his good start.

He looks even harder in that picture than he did when he was with us. I wouldn't pick a fight with him.

We should get a pre season friendly arranged now that all our usual haunts are direct competitors.

One day he'll return.

Surely there's someone in our squad now with his mentality? What a man he was for us, in Villa dream team(of my age) I'd put Laursen sweeper with God and Mellberg centre halves cos Mellberg and Laursen is hard to split for me.
Grealish I do believe has the fight for Villa in him just he got no focker to back him up, at the moment.

Wouldn't want him - purely because every defeat would be a dagger in the heart and if it ended in tears that would be awful, I love the bloke but no - there'd just be too much riding on it.

Same. Don't need the modern Villa tainting the legacy of the likes of the viking.
