Sad that it took an own goal from Cieran Clark to get a draw against the republic - and sorry for Cieran as well - but better news for the Swedes from their third division.

Olof Mellberg has made a decent start to his first managerial job. After 9 games in a 26 game division, his team IF Brommapojkarna (if that is the spelling) are top of the league by four points. Played 6, drawn 2, lost 1. 20 points and a goal difference of +10. Next two teams are on 16.

Early days, but its the way to go. Onward and upward for the next 17 games we hope. Worth keeping an eye on.

Mellberg's one of my all time favourite players, loved the bloke when he was here, he served us well.

Who knows how well his managerial career will go, would be quite cool in 10 years time though him being manager and someone like Laursen being assistant or involved.

i hope Di Matteo will bring in couple of vikings to go with some Italians to replace our fabulous 5.

Yeah, we need a hairy-arsed Viking defender or two, if there's any left in the game.

here is an update on Olof's first try at management. Started well but its got tougher. After 9 games his team was 4 points clear at the top. But dropped points with draws and have been caught up after 14 - half way through their season and with a break till August 21st.

The Table shows the top 4 only separated by 2 points

IF BRom...    p 14   points 29
Vasalund      p14    points 29
Akropolis      p14    points 28
Vastera        p14    points 27
Umea

and I will complete this despite the internet

Umea p14    points 22

Only the top two go up. So Olof has a fight on his hands over the last 12 games of the season.

It looks like 4 teams are in it, so onward to September and whether he can face up to the challenge. Anyone going near that part of Stockholm? I heard there was a villa fan in the area but trail went cold.

Put this in the Mellberg thread in "Villa Memories", but this seems a better place for it...

Mellberg took over last season at Brommapojkarna in Sweden's third tier.

Tonight they beat Dalkurd to clinch a second successive promotion and ensure that they will be in the top flight next season. They've now gone four points clear of second-placed Dalkurd and look in an excellent position to clinch back to back league titles.

They also made the Semi-Finals of the Swedish Cup, defeating four teams from a higher division along the way.

Very impressive start to Olof's managerial career. 👏👏👏

Well done Olof. Next season win the Allsvenskan and next stop is Villa Park.

Yes. There was some talk that he might have to leave when they got promoted last year, as he didn't have sufficient coaching badges, but he's still there so I assume that was resolved.

How good would it be if he was our manager in a few years time.
