I have to drag some attention to this guy and my Swedish boys from Östersund who, under this man, are doing something pretty epic right now. He’s taken them up 3 divisions in a handful of years to reach the top league in Sweden last year for the first time in their club history, Östersund being a smaller city up north with no notable footballing history whatsoever.
They finished midtable IIRC during the 2016 season (our whole season runs during a calendar year) but won the league cup and earned an early qualification spot in the Europa League. There they drew Galatasaray (some David vs Goliath shit) and beat them 3-1 agg, then some other team I don’t remember which, and then finally they beat PAOK from Greece on pens to make it into the Europa League. They are now at 6p after 2 games in their group, having beat Zorja Luhansk and notable Hertha Berlin.
Östersund is a 50k pop. city with a stadium that takes like 8k people and it is cold as fk there. I did my military service there, the weather there is hilarious, we had snowball fights on our national day (June 6th), it could drop to -30 during the worst winter nights.
That they’ve managed to climb 3 divisions and get to Europe and actually win games there is pretty epic, and a lot of it is probably thanks to this Potter here, who is clearly a wizard of sorts.
