Ah the mighty Wilson.

Anybody remember him?

Later became Alf Tupper

Jolly, I strongly suspect that at this moment you are under the influence of some sort of substance.

Tabs up?

Only us and Donny to go and he's got the full set of Radio Sheffield clubs.

I remember the Tivoli serenading him when he was manager at Swindon with a chorus of "He took Wednesday down he took Wednesday down, he took Wednesday, he took Wednesday, he took Wednesday down" followed by cheers.

This was quickly followed up by a chorus of "He took Barnsley down, he took Barnsley down, he took Barnsley, he took Barnsley, he took Barnsley down" followed by more cheers.

To be fair to Wilson he took it in good spirits and was laughing along with us.

Nice footballer...

I think that he was a transfer target for Jimmy McGuigan, but he moved somewhere else instead (Brighton ?)

He's certainly got experience with over 1,000 games in management winning around 40% and losing 34%.

He was just starting his playing career 76/77 when Jimmy McGuigan was in charge at Millmoor so it was more likely Emlyn or George Kerr who were looking at him when he went to Forest then Brighton in 83 from Chesterfield where he played 100 games..

You're probably right CAM, I didn't check the exact dates...but I do remember reading in the Green 'Un, back then, that we were trying to sign him...no Millersmad back in those days to supply reliable information, we had to rely on John Piper
