GET WELL SOON, SHELBIE<br />

Everyone at <strong>Barnsley</strong> Football Club<br />

would like to send their best wishes<br />

to 10-year-old Shelbie, who was<br />

recently diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy.<br />

After spending Monday in hospital,<br />

brave Shelbie was determined to go<br />

and watch the Super Reds play in the<br />

Carabao Cup at Bolton Wanderers,<br />

where she had her photo taken with<br />

Romal Palmer.<br />

She is here at Oakwell this afternoon<br />

on the front row in the East Stand, so<br />

smile and wave if you see her!<br />

Get well soon, Shelbie!<br />

Lots of love, from everyone at<br />

<strong>Barnsley</strong> FC!<br />

The Head Coach<br />

MARKUS<br />

SCHOPP<br />

6<br />

Hello Reds fans,<br />

Here we are. After what I am sure feels like an<br />

eternity for so many, I am delighted to be in a<br />

position to welcome you back home, to Oakwell.<br />

Everyone associated with <strong>Barnsley</strong> FC are well<br />

aware of how the last 18 months has impacted<br />

so many people, mentally, physically and<br />

emotionally. Many within the Club have gone<br />

through difficulties too, but today is all about you,<br />

returning to your matchday routine, seeing those<br />

familiar faces and cheering the lads on to what we<br />

hope will be a big three points!<br />

I cannot continue these notes without thanking<br />

you for the warm welcome I received since arriving<br />

in South Yorkshire. Whilst I wasn’t able to see<br />

supporters during pre-season, the reaction at<br />

both Cardiff and Bolton was worth waiting for. I<br />

am delighted to be a member of the <strong>Barnsley</strong> FC<br />

family and I will give everything for you and this<br />

great Club.<br />

When a new coach arrives with slightly different<br />

ideas and ways of working, that initial transition<br />

period is always difficult, but I’d like to place on<br />

record my thanks to all involved at the football<br />

club, as since I arrived, focus, determination and<br />

commitment of all staff has been unquestioned.<br />

As we move forward into the new season, I look<br />

forward to getting to know everyone at Oakwell.<br />

On many counts, we’ve had a positive preseason.<br />

It’s been great to integrate with the<br />

first team staff in place. There is a fine mix of<br />

experienced coaches, like Kevin Pilkington, Joe<br />

Laumann, Tonda Eckert and Matt Cook, who<br />

have been around the game, at a high level, for a<br />

considerable amount of time, pooled with young,<br />

motivated professionals looking to make their<br />

mark. Together, that combination makes for a<br />

progressive working environment, which will only<br />

stand us in good stead for the season ahead.<br />

Working in England has always been a dream of<br />

mine. I have experienced so much in my career,<br />

playing alongside some wonderful players for<br />

club and country, coaching some real talent, but<br />

England is the motherland of football. I am well<br />

aware of the passion fans have for their clubs here,<br />

it’s truly different to any of the other places that my<br />

footballing journey has taken me so far and I can’t<br />

wait to hear 13,000+ fans cheering the Reds on!<br />

Of course, we will play to win this afternoon.<br />

Three points are important, but at this stage of the<br />

season, the performance is also significant. In our<br />

two games so far this season, we have had positive<br />

moments. Of course, we are disappointed to have<br />

exited the Carabao Cup so early, but every day, I<br />

am learning about this team and the individuals.<br />

We may not have been clinical, and suffering with<br />

the chances that we missed, but I cannot question<br />

the lads’ commitment and energy.<br />

The intensity of our schedule here is immense<br />

and we’re already on to our third game of the<br />

campaign, against a good <strong>Coventry</strong> <strong>City</strong> side. No<br />

game in the Sky Bet Championship will be easy<br />

and for this team to reach its goals, we must be<br />

at 100% all of the time. Mark Robins, who I know<br />

enjoyed a period of time in the home dugout here,<br />

will have his team firing, after their positive result<br />

against Nottingham Forest last weekend… but it’s<br />

up to us to stop them.<br />

All that is left for me to say is thank you again for<br />

your support, stay safe and enjoy today’s game!<br />

All the best,<br />

Markus<br />

The Captain<br />

CAULEY<br />

WOODROW<br />

Hi Reds,<br />

Well, what a day this is. After 18 long<br />

months, you’re back home, where you<br />

belong.<br />

I know that we have all been<br />

impacted by this pandemic in some<br />

shape or form. There will be regular<br />

faces missing from their seats today.<br />

We will take a moment prior to kick-off<br />

to remember those that are no longer<br />

with us, which of course includes<br />

the great Eric Winstanley. The word<br />

‘legend’ is overused these days, but<br />

to the region of South Yorkshire, he<br />

epitomises it and will be truly missed.<br />

Since we were all last together at<br />

Oakwell, so much has changed!<br />

As you all know, we enjoyed a<br />

tremendous season last time out,<br />

exceeding everyone’s expectations. Of<br />

course, it wasn’t the same without you,<br />

but now, we have the experience and<br />

knowhow and we will do everything<br />

we can to replicate it this time round.<br />

Players and staff have been and<br />

gone, but now, with the gaffer, we<br />

have a fresh start. We’ve got some<br />

new bodies in who really complement<br />

the group, and I’m looking forward<br />

to what I’m sure will be a successful<br />

season.<br />

This season is a little extra special for<br />

me, as, during the break, the gaffer<br />

had a number of conversations with<br />

me and decided to make me captain.<br />

I feel like I’m a professional and a<br />

leader regardless, and that goes for<br />

others in the squad. It won’t change<br />

how I play, but I can’t lie, I did want the<br />

armband and I’m honoured to lead<br />

out this team and represent the club in<br />

the best possible manner.<br />

I’ve had some great times at the club,<br />

from promotion to staying up on the<br />

last day and of course last season was<br />

great and shows that we’re making<br />

positive steps forward as a club.<br />

To make these steps, points must be<br />

accumulated and we want to continue<br />

that today. We were disappointed<br />

not to progress in the Carabao Cup,<br />

but coming from behind in a place<br />

like Cardiff was significant and proof<br />

of our togetherness and strength of<br />

character. Today’s test will be difficult,<br />

<strong>Coventry</strong> are a good side and started<br />

with a great result last week. We have<br />

worked hard and understand what<br />

we need to do to come away with our<br />

first three points of the campaign.<br />

I’m sure you’ll back us from the first<br />

minute. The atmosphere during that<br />

play-off game against Swansea<br />

was incredible and I know that was<br />

only 4,000 of you. All of the lads are<br />

genuinely so excited to get out in front<br />

of you again and hear 13,000+ at full<br />

voice!<br />

Enjoy the game and stay safe!<br />

Cauley<br />

Giving Football Back to<br />

Small Business<br />

At eBay, we know small business and<br />

football clubs used to be like chips and<br />

gravy, two peas in a pod – a match<br />

made in community heaven.<br />

Ironmongers, ship workers, spring<br />

makers and cobblers, all formed clubs<br />

which decades later are still prospering.<br />

But nowadays, you’d think it was all<br />

eyewatering transfers, Super Leagues<br />

and mega sponsors, detached from the<br />

humble origins of our historic clubs.<br />

That’s why eBay are proud to support<br />

300,000 small businesses who help<br />

power EFL clubs nationwide. We’ll be<br />

donating our advertising space to a lot<br />

of these businesses – on match day<br />

hoardings, around grounds and beyond –<br />

throughout the coming season, to ensure<br />

they can continue to thrive in our local<br />

communities. So, join us in giving your<br />

support to Small Business Power, because<br />

today, they need us more than ever.<br />

The Big Interview<br />

MICHAŁ<br />

HELIK<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME


t’s only fitting that the first cover star of<br />

our new campaign should be the man<br />

who was voted as your Player of the<br />

Year for his magnificent debut season<br />

last time out: Michał Helik.<br />

The Polish centre back, in his first full season<br />

in English football, was a colossus as <strong>Barnsley</strong><br />

reached the Sky Bet Championship playoffs<br />

and almost pulled off what seemed the<br />

impossible dream when we got underway back in<br />

September.<br />

Despite having a shorter pre-season than the rest<br />

of his teammates due to his Euro 2020 exploits<br />

with Poland, which we will cover in depth later in<br />

this interview, Mich still managed to hit the ground<br />

running in our opening day draw at Cardiff <strong>City</strong>.<br />

“I feel good – I feel ready,” he asserted, as we sat<br />

down following a recovery session the day after<br />

our trip to South Wales. There had been plenty<br />

of stretching, massages and ice baths to ensure<br />

Michał is in top condition for our Carabao Cup<br />

clash with Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday evening.<br />

12<br />

“Of course, that was the first pre-season in my life<br />

that was this short. The first game went alright,<br />

but we will see how it is in the future. But I think<br />

I did a lot in that pre-season, even in the three<br />

weeks and I feel ready for the season.”<br />

First games of the season don’t come much<br />

tougher than the Bluebirds away and both<br />

sides will probably be happy with a point in an<br />

encounter where either could – and perhaps<br />

should – have snatched all three.<br />

It marks more progress for the Reds, however, who<br />

were dismantled 3-0 on their last trip to the Welsh<br />

capital in November. An indication of just how<br />

much self-belief there is within that dressing room<br />

and a never say die attitude.<br />

“Last season was tough; an awful game away<br />

from home against Cardiff,” recalled the Pole. “It<br />

shows that we are on a good way as a team and<br />

I think it’s a good result. Of course, we require more<br />

from ourselves for the future.<br />

“We came from behind many times last season,<br />

so we have in our minds now that we can do it<br />

and we know how to do it. Of course, it’s not our<br />

plan to go 1-0 down from the beginning and we<br />

need to avoid these mistakes and open the game<br />

from our side and not start 1-0 down.<br />

“I think it’s a fair result if you look at the game. But<br />

I think we have the feeling we should perform a<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME<br />

little bit better to earn the three points from there<br />

and we have the capacity to do it, so we require<br />

more from ourselves to win those games in the<br />

future.<br />

“We need to respect that point because it’s our<br />

beginning as a new team with a new style and<br />

new gaffer in the new season. Cardiff is a really<br />

tough place to play and a very good team – a<br />

very physical team and very strong in the setpieces.<br />

Overall, it’s a good start for us.”<br />

A good start indeed from an outing where we<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY


13<br />

looked comfortable in possession, created several<br />

goal scoring opportunities and Brad Collins<br />

channelled his inner Ederson Moraes (giving us<br />

palpitations in the process).<br />

It’s a sign of things to come from the Reds, who,<br />

under Markus Schopp, will focus on ball retention<br />

and look to break down the opposition with<br />

intricate pass and move, while also providing a<br />

threat on the counter-attack.<br />

“It’s a different style from last season but we<br />

also don’t just want to play in front of our goal,”<br />

continued Mich. “We try to find a balance to<br />

play in front of our goal to keep possession and<br />

make our action faster and stay vertical to the<br />

opponent’s goal, so I think our style now is to find<br />

a balance between a vertical game and having<br />

balanced possession.<br />

“I think everyone enjoys it when you have the<br />

ball – you don’t need to run against the ball.<br />

But, of course, being in possession is also a lot<br />

of running because you need to always make a<br />

solution for your partner to play and to help each<br />

other.<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME


14<br />

“For me, I’m the type of player who is not moaning<br />

about playing out of possession because I like<br />

to steal the ball, recover the ball and make<br />

interceptions. Of course, I like to play with the ball,<br />

too, so it’s a good way to find the balance.”<br />

Although he has only worked with our new Head<br />

Coach for a short period of time so far, Mich is still<br />

keen to learn as much as he can from someone<br />

who played at the highest level in the game.<br />

Markus was capped 56 times by Austria and also<br />

played in the German Bundesliga and Italian<br />

Serie A, so has plenty of knowledge to pass onto<br />

our young, talented and ambitious group.<br />

“I think the new gaffer has very good relations<br />

with us and it’s so important for the club,” insisted<br />

Michał. “I think he’s a really good person – we’ve<br />

not known each other for a long time, but my first<br />

impressions in the first few weeks, to work with<br />

him is a pleasure.<br />

“I know that me personally and us as a team<br />

can learn a lot from him – we want to learn his<br />

philosophy and try and put it on the pitch.<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY


Kyle McFadzean struck a 96th minute winner as<br />

the Sky Blues returned to their <strong>Coventry</strong> Building<br />

Society Arena home for the first time since April<br />

2019.<br />

Mich knows only too well the threat that Mark<br />

Robins’ side pose as <strong>Barnsley</strong> suffered a 2-0 defeat<br />

when the two teams met at St. Andrew’s towards<br />

the end of last season, but believes the Reds are<br />

optimistic heading into this encounter.<br />

“Of course, we respect every opponent and our<br />

mentality is to fight in every game for three points,”<br />

he stated. “This game will be special for us because<br />

it is the first time in the new season in front of our<br />

own fans so, for sure, we feel that we need to go for<br />

a win in this game.<br />

“I don’t think about last season so much because<br />

we should forget about it and fully focus on this<br />

one. My biggest motivation from the game last<br />

season is that it’s our game in front of our fans<br />

at our stadium and the first after a long period<br />

of time. Of course, we had the game against<br />

Swansea in the play-offs, but it was just 4,000 fans<br />

and not the whole capacity.<br />

“That’s my motivation. That we should perform<br />

well and win for ourselves. It doesn’t matter which<br />

team comes to Oakwell; we should be confident<br />

and try to win every game.”<br />

As Michał just alluded to, there will be plenty of<br />

Reds fans coming back through the turnstiles today<br />

as we play our first home fixture of the campaign.<br />

15<br />

He had a taste of the <strong>Barnsley</strong> faithful back in May<br />

and was full of praise for the 900 or so who made<br />

the long trip to Cardiff last weekend.<br />

“It was an amazing atmosphere to be honest – I<br />

didn’t expect it when I heard that 4,000 were able<br />

to come. I was thinking it’d be OK but 4,000 is a<br />

small part of our stadium, so I didn’t expect such a<br />

good atmosphere, but it was great.<br />

“Unfortunately, the result was not brilliant, but the<br />

atmosphere was one of the best I’ve played in.<br />

“The first time I heard his surname, I checked<br />

everything. It’s a good thing and easier to step<br />

into the dressing room when the gaffer has the<br />

experience on the pitch. He played with a lot of<br />

big players in big tournaments, and we have full<br />

respect for him and his football career and we will<br />

try to learn from his experience as much as we<br />

can.”<br />

This afternoon’s opponents, <strong>Coventry</strong> <strong>City</strong>, will<br />

arrive at Oakwell full of confidence following<br />

their dramatic opening day victory at home to<br />

Nottingham Forest last weekend.<br />

“It’s totally different to play in front of the fans. I<br />

enjoyed it a lot and everyone wants to play in front<br />

of supporters in stadiums – it’s difficult to play in an<br />

empty stadium but we had to do it for a long time.<br />

“It’s something new, now, to play in front of<br />

fans and it was such a good feeling – especially<br />

because there were a lot of our fans in Cardiff and<br />

you could hear them from the pitch. It was a really<br />

good feeling and I’m looking forward to seeing<br />

them at Oakwell.”<br />

The departure of Michael Sollbauer means that<br />

Michał is the elder statesman of our backline at just<br />

25-year-old.<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME


With that comes additional responsibility to guide<br />

his younger teammates through games, but our<br />

towering defender takes it all in his stride and<br />

believes it is everyone’s job to show leadership at<br />

times.<br />

“It’s very strange,” admitted Mich. “I didn’t expect<br />

it to happen so fast in my life, but I’m one of the<br />

oldest ones here. It doesn’t change anything, to<br />

be honest. Even when I was younger, I always felt<br />

responsible for the team and the results.<br />

“Whether I’m a natural leader or not, it’s hard to<br />

say that about myself – I think you maybe need<br />

to ask some of the other players. Of course, I try<br />

to help every player that I am playing with, but<br />

I don’t think it’s leadership – I think every player<br />

should do it.<br />

“If Jasper or a younger player needs to say<br />

something about the communication on the pitch,<br />

that can also help me. So, it’s not about being<br />

younger or older, it’s all about taking responsibility<br />

for the team.<br />

16<br />

“I think I still need to learn in every game and<br />

every session, and I am trying as hard as I can. But<br />

I have more knowledge about the league, about<br />

the players and I have more experience of the<br />

playing style of each club at this level. But there<br />

are still things to learn and improve on.”<br />

He certainly adapted quickly to the rigours of<br />

English football. After being dismissed on his<br />

Championship debut at Reading, Mich went on<br />

to exorcise those demons and took his game to<br />

the next level with an incredible campaign for the<br />

Reds.<br />

Those performances didn’t go unnoticed and<br />

the national team eventually came calling in<br />

March as our defender represented his country<br />

for the first time in a World Cup qualifier against<br />

Hungary.<br />

His form was good enough to see him make<br />

the 26-man squad for Euro 2020, a tremendous<br />

achievement for our centre back, who continued<br />

to go from strength to strength.<br />

“It’s a big feeling for me to represent my country,<br />

to be part of the team at the tournament and<br />

to train for one month with top players from<br />

top clubs in the world,” reflected Mich. “It’s a<br />

big experience; I learnt a lot and I hope I have<br />

the opportunity in the future to play in the big<br />

tournaments because, as we know, I didn’t play<br />

any minutes.<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME<br />

“Of course, it’s a big experience but, if you are there,<br />

you want to play and it’s normal that I have this<br />

feeling. I wanted to play, but I am happy that I am<br />

part of the national team and I will try to do my<br />

best for the club to be part of the national team<br />

again.<br />

“It’s a proud moment for me and a big responsibility,<br />

and a pleasure to be part of the team.”<br />

Poland were drawn in Group E alongside Slovakia,<br />

Spain and Sweden as they aimed to reach the<br />

knockout stage of this tournament for only the<br />

second time in their history.<br />

However, they got off to the worst possible start with<br />

defeat to Slovakia in their opening game before<br />

salvaging a point against Spain in their next outing.<br />

Victory over the Swedes would have guaranteed<br />

qualification and, despite going 2-0 down,<br />

a Robert Lewandowski brace gave Poland<br />

optimism before Viktor Claesson’s 94th minute<br />

strike ended the Eastern European nation’s dream.<br />

“It was a big disappointment for us but, as I said<br />

to the Polish press, I didn’t play any minutes so it’s<br />

hard for me to say something about the team and<br />

the results,” said Mich.<br />

“Of course, I feel part of that team and take<br />

responsibility, but it’s not my place to speak about<br />

the results. We know that we should perform<br />

better, but it’s too late.”<br />

Perhaps one of the down sides to international<br />

football is the sheer volume of travelling<br />

involved, but it is something that the players get<br />

accustomed to eventually.<br />

In ordinary times, it might be a more enjoyable<br />

experience, but with restrictions and guidelines<br />

now in place because of the pandemic, the whole<br />

situation is more regimented than it ordinarily<br />

would be.<br />

“There was a lot of travelling and a lot of flights,”<br />

explained Michał. “We were based in Poland and<br />

had to travel twice to Russia and once to Spain so,<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME<br />

on the international level, you need to get used to<br />

the fact you need to travel because every game<br />

away is far.<br />

“You need to get used to it and it’s something you<br />

need to accept, but I don’t think about it so much<br />

– it was just a flight the day before, so nothing as<br />

bad.<br />

“It was a little bit tiring with the testing and<br />

controls and Visa checking in Russia, so I think<br />

that’s why England did so well in the Euro’s<br />

our centre back had the task of marshalling him<br />

during pre-match sessions.<br />

“I had a lot of duels in the training session because,<br />

when I was not playing I was in the second XI and<br />

we would play against the first XI, so ‘Lewa’ was in<br />

the first XI and we played against each other,” he<br />

continued.<br />

“I learnt a lot and asked for many things on the pitch<br />

and I tried to take as much as I could from him.”<br />

It all sounds brilliant, but there is also a lot of pressure<br />

on Mich not only to perform to his best in training to<br />

put himself in contention for a start, but to also not<br />

injure their key man before a ball has been kicked.<br />

He admits it is a thought that went through his mind<br />

to start off with, fearing a backlash from the Polish<br />

public.<br />

“At the beginning, a little bit, yes,” he smiled. “Just<br />

before the big games for us, in some duels I thought<br />

if I injure him the nation will kill me. But it was more in<br />

my mind as a joke.<br />

“On the pitch, I was trying to make the game<br />

conditions for him in training to help him prepare<br />

well for the games. So, after the first impressions not<br />

to injure him, I was helping him prepare to do well.”<br />

The first international break of the season will be<br />

upon us shortly at the start of September, with<br />

Poland in action against Albania and San Marino.<br />

19<br />

They will be hopeful of adding to their points tally<br />

when they face Group A’s so-called lesser nations,<br />

but nothing is ever certain – that’s the beauty of<br />

football.<br />

Four points from their opening three group games<br />

perhaps isn’t the start that Poland envisaged for<br />

their World Cup qualifying campaign, however,<br />

there are still plenty of fixtures remaining and Mich is<br />

confident they can secure their place at Qatar next<br />

year.<br />

“Of course, I believe we can still qualify,” he stated.<br />

“I believe in that so much. We will do everything to<br />

achieve that, to go to the World Cup because it’s a<br />

dream of everyone to be part of this tournament.<br />

because they didn’t have to travel a lot.”<br />

He, of course, said that last statement tongue in<br />

cheek. At least we think he did.<br />

Mich often talks about wanting to improve<br />

his game, and what better way to do that by<br />

training with one of the best strikers in world<br />

football?<br />

An icon at Bayern Munich and Poland’s<br />

talismanic captain, Lewandowski is a player<br />

who strikes fear into the heart of defenders and<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY<br />

“I’m not thinking that I’m confident for selection or I’m<br />

afraid I won’t be selected; I’m just doing everything<br />

I can for <strong>Barnsley</strong> every day. The national call is just<br />

a prize for the work, so I am not focussed on that<br />

and trying to be the best version of myself. That’s my<br />

aim and my way to be prepared, and if the national<br />

team coach calls me, I know I’ll be ready.<br />

“It’s a proud moment and a big honour, but also a<br />

big responsibility because you have to represent<br />

around 37 million people. I am doing my best every<br />

day to be part of that team and to be well prepared<br />

for the games also.”<br />

he Sky Blues will have been satisfied<br />

with how their first season back in the<br />

Sky Bet Championship level went. A<br />

final league placing of 16th confirmed a<br />

comfortable return to the second tier after eight<br />

years away.<br />

Indeed, the way that they ended the campaign<br />

saw them as one of the division’s form sides,<br />

winning five of the final eight league games,<br />

including a 2-0 home victory over the Reds. That<br />

impressive finish to last season, along with the<br />

return to the now rebranded <strong>Coventry</strong> Building<br />

Society Arena will have returning supporters eager<br />

to witness in person, the terrific work done by<br />

those involved at the club in recent times, including<br />

former <strong>Barnsley</strong> manager Mark Robins who we<br />

will profile in more depth later on.<br />

The West Midlands outfit were definitely<br />

indebted to a clutch of loan-signings last term,<br />

and Robins moved quickly to bring both Ben<br />

Sheaf (Arsenal) and Viktor Gyökeres (Brighton)<br />

back to the Sky Blues on permanent deals in<br />

July. There have been a couple of experienced<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME<br />

additions to the squad also, with goalkeeper<br />

Simon Moore arriving from Sheffield United on a<br />

free transfer, and in a similar deal, proven second<br />

tier forward Martyn Waghorn adds further depth<br />

to <strong>Coventry</strong>’s attacking options having departed<br />

Derby County in the summer.<br />

Scoring goals was a definite weak area for<br />

them last time out, and the re-signing of Bright<br />

Enobakhare will potentially help the Sky Blues<br />

in terms of creativity and opening doors for the<br />

strikers ahead of him. Still only 23-years-old, the<br />

Nigerian playmaker had a stellar half-season<br />

loan-spell in <strong>Coventry</strong> back in 2019 and he will be<br />

hoping to finish where he left off.<br />

It is difficult to look beyond midfielder Callum<br />

O’Hare when trying to pinpoint the Sky Blues’<br />

key player, particularly after a campaign in<br />

which he scooped the club’s Player of the Year,<br />

Player’s Player of the Year and Young Player of the<br />

Year award! The 23-year-old is neat and tidy in<br />

possession, loves to drive with the ball, but for an<br />

attacking midfielder of his stature, it’s his work out<br />

of possession that makes him stand out.<br />

There was very little to shout about for <strong>Barnsley</strong> in<br />

terms of our pair of meetings with <strong>Coventry</strong> <strong>City</strong> in<br />

20/21. One of the very few clubs we failed to beat,<br />

as well as that 2-0 reverse at St. Andrew’s in April,<br />

the Reds were earlier held to a goalless draw at<br />

Oakwell when only the crossbar prevented Leo<br />

Sky Blues Manager<br />

MARK ROBINS<br />

fter scoring more than a century of<br />

goals as a striker in his playing days,<br />

as well as lifting the FA Cup and<br />

European Cup Winners Cup with<br />

Manchester United, the evergreen<br />

Mark Robins has built an impressive CV since<br />

transitioning to the dugout.<br />

His management journey began at Rotherham<br />

United where he impressed at League One<br />

level, taking the Millers from the bottom of the<br />

table into unlikely promotion candidates before<br />

administration arrived. That saw him leave<br />

United to take the vacant manager’s position<br />

here at Oakwell in 2009, and he quickly guided<br />

the Reds from the bottom of the Championship<br />

to an 18th-place finish. After a similar second<br />

season (17th), Robins and <strong>Barnsley</strong> parted<br />

company.<br />

relegation candidates to play-off contenders. His<br />

work at another financially-troubled outfit saw<br />

Huddersfield Town take a chance on him and<br />

whilst he guided the Terriers to safety, he left the<br />

club in 2014.<br />

A nondescript 18-month spell with Scunthorpe<br />

United followed, before his reappointment with<br />

the Sky Blues. An inspired decision for both club<br />

and manager, as <strong>Coventry</strong> have enjoyed two<br />

promotions and a Football League Trophy win in<br />

the four years since he returned.<br />

Walking into a club that were heading for League<br />

Two in 2017, and steering them back to the<br />

second tier has created Robins a real legacy with<br />

the Sky Blues, and after last season’s showing at<br />

this level, it will be intriguing to see if he and they<br />

can push on further still.<br />

Robins first joined the Sky Blues in 2012 and<br />

became an instant favourite, moving them from<br />

OPPOSITION CORNER<br />

by Matt Whiley<br />

Andy Turner is the <strong>Coventry</strong> <strong>City</strong> reporter for the <strong>Coventry</strong> Telegraph.<br />

We spoke to him to get the lowdown on our opponents today.<br />

What were your thoughts on <strong>Coventry</strong><br />

<strong>City</strong>’s 20/21 season?<br />

Given that <strong>Coventry</strong> had the secondlowest<br />

budget in the division last<br />

season, I thought it was a real success<br />

story for the Sky Blues to finish 16th. It<br />

bucked the trend of teams struggling to stay<br />

up in the Championship or being in a relegation<br />

battle right to the end; we saw how difficult<br />

it can be for sides to stay up with<br />

Rotherham and Wycombe last season.<br />

To actually finish clear with a few<br />

games to go was quite an achievement,<br />

not least when you consider the<br />

backdrop of both the pandemic and the<br />

fact that <strong>Coventry</strong> played home games at St<br />

Andrew’s. All things considered, it was a fantastic<br />

season.<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY


against Forest in his first competitive game as a<br />

fully-fledged <strong>Coventry</strong> player. There’s also Ian<br />

Maatsen, who has signed on loan from Chelsea,<br />

and he looks lively and a good outlet going<br />

forward.<br />

Who are the young players who are highly<br />

rated at the club?<br />

<strong>Coventry</strong> do have a fine tradition of producing<br />

their own players and developing them into first<br />

teamers, and there is a young holding midfielder<br />

called Josh Eccles who has come through the<br />

academy ranks and looks a good prospect.<br />

Unfortunately, he suffered an injury recently<br />

which will put him out of action for three months,<br />

so that is definitely a blow, as, albeit sparingly, he<br />

was in Mark Robins’ plans this season.<br />

There are a couple of others who have come<br />

through, with one being Jack Burroughs. He’s<br />

a versatile wide midfield player who can also<br />

play centrally, and he has been loaned to Ross<br />

County to give him time to find his best position.<br />

There is also a centre-half called Declan Drysdale<br />

who is out on loan too, to Cambridge.<br />

It shows that while there are a lot of players<br />

who might not yet be quite ready to step up to<br />

Championship level, they are still very highly<br />

thought of at the club and are likely to be sent<br />

out on loan to gain experience, allowing them to<br />

bridge that gap from development to first team<br />

football.<br />

27<br />

Do you think there is positivity around the club<br />

when you look at the upcoming season?<br />

What do you make of <strong>Coventry</strong>’s transfer<br />

business this summer?<br />

Martyn Waghorn is the standout, he brings<br />

a lot of Championship experience, and that<br />

ready-made Championship quality and calming<br />

influence was something the club lost when<br />

Matty James departed in the summer. I’m<br />

hopeful Waghorn will be able to replicate that,<br />

albeit further up the pitch.<br />

Someone else who has caught the eye is Bright<br />

Enobakhare, who had a loan spell from Wolves<br />

a few years ago in League One, and he was<br />

absolutely sensational. He’s a bit of a maverick<br />

forward who the fans love, and he returns to<br />

the club this year on a permanent deal with<br />

everyone hoping that he can finally fulfil his<br />

potential to become a top-end championship<br />

player.<br />

Viktor Gyökeres spent last season on loan and<br />

he’s another who has signed permanently,<br />

getting off to a great start last week with a goal<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY<br />

Yes, there is an incredible amount of fan positivity<br />

around the club at the moment, not least with<br />

the fact they have properly returned home to<br />

play in the city this season. Last week’s winning<br />

start was an incredible occasion, with almost<br />

21,000 fans back at the newly-named <strong>Coventry</strong><br />

Building Society Arena.<br />

It really goes to show how much we’ve missed<br />

the fans, and while I don’t think anyone will<br />

expect <strong>Coventry</strong> to be pushing for the play-offs,<br />

the feeling is very much that the incremental<br />

improvements can be made. It’s all about<br />

relative success, which would be a more solid,<br />

comfortable campaign and away from any<br />

concerns surrounding relegation.<br />

There were only three players in the squad for<br />

the game against Nottingham Forest that had<br />

played for <strong>Coventry</strong> in <strong>Coventry</strong> before, when<br />

the stadium was the Ricoh Arena, so it was very<br />

much a new experience for them. I think that<br />

feeling can create a great deal of excitement,<br />

so there is positivity amongst the squad for the<br />

upcoming season too.<br />

Academy Interview<br />

CONNOR<br />

HODGSON<br />

35<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME


36<br />

fter signing his first-year pro contract<br />

this summer, Connor Hodgson is keen<br />

to impress in our U23s side under Martin<br />

Devaney.<br />

The 18-year-old from Monk Bretton has been<br />

part of our academy for 10 years now, gradually<br />

progressing through the age groups, and<br />

particularly caught the eye last term with several<br />

notable performances at both U18 and U23 level.<br />

“I was playing every week for the under 18s and<br />

was itching for a game with the under 23s, but<br />

it didn’t come until towards the back end of the<br />

season,” said Connor. “I think I grabbed it with both<br />

hands, though.<br />

“I prefer to play against players with a bit more<br />

experience because I can kind of learn off them as<br />

well and put what they do in my game.”<br />

He certainly has been learning, not just from<br />

the opposition and his peers, but different<br />

understandings of the game as he showed his<br />

adaptability by featuring in various positions over<br />

the course of the campaign.<br />

A central midfielder by trade, Connor is known for<br />

his ability to link play with his assured passing and<br />

never shies out of a challenge – which is perhaps<br />

why he was tasked with filling in as a left-sided<br />

centre back and at left-wing back on occasion.<br />

Like most footballers, the youngster is more than<br />

happy to step in where required in order to help<br />

the team and he even admits that he could end up<br />

making a natural transition into defence.<br />

“Centre back and central midfield are kind of<br />

similar, but at centre-back you have a bit more<br />

time on the ball and in central midfield you have<br />

a forward and defender behind you,” discussed<br />

Connor.<br />

“At the start of last season, I saw myself as a<br />

midfielder but, now I’ve played over 10 games at<br />

centre back, I feel like I’ve fitted in well there, so we’ll<br />

see.<br />

“It’s a similar physicality with headers and stuff;<br />

obviously you come up against big strikers, but I<br />

think I’m dealing well with it.”<br />

The versatile youngster has had a strong preseason<br />

with Devaney, featuring in every minute as<br />

he builds match sharpness ahead of the upcoming<br />

Professional Development League campaign.<br />

Connor has overcome a slight knee problem picked<br />

up in the early weeks, but he is itching to get the<br />

ball rolling and believes our fledgling group can<br />

give another good account of themselves this term.<br />

“It’s a good group; we did well last year,” he<br />

asserted. “I think, because we’ve all played with<br />

one another for that long, we’ve bonded and you<br />

know your relationships with players.<br />

“I think we can push for the play-offs. Last year,<br />

we were up there and then dropped out in the<br />

last couple of games, but I think we need to get<br />

together and go forward.”<br />

Our U23s are, of course, without a quintet of almost<br />

certain regulars until December, with Jordan<br />

Helliwell, Rudi Pache, Steve Simpson, Charlie<br />

Winfield and Matty Wolfe all gaining valuable first<br />

team experience in Denmark with Esbjerg fB.<br />

It’s crucial for their development and Connor feels<br />

that it can only be beneficial for them in the long run.<br />

“I think it’s a good first loan move, in my opinion,”<br />

he reasoned. “It’s obviously a big step to move to<br />

a different country and different lifestyle, but to<br />

play first team football every day and every week<br />

is really good and I don’t think I could take a bad<br />

thing out of it.<br />

“You’ve got to get experience. I know it’s different<br />

with the leagues and stuff like that but it’s all about<br />

experience in that first team environment.”<br />

One thing missing last season for Connor and his<br />

teammates was a crowd at our Oakwell Training<br />

Ground, with fans unable to attend any fixtures<br />

due to the coronavirus pandemic.<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY


Even at academy level, there is a noticeable<br />

difference on a matchday without the hundred<br />

or so regular faces unable to offer any sort of<br />

encouragement – and they missed out on a<br />

wonderful campaign for our young stars at both<br />

U23s and U18s level.<br />

However, he has had the joy of playing in front of<br />

spectators during pre-season and says it’s nice to<br />

have people watching once more.<br />

“We’ve played a few pre-season friendlies against<br />

Hemsworth and Penistone, and there were a fair<br />

few fans in – a couple of hundred – so it was a<br />

good feeling,” insisted Connor. “You can obviously<br />

hear other people rather than just your team or<br />

the other team.<br />

37<br />

“I don’t really get nervous in front of people, I can<br />

sort of block it out so it just felt like normal to me.”<br />

As you may have noticed, Connor – like many<br />

other of our academy lads – is sporting the Paul<br />

Gascoigne inspired Phil Foden hair style (for want<br />

of a better phrase) following England’s European<br />

Championship exploits.<br />

Grove Street had a pressing question for the<br />

<strong>Barnsley</strong> born and bred midfielder. Are you<br />

sticking with the hair?<br />

“I’m going to have to,” he smiled.<br />

“I can’t shave it off because it’ll look worse – I’m<br />

going to have to keep getting a skin fade then<br />

let it grow through. The roots are coming through<br />

now, though, so I need to get it sorted.<br />

“There’s a few of us have done it. I did it on the<br />

Saturday before the final, and I sent a video to<br />

Marshy and on Sunday morning he sent me a<br />

video of him in the chair with his mum dying his.<br />

Hayden Pickard did his in the early days, too, and<br />

Chaz.”<br />

There we have it, the hair remains.<br />

THE<br />

UNSUNG<br />

HEROES<br />

Neil Richardson<br />

ome might call it a modern injustice,<br />

others see the unsung hero as a<br />

typically good old British way of<br />

knuckling down for the cause without<br />

fanfare; something which seems to be of<br />

huge value to our little island.<br />

Many have been posthumously recognised<br />

for their contributions, albeit too late in some<br />

people’s eyes.<br />

Alan Turing, the man credited with breaking<br />

the enigma code during WWII and ultimately<br />

turning the tide in the favour of the allies. Never<br />

recognised when he was alive due to the<br />

classified nature of his work, disgraced due to<br />

archaic laws, the Queen officially recognised<br />

him in 2013, some 61 years after he died.<br />

Peter Taylor, was Brian Clough’s not so famous<br />

assistant who is generally considered to be<br />

the man that looked after the football while<br />

Cloughie did the man management. With<br />

league championships, league cups and<br />

European cups on his CV, he will always be<br />

recognised as a number 2.<br />

Murdoch from the A-Team, ‘Howling Mad’<br />

as he was known; they had to break him out<br />

of the veteran’s hospital every time someone<br />

found them when no one else could help.<br />

We all wanted to be BA, we wanted to drive<br />

Face Man’s Corvette and make a plan like<br />

Hannibal, but without a spiked glass of milk<br />

and Murdoch’s skills as a pilot, they’d have not<br />

got anywhere fast.<br />

And so that brings me to……….<br />

Josh Scowen. When you play in central<br />

midfield and the other half of your<br />

pairing is Conor Hourihane, it’s always<br />

going to be a battle for recognition<br />

as the great player someone actually<br />

is. Signed from Wycombe Wanderers<br />

with little fanfare, it’s fair to say that<br />

Josh’s main fanbase would be the type<br />

of bloke like my grandad. He showed<br />

himself to be an old school, tough<br />

tackling little terrier in the same vein<br />

as the great Darren Sheridan. In the<br />

2015/16 season it wouldn’t be unfair to<br />

say that he was the second choice for<br />

all positions, never really cementing<br />

a regular place when everyone was<br />

fit. However, his versatility saw him<br />

covering most positions at one point or<br />

another barring between the sticks.<br />

Disgruntled in 2016/17 at the start of<br />

that season by Adam Hammill taking<br />

his number 7 shirt, he would become<br />

Hecky’s first choice to partner Hourihane<br />

over the newly signed Sam Morsy and<br />

George Moncur (to the annoyance of<br />

the latter).<br />

With a young family and a desire to<br />

be closer to his wider support network,<br />

Josh opted to relocate down south, but<br />

will always be very fondly remembered<br />

by the <strong>Barnsley</strong> faithful for his non-stop<br />

effort and bulldog tenacity.<br />

REFLECTING<br />

ON THOSE<br />

WE’VE LOST<br />

head of kick-off against <strong>Coventry</strong><br />

<strong>City</strong> this afternoon, players, officials<br />

and supporters of both clubs will<br />

be asked to come together and<br />

stand for a moment of silent reflection in<br />

memory of all those we have lost since we last<br />

watched football together at Oakwell without<br />

restrictions, back in March 2020.<br />

The coronavirus pandemic has been a long,<br />

challenging and unique period for everyone<br />

across the globe, regardless of football and its<br />

rivalries. We have all been impacted. Family and<br />

friends have been lost to this ruthless virus and<br />

<strong>Barnsley</strong> Football Club has indeed had to say<br />

goodbye to some of its most loyal supporters<br />

over the last 18 months.<br />

43<br />

Today, we will reflect and remember them.<br />

ERIC WINSTANLEY | 1944-2021<br />

Since our terrific fanbase were last together,<br />

here at Oakwell, this Club of ours lost one<br />

of its sons. A <strong>Barnsley</strong> legend in every<br />

respect. The great Eric Winstanley passed<br />

away in May of this year, and our players<br />

and staff wore black armbands away at<br />

Swansea <strong>City</strong> in the second leg of the Sky<br />

Bet Championship play-off semi-finals, as a<br />

mark of respect.<br />

This afternoon is the first game back at<br />

Oakwell since Eric’s passing, and with the<br />

permission of his family, who are in attendance<br />

with us today, we encourage the Reds fanbase<br />

to unite in the 5th minute of the game this<br />

afternoon and applaud Eric Winstanley one<br />

more time.<br />

F team?<br />

In net, I’ll probably go for van der Sar. At the back<br />

John Stones because he’s technical. In midfield I’ll<br />

have Mahrez because he’s got decent feet, then I’ll<br />

have Ronaldo and Messi up top.<br />

is for Guests. Which three people would you<br />

G invite to a dinner party?<br />

it’ll lighten the mood, Jason Manford is<br />

funny too. I’ll say Cristiano Ronaldo as<br />

well, just chuck him in there.<br />

is for Hero. What would your<br />

you could just fly away.<br />

A mobile phone. I’m gonna have to think clever<br />

is for Profession. If you weren’t a footballer,<br />

P what would you do?<br />

I didn’t actually get too bad GCSE results,<br />

surprisingly. I wouldn’t mind going into the sports<br />

science side of things; it’s obviously quite tough.<br />

I don’t think many footballers would think to go<br />

into that, it’s often coaching.<br />

is for Quarantine. Did<br />

Q you do anything new in<br />

Not much really, just a few<br />

home workouts and went<br />

cycling. There’s a cycle route<br />

in Preston called the Guild<br />

Wheel.<br />

is for Retirement. What<br />

R do you see yourself doing<br />

after playing?<br />

Probably go into sports science. I’m<br />

quite big on gym, so I’d maybe go into the gym<br />

industry and do something to keep myself fit.<br />

I used to play quite a lot of cricket<br />

when I was younger and I like<br />

snooker, too.<br />

V What is your<br />

G-Wagon. It’s a high life car, isn’t it?<br />

is for Watch. Can you recommend a film<br />

W or tv series?<br />

I watched Hot Fuzz the other day, so either that<br />

or Shaun of the Dead. Simon Pegg and Nick<br />

Frost together are brilliant.<br />

X Have you ever<br />

broken a bone?<br />

No, but I’ve had<br />

worse. So, no,<br />

touch wood.<br />

is for You. Describe<br />

Y yourself in three words.<br />

Hard-working, committed and generous.<br />

That’s four words?<br />

Z<br />

is for Zombie. What would you do in the<br />

event of a zombie apocalypse?<br />

I’d go home and start barricading the doors. I’d<br />

have been to the shop beforehand and got quite<br />

a lot of soup, I think.<br />

47<br />

is for Travel? What’s your ideal holiday<br />

T destination?<br />

Probably Mykonos. I like Ibiza as well; I’ve been<br />

and punter, Mark Wheelhouse. “There’s lots<br />

of social distancing and they’ve made sure<br />

everything is clean and hygienic – it’s a fantastic,<br />

clean pub. Everything is brilliant!<br />

“There’s nothing they haven’t done to make sure it<br />

isn’t clean and a nice place for us to come.<br />

“Before games, there’s good people in here and<br />

never any trouble and it’s very close to the ground,<br />

so you can come in after the game too.”<br />

Special thanks to the Mount for taking the time to<br />

have us!<br />

MURPHY<br />

ISSUE ONE | BARNSLEY VS COVENTRY CITY<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME


Last campaign was just unbelievable, I’ve got to<br />

say. It was fantastic.<br />

I don’t think supporters, because of the season<br />

before when we fought against relegation,<br />

thought we’d do as well as we did, and credit to<br />

the manager who came in – he saw what we had<br />

and changed the system, not to everyone’s liking,<br />

to the players that he inherited and nearly got us<br />

into the Premier League.<br />

It wasn’t pretty at times, but I tell you what, it<br />

nearly got us there.<br />

To finish where we did finish, I thought it was just a<br />

miracle. It was just fantastic.<br />

It was just a shame that we couldn’t have<br />

supporters in the stadium to watch. To have<br />

people at this club who have been going as long<br />

as I have and not to see the football and success<br />

we had, I thought it was a shame that Covid<br />

came and interrupted everything.<br />

54<br />

But we were still playing football and a lot of<br />

supporters who couldn’t get into the stadium were<br />

pleased that we could still watch it on iFollow.<br />

It’s obviously not the same when you don’t have<br />

the presence of supporters in the ground, but I<br />

thought it was just a shame that we couldn’t go<br />

and show our appreciation for how well the team<br />

did after how good the season was.<br />

And they nearly got us there.<br />

There were a lot of players who impressed last<br />

season, but one in particular caught my eye<br />

because it’s a position I used to play.<br />

I thought Callum Brittain was brilliant all season.<br />

He took to the position at a higher level<br />

than where he came from, MK Dons, up to<br />

the Championship and he was absolutely<br />

outstanding in all of the games he played.<br />

He gave us an outlet on the right-hand side, got<br />

forward well and struck a fantastic ball – and<br />

never wasted a ball, hardly. The full-backs, at<br />

times, don’t get mentioned, but I think the lad<br />

deserves a special mention.<br />

That role has evolved so much since I played.<br />

They’re encouraged to go forward a lot more<br />

now, whereas in my time, we were stopping as<br />

a defender. His crossing is fantastic and, when<br />

he got over that halfway line, he kept going and<br />

going, and he made the position look simple.<br />

GROVE STREET | BARNSLEY FC OFFICIAL PROGRAMME<br />

It’s not a simple position; you’ve got to defend<br />

and get forward – you’ve got to be fit to play this<br />

game. As soon as possession is lost, you’ve got to<br />

get back and start again. That’s what he had to<br />

do, and he did it very well.<br />

Whatever we paid for him, I thought it was a<br />

bargain. He looks the part and I think he’ll go<br />

higher.<br />

This season, we’re playing the same formation<br />

but a different style. I think we’re playing more<br />

football, now, rather than the long ball. We’re<br />

playing through the middle of the park, whereas<br />

before we were getting it forward as quickly as we<br />

could.<br />

I think the supporters will see that and appreciate<br />

55<br />

it. We have the players to do it now – Markus<br />

Schopp has got a lot of very good players who<br />

can play this way.<br />

So, I’m looking forward to being down at Oakwell<br />

in the Legends Lounge every home match and<br />

watching the games, and maybe commenting on<br />

the games afterwards, too.<br />

I’m really looking forward to the season and<br />

coming back because Oakwell has always been<br />

my life and it’s fantastic to be asked to say a few<br />

words in this column. Football has been my life<br />

and <strong>Barnsley</strong> has been my life, and I’m looking<br />

forward to talking to you every home match.<br />
