Barnsley Football Club is located in the South Yorkshire town of the same name. Their nicknames are Tykes (a nickname for people living in Yorkshire) and Reds, and the club was founded under the name Barnsley  St. Peter's and play at the Oakley stadium since 1888. They are currently in the third ranking of the English football leagues- League 1. For the past two decades, the club has had its highs and downs. In the 1996-97 season, for the first time in their history, they played in the strongest league in England, but held only one season. In the 2006-07 season they reached the FA Cup semi-finals by throwing Liverpool to Enfield 2-1 and Chelsea 1-0 (they played in the Championship then). They dropped out of Cardiff City 1-0.

Last season 2017-2018 they played in English Championship. Their manager was the Portugese Jose Morais. It was a season to forget for them and their fans because they finished on 22 place and were relegated to England League 1. The manager Jose Morais was immediately fired.

A number of menagers including Nigel Clough, Simon Grayson, Mick McCarthy, Gareth Ainsworth, Danny Cowley, Academy boss Bobby Hassell and, perhaps surprisingly, former boss Paul Heckingbottom, were linked with the job. But on 6 June 2018 the job was given to Hanover's former manager Daniel Stendel. His goal this season is clear. He should promote the team in the second English league the Championship.

Stendel is former German football player and manager. He was born on 4 April 1974. Barsley is second club that he manages. Previosly he was manager of Hannover 96 in German Bundesliga. He was appointed there on 3 April 2016 in hope that he will help the club to stay in Bundesliga 1, but he failed. Neverless he keep on his job and he was manager of Hannover 96 and the next season in German Bundesliga 2 but he was sacked on 20 March 2017. His record with Hannover 96 in 34 matches is 17 wins, 9 draws and 8 loses.

It was a little surprising his appointment as a Barnsley manager. This is an entirely new challenge for him. On his appointment he said: “I am very happy to join Barnsley Football Club and I am happy with the faith, trust and belief shown to me from everyone here in advance of me starting the role, I've got the view that the way in which I want to reach success, is mirrored by the people in charge. That is really important and made my decision an easy one. It's really important to want to be successful, but if you only want to be and don't have a plan of how to be, it won't work. At Barnsley there is a plan, that is very clear and it becomes a pathway to success”.

This season in English League 1 after 9 rounds Barnsley is on 7th position with 15 points but with 1 game less than the others, has 4 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat, 15 goals scored and only 5 received. At home they have 2 wins and 2 draws, the only defeat is against Coventry. With the games they shown, they are definitely one of the top favorites for promotion this season to Championship.
