Trust Response Re Clement 23:23 - Dec 20 with 724 viewsDan_Swan

Trust Response to Paul Clement Departure

Dear Dan
The following statement is being issued in response to the decision to part company with Paul Clement
The Swansea City Supporters’ Trust has backed the Club Board decision to part company with Swans Head Coach Paul Clement. It expressed its disappointment that things had not worked out this season for Paul but, with the Club firmly at the bottom of the Premier League it understood the Board’s concern at recent results and the need to turn things around sooner rather than later.
The Trust’s Supporter Director Stuart McDonald has been in discussions with key personnel over this issue during the last 24 hours and fully supported the decision announced earlier this evening. He said ‘Paul took on the Swansea job at a particularly difficult time and no one will forget his efforts in leading us to ‘The Great Escape’ last season. The team has not performed well this season however and ultimately the Swans Board has to take tough decisions in the longer term interests of the Club.
He added ‘The next appointment will be made at a crucial stage of the season and it is important that the right person is chosen with our football ideals in mind and they are provided with every support from all levels at the Club. ’
The Swansea City Supporters’ Trust wish to place on record its thanks to Paul for his time in charge at Swansea and sends him our best wishes for his future.

Still following Dr's orders!

So if McDonald has "been in discussions with key personnel ( interesting choice of wording there) over the last 24 hours, why didn't he find time to speak to the rest of the Trust Board about it?

I wish to place on record my utter distain for the trust.

""Although I cannot promise or predict the future, I can guarantee one thing - the current board of directors will always fight, as we have done over the last 12 years, to work together as one with the Supporters Trust to make 100% sure that Swansea City football club remains the number one priority in all our thoughts and in every decision we make."

The PR ‘machine’ of the Trust moves like old people f**k........very slowly.

"Yossarian- the very sight of the name made him shudder.There were so many esses in it. It just had to be subversive" (Catch 22)

Is it possible to table a motion of no confidence in the Trust Board? It's nothing personal to the individuals involved, just some seem way out of their depth!

Confidentiality, Loose Lips? I don’t know, but It’s only fair and decent that someone in Paul Clements (and his coaching teams) position get to hear the bad news first and not third hand.

That said, if there has been dialogue, then the Trust should have had a contingency in place and been ready to go with their own statement within a short space of the main announcement.
