Whatever the merits or otherwise of Laudrup's tenure and of those before him and since, watching the Swans during 2012 and 2013 is without doubt the pinnacle of my 60 years of football watching and no arguments about personalities or who did what will ever change that because that level is unlikely to ever happen again in what's left of my lifetime.

At the time it felt like we needed to as we’d lost focus on the league and were getting in a bit of trouble. It felt like he had to go, and there was a lot of agreement on that which people seem to forget.

But I’m as convinced now as I was then that we’d have had better chance if progressing in the Cup if we’d kept him.

The problem is not that we replaced Laudrup. He had a long track record of going off the boil in season two and falling out with club owners. He was entirely on schedule with us.

The problem is that we replaced him with an egotistical amateur and gave him free reign to start ripping up everything good about the way we played.

I have to agree here, for me best football of 35 years watching the swans. I remember being disappointed at the time, but reading here that we were being walked in to relegation, I just checked up on the results preceding his sacking. On bbc it says when we appointed Monk, swans were 2 points off the relegation and had lost 6 in 8. Looking at the results, they included Man U, Spurs, Man City Chelsea and Everton. OK we had got results in lots of those games, but we were also in the middle of the Europa cup. Didn’t Birmingham get relegated the year they were in it? This could have been a distraction.

So if it didn’t end well, and we were looking poor, I think there were mitigating circumstances.

For me I will remember with great fondness Michael Laudrup time with us, it was a shame it ended.

Irony is that he wasn't easy to control. The total opposite.

Not denying that's why he got the job (Jenkins surely must have thought after years of being his spy in the camp Monk was someone naturally subservient), but after finally backstabbing his way into the manager's role, Monk's ego certainly wasn't going to let him be Huwbert's poodle.

Had a worse relationship with Jenkins by the end than Jenkins did with Sousa apparently.


Well that's something we can give him credit for i suppose?

Michael Laudrup's dismissal as manager of Swansea City in February 2014 was due a conflict of interest with his agent taking a cut from transfers, according to El Mundo.

The newspaper reports that that Laudrup's agent Bayram Tutumlu pocketed €4.3 million (£3.6m, $4.6m) from seven signings made through him by Swansea between 2012 and 2014.

Tutumlu charged a high commission percentage, to be paid from the total agent fees, when players that Laudrup requested were signed by the South Wales club.

El Mundo, using information taken from an article published on Danish newspaper Politiken, one of their partners, claims that Tutumlu agreed a contract with an unnamed Spanish agency and earned €1.6m (£1.35m, $1.7m) from the transfer of Alejandro Pozuelo from Betis in July 2013.

The Spanish playmaker, now at Belgian club Genk, joined Swansea on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

When Swansea discovered the secret dealing, they sacked Laudrup and also severed ties with Tutumlu due to the conflict of interest.

El Mundo reports that on Feb. 13, 2014, a letter obtained by Football Leaks from an unnamed Swansea director to the League Managers' Association stated that: "We believe that if BT [Bayram Tutumlu] was not involved in a player's transfer, ML [Michael Laudrup] would reject the signing. We continue to investigate."

That last bit is hilarious. If David Ngog was the calibre of player they were trying to get the club to sign, of course Laudrup would be against it.

We would be comfortably mid table with Joe Allen and Brendan Rodgers

Monk took a sledgehammer to them. Warning sign for me was the pre-season friendly v Real Betis they dismantled us but we looked as if we had forgotten how to pass and keep possession another warning was the 0 - 1 win up in Hull we looked as bad as Hull were at the time and they were relegated.


It was Villareal wasn't it? They gave us a real lesson.

Yep. Sadly his grinding his way to a good league position (and it was) blinded many to what was going on.

I get loads wrong on here (and in life generally), but I’m proud I moaned like feck about the lack of style under Monk at the time. It’s my greatest ever achievement! I hated watching us camped on the edge of our 18 yd box that season. That’s when we changed from having belief we could take the game to anyone, to being submissive underdogs.

Laudrup on 13:08 - May 8 by Drizzy

He signed one 20-goal-a-season player. His second window consisted of Pozuelo, Vazquez, Canas and Amat. The only true success from that window was Bony, a signing that was reportedly Jenkins, and Laudrup had no idea how to use him. Bony played three full league games in the first four months of the season.


Laudrup wanted Aubameyang that suited the fast free flowing play; unfortunately Aubameyang wanted to play Champions League and went to Dortmund.
So Bony it was.
Would Bony have been such a success if Michu had not gotten injured?!

Question is why was Michu run into the ground when Bony was available.

There's no reason why they couldn't have played together. If memory serves Michu scored more goals when he played in midfield anyway. The rarity of occasions when the two of them played at the same time was one of the big disappointments of Laudrup's second season.

We had lots of injuries in that time too, and they were just getting back to fitness as Monk took over
