Steve Cooper will be announced shortly (n/t) on 10:07 - Jun 11 by monmouth

I’m not criticising the new bloke at all. To be honest seeing the options, it’s all pretty much Russian roulette , so I’m pretty much indifferent.

It’s not like Martinez or Toshack though. Martinez already had mostly everyone behind him and knew what he was working with and Toshack had Shankly. Badlands is right, working with kids and working with first team pros is very different. Best case scenario is that he really can bridge the two. That would be a major win.


It is definitely a risk, same as whoever we appointed. He may get overwhelmed and struggle with the amount of games and dealing with older players.

Then again if he does have what it takes, it will soon show. good points are he is young, will want to prove himself at this level, and will no doubt give it his all to show what he is about.

It would be interesting to know if Birch, Britton and Cutis targeted him, or did Cooper put his name forward, Anyway after all of the interviews, he has made the best impression and they have decided he looks like our best option.

We need to trust is Britton Curt and Birch, that their opinion and first hand knowledge gained from interviewing him is sound. We give him a chance and hopefully be surprised how well he does for us, then start to worry about bigger clubs trying to poach him off us.

I was wondering how many backroom staff from this youtube vid will he be bringing, they look good.

"Don't think Cooper has a lot of charisma and that could play against him."

None of us has seen him in an interview or press conferenc,e as yet - many posters on here (DickyThorpe etc) are taking a lot for-granted about the man.


I've watched a lot of his FA video's and that's my reaction...but I could be wrong

Fair enough but some would see it good if we appointed Jim Jones who is manager of Asda's football team.

Reality of it is none of us know. He’s got obvious pros and cons, as anyone realistic would have.

I’m quite happy with the appointment. I don’t see us going up or down, so playing style is a big factor for me. I hope he has the balls to stick to it if and when we have a couple of poor results.

The "we" appointing this guy are Birch, Leon and Curts. All three are vastly experienced in dealing with managers over the years, both generally and in a Swansea context...I have a feeling they know what they are looking for...and will make a better decision than many a keyboard warrior on here

Hope you are right there and only time will tell.

You'd have to be a particular type of grumpy sod to not want someone you hadn't heard of a couple of weeks ago before even giving him the chance to prove himself.

I'm placing the views of those three above my ignorance, no question.

Yeah but he's cheap, his father is a c*nt, he wore the wrong tie once etc etc etc.

Never mind, at least the wages we save on him, will go to pay Rooneys bonus. Or something just as half witted.

I want a mate like Flashberryjacks, who wears a Barnsley jersey with "Swans are my second team" on the back.

It's disgusting how far we've dropped as a club.

Nice to see you mention my name and debate for a change though.

It's not "disgusting" is it?

It's hardly as if we have done anything differently to dozens of clubs who have come before us.

Good post, too many on here umbrella those being honest and who care with those being just negative for the sake of it.

Bang on Saint. It's a disaster in the making


The more I think about it the more I agree, this strategy is just too risky, if he facks up we've really had it, and with us selling all our best players it just gets worse.

I suppose all they are saying is we are not thinking about promotion, just trying to regain some stability as quickly as possible!

Fair play, that's some assumption. I wonder if his old man was being controversial to attract listeners
