It’s certainly a left field appointment and an interesting one at that. He’s coached at Wrexham, Liverpool prior to taking over the Academy worked for the FA and then went on to manage their Under 16 and under 17 sides.
I don’t really know what to make of it all, he’s not managed anything but kids, but some of those he’s been involved with are very bright young talents. I am hoping that he will work with the youngsters and also show a keen interest in how the Academy is being run.

I really hope he’s given some backing and support, expecting him to do it with just kids is a big ask. Let’s hope those who are in our academy will be spurred on by this, and, some of the big teams will be prepared to trust him with their talents on loan.

We once had a manager who looked after Cradley Heath. I'll leave you work out the rest.

TBH I'd rather see him taking over the academy and let Toshack take over the senior team. Toshack's influence coincided with improved results when he assisted managers in the past and has worked with players who are nearer senior standards than Cooper.
His attitude strikes me as being like Bradley but a bully with it - OK for kids but grown ups?

Couldn't we just employ Frank Burrows and get him to stare at Kaplan and Levien until they fück off ?

Just an idea.


I remember years ago sitting near the dugout and he put a sub on but someone took the wrong player off.

He stared deathly at everyone for 10 minutes with a face like thunder. Everyone was frightened to shift ! 🤣

Jenkins, Morgan, Dineen FECK OFF NOW I !!!

Who else wants the job? Nobody! He’s the best choice , a young manager with a lot to prove. It’s the kind of appointment we are renowned for making let’s get behind him.

The only thing they'd have added to the process is the fee for their first class tickets each way. Leave the f*ckers where they are and let Birch sort their mess out, I say


This ^ big style.

Leave birch and the new manager to make the football decisions.

There is no way Cooper would walk out of England U17s for the Swans Academy.

“Ever since they started to offer free coffee in here it has been like a bloody soup kitchen.“



I genuinely heard this 2 women conversation behind me in a queue in Lidl:

'How's you new car?'
'oh, It's great'
'We're thinking of getting a new one, Derek fancies one of them 'Kwosh Kways' [phonetic spelling]

I actually laughed out loud and the guy on the checkout was still giggling as I was walking away.

In Birch we have no option than to trust I suppose. Didn't he ensure we funded our academy status (not sure what exactly)? Ties in with Cooper's appointment perhaps.

It stabilises the club, which is good, and I for one hope Birch is in it for the longer game, given his shares in the club (I understand that's part of his contract?) and expectation to see those shares increase in price. Every new season brings challenges - can't wait now actually.

Maybe Cooper is an easy / cheap option.
If the club is up for sale, new owners may want to bring in their own manager and it will be easy for them to dispose of Cooper if he is not the man they want.
