Liam Walsh Signs
at 12:40 8 Jul 2021


All those conversations made an impression on Walsh, but he admits it was his discussions with Cooper that made a particular mark as he decided his future.

“It’s been a long summer for me, especially after the way last season went. But everything the gaffer said to me (about Swansea) was exactly what I wanted in a club, and I cannot wait to play in front of the fans at the stadium,” he said.

“I also knew a few of the lads here and they had nothing but good things to say, but I spoke with the gaffer more than any other managers I had spoken to at other clubs.

“The belief he was putting in me, and the fact he has known me from a young age helped me a lot. He knows the type of player I am.

Now a free agent, in advanced talks according to some.

Doesn’t seem like one of our standard signings though so I have my doubts. 29 year old winger.

Probably reading into it too much but noticed Lewis Webb is modelling the new keeper kit with no sign of Benda.

Would that indicate he's off? If so, Woodman back again surely.

And absolute cretins like that Monty weirdo on the other site want to get on the police's back and make their job harder than it already is. Those fellas need an absolute hiding and then chucked in solitary confinement for the rest of their days

Probably a career ender?

Let's get it done for him Saturday. Fair dos Cooper was in tears after the game regarding him. Shows how highly he is thought of here.

Romano thinks he's in the mix. I'd be surprised personally, but you never know!

Thought he deserved a thread of his own.

The work he put in last night was unbelievable. Back defending, running channels all day long and didn't stop.

What a signing he has been.

<<Your loan to Swansea was cut short after you reinjured your quad; but even before that, you seemed a bit snakebitten. What did you take away from your time in the Championship? What were your impressions of the league and what did you learn there? >>

It was a good experience, right? You try to take the best out of everything. But it was also very frustrating. It was a frustrating situation. I went on loan obviously really wanting to play and stay in form and help the team get to the Premiership before coming back to D.C. My main goal was just to prove myself over there and get a run of games and try and keep a good form. But it was tough. I can’t lie.

The level was good, I don’t think it was anything different than what you see in MLS. The style of play was a little bit different, the pitches were awful. Every single one of the pitches was awful except Stoke; and I think it plays a huge factor into the Championship, and it’s why teams consistently play direct, and play with big center backs and big No. 9s and five at the back is because of the conditions of the fields — tight pitches. But Swansea itself was a great club. Everyone at the club was amazing, the players, the staff, a really young group of guys. It felt like a family-feel type club. The facilities were great, besides the field.

I think obviously in the end, looking back you want to go somewhere where you feel really wanted. And I’m not quite sure if the manager there really had great intentions of me helping the team or maybe he thought I’d just be an extra number just offering reinforcement at some position. When the opportunity came — as a player, especially one that hadn’t been to Europe, I wanted to go, I had to go, I had really high hopes to do great things over there for the club. And then when you get there and you realize and understand the situation you’re in, you can really only wait for your opportunity. And unfortunately I really didn’t get one. I got a couple of late features in a couple of games but besides that, it ended up being disappointing. I did make great relationships, though and I was able to see what it was like over there — now I know I can play at that level, obviously you see other young Americans doing it at that level and in the Premier League as well. It definitely wasn’t a setback for me and I don’t see it as a failure. Now I’m just focused on turning the page, going forward here and having a great season in D.C. and taking it from there.

<<Throughout your career you’ve expressed a desire to ply your trade in Europe. Did the month or so at Swansea satiate that desire? Or do you feel an even stronger pull to go back knowing that things didn’t work out like you’d have wanted them to?>>

After my experience at Swansea, my attitude is just “go where you’re wanted.” The next time I move, if I ever move from D.C. United, it will be somewhere where I’m truly valued and somewhere where I’m there to make a difference on the team, regardless of country or style of play or anything like that. What it comes down to is whether you’re going to get an opportunity — and then it’s on you. And I’ll always bet on myself to make the most of an opportunity.
Cooper on Strikers
at 14:19 29 Apr 2021

<<Everyone knows we haven’t had a striker all season. We had to find a way to get goals and to win games. We’ve done that this year enough to keep us in this play-off hunt. >>

Yes you have Steve.

Ayew - https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/andre-ayew/profil/spieler/45403
The highest paid striker in league

Lowe - Who you brought in to be a striker. You said yourself. - “He’s been a winger and we’ve brought him in with a certain idea to build him."

Vik Gyokeres - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/54375512

Whittaker - Expensive

Cullen - U23 goal machine. Decent goalscoring ratio at senior level too.
