The Sunday Swansea Independent
Sunday, 4th Oct 2020 13:18 by Liberty Lou for the Swans Independent
Some light reading for you all as we take a look at the previous few days that set tongues wagging, Viktor Gyökeres signs at last, Swansea City win again, Cooper gets even angrier, Winter needs to come in from the cold and Swansea City Ladies play at home. Yes we have it all here at Swansea Independent, your first and foremost Swansea City website.
Maybe its time to take a breath on this very happy Sunday for Swans fans. On Wednesday we reported that Viktor Gyökeres would be signing on loan from Brighton for the season and offered you a professional and personal insight in to the Swedish international.
Steve Cooper once again reiterated his desire to retain his squad of players due to the high volume of fixtures coming up after the international break, so we were as surprised as anyone when news broke that a 'text message' had somewhat peeved Steve on Saturday morning.
"Well I don't know the reason behind it [Peterson's impending exit]," said Cooper.
"I had a message off Julian Winter this morning to ask for him not to be involved. He was in the squad and would probably have been on the bench, and that's as much as I know about it to be honest. We're going to need a squad. And I know I haven't changed the team too much, only the goalkeeper today, because we've been playing every Saturday and we've got some positive results, and you keep going with that, that's pretty normal, but that isn't going to continue. We need a squad. I didn't want to lose any players."
And when asked if he was consulted about Peterson's exit, Cooper responded: "I think all clubs are different, with who makes decisions. I just got the instruction this morning, not to involve Kris, and what happens next with him I'm not too sure."
Swansea City fans reacted badly to this news and later on when badly advised tweets were put on Twitter the anger was palpable. The gist of the messages surrounded Steve Cooper walking out of Swansea and resigning. We made our usual careful inquiries and learned quickly the truth. Yes, Cooper had spoken with Winter post match and made it very clear that this was not the way that professional relationships developed and asked that this situation does not present itself again. Steve Cooper is manager of Swansea City and will continue in his role. However, we should all be mindful that Julian Winter has no experience of what it is like to be at a club like Swansea City, and relationships all round have to be solid for us as a club to move forward positively. Underhand financial transactions as experienced already at Swansea will not be tolerated. Hopefully Winter will take this on board and not leave his manager in the embarrassing situation he was in on Saturday.
Swansea City Ladies
So a gentle weekend for Swansea City, not much happened and now some of the team have two weeks in training whilst others represent their countries. Its just pretty average watching the swans.
