Swansea City managerial appointment and coaching team news
Thursday, 22nd Jul 2021 09:00 by Swansea Independent

We understand the majority of the hard work has been completed to appoint a new coaching team at the Liberty. As we reported on June 8th the Steve Cooper saga, and we will include Mike Marsh in this was always going to end with him leaving the club this summer. The new appointments won’t be hurried in though, as the club has disclosed Steve Cooper has stayed on to complete a smooth succession of the new appointments.

Steve Cooper for all his frustrating FA training techniques - which we are sure will hold him in good stead in the coming years has most certainly assisted some positive progression for the new faces to arrive very shortly. What we do know is that Alan Tate will remain at the club in a similar capacity to now, and a familiar face could be returning to a coaching position within the hierarchy. However, that is still under review. What we can disclose now it won’t be David Wagner, Winters old mate at Huddersfield Town.

No old pals act for Winter and Wagner

Unfortunately as it stands the proposed loan move to the club by a South American footballer has stalled due to the Cooper departure affecting his arrival. As we have reported in the last seven days that was as close as it could be to becoming confirmed.

So a set back there, but we are certain the new coaching team will have their own ideas plus we do know Andy Scott has three players he wants the club to consider in the coming weeks. However most swans fans will want those players in sooner rather than later, again unfortunately new bridges now have to be built. Especially when confidence needs to instilled in clubs loaning their young talent to the swans at this stage. It’s virtually impossible for any top club to want to entrust the club with their players as the situation now stands at the Liberty. Something we have to accept for now.

John Eustace who has survived several managers leaving at Loftus Road is a young and very well thought of coach with an already recognised high professional standard. He is extremely well regarded in the championship. As manager at Kidderminster Harriers he had a nearly 54% win record from 103 games, that’s a fantastic return for any club manager. If he is successful this time around with Swansea that percentage would see the swans in the premier league by the end of the season.

John Eustace, a young and hungry coach with pedigree

Trust is a huge word when your loaning impressionable young players to a club, the swans are once again getting back on their feet after such a newsworthy departure. We don’t expect the knowledgable mainstream media to hang back on speculation, much of it already has been put to bed here as far as we are concerned. Most of it is very wide of the mark. Not bad seeing as they said nothing when it was being reported that Cooper was leaving. Thank the good lord of Fleet Street that a man called Percy broke the news yesterday ...

Let’s be honest we could have been hung out to dry on our recent articles.

We won’t hold back once the new information we already have is analysed, and sources checked on reporting the new management team, but as always that will be a carefully managed situation. Remember we have to grade everything properly. We have said our goodbyes to Steve Cooper and possibly now Mike Marsh who has left a door slightly ajar for himself at the Liberty. Both though won’t have any financial concerns for the rest of their lives as they progress in football, again another set of bosses leaves the club for pastures new. We have a long list of successes, the most successful production line of young players in Wales, and most certainly managers who have gone on to international and major club success.

We will be okay though. Just you see.

So what a loan player lost? What good did Gibbs White do for Swansea?. 5 games an injury, on the treatment table for 5 months one more game and off.
