View Full Version : Gary Monk

07-12-2015, 11:58 AM
Apparently been sacked by Swansea after winning just 1 of their last 12 matches

A matter of time really.

07-12-2015, 12:07 PM
Just six months after finishing 8th, fickle game

Their local paper has said that a fake tweet has led to speculation and suspension of betting but Swansea saying he has not been sacked although it does look imminent.

He should probably meditate over his future in football

07-12-2015, 01:49 PM
Gary Monk has found to his cost that losing games is habit forming

07-12-2015, 02:02 PM
His players have a problem taking his order

just waiting for Moyes to say yes to Swansea then Monk is gone

07-12-2015, 03:38 PM
Moyes would be a strange appointment I think given the type of manager they've had previously

07-12-2015, 03:54 PM
Brendan Rogers ????

"Apparently" they have already a shortlist of 3 managers should the current one ever leave via a sacking or to another club. Like a conveyor belt if you will.

Football bloody football..!

It will be Brendan Rodgers. He didn't leave under a cloud. It was a mutual agreement, and Swansea got a wedge of cash for letting him go.

Not surprised Gary Monk has gone - apparently he had a filthy habit !!

I tell you what IWL I will 'Like' this post of yours if you 'Like' my post #6 where I posted the same pun :)

Jenkins effectively said Monk would be sacked yesterday. I think he's been unlucky. It's not often you sell the team's best player and don't suffer as a result. Bony was so important to Swansea and they've not replaced him. Not rocket science that they're a worse side now.

Moyes might be more of a pragmatist than their recent managers but he might be just what they need given what a superb job he did at Everton.

Finally gone, sacked after 1 win in 12, it's a cruel, results driven world.

Just out of curiosity, what would people like to see, regarding the keeping/sacking of managers?

If they do a good job, should they be given a minimum contract that cannot be severed? Should being sacked after a set minimum of bad results come into effect? Would some kind of system where there is certain criteria set and if it's not fulfilled within the first 20 games, or isn't on course to be fulfilled, then they get sacked?

Have to say that I think managers are sacked far too quickly now - I remember a group of Burnley fans screaming abuse at Sean Dyche and demanding he be sacked when we lost 1-0 at Blackpool in April 2013. He'd been in charge for 29 league games and hadn't signed a player. Some boards would have pulled the trigger, but I'm surprised Swansea have.

Rodgers is odds on to return.

If we lose the next 2 some on here will be after Dyche
