December 2016 - Swansea City Wiretap

Swansea Fires Bob Bradley As Manager

Dec 27, 2016 7:51 PM

Swansea City has fired Bob Bradley after just 11 matches.

Bradley yielded eight points from a possible 33, winning twice, drawing twice and losing seven times.

Swansea had wanted to give Bradley the January transfer window to strengthen the squad but the loss to West Ham was viewed as a gamechanger.

The sight of West Ham running riot on Boxing Day led to an outpouring of anger in the stands and prompted chants of “We want Bradley out."

Alan Pardew, who was only recently sacked by Crystal Palace, may come under consideration, along with names like Frank de Boer, Gary Rowett, Roy Hodgson and Chris Coleman. Ryan Giggs was in the running when Bradley got the job, but it would be a surprise if Swansea revived their interest.
