  1. "Let's get behind Monk and the team (And not just SAY you're behind Monk and how 'it would be great if he proves me wrong') etc and let's pull together and climb that league table TOGETHER Excellent OP and many other good posts about those very worrying stats about SWFC this season undfer Monk. Frighteningly bad! I can only hope that the above comment was irony".
  2. I disagree a Poll is an important barometer on the fans' view of the clueless Monk. Lose the next two games and if the deduction stays on appeal we are likely to need 57 points from 40 games to be safe. That is way above the points return achieved under Monk to date
  3. Good OP, well said. In any other league club with his results in 2020 Monk would have been fired. I so wish our Chairman DC would grasp the nettle, take action and get rid of this charlatan.
  4. Reflecting on the season to date I do believe that if we keep the uninspliring and clueless Monk we have little chance of making the promised land of 17th place. We have won one game at home since Christmas under Monk and that was in the 95th minute against a poor Charlton side who were subsequently relegated. It is surely time for an In/Out Poll on Monk - he is the Emperor's Clothes.
  5. Unfortunately Reach has been messed arouind by the clueless Monk. Monk even said he saw Reach as a striker. God help us! Down the left hand side yesterday where he should be I thought Reach did well . His cross for the assist was also spot on.
  6. Unfortunately they have had 40 chances to get the Academy right. In 40 years SWFC Academy has failed to produce a single regular Premier League player. To keep using a failed model year in year out and expect it to produce someone is ridiculkous. It is time for a change.
  7. Many of the arguments for keeping the Academy are in my view supported by emotion and some degree of nostalgia. I personally have no nostalgia for Steve Haslam or Lee Briscoe neither of whom ever made it at the top level. The Academy has failed to produce a top tier footballer in 40 years and the model is just not working. If we do find a gem then he will be poached/enticed away by sopme unscrupulous PL team like Leicester City. This is forty years of failure and in any organisation you have to change if you are constantly failing year after year
  8. Once again I tyhink NY Owl hits the nail onb the head: "Carry on trying to develop weak players in poor facilities - hasn't worked and no reason to think that will work."
  9. I appreciate that many have an emotional attachment to the Academy but Ny Owl's point still stands. SWFC's Academy has not produced a top tier player in 40 years. I shudder at the times I have heard the phrase "We have got some talented youngsters coming through". Anyone here remember the name Simmons. Well, he was billed as the next Jimmy Greaves and he ended up in Non League football! We even heard it under Luhukay two years ago. He launched the likes of Baker, Preston and Kirby and now not one of them is even playing at League One
  10. I notice that Steve Halam and Lee Briscoe are being touted by some as Premier League standard players. God help us!
  11. It is very important to learn from those who do things well. If the UK govenernment had been interested and learned from the handling of Covid 19 in South Korea, Singapore, New Zealand, Germany, etc we might well have had 20,000 deaths fewer here. What is the pronble of learning from Brentford? On crowds of little more than 9000 over many years they have last year reached the Championship Play Off final, have a really good squad, very healthy bank balance and do not have to labour under a points deduction. Scrapping their Academy and setting up t
  12. Ny Owl in another thread makes the salutory comment that the SWFC Academy has failed to produce a top tier player in 40 years. Stunning but true. We had a good period under Big Jack and Sgt Wilko when three Premier League standard players came through: Mel Sterland Perter Shirtliffe Mark Smith At that time we also had some good support players who emerged and helped us to get to the top tier: Grant, Taylor, Pearson and Oliver. But since then it has been an appalling drought. Particularly with Covid 19 now is time imo to reward this failure by
  13. Great short post ny owl. So true as well. Luhukay brought in youngsters and won some support on here for that but it was a charade because they were nowhere near Championship level.. Apart from Penny look where the others habve ended up now: Ash Baker - Newport County (Subs bench) Connor Kirby - Harrogate Town Fraser Preston - Boston United As ny owl says the problem lies with one of the worst and most unproductive Academies in the entire four divisions. Compare our Academy to the League 2 Exeter City Academy for example and their recent gra
  14. I suspect that our three great Managers in Big Jack, Sgt Wilko and Big Ron would all have done just fine without their own group of coaches. I saw a team under Monk that was poorly organised, lacked fight or fluidity and constantly gave away late goals. I can see why Swansea, Boro and Brum got rid of Monk so quickly.
  15. Since the start of the year @Owlstalk has been a great cheer leader for Monk and that is his opinion which is fine. It is a forum. I have a very different view of Monk based on the truly appalling results and performances since Xmas. Monk breeds conflict because he is a very poor leader and I have to say stupid with it. In virtually every club in the Premier and EFL Monk would have been fired at lockdown and without doubt at the season end. Chairman do not keep losers but in Chansiri the inept Monk got lucky.
  16. If Monk's results are as pitiful as they were post Xmas it will be far from an era. Monk is hugely under the spotlight because of his dreadful results and performances.
  17. Monk will be under the microscope before the end of September not Christmas He desperately needs results because well over two thirds of the fanbase based on a number of polls wanted Monk out. It could only be Chansiri as Chairman who would have retained him. Monk was fired by Swansea, fired by Boro and fired by Brum.
  18. Agree totally Student Owl. Monk is the Emperor's Clothes so he always talks a good game. Monk needs points on the board urgently because post Christmas under Monk was truly disastrous.
  19. Monk is a dead man walking. Most of us know that he is both abject and inept. I don't trust him either.
  20. I generally agree with Gurujuan on most topics including the fact that Monk shouyld no longer be manager of SWFC. However Da Cruz over Windass I cannot agree. I occasionally see the odd National Leagure game and Da Cruz would not even stand out at that level.
  21. Chansiri is a decent man. Get rid of Paxo and Monk and we could push on but with these two muppets at the helm League One beckons, I am sad to say.
  22. I so wish DC woukld appoint a capable CEO, sound and honest Football Advisor and a proper inspiring Football Manager. He could then halt the decline to League One and start rebuilding the club. Wolves managed to do it from a very similar situation and look where they are now.
  23. Monk could not even get us one more win and a draw since Xmas. A win and a draw would have meant that with a 12 point deduction in season 2019-20 this would have kept us up. We would now have a clean slate. Monk really is one of the most uninspiring, useless and inept managers SWFC has ever had. I would put Monk up there with Steve Burtenshaw, Chris Turner and Alan Irvine.
  24. Monk was at the club when he became Manager of Swansea due to a previously successful manager leaving. it went sour for Monk after a short period and he was fired. He was also fired by Boro and Brum after short stays. His time at SWFC has so far been disastrous in terms of results and performances.
