You are absolutely obsessed. 

 

 

 

Well at least my apparent obsession led me to see the light literally months before you did. No embarrassing climb downs for me, eh? And talking of obsession, that was post number 41,491. Never has the phrase 'get a life' been so apt.

Carlos wanted to go  and speak to them last year I think.  Wonder if they got in touch with his agent.  I wish him all the best wherever he ends up.

 

Me too mate . Lovely bloke, but just ran out of ideas and needed to move on .

One thing about the Carlos situation that has surprised me is the behaviour of some on here. Maybe it shouldn't?

 

After years in the wilderness we reached the playoffs twice, and had some fantastic times, playing some brilliant football. He was also a top bloke, a great ambassador for the club and the only manager I can ever remember getting praise from Unitedites. Even they liked him. The media loved the bloke, and the whole club was lifted. 

 

The last 6 months went pear shaped, but the childish language, vile criticism and pathetic put downs on here by a pre pubescent minority is quite disgraceful, and those doing it should be thoroughly ashamed. It would be bad enough directing such bile towards the likes of Irvine and Jones, when the football and ambition was really bad. 

 

This is Sheffield Wednesday. Not Leeds, United, Millwall etc. Show some respect, have some manners and grow up. Or do one.

The style of play Carlos prefers may suit a team in the Prem rather than the Championship.

Even swansea have good players who could hurt any team if they are patient enough to wait for the opportunities.

We need to be a bit more adventurous and take risks as the opposites will not be as good as so can afford the risk.

Good luck to him if true. 

 

I don't get the vitriol towards ex managers. Was the same for Laws when he went to PL Burnley - people hated the fact he went onto better things.

Carlos making Swansea hard to beat and accumulating points by drawing games might just work.

Let’s be honest here the man just isn’t a very good manager.

 

Nice guy fair enough but that, his lack of tactical nous and inability to see the obvious cost him his job in the end.

 

He would be way out of his depth in the PL.

Yes, two good seasons and a mediocre half season does not jusify the venom seen on here and other social media.

 

Laws did OK at Burnley after we sacked him, I hope Carlos follows suit.

Wouldn’t touch that job if I was him. They’ve got a terrible squad. Hiding to nothing.

I know getting to the playoffs twice in three seasons, down to good luck I'd say.

I have very little sympathy for any football club that spends £17m, yes that's £17m, on Sam Clucas.

He’s a one dimensional stubborn but ultimately poor manager.

 

He couldn’t ge the most basic stuff right in the end whether it be fitness, tactics, player positions or man management he just couldn’t do it.  

No wonder we were so easy to play against it was so obvious to us fans how we we’re going to set out and what tactics we would use any opposition manager worth there salt would be able to suss us out and figure how to beat us

Swansea's time in the PL is coming to an end - they've dodged it for a few seasons now, but it's inevitable.

The next manager will have 18 months top whack to get promotion, before the fans are getting out the pitchforks. 

 

In fact, quite a few on here haven't put theirs away.

What exactly have you got against Carlos? Its like a Daily Express anti EU witch hunt with you.    If you believe anything you read in the Sun, you've got serious problems.    Hes been our best manager by far in 20 years

 

1)Bryan Laws got sacked by us.

His next match was Man Utd v Burnley at Old Trafford, in front of 75,000. 

 

2).  Carlos has managed Sporting Lisbon and Galatasary who are both bigger than Sheffield Wednesday.   Since when were we a big club?   Outside North Sheffield, most people would see Portsmouth, Wigan and Blackburn as bigger than us.  He's also played for far bigger clubs than we will ever be.  Porto for a start.  

 

I predict he will manage a club bigger than us. And do well.

I believe Carlos' record shows he's good for 1 season. 

Which is all Swansea need at the minute.
