Swansea Appoint Bob Bradley. I may be wrong but......
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

And coming from a West Ham supporter that's pretty damming. Seriously, has this guy ever managed a club beyond the French 2nd division?

Plus a quick google search shows his missus looks like a bloke with a Barbie's face photoshopped on. Seriously, go Google Lindsay Bradley

Only remember his time as USA boss. He got them to over achieve so won't write him off completely just yet although the competitiveness of the Premiership suggests it will be a big ask for him to do better than then last few managers they have had?

My thoughts too. I have to believe it's a marketing ploy to gain market share in the US. For a team struggling with relegation, I don't really see the sense in bringing someone in with no experience in a top european league. In addition, he's a yank, and regardless of how wonderful a manager he may be, it will be a hurdle to clear to gain the respect of the dressing room. Without that, he is proper fucked. Folks just don't rate americans when it comes to football.

He done some good things with the US team, like beating spain in the semis of the confed cup '09 and leading brazil 0-2 in the finals. He also did well with Egypt when the country fell in to chaos after mubarak was toppled. It just seems like Swansea are out on limb with this.

It's all a bit hit or miss hiring managers these days!
Average life span, is what, two years, if you do well and 6 months if you don't.

Did a very good job with Stabaek despite being expected to struggle and any decent players being sold with the club having no money. Was very unfortunate at Le Havre as they missed out on promotion by 1 goal (they hit the woodwork 4 times in the last game) This was a decent improvement on the previous year.
Highly respected in Egypt and by plenty of ex players at all his clubs. I maintain I think he'll do ok.


Can you imagine Slaven getting sacked, a new manager appointed and the owners saying the above to justify that appointment to a Premier League managers position?

They would be lynched.

Personally, I think sacking a manager so soon is not a good idea but Bilic really must be looking over his shoulder now.

There have been far worse premier league manager appointments than Bradley.

Re: Swansea Appoint Bob Bradley. I may be wrong but......
Why??

Give an intellectual argument why you think this? Previous success in a top European League maybe? Nope. Decent understanding of the English game? Nope.

His current team are half way up the French 2nd Division. However he is best buds with the new Swansea owners.

Re: Swansea Appoint Bob Bradley. I may be wrong but......
I think this could be a decent appointment

Re: Swansea Appoint Bob Bradley. I may be wrong but......
We have an ex international manager who achieved MUCH more as an international manager. Can't compare international management to managing in the Premier League, especially if it is the States, hardly Brazil are they?

I see though Bob did qualify for the Wafer Cup in a Scandi country with a piss poor league

GO SWANS!

I don't think the bodybuilder Lindsay Bradley is the same Lindsay Bradley he's married to?
