Over the last 10 years, Swansea City have climbed to competing with the top teams in the world, in the most difficult league. Though there are many factors that have led us to this point, few would understate the importance of the players the Swansea management team have brought in and cultivated. Swansea aren’t known for splashing the cash on the latest ‘in demand’ striker. Rather, they have developed a strong reputation for finding the best new talent and helping them realise their potential. In recent years, great examples of this are Ki Sung Yueng and Andre Ayew. Over the years, the Swansea players have built a reputation for playing a fast moving, passing game. The 15/16 Swansea Squad represent the best team we’ve ever put out and, under the guidance of Garry Monk, we all have very high hopes.

Of course, our recent rise to the top level of world football can’t be attributed solely to the Swansea players. Many would argue that the most influential factor on the road to the Premier League (top half we might add) has been the managers we’ve had over the last 10 years. Perhaps the most influential Swansea managers of recent years are Brendan Rogers and, most recently, Garry Monk.
Garry Monk has revolutionised the way the team play. Amidst huge doubts and scepticism as the Swans approached their first season in the Premier League, Monk quickly silenced any critics. He went on to produce a managerial performance that even the best in the world have been quick to recognise. He’s now held us as an example for ALL managers, but is held in extra high esteem by managers and players from the Championship and lower leagues. I’m sure many will be trying to emulate Swansea’s performance this season!
