    Really? I thought it was a great appointment at the time, I just thought it was probably too late and therefore might be a mistake on his part. I thought he was doing some solid work at Derby, but got turfed with the first difficult patch.

    Yeah, haha. I did. On reflection, indeed in January already, I realised that I had misread the man completely. He has done an absoutely brilliant job after taking over a complete shambles. I think Swansea are the only club not to be relegated after having 3 managers in charge in the same season? They were looking absolute certainties at one stage and almost at the flick of a switch he got them results while looking solid at the same time. No mean feat having to turnaround the debris of not just one, but two managers before him. Major kudos.

    There's always next year. Mourinho had a far better Chelsea team going that way before getting the boot...

    Also on reflection Bob Bradley wasn't very good and won't be managing Real Madrid anytime soon.

    I'm glad that Swansea are staying over Hull. Silva's done a pretty good job and I doubt he'll stay in the Championship, but losing at home to Sunderland (after his record of what, almost 50 odd unbeaten home games), Swansea taking that chance was a massive blow.

    Apparently, based on a table of the matches played since he was appointed, Clement would have Swansea sitting in 8th place in the league. That's pretty damn incredible... even more incredible is this is the guy Derby fired (when only a few points off the play-off places and still mid-season I think) for not playing "The Derby Way", whatever that is.

    They need a lot of work in the summer, not least because Sigurdsson could well be off, but they could potentially do quite well in a full season under Clement.

    lol

    Every year there's a hype around Derby and then it's just change after change and no promotion...

    Nailed it! Sunderland, Boro and Hull. And I still wish it would've been Palace

    "The derby way" - seems they want to play the gunho style of BR football.

    the fallout was that the owner wanted to build a young side in the Championship then get promotion. Clement was winning games and threatening to get promotion before the team was deemed ready by the owner and not picking players the owner wanted in the side.
