After witnessing the likes of Brendan Rodgers, Michael Laudrup and Garry Monk all leave the Liberty Stadium hot-seat for pastures new in recent seasons, Swansea City seemingly found themselves with yet another big decision on their hands once the club’s latest managerial departure of Francesco Guidolin, was finally announced.
The 61-year-old Italian tactician ultimately failed to set the English top-flight alight during his brief spell down in South Wales – yet now former manager of the United States national team, Bob Bradley, has since been announced as Guidolin’s permanent successor for the Swans – perhaps Swansea City could be on the verge of turning their poor form around.
Although Ryan Giggs was reportedly among the race to succeed Francesco Guidolin as the new Swansea City manager…
They've just asked Bob Bradley what he has that Ryan Giggs doesn't.
30 years managerial experience and a Wife?

…most Premier League onlookers believe Bradley has enough about him to at least improve upon what has already taken place down at the Liberty Stadium this season…
In Swansea, where Bob Bradley has said more in one press conference answer than Guidolin did in nine months of them.

The future ramifications for the US game could be massive if the Swans begin to impress under their new main man at the helm…
Bob Bradley's appointment not just vitally important for Swansea City but for US football – if he does well credibility rises instantly.

…even if Bradley’s proposed lack of top-flight experience could serve to underpin the collective hopes of the Liberty Stadium faithful in 2016/17…
Guidolin wasn't the right man for the Swans but Bob Bradley's a huge risk. Only experience he has which is close to PL is the 2010 World Cup

The former manager of the US national outfit could arguably represent something of a gamble truth be told…
Hope Swansea know what they’re doing. Bob Bradley’s had his difficulties at Le Havre this season. Not won at home since Aug 5

…especially as the Premier League tends to be something of an unforgiving task for ill-equipped new comers…
Beginning of the end for Swansea, Bob Bradley is a massive risk!!!

But as Bob Bradley seemingly remains confident in his abilities right in the here and now…
Bob Bradley has to be judged on what HE does. Initial interview with him sounds logical, so we can only give him a chance and hope for best

…who’s to say that Swansea won’t develop into a roaring success under their latest leader in the Liberty Stadium dug-out?
So interesting watching the English medias negative response to Swansea hiring Bob Bradley. I hope he hits the ground running!
