Thread: No first team role for Alan Curtis at Swansea

    No first team role for Alan Curtis at Swansea

    BBC reporting he won't be involved.

    No official statement but on first view it seems a bit harsh.

    Why harsh? He's been a coach of a team that has been in the bottom 3 all season.

    He would probably argue that during his tenure at the club, they have risen to the Premier league and up until this season, have been comfortably mid table.
    I think they were also a bit hasty sacking Monk but that is football.

    At the moment it probably makes sense for Clement to "sweep clean" and start with a blank page. They will have a very tough time getting out of the bottom 3, particularly with the next 5 fixtures.
    He will need to pick up points from what looks like no win games and also hope that fellow relegation teams around them don't do the same.

    If not, mid February could well see them well adrift.

    Sacked by text message. Classy.

    I've got images of a pissed Leighton James staggering up to the American owners, slurring something along the lines of 'you don't know what you're doing. Curts should be given the job'.

    Who will take over temporarily again when they sack Clement in two months..?

    Unless it was forward thinking on Clements part to take away their option to dismiss him.

    Bit of a non story really. New manager wants his own team around him and Swansea going to find a new role for Curtis

    Re: No first team role for Alan Curtis at Swansea

    I was told earlier from a Jack that he heard Curtis was stabbed in the back after Clements went back on what was agreed when the matter was discussed and that Clement is acting a right billy big bollocks talking to club staff and some players like shit and he thinks it won't be long before we hear of more unrest..
    Hope this is true.

    Re: No first team role for Alan Curtis at Swansea

    I would have thought that Curtis would have a good rapport with the players and staff. Surely that counts for something. Will he at least stay on in some other role?

    Paul Clement was just on SSN saying Curtis would remain at the club and be there to give him advice if he needed it.

    He even seemed to be keeping the door open to bringing him back to work with the first team - if he doesn't find alternative staff.

    He looked a bit thrown by the negative reaction.

    Keeps the Swansea 'trouble pot' bubbling nicely.

    If I didn't know better I'd say they haven't got a clue what they're doing down West.

    Shame really.

    Sounds like the new manager is upsetting the apple cart i have a feeling unless he changes his attitude towards people at the club and the squad it won't last long.. How long was he at the last club he managed?

    Apparently he is an investment expert.
    I think he is talking to the squad about pensions and SERPS (just in case the football club go tits up)

    The word on the street is that Clement told Gonzo he didn't want him, then the twät (Jenkins) text Curt.

    The club is full of utter ****tards. Him and Dineen should do the decent thing and walk before they're sacked

    I was told that it was agreed Curtis would be a part of the coaching staff then Clement went back on the agreement and spoke to Jenkins who then text Curtis.
    I think there will be some backtracking but maybe the bad feeling has already started..
    Heard a few at the club are not happy with the way Clement speaks to people and has a shite attitude.

    They have back tracked and have clearly made up a position just to shut up the fans who are loyal to Curtis and they have fallen for it.
    Alan Curtis shit on by the club he loves
