Oscar Garcia: On Swansea radar

Oscar Garcia: On Swansea radar

Former captain Garry Monk has been place in charge for the 'foreseeable future' but it is understood that whilst Swansea's hierarchy are willing to give the new set-up a chance, they are actively looking at alternatives.

There is no sign or willingness for Swansea to move away from their style of play - first instigated by Roberto Martinez and continued by Paulo Sousa, Brendan Rodgers and Laudrup - under a new boss.

With that in mind Garcia and Enrique, who are impressing in their current roles with Brighton and Celta Vigo respectively, are understood to be on their radar.

Glenn Hoddle has also been linked, and we understand that Martinez's number two at Everton, Graeme Jones - who has links with Swansea too from his time in South Wales - would also come under consideration.

French reports also claim that former Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly is another who could emerge as a contender for the role.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
