Home >Story Index> Addison and Nicholas go……..

The management team have been the subject of speculation for several weeks now and the announcement from the club this morning puts and end to the speculation with regards their position and will once again leave the manager position at Swansea City vacant.
But how long will this situation remain vacant? John Cornforth is strongly linked with the job and with six weeks only to run on his contract at Exeter City he is the immediate front runner from the job and could even be in place by the time the team arrive at Carlisle tomorrow afternoon ahead of Saturday’s game.
Cornforth is of course Swansea through and through. He is a Jack from his time here when he did of course lead us out under the twin towers of Wembley and onto victory in the Autoglass Final against Huddersfield and he is held in high esteem by Swansea fans. It is our opinion that the appointment of Super John as manager will add immediate benefits to the gate and increase the number of season ticket holders that the club have. It will be a popular choice as manager and although only manager at St James Park for a short period of time, he turned Exeter’s season around and this should not go un-noticed with those saying that Corny has no real track record behind him.
Colin Addison and Peter Nicholas arrived at the Vetch after the sacking of Hollins and Curtis last September. They were dealt immediate blows with the arrival of Tony Petty and his seemingly one-way street to ruining Swansea City. Of course, that streak was ended by Mel Nurse and his local consortium who finally ousted Petty in January. Since then the club have been on a reasonable run of results, although the football has been at times, less than attractive. As with Hollins, the fans were split on whether they should stay or go but that is now not an issue and whoever the manager is, although Cornforth is the man we believe has been chosen, the fans MUST get behind the team and the management as we look to the future and not dwell on the past.
Another change of management puts another twist into this season that has been one huge twist since the start. The appointment of the new manager will mean that we have been through the season with three owners and three managers, how many other sides have been through that in one season. Stability is now the key and more work on putting Swansea City back where we should be.
Altogether now…..”Super, Super John……”
