Vote Cooper or a tin of beans..
I don’t think we could afford another year with Tommy Cooper, as we’d be relegated. And we can’t afford to get rid of him, because the Yanks wouldn’t want to pay another manager off. The words rock and a hard place springs to mind.
Angel Rangel as manager?
There are loads of ageing players from the good old days @jasper_T but there are very very few that I would consider to have management potential but Rangel is possibly one. I would say he's a reasonably intelligent man who comes from a country blessed in the art of football and knows our club philosophy as well as anyone. The fact he still lives in Swansea is also a plus point. I'm not advocating that he should be brought in immediately to replace Cooper but why not get him involved in the lower age range teams and see how he goes from there.
Martinez did alright without any experience did he not @Mark_Jack_London ? Not sure whether he had his badges when HJ appointed him as our manager. Don't think they were a prerequisite in those days like they are now. Having said that I do agree that now is probably not the time for a rookie but maybe get him into the set-up as I'm confident that Rangel (unlike Monk) would play the Martinez way. At the end of the season I think Trevor Birch should go cap-in-hand to Toshack & Richards.
