However, Rodgers was then lured over to Liverpool in the summer of , and was replaced by Michael Laudrup. The Dane led the Swans to Capital One Cup glory and thus qualification into the Europa League the following season after his side thrashed Bradford in the final, only to lose his job a year later after a mixed bag of results.
Monk was placed in caretaker charge in February , then awarded the job on a full-time basis in May of the same year.

Again, however, his time there was anti-climactic. He made four starts in his brief stint with the club. He would leave the club for the same reasons he moved there in the first place: to find first-team football. Bangor was the club where he was eventually able to achieve this.
Over two years, Cooper made just shy of 60 appearances for the club, scoring three times. This was as close to a footballing home as Cooper found in his short-lived career, he would leave in for non-league team Porthmadog where he made a few appearances at centre-half before hanging up his boots. Cooper's career was cut short by injuries. Unfortunately, he was just 23 when he left the playing side of the game for good.
His overall career record stands at 65 appearances, in which he scored four goals. His time in football was not over, however. A man who always showcased an excellent understanding of the sport, his was a natural progression into coaching. Two years after he had left the sport, he returned. His destination was Wrexham, the club where Cooper had spent his formative years and gained his footballing education.
After gaining his coaching badges, he was offered an attractive position as the head of youth development at the club. At this point still only 25 years old, Cooper would mature into a visionary coach and an excellent man-manager in his first position. He would eventually vacate the role to work for European giants Liverpool.
This was a huge step up from lowly Wrexham. But, in his position as academy manager, Cooper showed no signs of being overawed by the stature of the club, nor the quality of the players. Under his stewardship, Liverpool produced something of a 'golden generation' of footballers, many of whom have gone on to represent their countries, play to an elite level and command huge transfer fees.
Cooper, it became apparent, was excellent at nurturing precocious talent. This made his next job a natural movement and a hugely successful one at that. After five years on Merseyside, Cooper was approached by the English F. A to see if he would be interested in taking on a role in their youth setup.
Of course, this was something of a dream move for Cooper, and he duly accepted - he took the reins for the under 16 side initially. He stayed in this position for one year before being promoted to managing the now internationally acclaimed under 17 side,. It was with this talented squad that Cooper really made a name for himself, effectively setting himself up for the rest of his career.
He was tasked with implementing the England 'DNA' scheme which required that players coming through the youth systems at a national level were taught how to play fluid, attacking and attractive football. The aim of the campaign was to install a new English footballing philosophy which stood in diametric opposition to the old way the English were expected to play. Needless to say, Cooper did exactly that. His side played magnificently as they narrowly missed out to Spain in the Under 17s European Championship and subsequently won the following World Cup at the same level, again against the Spaniards.
The England youth teams now have an internationally excellent reputation and, in some part, this is down to Cooper. His feats on the international stage did not go unnoticed; in he was appointed Swansea City boss - this is his first senior position. The Swans, who have a young squad, will be hopeful that Cooper, bringing his youth coaching experience, will be capable of extracting the best from them.
Austria Bundesliga. From oddschecker. Southampton against Watford also has the look of a stalemate while Chelsea and West Brom are worth backing on the road. Low is the way to go on total goals as the Seagulls have drawn a blank in every game while West Brom have only managed seven in 12 games since April.

Undefeated in eight in the league ten in all competitions , with a record on the strength of it, is exactly what Steve Cooper will have wanted. But the most impressive aspect of the season the Swans have put together has been how good they are as a cohesive unit without the ball. Swansea have looked good in the FA Cup as well, with a consummate win against Stevenage third round and a thrashing of fellow-Championship outfit Nottingham Forest on their record this term.
Despite that, they have been good in all areas of the pitch, and still look the part of a side this season once again dreaming of promotion. They certainly cannot be discounted to give City a few headaches in midweek. Manchester City continue to roll-on in the Premier League after putting current holders Liverpool to the sword in a win at Anfield at the weekend. All-told, City have won fourteen matches on the bounce in all competitions, while being undefeated in twenty-one outings since the 21st of November.
They have been one of the best — and quite possibly argued as the best — side in all of Europe, but the FA Cup is still one of those competitions where form can be thrown out the window. Considering City is still vying for trophies in all competitions , it is likely that Pep could very well heavily rotate his XI for the trip to Swansea with their weekend Premier League tie against Spurs in mind. But there is still something to be said about what good form and confidence can do for uplifting a side against even the trickiest of opposition.
Regardless of who is selected, City will have to be at their best to progress here. Swansea cannot be taken for granted. It is unclear if Cooper will rotate with a more senior-side or if he will continue to view cup football as a chance for fringe and young players to get minutes.
