Lets be honest, it’s not been a great season for Swansea City.
After an impressive eighth-place finish last season, Garry Monk’s men have failed to recapture the impressive form of 2014/15, and currently find themselves 15th in the table, just four points clear of the drop zone.
On top of all that, Monk’s position has been under constant threat this season, with yesterday’s 3-0 defeat at home to Leicester City said to be the final straw for the club’s hierarchy.
And the embattled coach won’t have been too pleased to wake up this morning and find that most national newspapers seemed to be under the impression that his job was soon to be David Moyes’s job, with various reports linking the former Everton and Manchester United boss to the post.
Some outlets even seem to be under the impression that Moyes – sacked by Real Sociedad last month – is already in talks with chairman Huw Jenkins already, despite Monk still in his position…

As you’d expect, the internet had a very strong opinion on it all…
Why would Swansea want David Moyes to take over as manager?

@SwansOfficial Please not David Moyes! We are meant to be a progressive, footballing club. This would see us knee jerk & take us backwards.

Imagine sacking Garry Monk for David Moyes. Swansea wouldn't be that daft, surely. #Swans

Swansea usually hire young and progressive coaches, so why on earth would they be considering David Moyes?
— John M O'Sullivan (@NotoriousJOS) December 6, 2015
David Moyes would keep us up but that would be the end of our philosophy of last few years so for me he's not the right man
