The stats make dire reading for Bradley in his short time at Liberty Stadium: In his 11 games in charge, Swansea collected just eight points and conceded 29 goals, 19 in its last six games. "He'd probably never watched Swansea City live before".
Chris Coleman and Gary Rowett are at the top of Swansea's managerial shortlist to replace Bob Bradley, according to Sky sources.
Swansea dropped a 4-1 home loss to West Ham United on Boxing Day as club supporters have expressed their outrage at Bradley. The hallmark of Swansea sides over the past decade has been its free-flowing, possession-based approach preached by managers like Roberto Martinez, Brendan Rodgers and Michael Laudrup.
"I met with them a couple of times, but in the end there was just mixed messages from the football side and the ownership side of the club", Giggs told ITV after missing out to Bradley.
"I thought discussions were going in the right direction". In 2015, Bradley took over French club Le Havre.
"It's very hard to take a team over midseason, but for me, it's not always that those type of opportunities come along every day", Bradley told FOX Sports' Keith Costigan just hours before he was sacked.
Ryan Giggs has been installed as the bookmakers' early favourite to succeed Bradley, but it remains to be seen whether the former Manchester United assistant manager would want to work with the Swansea hierarchy.
Rex Ryan fired as Bills head coach
It appears that the Ryan regime could end as early as this week, even though his record in Buffalo isn't that bad at all. Ryan may not have been willing to bench Taylor and go with backup EJ Manuel, which likely forced the Pegulas hand.
"Alan Pardew might be a shout after leaving Crystal Palace".
First team coaches Alan Curtis and Paul Williams will take temporary charge, before the club appoints its fifth manager in under three years.
"You can find British managers - who are good managers and have had success - but they came in to tough situations and, for whatever reason, just couldn't get the thing turned around".
Personally, I have nothing but praise for Bob.
Bob Bradley said the lampooning of his use of American terminology in the Premier League had no effect on him at Swansea.
Although Coleman stressed in September that he had unfinished business with Wales and was motivated by the prospect of trying to take his country to the 2018 finals in Russian Federation - his contract expires at the end of the qualification campaign - he also admitted his head had been turned by the possibility of managing in the Premier League once more.
