The former Swansea player and manager will be the seventh manager in less than two years for the Whites, continuing the chairmans fierce reputation for changing managers at the drop of a hat. Once the appointment is confirmed, we fully expect Monk to be installed as one of the favourites to be the first manager to be sacked in the new season!
Monk doesn't have a huge pedigree as a manager. His win ratio at Swansea was just 36.4%, roughly the same as former box, Steve Evans. It is no longer a case of whether the fans will back the new manager - we suspect they will ultimately just feel a bit sorry for him!
