Swansea City balls: magic Gary Monk vanishes

by | 22nd, October 2015

Gary Monk is magic! The Swansea City manager really is magic. He can make himself disappear. Yesterday the Mirror’s John Cross tweeted:

Garry Monk misses training as pressure mounts at Swansea

Monk missing. Pressure mounting. Two plus two equals… Sacked?!

The Mirror duly reported why Monk was missing:

Garry Monk did not go into training at Swansea today. It is understood that he missed the session because of personal reasons.

Or as Swansea City put it:

Had Monk reappeared, as if by magic?

The Mirror’s John Cross went back to work:

Garry Monk is under mounting pressure at Swansea. The Swans have been on a winless run of six games…. Swansea today moved to deny that Monk missed training by posting pictures of their manager taking a session at the club’s Fairwood HQ. But they confirmed that Monk did miss the team’s warm-down session on Tuesday following the defeat to Stoke the night before.

He missed the warm-down session at Stoke City? Do you even need a manager to supervise that? Did it miss it for “personal reasons”? And ‘moved to deny” sounds a lot like denying and saying the Mirror was wrong.

Such are the facts.
