Swansea City fans sounded upbeat and encouraged by what Swansea City’s new manager Graham Potter had to say in his first full press conference after his appointment was confirmed on Monday.
The 43-year-old spoke in front of the media earlier today, you can watch the press conference below:
Swansea City fans were left feeling positive about a new era under the new man, as Potter spoke very well indeed, as he talked about former assistant coach Graeme Jones who he knew years ago, and had watched training sessions at Swansea involving his friend Graeme and our former manager Roberto Martinez.
So Potter is quite familiar with the club and the desire to get back to an attacking and attractive style of football. Aware of the “Swansea Way”, but Potter admits it’ll be a bit different now, a Swansea Way v2.0 possibly!?
‘Very positive’, ‘Very impressed’, ‘optimistic’
Yeah, I watched it. Very impressed. Loved his honesty. Optimistic with his appointment – let’s hope he gets the support those who went before him didn’t. Very pleased to hear him say he’ll make recruiting decisions BUT we don’t know yet whether it will actually be the case or not

While watching Graham Potter's press conference I was really impressed the way he talked. He didn't promise to get back to the Premier League and for now the main thing is to recover from the few years in PL. He bought me with that.

The fans were also happy to hear Potter talk about the recruitment plans, and how he’s brought his recruitment analyst Kyle Macaulay with him to support the tough job in re-building the squad and replacing key players this Summer. Potter revealed in front of the press that chairman Huw Jenkins wants him to “take the lead” on the recruitment decisions.
That was all very positive..We got the man we wanted..The recruitment strategy is now changing with the new team spearheading it..Time to let sleeping dogs lie and look forward to the new season! #grahampotter #newbeginnings #Swanseacity

Fascinating listening to Potter's first @SwansOfficial press conference – he's comes across as a confident, astute but very grounded young man. First impressions are incredibly positive for me!
