The Swansea City board were expected to hold a meeting today with manager Paulo Sousa to discuss their concerns over a drop in standards this year.
Paulo Sousa started his Swansea City career slowly, as changes amongst the managerial and player staff didn't help his early progress. But after a few months, when the injury problems eased, our form improved which helped us compete in the top 6 for a number of months.
The big concerns though amongst the board is the way we ended our season, as we threw away a play-off spot that we should and could have guaranteed before the final game of the season.
There are mixed views amongst the fans of our manager. Some believe he's done a fantastic job to beat last season's finish, while others are more critical about his defensive tactics.
Vital Swansea had heard a few weeks ago that Paulo Sousa was disappointed to be rejected the funds to sign a loan striker from abroad to give us a boost ahead of the final 2 months of the season. Money that would have been paid back and more if we had finished in the play-offs. Sousa apparently questioned the board's ambition and willingness to spend money in order to help us reach our Premiership aims.
Despite helping us to achieve our highest League position since the early 1980's, it appears the board aren't completely optimistic about our manager.
