Here at Vital Swansea we will profile possible candidates for the vacant manager's job at the club, first we look at Joe Royle.
The 55 year-old started his managerial career at Oldham, 3 months after retiring from the game in 1982.
He was at Boundary Park for 12 years, taking the second division club up into the Premiership by 1991.
They also reached the League Cup final in 1990 and we were beaten in that game by Nottingham Forest.
In the FA Cup, they reached the semi-finals twice, in 1990 and 1994, losing to Manchester United twice.
Royle resigned from the club in 1994, after the Latics were relegated to the First Division.
However, he was soon back in a manager's role at Premiership club Everton. In his first season at Goodison Park, he won the FA Cup in the 1994-95 season and the following a year the Toffees finished 6th in the Premiership.
He resigned in 1997 however after signing 2 Norweigan players without permission from the chairman.
11 months later in February 1998 he joined Manchester City. At the time of his arrival, City were struggling in the First Division relegation zone and despite his failure to save them from the drop, he helped them to two consecutive promotions to get them back into the Premiership.
City only spent one season in the top flight however which led to Royle being sacked.
His next and latest job was with Championship side Ipswich, where he replaced George Burley as manager.
He spent 4 years at Portman Road between October 2002 and May 2006. In his first season, The Tractor Boys missed out on the play-offs and the following year they were beaten by West Ham in the Play-off semi-final.
During the 2005-06 season, Ipswich suffered their lowest League finish in 50 years. Magilton then succeeded Royle as Ipswich manager.
Royle is one of a number of possible candidates linked with the manager's job at Swansea.
