Another promotion, another season of outstanding man and match management. That gives you one guarantee – Micky Mellon will be linked with jobs all over the place.
Just hours after our win at Wembley on Saturday, the bookies had installed Micky as favourite to be named new Swansea City manager. It’s likely to only be the start of speculation this summer as well.
Former Tranmere and Swansea favourite Andy Robinson even gave his backing to Mellon moving to the Swans.
Speaking to BBC Radio Wales Breakfast, Robbo said: “He’s an infectious guy and five promotions in less than 10 seasons is a phenomenal job,”
“If it’s not to Swansea then Micky will surely be getting other offers.”
“He gets the best out of what he has to work with,”
“If it was to be Swansea City, the identity of the club, the Swansea way – the way we play – he wouldn’t come away from that because that’s his philosophy anyway.
“But he’s adaptable as well, he’s a good guy in football and he knows what it takes to win a football game.”
The reality is, this move looks highly unlikely. Mellon is a couple of months in to a new contract which runs until May 2021 and has an affinity with Rovers which is growing by the month. The two-time Tranmere player has now led the club from the National League to League One thanks to successive promotions.
While you can never say ‘never’, you’d be very surprised if Micky was to walk out at this point given the trajectory the club is on.
Another of the names linked with Swansea is Danny Cowley from Lincoln. He’s your man, lads.
