U.S. Abroad: Praise for Bradley from interim successor

Interim manager Alan Curtis urged Swansea City players to "show a bit more spirit and fight" in the aftermath of the 4-1 loss to West Ham United that incurred the wrath of fans at the Liberty, but he had nothing but praise for American Bob Bradley, who lost his job in the process.

"I absolutely have sympathy for Bob," said Curtis ahead of Swansea City's next game, at home against Bournemouth on Saturday. "He was probably under pressure from the off because he was American but nobody could have given more in terms of commitment. He was the first in at 7 a.m. and the last out at 6 p.m. The work and time he put in was as good as I have seen, if not the best. His preparation and training could not be faulted and I am sure he will go on to have success elsewhere in the future."

This is Curtis' second stint as interim manager. He was in charge for charge for six weeks a year ago.

"We have to get our style back and I don't think it's as difficult as some people are suggesting," Curtis told reporters on Thursday. "When you look at training I think the ability is there. With the quality of players we have at the club, we should have done much better in the first half of the season. The most important relationship is the one between the players and the fans. The fans need to get behind us and we need to show a bit more spirit and fight."

    Testimony On How My Life was Transformed (Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com)..

    I am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what Martinez Lexie did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 2%. Well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts for the past three months all I met scammed and took my money total 6,500usd until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any kind for business or other purposes i would advise you to email Mr Martinez via: ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ) or through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958 and be free of internet scams. thanks… Jenny Hills CA, United State
