Ultimate fingers up to the board
at 20:29 1 Sep 2018

That performance from the lads was the ultimate fingers up to the board.....my love was relighted after that as it was the reasons I fell in love with the swans back in 86...not given a chance but passion and desire showing through enough to get 3 points.
We tried to play the right way but we're constantly bullied ..I saw the team grow today in terms of passion but also learning quickly what the league's about.
It was like everything that could go again at us did...down to 10 after 5 mins..captain and most influential player going off, Olson getting injured..the shape changed a few times but they adjusted.
Despite the antics from the board Potter and his troops are doing us proud..long may it continue.
And for those wishing defeat or saying we do t wanna go up..just enjoy the moment and see where it takes you..that's football

Jack to a King vol.2

I've got a sneaky feeling the Americans who loved the first version have told Huw that we need another blockbuster made so we can sell to some other investors.
Sell off all the quality and look for the 20k bargains out there so it'll make the film appealing.
Something in me believe they think that it can be done again...just hope they don't wanna do it from the lower leagues though.

Early evaluation
at 00:34 18 Aug 2018

So heres my early evaluation after 3 games.

Positives: Unbeaten with only 1 goal conceded, 2 clean sheets
Some of the u23s look like they could be useful and have desire.
Potter learning quickly about the squad and the league
The quality the teams we played is gash(luckily tonight and 2nd half Preston)

Negatives: 2nd half against Sheff utd and 1st half Preston we looked decent..the rest we looked poor.
The Squad looks thin and lacks quality.
We have not addressed last seasons issues..ie midfield and creativity.
Reluctant to use Naughton,Montero, Narsingh and Dyer could mean they be loaned off.
Lack of urgency with new additions with at least 4 really needed for the squad.
No leaders on the pitch..again what we missed last season.

So you can view it 2 ways..7 points from 9 with plenty of room for improvement or we are lucky so far and things could have been different in the 3 games and with 43 games left the squad could fizzle away.

I'm going to be optimistic and hope we get those 3 or 4 quality players and Potter will get the team really going!!

Stadium car parking
at 15:47 21 Jul 2018


Living some way from the stadium I have always purchased a car park season ticket...yes it's pricey but with a 93 yr old grandad who has followed them since he was about 8 I have no choice as he can't walk far.
Today I received the option to buy the new one which is normally 210 and has been for a few years...but the letter states that as this is regarded a premium product it will rise to 280!!!..a 25 percent rise.
With relegation I anticipated a freeze on it not a humongous rise.
My grandad is gutted as I said I will not pay for it as it disgusts me to the core how the fan is being treated.
There is a did out for blue badge holders of 170 which my grandad held since his heart problems but was taken off him this year by the govt as they consider him physically better at 93.
He actually said he won't go anymore as they making it too difficult.
Sorry for the rant but it really got me angry and sad to see how the club and govt treat people.

Seems a very good tactical manager and thorough in his preparation but as a club manager I could not watch them on a regular basis!!!
Maybe his style is suited to national footie.

Strikers
at 20:34 22 Apr 2018

5 years ago if you said we had spent £55m million pound on strikers and also an England and Scottish international striker at the club youd expect us to be doing okay.

But that is a fact..
A.Ayew 18m
J.Ayew 10m
W.Bony 12m
B.Baston 15m

Then O.Mcburnie and T.Abraham as the Scottish and English internationals.

And we are still toothless in attack...maybe it is the midfield after all.

4 points minumum

from the next 2 games with Chelsea and Man city to follow...must attack and take the game to both WBA and the toffees.

Anything less will make it tough for the remaining games.

Inexcusable performance
at 16:01 17 Mar 2018

I went to the game thinking it was a cup tie and came out thinking I just watched a testimonial.
I'm sorry but I want my swans team always up for the challenge don't silverware mean anything anymore to these millionaires.
And before anyone says how good spurs are...yes they are but Newport and Rochdale have them a game..we didn't have any desire whatsoever.
And yes we can beat the big teams we've done it recently...coming home after seen one player in his jeep laughing and joking with passenger..off shopping for the afternoon while I just spunked 25 for me and my daughter.
They should get them in tomorrow morning and sit and watch the whole game like we did....if we couldn't be bothered just stick the u23s out against them.
Disappointed.

Just saying that Mo scored his 8th goal of the season...didn't realise he was doing so well just like Oli seems to be.
Got me thinking just how many of our squad would be good enough for Championship as the 2 I'm talking about arent/weren't seem good enough.
Maybe some of those u23s would be great there too but which ones?

a mention to Narsingh
at 22:20 6 Feb 2018

Can I give a great mention to Narsingh a fantastic performance.
Wasn't mentioned much in the commentary as Dyer,Abraham seemed to be mentioned more.
All had good games but Narsingh was involved in nearly every good attacking move..more the same please.

Owners give extra £10m to Swans transfer funds
at 19:32 27 Jan 2018

LOL...what was the point really as the original £20m budget is highly likely to be sitting in the bank come Feb 1st.
To get what is needed in 4 days is now highly unlikely aint it.

Can see the headlines..January is a hard month to get the right players and we tried really hard.
So after 7 yrs we already know this..why it needs to be done correctly in summer and if not early in Jan.
My guess is one will come in and that's it..not really gonna help much unless is Bale or similar!

Tick tock..tick tock
at 11:32 22 Jan 2018

About 8 hrs to kick off and we were meant to have new signing for it.
9 days to go and the 3 or4 signings that are a must to have the slightest chance of survival ain't materialising.
Offers and trying wont save..there's no point trying to appease the fans because that won't wash if we're relegated.
Getting relegated unluckily is one thing but the owners have almost been wishing this as I think they find it all too stressful playing with the big boys.
See if that's the case they should have tried to find someone with the passion and funds to compete.

February 4th
at 00:57 21 Jan 2018

This will be the day we will be all but relegated unless we manage a miracle and get points..but 17 points come Feb 4th with no quality reinforcements will mean its over.

I try to be optimistic but my beloved Swans are draining this from me day by day.

Its in effect a tragedy that it has come to this without any sort of urgency or strategy from the powers that be...it simply is a ship without a captain just left to float by itself, heading towards an iceberg unfortunately!
Please prove me right come this day..as if it is my season ticket money that I have found the last 18 years will go towards upgrading the house how depressing is that.

Gaitan and Gameriro
at 11:27 16 Jan 2018

Sky just reporting that due to reports in the media Southampton are not going to go any further with the interest due to the high fees being asked!!!
I get the feeling that the source suggested a team ain the bottom of PL were interested and the muppets assumed it being us....we wont go for proven high fee/wage payers.
When you see the likes of Huddersfield,West Ham, West Brom,Saints, Palace all looking at or signing quality with high fees being paid we have no appetite to compete....There is even talk about Bournermouth signing Walcott and possibly Wlishire again both on loan.
Very depressing from our end..only serious link is Fredericks and he no interest whatsoever.
