|Radio Wales coverage.|
at 16:01 1 Sep 2019
When Swans played Derby a couple of weeks ago Radio Wales in Pembrokeshire was covering the Cardiff game as they always do.
Swans commentary is only on RW in the Swansea area.
I complained to them about this. They agreed I had a point and said they would sort it.
In any event with Cardiff having played Fri night I was looking forward to listening to the Leeds game yesterday.
So tuned in on DAB yesterday at 3pm to get greeted by blydi Rugby!!!!! Never mind I thought I'll listen on FM, no blydi chance !
Radio Wales had the same rugby coverage on DAB, FM, MW, Sky, red button, freeview and online! EVERY possible listening option in West Wales.
Rob Phillip's Leeds commentary was only available on DAB in the Swansea area.
It wouldn't be the same if Cardiff were in the top two.
PS Radio Cymru AND Radio Cymru 2 , the Welsh language BBC were BOTH broadcasting the same rugby commentary!

Not sure anyone is interested but the main ticket window for applying for tickets for all Euro 2020 final group games and knock out games up until the final closes on the 12/7. Has been open on UEFA,com since 12/6. There will be other windows but according to UEFA this window is when most of the tickets are allocated.
Seems crazy when no one knows who is going to playing, who is qualified or where they are playing.. (games are all over the place including Baku, Rome Paris Paris London etc.

|Communication from the Club.|
at 16:40 20 May 2019
Has there been any communication from the Club re the Potter situation and our search now for a new manager?
The silence is deafening.
Reports now confirm Potter has signed a 4yr contract at Brighton and has taken Reid, Hamberg, Macauley with him.

Spending the night in a hotel in Luton town centre
Blimey, What a dive. Luton that is, not the hotel.(this country is on its knees in places).
Don't say Swansea is run down again !
Also have to get the car out of the hotel car park by 9am as the roads are closed 9am to 4pm for their open top bus parade and reception celebrating promotion to the championship!

Shocked to hear on Sky news just that there are still plenty of tickets available for their champions League semi final with Spurs tomorrow with Pep appealing for the fans to turn up as the team needs them!
|Where are the Americans?|
at 22:47 21 Mar 2019
Have they been here this season?
Should they not be showing an appearance here now? Talking to employees of all levels and the fans?
Do they even care about the future if the Club?
Or simply do they just want to make sure they get as much money out as possible before cutting and running?

Changed for next season
Handball rules among those changed by Ifab for next season
By Stephen Couse
BBC Sport Scotland in Aberdeen
4 hours agoFrom the sectionFootball 58
Neymar's disallowed goal in the 2015 Champions League final is referred to in the new rules
Goals scored or created with the use of an accidental handball will not stand from next season onwards, the International FA Board (Ifab) have confirmed.
The changes mean that a free-kick will be awarded when a goal or clear chance occurs from a handball.
Ifab technical director David Elleray explained the changes at their AGM in Aberdeen.
"Deliberate handball remains an offence," Elleray stressed.
"In the past we've managed to improve the laws by focusing on outcome rather than intent.
"What we are looking at particularly in attacking situations is where the player gets a clear unfair advantage by gaining possession or control of the ball, as a result of it making contact with their hand or arm."
Standard of Scottish refereeing "very high" - InfantinoSo what has changed?
The changes mean gaining control or possession and then scoring as a consequence of handling the ball will not be allowed - neither will a goal scored directly from handling the ball, regardless of intent.
Another change to the laws of the game means that if the player's arms extend beyond a "natural silhouette", handball will be given, even if it is perceived as accidental.
Elleray says this is an effort to put an end to defenders placing their arms behind their backs in fear of giving away a free-kick.
"We've changed it to say the body has a certain silhouette," said Elleray. "If the arms are extended beyond that silhouette then the body is being made unnaturally bigger, with the purpose of it being a bigger barrier to the opponent or the ball.
"Players should be allowed to have their arms by their side because it's their natural silhouette."
In other changes approved by Ifab, substitutes will have to leave the pitch at the nearest goalline or touchline instead of walking to their technical area in a bid to stop time wasting.
Additional approved law changes included measures to deal with attacking players causing problems in the defensive wall, giving a dropped ball in certain situations when the ball hits the referee and the goalkeeper only being required to have one foot on the line at a penalty kick.

|Fans leader and leadership body required|
at 19:26 3 Feb 2019
I've read a lot of threads and posts on here today but it has been very hard work.
Threads are going in all directions but what is clear is that there is a huge amount of distrust and disenchantment with the current situation.
By their own inaction over really the last 7 years, the Trust has lost the respect of a lot of fans and by their increasing inaction since the sale by the sellouts their self respect has dwindled further.
There is a dire need for everyone to pull together, a leader to emerge, and a body to fight the interests of the fans to be formed. That should have been the Trust but that doesn't seem possible now.

|Where do we go from here? What protest?|
at 22:09 31 Jan 2019
What is the best way to show our displeasure to Jenkins and the owners whilst still backing Potter and the remaining players?
The sell outs and the owners have to realise the anger of the fans
