Are we any better than other supporters ?
Written by Andyconky on Friday, 30th Oct 2020 09:37

I've found Twitter recently rather than other social media platforms and really found myself questioning it?

Firstly I should say that everyone is entitled to an opinion as its exactly that, however I have had the audacity have a different opinion on Andre Ayew for example and also on Steve Cooper.

On Twitter the response sometimes is way out there. I'm never quite sure why my credentials as a Swans fan need to questioned or why people need to try and belittle people for a different viewpoint to theirs.

Is this just a case of people in general being braver from behind a keyboard, or maybe being provocative in the hope of gaining followers on their social media platform.

I for one love being able to get Swans information at a click from deepest darkest Yeovil but feel that comes at a price as people always seem to want to knock others who, like anyone actually involved at the club see the players every day and are professional people, and are probably far more informed that the rest of us.

We can all offer an opinion on team selection but we just don't know what's happened that week in terms of availability, injuries, different set up in terms of opposition, resting players or even god forbid their personal life. The reaction can be anything from 'strong selection' to 'he doesn't know what he's doing'.

Well that's the point 'he probably knows more than you or I.

The fans of Swansea city via the SCST are proposing to take the other owners of the club to court. This is disgraceful. The trust stated on many occasions that they did not want to sell their holding. They now wish to sell their entire holding as a matter of principle. They have been very badly managed with no strategy or philosophy. If they go ahead with the case the club will suffer and loca jobs will be lost. The Swansea fans the the SCST as a trade union not as owners. Not only are they not any better they are far worse on the current trajectory.

Fifty years ago yesterday, Colchester United of the 4th Division pulled off the greatest cup giant-killing ever, beating 1st Division Leeds United 3-2 at Layer Road. Watched by 16,000, and the Match of the Day cameras, Dick Graham’s U’s, a rag-tag band of mostly aging journeymen, defied the odds to defeat arguably the greatest club side in Europe at the time. “The greatest cup giant-killing ever” is a bold claim, and over the years various football magazines and websites have run their own polls of which was the greatest. Whilst that day at Layer Rd always features, as the years have gone by other feats fresher in the memory have been put forward as a candidate – we probably all remember Ronnie Radford’s screamer against Newcastle, Sutton’s exploits, or even Bradford City quite recently at Stamford Bridge – but these pale into insignificance when you pause to reflect on the Don Revie side that we beat that day. Sprake, Cooper, Charlton, Hunter, Lorimer, Giles etc – all full internationals, all household names – the only one missing was Billy Bremner, and that was because he was injured. By comparison, all we had to offer was Ray Crawford – at his peak arguably on a par with some in the Leeds side, but that peak had been ten years earlier playing for Ipswich and England. Eleven heroes didn’t just try and hold out against Leeds United, they took the game to their illustrious opponents with such tenacity, grit and no small amount of flair, and before we knew it, the U’s were 3-0 in the lead. As legs tired, Leeds got back into the game with goals from Hunter and Giles, but we held firm – typified at the death by Graham Smith pulling off an impossible save to ensure the U’s achieved [b][u]the greatest cup giant-killing ever![/b][/u]

And so the dust settles on another transfer window closing, and despite (my) expectations that the possibility of incoming business was going to be remote, we have instead seen a veritable flurry of activity, with no less than three coming in. Big Frank Nouble, making a very welcome return on loan from Plymouth Argyle, of course needs no introduction. Neither really does feisty Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu, here on loan last season, and this time signed full-time from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee. Actually paying hard cash for someone did come as a surprise, presumably offset by the sale of Cohen Bramall to Lincoln for a similarly undisclosed fee. However, the fact that the Addicks have insisted on not only a sell-on clause, but a rarely used buy-back clause too, suggests (a) Wiredu’s signing fee probably wasn’t too high, and (b) Charlton are protecting those finances with these clauses. The last one, which would have been a complete surprise for me were it not for a contact leaking me the news earlier yesterday, is left-back Josh Doherty on loan from Crawley. Josh was only announced once outgoing left-back Bramall was confirmed, and presumably his loan is directly related to part-time fashion model, TV and radio celeb and former left-back Mark Wright signing for Crawley on a non-contract game-by-game basis in December. We have also released seven from the academy, Ollie Kensdale, Miquel Scarlett, Sammie McLeod, Michael Fernandes, Ollie Sims, Danny Collinge and Matt Weaire, and I’m sure we all wish them the best for the future.
