You'd think Swansea fans would have a better clue about the players at their club.

We will have to recall that young lad on loan to a LOW team his name eludes me.

Except the OP is correct, the others are not 1st Team players.

Jasper. You’ve spent the past few days, desperately trying to pretend that Rodon and Harris are members of the first team squad.

What are you trying to achieve here? And on whose behalf?

Because they are not. They may now have to step up, but until a few weeks ago, the club regarded the first team squad centre backs as being Mawson, Fernandez, VD Hoorn, Amat, Bartley.

Rodon and Harris were classed as development players.

That is a fact.

Naughton, Hoorn, Roberts and Olsson are the remaining defenders… I guess that we will see more U23 players visiting this season

They train with the first team. The went on the preseason tour. Rodon was on the bench last Saturday.

They weren't in the first team when we were a Premier League side with 5 senior alternatives, but that's not the situation any more. Like it or not they are part of Potter's squad in the Championship.

I repeat - I think Fulton could rise to the occasion for 2/3 games. Ki coped with the position, so why not Jay?

There you go Jasper.

Not even the club this morning regard them as first team players.

Unlike Byers, for example, who is included.

Rodon was on the bench Saturday. He’s very much a part of the first team. People were crying out for us to use u23s like James and Byers last year when we were crap. Now we’ve dropped down a level and look like we’ll be using some of them people are not happy.

The club stated specifically that it was taking some development players on the tour.

And the club website doesn’t appear to think they are first team players. Even this morning.

It’s indefensible. Stop defending it.

Jay Fulton? At centre back? Please God no

Give Rodon a run tomorrow,

He’s 20 now, he’s either good enough or he’s not so give him a run of games. Prefer that than putting a right back there.

JENKINS OUT

What am I defending? I don't think I've ever said selling our other defenders is good because Rodon and Harries exist.

edit: Actually one of my posts in another thread could be read that way...

Rodon being on the bench (alongside Amat let’s not forget) is one thing. Being a starting first choice is quite another.

He would have come on last week with two centre half injuries or one central midfield injury and one centre half.

On Saturday, he may well start, unless we use a non centre back as a centre back.

Every single time someone has mentioned only having one first team centre back you’ve been all over it like a rash.

People genuinely don't seem to be aware that we have the captain of Wales u21s and a player we bought for £250k (plus addons rising to £1m) on the books, and that they're both centrebacks. I'm performing a public service.

The weird thing is Lisa that there's a hue and cry over Ryan Woods - which I understand and somewhat support, but like it or not we do have some midfield options, especially Fer returning (soon please Leroy).

The critical position is CB, and the club would have known that given their intentions, and surely should have lined up cover for the CB position once Mawson, Amat and especially Fede were released. Or am I missing another high profile signing that broke down?

Yes, I agree. I said yesterda6 Woods for me was not the ke6 issue but centre back and forward was.

I think the issue with Woods is that Potter had seemingly made him the prime target. We had an agreement with the player, were only half a million off with fee, Fulton ready to go to Reading, and we still didn’t get it done.

So it’s a symbol of lack of support for the manager that’s caused the issue I think.

We were supposedly after McKenna before he tore his hamstring.

Made a loan enquiry for Cameron Carter-Vickers a week or so back as well (rumoured).

Do you know 100% that Amat would have come on before Rodon? No. Rodon played just as much in pre season. The whole situation is not ideal but we were always gonna have to rely on at least one of Rodon and Harries at some point this year. Man City we’re linked to Rodon in January so let’s see gow he goes.

They are aware. We have all mentioned them a number of times.

But Rodon didn’t exactly pull trees up at Cheltenham did he? There are good reports about him as one for the future. As there are with Harries. But that doesn’t make them first team players at this moment.
