I’m happy to match STID’s £30 if we fail to get promoted.

Someone will have to remind me tho, but I’m sure there are enough on here that wouldn’t let me forget 😂😂

Well done.


Where are your buddies in this one?

Not fair for you to be taking all the burden.

I guess when push comes to shove they aren’t confident in Martin after all 🤷‍♂️

I’m happy to represent them and bet with every single person who thinks we will go up next season.

I’m amazed only STID and yourself have come forward after what we have been hearing for the past year.

Likewise from this side of the divide! it’s for a worthy cause and will give proper “I told you so “ opportunities at the end of the season.

For the coming season the glass is neither half empty or half full, it is at 50% and will remain as such until the next batch of evidence comes in.

That means that Martin has a full pre-season, he has the transfer window and then maybe until December, depending on how things are going. He has had quite a long settling in period, lots of people have given him more slack than other managers have had, he's been lucky. Some people were highly critical from the start and others again (myself included) gave him time but started to turn against him when the evidence showed there were problems of Martin's own making.

So now we go again, I reckon the split in opinion will be about the same as when the season ended but now surely Martin can't be allowed the excuses? Certainly he can't be repeating those excuses come December.

I want him to succeed, I want the entertaining football even if there's no promotion. But no more BS please. We have all seen where the teams failings have been, Martin has admitted the 3 at the back hasn't worked though it took him a long time to see what was said often on here. We may not have been pro footballers, we may not have any coaching badges (though some will, if not the top rated badges) but many of us have been watching the Swans for along time, 50 years in my case, we are not all mugs, not all stupid or blind, we can be wrong from time to time whichever side of the Martin fence we have been sat on but please don't BS us and don't patronise us.
