May as well keep an eye on it. Good coverage on the WM and some nice mentions of our style and success on Call Rob. BBC Wales â€śnews magazineâ€ť programmeâ€™s sports bulletin - just the darts and some PL news but no mention of the Swans.
"Swansea City have some really talented players, notably Andre Ayew, Connor Roberts and Marc Guehi. But their squad isn't as strong as Cardiff's. Not by any stretch of the imagination."
His imagination?? This man is supposed to be journalist??? They are stronger in one area and that's up front but they can't even give him any service. And he's not the type of forward we'd ever buy anyway? Bizzaro from Abandonallhope.
I started writing this on the match thread but thought this deserved a thread of its own. Iâ€™ve just seen the highlights of the game yesterday and as some had already hinted he was definitely man of the match.
I remember him last season stuttering a little when he got to the halfway line And looking a little lost when the left winger got in his way. Even then though it was evident that he had the best cross at the club, very good at delivering the ball into danger areas on a very consistent basis. If we had Llorente last season he would have lapped up that service and with his heading ability would have scored a hatful.
Now watching the highlights back in the bask of the post victorious glow it was a joy watching him own the entirety of his side of the pitch. Dominant in both defence and attack heâ€™d already caused problems for Preston before his harshly disallowed goal and his ball into the box for the winner was sublime. He played with an air of confidence and authority which was lovely to see.
And thatâ€™s not all - his physicality being built like a tank and bravery means he never shirks tackles and Is a proper team player. I know weâ€™ve questioned the Transfer dealings and lack of any real gems coming in but Bidwell is beginning to show that as a free transfer heâ€™s not only now one of the first name on the team sheet (I know every other LB has gone but Naughton can definitely play there) but proving himself one of our best signings over the last few seasons. It puts undue pressure on him now but I hope one day our fans will think of his signing as Rangel - esque - Iâ€™m going to get slaughtered for that but itâ€™s certainly a possibility for the future if he carries on his consistent level of performance that heâ€™s showing.
Could he be the best left wing back in the division - quite possibly. I even think he his character and leadership qualities could make him a prospective future Swans captain. But for now Iâ€™d just like to say a massive â€śwell doneâ€ť to him and wish him an excellent and injury free season. Any thoughts?
P.S. I actually loved his cynical take down of the Bristol City player away to them last year. It was a trip on half way but if heâ€™d got past him we were in trouble. Shades of Tommy Smith lol?
... did anyone else on here go to the 50th Anniversary fireworks display on the beach? Seem to be a good few thousand down there and the display was superb (even after a 25 minute pause due to a malfunction). Hope they figure a way to charge a minimal amount and put them on down there every year from now on.
I must say though I was surprised by the amount of people bringing their dogs though
I looked on the site and even though Iâ€™m an ST holder with JA membership it still quoted me 39 pounds. Fancy going on the train , TrainSplit returns from 103 pounds. If 4 go do can you get a family ticket (4 for the price of 3)?
Anyone on here fit or has fitted mains powered smoke alarms? I had mine since 2003 and Iâ€™ve had to disable them as they were going off continuously. I took the pp3 batteries out but still they kept going. Is there a battery/transformer inside these units which acts as the main power supply? Can these be changed or are new alarms the best answer? Thanks in advance
Need a tradesman to line an airing cupboard and stick a clothes rail in there. Shouldnâ€™t be a massive job and would have to be a Friday or Saturday job as I work away in the week. Any help in finding one much appreciated. No YouTube clips of â€śyesterday once moreâ€ť required though thanks lol
Had two next to me. One in the rows behind us openly celebrated their third goal but the stewards were more interested in having a go at our fans who were remonstrating with him. Were these isolated incidents or as I suspect was this quite widespread? Either way a shameful indictment on our own ST holders who couldnâ€™t be bothered to turn up to watch is in a home FA cup QF .
