Leicester fans are a bunch of whimps
at 18:43 20 Feb 2017

Sorry if this is a ferdy. Leicester fans have made complaints to the club and the FA about a bit of abuse from the lovely fans of Millwall. Who'd have thought that Millwall would be a cause of trouble? Those lovely pie and mash people? Really? Truthfully, who in loving fug would go to the Den and not expect to get abuse? http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/lcfc-complain-to-fa-following-clash-with-millw w Was weak with laughter when I heard it on the news earlier

Which I know has absolutely no place on here but we are still only 3 wins off moving above Leicester.
2 wins and we're out of the relegation zone providing others lose. Which shows exactly how poor the PL is the season. We should have been really cut adrift by now.
If our players decide to start fighting sometime soon, we get a halfway decent coach in and Captain Beaky is allowed no-where near the transfer market (otherwise we'll get Adomah!) we may just be rebuilding in the Prem next season. Not in the Championship
Now provided we can then keep a halfway decent coach, Beaky is replaced by someone who has even the slightest idea of what constitutes a PL player, we may just be able to get back to the mid-table mediocrity we were at under Loudstrop.
Under Brad we were screwed and down. I had fully accepted we were Championship next season a few weeks ago. Only brightside was, more games for my ST money. Oh and going out of the FL cup a round earlier
If we go down, with the contract extensions handed out and the lack of quality brought in by Jenkins over the last few windows, we may possibly go straight through. Let's hope the new owners can see it this way as well

Quo gig
at 18:18 17 Dec 2016

Just back from the Quo gig in Birmingham last night. Superb. Really good gig. The responsible one absolutely loved it as well. REO speedwagon were really excellent as well. Hadn't seen them since the mid 80's Totally different atmosphere in Birmingham City centre after the gig to what I remember of Wind St from just 3 years ago on Black Friday- no sign of trouble without a heavy visible Police presence. Work mates/ friends (must have been thousands) etc well oiled and everyone having fun. How I used to remember Swansea from a decade or so ago. All I remember from Wind St a few years ago was fight after fight breaking out. Well done and thanks for a good night Brum!

Football being killed off by technology and social media
at 20:18 25 Oct 2016

Just came across this article in the Telegraph about people losing interest in the game.
Also goes on about the stupid transfer fees meaning more and more people are just turning their backs on the lot.
Our sell out b'stards certainly haven't helped our cause with poor transfer window after poorer window

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/10/25/modern-technology-is-in-danger-of

Could the reason actually be "overkill" with the amount of games.
I know I start losing interest and really don't feel like watching West Brom V Watford or any other mediocre teams, such as Boro, Sunderland etc.
probably even include us to non Swans fans

Silly season is on us already
at 21:56 12 Sep 2016

We used to get a month or two off of transfer talk when the window shut.
These f**king news outlets can't wait to spend everyone's money.
Sh1te site at least

http://www.footballtransfertavern.com/premiership/liverpool/liverpool-already-ey

"Still, reports from Italian website Calciomercato mooting a shock transfer target has sparked debate amongst our Merseyside locals.

They suggest the Kop titans are ALREADY casting an eye over Swansea City midfielder Leroy Fer, after the Dutchman made a good start to life in Wales."

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-3780337/Roberto-Martinez-wins-

"Roberto Martinez wins astonishing£10m pay-off from Everton for sacking... and it could have been more
Everton sacked Roberto Martinez in May with three years left on his deal
The Spaniard, 43, received an eye-watering one-off severance payment
Martinez wanted the £12m he was due to receive, but settled at £10m
He agreed to a reduction if his payment was made in one instalment
Martinez had signed a five-year deal in July 2014 after a great first term
Chairman Bill Kenwright had agreed to a deal that warned off other clubs"


Know he had 3 years left on his contract but yet another sign of the inherent madness in the PL.
Not sure how long/ much longer all these costs will remain sustainable by any club.
Soon as people become switched off from the PL, then no TV company is going to be chucking £Billions at the game

15 players binned

Same number as Liverpool and 11 less than Chelsea

S'pose most of ours were absolute dross.
Chelsea's dross will probably help a club gain promotion as Scotty did for us!

Can't watch any of the posted videos
at 08:24 12 Aug 2016

Guessing this problem has been answered numerous times, but the search function on here isn't coming up with anything.

I can't watch any of the videos posted.
Settings are to "images and videos shown" but just getting a black patch with nothing on it.
Can't see any other settings to adjust
Was watching them up to the last weekend
No problem watching on any other sites eg you tube and the like.
AV programmes haven't blocked it as far as I can tell. That and they'd block all sites wouldn't they?.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.
Will check everything tonight and try and sort it out

With Tabanou
at 12:48 26 May 2016

seemingly changing his tune about the PL and us, does anyone think we could actually get to see the player that we originally signed?
Can't see many offers above a few hundred grand for him after his showing last season.

Sorry, not that good a site
http://sportwitness.ning.com/forum/topics/swansea-trying-to-offload-player-he-ch

Tabanou largely blamed Swansea for his failure at the club, telling L'Equipe in January that he felt let down: "Honestly, yes. I had gone to Swansea to get to the next level, to get my foot in the Premier League and to then go higher. Unfortunately, it didn't happen the way I wanted. They did not give me my chance. I do not understand. And I think, if I had stayed, my situation wouldn't have changed. The club is in a terrible situation and despite that, they never let me play."

"Tactically, they are not at the top. They have their players, they will fight until the last minute. This is not the way I play."

By March, with things not going perfectly back on loan at Saint Etienne, Tabanou had very much changed his tune: "The Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world. I know I have what it takes to impose myself there. I see no reason why it wouldn’t work.”

“In France, there are certain days where we take it easy, others when we’ll work on tactics. In England, the tempo is always high. I arrived with a French mentality. I don’t think it’s worse, just different. More relaxed maybe.

“That doesn’t mean I cheat during games. During the training week, yes, I’m relaxed. I now know I can’t be like that. At Swansea, they also wanted that I change my style of defending. They’re more physical, while I bank more on anticipation. I know what I need to do to get my spot in the team.”

Not sure if he's worth a pre-season and get rid at the end of the transfer window (loan market) if he's still a bag of sh1te
Fresh attitude, willing to try. Possibilities?
