Brewster
at 08:21 9 Mar 2020

Abraham scored 23 in 41 games in this league when he was 18/19. Brewster has scored 4 in 11. What makes you think he will go on to be better?

Abraham will be leading England's attack in a few weeks time. He is the number one striker at one of the top teams in the country.

The hype Swansea City fans provide to players or managers whilst here is laughable.

Is it 1 win in 15 games now for Mr Potter?

Replacing Laudrup wasn't a bad decision.

However, replacing him with Monk was. Hindsight wasn't needed to see why that was the case, especially at a time when Ronald Koeman was begging for the job via his agent in national newspapers.

They have already lost more games this season than the legendary Manchester United treble winners lost all season in 1998-1999. Will an English football side ever come close eclipsing the phenomenal 'treble' season? Unlikely.

Don't be silly, he worked miracles guiding us to mid table mediocrity last season according to many on here.

He scored the best goal of our Premier League run.

Here you again. Do you still think we should sign Woodman whatever the cost?

HS2
at 20:28 11 Feb 2020

Taken from elsewhere:

-HS2 prices will not be charged at a premium over the existing fast services, as they replace the existing fast services. This is stipulated in the hybrid bill, and is law.

- The project aim is to free up commuter, regional and freight capacity on existing lines, so the major beneficiaries will be commuters into London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds etc and regional services. This can be done by either adding new tracks to the existing routes to run the fast services on them instead, or by moving them to a new route. Adding tracks to existing routes has been costed at a higher cost than HS2.

- HS2 enables the reopening of branches and other routes not deemed suitable today, as one of the major barriers to doing so now is the lack of capacity at the lines and stations these routes would join.

- The £100bn+ cost includes the worst-case contingencies. It likely won't cost anywhere near as much, but it could if mismanaged.

- It's never been about speed, it's about increasing capacity. The name is definitely a PR disaster. In fact, HS1 was only called so towards the end of the project, and was known as the Channel Tunnel Rail Link beforehand.

- Despite speed not being the primary aim, it will be the fastest steel-wheel-on-rail railway outside of China. This is because the costs of doing so were negligible over a lower speed alignment, and the project is designed to be future-proofed with a potential upper speed limit of 400kmph/250mph.

- Part of the higher costs compared to other high speed railways comes down to the usage. Due to the capacity demands we have, HS2 will be the most intensely used stretch of high speed rail on earth, with 18 paths per hour in each direction.

It is looking likely that an extremely talented group of young English footballers won their World Cup through their individual talent, rather than the coaching ability of Steve Cooper.

It was a fantastic match for the neutrals who came to watch Wayne Rooney.

However for myself and the other 11,000 or so Swansea City fans in attendance, it was more of the same.

We struggled to create any chances. It took a horrendous goalkeeping error and an optimistic long shot to get ourselves on the scoresheet.

I dread to think about what shape our club will be in when Cooper eventually leaves. He's taking the club and most of our talented young players backwards.

Do you think Swansea City should be banned from buying any players until they pay back the people who they paid pennies on the pound to back when we had financial difficulties?

St John's Ambulance, local schools and many small businesses suffered.

Or does your logic only apply to Cardiff?

Have you not been paying attention since we were relegated? It is quite clear we can not afford to. Hence the complete overhaul of the team, replacing high earning players with teenagers or dross other teams at our level or below did not want.

How long can we continue selling or getting rid of every asset we have just to continue funding something no club in this division can sustain without going into debt over?

We simply cannot afford to run the academy in its current form anymore if we want to remain competitive in this division. Throwing another £1.5m at it is just a waste.

We can no longer go and spend hundreds of thousands to bring in players with potential from other teams (McBurnie, Byers, James etc). It's completely unnecessary now we cannot take full advantage of what it offers.

That set piece ended up about 4 yards off his goal line and still he was hesitant and managed to come out too late. He's incredibly overrated and often a liability.
