Sanches will need time
at 16:57 10 Sep 2017

Sanches is going to need a bit of time.

Clearly low on confidence, second guessing himself all the time and then making a decision that was probably inbetween what his options were, and under hitting a pass. Also not match fit. The sharpness, or lack of, very noticeable. This is where Clement comes in and I think will tell him that he doesn't have to do anything spectacular every touch, keep it simple and surely the confidence will flow back after a few games

He has barely played in the last year however and has only been with the squad a few days plus the fact we must remember he is barely 19 years old. We need a few weeks patience with him and hope the fans don't get on his back due to the huge expectations on his shoulders, certainly looks like this will be a slow burner - but his quality is clear.

Where can you find full matches on tinternet?
at 13:45 3 Sep 2017

I want to watch 70th - 75th minute of yesterdays Wales match with the english commentary, as they recognised the moment and were quiet the whole time during thr anthem.

I have found the full first half on youtube but nothing from the second.

That spontaneous anthem/woodburn goal is special. However all the clips doing the rounds on various places start halfway through it. Doesn't give the full effect.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Welsh National anthem
at 21:19 2 Sep 2017

Anyone noticed when it is spontaneously sung halfway through a match, we tend to score like 10 seconds later.

Happened when we played Belgium last year in the qualifying group and several times since including at the Euros.

Just happened now and turned to my colleagues and said ''we usually score a few seconds after the anthem is sung''... Woodburn steps up an hammers one in from 25 yards seconds later.

weird.

So how will we line up?
at 13:06 31 Aug 2017

Where do we think Sanches will fit in? I have got him as our holding midfield player but would be happy switching him and Clucas and allowing him a more attacking role too. Thoughts?


------------------- Fabianski ----------------
..........VDH....Fernandez....Mawson.....
...Naughton..........................Olsson...
..................Renato Sanches.............
.........Ayew.......................Clucas.....
..................Tammy.........................
......................Bony........................


Only concerns are center back. VDH scares me, had a decent game last showing but will have to keep that up for a good few games to ease my concerns. And playing Tammy behind Bony will take away Tammys greatest strength in my opinion which is his natural strikers instincts and predatory tendancies in the box.

What it does show however is there is going to be few chances for Mesa this season. What a strange signing. Certainly has the feel of a Borja type signing. We could have spent that on a quality center half.

The overwhelming feeling I have looking at this side however is that we certainly should not be competing at the wrong end of the league this year come the final few weeks of the season.

Llorente to Spurs
at 00:20 31 Aug 2017

Huge price move. Chelsea still favourites but Spurs coming in strong.

Looks like either way he is off. 9/1 odds of him staying with 24 hours to go is too big to be wrong IMO

That is how you replace a player with a system
at 18:53 26 Aug 2017

A lot of people on here could not fathom how a system could replace a player. Today was a fine example. Not a vintage display but we defended as a unit, kept possession, knocked the ball around and put the pressure on at the right times. As a result players such as Ayew got the chance to score when ordinarily they wouldn't.

So someone coming in doesn't have to replace the goals and assists of Siggy. The system change should replace the majority of them by allowing others to score more than they normally would, as long as the players that are brought in continue to be of sufficient standard. We do look two positions short, one at right wing back and another in the wide attacking midfield role.

I hope both get filled although suspect now that only maybe Arias will be brought in as well as the Bony/Llorente transfer.

Very positive.

Clucas deal specifics.
at 18:24 21 Aug 2017

I read the main Clucas thread and didnt see it clarified anywhere.

£16.5m is the total value of the package it is reported. I read one person say £15m + £1.5m in add-ons.. But where does that leave Kingsley? He is worth a couple of million surely?

£12m + £1.5m add ons + £3m Kingsley? =£16.5m.

Surely it isnt £16.5m AND Kingsley on top.... is it?

EDIT - just saw it in the Kingsley thread funnily enough. Ignore this!

Our new way of playing
at 13:56 19 Aug 2017

Regardless of result. That is one of the most positive, encouraging and exciting displays for a long time, against one of the best Man United sides for years. And it is a formation and style they are still adapting to.

Pace in the pass, fluid movement and organisation at the back.

There should be nobody left with any doubt that Clement is moving this team in the right direction away from the set piece rubbish we have become accustomed to.

With a few signings we will be fine.

Swansea join chase for £25m rated forward.
at 10:13 2 Aug 2017

Swansea City are the latest side to be linked with the Leicester City winger, after Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Bournemouth.

Swansea City are 'in the hunt' to sign Leicester City winger Demarai Gray, joining Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Bournemouth, according to The Sun (August 2, page 46).

It was reported earlier this week that Gray has held talks with Leicester to discuss a possible transfer away from the King Power Stadium (Sky Sports).

The 21-year-old has previously expressed his frustration about his lack of game time since joining the Foxes 18 months ago.

And Swansea are the latest club to be linked with rescuing the player, who The Sun reports is valued at £25 million by Craig Shakespeare's team.

The Swans could lose Gylfi Sigurdsson - a former Tottenham player - to Everton this summer, with a £50 million deal mooted (The Guardian).

And should the Toffees' pursuit prove successful, the Welsh side should have little trouble meeting the above valuation for Gray, who could potentially replace the Iceland international.

But Tottenham could pose the biggest threat to both Swansea and Everton's chances, as they can offer the England Under-21 star Champions League football this coming campaign.

Real Betis bid for Swansea target Boudebouz
at 12:34 31 Jul 2017

Real Betis have made a £6.25million offer for Newcastle United and Swansea City target Ryad Boudebouz.

The 27-year-old was in fine form for Montpellier last season and ended the campaign with 11 Ligue goals.

Now, the Algerian is looking for a fresh challenge and he has attracted plenty of interest from clubs in England.

Newcastle and Swansea are both actively tracking Boudebouz, but he has also been linked to West Ham in the past.

But, according to France Football, it is Real Betis who have acted first by submitting a £6.25m formal offer for the attacking midfielder.

The Spanish club are hoping to steal a march on their rivals by placing the bid, however their actions could spark more approaches for the player.

As well as having admirers in England, Boudebouz is attracting interest from German club Bayer Leverkusen and Italian side Sampdoria.
