I wonder if relegation will prolong his career. His experience in the center could be valuable if we are to go down, although we would have to manage the amount he plays of course. What we do need is to bring pace back to the width. Maybe even Montero may do something in the Championship. Never thought I would be advocating the return of Montero but needs must.

A mention for Mawson too
at 17:36 10 Feb 2018

50th consecutive PL game today which is the longest current run for any player in the PL.

Has proved him self an ever dependable replacement for Ash who was clearly on his last legs.

Well done Alfie.

Yet again magnificent leading us to another victory. Work rate, energy, inventiveness, trickery. Superb player. Utterly shattered come the last 10 mins after working himself into the ground. Outstanding and set the standard for everyone else.

Always a bit skeptical with war movies and their embellishment, but if even half of that story was true - which I suspect so - then it is incredible. Very much like Lone Survivor if anyone has seen that. But it was the first 12 soliders "boots on the ground" in active combat against the Taliban after 9/11 and did it on horseback. There is now a statue at the World Trade Center in honour of the horseback fighters. Outnumbered 50,000 to about 2,000 local militia + the 12 Americans (and the significant help of B-52 blanket bombers!!).

Really was a good movie if that is your type of thing.

Carlvahal "I am an Owl"
at 10:03 7 Feb 2018

How refreshing to hear complete honesty for a change from managers and players. When asked how he feels about the next round he said that Sheffield Wednesday is his home, he still feels an Owl and will always feel an Owl - and hopes in time he feels he is a Jack or a Swan but the game will be special for him.

Some people may see that as a negative but it absolutely is not. I remember when Cardiff fans were wanting Jazz Richards dropped after the first game because he refused to do the Ayatollah, did they really think he would make Cardiff his team after a week? It woukd be forced and meaningless.

Lots of managers could have given the generic response to that question "Just another game bla bla" but he was completely honest and have no doubt that if given time he will feel must as much a Jack as an Owl.

Quickly becoming one of my favourite managers.

Todays relegation rivals:-
at 11:56 3 Feb 2018

Four other matches today that impact the relegation picture. Some teams winning may be better than them drawing but in most cases a draw will do just fine. Below, along with a Swans win will change the picture dramatically for us.

WBA v Saints is a real 6 pointer, we are sandwiched by both in the relegation zone.

Bournemouth v Stoke - anything but a Stoke win.
Brighton v West Ham - anything but a Brighton win.
Man Utd v Huddersfield - Man Utd win
West Brom v Southampton - anything but a Southampton win

FA Cup 5th round draw

Amazing to think how exciting this moment would be 15 years ago

Although it does seem to have got a little of its spark back this year, maybe I am imagining it.

Anyway, get your guesses in.

Positive performance
at 21:50 2 Jan 2018

Nothing like we have seen in years gone by but we could have easily scored 3 in that game. Their goal was a mile offside and only got their second as we were pushing forward, not to mention the fact they should have had a certain red card.

I have a positive feeling after watching that, just a shame that the league table looks the way it does. Some quick fire wins and we will have every chance.

Carvalhal breaks down tactical side of match
at 12:48 31 Dec 2017

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42523438

Nice to see a manager pro actively making observations and changing systems to combat it. I felt at time Clement did his ore match stuff and let the 90mins ride on that, I guess that is a coach mentality - Carvalhal is a manager.

Despite his erratic history. I have a lot of faith in this man.

YELLOW CARD

Watford 1-0 Swansea


''The Swans somehow get a corner from a throw-in that Watford fail to deal with properly.

Chance now to throw a few players forward...

No, you'd think they were 1-0 up in the 90th minute. Just the four men in the box and the visitors opt to go short, before losing it.

Tom Carroll grabs a nice handful of Abdoulaye Doucoure's shirt to stop a Watford break and adds his name to the list of bookings.''

Watford 1-0 Swansea


''Well, Swansea get the free-kick in a decent area and you'd think they'd fill the box, wouldn't you?

Instead they just send four men forward and Watford easily deal with Renato Sanches' floated delivery.''

Getting cut adrift now. Will the trigger get pulled?

Not even a win in the next game takes us out of the relegation zone. In serious danger of getting cut adrift with Liverpool and Spurs matches on the horizon.

Anyone think Clement gets the boot prior to New Year?

I cant see it. Change needed though, that is clear.

Vote of no confidence thread.

Not a member but will happily join again if this was to get off the ground.

Any members have any ideas how to do this?

Looks like the only way of stopping this deal now. I have asked several times what are the benefits of this deal, it cannot be continuing to have a voice as conceding drag rights will probably mean the Trust survives as an organisation for a shorter period than if it was to go legal. They are not long term owners.

...those who recommended the deal still have not answered.



Swans Trust,
12 Dynevor Avenue,
Neath,
SA10 7AG


I, the undersigned member, believe the current committee no longer represents the wishes of this organisation's members. I would like to register a vote of no confidence and ask you to call and extraordinary meeting of all Trust members so that we can be heard. We would like to table a motion that the following committee members should stand down and call an election at the earliest opportunity.

Alan Lewis
Stuart McDonald
Viv Brooks
Ron Knuszka
Cath Dyer
Viv Williams
Sian Davies

Yours,
