Why all the love for Graham Potter?
at 20:54 23 May 2018

He's done well in a weak league playing on plastic pitches, and has had some giant killing wins in the Europa League. I'd still prefer a young manager with Championship or L1 experience. Are L1 players better or worse than what he currently has?

The League paid Swansea ÂŁ98.5 million for this season
at 18:38 17 May 2018

UPDATE - THIS IS A FERDY. MAKE YOUR COMMENTS ON DARRAN'S THREAD BELOW.

In other news, if as expected West Brom appoint Derren Moore as manager, then I think we should very seriously consider Dean Smith of Brentford who had been one of their targets.

Smith is the right age (47), is experienced in the Championship, and his team play attractive passing football. All we would then need to find someone called Jones as his deputy and we'll be all set (shouldn't be too hard to do that in Wales).

10 Positives about being relegated
at 17:24 13 May 2018

It's not the end of the world. If, when we were promoted, we'd been offered seven seasons we would have grabbed it with both hands.

1. We'll win more than the 8 matches that we did this season. Travelling a couple of hundred miles to a match we knew we would lose (and back again afterwards) was never pleasant. Now for one season at least we'll be the big boys.
2. It will give opportunities for the reserves to break through.
3. Playing 46 matches rather than 38 gives an extra 12 hours of game time to cheer the Swans.
4. Bristol City is now our nearest rival instead of West Brom ... less travelling.
5. Er ... London Lisa will now be able to stroll to the Fulham ground and me to Brentford, both nice clubs.
6. We'll get to see Routledge and Dyer for another season. Thanks to jackfath for suggesting this.
7. ....... OK, I've got nothing. Any ideas?

New Updated Predictions Leage Table
at 12:33 2 Apr 2018

Thanks to Huw57 for recommending this predictor.

http://www.worldfootball.net/table_calculator/eng-premier-league/

So, will Swansea avoid relegation and where will they finish? Will it go to the last day of the season? Who goes down?

We tried this a couple of weeks ago, but let’s do it again. Here are everyone’s predictions from last time:

https://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/swanseacity/forum/218198/prediction-time-

For myself, I see Swansea finishing 14th with 38 points and being safe with a couple of matches to go, mainly because of a collapse in form of the relegated sides.

Those relegated are Southampton and Stoke (both on 31 points) and West Brom (24 points).

A swan is not a fish
at 10:31 2 Apr 2018

He knows football and is good at languages. But I do wonder about his grasp of biology.

THE GUARDIAN: Swans still swimming in the right direction

Carlos Carvalhal’s side remain three points above the drop zone with seven games left after this defeat at Manchester United. But the former Wednesday manager has the Swans functioning as a unit and should, surely, avoid relegation. Of the recovery from bottom place when he took over at Christmas, Carvalhal said: “We are swimming now, absolutely, and this is good because if you go below the [relegation] line sometimes the sharks push you down and you can go last position. But so far we’re swimming so it’s not bad, but we still feel we need swim faster and we need more points to stay up. I don’t have a number [of points needed], don’t ask me, I don’t know. I am not a person to do that because the best way is to try to win the next game, because you never know in football. A team that hasn’t won many games can win their last three games and achieve nine points and produce a surprise.”

Is Ki underrated
at 17:25 24 Mar 2018

The Observer today has an article about 10 underrated players. As well as Ben Davies at Spurs they include Ki.

Ki Sung-yueng (Swansea City)

Milan’s interest in a player is no longer quite the stamp of approval it once was, but the suggestion that Gennaro Gattuso’s lot are keen on signing Ki Sung-yueng when his Swansea contract expires in the summer is at least an indication that the South Korean midfielder is handy. Which, of course, is a conclusion you could reach by watching him. An economical passer, Ki is one of those midfielders who keeps the ball moving, is stronger than his skinny frame suggests and was a key man as they escaped relegation last season. If they are to avoid that fate again, he will have to perform in similar fashion.

Prediction time _ final matches
at 23:08 12 Feb 2018

https://thefishy.co.uk/calc.php

Thanks to Jesus Jack for reminding us about this from the Grimsby site. Make your predictions and see if we stay up.

Personally, I was lazy and only predicted the Swans results and let the computer randomly choose the results for the other teams (it's claimed that those results are based on current form).

With my choices, Swansea end with 38 points and comfortably stay up with a couple of matches to spare. But when I ran it three times, the relegated teams (chosen with random results remember) were different each time except for West Brom who were always relegated.

Your turn.
