Grateful thanks to Oldjack for linking to this when I couldn't. And listen to the lyrics, which are perfect for us right now.

|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?

|Please wouldn a Welsh speaker translate this|
at 13:18 21 Apr 2018
Am in a pub in Twickenham drinking Gwynt y Ddraig cider. My friend asked what that means and I guessed at 'Breath of the Dragon'. She's now looked on Google Translate which says Gwynt = Wind. Is that correct?
|Grand National _ any good long shots for an each-way bet?|

I'm looking for a horse that may be slow but will probably jump most of the fences. Something around 25 to 1, or 33 to 1. It's to keep a young nephew interested in the race. Any recommendations please?
|Train delays this Saturday - London / Swansea|

London Paddington to Cardiff Central or Swansea, services will be diverted (adding up to 40 minutes to the usual journey time) and wonâ€™t call at Didcot Parkway or Swindon; trains will call at Patchway instead of Bristol Parkway on Saturdays 14 April and 26 May, plus Monday 28 May."

THE GUARDIAN: Swans still swimming in the right direction
Carlos Carvalhalâ€™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: â€śWe 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 weâ€™re swimming so itâ€™s not bad, but we still feel we need swim faster and we need more points to stay up. I donâ€™t have a number [of points needed], donâ€™t ask me, I donâ€™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 hasnâ€™t won many games can win their last three games and achieve nine points and produce a surprise.â€ťÂ

|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)
Milanâ€™s interest in a player is no longer quite the stamp of approval it once was, but the suggestion that Gennaro Gattusoâ€™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
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.
|Do we still have Korean tourists?|
at 20:19 11 Feb 2018
The last couple of years, on the Paddington train, I used to see Koreans coming to support Ki, but not this year. Are they still around?
