Did we really wear this shirt?

Scroll down to the photo.

It's terrible. If we had a poll of the worst ones we've ever had it's got to be a contender.

UPDATE. Although the link (from 2017) they provided is funny and true. Does any family here have Swans oven gloves?

A spokeman said that "The programme discriminates against the beliefs of Muslim children, parents, family values."

No gay Muslims?

Is Shelvey on his way out from Newcastle?
at 09:25 2 Mar 2019

Benitez plays a 2-player midfield and Shelvey is now his 5th choice, with Ki Sung-Yeung being preferred ahead of him. Wasn't it only last year that Shelvey was being considered for the England squad?

What actually happened in the Tonypandy Riots
at 02:14 22 Feb 2019

The original thread has now veered into Salisbury and Novichuk, so I thought that I'd post here a brief account of the Riots written by Welsh writer Phil Carradice on the centenary in 1910. It's in three parts and it's worth clicking on the link for the photo of Tonypandy men in 1910.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/waleshistory/2010/11/tonypandy_riots_1910.html

And one thing all of us can agree on is that the mine owners were greedy, callous b*st*rds.

It's an annual event that actually lasts a fortnight and has now started. Here's the link if you want to see what's on offer.

And here's the calendar and events map:

Keep an eye out for if they're showing the FA Cup match. They have a very large screen but can only show it if it's on BBC or ITV - they don't have Sky or BT.

Tough run of fixtures in Feb and March
at 18:24 11 Feb 2019

We've a tough run of fixtures coming up at a point where we might be distracted by the Cup - five of our next seven are Away matches, and five of the seven are against teams who are higher up the league. The last of them against Forest (30 March) is a week before the FA Cup semi-finals.

With all that in mind how many points do you expect us to get? My own prediction is 10 by winning both home games and picking up points in a couple of away games.

Leeds - Away - 0 points
Sheff Wed - Away - 3 points
Bolton - Home - 3 points
Norwich - Away - 1 point
West Brom - Away - 0 points
Derby - Home - 3 points
Notts Forest - Away - 0 points

A-Z of Swansea on a Millwall fans forum
at 14:20 6 Feb 2019

https://millwall-forum.vitalfootball.co.uk/threads/a-to-z-of-swansea-city.31778/

Interesting. Presumably the Millwall fan who posted this, named Moody, is also a Swans fan? Does he post on this site as well?

I've been lurking on their forums and they are surprisingly pessimistic about the result, presumably because of the way they lost to us at Millwall. Personally, I'm worried that our midfield will be overrun, and they've had a decent series of results in the last few weeks.

Our team in September was Mulder, Roberts, van der Hoorn, Rodon, Olsson (Montero, 66), James (Carroll, 60), Fer (Naughton, 35), Grimes, Celina, Baker-Richardson, and McBurnie.

Where did this money go?
at 03:54 6 Feb 2019

OK, to prove competence to discuss high finance, first answer this maths question.

I and 2 pals went to the local Wetherspoons at the start of a pub crawl and each of us stuck £10 behind the bar to run a tab. So that's £30 in total.


When we were leaving, the barman (a real dodgy geezer, probably from London) realised that we had spent only £25. He quietly took £2 for himself and gave £1 back to each of us.

So, there was £30 in the pot to start with. £10 minus £1 = £9, times the three of us equals £27. The barman had kept £2 for himself. £27 + £2 = £29. I Demand To Know What's Happened To The Missing £1!

The first one to answer correctly becomes the new Swansea Director of Finance.

And only then can we talk about this mythical missing £61 million.

Recommended pubs in Brentford
at 19:04 3 Dec 2018

Please put your own recommendations below, because there are lots of excellent pubs in Brentford and Ealing.

The most important thing to note is that ALL pubs in Brentford are Away Fans Friendly, and I’ve personally confirmed with the bar staff in all of these places that they welcome Away Fans.

Also, the ground is only 3 miles from Fullers Brewery so most of these will be selling their beers.

Don’t plan to eat in any of the “4 corner pubs” because some of them don’t serve meals and all of them will be standing room only. The following would be better options.

If you arrive at Brentford Railway Station, there’s a large pleasant pub next door in Orchard Road called the King’s Arms. They have TVs showing sport. The landlady said that “away fans are very welcome”. There’s only one bitter (Fuller’s London Pride) but a wide range of lagers. Bar snacks only on Saturdays. This is also a B&B.

On leaving there’s a 5-minute walk to the next pub, walk up hill to the Great West Road, cross over and turn right and then left into Windmill Road to call in at The Globe (owned by Fullers). It’s an attractive pub that has Sky Sports on 4 large screens. One of the staff is a Swans fan (the ginger Irishman in his 20s) who said that “the meals are Vegan friendly and the pub is away fans friendly.”

From here it’s less than a minute’s walk to the Lord Nelson in Enfield Road. It’s another Fullers pub that serves meals and is a bit more hipster than the previous pubs, Louisiana Gumbo anyone? Real ales, craft beers, and one large screen. From here it’s a 5-minute walk to the ground.
