The 52 points / 80 points relegation / promotion progress report
at 12:51 19 Sep 2018

In the last five seasons 52 points would have been enough to avoid relegation, which is 11 points in every 10 matches.

In the last seasons 80 points would have been enough to get into the play offs, which is 17 points in every 10 matches.

So here are our targets:

After 10 matches: 11 points; 17 points.

After 20 matches: 22; 34.

After 30 matches: 33; 51.

After 40 matches: 44; 68.

After 46 matches: 52 points: 80 points.

We need people like The Res and E20
at 14:48 7 Sep 2018

In any part of life we need people who disagree with the majority view even if they're wrong - it forces everyone to defend their positions and think more deeply about them rather than just constantly agreeing with each other. That's why most newspapers used to have a regular columnist from the other political party to stir up the readers.

Attention non-Brit fans: recommended website

OK, I just bought the "The Football League Paper" to try and get my Swans fix and find out who everyone is. It surprised me by being good. People can subscribe to it at www.theleaguepaper.com (I have nothing to do with them, this is an unbiased recommendation).

What other websites can people recommend?

How difficult for you was it watch the Swans now that we are no longer PL, how did you do it?

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 £98.5 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?
