The following statement will be published shortly on the Trust website.
'The Swansea City Supporters' Trust would firstly like to congratulate Huddersfield Town Football Club and its Supporters’ Association on confirming its status in the Premier League for another season, unfortunately for us almost certainly at our expense.
When Swansea City were promoted to the Premier League in 2011, we were similarly unfancied to remain in the division. However, we confounded our critics by playing an exciting brand of football on our way to safety, at the expense of more established Premier League clubs who were on a downward trajectory.
It is with sadness that the Supporters’ Trust notices the parallels between our current situation and that of those clubs relegated seven years ago. As a football club we have lost our footballing way and our footballing identity, making poor, usually reactionary, decisions time and time again. The Swansea Way, for so long a source of considerable pride, has not existed for some time
The Supporters’ Trust has previously urged the majority owners of Swansea City Football Club to implement a full review of the running of the footballing side of the club. We have also previously expressed a lack of confidence in Huw Jenkins and called for his removal as Chairman of our football club. Our concerns were well justified and the view of the Supporters’ Trust remains the same in this regard.
The Supporters’ Trust urges the majority owners to take this opportunity to learn from the mistakes of the last few years and implement the necessary changes to ensure our football club regains its sense of identity. If we fail to do so, there is more chance we will struggle further rather than regroup quickly and challenge to regain the Premier League status we have now almost certainly lost.'
As mentioned in our recent email to members, we will be issuing a statement next week relating to the Trust's shareholding and the next steps.

Were smiling last night when the League 1 results meant that for the first time AFC Wimbledon will be playing in a higher division than MK Dons next season.

Banned for our game. He’s been one of Chelsea’s best players this season.
Every little helps.

Apart from our game we have:
Bournemouth v Palace
Brighton v Huddersfield
Leicester v Newcastle
Stoke v Tottenham
Arsenal v Southampton
Chelsea v West Ham
All home wins except for an away win at Stoke would be very nice indeed.

Undoubtedly the most flaky of the big six.
Next two PL fixtures are Stoke and Southampton at the Emirates. They play CSKA Moscow on Thursday and the following Thursday in the competition that offers them a chance to win silverware and quality for the CL.
Let's hope they turn up for the league games.

Huddersfield had 30 shots on Saturday; 11 were blocked, and only four were on target. Since Carlos Carvalhal was appointed on December 28, only five Premier League clubs have conceded fewer goals (11). In the 20 games before, only five clubs had conceded more (31).
