Since the swans had a penalty.
Prove me wrong Jordon 👍
at 20:29 5 Dec 2021

Jordon Garrick struck for Plymouth Argyle who defeated Rochdale 2-1 to reach the third round of the FA Cup.

The Swansea loanee - who operated in a striker role alongside Ryan Hardie - headed home in the 17th minute as the visitors emerged victorious at the Crown Oil Arena.

It was the 23-year-old's fourth goal of the campaign for the Pilgrims while Welshman Luke Jephcott notched a late winner with his first touch for Plymouth after Aaron Morley had equalised for Rochdale.

Garrick - who will spend the duration of the current season on loan with Plymouth - is contracted to Swansea until the summer of 2023.

After the game at Rochdale, Garrick wrote on Twitter: "Safe trip home to the fans, thank you for all your support through a hard period. Into the next round, and on to a big week ahead."

Wrexham fans react to Wilshere signing for their club
at 20:17 5 Dec 2021

@WxmRob: I wouldn’t. Injury prone and he’s never played in non league. What could go wrong? With a promotion push in mind we need players who know what this level is like and who aren’t made of biscuit

@wrexhamcarl: To be fair last time we played played his former clubs West Ham and Arsenal we beat the both of them which technically means hes going to a better club! 😉

@Of1889R: @JEDilson_10 wait what? 😂

@JEDilson_10: Surely his ego is too big for them 😂 saying that, wouldn’t shock me if it happened… 😳

@JackFreeburn: Personally can’t wait to see him booed by the Mold Road

@MikeCleverly: Hahahahahahah imagine

@Allchelseafanp1: Ryan Reynolds making moves 😅😅

@JoeEdwardsss: Can’t wait for the Luke Young x Wilshere pivot.

@joshparr00: Massive club

Would be a great signing on a play and pay deal.
Only 30 come January.
If his, groin, ankle, knee, heel, calf and collar bone, would they stand up to the physicality of the game.
Ah, forgot ego.
Can’t see tier 5 appealing to him.
Better to focus on keeping Mullin

@KevWhite66: Win win situation. Short term pay as you play contract and bonuses included. Wiltshire can get his fitness and put himself back in the shop window 😁

@craigyjones17: Nah, you’re alright ta 😂

@DanAuton2590: About his level

@DrewWickens_5: 😂 wouldn’t be the weirdest thing to happen to Wrexham tbf

@adam1862_: No way is this happening, he doesn’t wanna face Dion Kelly Evans

@dan_clubbe: What on earth 😳

@james__case: If this is true, firstly what a signing but secondly when he’s got knock and he’s in waterworld gym doing his rehab with the lads, I’ll shag him 😂✌🏽 Super Jack

@CymruOllie: This is like when Ledley signed for us. Probably won’t be any good on the pitch but it’s decent PR

@WxMMorgan: People on the Wrexham fans chat are saying they wouldn’t take Jack Wilshere 😭🤣

U23 swans beaten again
at 21:25 3 Dec 2021

Swansea City Under-23s were beaten by West Ham United Under-23s in a Premier League Cup Group F encounter including three penalties.

The Premier League 2 side scored two penalties converted by Jayden Fevrier and Mesque Dju respectively, with Aji Alese and Armstrong Oko-Flex also finding the net.

Azeem Abdulai got on the scoresheet for the Swans before Tarrelle Whittaker converted a penalty, but it wasn’t enough to avoid defeat against the Hammers.

West Ham came out of the gates strong, controlling possession in the early stages without really causing the Swansea defence any trouble.

Swansea started to grow into the game 15 minutes in, with Harry Jones flashing a dangerous cross through the six-yard box that Morgan Whittaker couldn’t take advantage of.

Dan Williams almost caught Brian Kinnear in the West Ham goal off guard, firing a long range effort over the out of position goalkeeper, but his shot went just over the bar.

But West Ham would make their possession pay, with captain Alese’s mazy run through the Swans defence allowing him to convert from close range.

Ten minutes later the Hammers had doubled their lead, Nico Hansen came to punch a corner clear, but the referee penalised the Swansea keeper and pointed to the spot. Fevrier stepped up to the spot and sent Hansen the wrong way.

The Swans almost pulled one back before the break, Morgan Whittaker’s great touch allowing him to slide the ball across to Cameron Congreve, but his low effort went just wide of the post.

West Ham’s dominance continued early in the second half, substitute Oko-Flex making it 3-0 for the visitors.

But it wouldn’t be long before the Swans pulled one back, Jones picking out Azeem Abdulai in the box who tapped home from close range.

The Swans thought they had a second, Ben Margetson heading in a superb ball in from Congreve, but the linesman flagged the defender offside.

West Ham were handed a second penalty of the afternoon after Abdulai was judged to have brought down Dju in the box. Dju stepped up and converted West Ham’s second spot kick of the afternoon.

Just two minutes later Swansea were given a penalty of their own after Tarrelle Whittaker was dragged down in the box. He then sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to pull one back for the Swans.

But it wasn’t enough for Swansea Under-23s as they were handed a second defeat in the Premier League Cup this season.

Swansea City: Nico Hansen, Harry Jones, Ben Erickson, Brandon Cooper (Azeem Abdulai 50), Ben Margetson, Tivonge Rushesha, Cameron Congreve, Dan Williams, Sam Leverett (Rio Campbell 85), Morgan Whittaker (Tarrelle Whittaker 70), Lincoln Mcfayden.

Unused subs: Jamie Searle, Jacob Jones.

West Ham United: Brian Kinnear, Will Greenidge, Emmanuel Longelo, Pierre Ekwah, Levi Laing, Aji Alese, Jayden Fevrier, Keenan Appiah Forson, Mesaque Dju (Amadau Diallo 70), Bernardo Rosa (Dan Chesters 85), Thierry Nevers (Armstrong Oko-Flex 45)

Unused subs: Krisztian Hegyi, Kamari Swyer

People & players collapsing at sporting events etc
at 08:51 3 Dec 2021

Scientists have their say on why fans and players are collapsing at matches recently with it happened twice on Wednesday night.

There are claims linking the Covid vaccine with an increase in the number of supporters and footballers developing heart problems. We have seen on-field emergencies involving Wigan’s Charlie Wyke, Sheffield United’s John Fleck and fans over the last few weeks. John Fleck’s fell to ground in an off-the-ball incident when playing for Sheffield United at Reading last week, with scientists saying that it wasn’t connected to the Covid vaccine, denouncing the anti-vaxers for suggesting a link.

The Blades player was rushed to hospital after requiring medical treatment and being carried off on a stretcher during a Championship game against Reading. The Scot’s collapse was then caught as part of conspiracy theories on social media about players responding badly to Covid vaccines. However those suggestions have been branded ‘irresponsible’ by experts who insist it is impossible to make any connection without any evidence. After Sheffield United were hounded with tweets regarding the theories, the club were quick to point out that Fleck had a separate medical issue which led to his seizure. A source close to the player said: ‘John Fleck’s issue was not vaccination related.’

Speaking after Fleck’s collapse, radio pundit and ex-England winger Trevor Sinclair hinted there could be a link to the Covid jab, while Matt Le Tissier, a firm advocate of patient choice over the vaccine, also demanded in a social media post that Fifpro, football’s world governing body, should be looking into it.

Many scientists have angrily rejected the high-profile opposition to the vaccines especially as the country gets set for a possible wave of more cases and deaths from Covid after the discovery of the Omicron variant – although, it’s claimed in Israel that three doses of the vaccine should be enough to prevent you from getting the virus.

‘It is totally irresponsible to make these unsubstantiated comments,’ said Professor Keith Neal from Nottingham University. Professor Guido Pieles, a sports cardiologist at the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health, added: ‘At present I would say this is still a coincidence. I don’t think we can say this is suddenly increasing.’ 80 year old Newcastle supporter Alan George Smith collapsed in the stands and required CPR at St James’ Park in the Magpies 3-1 defeat to Tottenham back in October.

Wigan’s Charlie Wyke collapsed in training last week, but the Latics were quick to refute suggestions that it had anything to do with Covid.

In a statement the club said: ‘We can confirm that Charlie has not received a Covid-19 vaccination and Charlie’s collapse weas not related to any Covid-19 vaccination.’

On Wednesday night, a fan at both Watford’s game with Chelsea and Southampton’s game against Leicester were taken ill.

Christian Eriksen, who we all remember collapsed playing for Denmark against Finland in the Euros, had not been vaccinated before the incident and it was revealed that Sergio Aguero, who was hospitalised after a collapse playing for Barcelona earlier this month, had an underlying heart condition, he has since had to retire.

Meanwhile, FIFA say it is not aware of a rise in cardiac arrests in football players and has received no reports of any cases being linked to Covid vaccinations.

A spokesperson told Reuters: “FIFA is not aware of a rise in episodes of cardiac arrests as indicated in your email and no cases have been flagged in relation to individuals receiving a COVID vaccine.

“Generally speaking, FIFA is in regular contact with leading research centres and experts to do research on a variety of medical topics.”

‘It may be tempting to blame Covid vaccines but pundits do have a public responsibility not to fuel vaccine hesitancy without any real evidence,’ added Professor Robert Dingwall.

Studies into heart inflammation after Covid vaccinations support that view and in two studies of more than 7 million people who had received the Pfizer vaccine, it identified the risk of developing the heart condition known as myocardities is about one in 50,000.

In contrast, from the earliest days of the pandemic it was clear that Covid itself was a cause of an abormal number of heart issues.

There is a link between the Covid-19 vaccine and heart conditions – but it is minuscule, officials say Scientists believe there is a link between two minor heart conditions and the Covid-19 vaccine – but they say the risk is minuscule.

From analysis of UK and international data, there has been a signal of an increase of cases of myocarditis and pericarditis following vaccination with both Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines.

Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle, while pericarditis is inflammation of the lining around your heart.

Symptoms include the onset of chest pain, shortness of breath or feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering, or pounding heart.

The Government urge anyone who develops these symptoms within 2 weeks of a COVID-19 vaccination should urgently seek medical assistance.

Most individuals respond well to standard treatment and recover quickly.

The link between the Covid jabs and these two conditions, according to data, is strongest in younger men, and the median onset is within three days of vaccination.

But the risk is incredibly small, according to the data.

In the US 296 million doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine had been given by 11 June with 1,226 reports of myocarditis after vaccination.

And in the UK, up to July 2021, there were 149 reports of myocarditis and 129 reports of pericarditis following use of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, 82 reports of myocarditis and 140 reports of pericarditis following use of the AstraZeneca vaccine, and 25 reports of myocarditis and 22 reports of pericarditis following use of the Moderna vaccine.

This means the overall rates after both the first and second doses of Pfizer/BioNTech are 4.3 myocarditis cases per million doses and 3.8 pericarditis cases per million doses, for the rate is 1.7 myocarditis cases per million doses and 3.0 pericarditis cases per million doses, and for Moderna the rate is 14.7 myocarditis cases per million doses and 13.0 pericarditis cases per million doses.

There is a considerably stronger link between Covid patients and heart problems however.

According to figures, approximately 18 per cent of hospitalised patients suffering myocardial injury.

Meanwhile, in a US study of 1,597 athletes with recent SARS-CoV-2 infection, 0.31 per cent were diagnosed with myocarditis using a symptom-based screening strategy and 2.3 per cent were diagnosed with clinical or subclinical myocarditis.

at 21:14 1 Dec 2021

George 'Johnny' Johnson, at his home in Bristol in 2017 (Picture: PA Images/Alamy).

Belated Happy Birthday.

The last surviving British Dambuster from the daring Second World War raid has celebrated his 100th birthday today. Veteran Squadron Leader George 'Johnny' Johnson was a bomb-aimer during the 1943 attack on German dams.
At just 22, he was responsible for dropping specially-adapted bombs in Germany's Ruhr Valley, the country's industrial heartland.

The raid targeted the valley's dams, releasing huge quantities of water into areas used by Germany for war production. Tributes have poured in to celebrate the Dambuster's birthday. Former RAF Tornado navigator John Nichol, who came to the world's attention as a prisoner during the First Gulf War was eager to mention how "humble, delightful" and "generous" Mr Johnson is. In a tweet, he said: "You could not hope to meet a more humble, delightful, generous man. "He is of the generation who thought of others before themselves. Heroes all."
