|How do you feel with the new season so close ?|
at 16:47 4 Aug 2021
Personally for me it’s one of much trepidation, a seemingly positive and intelligent management and coaching team but clouded by what I see as one of the less talented squads I’ve seen in a good few years. Very young in too many areas, either primary or back up. But I’ve got a feeling it could be the start of something very good, IF we allow that word ‘ patience’ to creep in to our vocabulary.
|Swansea City U23 1. Bath City. 3|
at 22:52 3 Aug 2021
City ran out 3-1 winners this evening in their penultimate pre-season outing against a Swansea City U23 side at the Landore Training Ground. A couple of early shots from Cody Cooke failed to trouble the Swans keeper Defreitas-Hansen before the hosts first sight of goal saw Leveritt shoot just wide of Ryan Clarke’s goal. The opening goal arrived on 22 minutes when a neat build up by City saw Eddie Jones cross for Omar Holness to turn the ball home from six yards out. Swansea levelled after 36 minutes when Dan Ball was harshly adjudged to have blocked a shot with his arm despite being just a couple of yards from the effort. Whittaker took full advantage of the referee’s generosity, sending Clarke the wrong was from the spot. City restored their lead six minutes after the interval when Mo Touray won possession in midfield and held off a defender to set up Alex Fletcher for a great first time finish. And just before the hour mark a poor clearance by the keeper was latched onto by Touray and he took full advantage, rounding Defreitas-Hansen before rolling the ball home. City continued to enjoy the better of the game after this but couldn’t add to the scoring ahead of their final friendly at Hereford United on Saturday.
|Major site announcement |

Sorry guys but it’s time we faced up to the fact the site isn’t reflecting the image we wanted to convey to the world when taking over in September 2020. To that end we have to state the following.
From 9am today, Monday August 2nd 2021 the website known as ‘Swansea Independent’ will have a new football board, The ‘ Quorn Dogs For Tea’ Football Board © This is to reflect the much wider and diverse change the club we love has made in recent hours. At no point did we mean to offend the ‘ Football Board’ nor make it feel inadequate or insignificant. However, times change and things move on, we hope the many members of this site young and old, new and bloody but well aged can accept this new direction we are now travelling in.

I do have a fond regard for him, even before the last week or so. Not massively but he is the sort of man I would want next to me in the trenches. I wouldn’t trust him totally with the plan of attack but would have absolutely no problem with him carrying out his part in it.
Cheers big man. You’ve won even more friends over the last two weeks.

Russell Martin isn’t with us, John Eustace definitely isn’t with us, Jody Morris is nowhere near Rossi’s, Derek McInnes desperately trying to get Winters attention, Chris Wilder if he is on any radar is flying with invisibility, and with a week to go to the new season it’s the quietest it’s ever been on the manager front.
Somethings happening I’m certain. Anybody know what ? 😂

Just for you, fill your boots.
But don’t disrespect a memorial thread for those who have given their lives in service.
|Alan Knill in the mix now |

Just left his post at Sheffield United, I’m not sure he would come with Wilder, more than likely as a manager. Could be wrong, but Wilder is far too expensive for the swans finances as it stands.

|Portsmouth don’t name and shame perpetrators of racist abuse |
at 08:55 29 Jul 2021
Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka – all sent racist abuse online after they missed their spot kicks – were the subject of the discriminatory comments.
From Talk Sport
Monkey emojis were used, while one wrote ‘houses are getting bombed’ and ‘death threats immediately’. Another message read: “F*** the n*****s absolute c****s.”
One wrote: “Rashford is getting lynched.”
Portsmouth and Hampshire Police launched an investigation into the messages and the League One club has now confirmed three players have been kicked out.
