|Very surprised at Potters selection ? Don't be.|
at 08:14 6 Jan 2019
Not too may changes,and the perfect response will now be continuity.
The experimental selection v Wigan was poor, but sticking with the same players near enough in the FA Cup ? That seemed odd, but then of course my belief is that Potter would have been under pressure to win the game for financial reasons. Surprise, surprise some USA company pops up as a sponsor too, the club needs cash and Potter picks a side to win the game.
Don't get me wrong anything positive regards finance and winning games is what we want to see at Swansea, but my real point is that it seemed odd ...
Potter is an astute guy, intelligent and very aware so it could be he saw the brief clearly or does anyone think the yanks have had a quiet word, don't go under strength, we want the financial gain out of the FA Cup hence Potters selection yesterday ?
Either way, although the result and performance went well under the radar 7 goals away from home in two matches is more than decennt from a team a lot of people say don't score goals. It must be a while since two consecutive away games yielded 7 goals. Dean Smith looked in shock.

That's the way to despatch a side when your 4-0 up.

Just how I see it really.
There's more to the education of our younger players than picking them to play games at certain times. Remember Potter employs developmental learning and gives players experiences and emotions in tasks away from football that reflect the same emotions on the pitch so they can deal with them properly or at least use personal experience to do so.
Im not saying he is always right but I like his methodology and thought process. Those who have used psychometer ( and effective ) emotional learning and not just cognitive remembering will know what I mean, but it really requires a complete on board mentality and buy in from everyone in the squad. The only real problem with this is when someone like Jordan Ayew appears all full of ego and bollox and influences younger players negatively. Maybe this answers the question, where were Nathan and Wayne for so long and where the hell is Narsingh. May be not but it shouldn't be dismissed out of hand.
Potter has managed his first 5 months incredibly well, behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera, including trusting his younger players and staff as well. He hasn't pulled up trees but when you see what he is doing and when it happens it's a pleasure to watch and again I say I'm enjoying this season immensely. To expect us to be in the top six and looking like promotion candidates is a bit too much at this time and then blaming potter for every single strategy he uses ( when it goes wrong ) is not at all helpful. If it helps we have a better goal difference than all the teams below us as well. And Stoke are one of them. They like Ipswich are going to be in shit street very soon.
I think a little bit more of a relaxed view of matters and maybe some tolerance that not every day is sunny and perfect and believe it or not when your rebuilding like Potter is support doesn't just come along on a matchday, it's an all round process that lasts a little bit longer than 90 minutes.
We all support Swansea City and have different views, as for Jenkins and co standing up for them and trying to reinforce them as good guys won't ever work for me, if it's your bag then great, but don't confuse thinking they are lying bastards with not supporting the team. That displays an immature outlook and goes a long way to letting the reader know how you process confrontational matters. ( Like not very well )
So, I enjoyed today, I head off back to proper beer and dangling off high buildings in cold conditions until April, by which time I am certain quite a few on here won't have slit their own throats because we can only achieve a top half finish after all the mismanagement and fruaudulant lies the club has had to endure.
Potter and co are solid professional people who care and are trying to make club on the pitch great again. They are working tirelessly and for me in any occupation that's bloody good enough.
|Quiet tonight ...|
at 20:10 1 Jan 2019
Mind you there's hardly anything to moan about.
Makes me wonder sometimes who actually supports our team on here.
Good day out, Potter could have hung these out to dry by eight today but chose not to, yeah, that's my complaint, I blame the manager 😂

I fcking liked her Terry !
In fact I recall as a kid her acting with Terry Scott in a sitcom, I have to admit I would have knocked her clout a fresh one in her prime.
Didn't like football.
|How good is Mulder compared to Rog ?|
at 16:48 27 Dec 2018
One of the lads said on Saturday at this level Roger wouldn't have been as good. I disagreed, however we have always had very decent keepers, is Mulder in there ?
|Those that must go players and fans ?|
at 19:41 26 Dec 2018
Apart from the greedy detritus of failure already gone as loans.
Dyer, Bony, Fer at the very least.
I wouldn't be surprised if one of Mulder or Nordvelt went as well. Nordvelt I wouldn't be bothered about. Montero may get an offer as would Routledge.
I would expect very little in if 5 or 6 went.
Then if we survive the season some real momentum towards a brighter future on the pitch for 2019/20.
Or indeed a push for promotion if we get relegated again in May.
Our club 2019 -
Ladies and gents face reality, we can't rely on the Boston tea party to do little more than spend half of our general income. They in my opinion are asset stripping us under many guises, and still are, we either accept it and trust in Potter or walk away like all clubs fans do in the main when success dies. To hope of a revolution like 2001 is clearly impossible unless our decline sees the club in league 2 or worse. Yes that would be upsetting, but for me not as much as for those who have only known the premier League.
As I've said before this club is in my blood and has been for 40 years,I'm going nowhere. Here's hoping other Swansea city supporters think likewise. If not maybe it's best you also go in January 👍
|At times today our football was outstanding|
at 17:42 26 Dec 2018
Some of the passing and interplay was superb. If Potter is given some grace ( and support from the stinking smell in the board room ) he will most certainly turn us in to a very good football team. Surely everyone can see this ?
|Anyway I don't care ...|
at 17:25 23 Dec 2018
I've followed this club for 40 years, and this season is still better than the last two, Ive experienced the very worst and the very best and for those moaning about things like Potter etc ... Divert your attentions elsewhere and don't forget the slime and scum that still remain in the corridors of the liberty.
I love this club and can see when a manager and his team are completely focussed and professional as we all can with players on the pitch. This was never going to be an easy season, it's going as well as can be expected and even better at times. Boxing Day Villa, make some fcking noise and scream us to victory.
|Never going to happen but ...|
at 08:59 21 Dec 2018
Can you imagine if all players no matter who had to spend one season at the end of their career ' giving something back' Already professional footballers will be cringing at the thought. At the start of their final contract they have to nominate a club they want to play for or work at least a league below to give something back. If they are injured then maybe a year in the academy training the youth players and passing on live experience.
If that was the norm in football I think some fans would be more appeased that the extortionate salaries paid reflect something coming back the other way. At the moment most of the greedy fckrs just take.

Seems to be full of what is biggest or where more people gather or indeed who can buy the most seats ! ...
And not fill them.
Cardiff City in a new stadium, 2017/18 season, a promotion to the premier League season average attendance was 20k. I'll await the excuses.
More to follow on their first season in the championship comparisons, away support and indeed this season's away support compared of course to Swansea. Have a guess who comes out on top, more later. As obviously it's more important than football 😂
