|The future direction of the club|
at 10:42 3 Dec 2017
Whilst I agree with a lot of the sentiments on here I am somewhat perplexed about what happens next. It goes without saying that the squad is not only poor in quality but also in depth. If we do decide to part company with our present manager what next?
Can we expect anyone of any quality whether players or manager to come in with the squad we have?
Do we put ourselves into debt to potentially save our Premier League status?
Whilst I disagree with the behaviour of the board over the sale of the club it goes without saying that the infrastructure of the club and impression of professionalism has moved forward massively from the days of the squad training and changing in the Glamorgan gym at Llandarcy and the pre Liberty days.
So when fans ask for a change of manager and board what do we want to replace the current incumbents?
How many fans boycotts, banners and other such campaigns have actually made an impact? The likes of other former PL clubs seem to show a very sharp downward spiral.
I am not including the old board/trust takeover on the basis that they had to pay off the owner who made a profit from the transaction.
|Peelings and pig swill|
at 10:41 4 Nov 2017
Not being from Swansea and being brought up in a former mining community which was semi rural, was the practice of leaving vegetable peelings out after Sunday dinner for the local small holder/ farmer to collect for pig swill?
I think it stopped in the mid seventies because of some Heath and safety of EU legislation. I can remember our local farmer bring a horse and cart with people throwing their vegetable peelings in the back.
Proper recycling in those days.

I love this programme new series started on Sky Atlantic a few weeks back, well worth a watch.

Together with my Mrs spent the afternoon picking blackberries about 200m from the house. We spent a couple of hours in the sunshine picking fruit, just eat a fantastic blackberry tart with a bit of custard. We have got a couple of kilos of fruit for nothing in the freezer.
Do young people do such stuff now? Do they just buy from their local shop or just buy ready meals?
As a young man picked Wimberries, Blackberries growing wild and strawberries from my dads allotments and sold them around my Valley village for decent money in those days.
Is that below us now?

Have we started the expansion by taking them apart to add a few seats?
From the east there did not appear to be a roof there and looked like some plyboard had been put around the perimeter. What's that all about then? The players will be soaked sitting there.

According to Sky bet we are now favourite to sign him. Looked decent for Hull in the occasions I saw him.

Does anyone have some experience of these or tips?
My laptop has died after many years of use and I was about to just buy a replacement, but I am wondering if a chrome book would be a better option. I generally only use my laptop for emails, web surfing,banking, shoppping and the occasional letter/ spreadsheet. I rarely download stuff and only stream off secure sites such as BBC Sky etc.
I have a smartphone which I do use a lot and also have an iPad which i enjoy using but is probably coming towards the end of its life. Any suggestions or recommendations?
|Afan Valley adventure resort|
at 18:35 12 Apr 2017
Media releases today that a new Centre Parc style resort will open in the Afan Valley in the next few years. Can you see this happening? Would this attract people to S West Wales?
Afan Valley is well known to MTB riders but most come, ride and leave with just a few from the south east of England staying for a few days, who bring all their goods and drink so don't spend anything locally.
This is at least the second type of resort " launched" in the last 20 years. There is a small number of cabins near Tonmawr but that's about it. Do we have the ability to attract big businesses when we have fantastic scenery good road and rail links with the M4 and A465 all around us?

|Fulham away Swans win 0-3|
at 19:15 31 Dec 2016
I remember Martin Jol looking around his team as we passed the ball around them, it was cold and starting to snow at Fulham. He looked for leaders amongst his team and found none. I walked away feeling we were playing in a dream world. We joked how Jol had asked the ref to give them the ball back.
I don't think they were relegated that season but it was there for all to see their demise was coming, just as it has been here for a few years.
I kind of guess we all know how Jol felt now, there has been a certain amount of arrogance growing around this club and its supporters, well I guess we are all going to need to get used to eating humble pie for a bit. We are going down and I don't care who comes in as players or manager(s) we have been mortally injured by poor choices in players and managers since 2012/13.
The Championship could be the least of our worries, Sheffield Utd, Bolton, Coventry and others have all been well away from the PL for some time.
As for the board old and new there is only one way to earn back respect and that is to support the club through long term investment and hopefully get us back to being a competitive club again.

Until end of season. Will be announced tomorrow, he can't start for a while as he is on a cruise with his Mrs.

Remind me of us in the Championship. Very nice on the eye, their manager Wagner is a protege of Klopp apparently. German American parentage played for the US.......just saying

My friend sits in the West and always listens to radio commentary whilst watching the game ( I don't know why) but he said the radio commentator said there appears to be a disturbance in front of or around the Directors box.
When he looked over there were a lot of security type people standing there and a bit of shouting going on.
Did anyone else see or hear anything?
|Parcel Force Swansea|
at 00:01 19 Feb 2016
Has anyone had any issues with Royal Mail or Parcel Force in Swansea?
To cut a very long story short my daughter is getting married in a few weeks and as she lives in New Zealand and her partner is from there has decided to get married out there. My mother is too frail to attend so my daughter came over in the autumn to get her wedding dress here and take family members who couldn't come to the wedding to get the dress. My daughter then went back to NZ and we were to post the dress out there for the wedding in March.
The dress was finally ready a few weeks back so my Mrs used Royal Mail spent £200 on postage and insurance to make sure it was tracked every step of the way. A few days after posting she checks the tracking and it does not appear to be working.
A few enquiries reveal that it has not been scanned since leaving Port Talbot Post Office and the dress has gone ( lost stolen) after over a week of battling with Parcel Force we have been paid out and my daughter has now bought a dress in NZ but it's not "the dress".
Obviously upsetting and I just wondered if this sort of thing is a regular occurrence? Has anyone on here had a similar experience or hear of one?
Customs require you to put on value on outside so everyone can see it's an expensive item.

What a great day of games. I was thoroughly entertained by the top sides.
