What was the score with that? I didn’t see the flag up until after the goal had been given and the Lino and Attwell had a chat.

National Library of Wales Newspapers
at 22:08 22 Nov 2018

I have been using this free to use portal to carry out searches of Welsh Newspapers as part of some research I have been doing. It covers the period from 1804 up to 1919. A tremendous resource to use which brings to light all of our local historical stories with events large and small covered.

I came across this report today from 1914 in relation to Swansea Association Football club, interesting to see how much the record gate receipts were.

BBC sounds app
at 17:12 29 Oct 2018

Recently launched replacement for iplayer radio app. Seems good so far for all your BBC podcasts radio stations and radio catch up.

It also suggests programmes you might like to listen to on channels you don't normally use, also very good for getting digital radio through Bluetooth on car radio if you don't have dab.

Are you still working class if you eat "poncy" food.
at 20:54 2 Jun 2018

I have had a cracking day out and about with my mates. The Mrs has gone out with her friends and so I made myself some food. I sat down to some olives, sun dried tomatoes, ciabatta, pasta with a nice sauce and a glass or two of red.

I just thought 20 years ago I would have gone on the razz with my mates had a guts ful of beer and a curry to finish off is this what happens when you get old or have I become all metro.

Swans Ticketing App
at 09:27 12 Jan 2018

Just launched with lower fees looks like potentially a good product and a benefit for many. Apparently the first football club to do this.

Buy why didn't they announce this last week rather than go down the ridiculous " govt new rules have forced our hand" announcement over increased fees.


Instead of a good new story it now looks like they have back tracked after fans complaints.

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.
