Changing times- Taisoch wearing a poppy
at 10:30 8 Nov 2017



Albeit an Irish variant. Many Irishmen died fighting in WWI. Around 60,000 men of the Republic joined the fight against the Nazis as volunteers yet many were punished by the De Valera government. Nonetheless good to see recognition of these men who fought to help preserve our freedom.

Car Parking Advice
at 15:26 21 Sep 2017

I will be making an increasingly rare foray into South Wales on Saturday. What is the best current advice on match day parking? Will be coming down the Swansea Valley then heading East to my in-laws after the game. Don't mind paying to park-used to use the Tennis Centre. Will probably arrive around 1pm.

Thanks in advance.

Not the most popular show on here. However in last night's episode there was a "Swansea City AFC. Since 1912" scarf on the wall. Not sure whether down to the actors (several are Neath/Swansea boys) or Ruth Jones and her husband (who are the producers). Anyway another one in the eye for the "Welsh Barca"

A spectacular failure by the second most hated man on merseyside.

Who else- May? Sturgeon?

Corbyn looks solid now and arguably Farron has done enough. Plaid gain a seat but lose ground in the valleys-how safe is Leanne "Natalie' Wood?

Orgreave-good article by David Conn
at 15:59 18 May 2017

Conn more usually writes on football and Hillsborough of course. I was 16 when this happened. The 1984/5 Miners strike affected the way I look at the world even today. The article perhaps begins to explain some of the culture of senior officers in South Yorkshire Police which culminated in tragedy five years later. It is a long piece.

Decimate
at 15:08 25 Apr 2017

A word being bandied around a lot at the moment. In its 'modern' sense we take it to be the removal or destruction of a large proportion of something. Yet its Latin derivation relates to one in ten-usually the execution of every tenth person involved in rebellion or mutiny. Both are correct but I hope that a team decimated by injuries or labour being decimated at the next election are just in the modern sense.

A pointless post but needed to help my sanity in grant writing.

Seems strange not to have any players in it, though five products of our academy including a call-up for Joe Walsh.

Surprised no one posted about this. Moralee was interviewed on 5 live yesterday afternoon about the role of an agent. Spoke at some length over Ash's transfer to Everton. He said that Swansea offered to match the wage offer from Everton, but that was rejected for the challenge of a new 'bigger' club. Spoke highly of Swansea being one of the more professional clubs in transfer dealings!

Hull-'oystercard-style' membership scheme replaces season tickets

Not applicable to us due to lack of capacity but a good idea for the semi-regular. Would be good for exiles like me, but of course relies on spare capacity- say 25000 member is fine for somewhere like the KC.

Relegation odds
at 13:22 7 Mar 2016

We have lengthened considerably from last week (in the range 4/1 to 8/1) to post-arsenal (8/1-16/1) as far as 33/1 now with 25/1 being more typical. Back-to-back wins have really made a difference. I believe a win and draw from 9 games will be more than sufficient and I am a pessimist.

Reflection
at 13:52 2 Nov 2015

Having had 2 days to reflect on the Arsenal game my 10 thoughts are:
1. Ashley Williams is on a bit of a slump in form by his high standards
2. We actually played pretty well
3. Cech did not foul Gomis, but Giroud did pull Fabianski-both based on being in the 2nd row of the North Stand next to the Arsenal fans and TV highlights
4. Arsenal are very good
5. Eder needs to be given chance
6. JJS was our best player
7. Montero blows hot and and cold even within a game
8. As great as Rangel has been for us, we are a better team with Naughton
9. Our discipline needs work
10. Always disappointing to see fans leaving early and why was the seat to me empty when my daughter had to sit the other side of the stand
