I have a a very good recollection of of the old sages on here and on the fantasy forum SCFC2 explaining to the masses that according to "Hedge fund" methodology the US owners will depart as soon as the parachute ends as there would be no reason for them to stay. I was on SCFC 2 then to be honest before getting banned for asking awkward questions.
They also said the US people would never invest any new cash. While the cash investment thing is a little vague with the convertible loan notes, cash is in the bunker at Fairwood and the club might not have to pay it back with interest.
As far as i am aware at this point there appears to be no plan to divest and leave their south Wales investment.
Does anyone else remember these predictions or own up to them? Perhaps it will still happen. Anything is possible at Swansea city.
The current captain in Matt Grimes. He has however not committed to the 2022-2023 season so a change is clearly needed. He may be away in any case.
Routledge does not play enough otherwise would have been the obvious choice. Jamal Lowe, Fulton are ever presents. Roberts is ever present but also apparently stalling on a contract. He would be my choice if he was signed up.
Bennett has the experience but is not an ever present. Bidwell ticks a lot of boxes. Cabango is young Welsh and popular but too inexperienced perhaps. Perhaps its Bidders?
Surely the best thing for Liam this season is a solid 35-40 games with a lot of goals. This will establish him as a regular Championship player.
I do not see how 15 bit part plays helps him very much at Swansea where competition will be tough with Lowe, Joseph and Piroe and possibly another fighting for places.
I believe he should be playing somewhere every week with Newport of Bristol Rovers on loan with the aim of 40 games under his belt and hopefully a good goal tally. This will test his metal. He would then return to the club good to go and fully rounded with bags of confidence.
Fourth a lovely goal by Arriola. 4-1 DC. Bundle of energy.
DC Owners obviously Arriola
Pozuelo Tronoto . Bradley jnr Toronto
If we assume the level is not quite championship standard it seem to be a good level for the likes of Swansea players lacking games time. Garrick Whittaker Latibeaudire Ollie Cooper to get a loan once Covid is done.
I keep a little eye on up and coming Welsh prospects and this young fellow was highly touted as one of the better ones. Two posts yesterday. One saying the club will give the fellow a chance another saying he was on his way.
I read somewhere he declined to go to loan. Perhaps its a case of doing what Bielsa tells you or else?. These kids must listen to their employers not their agents.
Born in Cinderford John Macafee was a very colourful character. US /UK. An expert on Cyber security. Here he is. Sometimes its better to have nothing. Outspoken bon viveur and on the run in his later years. Either that or paranoid.
With the court case now pending what plans do the SCST have for their money. should they be sucessful? To date they have shown no interest in the world of investments with Â£880,000 or so in current account with negligible interest. The Â£14m or so from a divorce this is a game changer. Member should be conscious of big changes that will be needed in tht event.
A court win would in my opinion force a change in the way they go about their business. The do nothing option is not sustainable.
