Connor Roberts abuse of Asoro.
at 12:07 24 Jul 2019

.
I heard CR going mad and him giving asoro abuse for a stray pass, think f*ck off was included in it.

then there was another time he went mad again at 4min 45 secs on the highlights. it seems way over the top for me, all the players have made errors here and there during the friendly games. What good is it going to do shouting abuse at asoro. It came across like CR believes asoro is the youngster, so he can give him grief.

what is CR like with him on the training ground or the dressing room. asoro has loads of raw talent, often jealousy can cause the way CR is treating him. It won't help asoros confidence.

I'd enjoy watching asoro play, I don't want to think that connor roberts is out to ruin his selection chances. I hope cooper has a word about it.

Possible replacement if Mcburnie was sold
at 15:41 15 Jul 2019

Sam Cosgrove

22 years old, scored 17 goals and 2 assists in the Scottish Premier for Aberdeen last season.

If it's youngsters we are looking for he fits the bill.

May be able to buy him cheap enough to play with Mcburnie. Could be money made on him, because if he did well in the championship for a year, prices are much higher than up in Scotland.

To loan or to buy
at 18:33 18 Jun 2019


With loaning a player, while they could be of great help, and improve our chances of a promotion push. At the end of the season, all the work put in improving and developing them is for another club .

I would prefer to buy players who have potential and to develop them for us, so all the work put in is for us. This is also the better business, as the initial investment can increase quite a lot depending on how much they improve.

I think even if we get to the premiership again, it's better to find youngsters with potential that we can develop rather than the route jenkins went on of buying older experienced top players who were too expensive.

Trevor Birch expertise is to sell clubs on.
at 13:34 27 May 2019

It looks likely that he's been brought here to sort our finances, then to oversee the sale of our club?

October 2003 he was appointed Chief Executive of Leeds United, overseeing the takeover by a local consortium.

June 2004 he become Chief Executive of Everton, with the task of overhauling the Merseyside club's finances. He resigned after a disagreement over strategy with the board and major shareholders.

In June 2007 he was appointed the Chief Executive of Derby County, only 4 months later he was released believed to have been due to disagreements with the manager Billy Davies.

He was appointed Chief exec at Sheffield United in Jan 2010, they were relegated to League One 2011. he left soon after.

Late 2011, he undertook the role of Administrator at financially troubled Portsmouth, he led the club to a sale to the Pompey Supporters' Trust.

Birch had another role as Administrator of Heart of Midlothian in 2013, he lead the sale of the club, to a takeover from Bidco (1874) Limited on 12 May 2014.

Late 2015 he undertook an advisory role at Bolton Wanderers which finished in March 2016 with the sale of the club.

In March 2017 he joined Portsmouth and led negotiations with Mike Eisner and his investment vehicle Tornante regarding the takeover of the club.

18 March 2019 he became chairman of Swansea City

All the ifs
at 12:13 7 Feb 2019

If the club had managed to keep hold of Sigurdsson and Llorente, we may still be in the Prem.

The yanks do not learn from their mistakes. I can see them continuing to offload, weaken the team (proven with Dan James), and more relegation to come - all for short term gains.

Will the trust get duped again by the Yanks
at 19:59 5 Feb 2019

I can see the yanks trying to win them over, being their best buddies, and giving the full smoke and mirrors to them.

They probably view the trust as lambs to the slaughter.

Question about the legality of the club's sale
at 14:52 3 Feb 2019

It's been stated that those who sold the majority of the club to the Americans, had signed heads of terms with them several weeks before the trust were informed.

And that the trust met up with Levien for the very first time on April 16, but later on that that same day, the club's sale was announced by the BBC. Also that Jenkins and the Yanks are on record stating that the trust had been kept out of loop.

My question is: How long after the trust were informed of the impending sale, was it sold - or how long after the trust were shown heads of terms did they get to meet with Levien.

I feel sorry for Mr Potter
at 19:59 2 Feb 2019

He was at a good club Östersund with good owners. He's come here, and has been stitched up, zero transfers in when they were clearly needed, then to stick the boot in even further, good players lost.

With the Americans now making all the decisions, it won't be long before Potter will want out.

When is it time for legal action by the trust.
at 19:22 2 Feb 2019

There must be laws being broken, keeping a 21% shareholder of a company out of any decision making, and withholding all financial information from them.

The Americans are becoming more and more blatant. They came here to make money, and they are clearly asset stripping - even the most trusting Swans fan can see it now.

The Positives and the Negatives so far....
at 14:45 23 Apr 2018

There are plenty of positives that we still have and that could see us survive this season. The main one being that playing at home, and when Carlos has belief that we can win, we can play excellent are very capable of getting results.

We have 2 games left against teams in the relegation zone, both are 6 pointers, and these games should see Carlos more up for it and setting up with belief. If Carlos is up for it and on form, this is reflected in the players. By letting them get at the other team more and attack, keep possession and prevent the other team from getting many chances, this is when we are at our best.

The positives from the Man City game yesterday were that the lack of effort could be seen as: the players were saving themselves for the next more winnable games to come. No one got injured, and today we actually haven't got that much of a roasting from the media at all. It's mostly praising Man City. We were expected to lose, so no big thing has been made of it.

Although the players have had a roasting on social media from their own supporters, I personally do not blame them for how they played yesterday. It was Carlos who had them to play these doomed tactics, and if anything, their lack of motivation showed that they would have preferred to play a different way, to be given a chance of competing. When Carlos sets them up differently, lets them get at teams more, they will probably be a lot happier and motivated for it.

And our run in is easier than the other clubs around us so this is another positive.

The negatives are: the way we were set up to play yesterday, all the negative training involved with these types of tactics, this could have a bad effect on the players confidence. If the players are starting to not agree/not want to be playing these negative tactics, it could start to lower their respect for Carlos. If Carlos is going into certain games with low belief and low confidence, that's the last thing the players want, they need high belief and high confidence at this time.

Another negative could be that Carlos may decide to give Chelsea too much respect at the Liberty and they will be given an easy win. I just hope we don't play this negative way of playing again.
