|What Changes for Huddersfield?|
at 17:15 24 Feb 2018
For me Roberts and James have to figure in the match day squad. Roberts in the starting eleven. I actually think it was very unfair on Dyer to be hooked before half time and Andre certainly didn't make the desired impact when the second half began (most likely due to a preemptive Narsingh change I feel).
Today felt as much the manager's fault as the players'. His positive subs have worked so far but this was a case of being too extreme and not seeing that perhaps someone like King in midfield could have made a difference.
|We Won THE Crunch Match|
at 21:58 22 Jan 2018
I was convinced any hope I had left would be lost tonight. Even a draw would make it a 5 point gap with Arsenal and Leicester next up would make it impossible.
Yet HERE. WE. ARE.
The defence tonight was truly next level and though Mawson scored the winner once again Mike van der Hoorn deserves so much credit. What an improvement from him this season.
We could beat Arsenal. If we beat Arsenal we could be out of the relegation zone. Let's hope this convinces a couple of players to get on board, let's believe again. We've gone and beaten the only team to beat City. We can beat anyone again.

The majority can be negative if you like, I thought this was a very spirited display against Tottenham. Bad decisions went against us and we lack the quality to punish the big teams when they get complacent.
VDH and Sanches get individual praise surely. Both of them look like completely different players to when they first arrived and Narsingh too is showing continuing signs of dangerous consistency.
We need a new RB in pronto however with Angel injured. Let's give Reid from the U23s a chance against Wolves and go again for next week.

Leon looking to be in charge vs Liverpool - new man in for Watford then?

"It is with great sadness and regret that I have left my position as Head Coach of Swansea City AFC.
I would like to thank the majority owners Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien for the opportunity to lead the team for the past 12 months as well as the Supporters Trust and the many loyal fans of the Club.
When I arrived at Swansea City on the 3rd of January, the team had 12 points and were bottom of the league. Together we managed to achieve 29 points in 19 games, culminating in a 15th place finish and ensuring the Club would compete in the Premier League for a 7th consecutive year. It was by far my proudest and greatest achievement as a Coach.
However, this season, in very challenging circumstances I was unable to replicate the positive results.
Behind the scenes I worked with some great people. I enjoyed a very positive relationship with the Chairman Huw Jenkins who I know cares deeply about the Football Club.
I thank the Players for their efforts and wish them the all best for the future.
I now look forward to my next challenge in football management.
Good luck Swansea City AFC.
|Sounds like Mesa may be rested for Stoke|
at 15:08 30 Nov 2017
Just want to make sure we're not up in arms when he's benched - little bit from Paul's press conference suggesting the likes of him and Bony could be rested after not playing a lot of 90 minutes.
Or perhaps McBurnie for Mesa against Chelsea was to rest him for Stoke? Either way I think we can all agree as long as Sanches isn't playing we may have a chance.
|The Noise From The Hammers Fans|
at 21:18 24 Nov 2017
If the owners and Clement are going to accuse us of making our players under perform then let's give them something in response tomorrow. The fans in the Olympic Stadium are producing a great sound and it is giving the desired effect.
Now imagine how loud it would be if Swans fans had that big a stadium.
Come on, Swans.

Managers, Owners, Players? Who could give us the best chance of surviving relegation this year?
I'm thinking a cheeky bid for Luke Shaw wouldn't be the worst start. Santiago Arias of course would make it a rather nice back line with Olsson anyway and Bartley returning in the New Year will be like a new signing.

Clement staying another week then. Don't get me wrong this game was not just on him like usual, it's clear the squad has zero depth when it comes to trusted players.
We need Jenkins out though. That's got to be the first step here surely.
|Brighton vs West Ham|
at 20:21 20 Oct 2017
Anyone we particularly want to win this game? I'm hoping for anything but a draw.
|Most Important Match Yet?|
at 17:13 23 Sep 2017
Clement Out shouters are overreacting. For now. That's my opening analysis.
He was incredibly, incredibly stupid to start with that team and attitude at home. But you know what? He made the changes and no matter how much people on here will be wishing Mesa's contract away I'm fully in support of him being on the pitch over Clucas. Our forward play was a breath of fresh air after the break and it goes to show that Clucas may very well be a safe pair of hands at the best of times but he lacks any creativity whatsoever. You can see why he was washed up.
Mawson had a total shocker and Olsson was unimpressive yet again - if you want to blame anyone for the second goal go to these two first before Mesa. It was a mistake, yes, but he had nowhere to go and the mess should have been cleaned up by his mates.
I'm bitterly disappointed and frustrated by this result - another game we should have taken three points from gone begging. Let's not wave the Out banners yet until we've seen that Paul has learned from this match. If he comes out ultra defensive against a West Ham team who are consistently on the back foot then I think it's time to move on.
For now though I'm keeping faith. I reckon we can nick three points next week if we play it right.

It was a rotten display but jesus christ. Watching those last opportunities wasted was more frustrating than watching Sanches play for 60 minutes.

Don't know what I did to get on the same section as Franck Ribery in tweetland but there we go. Delighted with that.
