The beginning of this 2017 season is the scariest for supporters since...?
at 07:17 11 Aug 2017

The "oh ****" factor off the charts in my limited sample size, so I'm curious what my perspective would be if I had been supporting this club all my life?

Obviously 2002 was the granddaddy of them all, very soon into it at least, and I guess there'd be some nightmares from the mid/late 80's; but for those of you with that priveleged perspective, have their been many other Augusts that have had you this nervous? Worried about WTF the guys in charge are doing, whether you trust their intentions or not?

Question is directed pretty much to everyone who has opened their eyes by now to the realization that the Sigurdsson deal is at this point a cluster****. I've supported the hard stance, which the new owners kinda HAD to do, but this is quickly threatening to turn into a hand grenade that might be getting ready to blow up as we bobble it in our hands. Maybe. I can argue that the majority are idiots for tapping us for relegation, but sometimes the majority have their reasons, besides bias.

Hope Im just paranoid, and it all works out that we close this **** with Everton soon and find ways to spend about £30M or so on good, productive cover that suits the direction Clement is taking this club. I actually have a lot of positivity still about 15 of the guys who looked alright against Sampdoria. That was just a friendly, and they need a lot of help. But these guys actually have potential IMO, if a couple things fall right. Especially fitness for the first few weeks.

But positivity aside, I'll be crapping a brick every time we take the pitch for awhile. I hope for you long-timers this hasn't been a frequent occurrence if your lives.

Love you guys and girls, and hoping all our hearts survive the next 9 months. Thanks for reading my babbling rant.

Here's some positive news: Llorente finally training next week
at 15:54 10 Aug 2017

Most likely not back in the lineup until Palace (next fixture after Man U).

Have to think he'll be brought along slowly after missing the entire preseason. The arm is completely healed though, at least.

"Alexa, what is the latest Swansea City news?"

Sometimes, the lack of awareness and timing in the commercial/social media department is downright astounding.

DC United for sale

Oddly, the article doesn't mention Levien (who's still the managing general partner), just the other owner, Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir. But it's implied that this includes Levien's interest in the club, which has become a complete disaster on the pitch.

Squawka: "Why Roque Mesa is a More Exciting Signing Than You Think"
at 22:43 3 Jul 2017

Very nicely written, in depth and well thought out analysis about why the Swans really need this guy.

http://www.squawka.com/news/why-roque-mesa-to-swansea-is-a-more-exciting-signing

Plus it was written by a guy named Muhammed Butt. Heh heh.

Edit: my apologies to whaloilbeefhooked - didn't realize you posted this in the Roque Mesa thread already.

Well, was nice while it lasted: America will have to stream most Swans games now
at 22:46 27 Jun 2017

http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/soccer/nbc-sports-english-premier-league-soc

As a UVerse cable customer, starting in 2013 I could watch the 3 p.m. GMT Saturday games that weren't on NBCSN on one of the "NBC Alt" stations my cable service offered. Was great for all fans of the "little clubs" whose games were usually not on one of the main NBC stations when we weren't playing a big club.

Not anymore - now I'll have to buy this and watch them on a stream.

It isn't the $50 that bothers me, it's the fact I'll have to rely on stream quality and no longer be able to DVR the games to rewatch later.

Oh well, I knew something this good would never last.
