Quote: "That is because, for decades, the Labour Party has taken people for granted in Wales – just as it has in other communities across Britain."
Maybe this is the time that the chickens finally came home to roost? Wales ignored by Cardiff centric and Cardiff biased Welsh Labour. The end result of Welsh Labour economic partition thats only priority has been Cardiff and SE Wales. Looks like keep em poor to keep em voting Labour strategy has outlived its purpose?
Neil Ashton's opinion that is hardly complimentary.
Huw’s Up Swanee (Title)
Huw Jenkins knew the score when he flogged 68 per cent of the shares in Swansea City to American investors in July. “You greedy bastard, get out of our club” was the chant ringing around the Liberty when they went 3-0 down to Manchester United last Sunday.
Most people would cut and run. But Jenkins took on an advisory role with the new owners to keep up appearances. Little wonder he looks so uncomfortable, fidgeting in his seat in the directors’ box.
The Swans look bored of life in the Premier League, running out of ideas after five years in the top flight. The players have lost their motivation. Sadly for the fading Swans the same can be said for Jenkins.
Interesting bit from the Leighton James personal column in today's SWEP quote:
"I’m a little concerned by the lack of football knowledge involved in transfer decisions. Francesco Guidolin has already admitted he takes a back seat when it comes to recruitment, which I find staggering. That means the people making big calls in terms of bringing in fresh blood have never kicked a ball or been in the dressing room. That can’t be the best way of doing things".
Sort of backs up the previous claims on here of appalling and disgraceful amateuristic goings on behind the scenes that threatens SCFC both on the field of play and financially? Backs up what contributors other than myself were saying? I apologise for my scepticism at their previous past claims!
Apparently he is on his way out come new year and according to The People article with 'exclusive' tag? "This is set to rock Swansea" and the club are quote "are bracing themselves for another setback". The headline BTW is "Going. Going, Gom"! Delete if a ferdy! Oh excuse the re-edit I forgot to add it said Huw Jenkins will listen to 'right' offers for both Shelvey and Gomis!
