I'm not one for the "been a great servant" and "he's 100% loyal Jack" and "always gives/gave 100%" and "had a great season a few years back" and "good in the dressing room" over-sentimental emotion.
Thats arf the f#cking problem with the club its helped to feed an utterly unprofessional 'jobs-for-the-boy' culture/lunacy whereupon SCFC has at times become nothing but a rest-home/charity for semi-retired players and way out of their depth parasitic hangers on.
Seeing the likes of Gower, Butler, O'Leary, Routledge etc, etc being paid thousands of Pounds a week contacted to a level/division they never or no longer belonged to is self-destructive to say the least. And to anyone who criticises me on my observation? Where did three of the aforementioned end up upon leaving SCFC? Answer i.e. from Premier League to immediate obscurity, part time semi-professionalism, a handful of post departure apps then retirement. This poisonous ethos goes throughout the club e.g. Jenkins and Dineen!
Aye, this upcoming season could be a seismic reality check for our supporters.....Also I reckon a few of our players might be about to lose their swagger if they get found out to have been nothing other than Premier League gatecrashers and impostors. The Championship will expose all that.
There doesn't seem to a stampede for certain players services, tbh I'd have thought a good few more would have left by now.
Out of curiosity (sorry if asked before by someone else) when is this mediation period likely to end?
I'm just (after first and second betrayal) rather cynical/suspicious that the untrustworthy Yanks/Jenkins and sell-ous will blatetly exploit proceedings to avoid paying any money? Is there a now or never, pay up or be damned deadline date? Filibuster-esque and conniving bunch of lowlifes the Yanks/Jenkins and sellouts truly are cos if there was any genuine intent to honour the deal to pay up it would have been concluded months before now!
I seriously wonder if the Yanks are gullible to the same extent regarding an unconnected previous story about another Yank being conned by being sold the wrong London Bridge under false pretences. I think that one is an urban myth?
The SCFC Yanks do indeed seem to be the biggest bunch of naive idiots whom have fallen for the From Jack To A KIng PR-sales pitch, bullsh#t, propaganda and lies. That is not an urban myth cos they do rather look to have been taken for a complete and utter ride. Their insane persistence/loyalty to stick with ruinous Trojan horse impostor Jenkins really questions their judgement.
Me too, I have none either! It's females and tattoos that perplexes me i.e. the way stuff goes in and out of fashion whereupon 'yesterday's' trend becomes perceived as being extremely dated e.g. 1980's shoulder pads.....big hair frizzy perms.....mini-skirts.....1970's purdy of the Avengers haircuts etc, etc, etc.
Perish the thought for many a young female twenty something if the tattooed look follows the above??????? Yeah tattoos always in fashion with males but females?
Go and witness two loads of man/woman-children on both sides of the road chanting at each other i.e. when the 'White-Pride' lot meets its co-collaborating adversary The 'Anti Nazi' lot.
All organised and stage managed so that both sides can have a good day out, ego-trip, an after demo p#ss up along with a self publicity circus the press always gets to know about it. If one side failed to turn up the other lot would be devastated. It's a "takes two to tango" scenario for all the involved parading peacocks here!
Cringe when the 'Anti-Nazi' lot play right into the 'White-Pride' lots ego's, adgenda and fantasy by labelling them Nazi's whilst over-hyping their threat to society. The potential rise of a new Third Reich these skinheads out on an all day p#ss up ain't.
These skinheads do rather love the own goal "Nazi scum" chants aimed at them because being compared to a devastating military/political machine is right up their street. Of course the winners of the charade are the (proper thing to call em) racists and the anti-racists because both go home happy.... the 'loser' (Joe Public) whom did not attend foots the police bill for a day-out at the pub and load of hot air that achieved absolutely f#ck all.
Aye, you'd think a club with the Premier League status/financial resources SCFC had at a certain time in particular? A Premier League Swansea City would have been an absolute honey-pot attraction to many of the best experienced and renowned coaches of repute and past notable achievements.
But nah, a case of go parochial......Go in-house.....Go stuck-in-the-mud......Go inept.....Go two-bob approach.......Go backwards. The club had Premier League status but had 4th division thinking. If (100% serious here) a Premier League Swansea City had ventured into the world of footballing obscurity to reemploy Paul Compton I would not have been surprised in the slightest. The surrealism e.g. roofing supplies businessman has D.o.F said it all!
Ahhhh, Sam "Bloody" Clucas was what he was called by an irate Swansea Sound commentator whom had enough of having his intelligence insulted from watching him play.....................................................Start the car!
A club that has poisoned itself from within with insane kamikaze 'jobs-for-the-boys' sabotage i.e. Dineen (commercial/consultant), Jenkins (D.o.F), O' Leary (football matters) etc, etc. None of them would get similar/comparable jobs elsewhere FACT because no club/business of high-standards/renown would want them in a million years.
Well indeed (said it before!) it would have been in the U.K's best interest to have remained in a 'sensible' EU common market.
One problem i.e. freedom of movement and the uncontrolled and unsustainable immigration figures that came with EU membership would end up with a future U.K population increase that would be catastrophic. ITV News reporting for ya. In fact there has been rather extreme concern of that late coming from the likes of Merkel and her merry EU gang on stuff that.
So indeed the U.K has been placed in a rock and a hard place, out of the frying pan into the fire, damned if you do, damned if you don't situation.
These protesters? IMO should look at the wider picture and realise its maybe counterproductive to upset a sociopathic megalomaniac like Trump? IMO its best for U.K interests regarding stuff like trade/economy to have a more agreeable Trump on your countries side?
The very w@nkers at the protests are generally the last to show up at an hospital dept closure protests etc because stuff like that is not 'Trendy-Wendy' enough to suit a virtue signalling and self-indulgent mock outrage agenda. Heard Miliband on Newsnight last night resorting to the much expected scraping the barrel tactic by branding Trump a racist.
Aye RT?... He sure does have the credibility, background, qualifications and experience in exactly the right required elite high-ranking private/corporate/big business sector to give the sellouts and Yanks sleepless nights!
Perhaps? A reason the (your quote) "trust muppets" ended up being white flag waving collaborators? Maybe they knew they were completely out of their depth and knew they would be seen as zero-threat and a complete and utter joke by Yanks, Jenkins and Co. Perhaps some trust impostors were both intimidated and knee-capped by their shortcomings from the very start.
The supporters/SCST needs Red-Adair-esque 'private-sector-specialists' to take the fight to the enemy because a bunch of 'alien to the situation/environment' ex-public sector or current public sector employees are exactly what Jenkins and Yankees would desperately want. There is a required situation(s) of poachers being extremely wary to come against gamekeepers. Or soldiers being extremely wary to come against other soldiers as opposed to an ineffectual 'all-singing-all-dancing' drag artist entertainment troupe.
That low life Dineen said on Swansea Sound new signing numbers were dependent on out-goings a case of sell/move on to buy/strengthen..... The financial ramifications of being saddled with too many earning too much PL wages?.... Likely to be both catastrophic to the clubs future financial situation and likelihood of promotion back to the PL.
HTV Wales journalist Craig Hooper mentioned (June 2002) about Morris leaving the murder scene quote: "With his clothes still covered in blood Morris fled into the night". IN THE BOOK?.......DON'T THINK SO?
Why would Mr Hooper say that and disclose something so significantly profound as that?......WHY?.....Because a witness who also appeared at the trial came forward within days of the murders (very brave of her considering Morris reputation for horrific violence) and visited a police station concerned about a bloodied Morris arriving home in the early hours that the actual murders took place. That information was initially remarkably ignored because the police were focussed on entirely the wrong person........IN THE BOOK?.....DON'T THINK SO?
The chain left the day before LIE? That alibi was next to been blown completely out of the water in the most profound of courtroom scenes during the second trial! When Morris said he was with Mandy Power?... A Clydach resident had seen both Mandy Power and Allison Lewis leaving earlier from Mandy’s Clydach address together. Mandy Power was not at her home address for a Morris visit for him to innocently leave his chain!......IN THE BOOK?.......DON'T THINK SO?
Secondly police provided post departure evidence of a phone call made by (could only have been her!) Mandy Power to her kids school from the actual Pontardawe home address of Allison Lewis. This fully backs the fact and honesty of the aforementioned Clydach residents witness statement. How could Mandy Power have been at two places at once?....No urban myths or conspiracy cr@p here folks!.......IN THE BOOK?.......DON'T THINK SO?
So how could the chain belonging to a man whom two years previously had used skull fracturing blunt force in another unrelated murder attempt, whom arrived home late with bloodied clothes during the very Clydach murders timeframe? How did his chain find itself in the midst of a murder scene? Did Scotty from Star Trek beam it there?........ DON'T THINK SO!!!!!!!!!
