SWANSTV In Nepal
at 03:56 28 Sep 2019

Group of us out in Kathmandu currently. Thinking about getting the game tonight. Is it worth it. I know there been a lot of talk about the quality.

The WiFi in our hotel seems to be ok, certainly for Facebook etc, just wondering what people who have used it would recommend.

Adebayo Akinfenwa and Alex Samuel
at 20:50 24 Aug 2019

I'm not being left out of this one.
Alex Samuel previously of the youth team started and Akinfenwa came on as a sub as Wycombe beat Southend 4 3.

Nice to get revenge for the 2015 playoff defeat, probably the worst footballing experience of my life. (and I had a season ticket when Brad Bobley was manager here).

Both players massively popular at Wycombe, Akinfenwa for obvious reasons, at 36 he still knows how to score, and Samuel is incredibly hardworking.

Can't be sure about this season, but last year Yves Ma Kalambay was reserve keeper to add to the ex Swans!!

Watching the game with learning difficulties
at 09:03 24 Jul 2019

My wife and I currently look after an adult with learning needs, ADHD, mild Autism etc. She is desperate to come with me to a few games this season, probably more to do with spending time with me than the football. I'm a bit wary of how she will cope in the stadium. So as a tester, I'm taking her with me to the Atalanta game on the Saturday. Anyone have much experience taking others with needs to matches? Any tips to make it as stess free as possible for her?

Only things i've thought of so far is getting some seats that are in a bit of space as opposed to right in the middle of a load of people. (Not that I can do that when the season comes)

Drinks containers in the stadium
at 08:38 25 Aug 2018

Just had a text from a friend heading down today who doesn't usually go. He's asked what are the rules regarding drinks etc.
I know there's no sealed containers but what about drinks bottles l? I didn't know so I thought I'd ask the knowledgeable people of planet swans.

A-Level results
at 16:58 16 Aug 2018

Anyone else gone through results today? My stepson has spent 10 months refusing to consider Uni on the prospect of bad results, only to get good results and decide this morning that he fancied it.

Got through clearing and is now doing History at the uni. Wonderful result save the year of lethargy!!

Betty Gray RIP

A Swansea legend. She ran Penlan the year I moved here for Uni. I was so impressed with the club and amount of players. When I found out more about her I realised how successful she had been. Huge loss. I'm sure she'll be missed by many.

Employment Law question
at 08:27 21 Feb 2018

"Asking for a friend...."

Looking for insight if anyone knows a bit.

Person A was suspended by their employer and put through disciplinary procedures. During this they resigned when it became clear the reports etc were not balanced. The hearing went ahead and found that they would have been dismissed.

As the person is registered with a regulatory body they then have to investigate the person.

In their findings they firstly close the case but also raise concern about the way the investigation was conducted and that there were systemic failings that were not Person A's responsibility.

Anybody have an idea if there's any point trying to get the disciplinary wiped off the persons record pr taking legal action?

TIA

Anyone interested can pop along or PM me for more details

Couch to 5k
at 19:18 19 Sep 2017

So my cycling has come to an end for the winter as the dark mornings set in. Weight loss is going well so wanted to keep the activity going. Decided to try some running. Downloaded a C25k app with Michael Johnson as the voice/coach. Can probably do a bit more, but on our first run today, but this morning managed to get me my wife and our boy out at 6am!
Enjooyed doing it together and if they don't come out can do a longer run.

Anybody done a C25k?

Anybody near Manchester, help needed
at 16:36 18 Sep 2017

Our Church is heading out to Nepal soon to spend a week with a Children's home in Kathmandu. In the process of working out things to take we have had contact from the Manchester United foundation who have said they will give us some kit.

It's a long way to go from Swansea to OT so we're seeing if there's an alternative to driving up there.

If there is anyone on here who might be able to help us out in picking the stuff up and sending it down here (costs covered obviously) it would be great to hear from someone.

Thanks

Anyone know much about vinyl?
at 13:56 7 Feb 2017

Mother-in-law was a big music fan, especially Il Divo, Katherine Jenkins, Aled Jones and Cliff Richard.

She died last year and we have a flight case with about 40 Cliff 12", a couple of Aled but mainly Cliff.

Can't work out whether to bin the lot or try and find a buyer. The case alone is wortha couple of quid. Also got a small box of '45s of Cliff singles.

Advice welcome (apart from burn the lot....!!)

I've never listened to this show. Just driven from Morriston to Sketty and had the pleasure of listening to Ryan.

Advocating the New Saints manager to replace FG, I was highly amused by the bewildered presenters figuring out what to say!!
