Mulder..
at 15:53 24 Nov 2018

..made that mistake because he feels he needed to prove to potter he can pass like nordfelt, creating doubt in his own ability.

Poor man management from potter, resulting in a keeper who starts to do unnatural things with tragic results.

I actually think we can still get something from this game.

C'mon the Swans !

Sloppy goals and can't score.
at 17:05 20 Oct 2018

Seems to be us at the moment. We are playing some truly wonderful football but I can't help but think we are being hindered by constant changes game after game.

Nordfeld made some good saves, shot stoppi g is his thing, I'd have been playing Mulder myself.
As the playing McKay and not Dan James that was hard to take.

We are frustrating at the moment, still very much a work In progress, but conceding sloppy goals when you struggle.to score is going to ebb away st our fragile confidence to play our football, it's a hard puzzle to solve.
First thing, we should never have started the season with only 1 fit striker, 2nd thing, potter needs to try and not fiddle so much with the team and let certain combinations develop .

We all know it's a long season and it's great to keep players fresh but they also get rusty if they arn't match sharp.

Just my th9ughts on today, frustrating as fook to watch but some lovely football which masks the difficiancies of the team.

Tutu..coming to Swansea for press conference.
at 13:39 10 May 2018

"I have so many things to tell I'm going to leave for the press conference I'm going to do in Swansea very soon in my name and in the name of ML .. We owe it to the people so they know the truth !! "

"To make clear 2013 I had a very strong fight with Huw Jenkins almost reached hands but then I started to analyze Huw and I think he's a good person..For a long time I talk to him frequently "

So what the fook is actually going on here then ? seems there has been dialogue between Huw and Tutu but whats the end game here ?

Thoughts ?

Will be earning 73k a week in League 1 because Sunderland didn't insert any relegation clause into his contract .

I hope to fook Huw didn't sign the likes of Wilf and Ayew without a clause, it's not beyond the realms of possibility we moved away from this practice in desperation to sign players.

Sunderlands owner cleared the £140 m debt just to get rid of the club, overall an admirable thing to do, couldn't see our lot being so gracious myself.

Bony .
at 17:21 3 Feb 2018

Love Wilf, all for him coming home, but what the fook happened to him ? he came on today looking like he just completed 90 mins ! 30 secs in he's hobbling round and i'm thinking that if he calls to come off then that's it for me RE Wilf .

How can he be so far short of fitness? he looks about 50 yr old in the way he moves, and we were almost playing with 10 the moment he came on, i believe he has something to offer and i know he always needs a run of games but fook me he just looks like a disaster signing at the moment . Amazing performance from the team today, really proud of the effort but bringing Bony on made a tough job harder for me .

Thoughts on Wilf ?

Is it true he earns 20 k a week at the Swans?

It says that Barnsley are prepared to meet his wage demands of 20 k a week ! i hope that's Huw loading the wage to make money otherwise think i'd be wanting a bit more for 20 k a week !

Leroy Fer.
at 14:33 31 Jan 2018

A real enigma, was absolutely first class the few games and has all the skills to excel at this level, he slid a few cracking balls through in the first half and seems to be able to almost anything with a football and also put his body on the line to win the ball in the tackle but fook me he is so inconsistant too !

Do you think Carlos has the experience to harness the enigma that is Fer ? he must be an absolute nightmare for coaches who probably see him on the training field and then see him on the pitch .

Hopefully and the early signs are there, that Carlos can improve players like Fer,Ayew,Clucas , Ki and VDH . It's like seeing 4 new players out there but it's also frustrating knowing that these boys have ability but lack consistancy.

We all know if they could match consistancy to talent they probably wouldn't be at the Swans but the margin is so fine, can Carlos coach the extra percentage needed to survive ?

Ayew signing imminent ?
at 18:03 28 Jan 2018

Amazing how Carlos seems to have a similar taste in players to our DOF . Could just be rumour of course but there are rumblings that the Ayew deal is close to completion .

If he signed where does Carlos play him ? I'd also like to know how he fits Bony,Ayew,Tammy and Sanches into the team or who gets left out .

IMO if we signed Ayew it wouldn't be so bad as long as it's a loan deal.

Clucas and Carol
at 16:58 13 Jan 2018

2 of the worst footballers to play for us in a long while. Tom is absolutely weak in the mind and body and Clucas is just a very poor lower league footballer that while may try is just so far short of Prem level it's an utter joke we paid £17m for him .

The game ? well, we are at least fighting but are probably down after not winning today, i thought Jordan Ayew was one of our best and has been last few games, he has at least made up for his woeful showing against Liverpool.

VDH, special mention, stuck to his task, struggled but just about did enough, produced a great cross for the goal and has probably shown in 2 games that he's one of the best crossers at the club! and in a nut shell that proves why we are going down, poor quality all over the field and no chance of replacing dross like Clucas and Carol who will be bleeding us dry in L1 in a few years time .

Captain Bony..
at 17:10 9 Dec 2017

..for the rest of the season IMO . Has been the leader of men we've been missing, was immense again today , get a couple of signings of quality around him and we could have a great chance of getting out of trouble .

Wilf and the rest of the team played for the shirt and the manager today, it should have been a 2-0 win but for Tammy being selfish, top players don't fook about like that when they have a player alongside on an open goal, dissapointing for me, the right options will be critical this seaosn not personal glory .

Tammy however played his part when coming on so hope he learns from it .
Bony looks well into this battle, he is fighting for the fans and the club so well done him, he leads others will follow.

This has nothing to do with..
at 17:20 21 Oct 2017

..the manager or the players, lets just be honest and admit the current shambles is firmly placed at the door of Huw Jenkins,the sellouts the scouting dept. the director of football(yes,jenkins again) and our overall planning and recruitment in every dept.

We can't blame the manager, he can only pi$$ with the c0ck that he's got, take out the set piece of Gylfi and it shows hoe a long term cull of quality and talent has royally fooked the club and fans .

We are now finally like Wigan,Sunderland,Villa and those other identkit premier league teams that just pin everything on trying to survive while trying everything to cut a corner and save a pound.

Why the fook Jenkins and Co. get to freely walk the streets of Swansea while we watch the club struggle to put out a premier league quality team defies logic.

Don't blame the players, it's far too easy, it's not their fault they are what they are, Carol cost £5m and looks over priced at that figure but it isn't his fault, ditto clement.

Lets for once turn our attention to absolutley horrific management of our club by the likes of Jenkins and Co. not whatever hen pecked coach he puts in place to take the fall for him .
The sad thing is that it was almost impossible to fook this up from what was built by Martinez,Sousa,Rodgers and Laudrup but Jenkins managed to completely do that with plenty to spare as he sold us all out.

The players never gave up today so for me there is no point in slagging them for trying , thats all we ask at the end of the day .

Clement cost us today.
at 16:54 23 Sep 2017

Apart from yet again woeful defending that has become the liability Alfie mawson clement can take all the blame for that shambles .

Starting at home so negative is a disgrace against the likes of Watford and Newcastle, he needs to sort himself out sharpish .

The likes of mesa wouldn't play that pass if they actually had some fookin games to adapt ! Yet another fail of Clement. He's a smart coach but he needs to start getting things right not getting it wrong most weeks.

Worst 45 mins I've seen since erm...newcastle ! Changes it when it's too late. The line up was wro g most fans knew it and so did Watford.

Shambles.

Long hard season ahead then.

A win would have given us real progress and hope a ,defeat and the manner of it means it's going to be very tough for flement and the team.

That was a l9ad of bollocks served up today against a team that is at best equal to the swans, in actual fact they looked like they've been premier league for 7 yrs and we look like a disjointed championship club freshly promoted.

Early days but I'm not liking what I've seen in the last 4 games truth be told

Clement dropped a Bollk.
at 14:28 19 Aug 2017

Major m.istake by him i thought, Mesa and Bartly were growing into the game and while we were only ever going to hope for a bit of luck to equalize the team was solid and functional . Very dissapointing to see the heads drop after the 2nd went in too.

A quick run down on the players.

. Fab, did well
Naughton - i thought he had a superb game myself, played his position very well and made the right passes.
FF- Still a poor mans Chico, some nice defending still a liability with the ball at his feet.
Bartley- Not a fan but did well today, looks to have improved after being on loan.
Mawson- cost us the first goal by ball watching, still on a learning curve but will improve.
Carrol - crap, with and without the ball, we need to strengthen this area IMO.Far too patchy
Fer- Hmm, sometimes looks a real player but mostly just ineffective and 1 step behind.
Mesa- Thankfully looks like he can do a job, when he knows who likes it to feet and who likes it to space will be a real asset for us, missed him when he got subbed.
Ayew- worked his socks off and probably one of our best players today, lacks the confidence to shoot and needs to be more selfish instead of trying to play Tammy in all the time.
Tammy- He is what he is, 19 yr old learning the game, not good enough at this level yet, Llorente would have bagged 2 of his chances today, thats the difference in this league, hopefully he learns before his confidence ebbs away.

Overall i think we are heading the right direction and with decent signings we will do ok, dissapointede that clement changed it, he should have kept it more nip and tuck IMO. Hopefully he learns, his formation almost got him a result, clear to see he has talent as a coach. hard luck to him but he got it wrong today.

Highest paid Swans player is...
at 14:57 10 Feb 2017

..Siggy on a reported £70 k a week alongside Llorente who is reported to be on the same, a staggering amount of money but in the lower reaches of the prem league top earners.

Interesting to note that stokes top paid player is NOT Joe Allen but Shaqiri, who is on £65 k a week alongside Arnoutivic .

Didn't somebody say on here that joe went to stoke because they offered him 70-80k a week ? i wonder what we were offering him?

Anyway, other notable earners .

Troy Deeney Watford 100 k a week
Negredo Boro 100 k a week
Benteke Palace 120 k a week
Defoe Sunderland 70 k a week


Thoughts? are our boys value for money in comparison to others? seems out top earners arnt too far away from clubs like Everton,west ham and Southampton.

..that clement wasn't backed a bit better in the transfer window.
That we paid £15m for borja who after seeing him today is now the biggest waste if money ever; didn't even run his nuts off for the cause.shameful.
That naughton, who I've backed always, seems to be turning into a bigger fanny that fernandez, and that's saying something !
That we paid £8m quid for a centre half out muscled by silva , the softest argie centre half there's ever been !
cork is a back up only, his brain doesn't function quick enough at this level I'm sorry to say. Decent player and trier but not quite got it.


Positives .

Gutted for the boys and the manager, real kick in the teeth a point for that 3 nd half was well deserved.
Clement has enough about him to make us better, we look a world apart from the Bradley era .
Leroy fer was immense today .

Gutted as fook after that. Our survival bid is firmly in our hands though, the players and fans can take some heart from that today. Well done swans and clement .
