Watching the Swans in Rhodes?
at 13:06 26 Sep 2017

Going to be over there when we play West Ham on Saturday, I'm sure I'll be able to find somewhere to watch the match but just wondering if anybody on here can recommend a bar?

Staying in Ixia, not far from Rhodes Town...

Swans historians? Looking for a bit of info...
at 19:39 13 Sep 2017

Strange one this folks, but we had an old fella in the pub today, lovely old guy and he was telling us about his grandad, he used to own the White Rose in Mumbles, and apparently he was one of founders of Swansea Town. A Capt. Tom Martin?

Just trying to find out a bit more for the old guy...? I've tried a quick google search but come up blank...

From hero to zero...
at 17:28 7 Dec 2016

...In the history of the Swans, has anyone fallen from grace as quickly as Huw Jenkins?

Honest question, but what a fall. After all the good work, and let's be honest, our rise to the Premier League was unbelievable, and it's all gone to pieces in the space of a year... unreal!

I can't think of anyone...

Craig Bellamy...
at 21:07 29 Jun 2016

So I'm in work on Monday night when in walks Craig Bellamy, within 5 minutes he has been escorted out the front door for his own good to be honest. A group of English contractors who have frequented the establishment most evenings for the past few months are stood having a pint in their usual spot when the esteemed Mr. Bellamy asks if they are staring at him! (They were actually watching the TV and the build up to the England v Iceland match).

After he seemed to simmer down, his lady friend who was with him asked the English guys what they do for a living, they quite politely replied that they were shop fitters who had just finished up for the day and she said that it must be hard work. At this point he decided that they were all having a pop at footballers for being lazy, and moments later he was persuaded to leave.

The English lads in the pub showed great restraint in not flattening him to be honest... Read a few times about his good charity work and how he's a reformed character these days, even on here once or twice. But I can honestly say that on Monday he lived down to all my expectations. What a prize prick!

Round up all of the religious leaders...
at 11:54 22 Mar 2016

...all of them from around the world!

Stick them in a room together, stick a couple of mediators in there, and don't let them out until they find a common ground. Get a united message from them all, even if it's along the lines of "we agree to disagree! But let's all stop killing each other eh?"

Our governments aren't going to stop these terrorist acts, the "war on terror?" Isn't working, if it's religion that's causing all this mayhem in the world, and the leaders genuinely condemn all these acts, then it's down to those leaders to unite and sort this mess out.

Okay, the guy isn't shy of a bit of controversy, but his complaint about erratic kick off times and fixtures being moved around is valid IMO.

I'm sure we have all grumbled about a fixture or two being moved over the past few years.

6 nations tickets on sale, Scotland is sold out, but still tickets left for France and Italy.

https://www.eticketing.co.uk/millenniumstadium/details/event.aspx?itemref=2035

As with any rugby threads on here if you have no interest, then cool. Just putting it out there for those who are interested. The Italy game especially could be a championship clincher.

Phoning the tax office...
at 17:25 23 Jul 2015

Been sat here for over 30 minutes listening to some lovely pre-recorded music...bored to tears, so I thought I would just post this...

Anyone else had to contact the tax office lately? Had to answer some questions repeatedly to some sort of voice recognition thing which took forever, and now this! It's just to resolve an emergency tax code! Surely these days I could have just done this online?

Dog advice please...
at 12:07 19 Jul 2015

Not sure how she managed it but my young Staffie has managed to lose one of her claws. Out for a walk the other day and she suddenly started limping, had a good look and the "nail?" Was at a funny angle, last night it just came off.

She isn't whimpering or anything, she is moving around fine albeit with a very slight limp, but she does seem a bit down in the dumps.

Advice on the net seems to be keep it clean and just keep an eye on her? Or is a trip to the vets in order? Quick look on Google seems to show that this is quite a common thing?

Money, what is it?
at 22:30 5 Jul 2015

I don't mean the £20 in the back pocket type of money, but the money that the banks, governments, IMF etc. talk about... I'm lost? There isn't enough produce / money in the world to cover the amounts that they talk about on the news surely?

For example, they talk about "Trillions" of pounds??? Surely I could buy just about everything (not anything!) if I had a spare couple of Trillion pounds down the back of the sofa....

In conclusion, is money f**ked?

The parade is expected to last around eight minutes before heading inside to get out of the sun."
