U23s in the team for next season?
at 18:17 13 May 2018

I can understand why the last few managers have been reluctant to risk giving youngsters a run in the first team while we were under pressure in the Premier League, but surely we need to give them a chance next season.

We've seen that McBurinie can score goals in the Championship, even for a poor Barnsley side, and we know that Roberts is up to it, but who else - Maric, Byers, James, Garrick, Gorre? If we've got anyone on our books over the age of 20 that's not good enough for the Championship, then we need to move them on.

BBC Match Report
at 06:58 9 May 2018

"The sight of the Swans' players aimlessly lumping long balls into Southampton's penalty area was indicative not only of their dismal form this season, but of the way in which the Welsh side - once renowned for their attractive playing style - have lost their identity."

That sums it up niceley

Top Dog
at 23:06 16 Jan 2018

In the top 100 dog breeds on Wales Online, there's this at #85

Leonberger

The breed description is "Almost 3ft tall, with lion-like features."

That's sounds about right!

Ki is the replacement for Gylfi?!
at 10:36 5 Sep 2017

I agree that Ki is better when he plays further forward, but this article is tad over-enthusiastic!
Has anyone ever seen him take a set-piece?

Three words to describe each PL side.

Now, which team do you think of when you hear the words "cold", "wet" & "dirty"?

Everton sign £26m midfielder
at 21:11 15 Jun 2017

Everton are about to sign Davy Klaassen, captain of Ajax for £26m. The article says he's a midfielder, but not what type.
Would they have any cash left for Gylfi?

Reinstate the Swansea Way

A more thoughtful and considered article than you see in the newspapers. The only bit I'd disagree with was where he says nobody was complaining about our style of play when we finished 8th under Monk.

Kaplan in the news
at 11:09 18 Nov 2016

This popped up in my Facebook news feed:

'According to Kaplan, “There’s nothing more dangerous than a man in power who doesn’t know what he doesn’t know.” '

Turns out it was nothing to do with 'our' Kaplan, but it wasn't obvious from that quote...

Apparently our fixtures have been much harder than anyone else's, so really we should be 16th.

As an aside, why do the media use such odd cliched terms that nobody uses in real life?
"Gambian winger pens new three-year deal". Have you ever "penned" anything?
