|Poverty in Swansea ?|
at 20:46 8 Mar 2018
I notice on the Joseph Rowntree Foundation site on their poverty in Wales article it shows a big picture of Swansea, looks like the seafront and marina to me and not a poverty type picture, perhaps it was just for contrast ?
|Immigration into the country|
at 18:33 8 Mar 2018
I notice this boyo has put his own spin on the three Wales model [he has categorised Swansea wrongly and has different categories], I haven't checked the figures myself but they seem in line with recent figures.
Wales is probably still getting flooded with grey haired people from the East, we need more money from central Government, the EU had objective one status because Westminster was letting Wales down, unless Westminster acts like a proper government then there is going to be bigger and bigger problems.
The issues for culture, language, effect on services in Welsh speaking areas are well known but the Welsh identity data is also dramatic in places like Carmarthen and Swansea, no wonder there is union jacks at Swansea games the local identity is being eroded at a rate of knots, the rate of change in Swansea is greater than anywhere else in Wales.

|Swans going down ?|
at 20:28 2 Mar 2018
According to SAM the super computer, the bottom but one team is going down on 38 points, Swans finishing 18th and going down also on 38 points with two teams just above the Swans and staying up on 39 points [both with better goal difference], so perhaps SAM thinks the Swans need 40 points to stay up.
A win at home to WHU tomorrow is a must but it probably doesn't alter the likelihood of the Swans going down as you would think there is a good chance that SAM would have the Swans down to win that game anyway.

|Will Swans win an away game in 2018 this season ?|
at 10:31 18 Feb 2018
Swans have played lower league opposition in the cup in the shape of Wolves, Notts Co and Sheff Wed, also Swans have played newly promoted Newcastle away but as of yet the Swans have failed to win an away game in 2018, can the Swans stay up if that trend continues ?
With away games to come at Brighton, Huddersfield, WBA and B'mouth we have to be confident of winning one.
Truth be told I'm worried about Brighton away next, Soton have one of the most out of form teams in the league up next in the form of Burnley and Huddersfield have another one in the shape of WBA, I would not want to see the Swans back in the relegation zone.
After next week everybody will have played 14 home and 14 away [apart from the Soton & WHU anomaly] and there will be 10 games to go and the league table will be a fair reflection of where we are over the season to date, I just hope we don't drop back down into the bottom three.

|Can you teach or be taught how to succesfully bet on sports ?|

Can you teach or be taught how to succesfully bet on sports ?
I think it would be very difficult to teach someone how to successfully bet [I would call it invest if you know what you are doing], you either have the skills for it or you don't, if you have the inclination and a knowledgeable teacher you might be able to pick it up, its two thirds science and one third art.
You need to know sports and you need to know value, how can you teach those two things ?, lots of people might have a good idea who might win or lose a particular sporting contest but if they know the price of everything and the value of nothing then they aint going to be successful.
|Labour fail to turn up|
at 10:00 4 Feb 2018
Disgusting that Labour failed to turn up for the live tv debate for the upcoming Alyn and Deeside by election, first question was about Cardiff and the South East of Wales getting all the money.

Wales under 20's have just gone in for their fourth try, never thought it was going to arrive, they will need to improve to compete next week by the look of it.
Good win all the same.

Watched that acclaimed Vietnam thing by some American bloke called Burns, ok-ish is my verdict, but although it was a long time ago I thought the series on our TV in the 80s was better (Canadian I think).
It was alright, not enough about the the reasons for America being scared of Communism, the Gulf incident didn't seem right from what we now know, not enough fighting and too much crying and interviewing Americans, fair enough interviewing Vietnamese as it's their country and too much about hippies and protestors and all that.
On the plus side they admitted their sins which is fair enough.

Heard Sky have just started showing Britannia, I wonder if they will have the Britons speaking a form of Welsh ?and hear they filmed lots of it over the Colbren, up Ystradfellte and down Rhossili.
I hope they mention the two previous failed invasions as well and show women leaders.
