Due to illness and work commitments today was the first game I had been able to attend since Boxing Day. I couldn't believe how many empty seats there were around me. The majority of the row in front which had some "die hard" fans ....who often have me lip if I dared critisice a player or the regime and often quite insulting......lots of empty seats also across on the South.....today's attendance given as 18500 something...yes a low Millwallturnout but there were not 18500 or so bodies in the stadium today....many current season ticket holders already called it a day and I expect not renewing next season. The £70m Hole of this season.....being the gap between income and expenditure will be worse next year as gate receipts albeit a fraction of our income shrink. I know many on here say they will not renew season tickets etc so as not to put money in the Yanks pockets...unfortuneately this will only further harm the club. I wouldn't put it past this bunch of charlatans to wind the club up to extract every penny of their so called investment.there are som many levels and entities in the clubs structure I am quite sure these canny Yank hedge fund managers could find a way to recover their £68m +
Great result and another goal for our useless centre forward.....Fer showed what he is capable of..let s hope Joe's injury is not too serious just imagine what we could do if we had a manager who knew what he was doing... (That's tongue in cheek by the way!)
Whilst Potter (quite rightly) is receiving plaudits for what he is doing with this young side we should also look to thank the coaches of the U23s who have had so much to do with the development of our youngsters. ( I wont take the credit for this T2c/The Res mentioned this in another but feel it warrants its own thread. Interestingly all 3 of Saturday goals scored by products of the U23s too SO thank you guys long may it continue
Well Huw now we know what the next level is! But never mind all that money in the bank will keep you happy.....shame you may never ever be able to walk the streets of Swansea again?
Perosnally I do not see what the sale of the club has done ....apart from benefitting a few indivduals in their personal pocket.....the good of the club...Relegation looming ( Im resigned to it cant see Huddersfield not picking up a point but more to the point cannot see us beating Stoke!) with a financial crisis heading our way as the Americans and their gang cash in their chips............"By the fans for the fans " remember that one? At least form the off we knew what Petty was about......but for our so called own? As John Lennon once sang "how do you sleep?"
Given our lack of Jordan plus his brother and Andy King for next Saturday how might we one up?
I wonder is it time for a Leon recall in a diamond so we line up 5-1-3-1
Nortfeldt Naughton Van deer Hoon Fernandez Mawson Olsen Leon plays at the base of a dimond in front of the central 3 In front of Leon a 3 of Ki at the tip of the diamond Clucas on the left and Dyer on the right with Tammy up front,Ki,Nath and Clucas rotate to support Tammy with Naunghts and Olsen operating as wing backs.
