Swansea City Transfer Latest Plus - Lazy Clubs Using The Swans Hard Work - Barnsley Preview
Saturday, 16th Jan 2021 11:33 by Andy Bean
It has been a thing for a number of years.The lazy, ineffective clubs with little nouse, that’s coaches and managers with no accountability for their own lack of intelligence when it comes to player resourcing. They circle the Liberty once again feeding off the hard work of the swans. Swans fan Andy Bean with a swans fan point of view. Plus Transfer latest and Barnsley pre match warm up.
You can make yourself look as intelligent as you like, but under the surface ?
Cardiff City look likely to have joined the group of clubs who have little or no branding or alleged DNA who blood suck the life out of the more forward thinking and intelligent clubs. Swansea City have had it in the past on many occasions with numerous transfers, Sheffield United another leach in the system are repenting at their leisure regards the ridiculous overpriced signing of Rhian Brewster after a successful spell at Swansea, they also found Olly McBurnnie a difficult signing - clearly not understanding that Swansea City as a club are not and never will be Sheffield United. The hypocritical big team in Wales, the club that won an FA Cup that nobody who is alive today witnessed are becoming the lazy, ineffective champions of this league. Max Watters was an hilarious watch, as Neil Harris apparently ‘swooped’ to steal him from under Swansea City’s noses. Well, let’s see how that pans out for Cardiff, they’ve destroyed Harry Wilson in the last four months, his football now eroded to a player with no confidence and who looks completely lost.
David Sullivan, hilarious
West Ham’s owner David Sullivan used to latch on to many swans signings from Michu to Andre Ayew, another hilarious individual who used to come out with comments like ‘ yeah, we knew about Michu’ or ‘ ‘We knew about Ayew’ too stupid to understand that he actually was undermining himself by making these comments about successful Swansea signings.
And now we get this
Hourihane, Aston Villa
Hourihane, a Villa favourite the fans want to keep
The Republic of Ireland international has fallen down the pecking order under Villa manager Dean Smith this season. Hourihane has played just five times in all competitions in 2020/21, with new signings such as Ross Barkley and Bertrand Traore keeping him out of the side. Swansea have already spoken to Villa, Dean Smith clearly wants to let him go, the fans are not happy, if the swans sign this player in the coming days it will be a real coup.
Football insider says
Wilder needs proven Premier League quality if his team are to pull off a remarkable comeback and avoid the drop this season. Which isn’t easy to come by on a temporary basis. It’s why Lingard is such an attractive option. Yet while not as experienced in the division, Hourihane has proven himself in the top flight of English football. In 2019/20, the Irishman scored three goals and provided five assists in 27 league games as Villa avoided relegation on the final day. Hourihane could easily slot into the Blades’ midfield three and would also provide some attacking impetus.
Of course it is to be expected, Wilder hardly comes across as an individual with a lot of grey matter when it comes to the way he communicates and talks in the media. Another club happy to leach away at others expense. If I were this type of person in the workplace I would be extremely embarrassed.
Swansea Independent Owner/ Editor, Keith Haynes
On another point the swans now have three away games in the league on the bounce. Barnsley today, then Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday, then Rotherham on Saturday January 30th. The next home game is on Saturday 6th February at the Liberty against Norwich City. It’s a tough three weeks ahead.
More transfer talk
An ideal addition or the swans
Now, reportedly facing newfound interest from a Swansea City side jostling for a Premier League return for the first time since 2017-18, perhaps the timing makes sense. Any departure would create a sizable hole for Seattle, though, especially with how effective he’s become alongside the likes of Raul Ruidiaz and Nicolas Lodeiro.
Pre Match Chat
Valerien Ismael: “I think we have improved since this game in Swansea. It was a strange one because Swansea played a different kind of football that day, which was a surprise. “It will be a tough game against a club who are going for the Premier League. But we now know more about them and we will be prepared, more ready on this occasion, however they decide to play.
“We’ll adapt if necessary.”
