Swansea City receive interest for loan target Liam Cullen : Explained
Thursday, 6th Jan 2022 10:08 by Felts on Swansea
As yesterday ended the swans received two inquires for young striker Liam Cullen. This after he was circulated as ‘available’ for loan. However, we also understand a permanent move away would also be considered. That would more likely come in the summer if he had a successful loan spell elsewhere.
It’s an ideal situation for Liam as it is for Morgan Whittaker, two clubs are keen to secure his services for the rest of the season, one being Portsmouth, the other with mild interest is Newport County. With Kyle Joseph surprisingly being recalled from Cheltenham by the swans yesterday rumours are also circulating that he could go back out on loan. There are others believing his recall is to back up the squad with more players expected to leave soon.
Why Portsmouth and why now ?
The transfer window hasn’t really got going yet but it is early days, and we know Jake Silverstein has business back in the USA in around a weeks time. He will be keen to at least get things in place with a less than previously estimated transfer budget. Whittaker leaving and now possibly Cullen will help matters, not massively but every penny helps. The swans are now operating without the premier league parachute payments but do have some financial flexibility with Joe Rodon’s latest instalment from Spurs in the pipeline.
What are your thoughts on the current swans transfer situation ?

When Saturday Comes #22 by wessex_exile
It’s the 15th of January, and still the U’s are attempting to play their first home match of 2022. Weather looks good (check), players have returned from injury (check), no on-day Covid testing to get in the way (check), so barring fire famine or flood, I reckon we must have at least a 50:50 chance of a game at the JobServe this afternoon. Whether it’ll be three much-needed points or not, and if you’ll pardon the pun, I at least did see green shoots at the New Lawn on Tuesday. We still lost, and the table doesn’t lie, but definitely signs to encourage me that whilst it’s not going to be a comfortable journey, we’ll be alright by May.

Here we are then, what should have been the first home game of 2022, and I discover seconds before posting this that the game is called off because of a waterlogged pitch. Having gone to the trouble of writing this, even though we’re not playing I’m going to post it anyway – it’s not like you’ve got anything else to do this afternoon.

Finally, When Saturday Comes…and the U’s (for now at least) have a match to play. Mind you, I’m writing this on Friday afternoon, so there’s still time yet for yet another Covid/ injury postponement, I guess. I certainly hope not, as I’m planning on heading over to Crawley for this one. Mind you, now that the EFL have decreed there will be no on the day testing to eliminate the possibility of last-minute cancellations, I think I’ll defer buying a train ticket until this evening. Needless to say, a repeat of our last visit to Broadfield (The People’s Pension Stadium under the terms of a sponsorship deal) would do very nicely indeed.

When Saturday Comes…and the U’s find themselves fixtureless again, following Hartlepool’s request to postpone the game because of positive Covid tests amongst their squad. To heap further fixture congestion problems on the U’s, in short order Forest Green Rovers did likewise for our already rearranged match at the New Lawn on Tuesday night, and for the same reason. They’re not on their own either, with in all (so far) four Premier League and 19 EFL matches postponed today – all for positive Covid tests in their squads.

A little later than usual today I’m afraid – ‘tis the season to be jolly and all that, so I have just been out for the obligatory Xmas tree – bah humbug. Mind you, I was treated to the sight of literally hundreds of Santas (and the occasional elf) on a charity fun run through Calne on the way, which for want of a better expression was certainly surreal. Officially entitled Santa’s Scamper, the entry fee for participants goes to charitable causes, and to date the organisers have raised nearly £8k for charities such as Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Dorothy House, Hope for Tomorrow, Barnardos and of course their main charity every year, Hannah’s Trees – well done Santas!
