Swansea City Special : The must win game that both sides must win !
Friday, 2nd Feb 2024 11:58 by Liam Walters & Keith Haynes
The Swans assembled this morning at Fairwood with three new faces to meet and greet from the latest transfer window. Ronald, Saigo Jr and Przemysław Płacheta all come in. Ronald Pereira Martins on a permanent transfer, Placheta on a short term contract and Saigo Jr on loan until the end of the season.
The news wasn’t greeted with huge positivity. A certain section of the Swans support do have it in for Sporting Director, Paul Watson. He seems to be getting more stick for his transfer business at the Swans. A banner at Coventry City away and someone who thought it a good idea to go to the Premier League darts and hold up a ‘Watson Out’ sign.
The Swans face Plymouth Argyle tomorrow at the Swansea.Com in a Championship fixture both sides are desperate to win. They too have sought out loan players during the January window. Ashley Phillips, Darko Gyabi, Alfie Devine and Lino Sousa all head to Home Park. Adam Forshaw was also signed. Morgan Whittaker will captain Plymouth tomorrow, allegedly the interest from Italy in a potential transfer to Lazio was dismissed by the player. Good news for Argyle because when this lad throws a strop he becomes a completely different animal. Not really sure how good his Italian is either ! The non transfer of Whittaker meant the Swans wouldn’t get their sell on clause activated either. We are pretty sure he will be off in the summer.
Plymouth LIVE report : Finn Azaz, Luke Cundle, Kaine Kesler-Hayden and Lewis Warrington were all recalled from loan spells, while Macaulay Gillesphey and Matt Butcher completed permanent moves to Charlton Athletic and Wycombe Wanderers respectively. Tyreik Wright also joined Bradford City on loan.
A busy month for Plymouth.
Swansea City have won five out of the last six meetings between the clubs in all competitions. The other game was drawn. An in form Swansea beat the Pilgrims at Home Park back in October, a pretty decent game to watch. 3-1 to the Swans was the final score. The Swans have so many injuries now it is going to require an assessment later, post head coach, Luke Williams pre match report. However, we warn you the news isn’t good.
A memorable link between both clubs is Sean McCarthy, (above) he played nearly a hundred games for the Swans and over one hundred and fifty times for the Pilgrims. Sean was a big lad, loved a goal and had a very good career. Well over five hundred professional games and getting on for one hundred and eighty goals.
We will have much more on this game later and in the morning on the Indy.
