Swansea City : Saturday morning match day on the Indy
Saturday, 2nd Mar 2024 08:00 by @Cornish67David & Keith Haynes

Today is the day for Swans head coach, Luke Williams to put a stop to the poor home record at the Swansea.Com Stadium.He hasn’t won a home game since he started his appointment bar an FA Cup win that turned in to an embarrassment at Bournemouth. Swansea City host Blackburn Rovers later today at 3pm with good news all round for some new faces in the squad.

Jamal Lowe, Bashir Humphreys, Harrison Ashby and Azeem Abdulai are all fit and ready to go - hopefully for us to see the Swans get their first win at home since the defeat of West Brom on New Years Day. That’s sixty two days ago when Alan Sheehan was in charge of the Swans. Since then there have been a few marginal defeats in amongst the worst run of fixtures any team could face in the Championship. With Leicester, Leeds, Ipswich and Southampton out of the way things could get more positive. However games against Watford away, Cardiff at home and Bristol City away are hardly odds on wins. The Cardiff game needs Williams to take stock of his opinion on our football club and understand what he is actually in charge of. Recent comments are slightly unnerving especially regards what he now describes as a frivolous comment about Carl Rushworth staying at Swansea next season. He has clearly had a telling off about releasing information prematurely despite what he said being fairly accurate. It just isn’t a playground to have a laugh at the expense of Swansea City supporters. This is a club with a fanbase that represents huge swaths of the country and doesn’t need to be played around with.

We expect the bizarre non inclusion of Mykola to continue to today which will also anger many Swans fans, we discussed this last night.

⚽️ Luke on Rushworth just a joke then?

And of course here -

⚽️ Todays opponents and the missing link

It was the first real issue of his own making that Luke has presented himself with since taking over at the Swans. And despite the back slapping autograph hunters hanging around the stadium coupled with the nodding dogs the head of communications has surrounded himself with, this was one big bollock to drop.

It isn’t suffice for us to let this type of stupidity pass us by without comment, either on here or in person. The Swans need stability and this recent issue raised by the head coach and cemented in Swansea history was simply foolish and amateurish. We don’t need it. This club has been dragged through too many homemade issues to allow this head coach to do the same. It’s unacceptable.

We had a Rovers review earlier this week. That’s below.

⚽️ The Captain speaks

The stupidity of this situation is so annoying. Professional people ? However, we totally respect what the head coach is trying to achieve and love his enthusiasm for the role. We just don’t want any sideshow nonsense.

The only thing Luke Williams can do is get wins, the talking and foolishness has to stop. We want to see his vision in action on the pitch. And at least today give us some hope. We don’t doubt the head coach and his ability to implement his tactics in non league, but as he is learning this isn’t the same as Notts County. The buck stops with him from here on in. There’s been a lot of angst this week since Luke Williams made his Carl Rushworth comments, not least that many beleive they aren’t true - but won’t put it to print. Well, we have and we stand by it.

The match day report follows later and of course today we will have the match day teams build up.

Now deliver please Swansea.
