Trip down memory lane for the oldsters

Liverpool 2 Swansea City 2 from 1981 - extended highlights. This popped up on Youtube when I was searching for something else -it seems like a recent post. Dai had one of his best games - apart from giving away that pen.

Rising star Erling Haaland at Dortmund has an unlikely hero, not unknown to us - Michu.

Is it just me, or is there so much material on the opening post of the match thread that it is almost impossible to get to the later posts? I am scrolling down, down, down, and still not getting to the end.

An EPL team of ex-Swans?
at 20:47 27 Nov 2020

Watching the Palace vs Newcastle game tonight made me think about the number of ex-Swans still playing in the EPL. By my reckoning we could put together a team of: Fabianski, Davies, Roden, Fernandez, Taylor, Cork, Sigurdsson, Shelvey, James, McBurnie, Abrahams. Subs: Brewster, Ayew (J), Hernandez, Gallagher, Bartley.

I know there are one or two square pegs in round holes, and that I'm stretching things with a few loanees, but it makes one think that if we had played our cards differently we might still be in the top league. Did I forget anybody?

DVLA Tip
at 13:51 23 Nov 2020

A few months ago I changed my car. My old one was sold to a private buyer and I made sure to sell just before the end of the month, thinking that I could then reclaim the following month's road tax from DVLA. I sent off the completed transfer form to DVLA the same day thinking that would do the trick. However, I didn't get any response to that or to my follow-up letter, and so last week went on their online chat line to ask an advisor why I hadn't received a refund. His answer was that refunds are not based on the date when you sell the car, but on the date when DVLA processes the transfer of ownership. In other words the only way to get the following month's tax back if you sell near the end of the month is to register the change of ownership online straight away using the DVLA website. Of course, there is no mention of that on the vehicle registration document. In this case I paid for the following month on my new car, the new owner of my old car paid to tax the car again, and DVLA kept the month's tax already paid (3 months tax for two cars on the road for one month). It is a nice little money maker if they are allowed to get away with it,

Welsh Cup fixture at Sketty Lane, 2.30pm
at 09:51 25 Jan 2020

With the Swans playing away today why not get behind our sponsors and support Swansea University FC as they take on Prestatyn Town FC in the cup? This game brings together the leaders from the JD Cymru South and North leagues. Admission to Sketty Lane is £5 for adults, £3 concessions and £1 students. Kick off is 2.30 pm.

Another teenage prodigy?
at 17:37 11 Jan 2020

15 year-old midfielder Ben Chrisene came on to make his league debut as a late substitute in Exeter City's 2-0 win over Cambridge United today. He broke Ethan Ampedu's record as Exeter's youngest first-team player when he came on in the EFL Cup in August, Apparently Ben is being watched by some big clubs. We missed our chance with Ethan, and I don't suppose we have as much to offer now. Should we make a cheeky swap offer of Grimes for Chrisene?

Repairing a slow puncture on a run-flat tyre
at 08:06 12 Jun 2019

Think my wife's car may have a slow puncture, Which companies in Swansea will consider repairing a run-flat tyre? The pressure warning light came on a couple of days ago and I found the pressure was about 30 PSI compared with 35 PSI on the other side. Now the warning has appeared again. The car is only 7 months old and the tyre has never been deflated,so that there is no possibility of sidewall damage from having been run flat. However, I understand that many of the national chains won't consider a repair. Does anybody know who will?

Dobbie's record
at 21:16 11 May 2019

Stephen Dobbie's hat trick against Montrose today took his season's total to 43 goals, breaking Queen of the South's all time record. Okay, the standard might not be the best, but that is a great achievement for a 36 year old. Good luck to a man who served us well!

Today the copyright directive, tomorrow this.

One thing that concerns me about the "rules-based international order" that the EU promotes is the way the space for political decision making in nation states diminishes as more and more things become matters of law.. In other words we lose our ability to ask our politicians to change things because they are no longer matters that national Parliaments can change. This is what the German philosopher-sociologist Jurgen Habermas called juridification - the colonisation of the lifeworld by law - and I really don't like it. In one of last year's best books Yoram Hazony writes that there are only nation states and empires, and I don't fancy being in an empire.

Stephen Dobbie hit his 33rd goal of the season today, against SPL opposition as well. Too old now to come back, but could probably still do a job in the Championship. Good luck to him - served us well in his time.

They were under the cosh for most of the time but got a goal on the break. Third clean sheet in a row and Rangel had a very good game. I thought he'd gone a season too far last year, but dropping down a league seems to have bought him more time.

Swans TV International Streams
at 12:50 21 Aug 2018

Did anybody have any joy in getting a refund for the Preston game, when the stream was non-existent for most of the first half and lagging at other times? I used the contact facility to leave a message asking for an extra game free as compensation, but didn't receive the courtesy of a reply. I subscribed for a month at £14.99 but because of the 'dark markets' restriction it looks as though I'll be lucky to get one more game. Not really very good value, and very poor customer service.

Youtube has vintage film of some of our old cup games. I couldn't find the famous quarter final win at Anfield, but here is that semi at Villa Park vs Preston that we should have won.



There are some good games from the 1952 and 1955 cup runs as well - complete with 28,000 at the Vetch.

The quality is not the best, but we'd probably struggle to better either of these teams. Pablo is still as good as anything we have in midfield. In hindsight one wonders why we paid over £15m for Clucas, when we could have re-signed Pablo for peanuts,

2nd West Brom 1247km
