Re: Promotion Rivals

I would be disappointed to finish behind Watford. They didn't look up to much at all down here, even after taking the lead. Tomorrow is huge. Not a make or break game, but in terms of laying down the gauntlet to everyone else. We've improved the squad during the window and are bang in form. Losing i...

Re: An honest teacher

He's not wrong though. Proms are a horrible import.

Ashley Williams retires

One of the best £400k's we ever spent. Got eight years of sterling service out of him and sold at just the right time.

We definitely needed those older heads on the pitch. I know Ayew's wages hurt but he and Bennett certainly know how to manage a game.
And Hourihane. Nearly 400 games plus experience of getting promoted out of this division.

Re: Cardiff apply for a loan

We are back to being run the same way we were the last time we got promoted out of this division. As close to within our means as possible, with a squad made up of smart signings, experienced pros, some home grown products and some loanees. There are a lot of parallels. It's just a shame we can't be...

Re: Cardiff apply for a loan

The Committee tried for a young/modern big name and he turned us down saying "I want bigger things and a bigger club to manage."
You can almost sense the tears as he typed that.

Re: Byers

Possible that we won't see him in a Swans shirt again. He's not going to be of much use to us if we go up (not much use to us if we stay down TBH) so if he does well there I can see a deal being struck.

Re: Central Midfield

The little dinked pass through to Roberts for the goal he had disallowed is the kind of pass only Dhanda in our squad can make. Nobody else has that kind of vision. His biggest problem is he's lightweight and can be bullied out of games so can be 50/50 in terms of what kind of game he's going to have.

Re: Central Midfield

It's harsh on Smith, but based on today Hourihane is an automatic choice. It'll be Hourihane, Grimes and Fulton to begin with. Fulton has been excellent all season, and Grimes has reacted well to his entirely justified dropping early in the season. Cooper needs to be fair though. If performances in ...

First signing next summer if we go up. He's gagging to get back down here if/when we can afford to buy him.

Re: Pitch

Seems to be a lot of clubs up and down the country struggling to maintain a decent playing surface. Ours hasn't had a lot of time to bed in so it's probably about as good as it's going to get unless there's a proper close season for it to settle.

We've been screwed out of so many penalties that were I'm not losing much sleep over getting one that wasn't.
