    Barcelona: Why Quique Setien was appointed and why Xavi said no For the second time ever in mid-season, Barca have just fired their manager when things were ostensibly humming along ... I would add that deeply rooted in the club's philosophy is the understanding and expectation that, although...

    Blackburn Rovers

    Here we are .... once more unto the breach dear friends. A tale of two cities ... on the one hand we desperately want our club to succeed and therefore win ... on the other hand a loss would be another nail into the coffin of yet another woefully inept manager. With a record of 3-5-6 out...

    United and Dan

    I’ve never been a United fan. But, since Dan James joined them I have been watching them almost every game to follow Dan and now I find I’m becoming quite a fan. Dan is the pepper to the salt of Rashford, Martial and Lingard. Nothing more exciting than to see Dan pour on the jets and take off...

    Season Tickets

    I have just renewed. My minor contribution to the January transfer window. You will find that, as per usual, the website is challenged. I had to try a number of different ways to get the renew ticket page to recognize my login and account but finally succeeded. Frankly, I am not sure what...

    Why us ... Sat, Tues, Fri ... seems too much too soon. We are the walking cripples this afternoon. Routs and Dyer still carrying niggles from the Millwall match. VdH is also trying to tough it out from Tuesday but uncertain. Not an easy game this, and given our home form .... what form ...

    Caption Competition

    Seriously people, after today’s excruciatingly bad dollop of dross that harkens back to our old Division 4 days playing the likes of Bradford PA (whom we happen to have hammered 5-0 on a snow covered Vetch in early 1970) ... what we need is to assert our collective penchant and flair for acerbic...

    Wales v Hungary

    A big match this. We have all of our guns available - Bale, Ramsey, Allen, James - and others. Ramsey looked particularly sharp when he came on against Azerbaijan; clearly a class above others on the field. A selection headache for Giggs in midfield. Ramsey has to start, but what about...

    Byers ... I give in

    Cooper is standing on a different planet ... Steve Cooper | George Byers embracing midfield challenge | Swansea What is he seeing that we are not? Byers is not at the same level as last season.

    Gomes Injury and Son Sanction

    My initial take on the tackle from seeing the incident from various angles during the match coverage was that although Son may have impeded Gomes, Son did not actually make contact with the ankle that suffered the injury. And, that unlike the Neil Taylor incident v Sunderland (?) a few years...

    Ayew Vice Captain

    Cooper confirms Andre Ayew as Swansea City vice-captain | Swansea I guess he's not going anywhere in January. Now, what about Borja. Will he be happy on the bench or will Cooper be smart and rotate them between the mid-week and weekend matches .... providing that he is smart enough to...
