    Truly the best of times. What a fantastic team we had at that point.
    Michu was just sensational. Every time he had a chance you fancied him to score.
    Even the owners still seemed amazing !!! I know the manager was.

    Nope. Not until there's a change of ownership and even then it's highly unlikely.

    Natural finisher. He was excellent with his one on one’s. Did he miss any? If his did you could count on one hand. So sad that he could never get back to his top game after injury.

    If it's going to be another 30 years, it's likely I'll be in my box by then <laugh>

    Even after all the shenanigans of the squad decimation this season by the Yankee hedge fund owners, who are afraid to show their faces in Swansea, we still clung to the faint hope of bouncing back up through the play-offs this season up until now.
    The stark realisation after this latest resounding defeat by a mediocre team below us in the table is that our weak squad are even more mediocre and nothing more than also rans, and that we are destined for a lower half of the table finish after three straight away defeats.
    With the threat from the Yanks of another clear out of any saleable players this summer, one wonders if we will be able to compete at all next season.
    They have systematically destroyed our club since the take over, aided by a megalomaniac chairman and an inept board.
    We desperately need a buyer to get rid of these vermin money grabbers before we end up in League 2 or bankruptcy.

    " our club ". Actually, it's not. It still belongs to the owners.

    Short memory syndrome up and running again. Without the " megalomaniac chairman " et al, the Club may have already slipped into " League 2 or bankruptcy ".

    " Vermin ". That's a very emotive word, and you don't have to travel across the Atlantic to find any.

    Having spent some seven seasons at the top table, courtesy of the " megalomaniac chairman ", the Club is now finding it's true level, viz, " mediocre … also rans ". As a consequence, losing their best players is now likely to become the norm, and obtaining top quality replacements will prove difficult. This is the inevitable result of relegation from the absurd P.L. Get used to it, the slide may well continue.

    The sooner you, and many others, accept that, the less hysterical you will become, and life will become much easier. <laugh>

    You never come on here to comment on anything football related to any of the Swans' matches or results. Yet people who appear to care over all the football related affairs of the team & club are constantly trolled by your predictable repeated boring ramblings. You really are a sad piece of work.
    That post by Keith, who I obviously I don't know as much as you, he actually posts a very small amount on this board. So when he does want to explain how he is feeling about the match Saturday & the general condition of the club. You've got nothing better to do, than carry out your usual 'infestation' of this board, over his personal utterings, on how he see's it.

    Talking about vermin...

    They are repairing the club ffs....The club cannot afford to go up for 2 or 3 seasons yet until the yanks stabilize and pay off our huge debt caused by pearlman and jenkins.....The club was paying wages well beyond our means which was a recipe for disaster and it was proven true.....The club is in a hell of a mess where we are paying half of players wages who are on loan at other clubs and the Americans are bound by stupid contracts made by two idiots who were running the club....I am very disappointed just like everyone but it has happened and i'm glad and impressed now that the yanks have took control and the way they are dealing with things and the way they brought Potter onboard who understands the situation fully before he signed and he is doing a fantastic job......He has already secured championship football and i hope he can do this for at least 2 or 3 seasons allowing the Americans time to sort out this mess made by trusted people who they allowed to run the club......

    Then they obviously didn’t do their homework and trusted the wrong people. Another catastrophic error on their part <doh>

    Agree it was a costly error but how were they to know ? Lets hope with all their Business experience they can put the club back on track and they have made a good start but a long way to go yet.....

    Dai - why blame Pearlman? His brief was Commercial - Huw was the football ‘guru’!

    Know your club Taff.......Pearlman was the main man doing deals....I found that out when he first came to the club.....A big error again by the Americans that is a hard lesson to swallow as they appointed him....Massive mistakes all around by everyone at the end of the day.....
