    I don't want us to get rid of Fletcher. When he's been fit, he's been very good for us. He's an intelligent forward who holds the ball up well, unsettles defenders with his physicality, and has a decent strike rate for a striker of his type of a goal every 243 minutes. He was vital to our good run-in last season, and if it weren't for him going off injured against Huddersfield, we could well be in the Premier League right now. The problem is that he's been injured for so much of his time here that we've barely had him fully fit and firing on all cylinders for more than a handful of matches at a time. This, coupled with his reportedly high wages, means that we're questioning his value to our team. Having seen the improvement that Luhukay has been able to coax out of Nuhiu and João, I certainly wouldn't want to move Fletcher on just as he's finally returning to fitness, though.

    I'm going to state the obvious and say its always ultra-competitive, but it's also very difficult to predict. Sometimes the teams you expect to do well don't, sometimes a team emerges from nowhere and form from the previous season counts for nothing IMO. Wolves and Cardiff, two very different teams and two very different approaches to getting promoted. To me, this is the beauty of the Championship and it should serve as a cause of hope to us all that promotion is still very much a possibility if we can get the fundamentals right.

    He may have got the decision right but it was six months too late. That said, I think we will go up next season.

    Spot on. The past couple of summers ever since Wembley have been shambolic and the home kits just added to all the negativity and tension.

    I'd see Fletcher and Nuhiu as our 'target man' options. Nobody else in our squad really offers similar aerial threat, hold-up play and physical presence. If Nuhiu turns down his contract offer and signs elsewhere, then it's all the more crucial that we keep Fletcher.

    I’d add Palmer and Rhodes to the list. Reslistically, I think we will struggle to shift many of them on.

    If I was a Swansea fan and knew what I know of Clueless and 'must win' games I'd be very worried. He'll spend the build-up to the Stoke game making them sound like Barca and by the time the match kicks off the players will be too scared to play. Swansea 0 Stoke 1. Stitched on....he's a simply dreadful manager.

    He turned it around too quickly. Pressure was off, they were resigned to relegation. Then all of a sudden the tables turned and Swansea had something to lose. That exposes Carlos' weakness. He was good for them in the beginning as he was for us, a free hit, shackles off and attacking football.

    Ignoring the ridiculous negativity following the factual first line, I may have added it up wrong but I've quickly worked out that he's averaged a goal every 73.8 minutes he's been on the pitch since he returned, which is remarkable after such a long lay off. He's the one player we need to avoid selling unless it's for absolutely stupid money.

    I don't think it was a poor team, more the way we set up to play in year 2.

    I understand all those saying it’s only a shirt, and it’s about the players who put it on etc... but after 2 seasons of what we have had and the debacle of this seasons availablity, an available shirt that goes back to stripes will give us all a lift, I believe, and will be another reason for us to get behind the blue and white wizards next season

    'Swans have lost their identity as they stand on the brink' A winless run of seven matches meant Swansea were starting a match in the relegation zone for the first time since 3 March; the afterglow of their initial transformation under Carlos Carvalhal fading rapidly. The Swans were bottom of the Premier League and seemingly destined for relegation when the Portuguese was appointed in December and his impact was immediate, with a run of five wins in nine league games lifting them out of the bottom three. However, Carvalhal's side had become devoid of confidence in recent weeks, scoring only two goals in their sequence of seven games without victory. The home side pressed their opponents at times - fashioning a couple of efforts on goal from Andy King and Sam Clucas - but after they fell behind, such determination looked more like desperation. The sight of the Swans' players aimlessly lumping long balls into Southampton's penalty area was indicative not only of their dismal form this season, but of the way in which the Welsh side - once renowned for their attractive playing style - have lost their identity. Swansea have flirted with relegation too frequently in recent campaigns and, after the constant changing of managers and upheaval off the field, their seven-season stay in the Premier League looks like it is coming to an end.

    Fletcher does contribute quite a bit in my opinion. 11 goals from 24 starts last season was useful, and those goals won us a lot of points. He's the best header of the ball out of our pool of strikers, and is roughly on par with Hooper in terms of holding it up and bringing the midfield into attacks. Still has a lot to offer us. I think our fans under-rate him a bit.
