  1. I think they'd probably be allowed to pick a few extra white guys...

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    This kind of attitude doesn't help. Just because something is technically legal doesn't mean you should do it. People and businesses that don't deal fairly with others should be called out on it.

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    Even by the standards of modern football this stinks of corruption.
  4. The supporters are already paying astronimical ticket prices and the truth is, the club could double the prices again and any additional revenue would just be sucked straight into the pockets of millionaire agents and players. Football as a business model is fundamentally broken and no club can survive in the long term without parachute handouts, regular profitable player sales or a billionaire owner throwing money in periodically.

    Surely bloody not!

    If they want him they can pay us some money rather than cluttering up our wage bill with more subpar players we don't need. Surely Winnall is one of the few players we should be able to turn a decent profit on?
  6. They are off on holiday...

    #SWFC don't need to go mad.

    First things first, we need to replace Loovens, Venacio and Wallace. All three of them have been important players for us. If Venacio signs, it probably still leaves us a centre back short, unless one of the young lads is good enough to play week-in, week-out. Especially as we seem to have settled on three at the back. We only have Pudil, Lees and a bunch of youngsters on the books at present. (I would include Van Aken as a 'promising youngster' as he has at no point looked ready to play in the Championship). I suppose Hutchinson might be able to play there a couple of times a season. After that, some full-backs and another central midfielder are the most important priorities. We lack the flexibility to not play Reach at LWB which needs addressing. We are over-reliant on Jack Hunt being fit on the other side as well. If Jos is confident that any of the young players are ready to make the step up and fill some of those gaps, that's all well and good. It would be nice to get Clare signed up as he seems like a real talent and could save us a few million.

    The 1990's Forestieri

    Youre talking about Guy Whittingham and Mark Pembridge, right?
  9. Nah. For lots of people international football has always been a bit of a sideshow to keep you entertained whilst you are waiting for the season to come around again. It's pretty standard.

    Embarrassing season

    Could we pretend we were founded in 1868?
  11. He can't help it. His entire voice is negative. He could be telling you you've won the lottery and it would sound like he's giving you a cancer diagnosis.
  12. What even is the point of a club like Swansea (or Wednesday come to that) if they don't take the FA cup seriously? Is it just a perpetual sisyphan relegation battle until the end of time?
  13. Did we not swap him for Guy Whittingham?

    Long term Jos....

    That's a funny way of saying 'endless controversy drives up more owlstalk readers...
