  1. Paul Brush

    seeing the improved "condition" of Mark Gower at Swansea (i.e. seriously fit) and given the lack of inspiration (more long balls from SUFC) and increasing number of on pitch fiascos (short corners, set pieces) do you think Brushy needs to brush up on his coaching methods ..... lets not brush...

    Standing at the cross-roads - read this Ron Martin!

    I think the club is currently at a cross roads. We can either spend money and try and buy our way out of possible trouble with expensive short term solutions, or we can struggle on with what we've got, topped up by loan signings and the occasional more expensive signing when the right player...

    Question The Yeovil Game

    Do you not think that the Yeovil game was a prime example of a game that a player like Mark Gower would have thrived and 'ran the show' so to speak. The game was crying out for a long range screamer or some pace on the wing! So the question is are we lacking a flair player?

    Pre-Match Thread Ricey's Report: Huddersfield Town (H) 13/12/08

    6 Points None The Richer. Saturday's game against Huddersfield town is a definate 6 pointer for the Shrimpers. They are directly below us and if Huddersfield win they go above us, this is something we don't want to happen and why this game is of great improtance to us. I think a major issue...

    When times were worse

    Ok, things aren't going brilliantly at the moment, but lets remember where we came from. I've been tidying some boxes this week, and stumbled across a copy of the Swansea Evening Post, dated Saturday December 13th 2003 (apologies, but this is obviously written from the perspective of a Swans...
  10. Creating a problem

    When we lost Mark Gower in the summer I knew we would struggle to score goals this year. A couple of years ago Gower and Maher created a huge amount of goals to help us to succesive promotions plus Eastwood and Wayne Gray were able to create goals for themselves with their pace and skill...
