You're a scouser. Just go and nick one.

Alan Curtis goal here is still my favourite Swans moment. I was in seat L51 in the wooden stand behind the goal - as I had been for every game during the rise from Division 4 to Division 1 in success

So far Clement has done a great job,long may it continue.   It's a shame that we had 11 wasted games when Bob Bradley was in charge he was totally clueless and out of his depth,there can not have

Swansea City legend Leon Britton has stepped down from his role as Sporting Director to sample some time out of a game that has dominated his life for the last 30 years.

Britton, 37, was initially appointed as Advisor to the Board by the then new chairman Trevor Birch after announcing his retirement as a player in May 2018 with 536 appearances to his name over a 16-year period with the Swans.

The former midfielder played a role alongside Alan Curtis supporting Birch in appointing Steve Cooper as head coach and Andy Scott as head of recruitment before being promoted to the club’s first Sporting Director in September 2019 as the club continued its rebuilding process following relegation from the Premier League.
 

“I’m obviously disappointed to leave,’’ confirmed Britton. “But the time is right for me to take a break, spend some quality time with my family and enjoy the freedom and flexibility of a ‘normal’ life.

“From the time I joined Chelsea as an eight-year-old, moved to Arsenal at nine and became a full-time apprentice with West Ham at 16, football has dominated my life. 

“I was always going to take some time out when I finished playing, but Trevor (Birch) asked me to help him in his restructure of the football side of the club when he arrived; a task that escalated following the departure of Graham Potter to Brighton.

“I said I would help because I love the club, always will, but it was always my intention to step back once things had settled down, which it has following the arrival of Steve (Cooper) and Andy (Scott).

“I’ve enjoyed the role and it has given me a real insight into how a football club operates behind the scenes. It’s been a great experience and I’ve learnt a lot from Trevor and Andy; they’ve been a massive help, together with Steve (Cooper) and I would like to thank them for the opportunity

“But the job is 24/7, all-consuming, and now is the time I have to keep the promise to myself and my family to take a break from the game after nearly 30 years.

“I will keep in Touch with the club and help wherever I can because the Swans and the fans mean everything to me. I really hope it’s not the end of my close relationship with the club and I can come back in some capacity sometime in the future.’’

“We are all sorry to see Leon relinquish his role,’’ explained Birch. “He has made a huge contribution in helping to restructure and drive the football operation forward.

“While he always wanted to take a break from the game, he didn’t hesitate in agreeing to my request to help out when we needed his knowledge, intelligence and passion for the club. I was hoping he may have changed his mind over the lockdown period, but he is focussed on taking a break from the game and we must respect that.

“He has really impressed me over the last 18 months and is respected by everyone at the club. He is an icon of the club who typifies what Swansea City is all about and I’m sure his relationship with the club is not over. The door will always be open for him.’’

Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Leon for his hard work and wish him well for the future.

Excellent start today after the enforced break. Gives hope we can still edge into the play-offs - though I think Boro are one of the 2 worst teams (with Hull) in the Championship at the moment.

Very tight play-off race that is likely to go to the wire. Looking forward to Luton at the Liberty next weekend.

I watched Swans v Luton on Swans TV livestream.

Sadly, yet another tepid home performance. We didn’t deserve to win the game but maybe could have got a point. The red card didn’t make a huge amount of difference.

Realistically, that ends our play-off hopes. It may only be 4 points away but there’s just too many teams above us to expect all of them to lose more points than us.

I think the lads today should be bloody ashamed of themselves,  so much was expected after last week, no passion, no commitment, if a team from the bottom want a kick start to their season, come to the liberty, swans will give it to you!!

It ended up being a good day for Cardiff :Anger::Hair_Out1::Cry3:

Tuesday’s game at Millwall is live on Sky so won’t be shown on Swans TV.

I hope the season doesn’t just fizzle out for us. Not the best run in but less than top 10 would be a real disappointment.

A really good win against Birmingham after conceding early on. Decent performance.

3 tough games coming up; Leeds, Forest, Bristol City.

A goal by Pablo Hernandez in the 89th minute condemned us to defeat against Leeds.

The first half was pretty even with lots of niggly fouls. One good chance for Bamford saved by our keeper.

Leeds brought on 2 subs at half time changed their formation. They were on top for most of the second half but our players worked very hard and stayed in the game. An even better chance for Bamford again saved by Woodman.

We were starting to look tired in the last 10 minutes (maybe could have made more changes?) and Leeds broke down the right before Hernandez half-scuffed his shot into the corner.

We stay 7th and will have to try to pick ourselves up before another tough game at Forest on Wednesday.

2-2 against Forest. Ahead twice, let them back in. Tough game. Pretty even. Could have won it. Red card Naughton.

Little chance of play-offs now. Need other results to go our way.

Extremely hard fought win against Bristol City. The players really battled. 
Unfortunately, Cardiff had a comfortable win at Middlesbrough to leave us in 7th.

Hopes of the play-offs still alive - just. We need to win at Reading and hope Cardiff lose at home to Hull - unlikely, though Hull will need a win to have any chance of staying up.

Only other chance is for Forest to lose to Barnsley and Stoke in their last games and we have a 7 goal turnaround in goal difference.
