Problems brewing at the club. Cooper told a press conference that the new Chief Executive texted him on Saturday morning to tell him he wasn’t allowed to pick Peterson as he was being sold. Cooper knew nothing about the sale.

The new Chief Executive has only been in place a few weeks and it’s pretty clear from a few press conferences that the relationship between him and Cooper has basically broken down already.

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 has completed the signing of @kaseypalmer45 on a season-long loan from @BristolCity, subject to international clearance.
 

Tottenham complete signing of Wales centre-back Joe Rodon from Swansea. Fee £11m rising to £15m after add-ons. 4-year contract.
 

Joel Latibeaudiere has revealed how ringing endorsements from the likes of Rhian Brewster and Conor Gallagher played a part in his decision to turn down interest from elsewhere to join Swansea City.

The 20-year-old defender has signed a three-year contract at the Liberty Stadium after completing his move from Manchester City, subject to international clearance.

Like new team-mates Marc Guehi and Morgan Gibbs-White, Latibeaudiere played under Swansea boss Steve Cooper in the England Under-17 side that won their World Cup in 2017.

Brewster and Gallagher – who had eye-catching loan spells with the Swans last term – were also in that side, and Latibeaudiere was left in no doubt that Swansea was the right place for him after speaking with them about their experience in SA1.

“I feel it’s the right time to start a new chapter and I am happy to be here,” he said

Swansea City has completed the signing of Ryan Manning from QPR for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

Manning, 24, joins the Swans after nearly six years at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, and will bolster head coach Steve Cooper’s wing-back and midfield options.

He has signed a three-year contract and will wear the number three shirt.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international started his career in his homeland, firstly with Mervue United before moving on to Galway United.

His form in helping them reach the Irish top-flight attracted the interest of a number of English clubs, and he joined QPR in January 2015.

Huge blow for Swansea as Wolves loanee Morgan Gibbs-White is expected to be out for around three months after fracturing his foot in the win over Millwall before the international break.

UPDATE ON SEASON TICKETS FOR 2021-22 SEASON

13 minutes ago
  Club

After what has been a difficult year for everyone, Swansea City would like to update supporters on season tickets for the 2021-22 season as we have released pricing on December 1 for the previous eight years.

The club has been overwhelmed by the support shown by the Jack Army, especially our 2020-21 season ticket holders who have shown incredible loyalty throughout these unprecedented times.

And, following conversations with Swansea City Supporters Trust, we are able to provide details of the season-ticket renewal process ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

We want our fans to ‘Be proud to be a Jack’. We know our club is different because our fans make us very special. During these hard times, we want our supporters to know that better days are coming and that we will be reunited again at our home, the Liberty Stadium, in the future.

Although we can’t be together right now, we need the Jack Army more than ever before.

Throughout these unprecedented times, our 2020-21 season ticket holders have shown unrivalled support. We did not foresee that this season’s season ticket holders would not be allowed to be at games to support Steve Cooper’s team for such a long period of time.

As a result, we feel this is the right time to show our loyal 2020-21 season ticket holders how much we appreciate your understanding with the current circumstances.

The season ticket renewal window for the 2021-22 campaign will open today (Tuesday, December 1) initially only for current season ticket holders who either took the option for streaming and kept revenue in the club, as well season ticket holders who have opted for monthly refunds. 

Supporters who have initially selected the monthly refund plan, but are yet to withdraw monies from their ticketing account balance via the account cashback facility, may request to opt out of the monthly refund option

If there are supporters who have opted for monthly refunds and have already withdrawn funds to your bank account, but wish to renew at the new prices, you can contact the ticket office and arrange to return your withdrawn funds to the club before renewing.

Season ticket holders who elect to opt out of, or return, their monthly refunds to renew at the new prices will receive a streaming code to access SwansTV Live coverage of all remaining home league games and midweek away league games.

We want to take this opportunity to give back to those who have been incredibly supportive to us, by giving them a HUGE discount for next season. 

The prices for 2021-22 season tickets, for those season ticket holders mentioned above, have been confirmed as: 

  • £99 for adults IN ALL STANDS
  • £79 for over-65s and students IN ALL STANDS
  • £49 for under-18s IN ALL STANDS
  • £23 for under-12s IN ALL STANDS

This equates to just £4.30 per game for adults, £3.43 per game for over-65s and students, £2.13 per game for under-18s and just £1 a match for under-12s. 

The ‘early bird’ purchase window has also been removed to ensure there is no pressure on supporters to buy season tickets at this time. Last season, over 80 per cent of season ticket holders purchased season tickets in the historic early bird window.

There will be a further announcement in the New Year regarding new season tickets.

The club recognises the financial impact the pandemic has had on the community, but has opted to launch the season tickets now should any supporters want to purchase season tickets as Christmas presents for their loved ones. 

The significant price reduction means that adults can enjoy up to a £390 price decrease on last season’s season ticket prices, while over-65s and under-18s can enjoy up to £260 and £120 cuts. 

The future generation of Swansea supporters are as important to us as our current loyal fans, and we wanted to ensure matches are as affordable as possible for those Junior Jacks. Therefore, existing under-12s season ticket holders can renew for just £23, which works out at £1 per league game.

The club has been working hard in preparation for getting supporters back to the stadium when it is safe to do so, and it has been difficult for the club not to be able to share this season so far with the Jack Army in full voice at the Liberty and stadiums across the country.

The main objective once the Jack Army are back in the Liberty is to make our home ground a fortress full of supporters singing loud and proud, as it was before matches were played behind closed doors. 

The renewal window with the offer prices outlined above is open until Sunday, February 28, 2021.

General sale of season tickets will be announced at a later date.

Yes, I’m not sure how many went for the ‘streaming option’ instead of a refund for this season. We did - though it would have been slightly cheaper to just pay for each of the streams (as some games are on Sky) - so we’d keep the same seat when (if!) we get back. (My Mother has a wheelchair space exactly where she wants and I just go as her Carer). We have until the end of February to buy and we’ll go once we get vaccinated. The main cost for us is going to be car parking. I can’t take her unless we have a pass for the stadium car park and it cost almost as much as the Season Ticket last season!

Families with more than one ticket probably went for a refund as it only needs one stream for everyone to watch. 

I don’t think there’ll be a waiting list for new Season Tickets for next season anyway - however much they charge for them.

Wales international Declan John has joined Bolton Wanderers on loan for the rest of the season from Swansea City.
 

(Cooper clearly hasn’t like him from the moment he took over and has given him very little chance. IMHO John has been given a raw deal as he had the potential to be a decent left back)

Swansea City have signed Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Ben Hamer on an 18-month deal for an undisclosed fee.

Our reserve goalkeeper has just picked up a serious injury so we had no real back-up keeper at the club.

Bob Latchford will be 70 on Monday.

@blue1878

Hi davidge I loved watching Bob Latchford playing for Everton back in the 70's.  I was at Goodison Park when he got his 30th league goal of the season and won £10,000

Great player and a nice man

Norwich fan here, nice gap opening up with Bournemouth losing, Swansea looked very good at Carrow Road, Tim Krul kept us in the game, hopefully it will be us two. Brentford two games in hand, but they have to win them yet.

No worries about Cardiff, they have plenty of problems. Tod Cantwell destroyed them first half on Saturday

Guess I could give the same reply as last time :P

I still think I’m a realist. Cooper has got the team all working together, trying hard, well organised and committed. We are difficult to beat but don’t really create much.

He still has very limited resources to work with. If everyone stays fit, and we get a couple of loan signings, then we’re in with a very good chance of at least the play offs. If loan signings don’t pan out, and we get 3 or 4  injuries then we have no cover.

We had to sign Hamer from Huddersfield as our only reserve keeper got a bad injury, we recalled a young defender from Newport as we didn’t have cover at the back but he got injured straightaway in training, we are very short upfront - only really a youngster who isn’t quite ready yet.

Norwich look good for automatic promotion. I don’t think you look as good as 2 years ago but the standard in the Championship really isn’t very good this season so lots of teams are in with a chance and Norwich look the best of a mediocre bunch.

Thanks, about 5/6 players now in the 1st team are new so taken time to settle in, and like a lot of teams ravaged by injuries and now covid, but after saying that we have more points at this stage than for many a season

Swansea City has completed the signing of Seattle Sounders forward Jordan Morris on loan for the remainder of the season, subject to international clearance.

The loan agreement includes an option to buy Morris at the end of the 2020-21 season.

The 26-year-old has won 39 caps for the United States national team, scoring 10 goals, while he has 35 MLS goals to his name from 135 appearances with the Sounders.

One of his international goals was the winner in the USA’s Gold Cup final win over Jamaica in 2017, 

Known for his pace, Morris – who had a trial with Bundesliga side Werder Bremen in 2016 -  can play as a central forward or in wide areas, and adds to Steve Cooper’s attacking options following Viktor Gyokeres’ return to Brighton earlier this month.

Morris will wear the number 11 shirt for the Swans, however, due to his arrival in Swansea today (Friday), he is not available for Saturday's FA Cup tie against Nottingham Forest.

Swansea City have confirmed the signing of Derby County forward Morgan Whittaker for an undisclosed fee.

Swansea City also sealed the signings of Paul Arriola and Kieron Freeman in the early hours of the morning to wrap up a decent January transfer window.

Although manager Steve Cooper wasn't able to add the striker he so desperately wanted, he did manage to bring in six new faces in Ben Hamer, Conor Hourihane, Jordan Morris, Morgan Whittaker, Arriola and Freeman to replace the players he lost during the month.

Twenty-five-year-old Arriola arrives on loan until the end of the season, while Freeman moved from Swindon on a permanent deal.

The 28-year-old defender has signed on until the end of the season, while Jordon Garrick has gone in the opposite direction on loan until the end of the 2020-21 campaign, subject to EFL approval.
