Good Grief. Hope not. I had a look, and he's 39. Last heard of playing for some icelandic outfit a few years back.

Re: RUMOUR - Nigel Quashie

Yes I know we have a plethora of quality midfielders but we are talking about an experienced pro, especially at this level - he's been there and done it. I've heard Tevreden has had more than one private meeting with Quashie in the past week and hopefully a deal can be wrapped up soon. Thoughts? He...

Re: McDermott, Clarke, Adkins or Pardew

I think the disappointing thing for me is it seems we didn't carry on the performance against Villa, which was excellent and showed what you described, carry on in subsequent games to be fair, haven't got to watch us for weeks, and don't really 'do' streams, so looking forward to being able to make...

Re: BFTG Swansea

Bacuna is a growing influence everytime I see him play. Club should slash ticket prices to a fiver for cup games. Devoid of an atmosphere games such as this will be flat. There's nothing really between £5 and £10. I mean - I know it's double, but it's only an extra fiver. People didn't come because...

Re: BFTG Swansea

I watched the game on an internet stream (I know :roll: ) -Bacuna is quality and fits into our style of play really well. Doesn't panic on the ball and breaks play up well. Needs to start - Ilori, so composed on the ball. If teams are going to put us under pressure we need someone like him at the b...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

It seems ludicrous to me that a Premier League club would shut down it's academy, they can easily afford it. Hopefully the FA look into the reasons why they would shut down their academy because if they want England to a force at the International stage, they can't have a scenario where a top divis...

Re: BFTG Swansea

Well that was a depressing evening. Not so much the performance or even the result but how far we are behind Swansea as a club. Since the play off final they have gone from strength to strength winning a major trophy along the way and becoming an established Premier league club. Whilst we look a mi...

Re: Team for Swansea.

obita/Richards injured; Blackett rested; Gunter LB by default Fair. But leads me to the conclusion that Gunter is generally on the teamsheet by default, and the position he plays in will depend on who else is picked. The only game I remember him not playing last season was a cup game he was suspend...

Ah ok, I wasn't at that game, but knew Gunter had been captain. So, where did he play then, if Rinomhota was RB? RCB? RWB?

2-0 Edwards, Swift

so, that's - 0-0 at half time, 2-0 at full-time, extra time anyway, as per "NothingClubsNotAllowedBeatBigClubsRule", then 2-2 AET, and 1-4 on penos, with them being allowed 5 penalty-takers, and us 1.

Have I got that right?

Re: Team for Swansea.

Think Popa is injured. I expect Kelly to be rested and also a start for Bacuna. Maybe see Rinamohta get a game ahead of Gunter again? Otherwise, reckon that's quite close. Gives McCleary and Obita some much needed game time and perhaps Beerens as well. Why would Rinomhota (note spelling!) get a gam...

Re: Shocking and disgusting behaviour

I mean blue smoke and chanting football fans is a pretty good give away it wasn't anything particularly sinister.

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Kuhl looked competent in his first team runouts but didn't look any better than Jake Taylor or Ryan Edwards. Tanner spent 2 years on the bench at Plymouth and Fosu struggled to get games in League 2. Quite a lot of players "don't look out of place" when they get a runout with the first te...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

we're going to have to disagree Hound. The players have all, bar Kelly, fallen short. They were given the opportunity to be Championship players and they didn't achieve it. None of them who went out on loan showed anything close to the levels of performance expected. It's disappointing and hopefull...
