Just a quick heads up to everyone...

In an attempt to encourage people to participate in debate on the new SCFC2 Forum - http://www.scfc2.co.uk/forums/ - we have temporarily removed the ability to post messages on this Guestbook.

I know this action will probably cause uproar but it is being done in the interests of improving this site for the longer term.

The forum is open for everyone to read what is on there but only registered users are able to post.

So please give the new forum a go and discuss the Swans, Wales or just things in general.

Thank you and here's to a win tomorrow!

10) Swansea need to find a spark from somewhere

Swansea are not quite in “must-win” territory yet but it is getting that way. Three home defeats out of three is, even if one came against Manchester United, a terrible start and far removed from the fortress-like air the Liberty Stadium assumed after Paul Clement’s arrival in January. Huddersfield are next up on Saturday and anything bar three points, or at the very least a much more creative performance, would suggest there is serious trouble ahead. They have managed only 11 shots on target in seven games, and 46 shots overall. It suggests the losses of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente have been keenly felt and it is hard to see who of the remaining crop can reverse the trend. Renato Sanches will miss the game through injury and could not have been expected to replicate Sigurdsson’s impact straight off the bat anyway; perhaps it is time for Clement to show some faith in the Spanish playmaker Roque Mesa, who has made only one start in the league so far. Mesa did well as a half-time substitute against Watford last month before making the error that led to Richarlison’s winner; he has struggled to settle in Wales but in the circumstances a vote of confidence could be no bad thing. Swansea need some kind of spark, some element of risk, if their campaign is not to spiral rapidly downwards. NA

Jackland Friday, 13 October 2017 11:54
Everybody seems to pick out Mesa’s mistake against, what about MAWSON with that half hearted tackle, schoolboy defending, it was his ball, yet shit out, went in with his leg leg. Pathetic.

Jacklamd Friday, 13 October 2017 11:55
WATFORD.

Jackland Friday, 13 October 2017 11:57
FFS, this keyboard, left leg

Billy Williams Friday, 13 October 2017 12:22
Totally agree Jackland.
Messa,s pass was deflected into the path of the Watford player.
Mawson,s tackle was shocking.
It was his ball all the way.
That tackle cost us a point

Dan dare Friday, 13 October 2017 12:38
My team for tomorrow

Fab

Rangel,fernadez,mawson,olsen

temperance 7 Friday, 13 October 2017 13:14
I think we should wheel out vera lyn before the start to sing a couple of songs your selections might recognise and be inspired to break into a gallop

Dan dare Friday, 13 October 2017 14:31
Many a fine tune played on an old fiddle!☺

Crumbs.

I just watched the Press Conference on the swans site and in
answer to a question about how to lift the confidence of a Welsh
crowd after the international result Paul Clement said "I watched the
international the other night... Wales against Northern Ireland". ??????"

I hope he realises we aren't playing Brighton on Saturday.

Ponty jack Friday, 13 October 2017 14:34
I hope he learned from the ROI they shall not pass commitment. In the last 5 mins SCFC needs to foul shove tackle obstruct block whatever necessary. Last minute Mawson v Watford could have taken out Richardson. Yellow or red. 1 point. West Ham Fer effectively escorted Musamba past Naughton - booking 1 point. If they cannot do it then get in Meylor. He will. Perhaps Fulton can do the scruffy stuff. Not the Swansea way but needs must.

“Carlo has said he will come and see me,” Clement explained.

“I don’t know when yet, but I am looking forward to having him here, and to him spending some time at the training ground and watching us play.”

Natterjack Thursday, 12 October 2017 17:33
....and hopefully giving me some advice as to what my best team is. lol thumbs up

Sanches a major doubt for tomorrow & Bony 50:50 .
From Clements press conference

Dave Thursday, 12 October 2017 13:40
Another 0 to our name then.

James Thursday, 12 October 2017 15:39
After he was fit to make the bench for the Portugal World Cup qualifier the other night.

Duncan Thursday, 12 October 2017 16:57
Dave, I wouldn't say that; neither have scored a goal yet.

We'll probably bag a couple without them...

Super Swans.

deejay Thursday, 12 October 2017 16:58
Yes, James, and Bony wasn't even in the squad that drew
0-0 with Mali on 6th October.

A quick search on Sanches shows his last appearance at international
level was for the U21s (70 minutes) against Wales in September.

What with Ki substituted in the 28th minute of the friendly against Morocco
on Tuesday the international break outside the Home Countries has a
rather fishy smell about it. Perhaps Sanches wants away from his Premier League
experience wink

In the know Thursday, 12 October 2017 18:12
Sanches down singleton hospital today.

Project Koeman close to fruition. Advocaat & Gullit will be fired leaving a vacancy for the Holland job. Fancy Big Sam for the Everton job. Someone needs to keep them up somehow. Huddersfield - Tight strong good defense so 6-0 the Swans this weekend

marrio99 Thursday, 12 October 2017 00:38
Why would they sack advocaat he only took the job on in may.

Martyn Jones Thursday, 12 October 2017 16:51
Holland quoted as saying if he gets us to Russia then he will stay. Obvious implication being he doesn't stay as he didn't get them to Russia. Quotes below

The Dutch FA’s technical director, Hans van Breukelen, said: “There were two scenarios. We opt for the longer term or we do everything that is possible to get to the 2018 World Cup. We chose the second scenario. It had to be a very experienced professional, preferably an authority.”

Cant find the original quote I read yesterday with Dutch saying he only stays if they get to Russia

I'm still reeling from the comprehensive response from the man of Pont y faen.

DDWT Thursday, 12 October 2017 10:47
Haha - that made me chuckle.

Fair play Jeff did an awesome job clap

Just as well post appears here at least I don't get adverts obliterating my view like on the new site !

Jeff-Cowbridge Thursday, 12 October 2017 16:27
Unfortunately (fortunately?) I've had a lot of practice at that sort of thing over the last 20 years embarrassment

Jackattack Thursday, 12 October 2017 18:38
Harold with a name like that I'd be very tempted to wind you're neck in.

It was not about Mondays game.
What about the 5 they drew and the one they lost?
Lets be fair Wales are a second rate team, just like the Swans.
After watching the home nations I have come to the conclusion that British players are terrible, apart from Harry Kane. dance thumbs up

Dai Wednesday, 11 October 2017 19:47
Coleman has done well with the players he's got.
You only got to look at the bench to see Wales are down to the bare bones.

But Clement can sign and sell players.
You look at Swansea's bench and you can see £30 mill worth of players sitting there while we lose a game.
He still don't know what his best team or formation is!
He's bought clucas and don't know where to play him.
We should be looking for a replacement now before it's to late

Can't wait to see what team he picks sat and what weird formation he plays.
Something from page 49 of the school teachers guide to football

Mg Wednesday, 11 October 2017 22:39
Dai, its getting really tedious now. First it was the "we have never had it so good" crap and now its all PC's fault. Anything to deflect blame from the board. Well i will give you one. Selling llorente on the last day of the transfer window and thinking bony could waltz in and replace him. Utter disaster by the board that may well take us down.

Big G Wednesday, 11 October 2017 23:19
Dai,

Where on earth can you see 30 million worth of players on our bench?!

Or Is it the old Ron Atkinson trick of going to the wrong bench?

Truth is we sold, sold, sold in the summer but what did we actually buy to replace our 2 main attacking assets? Sweet F A!

Ponty jack Wednesday, 11 October 2017 23:22
Just watched clip of Argentina turning their tournament around. Messi hatrick. Losing Bale was critical. On form he is a game changer. He took Wales to Euro 16 but was not fully fit for WC 18.

Jack London Thursday, 12 October 2017 12:45
Mg - Clement himself has said that he was fully involved in the transfer decisions that took place this summer. He clearly was the driving force between bringing in Sanches and Abraham (and good on him for using his contacts to bring some talented young players in on loan - it's what a lot of people on here were hoping he would do). There is no evidence to suggest that the other sales and purchases were done over his head.

You obviously see something in Clement which most of the rest of us are missing. Are you able to articulate it so we can understand why you are defending him so passionately?

Dai Thursday, 12 October 2017 18:21
Mg perhaps you have not been supporting the swans very long,but unless you know different
This is the most successful period in the clubs history

As far as I'm aware Clement picks the team and the formation we play,not the board.
So the buck stops with him.
Clement had the final say on who we signed and let go,he said so himself on TV.

Something is not right when you playing players out of position, sometimes we have boney,Massa,clucas on the bench,worth over £37 mill just those 3.

Get back to playing 4_5_1 with pacey wingers and Britton and message in midfield.
It's the only formation that suits boney.
Not this diamond shyte

Mg Thursday, 12 October 2017 22:41
He got us out of the board's disastrous bob bradley dogs dinner so we can all be thankful for that. He has sorted our defence out but probably felt like crying when the board gave the llorente deal the green light. You can say what you like about final say but there is not a chance he agreed getting rid of llorente was good business. And i doubt bony was on his shopping list either. He will learn and will have to start to put pressure on the board to spend just a shame they allowed such a poor transfer window to pass us by AGAIN. Lessons learnt and next level etc

Dal Friday, 13 October 2017 07:56
You forget mg that llorente wanted out ,spurs or chelsea he wanted to go.
Pherhaps he did not rate clement and did not want to play negative football.
Clement only saved his own neck because cork got injured and he was advised to pick britton.
Lets see what team and wonderful formation he picks sat

Mg Friday, 13 October 2017 11:35
lots of players want to leave but if the club have a strong board they are told, NO, you are staying son and as a professional, Llorente would have got on with it. Also PC was told he was staying

we are playing a new system this season and hopefully we have the players to implement it, Getting rid of PC now is madness and we have to be patient to allow 2 players you were jumping up and down with joy about in the window - sanches and bony - time to get match fit - warnings were made by some guestbookers about the risky transfer window and sadly it has turned out that way

by the way we got rid of two wingers, barrow and montero and i seem to recall i was one of very very few on here who was sad to see him leave

Dal Friday, 13 October 2017 12:45
I for one was not jumping up and down about boney and sanches..
I could see through clement last year,he was saved by three players siggy llorentte and britton.
Dont like the way he plays. No wingers no pace.
I bet he dreams of a team of alan corks.

You think Clement is the man for the job I dont

Mg Friday, 13 October 2017 12:59
it was you or another Dai on this board who told us all to stop moaning cos the squad was better this season than last season and that everything was fine and dandy (ad nauseam) and now it is "PC is rubbish" (ad nauseam)

Dal Friday, 13 October 2017 14:35
The squad is good enough to keep us up.
Its the team selections is the problem

Welsh players likened to a football club ... (from a CCFC site)

Hennessey: Crystal Palace (sh*te)
Gunter: West Brom (Solid & always tries hard)
Davies: Fulham (nice touches but a bit flowery)
Chester: West Brom
Williams: Chesterfield (look at their league position)
King: Burton Albion (add own thought here)
Allen: Man City (we lost the game when that pr*ck McLean took him out)
Ledley: Bristol Rovers (unfortunately second best but tried hard)
Lawrence: Cardiff City (never gave up) MoM for Wales after Allen went off
Rambo: This is really tough coz he just had an off day AND was played out of position. But ... Swansea
Hal Robson Kanu: West Brom ... oh, hang on

Dave Wednesday, 11 October 2017 11:03
Lawrence was bloody awful.

Ponty jack Wednesday, 11 October 2017 11:22
Why did they underperform? Pressure from ROI players? The return trip from Georgia? Were they overhyped and nervous. Personally I do not care about the anthem. That is for Katherine Jenkins and the crowd. Overhyped in my view. The Roi defenders were very nervous and it needed a clear head and concentration. Then some of those free kicks would have forced Randolph into action and he can be shakey. I alway remember an article in the Times about the Wembley Wales v England game 1999. The Times identified the Welsh front three of Bassey Tom Jones and Jenkins K I think and concluded England never had a chance.

Jon Wednesday, 11 October 2017 12:37
Our free kicks were shocking all night, Ramsey had half a dozen where, I kid you not, I could have done better at nearly 60 (no exaggeration), then Tom Lawrence had a go in the dying seconds, well, the less said the better about that one.

So Bale, our main dead ball specialist was out, whoopdy doo, we have 11 professional footballers on the pitch, don't tell me none can take a free kick

Sally Mali Wednesday, 11 October 2017 13:18
Wales record against the ROI before the match was hardly awe inspiring.

In the last 10 matches Wales had won only 1 game.

None in the last 7!

Ponty Jack Wednesday, 11 October 2017 17:40
It would have been interesting if 0-0 at 80 mins and both teams going out. Would O' Neil have changed tactics allow Wales space. We will never know. I expect the Mediteraenians to use their creative skills to extricate bookings for rough house challenges to face a depleted ROI team in the second leg. Like Wales they have no depth in their squad.

deejay Wednesday, 11 October 2017 19:35
"Like Wales they have no depth in their squad".

Much like two club teams gracing the Liberty this year with Welsh
international players moving off to bigger and better English (or French)
clubs.

One thing Coleman and his staff seemed to have overlooked was how
frequently Ben Davies has been chosen by Pochettino to take corners
from the right side instead of Christian Eriksen this season. I'd reckon the
Spurs Manager is a good judge of such things.

James Wednesday, 11 October 2017 20:32
deejay

I thought exactly the same thing on Monday.

Why didn't they leave Ben take the corners and free kicks.

His left foot has been wicked for Spurs this season
