  • well, looking at it on form...

    in the last 5 games we are joint 3rd in the table, with 10 pts, alongside Brentford, Hull and Millwall. 
    Reading (13) 'Boro (12) occupy the top 2 places. Cardiff joint 13th with 6 points.

    analysed over 10 games is a different story. 

    We are joint 14th with just 2 more points (12). Scum have 10 more points (16) and sit joint 9th.

    Thanks deekay... the beauty of using copy and paste :joy:
  • I think the referee will be crucial - we will need a strong one. Cardiff will be smarting from the Liberty game and will smell blood given our flakey form and lack of physicality. Not sure who is officiating?
    If the whistler allows a football game to break out we have a chance - otherwise.....
  • Make no mistake, Cardiff are vulnerable and there for the taking. The fans are twichy with Harris, already. The side that faced Carlisle will also form much of side to play us. NML is out for season and Ralls is doubtful. 

    We will have a boost through Brewster. Also, the opportunity to put right our qpe shocker (with our frist team and 2,000 Jacks). Theres also the opportunity to do the double over them. That shouldnt be underestimated. 

    Start well and Cardiff will flap. We can def do it 
  • 1-0 Brewster, yes I have been on the 103  :smiley:

  • I don't do as many away games as I used to, but my son has got us both tickets. I wish I'd said no now. The bus leaves the Liberty at 7:45 - for a midday kick off FFS. Why? I accept that it has a nasty history, but being shoved in there so early will get fans irritated. If they get us to legoland by 9:30, that's a long time to be cooped up under the stand drinking beer that tastes like piss out of flimsy plastic glasses or plastic bottles. I'm not looking forward to this match at all. And don't even get me started on the match itself! :(
  • Elis James, Gabby and Iwan Roberts on the derby game. worth a listen. Those who hate Cooper wont like it!

    I've done this a couple of times since they moved to the new stadium. The buses won't leave at 7.45 - they'll mess about for half an hour in the Liberty car park. They'll then drive the convoy to Cardiff West Services and that's where you will wait the longest. I'd be very surprised if any Swans fan gets into the stadium at 9.30. They'll keep the buses in the Services and slowly escort only one or two buses at a time down to the stadium. They then come back and take another one or two. Takes ages. You might be lucky to get one of the early buses but last time I was unlucky to be one of the last and got in there about half hour before kick off. I would take a book - for the bus , not the match.
    Bubble matches were much simpler at Ninian Park when our buses would arrive all at once - there was a lot more grief from the locals - but there'd be no waiting around anywhere.

    "He's doing a great job" lmao. Clueless.

    They all somehow agree that Potter had a better squad to work with in the first half of last season than Cooper has had this. DJ didn't hit his heights until Feb/Mar, revisionist nonsense.

  • Thank you Jeff. We are in bus 1 apparently. As a matter of interest, what are the arrangements when leaving the ground at the end of the game, or is that dependant upon the result?

    If Danny Gabbidon is contributing I would regard his comments in particular  as being worthwhile/sensible/knowledgeable.
    Perhaps some from the Forum with the most confidence in their opinions could offer themselves to the BBC as an alternative trio.

    From my previous experience Swans fans were kept inside the stadium and then were told to go straight to their particular bus.
  • All these assumptions about Sunday...coaches will probably leave the Liberty in a staggered order so as not to cause chaos on the m4. Rendezvous at Cardiff West services for ticket pick ups and then probably 7/8 coach escort per time to Legoland for the game. The bars will open once our first coaches arrive to serve us whatever is for sale but remember it’s card only.After our win a police escort eventually to the m4 and homeward bound to celebrate a famous victory.....positivity of course.

    My recollection is that we were allowed to go back to the buses straight away but it took a long time for everybody to get back to the buses. Then all the buses were released all at once and then straight back to Swansea, so you won't get the delays on the return journey.
  • Whatsapp message to me from a Cardiff supporter:

    "Not confident at all. I think Harris is out of his depth here and the players need to look at themselves after some displays"

    Hmmm
  • probably a blessing that Gary Medine's contract was paid up before the weekend...


    Jeff_CowbridgePablo
  • and if you are going to the game, they are running a cashless bar. so have your cards at the ready!
  • Sky bias from Jamie Carragher - but who does he want to win the Welsh derby?


    PabloJackareme
  • Well the day has been so weird, butterflys in the stomach, nerves then confident feelings all at the same time.
    Could be a massive day in the history of the derby games played...
    or just another day.

    However it plays out,  I am sure we will see a performance of swans players giving their all from, for club, supporters and the city.
    Certain that the Jack Army will give it everything.

    Rhian Brewster starting, I wonder what awaits.

    Enjoy all

    Woodman,Roberts,Cabango,Wimot,Naughton,Grimes,Byers, Celina, Routs, Ayew, Brewster. Subs. Nordfelt,Guehi, Bidwell, Fulton, Dhanda,Kalulu,Borja. Actually like the starting line up (apart from a distinct lack of pace). Celina seems will play centrally. Shame VdH is still injured. His leadership would have been colossal today.
  • I predicted Brewster would start, but the big question is will he play out wide, with Ayew through the middle. 

    Or will he play Wayne as a false 9?

    I think Rhian and Pops wide. Ayew at 9.

  • In The Manhattan bar in Los Cristianos. A few Swans fans here, all Enjoyo themselves. COYS !!!!!
  • Official site line-up summary suggests Celina at 10, Ayew left and Routledge right with Brewster at 9. Never quite understood why they give away their line/up like that or if some reverse psychology is at work, but I thought I’d mention it for what it’s worth
  • Ayew rarely plays left, and Routs prefers left.

    So if Brewster does play 9, then Ayew will be right, Wayne, left.
  • McBurnie is in the crowd. I wonder if he was on one of the buses at 7.45? 
  • I have no idea what is going to happen today. Two out of form teams. Cardiff have dropped probably the best keeper in the division, and have an untried centre back partnership. We're handing out a debut to Brewster and VdH is a huge loss. Two relatively inexperienced young managers. 

    Your guess is as good as mine!
  • Hope it’s not too big a game for Cabango
