This thread is to discuss former Swansea City players playing at other clubs during the 2021/22 season.
Joe Rodon Connor Roberts Ben Davies Rhian Brewster Oli McBurnie
None getting a first team game
About £50m in transfers
Early days for Connor but Lowton will have to get injured for Connor to get a game and Joe only plays Europa
Now what do we need in January loans again?
Looked as if Ollie played as a 10 today .
Well the grass is not always greener springs to mind
Or you could say they are Premier league players probably on 4 times the salary they were on with the Swans .
In my opinion Rodon and Roberts have a chance of being regulars .
Dont think Ben Davies will have much game time in the Premier League with Spurs , part of the first team squad , players in the Europa league .
Ollie Championship player , Brewster still learning the game .
And dont forget Dan James
Rodon nor Davies will get a look in while Nuno Espirito Santo is at the helm at Spurs.
Davies has less to gripe about, because Regulon is class. But even Ben is a better Centreback than Dier, who is dire.
lots of rumours that Cooper is looking to get Brewster on loan at Florist in January.
Connor Roberts makes his debut for Burnley tonight
Sinclair on the bench for north end tonight who should be ahead v scouse B😃
A little update on two of our ex-spanish players, Borja Baston is the leading scorer at his club Real Oviedo in the segunda division scoring 5 goals in 11 matches while Roque Mesa has played in all 12 matches for his club Real Valladolid and has the clubs most passes and goal assists to his name.
Preston should have scored a couple of goals first half.
You know when your getting on a bit when Ian Rush great nephew Owen Beck comes on sub for Liverpool.
Midfielder Kieran Evans, released by the Swans in summer 2020 was released at Conference North club Gloucester City early in October after signing for the club after an earlier trial period in August 2021.
Ali Al-Hamadi signs for Wycombe on 18 month deal
This lad gets no luck at all. Doing really well at Bolton, but has done his ACL.
There is talk that Connor Roberts could leave Burnley on loan in January ,
Connor needs to be playing regularly.
When will they learn... the Swansea curse is very real.
While the pay check may be better, it was a silly move given there is no clear spot for him in the Burnley first team. Connor needs to be playing regularly if he wants to keep his place in the Wales team, he is not irreplaceable.
If I remember correctly Charlie Taylor took a time to be a regular left back for Burnley .
The probability is that if we hadn't have sold Connor we wouldn't have been able to sign Flynn Downes or Joel Piroe.
@Colin_swansea I'm not saying it was a bad move for us, rather for his career. So far this is proving to be true.
@Malc Charlie Taylor signed at 23, still quite young in the football world. At 26 Connor is now entering/in his prime, while at the same time playing less and less football. I think things will work out for Connor one way or another, but he doesn't have the time Taylor had when signing.
Best case scenario in my eyes is we get promoted, and bring him home.
Some talk online about him coming back on loan to us in January.
Not exactly sure how that would work out.
Reallly we need a left footed CB and left footed WB plus another creative attacking midfielder/forward.
I wonder if Connor was the manager's signing or not.
Seems a strange signing, considering they already had at least 2 rightbacks.
I struggle to see Connor now fitting into the team , but who knows.
It would have been better for CR’s career if his agent had drawn up a contract to guarantee him enough games at Burnley to keep the engine ticking over. Is that a prerequisite of contracts anyway like it is with loan contracts?
Can't see the Burnley manager Dyce agreeing to that as he's very much his own man and doesn't take to being dictated to, especially agents
Would be very surprised if any manager would be dictated by players or agents , slippery slope if they accepted those terms .
Ok, cheers for the replies. It was just a thought.
