  1. Fuchs or Chilwell

    I don't think this season should have a clear winner. Sharing/horses for courses. I was really impressed with his attacking down the wing while playing as a left back against shefd u. Simpson got forward just as much but was shown up by it. Use fuchs where we expect to have tp defend more and chilwell when we don't. In fact, I'd like to see the same with amartey and simpson and it would set us up well for next season and the next stage of transition in our style of play. The next run of games should suit chilwell/amartey more. Ps. Wouldnt object to spending big in either position though in the summer.
  2. My take is that he's played the depression card and theres not a ****ing thing the club can do about it. Even if they fined him it could easily be discrimination. As a sufferer myself i dont use the phrase "playing the depression card" lightly but it is nigh on impossible to prove, as there is "medical depression" (which at it's worst case could be termed "clinical" depression?, which would likely be a lifelong bedfellow, that needs monitoring, controlling, and treating (medication et al) and then what ive had to learn, there is also justifiable depression, where the circumstances dictate that even a "non-sufferer" would feel "medical depression" symptoms just brought on by shit circumstances. This can also be treated in exactly the same way and could easily be a total one off and they never have another "bout" Having had shit times at work myself, feeling trapped etc and wanting better (and made worse if it is of your own doing - ie signing a contract with no release clause) this has certainly triggered a downward spiral for me at times, and speaking to others who have suffered one off bouts, this is often the cause for them as well. Whether you agree with whether it is justfiable, there is often no proof and the club have played it right as the model employer, whether they did so willingly or under duress on advice. If it really was depression of either sort, the clubs treatment appears the best chance of him getting back to form for us. If it wasn't, we cant prove shit anyway and he has played with taboo subjects to get what he wants. Its certainly the beginning of the end of our relationship at the very least. If puel chooses to get him involved he gets my support because, 1. On the chance it was real, its the rifht thing to do, And 2. If it wasnt, because its still the best we could do with the hand we've been dealt.

    50m + mahrez. 🤣 or some young lad out on loan and tell them he's worth 15m

    Kinell I actually remember that. Thanks
  5. Swansea City (H) Pre Match Thread

    That explains why i cant recall it. First "marquee" final friendly.i.didnt bother with having hated all the matches I've been to where they dont end up opening the whole ground. (May be wrong on this particular game but the line of thought still stands) (Still ended up at the shit fleetwood home game though, just can't seem to say no enough)
  6. Swansea City (H) Pre Match Thread

    At least between the two of you, you have convinced me it actually happened. I just recall thinking he was shit and his sale must go against the trade descriptions act. I genuinely think that I normally give players longer than most, but him looking like he is coming good made me happily eat humble pie. I'm now excited to see if it could work. I remember quotes when he signed that he wanted to play as a number 10 but agree with the general consensus that he looks better as the main man, but not good enough to oust our main man. One things for certain, if we could get both on form and in the same team, and diabate can show that his first game was not a one off, then Mahrez better hope the door don't hit him in the arse on his way out.
  7. Swansea City (H) Pre Match Thread

    I obviously want us to win but you can't discount form. Hardly a fair comment re "bottom 3" On it's own. Win 2 and they could be 10th. Lose 2 and we could be 9th. Hardly the gap you've made out it is.
  8. Swansea City (H) Pre Match Thread

    I agree, now's the time. I said last week that that is definitely the future but that he had not done enough to dislodge James. Now I don' think James has done enough to keep his place and with silly bollocks gone walkabouts his experience will now be useful in the team as well. Having rewatched his last assist for nacho I wonder whether the okazaki role might be good for him, and tomorrows as good a game as any to find out
  9. Should have sold Mahrez

    As one great boss once told me. Yes, people are inconsistent... I think reading between the lines he was telling me to deal with it.
  10. Good answer. I now stand down. You have put your case ethically and fairly. In fairness that was my gut reaction to reading that post but you have since gone on to explain it so well I can't help but respect your points. Good posts. Personally I don' think there is a right or wrong answer. I feel for him, a bit, but the bottom line is tough shit riyad. The market has moved and we won't have our pants pulled.down by the big boys. Edit: Here, have a like. If I could, you'd have two. Cos 1 like means a click to me, But it means a great deal to you. (Mr. Wendell yeah yeèahhhhhh 🤣😎)
  11. You do realise we had a match last night don't you. And that we were paying his wages for yesterday, to play football.for us.

    I think that's a hell of a signing (But then I thought that about musa and slimani)

    It might not be my preference compared to what we have, but before the Thais came along and delivered heaven, but after 10 years plus of utter shite, I'd have swapped my left arm to do what they've managed. It's certainly not boring, and when.one hero drops off (vydra) another one comes along from nowhere (richarlison) Some good managers hidden in there as well (flores and silva (pre tapping up)) not mazarri.
