    Crojack I also think you're right re Gomis/Bony. In the interview HJ gave @ the end of July when he talked about WB it read as though he was inviting offers for him. As for Saturdays game our defense is going to have a hard job, we'v lost 2 of our best defenders we're 4 days before the 1st game and no sign of replacements, so much for strengthening the squad.

    @Crojack, I think you're right. Gomis certainly has looked sharper than Bony as of yet. Just please, no 4-4-2 against MU...

    Manchester United game? Park the bus and play on counter-attack. Gomis up front, Routledge and Dyer on the flanks, Gylfi behind Gomis. 4-5-1.

    Bazgtr, understand your point of view, however we have been in the premiership for 3 years now, we are always looking to pick up players on free transfers or at a low fee, we have to show more ambition, you have to speculate at this level, it's no good being the richest club in the championship

    Spikey, not spending money and high expectations is the Swansea way of doing things. I would be surprised if we don't sell Bony as well. We didn't buy Lyon's top scorer just to have him here sitting on the bench and use him as a sub for Bony. Gomis is bought as a replacement for Bony.

    Spikey one thing I would do at the liberty is to paint those walls under the stadium some colours like black and white two tone instead of that dull concrete grey colour that greets you just after you go through the turn stills and around the toilets areas.

    Spikey the money is going to the foundations of faculties around Swansea for future generations with a large lump of money gone to the development out near fairwood. There is a fund for players to buy, But that is not the full story as sometimes it's not the cost of the players it's his wages he demands every week which if it all goes wrong sends us back into the red. Many clubs have gone this way over the last few years and the team in charge of Swansea have brought them a long way and vowed not for the club to be where they were in the bottom tier in debt and nearly going out of the league.

    The point I am making, we are not improving the ground and we aren't spending money on players, what are we doing with the al the money.
