Now that we have PL football again next season, he might well stay.
    Either way, you're dead right - we need to invest heavily.....but wisely. No more 15m fees for the likes of Borja Baston. That means keeping Huw Jenkins away from the transfer market. Clement was responsible for bringing in Carroll, Olsson, Ayew (J) and Narsingh. Huge improvement on some of the dross brought in by Jenkins.
    Of the 20 goals you've scored in the league since Clement came in, 17 of them were either scored by Llorente or Sigurdsson, or came courtesy of a Sigurdsson assist. For all the players you mentioned, they really came to the fore when Llorente was out. Had Llorente been out for the season, Swansea would have gone down.

    Of course Sigurdsson will be gone. Wages will determine so.

    I bet you are right.
    And I bet either Fulham or Reading go up
    Leaving us with trips to 'Uddesfield and the remoter outskirts of Sheffield. FFS....

    Yes, that's a fair assessment. Gonzo was on Radio Wales last night and as usual the pricks didn't probe him. In essence we'll be running the same model under the Americans with perhaps the lease of the stadium acquired.

    Gonzo said that we should work within financial parameters, well excuse me but why didn't he do that before? He's burned through managers and signed (more often than not) average players/those that don't fit our style and racked up a 20m operating loss.

    The sooner that parasite is out of the club, the better. Hopefully we'll hear more from the Trust's QC on the matter

    I took a breif look at planet swans when you were in deep shit and all the talk was about revolt and protests. I had a look when you were doing well and everything was hunky dory.

    This is not a criticism as such but just an observation of how much fans will put up with for success. You or Hull would be no different to us if you had been rebranded. We as fans have very little power and there is a disease running through the English game.

    Again, hard not to agree with that. I refuse to put another penny directly into the club whilst the previous regime are rewarded for the way they sold the club. Although there is talk that the previous owners are tapping people up to post on their behalf and spin things. I await with interest to see what the Trust's next move is, if there's a case to force a share sale they have to go for it.

    The sad thing is that, for everyone who walks away in protest at a club when they're in the Premier League, there are plenty of so-called fans waiting in the wings to come in. That's the true devil in this. We lost a good number of fans over the rebrand, that's been well documented, but they were easily replaced by others wanting to watch a Championship winning team and team in the top division. Once we went down and it was clear there were problems, those new fans disappeared. Combine that with the fans who had left a few seasons before and attendances plummeted quite dramatically to the point where Tan could no longer ignore it, unlike when we were in the Premier League and those leaving over his rebrand didn't affect him whatsoever.

    Again, spot on. I'm glad we didn't go down, as too many people would have been on the sausage roll and the City is f*cked enough as it is. My boy is going to be really happy when I take him to see Stevenage play, then again, it's his nearest pro team...
