    I thought the same thing, but since I started doing it I haven't lost a single penalty shootout. Call it luck or coincidence, but at the end of the day it's a game of numbers.

    South Wales Derby Time!

    10th place Wrexham head to South Wales for a Welsh encounter!

    Again, a few changes made given the extra time exploits from previous fixture

    “Easy afternoon for the Swans vs 10 man Wrexham!”

    Nearly 9,000 fans packed into the ground for North v South

    The game was as good as over as a contest by the 30th minute.

    A Lacey/Alsop combination work iot well for Jack who rounds the keeper and taps it in

    5 minutes later and it’s James Thomas going around Van Der Kwaak who brings him down and see’s red!

    Howard slots away the pen and from there on in until the half time whistle and then the full time whistle, this is actually a game where we look to see the game out and conserve energy over what has been a crazy period!




    We won’t get many easier Welsh derby wins than this!


    Spoiler!


    Hull, 3rd and 4th all win so it’s very much “as is”






    23rd place Oxford away next. May look easy enough on paper but they have just hot some decent form as they look to get out of relegation places

    “A walk in the park in leafy Oxford!

    But feck that – we are the Swans and we mean BUSINESS!

    We charge into a 2-0 lead in the first half not letting Oxford get a foothold in the game

    The strikeforce get a goal each – Thomas and Alsop

    We take it a bit easier 2nd half where we are now more experienced seeing games out but it nearly comes to bite us in the arse with a late consolation goal for Oxford





    Routine win against perceived cannon fodder. The unbeaten league run keeps going……….

    Spoiler!



    7 points behind 1st but 13 points ahead of 4th

    Getting closer!

    Hull was a good side ODB, same with Rushden - though more due to mooney

    Let's hope you can clinch the gap closer, with no cup games, ball in your court

    We have Hull coming up soon so that will be a big game but they can't be far off promoted now

    Rushden ready to jump into Top 3 if any of us have a bad run

    Ryan Williams still with them?

    Always used to be sold to either a PL side or Crystal Palace on my ODB games

    No-one can stop you now. A good season already.

    You're probably already thinking about the squad for next season more than about this season.

    Hull is probably going to win the title, though.

    Yes - delighted so far!

    Not thinking about next season yet - you never know what happens . . . .

    Yeah - Hull are looking strong in a massive charge

    Yes - 2 cracking wins but most teams around us holding their own as well

    Always a pleasure to have the bragging rights in Wales!

    Don't drop points - good advice that and you might be a mind reader . . . .

    Monthly Awards!

    I am named Manager of the Month and Michael Jack is Young Player of the month!





    Away to 8th place Bristol Rovers.

    Jack and Jenkins are given a breather for this game and replaced by Carlisle and Butler. I’ve put Coomber into the reserves now to give him regular football as he seemed to have been having less of an impact which is understandable from a young kid

    “Swans are out of the blocks faster than Usain Bolt and romp home!!”


    Wow – clinical first half! 6 shots and all 6 on target

    And we score from 3 of them!

    Absolute easy street 2nd half managing the game effectively – we’ll happily take a 3-0 win and head back down the M4 please!




    Blasted them good and proper in the first half!


    Spoiler!


    Hull and Lincoln both win but 4th place Rushden lose




    Sheff Wed bid 190k for “Big Rog” – FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


    Bottom of the table Shrewsbury next at home against former Welsh International – Kevin Ratcliffe!

    Am expecting 3 points here!

    “10 Man Swans lucky to get a draw at home to BOTTOM placed Shrewsbury!”

    And that is why you should never count your chicken in this game

    Going in very confident, I made a few changes as we have top of the table Hull next

    Key moment of the game was a harsh Red Card for O’Leary when he “pushed” Shrewsbury’s Henderson!

    But we go into HT 0-0 and a chance to change our tactics

    We kept the same home formation by moving Lacey to midfield but with a backward forward arrow

    Our positivity pays off when Jason Smith flicks on a corner and Alan Tate volleyed it home!

    But a ball over the top leaves Henderson run on to it and clip it over Freestone

    Shrewsbury then went for the winner but we managed to hold them out for a 1-1 draw




    For what I was expecting to be an easy home win was the opposite and arguably we were lucky to pick up a point!

    Big shout to the defensive unit who performed admirably

    Spoiler!



    1st, 3rd and 4th all win which is a kick in the teeth for us. And with that, Hull are guaranteed promotion!



    Swansea boss Redknapp69 reprimanded by FA


    O’Leary is banned for 4 games for a “push” – fucking joke that and we appeal immediately as well as complain about the ref!



    And what do the old geezers at the FA do?................................






    MUPPETS!


    And they reject the appeal as well – IDIOTS!

    Gratz on the manager of the month award! Good win against Bristol, but O'Leary costs you two points against Shrewsbury Did you fine him after the game?

    A four game suspension is ridiculous and it's good to see you stand up against those f*ckers at the FA. The fine goes out of the clubs finances?

    Firts time I won the award since start of season!

    Nope - didn't fine him - thought it was totally undeserved red card hence me complaianing to FA about the inept referees!

    Think the 4 games is he already has 10 yellow cards this season so asume it's some sort of "totting up" process

    Good call on the fine - never thought about that!

    Yes - it does

    Would be good if the game forced you not to pick a team during this period or Ass Man has to pick

    I think the FA are being xenophobic as we are a Welsh club in their English league

    Away to top of the table and already promoted Hull

    Full strength apart from the banned O’Leary

    “Swans tame Tiger’s roar at Hull in tope of the table clash!”

    Maybe it’s because they are already promoted but we made much the better start to the game and the 1st half in general.

    Bonus penalty in 11th minute when Jack’s legs were taken away. Michael Howard converts the spot kick!

    Roared on by a “tigerish” crows, after good play by Elliot, Keats hit a ferocious strike past the hapless Freestone.

    But just before half time, some lovely play between Jack, Alsop, Jenkins and Thomas, setup Jenkins to put us back in the lead!

    Hull came back in the 2nd half with a decent push but we held firm.

    The last 20 minutes went by with a whimper with us playing on the counter attack and maybe Hull already relaxed in the fact they are already promoted




    Great to get one over the league leaders and back to winning form


    Spoiler!


    Lincoln win but 4th place Rushden lose – we’re nearly there!






    18th place York at home – a win here would put us very close to automatic promotion!

    “2 injured players and a last minute winner in a crazy match against York!”

    An expected strong starts yields us a goal with a high ball from Lacey finished off by Jenkins

    But we’re back on level terms within 7 minute after a lung bursting run from Talbot who fired it low and hard past Big Rog

    In a shock event we were then behind from no other than the Ex Swans striker we sold – Steve Watkin – a speculative effort loops Freestone

    We are by far the better team at HT but are behind 

    Howard has a niggle so Carlisle fits on at left back and Butler comes on

    Instant impact from Carlisle setting up Alsop who put us back on level terms!

    Then a justified winner in the last minute where Lace sets up Butler who has a pop from distance – to all our amazement he wins it for Swansea at the death!






    Great strength of character to come back and win that one

    Spoiler!



    Hull win, Lincoln lose and Rushden can only draw which means and automatic play off spot for us!




    Injury News

    Jason Smith out for 10 days leaves a big gap in DC with O’Leary still banned

    Alsop out 3 weeks is just as big a blow but will give Goodfellow more game time

    James Coomber also out 3 weeks which will halt some reserve game time for him
