    That's correct. The official DataEditor allows you to see it and change it (before starting a fresh game) and CMScout allows you to see it it in your saved games if you care to look (which I don't).

    Home to Chelsea in the first Premier League game of the “final” season!




    Team News

    I decide Vaughan may be better at LB

    Koumas drops back into CM playmaker role

    Fitzgerald is a striker but I play him as FWD and Earnshaw is a FWD but plays as Striker!

    A lot of pressure on Jelleyman (DM), Weston and Griffiths in DC

    Lots of “options” on the bench!







    The Game

    "A new hero is born as the Swans start the season off in style!

    What a debut for Earnshaw as he gets a BRACE in the first half!

    Bellamy again plays him in for the first to get us off to a fine start then he gets on the end of a Matthew Jones through ball and hits a speculative shot for the 2nd!

    We’ve been clinical in the first half!

    Chelsea come back into the game 2nd half but we hold them at bay

    Mad last few mins as Giggs surges forward and finds himself in a free position as a Weston low cross gives him a simple finish.

    Chelsea then get a consolation goal as the game draws to a close and a fine start to Premier League proceedings!







    Ernie has a belter of a debut – but Giggs again instrumental from the bench!


    Spoiler!


    Some interesting results for our “rivals” on the opening day!

    My point was it is an English competition, therefore it should qualify for the WELSH treatment.

    Good result for the WELSH team. 1-0 for the WELSH against European dream team.

    Excellent start for the all-Welsh boys

    Weston 9, Griffiths 8, J. Vaughan 8, you weren't let down by your new defense. And Earnshaw

    Think it probably helps playing 2 DC's in DC instead of trying to "shoehorn" others into a posiion they may not be that comfortable with

    Only 1 game though - let's see how we fare after 10 or so!

    Away to Everton in the Premier League – they had a bore draw in their first match!



    They still have the “wonderkid” that is Wayne Rooney!






    Team News

    Just the one change as Simon Davies is back from injury

    Koumas moves up to AM/FWD and Fitzgerald is cut from the squad!




    The Game

    "Rearguard action frustrates the Swans who only take a point back to South Wales!

    We ANNIHILATE Everton first half but cannot score and get past their goalkeeper






    2nd half and the theme continues, Simon Davies is having a cracker of a game and plays in Koumas who scores with a low drive – the least we deserve!

    Everton then go mad and create some chances

    Then the fecking bluenoses equalise as Rooney bends one in from a tight angle

    We throw the kitchen sink in last few mins – but to no avail – it’s a frustrating away point but a bloody good performance!








    Simon Davies did all he could today!


    Spoiler!


    Man Utd drop points and draw so this is how the table looks after 2 games!






    Board Feedback

    The Swans Trust gives the thumbs up to the start the all WELSH team has made













    Champions League – Group Phase 1 Draw

    Will take that – Juve will be tough be could be a lot worse!






    Wales International News

    Wahahahahahahaha – we have EIGHTEEN guys called up

    Never seen the board so happy with a 0-0. What are there season expectations ?

    All of your players on international duty

    That might cause problems later though.

    First game away from home from an all WELSH team

    They also understand how much we fecking BATTERED them as well so think they were happy with way we played really

    Board want us to be challenging for title which is no suprise given we've been winners or therabouts for last few seasons

    Never thought of that

    I "think/hope" we should be ok as would think WALES just play games in the standard Int'l windows

    Is it really every single Welsh player in the squad?

    Good performance, it's a draw but very encouraging nonetheless.

    Terrific performance, but sad to walk off with a point. Still a step in right direction. Surely only helps the team bond if they are all playing international together

    Good performance. Given the pattern of the match, not sure you would have won either with the All-Stars squad

    Some may say it’s madness after the signing of Totti but we agree a deal for the Argentinian superstar PABLO AIMAR!

    Looks like a belter for the CM playmaker position or further up if needs be









    Home to Bradford in Premier League – let’s take out our frustration on them!



    They have a lot of Ex-Swans there such as the recently departed Mohammed Hassan, Jered Ifil, Shaun Derry and Mika Vyrynan!


    Team News

    No change to the team – Simon Davies is a bit goosed but it’s the International Break after this so he wants to play and help us get the big fat “W”




    The Game

    "Bore draw as a limp and lifeless Swans drop more points at home!

    Strong start from us and all our shots on target but saved but then Bradford have a spell and our dangerous.

    The game then lulls to the half time break – could be changes here if no performance improvement after 15 or so mins

    Changes are made but it’s a flat performance today and although we force the keeper into good saves, I’m not sure we did enough to get the points today – MORE dropped points






    Bradford keeper did well to give them a point


    Spoiler!



    Man Utd beat Liverpool 2-0 at Anfield

    We are already 4 points behind the leaders – but it’s not a bad start to the season under this new team………..





    Confirmed Transfer OUT

    Dave Randall didn’t want to sign a new deal and would be behind pecking order with new recruits and lack of games so we made a few quid on him………

    Sorry AMC!







    Injury News

    Weston shouldn’t miss any of our fixtures though as it’s the Int’l break







    Award News


    Well deserved for a good start!

    Meh... two points lost clearly. But as Zan man said, you're still unbeaten and shipping very few goals.

    When does the CL starts ?

    It won't be easy for the Welsh lads. But let's trust them. If they gell well together great things may happen yet!
