And do not forget Victor Moses, the Stoke City player Monk accused of cheating to win the penalty which turned Swansea City's game at the Britannia Stadium.There was scorn too for Mike Riley, the referees' chief who Monk has tried and failed to get in touch with about the raw deal he feels Swansea are getting.And there was plenty of sympathy for Monk in the Potteries, for the decision to award Stoke a...

Daniel James cleared to play for Swansea City

SWANSEA City have finally received clearance to play summer signing Daniel James — almost 11 weeks after announcing his move from Hull. Swansea were left stunned earlier this month when they were told that Fifa would not ratify James's £72,000 move from Hull because of an issue with the paperwork. But having worked hard with the game's governing body — as well as the Football Association and the Football Association of Wales — Swansea have now been cleared to play the...
Swansea City poised to open contract talks with Wilfried Bony

Swansea City poised to open contract talks with Wilfried Bony

SWANSEA City look set to open talks over a new contract for Wilfried Bony in the next few weeks. Bony has just under three years to run on the deal he signed when he joined Swansea for an initial £12 million from Vitesse Arnhem in the summer of 2013. But Swansea are ready to reward Bony for his contribution - and at the same time attempt to fend off potential suitors - by handing the Ivory Coast powerhouse a contract extension. We have not spoken to Wilfried yet, but in the coming...

HEADS UP COLUMN: Has Daniel Levy dropped a clanger with...

DANIEL Levy is painted as the master of the transfer market, the ultimate negotiator who could buy Lionel Messi, sell Linton Brown and still end up with a profit.He is portrayed as the shrewdest operator in football, a bloke who could flog a bucket of sand to Manchester City's owners or shift a block of ice at the Alaskan FA.Yet the feeling grows that Tottenham Hotspur's chairman has dropped a sizeable clanger by letting Gylfi Sigurdsson join Swansea City.In fairness to Levy, there were not too...

Swans fans' model gets Labour backing

LABOUR is backing the Swansea City approach to running a football club. The party has unveiled plans to guarantee fans a role in the running of their clubs. Under the party's proposals, supporters groups would have a legal right to appoint directors to the board to hold owners to account about issues on and off the pitch. Fans would also have a legal right to buy a portion of a club's shares whenever the ownership changed. The proposals would mean any buyer taking control of the club would also...

Swansea City legend Ivor Allchurch would have been 85 today.

SWANSEA City legend Ivor Allchurch would have been celebrating his 85th birthday today.

Swansea City must find a plan for Peter Crouch if they are to...

GARRY Monk must come up with a plan to smother Peter Crouch if Swansea City are to succeed at Stoke this weekend. Because every time Crouch faces Swansea at the Britannia, he tends to enjoy himself. The 6ft 7in striker scored the Potters' goal when Swansea drew 1-1 in Staffordshire back in February. And he netted twice when Stoke beat Michael Laudrup's Swansea side at home in September 2012. There was more for the former England star to celebrate in February of that year, when his goal helped...

SWANSEA City agreed a fee of around £10 million for Bafetimbi Gomis last year only for the player to turn the move down, according to Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas. Gomis is known to have been one of the strikers who was on Swansea's radar in the summer of 2013 before they paid Vitesse Arnhem an initial £12 million for Wilfried Bony. Now Lyon chief Aulas has claimed a deal was agreed between the clubs for Gomis but that the French international rejected a move because he felt...
