The curtain comes down on the 2015/6 season on Sunday as Manchester City visit south Wales. Ric Turner from http://bluemoon-mcfc.co.uk/ answers our questions ahead of the game. How’s your season been? It’s been a very disappointing season overall. Obviously winning the Capital One Cup and getting to the semi-final of the Champions League was nice,

Opposition View – Liverpool

Thanks to John  Pearman of Red All Over The Land fanzine for answering our questions ahead of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool at the Liberty. It’s been a big week for Liverpool as a City with the “unlawful killing” verdict at the Hillsborough inquests. What’s the mood like on Merseyside in light of this?  It’s one

Opposition View – Newcastle United

We speak to editor of Newcastle United Fanzine True Faith, Michael Martin, ahead of the Swans weekend trip to St James’ Park. It’s been another poor season for Newcastle this term, what has gone wrong? Where do you start? This season has been in the post for years because the club isn’t really run as

Bring back Brendan

Now that Garry Monk has finally been put out of his misery, attention will turn to who Swansea City should replace him with in order to revive the clubs fortunes. For me our biggest problem is that we seem to have lost our identity. We have moved away from the triangles, short sharp passing and

Opposition View – Leicester City

Gary Silke of the Fox Fanzine answers our questions for our regular Opposition View piece this week. How long have you supported Leicester and what was the first game you ever attended? 22nd November 1975 – an ill-tempered 0-0 draw between Jimmy Bloomfield’s Leicester and Bobby Robson’s Ipswich at Filbert Street. I loved every second.

It’s a trip to Anfield for Swansea City this weekend. Red All Over The Land fanzine editor John Pearman tells us about Liverpool’s season so far… How would you assess your season so far? Expectations weren’t at the usual level back in August but even so, disappointing especially the home form.  However, for many teams

Opposition View – AFC Bournemouth

Peter Bell of Cherry Chimes answers our questions ahead of our clash with Bournemouth this weekend. How long have you supported Bournemouth and what was your first game? Ha, I’m an old man! I lived in Bournemouth from the age of four so I can remember people talking about the legendary Ted MacDougall although my

Strikers who might be available in January

With only five goals in our last eight league games there has been much talk amongst the Jack Army about the need for us to sign another striker when the transfer window opens. Our January buys haven’t always been successful in the past, especially our loan recruits from abroad (barring Gylfi Sigurdsson) so I’m going
