Issue 43 preview

The 43rd issue of SoS fanzine will be available prior to the home game with Huddersfield Town at the Liberty on Saturday, and here’s what we’ve got for you…

SwansTrust: Phil Sumbler – We speak to the chairman of the Swansea City Supporters Trust about the recent vote to sell part of their shareholding, the future of the organisation and our transfer dealings amongst other things.

Jacks of all trades – Guto Llewelyn looks at the Swans obsession with signing versatile players rather than key men who specialise in certain positions.

The 11 game curse – Our editor looks at two recent Swans managers who have found themselves out of a job after a poor run of 11 games and asks if Paul Clement might make it a hat-trick.

Strength in depth – Author Keith Haynes looks at the Swans transfer model over the past decade or so and how successful/unsuccessful it has been.

We Should Not Have Sold Gylfi – Steven Carroll explains why the Swans made a mistake over the summer by selling Gylfi Sigurdsson when other clubs refused to sell wantaway players before the transfer window closed.

Georgia Away – Our editor reveals all about his trip to Georgia including a tale of karaoke, a missed connection and aborted landing.

The Next Generation of Addicts – Former editor of South Wales Evening Post looks at addiction in football and reveals some of the tales he heard at Swansea City without revealing any names of course!

Swansea Seasons – It’s last season we look at as part of our regular feature this time around to remind us that in spite of our poor start to this campaign it shows it can still turnaround.

Meet the Jack – 14-year-old Ryan Lewis answers our questions in this issue as part of our regular feature.

Swans news – We catch up on what’s happened since our last issue, including incomings and outgoings as well as Wales’ failure to make the World Cup.

Top 5’s – Ever had someone utter something you really don’t want to hear after a damaging defeat? We give you the top five things you should never say in the immediate aftermath of a game like that.

This issue will be available from Slee Stores Neath Road and Sandfields as well as Good News Swansea Market, the travel club pod as well as around the ground on Saturday, still at the bargain price of £1 (we will be accepting old pound coins for the final time).
