A Challenging Window, But A Successful One

When the transfer window opened at the beginning of last month, the Swans didn’t look like a side that needed to do much business. A striker seemed to be the biggest priority, but other than that the squad looked to be in rude health. But this was a January like no other, very few clubs

Ashley Williams – A Tribute To An All Time Great

When John Toshack broke Swansea City’s record transfer fee to sign Colin Irwin in 1981, no one could have foreseen that the fee of £350,000 would not be broken for over a quarter of a century. As the Swans dropped back down the leagues shortly after that, very little money was spent on transfers and
