I'm going to be listening to his press conference intently tonight. If he is as flaky is a I suspect, it could become evident soon.
I wouldn’t bother

We’re a club in decline. Our challenge was to get back up whilst we had the parachute payments. Now that they’ve ended we’re far more likely to go down than up.
If we go down we'll be basically back where those c***s Dineen and Jenkins said we'd never be again.

Edit, not 'said', promised hand on heart as 'true supporters'. Still at least they are rich.
I agree 100%, but they didn't employ Martin, he's got some fanciful idea that we can play like Peps teams, the guy is a fraud, its pathetic, any players we had/got with pace he's got rid or side lined them.

I’m off to listen to some music and enjoy a drink whilst forgetting that I’m remotely interested in football.
Yes the short break was so relaxing. Now back to the same frustrating gsmes.

Already booked Luton tickets. Do I need a sick note?

I suspect it’s players that don’t spend all their time blowing smoke up his behind to be honest.

We signed a wing back. We need a wing back. Said wing back isn’t even given a tiny chance.

The only thing i can think of is that we are playing this poorly on purpose so no team comes in for Joel before the window closes

From what I saw, we never looked like breaking them down, and our defence was even more shakey than last season, and that's saying something. Worrying times.

I think this too. I think he's that sort of bloke. Shallow and plays players that (edit - pretend to) adore him while freezing the rest out.

Let's hope it's the one good game this season then😁

Well from memory Martin wanted to put in a performance in front of the home crowd

He succeeded.

He's had 50 odd games, a full pre-season and he still can't organise a defence or get us to successfully play out from the back. The mistakes we were making in his first month in the job are still being made today.

We've got a very good first 11 of players this season and they are going to be wasted under Martin.

I imagine he thought the same as every Swans fan should. Which is it is an absolute shambles.

With the players we had out there or available today quite how anyone managed to make us that bad is almost beyond comprehension.

We have signed two centre backs, one of whom is supposed to be the next bright young thing and our defence is unfathomably dreadful. We signed a wing back in January and another on loan this summer and neither started. It’s inexcusable. As is, by the way, picking Fulton.
