@DanThwaite @RPadarn @megandaviesnews @spiritof58wales @DylanEbz yw'r dyn i ofyn! @MikeBubbins @SteveSpeirs4 @simonrug @ScottQuinnell I’d bring back the Merit Table @carolyn_hitt @ceritheviking I absolutely loved this: @PhilRichards82 I think you’re spot on there Phil @PhilRichards82 That’s my opinion. And you can’t fault his acquisitions in January. It’s not an easy club to manage at the moment @LFCjparny Sorry I meant Firmino! @JoffStreet He knows where the goal is, and lives off scraps @jcorrigangolf Thanks manUnless you detest John and I and everything we stand for, why not vote for us in the British Podcast Awards Listene… FT. The Swans are marching on. Ignore that last one2-1. Now looking at that first tweet again @PhilRichards82 We either seemed to play well or play badly and get lucky @LFCjparny He’s a very good young player with a lot of potential. But it’s a lot to ask of him to get in the side a… 2-0 up. I hereby retract the first tweet completely and am looking forward to enjoying this new dawn at The Liberty @DanThwaite @swanabi If the Swans or Wales score after 60 seconds, I just want the game to end there and then and go home @swanabi Easy to forget that football is meant to be entertainingWe’re now 1-0 up. I take it all backWatching the Swans. That great football we played back at the start of the season feels like a very long time ago.really good piece about the difficulties facing comedy and theatre
