'If It's Football, It's Vital'

68% Agree With Selling Fallon

In a recent poll, 68% voted that it was the right decision to sell Fallon providing we signed a replacement.

There was much debate at the time as to whether we should have sold him not. Selling him could have meant we'd be left with just 2 senior strikers but Jackett secured the signing of Pawel Abbott shortly after Rory's departure.

The 300,000 fee we paid Swindon for Fallon a year ago seemed far too high and many fans wanted to see the club get a 'refund'.

Plymouth boss Ian Holloway came in with a rather surprising bid matching what we paid for him. This was turned down much to the annoyance of many Swans fans.

However, Fallon showed his desire to move up a league and the club allowed the player to join the Pilgrims.

I definitely think it was the best deal for all concerned. The club gets their money back on a player that was never worth the transfer fee paid and the player goes up a league.

Our new poll asks where you think we'll finish this season. Another failure in the play-offs? Automatic promotion? Vote now on the right hand side.

no we didn't like the 300,000 we paid for him. Fans got impatient as he took ages to score some goals so they got on his back.
