    No problem. Your final home game will be easy enough, unless you get a red card or two.

    Only 2nd half we really pressured but a draw is ok

    I’m trying to work out what result means we CANT qualify?!

    Yeah - should all be five and given we’re at home would hope to win or draw at worst

    Assume they’d need to beat us by a couple of goals and Lazio to win to not go through

    Was it a 4 game ban for Tsigalko?

    Hmm, draw is a draw but the last game is still winnable. Just avoid defeat and you're through.

    No idea why - he did have a red card in September but 4 games seems harsh!

    Home to Marseille in final game of Group Phase 2 in Champions League!


    Great referee name for this game!





    Team News

    For those available they are fully fit

    We have Wigan in League in 3 days’ time but we cannot afford to rotate here – we need to qualify

    Salmon back fit and straight into starting line-up. Inzaghi dropped from squad

    Bellamy comes in for Mulryne in CM


    The Game

    "The most boring 1st half leads to an explosion of goals 2nd half as Swans qualify with ease!”

    Well – feck all happens first half






    And here’s how the table stands – I’ll take that!






    But the 2nd half we really come to the fore and sort our shit out

    A brace from Simon Davies and Robbie Keane firing is through to qualification with ease!

    Happy days – as could have ended up sticky if they scored!





    Simon Davies once again the architect

    The “spine” was great today


    Spoiler!



    Lazio batter Ajax and we both end up qualifying with ease




    Champions League Quarter Final Draw


    No team will be easy at this stage…………

    Glad we got job done in the end

    No team looking at them in quarters would have been easy - maybe I got one of the better draws?

    Home in 2nd leg which could be vital as well!

    No easy teams there, well done on qualification and in style too.

    Took a while - NOTHING happened in 1st half

    We made harder work of group than maybe we should but topping it is lovely stugg - if we dodn't we would have drawn Real Madrid

    League is the focus though given where we reside in table - Anything we do in CL is a bonus this year

    I ike AC Milan a lot IRL

    They've stil got some cracking players (Sheva/Salas/Seedorf etc) but I bet they haven't played against Jthe likes of ohn Hartson or Jason Koumas before!

    Home to Wigan who are bottom of the table – surely a win here?!

    They are in awful form





    But they do have the “wonderkid” that is Lee Young Pyo!






    Team News

    After this game we have a 2 week break before the EFL Cup Final

    So – we go strong for those that are fit

    Yury is banned (for 3 games) so Vaughan comes in

    Glen Johnson, Stam and Simon Davies all need a rest so replaced by Delaney, Mellberg and Bowyer

    O’Donnell given a chance for Matthew Jones in DM


    The Game

    "Only 1 victor in this top v bottom clash – and Wigan are no match for us!”

    There is a reason why we are top and they are bottom – we go for the throat from the off

    After a fine O’Donnell run, he is stopped in his tracks but Delaney picks it up and smashes it home for his 1st goal for Swans!

    Before HT it’s great to see Bellamy get on the scoresheet as Keane unselfishly plays him in when he could have scored himself

    Next goal is key and it’s a pen to Wigan as O’Donnell makes a foul in the air

    But Vaughan SAVES it from Lee Young Pyo

    Wigan deflated and a late Salmon goal adds gloss to the result




    Both full backs were amazing today but Bellamy has a fine game in midfield


    Spoiler!



    Sadly Man U and Liverpool both win as well.

    Looks like we should have top 4 sorted for CL footie next year which is always an objective!




    Injury News

    During Int’l Break we pick up an injury – he’ll miss the Cup Final and in toal around 4-5 games

    Wigan did not stand a chance!

    It's VERY tight up there!

    Wigan are flying out of the league - horrific form they are in and no real quality there

    An expected easy win for us - but if they scored that pen it could have been different!

    Yeah - we are on an AMAZING run yet Liverpool and Utd keep winning - we can't drop points...........

    Well – it’s Final day – and it’s Swansea v Man Utd!




    We’re up against this fella’s top team (Matthias Sammer)






    Our Swans Fans have made the trip to Wembley and are in fine voice!









    Man Utd have injuries to a couple of “big hitters” but we have our own problems with “Yury” banned and Mellberg injured




    And there is no way Sammer is playing the kids against us as he also goes full strength……….

    Indeed - sme performance please lads!

    Well - if we're gonna beat them let's do it against their first team!

    Bruggink - the fecker better not stir the pot. Shame it didn't work out - he just didn't really fit as a striker and we didn't play and AM/F which is really his position

    Massive game - can we get our 2nd piece of silverware in about 7 years (FA Cup win only other one)

    We go into it with confidence after the thumping win over Wigan though

    You won the lower leagues as well didn't you? Although I guess what you mean is of the top honours on offer.

    Team News

    We have Milan away in 3 days’ time but there is a trophy on the line here so we’ll go as strong as we can

    Only 5 subs allowed so we take a risk by putting Finnan on bench covering defence and DM

    Lescott has been excellent at LB in his absence so he gets the nod for the big game



    The Game

    "All action final and a tale of 2 halves……but who wins the Cup?!”

    We come out of the blocks fast and are easily the better team in 1st half but can’t hit a barn door

    Salmon and Keane have 4 efforts and NONE of them are on target

    HT and Lescott and Koumas have knocks – they are replaced by Finnan and Pizarro

    Man U come right back into it 2nd half so much so there is the first goal of the game

    Spoiler!


    And it’s all Utd now when………..

    Spoiler!



    Swans start to get some possession late on then in the last minute…………

    Spoiler!



    So…………
