    I'm not sure I've ever seen a red card and an 8 rating before

    Was playing superbly before that red!

    Away to PSV in our 3rd Pre Season game!


    Gonna be tough this – especially with a rotated team

    And we are up against our old friend George Boateng



    Team News

    Full rotation is made!

    Here is team and bench





    The Game

    "PSV batter Swans in everything but the scoreline!”

    PSV the much better team in first half and we fail to have ANY shots

    We look weak in CM with 3 33+ players and none of them are really sticking their foot in!

    Andy Johnson moved into CM holding role which seems better for him than the attacking CM position and he scores straight away in 2nd half!

    But again, PSV easily the better team but they can’t get the deserved equaliser today and we are fortunate to win





    Average team performance but Vaughan was immense in the sticks

    Spoiler!




    Injury News

    Feck sake – another new (but old!) boy has an injury and we send him to the specialists for a couple of weeks

    He’ll miss last pre-season game and first 3 league games of the season





    Last Pre-Season game at home to Newport!

    We should smash ‘em



    Team News

    The “kids” and 2nd string get a game

    Here is team and bench





    The Game

    "A win, but a pretty flat performance in what should have been a field day!”

    Newport fight really hard first half and limit us to 1 goal and a debut goal it is from Symes!

    2nd half we improve but cannot get a 2nd as Hanson in Newport’s goal is having a belter of a game

    Not a great showing from those looking to impress me!






    Our young strikers gelled well together but GK Hanson got the pundit's vote

    Spoiler!

    Correct - although PSV were by far the better team on the day

    Are PSV/Feyenoord great on ODB (I am a good 6 seasons or more in now though)

    We are challenging for Premier League and are CL Semi Finalists so I would be expecting to maybe be favourites over these clubs?

    You should be beating these teams though, as you're now one of the best in England!

    The golden oldies are also getting ready for retirement by the sounds of it

    My midfield 3 v PSV had an average age of about 34 so my bad in picking a midfield without ‘legs’

    We still won though

    Start of season next!
