    Yeah - I reckon Feies is a handsome type of guy!

    Easy and much needed win!

    yeah - not sure if age catching up with Henchoz now. Mellberg has done well and Marinho done REALLY well playing. I'd "trust" Henchoz more than Yepes for example and Rustico is not playing consistant at the moment and I'm leaving Shaw and Pugh in reserves to get game time there

    It's certainly a position I am really lacking anyone that I can "hold my hat on"

    henchoz will likely be let go at end of season but a great servant for me

    Yeah - stupid from the Wigan lad getting himself sent off like that so early

    Man U do indeed still have top players!

    But they seem to have a LOT of regen players now - likely that some of them are quality

    Away to PSG in Gameweek 3 of CL!

    A nice break from the madness of the league

    For those that forgot – here’s how the group looked like – we’re in a fine position in a helluva group!





    And it’s a Eurostar journey for most fans and when we get there the PSG Ultras are mad for it!








    Team News

    Vittek, Feies, Blondel
    all ineligible remember

    And Salas out injured for a while

    8 day break after this and it’s back to hosting Paris at Swansea

    Keane back in and Tevez on bench

    Pizarro and Davies into midfield




    The Game

    "Last Tango in Paris? Not for the Swans as they march on in CL!!"

    Massive blow as Symes goes off after 8 minutes – Tevez comes on

    We put the pressure on PSG and have some good opportunities but fail to score – we largely keep them at Bay in a solid first half

    2 mins into 2nd half and Pizarro puts us ahead through some lovely interplay with him, Mellberg and Tevez

    But the lead is short lived when Luizao equalises for PSG with 1st shot on goal

    Davies replaced by Koumas and Koumas makes a name when he scores a penalty as Bowyer is felled in the area

    PSG do have a final push but they cannot muster another shot on target for a great away day

    Qualification nearly sorted already!






    Pizarro experience vital in these games

    Spoiler!


    Juve lose again and that looks them done!





    Injury News

    Symes will miss the next 2 games – CL return v PSG and a league game – could have been worse I guess!

    And Davies will also miss those 2 games!

    Europa?

    Yeah - Pizarro never let's me down - always 7/10 minimum. Is injury prone so picks up niggles but very important squad player for me

    Great win in Paris! Bad time to be getting injuries.

    Just 1 defeat in 26 is a great league record, btw.

    Not ideal the injuries but could be worse I guess - and we have good cover in both those areas (wel - strikers getting thin on ground!)

    1 defeat is indeed very good - the numbers of draws is not though

    Home to PSG in Gameweek 4 of CL!


    We’ve just added this fella to our shortlist………….





    Team News

    Jamie Langfield has been getting rave reviews in reserves and is given a chance in a group where we are currently looking good – no harm for Tsigalko to have a rest either

    Tevez starts with Vittek, Symes and Salas all out

    Pisani gets an opportunity as Hargreaves rested

    Bellamy comes into the fray and a BIG surprise as 18 year old WELSHman Jason Morgan (talented kid we bought from Italy) is given a spot on the bench!



    The Game

    "A home draw v PSG all but confirm qualification – but today is about the debut of young WELSHman Jason Morgan!!"

    Well, we’ve SMASHED them first half but as so often has happened this season, the opposition’s ONLY shot on goal results in a goal, and that’s the case as Luizao again scores against us and we go into the break 1 down

    We have 3 players all struggling with injuries and 2 in Tevez and O’Donnell are replaced by Davids and Bowyer

    As we have no replacement forward on bench then Bellamy soldiers on and plays up top!

    Straight away Bowyer into the action as he follows up from a Bellamy header and brings us level!

    Jason Morgan comes on a for a debut – great for the lad!

    We try and get the winner but not happening today

    Point is ok and should guarantee qualification though




    PSG goalie did all he could to not give us the 3 points!

    Spoiler!


    A point from our last 2 games will confirm it





    Injury News

    After the high of the previous night, the next day he’s dealt a blow with an injury!






    Fixture News

    A busy period coming up

    Only a draw, but methinks it's enough.

    It seems odd, though. that Juventus and PSG do so poorly considering how well they play nowadays

    Frustrating draw but excellent match from the lads, including Langfield in goal.

    Bad luck with the injuries right now

    We should have won but a draw is ok

    Yeah - PSG prob not that amazing on ODB but I'm surprised by Juve's results!

    Very please with Langfield but he only had 2 shots on goal and let 1 in

    Injuries mounting but none apart from Salas that serious

    Home to 8th place Fulham who are competing for the European places!


    A couple of “Ex-Swans” in Dean Shiels and the “curious case” of Joris Mathijsen



    Team News

    Semi Final of League Cup in a few days’ time but we lead 3-0 in that so we can go as strong as we can today

    Quite a few of the guys are goosed but we largely have a full first XI out




    The Game

    "Swans lose a 2 goal lead and have a last minute goal ruled out – but it’s no more than Fulham deserved!!"

    Fulham have a lot of the ball first half and come out the better side

    We slowly come back into it and create some half chances but the quality in final third is lacking from both team

    Could be a 1 goal game this in 2nd half

    HT and Andrews and Bowyer both booked and not playing great. Rustico and Pizarro on. Pizarro in playmaker role and we let Feies have a freer attacking role

    And it pays off straight away as keane brought down in area. PENALTY! Feies slots it away!

    Then 2-0 minutes later as Keane passes 3 players and smacks it in top corner!

    Fulham then get a way back into the match as they score in 76th minute

    Then out of fecking nowhere they equalise in 88th minute when Yury clips the legs of Vugriunec in the area. And he gets back up and converts

    FFS!

    But then in 90th minute Vittek scores the winner!............................but it’s ruled out for offside

    Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh








    Looking at the stats Fulham had a fine 2nd half and just went for broke when they were 2-0 down

    But Keane gets today’s MOM

    Spoiler!


    Newcastle and Spurs win their games







    Transfer Speculation

    I reassure Mellberg and he’s fine – bloody media trying to upset our players!





    Board Confidence

    Interesting to note the board are not happy with O’Donnell………….





    Confirmed Future Transfer IN

    He was Scouted at the AFCON and looks decent (and cheap) in an area we are struggling in and have some old heads will move on

    Ouch! That was very unfortunate! Those final three match minutes!

    And what's all this about O’Donnell? Can you ignore this?

    Another draw but this one seems more logical given the repartition of chances.

    You reassure Mellberg but then sign another centre back ?

    I can't believe that this is still going. at 155 pages it must be one of the longest stories ever !
    Every time catch up the quality is still as good as ever.

    Agreed. I wanted to read it quickly from the start but unfortunately all the first images are gone.

    Was a crazy end to the game!

    O'Donnell a weird one - think his agent is thinking of ££££ from a move so fed bad info to him

    He's happy at Swansea but doesn't want to sign a new longer term deal so it's very much wait and see

    Few of his teammates are not impressed though

    I liken it the the Raheem Sterling agent scenario!

    Gutted we let in 2 goals but Fulham were excellent 2nd half

    Yep - feel bad about Mellberg and then getting another DC in

    We must be not far off 10 years in now I reckon

    Thanks for the compliment

    Away to Chelsea in 2nd Leg of League Cup Semi Final!

    We lead 3-0 from the first leg





    Team News

    We have best part of a week until our next game (in CL) and as there are some who are ineligible for that game we’ll play them here as we are in a good position

    There is quite a lot of rotation but we are confident as a squad



    The Game
    "Another final on the cards for the Jack Army as they do enough in West London!"

    Christ – Chelsea are RIGHT AT IT

    So much so they get an early goal through Carlton Cole as he picks up a loose ball in box to tap home

    They are fancying this to be the comeback of comebacks but then a big sucker punch to their hopes as Vittek scores a powerful header from a corner

    1-1 at HT

    The 2nd half is an even game which we are fine with – we don’t need to win it

    O’Donnell is having a shocker and Lee Andrews plays in DM which is new for him

    Then Giggs comes on to sure the game up and h does just that we are through to the FINAL





    Good game from Langfield in goal but goalscorer Vittek takes the pundits vote today


    Spoiler!



    So – we’ll face Blackburn in the final








    Competitor Results
    Feck sake – Liverpool, Utd and Spurs all win

    Then Man Utd win again!

    Now 5 points behind them (but we have a game in hand)
