Maybe panic is a little strong... but a sense of unease always creeps in when your club is rock bottom of a table, regardless of how many games have been played.
But we all knew it would be like this before the season started! Didn't we?
Okay, I was quite confident before the Man United game and assumed the Swans would pick up at least a point, but a loss to the champions was quite a predictable result in retrospect. And away to Spurs? That too was likely to end in a loss, a draw at best (that didn't stop me putting money on Swansea to win 2-1).
What I'm saying is most Swans fans expected to have zero points from two games. Maybe we didn't expect to be rock bottom (especially with Cardiff in the mix), but things aren't always predictable in football (if they were I wouldn't be giving £20 a week to Mr William Hill...)
So now isn't the time to panic if you are a fan of Swansea.
Despite a very difficult start, Swansea finally have a chance to put some points on the board. West Brom away won't be the simplest game, but a point there is certainly up for grabs - if the players play like they want it. Then Liverpool at home? It's not too far fetched to say at least a point is available in that game too.
However, these points will only come with good performances. I don't really agree with Rangel insisting that Swansea deserved a point at White Heart Lane - Swansea's performance there was way too patchy and messy. If anything Spurs probably deserved a higher victory. Thankfully Michel Vorm was on hand to save face.
One thing we may all agree on is that if Swansea are going to start picking up points, Wilfried Bony has to start. I'm not sure if player fatigue is still a concern for Michael Laudrup, but he seems to be bringing Bony on when it's too late to change the game. I'd love to see him (Bony, not Laudrup) start against West Brom, alongside Michu. It's an attacking set-up, yes, but it's surely what we need to see some Premier League goals!
To conclude, let's all calm down for now. This was to be expected. We have another nine months of this and if the negativity starts now it's going to be a long season! As many of you have said: "let's see what the table looks like at Christmas time" - a sentiment I wholeheartedly agree with.
Now let's finish off Petrolul Ploiesti mid-week to regain some confidence!
