It's Sunday morning again, and I'm up early for a change!
As it's a Bank Holiday weekend, why not make your coffee a little Irish? Then, when you've sobered up, have a read of my quick round-up of Swansea City news.
Into the Third Round!
A very different looking Swansea City saw out a comfortable 3-0 Capital One Cup win against York City on Tuesday night.
Garry Monk made a host of changes to his team, with players like Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Leon Britton and Franck Tabanou making starts against the League Two side.
And even though York had a few moments of their own, the Premier League Swans made light work of the Minstermen. Nathan Dyer opened the scoring in the second minute, with Matt Grimes and Marvin Emnes adding a second and third in the second half.
A straightforward day at the Liberty Stadium, and Swansea move into the Third Round where they'll face Hull City at the KC Stadium on Tuesday, 22 September.
Swansea City vs Manchester United
Let's get all the 'giants' out of the way now shall we?
I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling that it's the perfect time to take on Man United. We're unbeaten in the first three games, we've already seen a good draw against Chelsea, confidence is high, and we're at home - so what's to fear?
Of course United are looking pretty good themselves, sitting in 4th place in the early Premier League table, with wins against Spurs and Villa. Plus their squad looks a little more coherent than last season, with plenty of danger men. Perhaps read a more detailed preview here.
It's a tricky scoreline tricky to call, so I will go for a very acceptable 1-1.
New home of Forza Swansea
While this blog is going nowhere, I can tell you that during the 2015/16 season I will be blogging for Forza Swansea in association with Yahoo Sport.
It just means the content will have an even bigger audience than before, hopefully spurring me to write more than I do now! I will publish more details next week.
Triumph! Garry Monk looks like a genius, but I think Ki provides a great spark for this team.ReplyDelete
Ki is superb - not sure what Laudrup was thinking when he let him go... But yeah, Monk is pretty close to becoming one of Swansea's greatest managers ever!Delete
