After losing our first two games in the Premier League, as we did late season too, we got back on track two weeks ago with a great 3-0 win against West Ham, and we looked a good team in the second half even if we don’t have obvious big stars in the team.
Well, at least none that cost us mega bucks to sign – not yet anyway.
Rafa Benitez showed how good a manager he is by forming a team and getting the very best out of players he has at the club, and he will continue to do that this season.
That’s one reason we are still upbeat about the season.
Assistant manager Francisco de Miguel Moreno (Moreno) at his press conference today – when he filled in for Rafa Benitez – expects Swansea to be confident at the Liberty Stadium.
Moreno gave a good press conference today – we must show passion and intensity
This is some of what Paco said during his press conference today, as he spoke in good English and addressed Swansea and the injury to Chancel Mbemba – which is not as bad as first thought:
“Swansea are doing well. They finished last season doing very, very well. They are a good side – there is no doubt about that,”
“They have a good manager, so it is going to be a tough game for us.”
“Their momentum looks good, but after our game (against West Ham), I think our momentum can start to be good.”
“So, we have to continue and be sure we have the same commitment, the same passion and the same intensity we showed in the last game.”
“That is our priority now.”
“Obviously, we are managing different options (for the Chancel Mbemba injury), but we are still to decide. We are training with different options, as well.”
“Hopefully, we have a solution. It’s not a massive problem for us, I think. We have enough players to play there and we will put out a strong team, for sure.”
We need a win on Sunday and that will two wins in a row and will raise the spirits of Geordie fans everywhere.
