Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 · 157 Comments

You cannot cry too much about spilled milk is the way the saying goes – and the only reason we didn’t come away with three points yesterday is when we had our chances to score in the second half yesterday – we didn’t take them – so there’s nobody else to blame but ourselves – fact.

Praise From Swansea Manager – Newcastle Much Better Now

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 · 17 Comments

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup was happy about his side’s 1-0 home win against Newcastle yesterday at the Liberty Stadium, and in some of his interviews he confessed that a small club like Swansea could have had a let-down after their massive win last Sunday, when they won the Capital One (League) Cup at Wembley – and it’s the first major trophy in their history.

Pardew – We Can Do Well In Europe – We Have Great Players

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 · 10 Comments

While most of us are commiserating over losing yet another league game on the road yesterday at Swansea, admittedly  one we gave ourselves every chance of winning in that second half, where we looked a very good side – apart from our poor finishing – Alan Pardew seems upbeat about our European tie against FC Anzhi Makhachkala coming up on the next two Thursdays, in the round of the last 16.
