Newcastle Loan Star Relishing A Chance For Derby Glory

Swansea City face their rivals Cardiff City tomorrow at the Liberty Stadium. The match will be Freddie Woodman’s first time experiencing the South Wales derby.

However, the 22-year-old is no stranger to bitter rivalries as he witnessed the Tyne-Wear derby from the bench in 2015. That match was one to forget as Fabricio Coloccini was sent off while giving away a penalty in the first half for a shoulder barge.

It was a soft penalty as we remember it. We’ll not mention who took the penalty.

Sunderland went on to win the match 3-0, and it killed any momentum gained from destroying Norwich City 6-2 the week before.

Tomorrow Freddie has the opportunity to witness the atmosphere of another derby, albeit one not as renowned as the one in the North East.

Speaking to Swanseacity.com had this to say about his excitement for tomorrow’s match

“These are the games you want to play in, I cannot wait to get out there and experience that atmosphere and the roar from our fans.

“I am sure the Liberty will be rocking, the fans are so passionate and want this win so much. We will have them in mind and we want to do it for them.

“I experienced the Newcastle v Sunderland derby, that’s a big game and I am in no doubt that this is a very big occasion too.

“One of the things I remember from those games was getting off the coach behind Jack Colback at Sunderland after he had joined Newcastle from Sunderland.

“I remember this deafening noise of boos and stuff heading his way. We lost 3-0 and I had never experienced an atmosphere like it.

“It almost feels like a pure hatred, but I was desperate to get out there. I loved it, and I cannot wait to see how that game compares to this.”

This will be a good experience for Freddie, and the fixture comes at a pivotal time for both clubs. They are struggling in the league at the moment and are currently situated outside of the play-off places.

Swansea City have dropped to the 9th spot in the Championship after a rough patch of form.

Cardiff are not enjoying their time back in the second-tier either as they are in 14th position.

    Bruce interviewed on Sky says he hasn’t had any discussions re signing reinforcements in January!
    That’s incredible when you look at our goals for!
    Surely by now he can see there ain’t 10 goals total in all the forwards.
    God what a depressing situation we’re in. An owner who doesn’t want to spend and a manager who supports him to save his job which will end in relegation and the manager leading us in the championship next season.
    I’m normally an optimist but 13 years of this shit has beaten me!

    Moonraker or it could be a way of not letting everyone know we are desperate for players and put the price up stupidly high? Or he doesn’t want to risk damaging the confidence of our current players by talking about new players coming into the team. You think he seems to want to get Gayle involved and so he’s not going to come out and say he’s looking at other strikers is he before Gayle has even got on the pitch imagine the impact on him.

    I think you’re confusing SB with a manager with a plan!
    The world and his dog knows our forwards are crap without having to employ MI5.
    5 goals in 9 games gives them a clue!
    SB is a manager who will just go with the flow and we know where that leads us!

    It’s “never frogive, never froget”, actually.

    Speaking of frogs, the french wisely say – “On peut pardonner, mais oublier, c’est impossible.”

    “We can forgive, but forgetting, it’s impossible”
