How Did Freddie Fare In The South Wales Derby?

Freddie Woodman helped Swansea to their 5th clean sheet in the league this season as they defeated Cardiff 1-0 in the first South Wales derby in the past five years.

It was a 24th-minute goal by fellow loanee Ben Wilmot that sealed the victory. It was the 19-year-old Watford defender’s first start for Swansea in the Championship.

The win halts a three game run of poor results and catapults Swansea up to 4th in the table. It was also Freddie’s 14 straight start in his loan spell.

Cardiff remain mired in 14th position a full six points out of the playoff places.

    Oddly I may start watching the loan players teams more often than the sick joke being served up by Steve ‘local lad’ Bruce.

    What do we do in training all week? It’s not football clearly.

    Was the half time message to just all stand in our box until they equalised?

    Well said droppy. This side is as good as the Carver sides. We’re looking at a tremendous loss of form from the time of the mighty Rafa!!!

    Gave my man of the match to Almiron as we was our best defender when the wheels came off second half.
    Time and Time again he broke up their attacks
    Don’t know what Dubs was doing for their goal
    Bruce should of brought on subs earlier as a couple of players were out on their feet
    No real difference to last years football sideways backwards hoof to a centre forward who I felt sorry for him as no-one was within 20 yards of him all game(except for twenty minutes first half where we passed and moved with pace)
    Missing Perez who was able to link Rondon and the midfield defence last year
    My merit marks
    Dubravka 5 had nowt to do all game but what the hell was he doing for the goal
    Yedlin 6 did ok but defending went missing to many time’s
    Clark 7 had a decent game defended well got on some great blocks
    Lascalles 7.5 steady away all game and a great header
    Fernadez 7.5 got in some great last gasp tackles – passing a bit rusty – great cross for the goal
    Willems 7 great going forward gives a lot more than Dummett going forward
    nearly scored. Nearly scored – Had a rough time second half when Traore ran at him
    Matty Longstaffe 7 had a excellent first half ran the show for us but faded second half
    Sean Longstaffe 5 had a poor game give away to many stupid fouls – red card not sure. Did not get us going forward to many short balls and backward balls
    Almiron 8 my man of the match – more for his defending second half got us out of trouble time and time again down our right – covered for Yedlin when he went missing. Some great runs and carries but needs a end product when put through – it will come!!
    Maxi 7.5 had a great 60 minutes but ran out of steam – also like Almiron needs a end product – when to shoot – when to pass
    JoeLinton 6.5 struggled today but who wouldn’t when nobody gets near him to help – needs help
    Subs – not on long enough
    Bruce 6 – needed to change subs earlier – maybe put Gayle up front next to JoeLinton and Atsu on earlier when Maxi was flagging
    Also need to hook Sean Longstaffe after a hour.
    Ref – did ok until we should of had a corner – from then on lost the plot
    Ps Woodman will be sore got hit in the nadgers today!!! Ouch!!!’

    let’s not forget Wolves won their last 3 away matches including at Man City.

    Wolves are a good team and this is not a bad result.

    Fed up with sad sack managers. We get one decent manager to come in thirteen years and then tell him to piss off….

    Mr. Brucie needs more clowns and dancing goats around the pitch to distract from our poor overall performances….

    We had strikers who could get goals and a world class manager last year

    We look lost as a team
