Hernandez is a great signing. You're certainly pulling them out of the bag!

I think in truth it is the lure of Laudrup first, then Swansea City second - got no problem with that!

No disrespect to Rodgers (a top manager in the making) but I honestly don't think Michu, De Guzman, Ki and now Hernandez would have been anywhere near our books if he was still with us.

Now obviously he has the Liverpool legacy as his ammunition to attract better players, but as usual at Swansea, the club moves on and improves - everyone worries at the time but it has been the same since Jackett / Martinez era.

And on the summer transfers, our books are very healthy in that we still have about £7 million left over from the sale of Allen, Sinclair and the Rodgers compo. Furthermore we have improved the team considerbly. Happy days.

Apparently we are trying to sign a young winger from Feyernoord for Just under £1m - Jerson Cabral.

Word is Ronald Koeman has told Laudrup this kid could be the real deal but is lazy as a cat - needs a kick up the arse.

Worth a punt in my view!

Still be nice to get a striker today as competition for big Danny.

Quiet in here! Probably for good reason!

6 points against Reading and Wigan and Laudrup will be the King of Denmark again I am sure...

We got off to a flyer, but then the loss of five outfield starting eleven players started to show. Taylor being the one that broke the camel's back, he is sorely missed, as good as Ben Davies is, he's young and doesn't go forward enough. Chico getting banned (was bound to happen at some point), a dire ref (Everton game and I heard that Leon and Dyer had been ill before it) and coming up against teams and managers that always do well against hasn't helped. The new players are still gelling. Ki looks a quality signing and I think Hernandez is going to take sometime to get used to things (he was never going to get anywhere at Stoke). Worryingly, Ashley Williams is carrying an injury and he doesn't look as comfortable as last season.

We'll be fine as long as we keep calm and pass it Leon smile

SwanJack - agree with your post.

Our defence is frankly in tatters. We miss Caulker big time who did his job quietly and efficiently. Rangel's deficiencies are being shown up playing with Chico who is not IMO a good enough replacement. Tate was frankly embarrasing (legend that he is).

Davies is doing admirably being thrown in the deep-end but yes, he is no Taylor who always gives the opposition something else to worry about.

Ki looks class and will become a top buy. De Guzman seems to flit in and out and doesn't seem to want to get his shorts dirty. Hernandez looks a bit shell-shocked but wouldn't you be when your first start is to come up agains Walters, Huth, Shawcross et al! Britton does his best but we sorely miss Allen who, along with Leon, was always willing to do the dirty work.

Thank god Vorm seems to be getting back to something like his best!

I thought that Kemi would play a part this season, but he seems to be contstantly injured, he would be an advantage in more physical games. I think Chico will be ok, although he's a completely different type of player to Caulker (who got called up to the Enlgand squad if I heard correctly, just shows the class of payer were missing this year).

It's all bollo from a disgrace of a paper. It makes me angry that such rubbish is printed by a hack that doesn't know shcensoredit from shinola as far as the Swans are concerned. It was also stirred up by talkshcensoredite, their welsh football reporter thinking that Michu was a centre forward ffs. Anyhow sleep easy after reading these,

Although we lost, I thought we played superbly. We had a few chances to take the lead and draw level. We were not outclassed and didn't look like a team playing out of their skin in a David/Goliath cup game. Were city poor, who knows, who cares,that's the team were faced. Ben Davies and Chico getting better every game. Really enjoyed Davies' no nonsense approach with Balotelli towards the end (£450 a week going toe to toe with £immoral a week!!)

A very encouraging display indeed.

It wasn't a backs to the wall display either. It was cultured and planned. We were well organised and solid defensively which has got to be the biggest positive.

Davies is a revelation, Rangel was excellent in attack and Ki is superb.

Got to keep it up now!

Some superb movement and passing from all the team. Pablo H now beginning to get into it big time, superb performance from him. Leon head and shoulders above Allen wink , selling him and getting Michu and Ki, well it's all been said before. At no point under Rodgers would we have played like that. Happy days smile

Before last night I would have hoped Laudrup would play a second string team as I feel Britton et al need a breather....but I have to say the keep the winning mentality is much more important at the moment.

We are really starting to click and am pleased Mr Laudrup kept the momentum high.

It shows the strength of team unity that guys like Monk and Davies can come in and do a good job. What Monk lacks in pace he more than makes up for in reading the game.

Shame Tremmel didn't get the clean sheet he deserves, especially as their goal should never have stood - Taylor was practically sitting on Gerhard when he was on the floor having made the first save.

A great 3 points, and as Laudrup said, we are well placed to reach his minimum target of points for the 1st half of the season.

Bring on Liverpool and Brenda!

I thought at one point that Taylor was trying to get a piggy back from Tremmel. IMO opinion there should be a citing procedure for things like this, the goal would have to stand, but a retrospective yellow could be given. It's cheating just as diving is. The same official missed this and the Ba offside.

The MOTD highlights were woefully shocking. Schecter had a screamer go just over the bar that was completely ignored being one example.
