Swansea City midfielder Ferrie Bodde has been in a rich vain of goal scoring form over the early part of the season and is adamant that teams will fear Swansea's free flowing brand of football.
Bodde who is the clubs joint top goal scorer was in upbeat mood about his goal tally so far this season but has sacrificed self interest to ensure that Roberto Martinez's side can reach their lofty ambitions of a place in the premier leauge. This has not stopped the Delft born midfielder from filling his boots this season with five already to his name and continuing his good form from last season who would bet against the influential Dutchman from going into double figures this season?
After going behind in the first half against Ipswich courtesy of a goal from Spanish striker Pablo Couñago but an early rally in the second half saw the Swans get ahead after goals from Bodde and Jordi Gomez only to be denied once more by the tricky Couñago. Looking back at the game Bodde has admitted that Swansea were uncharacteristically shy in front of an intimidating Portman Road crowd and that the Liberty Stadium club deserved to come away from Suffolk with all three points.
Bodde Told The Swep:
|''In the Championship there are opportunities for midfielders to come into the eight-yard box and get a goal.It is always important for midfielders to help out scoring and I am very happy with my five goals because it took me 11 league games to get my first goal against Bournemouth. Five goals in 10 league games looks great, but I don't concentrate on it too much. I'd rather be top of the league having scored no goals than where we are having scored five.'|
'When I was at Den Haag I didn't get many opportunities to score because we battled against relegation. It is always nice to score, but for me it doesn't matter who it is. So long as we are winning, it could be Jason (Scotland), Jordi, (Tom) Butler or (Mark) Gower scoring — I don't mind.It looks like we were too shy in the first half but we know what our qualities are and we showed that in the second half.'
'We moved the ball quickly and that was a joy to watch for everyone who saw the game.To concede in the last few minutes was very disappointing, but I think people will be scared when we come to their ground.We don't want to put too much pressure on ourselves but we know what we can do.I think we deserved to win overall.'.'
