Nathan Dyer has explained some of the things Paulo Sousa has changed in Swansea City's attacking game.
When Roberto Martinez was here, the team played a patient passing game that sometimes saw us score some fantastic goals, but later on it became frustrating as all too often we tried to 'walk the ball in'.
With Paulo Sousa now taking over as manager, we could see a more direct, and hopefully more effective attacking style as Dyer explained to the Evening Post that the gaffer is looking for more players in the box as well as more crosses coming in from the wings.
One thing that was frustrating last season was the lack of players in the penalty area when we were attacking. Often it would only be Scotland in the box, outnumbered against a defensive opposition.
'He wants a minimum of four people in the box,'
'He wants more crosses going into the box whereas last season it was more about cut-backs along the ground. He wants more urgency when we attack.
'He wants everyone to bust a gut to get into the box and he wants more chances, which is a good thing.'
'We are still going to play passing football which stems from Roberto,'
'The new gaffer is carrying that on because that's the way he likes to play, but there are changes he has brought in.
'He is adding his own little things to what is already here. It's not a lot, but it goes a long way.'
Nathan Dyer has impressed during the Summer and his pace and trickery has caused the opposition a lot of problems in the pre-season friendlies.
The former Saints winger couldn't hide his delight when he made his loan move permanent 2 months ago. He was excited to be playing under Roberto Martinez at the time, but he says a change of manager hasn't bothered him.
'It's nice to have my future sorted, and I'm looking forward to the start of the season now.
'We are in the swing of things after working throughout pre-season. We know what the gaffer wants us to do.'
