Bothroyd Spices Things Up Ahead Of Derby

Bothroyd Spices Things Up Ahead Of Derby

Jay Bothroyd has spiced things up a bit ahead of Saturday's derby match at home to Cardiff City.

Despite being born around 200 miles away in London, the big-mouth striker speaks like a Bluebird fan and rubbishes our chances of beating Cardiff City at the weekend.

Bothroyd told Wales Online that Swansea City are not the team they were last season after the departures of Roberto Martinez, Jason Scotland and Jordi Gomez. Maybe someone should tell him that we're a point better off than last year, and our defence has vastly improved.

After losing our manager and last season's top 2 goalscorers, Bothroyd believes Saturday's game will be a lot different to last year's - Swansea City went 3 matches unbeaten against our bitter rivals.

“Who’s in form? Swansea, really? I don’t know about that.

“Where are they in the league? Where are we in the league? Well...”

“To be honest, since the changes at Swansea, they’re not the side they were.

“They’ve lost their goalscorer Jason Scotland, they lost Jordi Gomez and they lost their manager – which I think is a massive factor and is showing it by him doing really well in the Premier League at Wigan.

“I don’t think they’re the side they were and it will be a totally different game than last year – we’re looking to go there and beat them.”


Hopefully we'll make him look like a bit of an idiot with those comments on Saturday!
