Dyer: 'I See Us Going Up And Up'

Dyer: 'I See Us Going Up And Up'

Nathan Dyer is predicting good times ahead for Swansea City under new manager Paulo Sousa.

The former Southampton right winger says that Paulo Sousa and his team are proving the doubters wrong and we're going from strength to strength.

Following the departure of Roberto Martinez in the Summer, along with the entire backroom staff and Jordi Gomez and Jason Scotland, the bookmakers, pundits and opposition fans completely wrote off our chances of another good season in the Championship this year.

Many thought that we'd struggle without our two highest goalscorers from last season, and we'd miss the spark that Martinez gave us during his 2-year spell at the Liberty Stadium.

Sousa didn't prove his doubters wrong to start with, having just won one game in the first 6, but slowly the Portuguese has proved himself by getting us up into 11th place. He's done wonders with the defence, making us a much more solid outfit but he's maintained our sleak passing style of playing.

Dyer said:

'People expected us to struggle last season and then said the same this time around,'

'A couple of people have left, but we've brought in a quality manager and quality players.

'I don't understand what goes through some people's heads.


Nathan Dyer's early headed goal on Saturday gave us the lead against Cardiff City and we eventually came out worthy winners in a 3-2 thriller at the Liberty Stadium.

'People should have more respect towards us.

'We were praised last season, but then when (Roberto) Martinez went we were told that would be the end of us.

'But we are getting stronger and stronger.

'A lot of people wrote us off at the start, but we're 10 unbeaten and moving in the right direction.

'It's time that people started to stand up and say Swansea City are the real deal and they'll be up there.

'I see us going up and up. It's early days, but we have a strong squad and we are doing the right things.

'But people have got to accept us as play-off contenders. We are better than the majority of the teams in this division and we feel we can get to the play-offs.

'That has to be our minimum target now, because we have the quality in staff and players to achieve it.'
