Sinclair: I Want To Play Every Game

Sinclair: I Want To Play Every Game

Scott Sinclair says he's raring to go and wants to play in every game after scoring his first goal for the club in our 3-1 Carling Cup win at Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday.

The former Chelsea winger came on as a second-half substitute along with Stephen Dobbie and they inspired a comeback after going 1-0 down in the first half. After Van Der Gun netted the equaliser, Sinclair scored a superb goal moments later after racing onto Kuqi's flick-on header.

The 21 year-old says he's not thinking about getting rest while the Swans continue their Cup run, and wants to be involved in every match this season. He told the Wales Online:

"I`m looking to play every game - whether I start or if I come on, I`m raring to go," said Sinclair, enjoying a new lease of life at Swansea after finally putting down some roots on the back of several loan spells around the country.

"I want to play as many minutes as I can. I suppose you saw that when I came on, I couldn`t wait to get the ball and play."

"It was a great feeling getting the goal,"

"The main priority was to get the win, but I was delighted to get the goal and start building on that.

"It`s been frustrating because I`ve had a couple of chances to score in other games and I haven`t put them away.

"But it`s early season and if I keep progressing and working hard then I`ll be looking to score goals.

"I haven`t really set a target - I just want to score as many as I can and bring goals to the team - but, as I`ve said, the main priority is winning games."


Brendan Rodgers praised Sinclair's performance:

"I would think Scott is going to be very popular with the fans and that`s why I brought him here.

"He`s a boy I know well, you can just see the penetration he gives us and is so important for us.

"We`ve been wonderful with the ball, so we`ve just got to make sure we get penetration and get behind teams as well as play in front of them.

"Scotty gives us that. He scored one at Tranmere, he maybe could have had a couple more and his movement was fantastic.

"I always had it in my mind, and on my notes, that between 65 and 75 minutes I wanted that injection of pace into the game to get the intensity up, no matter how the game was going."


Sinclair's goal put us 2-1 in front on Tuesday night before Kuqi added a late third in injury time which puts us in the hat for the third round.

He added that he hasn't really thought about the possibility of drawing his former club Chelsea in the 3rd round:

"If we get Chelsea, we get Chelsea - but I haven`t thought about it too much.

"I`m just looking forward to the league games and playing every game I can.

"Every game is a tough game and Burnley on Saturday will be no different.

"The gaffer told us that it would be great to win these two games before the international break and we`ve won the first one.

"Now we`ll look to the Burnley game and hopefully carry it on. I`m sure that if we start the way we played the second half at Tranmere then I`m sure we`ll do well. I`ve been out on loan to quite a few clubs, but Swansea`s one of the best passing teams I`ve played with, and I`m just happy to be playing with these boys."

A great goal at Tranmere, used his pace well and showed good composure to finish with his weaker left foot. He'll only improve and so far he's been a superb signing.

Did he say 'I want to score in every game'? Well done, Scotty! :-)
