'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dyer: We're a More All-Round Team

Nathan Dyer believes Swansea City are a more all-round team compared to last year's one under Paulo Sousa.

Brendan Rodgers has given us a much more attacking edge and quality to our play since taking over last July, but our strong defence hasn't been compromised, as we've still kept 17 clean sheets so far this season.

Dyer has said before that he wasn't given so much freedom to attack and run at players down the wing under Paulo Sousa, with more emphasis being on the defence. But he's been able to express himself more this year under the new gaffer:

'We were amazing on Saturday,'

'We fought for everything and got the goals, a clean sheet and a deserved three points. We couldn't have asked for more.

'People can see that we are a good footballing side we play football the right way and when you do that it's easy for you to play to your strengths.

'It allows me to express myself. I can get up the pitch and run at defenders and try to cause problems.

'That's what I love doing. I have the licence to do that this season.

'There are three of us up front and the gaffer has taken the shackles off us.

'Last season it was more defensive under Paulo and he was very technical.

'But I think this season we are more of an all-round team we can do a bit of everything.'


Swansea City's excellent 3-0 win at home to Leeds United puts us in 2nd place now and we'll be looking to stay there this weekend when we travel to Scunthorpe United.

'We expect it to be a real battle on Saturday,'

'It will be very different from the Leeds game as Scunthorpe are down there fighting for every point.

'We will have to approach it slightly differently, but we've already had to do that this season.

'Against Coventry we had to battle and show that we can stand up to physical teams on a surface that's not the best, but still play our own football.

'That's why we are second in the table. You have to be like that if you want to go up.

'The best teams in the world have the quality around the squad, but you need that nitty gritty to go that extra mile.'
