Rodgers: We're Getting Better All The Time

Brendan Rodgers says his team are getting better all the time as they look to stay 2nd this weekend as they visit Scunthorpe United.

The Swansea City manager believes his team are beginning to dictate how other teams play against us, and that is the 'ethos' he wants to create at the club.

Scunthorpe United may be down in 22nd place in the Championship table but they'll offer us a really tough test on Saturday as they're battling for every point to avoid relegation.

Rodgers said:

'I have said to the players that as we improve we will dictate how other teams play against us,'

'We will dictate how they play with our pressure and our possession.

'We did it last Saturday against Leeds, and not a lot of teams can do it because they haven't quite got that quality on the ball.

'We are getting better all the time both offensively and defensively and that's pleasing because it means we can dictate.

'That's the ethos I am trying to put in place at this club.'


Rodgers the opposition have more motivation when you're competing at the top:

'There's no doubt that when you are up near the top there's extra motivation for the opponents,'

'It will be part of the opposition manager's team talk can you show that you are better than the team in second place?

'But this is the position we want to be in and I am not overly concerned about what our opponents are thinking.

'We always respect the team we are playing, but it's really all about us.'


After 4 consecutive wins and impressive performances together with excellent character to achieve them, Rodgers now wants us to keep it going:

'Whatever happens, I have seen a great improvement this season,'

'You look at the team at the moment and there's a good feel to us.

'We have pace in the two full-back positions and two centre-backs who are solid defensively, are good organisers and are great on the ball.

'The midfield players have been fantastic. We have good intensity there and players who are intelligent and good with the ball.

'Our front players are scoring goals at the moment, so the challenge is to keep things going.'
