Vorm 'Busiest Match Of My Life'

Vorm 'Busiest Match Of My Life'

Michel Vorm has had time to reflect on his and Swansea City's debut in the Premier League and thinks the Swans will win matches.

The Dutch keeper had an outstanding debut against title challengers Manchester City, making 11 saves - which is more than any goalkeeper made in a Premier League game last season.

He couldn't be faulted for the scoreline in anyway but, believes that Swansea City's first half display stands the team in good stead for the rest of the season:

'We played very well in the first half, but they have such quality players and change quality player for quality player.

'Aguero made the difference for them. There is a new star born in the Premier League.

'But if we play against Wigan on Saturday the way we did in the first half, we will win matches.

'Wigan have quality, but not the type Manchester City do.'

'It was the busiest match in my life,'


Brendan Rodgers' desire to get in more defensive cover should step-up now, with no defensive options on the bench in last nights game, Swansea looked fragile in the shadows of such a potent attack.

Have to say it looks like you've got a real class act in goal there. Some amazing saves. Hope he keeps it up cause a keeper like that is worth a good few points come the end of the season! Good luck!

Not often a keeper can ship 4 goals and still come away with the Man of the match award, but some of the saves the guy made were world class. Steklenberg had better watch out.
