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

Swansea City Boss Unhappy With Attitude In Cup

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers said the player's attitude 'wasn't right' after last night's shocking Carling Cup defeat at Shrewsbury Town.

A Swans player has still yet to score in three matches this season, as we took the lead last night in 2nd round tie thanks to an early own goal.

Brendan Rodgers cut a rare angry figure after the performance and 3-1 result last night, saying it was his 'most disappointing night in football'.

Rodgers said:

"A few of them have put their hands up to say don`t pick me,"

"Some of them will get on the bus and think it is a game less. I don`t think like that. I want to win every game.

"Whether or not the game wasn`t big enough for some players, I don`t know.

"But we had the top scorer from the Championship last season, international players, experience. We were good enough.

"I said before the game that a team would be knocked out, a big team, and they would be knocked out because their attitude wasn`t right. Ours wasn`t right."


Rodgers said before the game that he wanted to take the Carling Cup seriously and wanted to 'win every game', but despite naming a side good enough to beat a basement League side, his side fell well short, showing a complete lack of commitment and quality.

"It is my most disappointing night in football,"

"We are not good enough to turn up anywhere and win a game at 70%.

"You need the right mindset to do the ugly bits of football.

"I have told the players to make sure they remember the Manchester City game, when they made their Premier League debuts, make sure they remember how well they played against Wigan.

"But don`t forget to tell their grandchildren that they played against Shrewsbury and lost. That is the reality. It shouldn`t happen."
