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

Liverpool Draw Gives Rodgers 'Great Pride'

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers said yesterday's 0-0 draw at Liverpool 'fills me with great pride'.

The Swans seem to have finally turned a corner away from home. They were desperate to end their run of consecutive defeats on the road. The 2-2 draw at Wolves should have been a win, but at least they got their first point on the road.

That was followed by another massive point won yesterday at Anfield. Not many people would have predicted a draw away at Liverpool considering our away form so far, but the performance was classy and impressive. You could even say at one point in the second half, the Swans looked like the home team.

Rodgers paid respect to the home fans yesterday for applauding the efforts of his side:

"I must pay must respect to the Liverpool supporters because not too many teams will get a round of applause off the home fans when they walk off here,"

"People can see the confidence and the belief in my players.

"We play our own game and it was a great demonstration of what we are about.

"It`s our aim going into the game, frustrate the opponent and the crowd by keeping the football.

"The Liverpool supporters know their football and how they want it to be played, credit must go to them for showing that bit of class at the end."


Rodgers added that the performance was fantastic:

"It was fantastic,"

"I felt that we were ready to come to a big team and put in a performance.

"The first games we have had away from home have been about finding out about the league and the quality of the big teams we are growing into it now.

"To come to Anfield and put in a performance like that at such a big club with great players fills me with great pride.

"We were a bit fortunate in the first half but coming to a place like this you need that bit of luck sometimes.

"But there was nothing lucky about the result. My players were fantastic and they deserve every plaudit they get.

"Collectively as a team they were outstanding. There is big pressure coming to a place like Anfield.

"I thought we made a big step forward with that performance. It will give us a big boost going forward."

Well done lads - you deserved the point in truth. Vorm was exceptional and at 1.5m must be one of the buys of the season? Click here to read the full Vital Liverpool match report of the game
