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

Rodgers Looks To Add A Plan B For Next Season

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he wants to add a 'second system' to his team next season, to give opposition sides 'something to think about'.

There's been a lot of discussion on the Forum recently about the need for a 'plan b', saying we're too predictable and teams are beginning to know how to play against us and beat us. Some supporters supported these claims by referring to the increased amount of home games we've lost recently, against Norwich City, Everton and Newcastle United.

While Rodgers has been linked heavily with the possible vacancy at Tottenham Hotspur in the Summer, the Irishman is not only thinking about buying three of four players for the Swans in the Summer, but also a change or additional 'system' for his side to adopt.

Rodgers says we won't change the style - our passing game, but tactics to become somewhat less predictable.

'Next year I feel that we need to have a second system to give our opponents something to think about while allowing us to continue with our game,'

'It's something that's in the plan for next year, and it's certainly a possibility before the end of the season because it's something I feel we need. We have made tactical tweaks this season.

''To the untrained eye on the outside it might look like we're passing and moving and it's just the same. There have been tactical adjustments in a lot of games, but now maybe we will look at a different system.

'The ethos of the team will still be the same we will look to control and dominate games with the ball.

'But while the style will stay the same, the system can change.'


Rodgers also says he may give some of the second-string players a chance to impress in the final four games, as his side have guaranteed they'll avoid relegation.

'I may well look at one or two other players,'

'Making changes is something to consider but, whatever team I put out, the players know the structure and they can go in and perform.'
