Butler Talks To The Swan

Butler Talks To The Swan

In an interview with the matchday programme, The Swan, Tom Butler says it will be 'crime' if Swansea don't get promotion this year.

'With the players we have in our squad, if we don't get promotion then it will be a crime,''

'To be honest, I think the Championship will suit us better. League One is the hardest League in the country to get out of - it's a nightmare division. It's scrappy and you don't know what type of team you are playing from one week to the next. One week you play a passing team and the next it's a team who launches the ball and squeezes the game.

'It's even worst for us at the Liberty Stadium because so many clubs come here with a negative attitude and no ambition. They come looking for the draw and it's hard to break them down.''


After limited first team opportunities under Kenny Jackett, Butler seems to be having a successful run in the side of late under our new boss.

I was particularly impressed with his man of the match performance in the 2-1 home win against Northampton.

He heaped praise on Roberto Martinez and said: 'The Gaffer does a lot of pre-match preparation work on the opposition,''

'He identifies their weaknesses right from the start and we work towards exploiting them in training.

'He's very thorough, he does his homework and the training has been fantastic. We are doing a lot of technique and sharpness work and I think it has paid off.''

What he really means is I'll be off if Swansea don't get promoted.

he says nothing to suggest that. He definately won't be going if we're still in league one.

If Butler stays it will be the longest he's stayed for a team since he left Sunderland. Since 2004 he's played for 4 clubs, leaving the last two for personal reasons. Maybe he's settling down.
