So we put Brum to bed and concentrate on Arsenal tomorrow, still pinch myself to think we are regularly playing these other top prem sides. Should be hard fought but interesting game, we know we need to stop wasting chances or we won't succeed against the better sides. Let's hope the players take heed and are more clinical than we have been of late as we face a very decent side who will take some beating.

By the way can I just put out a call to anyone who would like to travel to St Gallen in December but perhaps doesn't like flying. Ugo is considering taking a coach to the game leaving Swansea early on the Wednesday morning (11th December) staying two nights in Switzerland and travelling back on the Friday (13th Dec) arriving home late that night. The cost is approx £345 which isn't bad considering it is all inclusive so if anyone is interested please can you let him know by email swanstravelclub@aol.com by Monday 30th September for him to judge if there is enough interest.

Zander Diamond (Burton Albion)
Williams' injury is a worry,and the club is his bread and butter,and has to come before country. He should be rested for our next two meaningless internationals in the two week break,second and third week of October.Last time he played in a friendly,Coleman played him the full game whilst subbing and resting other players,not on,when he was carrying an injury.Put your foot down ML!
Our not taking goal chances is a concern,the players are well aware,but the more they worry about it the more nervous they'll become,so just relax and plenty of shot practice in training. Look at the Man Utd game recently,four chances,four goals,we lost 4-1.
Arsenal will be very tough,but we've shown before that we can beat them,so I'm optimistic that we can get something today.

Amat (Jordi)

News on Williams isn't that good apparently he has ligament damage to his ankle so could miss our next two games, as you say I hope he tells Coleman that he is not available for Wales as he could do with the extra time to fully recover. Rangel also had ankle problems yesterday but hopefully he will be back next Sunday, we certainly missed his skills yesterday and Tiendali can't be compared to him in an attacking sense.

With St Gallen and Southampton to come in the week ahead I hope that ML has a plan to utililise his squad in the correct way, not happy Leon is being used mostly for cup games as to me he is still an important team player. I like Canas but there are times when Leon is more suited to play and I think Sunday at St Mary's would be the right time to play him as he keeps us ticking over and makes some vital interceptions.

Ki has gone blonde,and what a shot he's got,why didn't he show that for us,and why did we let him go,we needed him against Arsenal.
Williams may not be back until after the International break,and Monk is injured,so we have just the two centre backs who played on Saturday.
Western (Cardiff) Mail sports headlines on News Now (never read their diatribe myself) full of Ramsey - "Majestic Ramsey stakes claim to greatness" " Ramsey star man as Arsenal saw off Swansea" "Ex-Cardiff City ace admits his goal was special". The Cardiff based journos are ecstatic with their praise because he was an ex bluebird.

Refuse to read the Western Mail or any of the other Cardiff based newspapers, let them have their moment but we will see what they have to say come the end of the season.

Saw parts of the Sunderland game, Ki was ok but that shot that led to the goal was not hit that hard but got a deflection which fooled the keeper. He's not as good as he thinks he is and personally am not sorry he is gone, maybe the fact that ML was prepared to let him go speaks volumes about his attitude and commitment. I'd much rather an exciting prospect like Pozuelo who creates chances with his skill, he still has much to learn with decision making not always correct but he always gives 100% and will improve under our current management.

Ki in his Celtic days was an attacking midfielder,and used to take their free kicks and corners,and scored some cracking goals for them. He has been played out of position with us,and so we haven't seen the best of him. HJ reiterated the other day that Ki is coming back after his loan. If not,I hope we can recover our huge outlay.
He's back in favour and has been picked again for S,Korea's next friendly,after a bust up with the manager,and it's a big boost for him and us,as it's in our best interests that he does well on the international stage.Besides that,he's got a massive following from his country,which was of huge benefit to us.I'm sure the reason why the Korean sponsorship deal broke down was that they found out that Ki was unsettled.

Emnes (Marvin)

Paying over £5 million for a player and then letting him go out on loan is a very unusual occurence for a club like ours which has a limited budget. I therefore think there was more to this than meets the eye with problems behind the scenes we are unaware of. Funnily enough maybe Ki's brush with Di Canio made him realise that working under ML was not that bad after all so depending on who comes in at Sunderland we may get a more committed player back at the Liberty in the New Year. As for the Korean fans they are not Swans fans just followers of their player and although they are a good source of income while Ki is around are not to be relied upon beyond that.

A load of trouble posting this morning,I couldn't even open this post the last hour or so,just frozen.
I suppose you could say that about a lot of fans,who are just following their countrymen,and it even applies to our manager. If Ki doesn't want to come back and we can just recover our outlay,then that's fine.
St Gallen next,they are virtually unknown,the same as the Russians. I expect ML knows all about them by now,and will be preparing our tactics as we speak.
Picking the sides for both games will be tough,we only have two fit centre backs,captain and club captain both out injured. Pablo is in contention again,after a month out injured,but do we save him for Sunday,or give him a subs role to prove his fitness.

Taken a while this afternoon to be able to post on here, will check with Kev to see if there has been any more response from those who run the site.

Forecast for tomorrow weatherwise is very bad with torrential rain so might affect the attendance even deterring some of those freebies with the match screened live anyway. The hardy ones amongst us would attend no matter what and there have been some games that I remember struggling to get to, we played Ipswich away on a freezing day when the bus was leaving at the crack of dawn. With the game being televised live anyway on sky not that many of us were going and the game itself looked in doubt because of snow everywhere but it did go ahead and we won that day which was a bonus. Of course the Chelsea second leg semi final cup game last season at the Liberty was another that would probably not have been played had the game not been live on tv, most of us struggled to get to the stadium but again the fact we got through to Wembley made it all worthwhile.

I can't help thinking that we've given up the easiest passage into Europe next season by fielding a weakened team in the Capital 1 Cup,but of course the league comes first.
They should let the kids in free tonight,why have empty seats,I'm sure the paying customers wouldn't object.
Windy and dull here,just waiting for the bad weather to arrive. Lat time it was windy at the Liberty,my umbrella blew inside out and I had to throw it.
