Swansea City: Season So Far



We have had some stand out performances both individually and the team as a whole. Martinez has got us playing a kind of football that is both easy on the eye and also effective.

This has been achieved by Martinez switching to a more effective 4-5-1 formation at home which has seen our wide men getting forward more and supporting the striker. Bodde, Pratley and Britton have been instrumental in the centre of the park, switching play and also making runs forward.

Dorus De Vries has been a welcome change at the back and also Rangel, Monk and Painter making sure that our defence is not often breached! Our weakest link in the whole team seems to be Lawrence as he is too often caught making mistakes.

We are out of the FAW Premier Cup, The League Cup and also the FA Cup but we do have a realistic chance of going to Wembley for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

As a result of our good form, Martinez has won the manager of the month award twice and Jason Scotland has won the player of the month. A number of our players, including Rangel, Scotland, Bodde, De Vries, Pratley and Robbo, have attracted attention from the Championship as well as from our old manager Kenny Jackett.

Martinez has also been linked with two manager positions in the Premier League (Wigan and Newcastle) as well as the vacant managers position at Real Sociedad, after Chris Coleman resigned.

I am happy with the way the season has gone so far and with memorable wins against Leyton Orient away, Cheltenham at home and also Leeds at the Liberty this season is definitely going to be one to remember, all that remains is for the Swans to make it to the Championship.

THIS IS OUR SEASON!!!!!!
