  1. Alex Sandro

    One match in the CL and amazing how people formulate such opinions on someone who continually has some of the best full back stats in Europe, who's club rejected £60m for and fans who watch him every week rate highly. 'Alonso is better than him' come on. If we think Sandro is bad based on one match 80% of Alonso's matches this season are of a worse standard than what Sandro produced yesterday. Sandro was disappointing going forward but v. strong defensively. Average overall but I guess Juve's whole side is average then if we base it on one game. People wonder why the club aren't moving forward because we sign average players over top players that improve our first XI. Then pretend top players who would improve our first XI are suddenly not worth it. Have some ambition. Read good things on Emerson but would much rather we got Sandro/Telles.
  2. Jay Dasilva

    Yep, wasn't a fan of him going back to league 1. All well and good him doing well but..if we're serious about his ceiling being a part of this squad he has a hell of a long way to go, and he's already 20, turning 21 this year I believe ?
  3. Mason Mount

    ..and another goal tonight, 4 goals in 6 appearances for him.
  4. 70. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    I didn't realise he's quite so tall. Already looks more filled out and robust than say Musonda.
  5. Mason Mount

    Up for Erividsie POTM
  6. Nathan Aké

    Having a good match against us so far
  7. 33. Emerson Palmieri

    MY lwb
  8. Jeremie Boga

    Admits rumours of Palmer joining him at Birmingham, another goal for him tonight.
  9. Charly Musonda Jr.

    Good post, although I don't believe Musonda 'knows' Rodgers? Musonda arrived 5 years ago at which point Rodgers was at Swansea
  10. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I think there's weight behind the semi serious theory of playing Alonso as a striker. Critically evaluating him, what's he actually good at. Shooting, getting into goalscoring positions, he's ok aerially, and obviously free kicks. Nearly all traditional aspects of a wingback you want Alonso doesn't have. He can't dribble, he's slow, his crossing is poor, he doesn't progress play, he's shit in one on one duels defensively. I think you'd see a greater impact from Alonso in open play if he was more central hovering about the box in a CF position. He already does that when we're struggling for goals.
  11. Tammy Abraham

    His record has been poor after a good start but he's still Swansea's leading scorer, which says a lot. I think it's fair to say he may not be ready for us right now (I still think we could do worse than using him as a 'target man' squad option and watching him improve), but he's young, first season in PL, he's already doing better in terms of development than a lot of our youngsters. Maybe needs another loan next season. Haven't seen it on here but annoys me on twitter when people write him off. EDIT: it's also only Jan and a lot f season left. Not beyond realms of possibility he has another run of form and ends the season with double figure goals.
  12. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Have to say I miss the likability factor Alonso seems to have with others, due to his well known past mistakes. Moses on other hand, with his story, for me makes him a bit likable. Slightly ironic because I'd say other supporters are less endeared to him.
  13. Charly Musonda Jr.

    He's 21, margins I know but still
  14. 3. Marcos Alonso

    Don't watch them for 90 minutes a game like we do. Especially with Alonso who it is easy to rate if you just watch MOTD.
  15. Alex Sandro

    I often read very mixed reviews on Kurzawa from people who watch him
