We're off the mark and Clement makes a statement to Americans 17:07 - Aug 12 with 5124 viewsTheResurrection

Plenty of questions still to be answered and the performance level would have been totally different had we been home.

Huge positive in our defensive shape when we need to dig in and for all Southampton's chances, really speaking, very few were particularly threatening.

Also I think Clement's subs were a statement to the Board. Fulton, Bartley and McBurnie just shows the lack of activity. Also, we've got to be majorly worried about Mesa at this stage. Personally I fear for his character more than his ability, he seems too confident and a bit of a hot head.

But all in all a decent platform to build on - but it's got to be done and quick.

I thought it was more poor finishing from Southampton than fine defensive shape, but that's my opinion. To get away there with a point was very lucky, but a point all the same. Wouldn't you agree we missed an out let like Llorente in that game today? Someone to hold up the ball and bring the midfield in.

Something Llorente is notoriously poor at?

So no.

I agree we didn't get on the ball as much as i'd have liked and pull them around a bit and yeah, Tammy's hold up play was below par, but Llorente or Siggy in there today would have made us pretty much exactly the same.

We need to bring new players in. WTF are they waiting for. It's an absolute piss take and the Trust are once again slow as fack to get involved.

I've text Sumbler about this but there's no time to waste now.

Agree with most of that, but think you might be being bit hasty on Mesa. Think Clement wanted Fulton's height as much as anything. Think Clement is playing it clever too. Make him earn his spot and hopefully he'll be in soon.

Overall, I think there were a lot of positives. Fede and Mawson did great and we defended the set pieces really well. We struggled at times with the midfield not really clicking in the final third, but I still with a couple of new signings we'll be OK.

Just like last season we gave the ball away too much, both under pressure and in free play.

I believe that's the concern. We brought on Fulton instead of him.

The issue though was as much that Leon can't now last 90 minutes. To be frank, I thought the game got the better of him today. Not his fault. He shouldn't be starting at this point in his career.

But Mesa was obviously not deemed ready, certainly not in that defensive midfield anchor position.

Hopefully it's just a matter of getting up to speed. If not, that's an issue, as it means we need another defensive midfielder as well as some creativity further forward.

I don't think Clement would have hesitated to play him if he was on track. Something is amiss with Mesa, that's as clear as day, unfortunately,

I think Clement went with Fulton for Britts rather than Messa because Southampton were lumping the ball into our box last 20 minutes, same reason he took Abraham's off for Bartley

Indeed. Careful though you'll be deemed as being thick for not having the same opinion as someone on here.

Clement made several statements that he's very happy with the squad.

""Although I cannot promise or predict the future, I can guarantee one thing - the current board of directors will always fight, as we have done over the last 12 years, to work together as one with the Supporters Trust to make 100% sure that Swansea City football club remains the number one priority in all our thoughts and in every decision we make."

Ah, but I'm sure Res carefully analysed the angle of Mesa's tash when he saw Fulton replace Britton.

It surely had a disrespectful gait, ergo the guy is a hot head and we should write him off.

Lucky we found out before he kicked a ball in anger

Clement talking on Radio Wales - Not happy with our performance at all. Basically we got lucky in his opinion.
He's looking for a vast improvement.

We've had a glimpse of the movement we're looking to play with.

But have you forgotten?

Siggy and Llorente are still here!!

Sorry I hit a nerve. Would've thought you had thicker skin considering how deep you've been digging yourself over the last 6 months.

As for you, not sure what impresses me the most: your persistence in pursing lost cause opinions; or your lack awareness of your credibility level on here.

Think Mesa could've came in for Leon instead of Fulton, but because we were chasing a point, PC went reliability over someone who hasn't played a PL minute.

Don't think it has anything to do with his character
