Better when Boufal arrived, Redmond needs a rest for a month or two.

Good job we rested the first team on Saturday in preparation for this game...

Did Classie play tonight? No I know he was in the team but did he play?

Will we have to pay for the satellite that Davis damaged?

Puels master plan worked well tonight then. After Saturdays abysmal performance with the Kids now its just as bad with the first team. Just as well played the first team against Arsenal because the rest done them no good. Are defence tonight was rubbish. Andy Carroll will have a field day against our 2 centre halves on Saturday. Need to buy one tonight.

Frustrating again - Swansea never touched it for the first 15 mins, then we sat back and let them come on to us. It seemed Tadic got a knock early on and after that our attacks were focused with Redmond on the !eft - which perhaps explains a lot !!
Not sure if it was a pen to them for the handball, but couldn't really tell from my seat. Long seemed to get kicked and hacked a lot, but got nothing as usual.
Fraser kept us in it in the first half with a few good saves, but the headed (perhaps from Davis?) clearance that led to the save for the corner that led to the first goal was piss poor.
At least changes were made - and good changes at that. Boufal did more running and created more than Redmond and Tadic combined. Bizarrely and comically Redmond had a shot from in the box, that went for a throw on. It had so much slice on it, it probably finished behind him - then blamed Boufal for a poor lay off !!! WAC
After we drew level with a really well worked goal, i thought we would go on to win it, but embarrassingly poor work from our own corner gifted them a break away and ultimately a goal that was so, so avoidable - and FF should have saved.
After that, to be fair, we pretty much beseiged their goal, but could convert anything and the likes of Sims, Boufal, McQueen and Davis need to learn when to shoot or lay it off. When the shot is the best option, too often we pass instead and nobody wants to take on that responsibility.

Oh - funny that the biggest bloke on the pitch(Lorente) is the dirtiest shirt pulling diving cheat that gets all the decisions, yet Long gets kicked and tripped all over the park and gets nothing. It is not La Liga FFS.

Then to sum the evening up, the M4 was closed for a section on the way back, meaning a lovely detour round a semi-foggy Newport !! Still, was nice to head back for some of the way with a car with SFC on it's number plate :-)

TimSaint is pretty spot on. Dull with saints in control for first 15mins then Swansea had the game for 30 mins in the first half and won it with a breakaway from a corner finished well by sigurdsson in the 2nd. Even the corner they scored from was heading straight at forster until OR thundered it in!

Our full backs played well, but tadic was awful, totally static and when he had the ball very slow to make a decision. Redmond barely better...summed up by when some boufal magic laid it on a plate for him and he sliced it for a throw in..I didn't see him blame boufal as I had turned around with my head in my hands!

Boufal was brilliant, created so much, should have had a pen and swansea couldn't get the ball off him, even when they double teamed him. One thunderous tackle from OR was like a firework going off!

Why did Puel have to wait until 60 to take Tadic off?...that was obvious at half time. Simms for redmond earlier would have been good and clasie was anonymous whilst McQueen threw himself about.

All in all, first half was poor, but 2nd was a good game with Saints pressing and we found our voice. I don't begrudge Swansea the 3 points if it means they stay up.

Dusan doesn't seem to like mid week away games. Overall we should have had at least a point in this game. finishing again pretty average one mistake and one unfortunate first goal against as i like the fact romeo tried to track his man better than he has been doing and the defensive pressure giving the forwards to much time to play on that break on the second = two goals for 3o mins first half we went to sleep second half all over them . but then teams know how to park the bus against us still thought it was a good game and performance by us especially second half. welcome back Boufal and hello Manolo give them time to jel
