Just watching them on MOTD.
Looks like Silva has got them playing dirty like he did with hull last season.
Who's our ref for the game?

So, down to the last few hours with EPL window closing at 11pm today.
Looks like it could be our busiest yet. Personally I can't wait for the speculation to end and get on with the season with a fixed squad. I think we have enough to survive as is (barring a few key injuries), but the potential to do so much more if we get the next few hours right.

Am I right in thinking that PC has pretty much the entire squad available to him for training during the upcoming international break?
Edit: so it looks like the following are called up:

|Paul Clement on Roque Mesa|
at 12:47 13 Aug 2017
Roque Mesa was an unused substitute this weekend as the Swans kicked off the new season with a goalless draw at Southampton.
And Clement explained that he wants to give the 28-year-old, who arrived in an £11 million deal last month, the opportunity to come to terms with the challenges of English football.
“Roque Mesa is a really good player and he is going to be a good player for this team,”
“But it’s going to take him a little bit of time to adapt to the tempo of this league because he has been playing in La Liga.
“I have worked in La Liga and I know the difference. In La Liga you get time on the ball to play, especially in midfield.
“But over here it’s very different. You don’t get that time and space to play because of the tempo.
“Roque will get used to that, but it’s going to take him a bit of time.”
“If we get players in, it will be good if they have a bit of Premier League experience,”
Thankfully that kills the Viera link, but probably reinforces the Joey, Bony and Chadli deals once/if Siggy goes

Anyone else thinking that he's looked particularly error prone in pre-season? I see issues with positioning - especially when trying to close down through balls. Also Leon saved him from a clanger in the first half of yesterday's game.
Hoping this is just a sharpness problem that'll get ironed out as we get going,

Apologies if a Ferdy
Seems to confirm most people's votes that he'll likely be on his way...
Llorente, who finished the campaign with 15 Premier League goals, claims that he was called by Conte a few months ago but Swansea blocked the transfer.
‘We [Swansea] were in a delicate moment and it was logical that they would not let me leave,’ the striker told Cadena SER
But Llorente remains open to the possibility of joining the Premier League champions this summer.
‘I have a year of contract [remaining] and I am very happy. It is logical that offers could arrive but we will see,’ he said.
‘Let’s see what can happen in football. I hope things go well, if I stay or if I’m going.
‘I will never say no to a return to Spain.’

I'll just leave this here for the post-match avalanche. 30 mins in and he looks lost. What's the odds on a red card for him?

That is all.

Thought it would be fun to gather the mystic-meg views of a few brave souls on how this season is going to pan out.
- Premier Top 4 in order
- Relegated 3
- Swans Final Position
Swans to finish 8th

Holy sh1t - someone get this guy a wheelbarrow to push 'round his giant balls.
Currently on Star Sports bitching that referee decisions have been a key factor in their league position this year.
Someone strap him down and make him watch the game at the Liberty over and over again until he repents.

|Ayew vs Chelsea|
at 06:52 10 Apr 2016
I've not seen a thread on this, but thought I'd post.
Was seriously unimpressed with Ayew yesterday and was shouting at the TV for 10 minutes to sling him off for Routledge before the change was actually made. I'm hoping this is a match-fitness issue - but my gut feel is that he's just not suited to our style of play or the position we're asking him to play (having said that, I can't pin where I think his best position would be - at least for us...)
Things that bugged me:
- Frequently out of position
- Getting too close to our other players
- Was always looking for a solo option when he had the ball in final 3rd. Rarely made a simple pass.
- Tracking back was poor. There was a passage of play where he was jogging 10 yards away from Ivanovic who was bombing down the wing. Ayew seemed more worried about pointing towards Fabregas than tracking their LB.
Would be good to see how FG uses him over the last few games - hopefully today was a match fitness issue.
