Their 3rd goal is why it wasn't the right call to make the change.
Potter will know this is a mistake on his part but if he favours Nordvelt we've got to trust his judgement.
Please don't just get on his back, why would any Swans fan want to do that?
I heard groans at Naughton because of one misplaced pass when otherwise he was superb again.
The football is a pleasure to watch, why can't we all enjoy the mini revolution unfolding in front of our eyes. I do think we were a little complacent yesterday though and scoring the early goal reinforced that feeling for the players.
We went all out second half but we were always chasing the game and never properly in control of the situation.
They were pretty decent if you ask me, certainly the most clinical team down there this season. I think they can pick up the odd result against what hopefully will be our rivals further up the league.
The progress continues, just a gutting result. We can win in Villa though.
Routs, Dyer, Bony not even in the match day squad. Ok Bony is injured but the other 2 are fit and available,
We've literally got cover coming out of our arse including 2 No. 1 keepers.
Carter Vickers not had a single minute in 2 games, Like I said, who would drop Rodon now? Lisa Trust has gone into hiding with her cheap shots and only a tiny minority mentioning a centre back problem.
This is as close to Total football as you'll ever witness as a Swansea fan.
It's a real shame a good percentage of you can't enjoy it because you've made mugs of yourselves.
What an insult to Graham Potter who had a full pre-season with our FULL squad.
As mentioned in another thread that was ridiculed, we've got players (and a manager) who are able and willing to play in multiple positions, and do it all with aplomb.
Who would drop Rodon now? Naughton, where's his best position in this league? Superb in right back, centre mid?!! Matty - left back or the most developed centre mid we've seen so far this season. McBurnie - centre forward or midfield? Whichever, he's our linchpin at the moment. Established EPL players left out but ready and able to come in.
I think we need to look back on this question after the next 9 or 10 games.
We've got off to a strong, steady start, we're very composed at the back and our un-fashionable players are really staking a claim for their positions.
The last 2 away games we should have had 2 points and they are going to be up there among the hardest away games we'll have all season. They're out the way now and we've got some clearer roads ahead - at least on paper.
I think this run of games coming up is where we should really put all the good things we've taken from the first set of games and really put the pedal to the metal and get at teams high up the pitch - especially our home games.
Dyer and Routs are off the mark and have some much needed minutes under their belt and at home against the weaker teams they could really hurt them. Hopefully we'll see some calm in the ranks in terms of injuries and a run of games with an XI that we can start to describe as our best one.
I think we can go 442 or 4411 in this league, especially at home
And this is being really harsh on Naughton not picking him but on the other hand would make our bench really strong and with great options. No doubt Potter would rotate our forward 4 or 5 and this will bring great versatility. Every one can do a job for us on their day. I'm hoping there's some good days ahead.
Throw Bony into the mix and I think we're well on our way to a promotion challenging squad, especially if Potter identifies some targets in January and we get them. (let's not hijack debate with that one comment though, eh!?)
Nordvelt Declan John Carter-Vickers Naughton Fulton Carroll Byers Asoro Mckay Yan Dhanda Dan James
If most are honest i'm sure you'll agree our squad is a pretty good one all in all and going in the right direction. There's a lot to like with the players listed above.
