Looking To Continue WInning Ways

The one thing that the Championship has taught us over the years is that the games always come thick and fast and the dust has barely settled on the Swans superb 3-0 win over QPR on Saturday as we head to Wigan tonight for the win that should lift us into the division's top six.
Saturday was a refreshing way to watch football particularly around the 35 pass move that led to the third goal but the truth was that goal just summed up a performance where we completed 651 of the 746 passes that we attempted around our 64% possession.

It was that kind of style that bought the Swans so many plaudits during our rise to the Premier League and it is a style that Graham Potter is bringing back to the club but he is doing it with a mixture of youth products and some more experienced heads and one of the division's youngest squads.
Three goals on Saturday could easily have been double that and with confidence and team spirit at an obvious high then we head into the North West with every chance of the win that will lift us further up the table.
Of course, it won't be easy as Wigan are only separated from us on goal difference and have taken 13 from 15 points available to them at home with only Nottingham Forest managing to leave the DW with any points.
Key striker Will Grigg could be fit enough to start the game whilst the wise money suggests that Potter will bring back both Leroy Fer and Martin Olsson for what promises to be one of our toughest tests this season to date.
Potter himself is calling on his side to focus again and is certainly not underestimating the quality of the opposition "Wigan have done very well so far this season. They have created chances and scored goals and they have some very good players so it will be a tough game.
"They have been really positive in the way they have played. Promoted teams are used to winning and you can see that with Wigan. It's a bit like Sheffield United last year - they have stuck to the ideas that brought them success last season."

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
