LEIGHTON JAMES COLUMN: Next transfer window could be most...

SWANSEA City could be heading for the most important transfer window of their history.Without meaning to be negative, I don't think many will be predicting Swansea to finish in the top five come May.Realistically, you'd expect their final position to be a bit lower.Garry Monk and the boys have made a fantastic start to the campaign. With nearly a third of the season gone they are fifth.But I know how unforgiving this division can be.After all, we were top of the table on March 1 in 1982 only to...

LEE TRUNDLE COLUMN: Wilfried Bony is yet to peak at Swansea City

LEE TRUNDLE COLUMN: Wilfried Bony is yet to peak at Swansea City

WILFRIED Bony will get better the longer he stays at Swansea City.Clearly it is fantastic to hear that Wilf is close to agreeing a new Liberty contract.At 25, his best years are still to come, although it is not always as straightforward as saying a player peaks at a certain age.Often you flourish in the right environment, and Wilf definitely seems to suit Swansea.I didn't arrive at Swansea until I was 27, but the club played a different style to Wrexham and I produced my best here.Wilf is the...
