SWANSEA City fans will get to see exactly what goes on in training when Garry Monk's men hold an open session this week.

But now Swans supporters have an opportunity to see for themselves how their team prepare for games. A special session will be held at the Liberty on Wednesday at 11am ahead of next Saturday's meeting with Aston Villa. Garry Monk dedicated this...

Whoops! Seems like this Newcastle fan had a severe case of forgetting to think before you tweet. Twitter user @GTEazyx posted this tweet yesterday before the Newcastle v Swansea game at St James Park. If Shola scores I will get his name tattooed on me— Lee. (@GTEazyx) April 19, 2014

Five things we learned from Swansea City's defeat of Newcastle

Hi mate, Using dongle, so can't log in to WPS. Would you mind putting this up please? 1. Swansea City have introduced long throws. Renowned for a patient passing game that relies on subtle build-up rather than playing the percentages, Swansea broke from tradition somewhat by hurling balls into the box on a couple of occasions in Newcastle. Angel Rangel aimed for Wilfried Bony from the touchline, suggesting Garry Monk is open to more varied tactics than his predecessors. 2. Newcastle fans are...

Barclays Premier League: Newcastle United 1 Swansea City 2

SWANSEA City claimed a precious victory that could secure their Premier League status as Wilfried Bony struck in injury-time against Newcastle. That means they now sit six points above the relegation zone, with three games of the season remaining after Cardiff drew and Fulham lost. And Swansea have a better goal difference than both of those sides. Garry Monk's men looked to be heading for a draw as the clock ticked down at St James's Park. But with just seconds remaining, a Newcastle attack...

I'M convinced reports of disharmony in the Swansea City camp will actually bring the players closer together.Like Garry Monk, I think that the stories of arguments in training this week have been blown totally out of proportion.At every club I've been associated with they have happened.Clashes on the training ground are a normal part of football, and in some ways they suggest a more healthy dressing room because people care about the cause.But they are perhaps something the public are not aware...

ALAN Pardew believes Newcastle's poor form can benefit his side by providing a major incentive to beat Swansea City today. Four straight defeats have left the manager under pressure as his team tumble down the Premier League table. And Pardew reckons the desire to end that run will push his players this afternoon. "What drives managers, as much as success sometimes, is failure, because with your pride and experience you have had and the knowledge you have, you want to put it right," he...

HEADS UP COLUMN: Sumo, wash-bags and why Swansea City must make...

THERE have been more bust-ups in Swansea City training this season than they have in an average term at the Tokyo sumo school. Louis Vuitton wash-bags have been flying round all over the shop. First there was Chico Flores's disagreement with Garry Monk. Then came news this week that there had been three separate flare-ups during a practice match. Apparently, no great harm was done in any of the various squabbles. Flores's encounter with Monk escalated no further than verbals — although the...

GARRY Monk reckons someone outside Swansea City is trying to derail the club's survival push after this week's reports of a training ground bust-up. Speculation about the mood in the Swansea dressing room has been rife after the Daily Mail claimed a practice match held last week had ended in a brawl. Swansea have confirmed that incidents took place, although the Post understands they were not as dramatic as was initially reported. And Monk has today rejected all talk of unrest in the camp - and...
