Garry Monk has been "terrific" for Swansea City, says...

ROBERTO Martinez reckons old mate Garry Monk is doing a terrific job at the Liberty Stadium - and believes his work in the transfer market has been key to Swansea City's early-season success.

Swansea City's Garry Monk sets the bar high as he bids to follow...

THERE are managers, some who have worked at the Liberty in the not too distant past, who would shrug their shoulders after defeat by a superpower like Chelsea. We cannot be expected to compete with opponents of that ilk, they would point out, and this is not the kind of fixture which will decide our fate this season. Both points are fair, and Garry Monk would not argue with them. But already there are signs that Swansea's bright young boss is not the type who will simply write off a...
