A SHRUG of Lukasz Fabianski's shoulders offered a clue about Swansea City's ambitions for the season ahead.Swansea's goalkeeper was giving an interview in the bowels of the Stadium of Light after his side's 1-1 draw with Sunderland.It was not quite the first thing he'd had to do all afternoon, but it is fair to say Fabianski has had much busier days than this.Swansea's last line of defence had spent much of the game watching those in front of him control the ball and create enough chances to...

GARRY MONK is bracing himself for a Sunderland backlash when Swansea City visit the Stadium of Light on Saturday.The Black Cats are already under pressure after a disastrous start to the campaign.They began with an opening defeat to Leicester before then losing at home to Norwich.Fans reacted angrily to that most recent reverse and Monk is expecting a reaction this weekend."The last two games are out there, everyone's seen them, but I think they'll be dangerous," he said."I've been in positions...

LEON BRITTON could one day end up on the Swansea City coaching staff, according to Garry Monk.The veteran midfielder revealed this week he was happy to stay at the Liberty after a summer of rumours about a possible move away.Britton made his first appearance of the season against Newcastle last week, when he was given a warm reception by fans.And Monk reckons he has a lot to offer the club.I'm sure Leon has a few years left in his legs to worry about playing, said the Swansea boss....

GARRY Monk reckons Swansea City are already proving they boast the firepower to thrive in the Premier League this season.If there was one question mark about Monk's side heading into this campaign, it surrounded whether they would have enough threat up front having lost Wilfried Bony.But Bafetimbi Gomis has picked up where he left off last season, netting twice in his first two games of 2015-16 to suggest he could provide Swansea with a spearhead this term.And Monk believes new recruit Andre...
Swansea City forward Michu linked with Celtic

Swansea City forward Michu linked with Celtic

MICHU is being linked with a move to Scottish giants Celtic. The exiled Swansea City forward is set for the Liberty Stadium exit door after Garry Monk revealed he had no future with the club. The former Rayo Vallecano is reportedly interesting his old club as well as a number of other Spanish sides. But he has a year to run on a lucrative contract thought to be worth around £40,000 a week. That seems to have proved a stumbling block to a move away until now. Celtic are the latest club...

Swansea City manager Garry Monk now 20-1 to be next England boss

GARRY Monk has been cut to 20-1 to be the next England manager. Swansea's young boss has seen his reputation soar since being installed at the Liberty last year. He led the club to a record Premier League finish of eighth last season, while Swansea have started this season in style having drawn at champions Chelsea in their opening game and then beaten Newcastle in their next outing. BetVictor spokesman Charlie McCann said: "In the long term, he is a likely candidate for a post which has often...

EVEN when his team are sparkling, Garry Monk revealed this weekend, he is struggling to get to sleep at night.The problem? Trying to work out which of the many impressive performers in his squad to leave out of Swansea City's starting side.Monk declared in pre-season that the group of players he has at his disposal is the strongest ever seen in these parts.And though the season is still young, it is easy to see what he means.The signing of Andre Ayew already looks a masterstroke, for the...

Garry Monk orders Chelsea repeat against Newcastle United as...

GARRY Monk reckons a spot of "clever management" from Jose Mourinho may have taken the focus away from Swansea City's successes at Chelsea.But whatever Mourinho says, Monk argues, the media could have done a better job of reporting on a Swansea display which has set the standard for the season ahead.Even though a point could — perhaps should — have been three, the Swansea boss was rightly delighted with the way his players performed at the home of the Premier League champions.But he...

LUKASZ Fabianski has revealed how Garry Monk's players are in the mood to write another memorable chapter in the Swansea City story this season.Fabianski was one of the stars of 2014-15, when Monk's men produced some fine football as they delivered the club's highest ever Premier League finish.There would be no shame if Swansea failed to progress this season given that last term's achievements — eighth place and 56 points — look very difficult to beat.But Fabianski, who has just...
