AN angry Garry Monk hit out at referee Michael Oliver after Swansea City went down at Stoke. Swansea lost 2-1, with Monk furious that Stoke were awarded a penalty just before the break when Angel Rangel was adjudged to have brought down Victor Moses. At that point Swansea were a goal up — Wilfried Bony had opened the scoring with a penalty — but Charlie Adam's spot-kick levelled matters, with Jonathan Walters winning the game with a header late on. Monk said of the penalty: "It's a...

GARRY Monk is optimistic that Wilfried Bony will end talk of an imminent Swansea City exit by penning a new deal at the Liberty. Swansea are set to open discussions with the striker's representatives in the next few weeks. And though Bony still has almost three years to run on the contract he signed when he arrived in Wales in 2013, Monk reckons an extension would offer proof of the Ivory Coast star's commitment to the Swansea cause. We haven't had any talks as yet, but a new...

GARRY Monk insists he is not bothered whether Wilfried Bony scores for Swansea City — providing his team deliver points.Bony netted for the first time this season against Newcastle last time out and followed that up with a goal on international duty for the Ivory Coast.But as he waits to see whether Bony will be fresh enough to start at Stoke City on Sunday, Monk is adamant there is no pressure on last season's 25-goal top scorer to repeat the feats of his maiden Swansea campaign.Of...

Swansea City boss Garry Monk: TV cameras were bang out of order...

GARRY Monk believes Alan Pardew will turn Newcastle United around — and reckons the Sky cameras were bang out of order as the Magpies lost at Stoke on Monday night. Swansea City hope to extend Newcastle's miserable start to the new season when they meet in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium tomorrow. Opposite number Pardew is under severe pressure having failed to win a top-flight game all season and finished last term with a whimper. But Monk is convinced...

Hard work pays off for Garry Monk's resilient Swansea City ahead...

GARRY Monk reckons Swansea City have proved they will fight for the right to play in the Premier League this season. Swansea host Newcastle United this weekend intent on continuing their encouraging start to the new campaign. Against a Magpies side who are currently battling near the bottom of the Premier League, a committed performance will be the minimum requirement for the home side. And Monk has no doubts that his team will deliver, for their desire has been obvious throughout the...

SWANSEA City host Newcastle United this weekend hoping to continue their best ever start to a Premier League season. Garry Monk's men have taken only one point from their last three top-flight outings, yet they are well ahead of where there were at this stage in their three previous campaigns. And given that performances in Swansea's two defeats to date this term have featured plenty of positives, Monk's side have much to be cheerful about as the second international break of the campaign...
