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...

GARRY Monk remembers cutting a hole in a fence to get to training, and he recalls the embarrassment he felt when he showed Scott Sinclair where to find his kit.He has not forgotten how, even in the Premier League era, Swansea City's players would share a dressing room with pensioners and schoolkids.So he does not need to see Jack to a King, the film about the Swansea story which premieres tonight, to find out about where his club have come from.But Monk will watch it, and he will encourage...

Swansea City's Leon Britton at least four weeks from fitness,...

SWANSEA City are likely to be without Leon Britton for at least four more weeks as the midfielder battles a knee injury. Britton has not played yet this term having gone down with a stress fracture in his knee during pre-season. And boss Garry Monk has revealed the Swansea stalwart is still some way off a return. Leon is more long-term, Monk said. He has had another scan this week and he will have another couple of weeks of what he is doing. Hopefully he will then build...

GARRY Monk is hoping he may finally get the chance to shake Jose Mourinho's hand this weekend after hailing the Chelsea boss as a legend of management. Mourinho failed to shake hands with Monk after his Blues side won 1-0 at the Liberty last April. Monk was unhappy with the way the Chelsea bench - and their players - reacted to a foul by Chico Flores which eventually saw the Spanish centre-back sent off. But the Swansea boss insists there is no problem between him and Mourinho - and he hopes to...

GARRY Monk and Harry Potter are not normally mentioned in the same sentence. But Swansea City's magical start to the season has led to comparisons with JK Rowling's boy wizard. At least as far as Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport's European football supplement is concerned. The supplement carried a picture on the front featuring Roger Schmidt of Bayer Leverkusen, Bordeaux's Willy Sagnol, Rui Vitoria of Portuguese side Vitortia Guimaraes, and Monk, carrying the Sword of...
