Big come from behind preseason victory against Yeovil on a Matty Grimes goal from 25 yards out
Just watched the highlights. That was a hell of a strike from Grimes. Dan James looked like he might do some work down that right wing. Mostly I am just looking forward to seeing what the team is we ultimately assemble.
Bit of a weak goal we let in though.
Asoro with some good runs. Narsingh with the loan goal.
The biggest thing I saw though from that video was player movement especially in to the box and runs on the wing. Exciting to see Potters touch on the team after just two weeks. Cant wait to see what more he brings to the fold.
Forgot to respond earlier but yeah Asoro looks interesting. It was nice to see more people crashing the box on attack than we are used to seeing the seams do. Hopefully that keeps up during the season.
We need to get better at penalties
Andre Ayew off the books. Off on loan to Fenerbahce.
Loan is an odd choice.
Was hoping we would sell but I'm guessing nobody hit on our valuation and the club is hedging on him performing well this year and bringing his value back up to sell next year or hoping we bounce back up and he plays a part. Idk
Fenerbahce do have the option to buy after the year loan.
Two new signings in Barrie McKay from Nottingham Forest and Man City youth Bersant Celina.
Not exactly thrilling but I'll let Potter do his thing.
Yeah, it’s going to be up to youngsters to pull us back up into the PL do hopefully we can identify and recruit some good ones.
Happy Match Day.
Not expecting much to start the year, hel Potter is still trying to bring in his guys and we've seen a lot of talent leave. Think it takes us a couple months to get this squad to gel. Still hoping for some positive out of today.
Did you subscribe to the service?
No Routs! Still got Dyer in the side but ill take it.
Planning on using reddits soccerstreams unless it doesnt produce good results.
If you could share a link when you find one, I’d appreciate it
Actually just set up a 7 day free trial with ESPN + but this will come in handy moving forward once I cancel.
So, not great. I like a return to the 4-2-3-1, but our midfield needs to get better. Also, Oli seemed pretty lazy out there. Really wish Tammy were still here. Hell, Bony would be better for possession.
Also odd that Carroll didn't get that left footed free kick instead of Olsson
Would have been very disappointing if they hadn't leveled there
God damn. Jeff causing so much trouble out there and Dhanda with the nice finish right off the bench
That’s a great way to start the season. 3 points on the road with a cobbled together roster. Nice to Jeff back out there wrecking right backs. A couple of opportunistic goals based on just having more players push into the box. Sluggish first half but noticeable improvement in the second with multiple good chances. I like McKay and I think Asoro showed some life out there early.
That was a lot of fun and I haven't said that in a few years watching the Swans.
We have obvious holes and glaring issues. We aren't completely comfortable with the tactics and we struggled at times playing out of the back. But all in all I saw a lot of things I liked with Potters tactics and to get the 3 points on the road early is massive.
Jeff was so good. And then he made the bone head last minute decision to send in a cross instead of running out the clock.
Massive super sub, but yeah the cross was one of the most idiotic things possible. If that would have cost us 2 points id had been livid.
I wouldn’t have faulted him for dribbling it in and going for goal himself, but that quick cross when the obvious winning move was to take it to the corner pissed me off
Hope Dhanda does well for y'all. Wish he would have stayed but he needed PT
He came in the game in the second half and scored the game winner on his first touch seconds later.
Sold Fernandez to newcastle
Sold Clucas to Stoke
Sold Ayew to Palace (expected for that twat to leave since he wasnt showing up to training)
Sold Amat to Rayo Vallecano
Potter wanted Clucas gone I guess. I figured somebody would want Fede. Ayew only being a loan is annoying. I did not expect Amat to leave
I am worried about center back. The youth movement was necessary, but it could get bumpy.
Apparently McKay won a penalty, but McBurnie missed it
Can't find a stream but apparently Fulton headed home a cross from Asoro. Glad we didn't sell Jay this week.
Also, the website and the app have different comments in their match day sections
Potter going wth a bunch of defensive seeming substitutions to try and hold this 1 goal lead.
Sounds like they had to scramble to keep the clean sheet but that’s 6 points from two games, so I’ll take it.
I went ahead and paid for the service when it seemed impossible to find a stream. Really good organization in the back the last 10 minutes plus stoppage. Mike VdH played really well as did Fulton.
McBurnies work rate on both ends is incredible, we are def going to need to find him some help or he wont make it through the year.
“Most people thought this time last year that the club had had a good window, with Renato Sanches and Tammy Abraham coming in on loan and Sam Clucas arriving.”
What’s that in regards to?
About the window that just closed and the upcoming loan window. He was saying you have to wait to judge the business done.
Very true, last year I was very hopeful we had strengthened enough and obviously we didn’t.
If we can win with the youth we have great, and even ideal but the biggest issue has to be depth. The championship is brutal and then you add the cups and these guys will need a break.
Potter really doesn’t seem to like Clucas.
McKay and Celina have been bad so far.
That was a horrible display of passing. Too often they tried to make Head passes or one touch passes when they should have just controlled the ball because they weren’t under pressure. Just dumb play. McBurnie had a bad day with some awful turnovers.
The best we have looked was with Montero in the game. I’d like to see more of him.
That was an atrocious showing. Birmingham outplayed us everywhere. Shows how poor our midfield is as we got ran over. Oh well I’ll take the away point I guess.
Celina has some individual ability that he flashed, but his passing was just terrible today.
Hell of an early season match with Leeds today. Feel like this will be a decent barometer for how much strengthening we need. Bielsa has this side looking pretty good early.
