Match Report & Information


The big games come thick and fast in the Premier League. Just 5 days after travelling to Old Trafford, Liverpool were the visitors to the Liberty Stadium. Kenny Dalglish is under pressure after a series of poor results and a defeat here would not help. Federico Bessone returned to the line up after injury and his presence had been missed. A fantastic 3-0 win against one of the big-boys.

61 Liverpool (Bellamy)

I think the way you're doing it now is perfect, it's easy to read and gives a great overview of how you're doing. BTW - i think you'll beat Albion over 2 legs and get to the League Cup Final. Also, well done to beat Liverpool and Arsenal.

Match Report & Information


Not a good game for the nerves, but a great game to watch.

By half-time, Swansea had raced into a 4-0 lead and looked clear favourites to progress through to the final. I don't know what Hodgson said at half-time but a totally difference West Brom team turned up in the second half and two goals from substitute Odemwingie along with a Garry Monk own goal bought it back to 4-3 before a Leon Britton penalty pulled it back to 5-3 and yet there was still time for another penalty from Chris Brunt brought it back to 5-4.

Match Report & Information


After a tight match at the Hawthorns, Fulham visited the Liberty. Another tight affair with Swansea claiming a 3-2 win. Obviously little problem going forward but the defence are struggling to keep it tight at the back. Definitely something to address in the summer.

68 Swansea City (Rangel) 76 Swansea City (Orlandi)
