-51- Tom Huddlestone
-67- Guti

up until 67th minute when guti within 2 minutes of being on the pitch I thought this was going to be tottenham's. Guti's experience pays off.


Chelsea 1 v 0 Swansea- Stamford Bridge

-20- Neil taylor
-38- Graham Dorrans
-53- Somon Tchoyi
-61- Chris Brunt

what a bad result 3 mistakes worst of all by michel vorm who runs to thrown in line to get ball and basically crosses it in for them to shoot in empty net.


Man City 5 vs 2 Swansea - The City of Manchester stadium

-64- Carlos Tevez
-70- James Milner
-77- Edin Dzecko

a difficult month and a few hard games. Neil Taylor got injured also but wasn't expecting to take much away at city

Brighton 0 vs 1 Swansea - Liberty stadium

-58- Casper Ankergen

pretty ordinary match

League cup semi final 1st leg

Swansea 0 vs 0 Bolton - Liberty stadium

another game where strikers failed to score

You have very interesting tactics and a 3-0 win against Man City is a great result. As Akash said, your tactics seem to work very well for home matches, especially with the attacking tactics, but in away games, you will be caught out. 4-1-3-2 is a good tactic, but you are against susceptible to being attacked from the wings. But 8th in the league is pretty good.

Also, your target of finishing in top 10 could be a little challenging. I find that the Swansea team/players are a little underrated in FM as compared to real life.
I did tweak my away tactic and ever since i have been on dreadful form also picking up injuries alot in the cup. got bolton 5 times in a month and so far its 1 win apiece and 2 draws, will update after next game vs arsenal.

Bolton 2 vs 3 Swansea- Reebok Stadium

-35- Victor Anichebe
-45+2- Victor Anichibe
-57- Ashley Williams
-77- Tarik Elyounoussi
-84- Kevin Davies
img]assets/icons/injured.png[/img]-8- Scott Sinclair

the result was great giving recent form but the loss of scott sinclair will hurt i think that said its nice to see Anichebe hit the net.


Norwich 0 vs 1 Swansea- Carrow Road

-29- Guti

a nice away win for me


Bolton 2 vs 0 Swansea- Reebok Stadium ( LC 2nd leg)

-12- David Wheater
-82- Tarik Elyounoussi

Unhappy with this result as it means i go crashing out of a very winnable competition given the teams that are left.


Bolton 0 vs 0 Swansea- Reebok Stadium ( F.A cup 4th round)

nothing specific to add other than another game vs bolton...


Swansea 1 vs 1 Stoke- Liberty Stadium

-3- Jonjo Shelvey
-12- Ricardo Fuller
-31- Victor Simoes
-48-Matthew Etherington (Stoke)
-90+3- Leon Britton

A decent point and another injury have sufficient cover for now in central midfield

Arsenal 3 vs 1 Swansea - Emmirates

-10 Theo Walcott
-35 Theo Walcoot
-64 Ahmed Soukouna
-90+4- Yossi Benayoun

again the strikers are the difference in a game i think my team edged

Good story so far, keep it up

Table update


10th in table was my aim so i can't complain recent form has let me down and i hope for it to improove

Swansea 1 vs 1 Bolton- Liberty Stadium ( F.A cup 4th round replay)

-63- Tarik elyounoussi
-86- Stephen Caulker

1-1 end of 90 mins
1-1 end of extra time ( Match goes to penaalties)

- Alan Tate
- Victor Simoes
- Jonjo Shelvey
- Victor Anichebe

- Jonas Ivens
- Mark Davies
- Espen Ruud
- Darren Pratley

Bolton in the head to head and also knock me out of another cup losing on penalties and typically enough only my defender scored with strikers missing target yet again from 13 yards.

Glad to announce Scott Sinclair has resumed full training
