End Of An Era? Manchester United 2 Swansea City 0

End Of An Era? Manchester United 2 Swansea City 0

In the early kick off Manchester City had defeated Newcastle United to strengthen their position and be within touching distance of their first league title since 1968. As Swansea visited the theatre of dreams, it is safe to say that their dreams had come true. With the away fans making a lot of noise at the start of the game the atmosphere was understandably somewhat subdued. Gunning For Goals Manchester United dominated proceedings but it took until the 28th minute …

Title Winning Education from Man United's 'Schooles'

A win for Manchester United at home to Queens Park Rangers saw them go eight points clear of Manchester City who lost to Arsenal, later on the same day. Early Controversy United were clear favourites to win against a struggling QPR side and began with great composure.

The Winning Habit | Manchester United make it 6 in a row

With Manchester City being held to a one all draw by Stoke, Manchester United had the chance to open up a 3 point gap at the top of the table. Playing at Old Trafford against an out of form Fulham side, United were expected to take all three points.

Third Month | Three Wins - Fulham 0 Swansea 3

Many believe 36 points will be enough to stay up this season. So having surpassed that figure with a victory over Man City, the pressure had been lifted off Swansea somewhat. I would say they can now freely express themselves, but that is what they have done throughout the season. Fulham are a force to be reckoned with at Craven Cottage and Swansea were on a high; with both teams playing free-flowing football this was shaping up to be a …

Giant Killers | Swansea slay the giant | Opta Stats

With the league leaders, and the cash balance giants of English football visiting Wales, this was another huge game for Swansea. Manchester City were expecting to win and getting anything from the game would really have been a bonus for the jacks. Swansea were coming into this game off the back of a very good away win where Sigurdsson was the star of the show with two spectacular 25 yard goals. Dyer had been sent off in the 60th minute …

A Game of Chance | Stoke City vs Swansea City

Stoke and Swansea have very different, distinct and uncompromising styles. So there  were no surprises in how the teams played. With Stoke having played in midweek and Swansea returning from a holiday in Tenerife, many were expecting the Jacks to get a good result. Within the first two minutes Sinclair had a great chance to put Swansea ahead. Rangel played a lovely weighted pass for Dyer to latch onto and slide the ball to the penalty spot. However Sinclair could …
