While some fans might be disappointed with the side's league position given the talent pool at hand, many of them will be relieved that their side is well clear of the relegation zone.

Leon Britton | The Pass Master: 5000 passes and counting

I was recently asked by the guys at The Jack Cast podcast to look at Leon Britton's passing given the fact that he's finally broken his duck with his first assist in the Premier League during the match against Crystal Palace on 2nd March.  Upon looking at the figures I found that this was with his 4,959th pass in the Premier League so obviously not an assist machine, but that's not what he's there for.

After the clinical demolition of Fulham at Craven Cottage in what was, by common consent, Swansea City’s best performance in a generation, Swans supporters turned up in their thousands at the Liberty Stadium yesterday, confidently expecting to put the mighty Everton to the sword.
