Back now from South Wales and what a disappointment that was. Adam J didn’t play in Lisbon so despite being fresh wasn’t picked for Swansea, coming on as sub far too late. They got a dodgy pen which Joe, to his credit saved easily. We had a stonewall pen turned down, Savic made his customary boob, we had a great goal disallowed for marginal offside of Micah’s ear, and whilst we didn’t play well, and they did without threatening it was 3 points lost which we can ill afford. Meanwhile over at the swamp, West Brom had a man sent off, were denied a nailed on pen and the rags got a soft one at the death. It’s a Fix I’m afraid, 1972 all over again – we won’t get a decision for the rest of the season and I can’t see us doing it now – so we must go all out for the Europa Cup. We failed to strengthen defensively in the window and are now desperate for Tevez to come back and change things for us in the Prem. to give us a glimmer of hope.
Cups For Cock Ups?
Swansea’s programme had plenty on City – with pieces on the modern day manager, Swansea/City links, fun facts (we actually paid £53,000 for Denis Law not £45,000!) Mancini, star men, managers, City 3 united 1 in 2005 (wrong date!) previous encounters, Vic Gomersall, Kevin Reeves, and a review of the 2006 Youth Cup players by ex Blue Curtis Obeng now a Swansea player. So lot of homework done there to excuse the odd mistake.
