If Swansea sees swans, where is the Swan Sea?

Swansea City's record at home is not the best, and they are just coming off two consecutive defeats. I hope that Rovers can take this enthusiasm and keep marching forward with another victory.

I miss the Trumpism answers. They were the best answers.

I'm going to this :hyper:

Last time we played at Swansea I'm pretty sure it was our relegation season from the Prem and we got panned 4-0 or so. Looking forward to it as it feels as though we can go there confident under no pressure and just see if we can win or at least come away with something. With Leeds at home and then Swansea away it felt like a daunting couple of fixtures where you'd have probably happily taken 2 points and felt that was a good return. We've already beaten Leeds which I think is the harder of the two fixtures and we're more than capable of going there tonight and winning.

Swansea have that pressure of being a relegated side from the Prem, under a new manager and they're sat mid-table. Potter seems to have got them playing the 'Swansea way' again so they're neat and tidy in possession, so as per the Leeds games I expect us to be set up to knowingly have less of the ball but then hit them on the break as Armstrong did so well on Saturday.

Aside from beating QPR at home they're not in great form and despite being mid-table are one of the lowest scorers in the division but also only Middlesbrough have conceded fewer. If Lenihan and Mulgrew can keep McBurnie in check we've got goals in us so quietly confident.

Nyambe still out but Reed should be okay, expect to see maybe 1 or 2 changes maybe.

News that Nyambe and Davenport are possibly in the lineup, whether in the 18 or starting 11 is remain to be seen.

Probably should see Graham on the bench and hopefully see Brereton get a start up top. Really need to have an imposing, tall forward up top to play our game.

"I'll tell you about swans. So many swans. Other countries are worried about swans. They see swans and think "My God, that swan is swanning about". The Chinese, they have great swans. The best swans. If we could have swans like the Chinese swans there'd be so much swanning about. Hillary was caught swanning about on wall street so much that people will come up and ask me about the swanning about, "Isn't that a bad thing?". I'll be laughing at them knowing that our swanning about is the best swanning about. But I'll say "don't worry, buddy, about the swanning about" and then I'll hang up. Because swanning about means: no collusion. Absolutely 100% zero collusion."

Pretty good. I'd have voted for it. If you also included something about Hilary being a dirty commie swan lover and the swan boom being caused by all the Democrats you'd be on a real winner.

Yay, Brereton on. I am ready for something spectacular from him... double back somersault, with a half-twist, maybe. But, I will settle for a goal, instead. ;)

Swansea dominating second half, 2-1 to the Swans,
look like scoring more. Brereton sounds as though he is having a poor game, Dack inexplicably asked to play up front on his own.
