No Armstrong in the Squad and the bench is full of kids - but they're all very promising kids. :D

That's the best team we've got all things considered. I just hope its Gallagher through the middle and not Dolan.

I'd prioritise Brereton-Diaz through the middle, the other two can support him from the wings if needs be.

I'd like to see McBride, Garrett and Davenport at some point this afternoon, but will be surprised if we don't have to replace Ayala with Carter before too long.

Also glad to see Eastham get in the squad, he was the most impressive of our back up goalkeepers (that I saw) last season.

I think it may be a big season for Buckley too.

Pretty happy with starting line up. Just hope with the bench we have that we are not chasing a goal.

Surely that has to be more a front three than anything else though?

It's not hyphenated, it's Spanish style father's surname, mother's surname.

One of the best half's I've seen us play in a while, lots of energy and dynamic, confident runners.

Swansea not helping themselves by trying to play out from the back.

Swansea keeper is having an absolute mare and their defence isn't much better. Hope we can get a second early-ish in the second half so we don't park the bus after 80+ minutes.

Good first half though!
