    Hopefully we can pick up where we left off, predicting a 2-0 win with a Borja Baston brace.

    Woodman
    Roberts - Van der Hoorn - Rodon - Bidwell
    Fulton - Grimes (C)
    Ayew - Byers - Celina
    Baston​

    Can’t see any team below us in the league getting much at Swansea. Home win.

    Question is will Forest come a defend like Birmingham or attack us like Preston did. Both lost but different approaches. Be good to get an early goal and open the game right up. Can see this being very tight 1-0 0-0

    How good is Brennan Johnson? Scored the winner against Belgium for Wales U21's and probably isn't too far off a senior call up.

    I think England want him now. He's only played in the league cup where we took the sheep apart, I was working so didn't see it, but I think he was quiet. Massive prospect though by all accounts and another off the production line.

    Happy with the international break as Swansea were gaining steam. We're doing nicely so far and with nearly two weeks on the training field, Lamouchi will have further instilled his system whilst getting to know the squad. I think we'll defend as we have in all away games thus far to a decent degree of success. Draw our aways or pinch a win seems to be our philosophy.

    1-1.

    Well he was playing for England before, and switched allegiances to us. Let's hope he's learned from his dad's mistakes on this front.

    Good to see Bersant Celina showing his quality tonight against England.

    Did you watch us away at Leeds? Absolute shithousery of a defensive job until they tired after 70 minutes and we made them look like ****s for 20 minutes.

    Away from home we are like that boxer who sustains blow after blow for 10 rounds and then comes out steaming for the last 2 rounds and leaves you flat out wondering what the **** just happened.

    My prediction........2-0 Swansea

    I have no doubt that this will be the case mate. That said I will still be content with our start considering the fixtures we've had so far and have no doubt that we will assume our rightful place well above your lot.

    I'd liken the current situation to the start of F1 qualifying when those shit teams send their drivers out first so that they can spend just a short period of time in those lofty positions

    True, and we're like the runner on the inside lane of the 400m. Looks miles behind at the staggered start but come the first couple of bends, blows the rest away.

    Rodon injured playing for Wales and could be a doubt.. hopefully he will be fit as he would be a big loss

    The last player you'd want to pick up an injury really, been brilliant for club and country and his value must be soaring. Fortunately we've got Ben Wilmot who I think will impress if he's called upon.
