    Few concerns from some he isn't quite ready. Motm for me. Elite fitness levels. Kept winning the ball, winning fouls. Deceptively very quick and strong. Just turned 18. Mental. Has to be in every game when fit no doubt. Also thought Brownhill was very good like always. Together we relied on them massively to not lose that game. I'd play them both and Nagy when all available.

    ....Club needs positive support and positive reaction. With Afobe, Kalas, DaSilva and Nagy all sidelined it would be easy to feel downhearted. Boy's need support and a feeling of togetherness throughout the fan base. Where there is adversity others can come to the fore and take their chance...Taylor has shown what can be done. Smozdicks and Semenyo could be the next Reid... Famara could find some class to match his spirit...Rowe could continue to astound. Etc etc. Lads have done fantastic all season with injuries...winning games the hard way. Can't help but feel strangely war like in mentality after today. Looking forward to tomorrow...stuff the Swans and get behind the lads.

    They only took 500 up to London today, another pathetic following. Too busy sliming around Millenium Square dishing out blow jobs to Swansea fans I expect...

    Are you having a bloody laugh? You won't believe anything until it comes from LJ, now this does come from his mouth and you think it's a lie? Bloody hell. You need to have a word with yourself pal.

    Fantastic performance. He shouldn't be that good, at that age ir indeed that strong being that small. Also worth a mention today is Taylor Moore, after his yellow he could have gone missing, but it was a confident, controlled and mature performance from another player having his first Championship season.

    Played like ........ a Experienced ,International , So Intelligent in his positioning and decisions, composed himself and organising The Swansea Front Man never quite recovered from meeting a very ‘solid’ , but fair , challenge from Mr Williams fairly early on Two words for me. Class Act

    @spudski It’s the British mentality

    for me at least. He was terrific, keeping their wide man under shackles for nearly the whole game, getting forward, putting in the blocks etc a no nonsense RB

    Honestly thought the game totally passed him by, he worked hard but can't think of anything he did for us attacking wise, think he will need a run of games to get used to the pace of the championship

    In his RB interview LJ said when asked about what Bakers injury was “ I don’t know and I haven’t even asked”. Struck me as being 50% annoyed at the restructure needed and 50% at the individual...

    Interesting reading people saying his legs are gone before he signed. Tell them to watch the 20 yard sprint to cover back when he lunged in front of a shot and almost injured himself on Bentley. Excellent commitment. Won nearly everything in the air and comfortably managed 90 minutes today. I thought he was excellent. As was Taylor Moore, boy has that lad stepped up. The two kept their big man quiet. Kalas is a massive loss, but we've got some very hard working back up.

    Was going to post asking how he got on. Imagine saying a couple of months ago we'd be lining up with Moore and Williams in our centre of defence and Rowe next to them, would've have been some very unhappy people! Glad he's started well and great to see Moore stepping up after the rumours of him leaving.

    I promise you that if there was anyone more thrilled or excited to make his debut , or to do well here , I’d be amazed For that reason alone I desperately hope he succeeds

    Was hoping somebody may recognise this guys contribution today , again So thought I’d pull this one back up Absolutely top drawer , his save from Ayew brave and top drawer and won us a point His presence , handling , bravery , presence all top drawer for me Fantastic to have a keeper of his quality in there , with Maenpaa not too far behind for me If we’d signed England International Jack Butland and he’d come in and performed as well as Bentley has done , everyone would be saying that’s what £xxxx million gets you He will of course make the odd mistake , but he hasn’t yet and Butland in form is the level he’s at for me right now Everything I want in a keeper & Im amazed anyone can or has questioned we’ve signed a top keeper Take a bow DB

    He seems to protect himself quite a lot and gets substituted more than any defender I have ever known

    The real concern for me is that I think Afobe has been a major factor in Kasey Palmers form this season. I don’t dislike Diedhiou but Afobe is far more mobile. He gives Palmer the opportunity to play his passes. He stretches the opposition defence and allows Palmer more space to play in and on top of all that, they seemed to get on so well on and off the pitch. I don’t think it’s quite as simple as “we’ll miss his goals”. I think it’s a massive blow to the way we have been playing too.

    Crowd is terrible since new stadium. Very big library. So sad to see, used to have so much having banter with the away fans all game in the eastend andnif I wasnt in there watching the eastend and joining in. It got the crowd buzzing and made a 12th man but swansea(derby) and many other teams make us look silly. What happened?

    Thought he played well today. Big step up for him but he ran his socks off to. More exciting things to come from him this season and next.

    Ok didnt do enough to win the game. But against a very good side the players stepped up and performed....something we struggle with at home. Massengo brownhill shout outs both excellent. William's and Moore both very solid. One thing I would say, on today's evidence, Adofe a massive loss. Slightly disappointed with Swansea like us lack that clinical edge up top. Either way really enjoyed it rare for a 0-0

    Hang on - the Steward “Had the City on Lockdown” Was it one of these guys? (NB - out of order, common sense definitely lacking there)

    I'm not sure how to word this as I would never try to belittle what happened there as it was utterly horrendous, but for me, Belsen shocked me more. I'm not going to try and use numbers as a reference as to why I think that as humans should never be referenced as just a number but Belsen was harrowing. Especially considering they never actually had gas chambers there (no matter what the Sex Pistols may have sang about) I suppose it didn't help that my grandad was one of the first wave of troops that helped liberate Belsen. From listening to the people that knew him before that (especially my nan) they all say he was never the same afterwards. As a kid growing up he would tell me loads of stories about certain parts of the war (he was a desert rat fighting Rommel through Africa/Egypt and Italy). He told me about scratching his name on the sphinx and how his best friend burned to death in a tank that he escaped from, but he absolutely refused to speak about Belsen and what he saw. One of the great British reporters of the time Richard Dimbleby (father of David Dimbleby) said at the time "Here over an acre of ground lay dead and dying people. You could not see which was which... The living lay with their heads against the corpses and around them moved the awful, ghostly procession of emaciated, aimless people, with nothing to do and with no hope of life, unable to move out of your way, unable to look at the terrible sights around them ... Babies had been born here, tiny wizened things that could not live ... A mother, driven mad, screamed at a British sentry to give her milk for her child, and thrust the tiny mite into his arms, then ran off, crying terribly. He opened the bundle and found the baby had been dead for days. This day at Belsen was the most horrible of my life." Every day of our lives we should be thankful that we have never had to see or live through the absolute horror that people of only two or three generations past had to live.

    Had a run in with a steward today who must have had her Weetabix for breakfast. At half-time, I felt a bit woozy so wanted to check my blood sugar. So went to walk out the KFC exit to get my meter and insulin. As I approached the gate, the conversation went as follows: Steward: Are you leaving for the day? Me: No, I’m just nipping to my car to..... Steward: (interrupting my explanation) You can’t leave, we’re on lockdown! Me: What do you mean lockdown? This isn’t North Korea. Steward: You can’t leave. Me: Well I can and I am. I’m diabetic and I need my medication which I’ve left in my car, (now I’m getting a bit chopsy myself as her attitude was appalling). So if you need to get on the radio and get someone down here to authorise it, then please do. Steward: (Blunt as you like) You should have remembered to bring it with you. Me: (fuming now) Do you think I did it on purpose? Steward: Go on, I’ll give you 5 minutes. Me: (utterly speechless)...... Obviously absent for the common sense and awareness training.

    Baker cannot be trusted. Any player that asks to come off is a liability. Its that simple. For a big bloke he is a pansy. So so predictable that he would do this and so so disappointing. LJ needs to manage him out of the door.

    Initially I’d agree RR but a point the very intelligent Tommy Rowe explained in his interview with Geoff Twentyman a couple of weeks back I found interesting and food for thought regarding loans or keep in squad GT asked him at what point , if he had yet , did he feel comfortable playing Championship football Rowe explained it was the actual training was the hurdle to conquer in its intensity and with and against Championship quality players He said rising to that challenge was the bigger challenge as opposed to then actually playing once you feel comfortable Anon training pitch Coming from such a sensible and intelligent pro (The whole interview was excellent and interesting for those who havnt heard it) I found it both interesting, and thought provoking

    FAKE NEWS: In 88 appearances for City, he has been subbed during the first half or at half time: Once this season. 3 times last season. 4 the season before, once for Steele after Frankie got sent off, so really 3 times. TOTAL: 7 (8) Yes he's had his fair share of injuries and suspensions, but your stat is plain incorrect.

    Gary Owers nailed it when he said the way he uses his body , to shield the ball , and to out ‘muscle’ bigger opponents , better than any young player he’s ever seen Id agree with him

    If we had Afobe then I'd fancy us, definitely. Now not so much.

    Funny I didn’t think he was all that today. Very good at defending his space and getting his body in the right position but not so good on the ball

    I worked at the army base just up the road from Belsen, the old train station warehouse was still there and chillingly the cobbled road made by the inmates that led to the concentration camp. During a snowy day, work was called off so me and a friend decided to pay a visit to Belsen camp, it was staggeringly quiet, no birds could be heard, but the huge mounds all around you with the numbers of buried interred, unbelievable, a haunting place that was uncomfortable to see today so God knows what it was like for the soldiers liberating it, don't forget this was a work camp, not an extermination camp, horrendous place.

    Agree But don’t you think that it proves a point a simple , catchy , decent song based on a tune that people are familiar with , are the ones that always work It would be great to have some unique chants but they don’t come about too easily , and it may be to a tune that many clubs have also adapted, but for me I don’t give a monkeys if it creates a good / better atmosphere ?

    I thought it generally passed him by. Worked hard, but not really involved. Thing is, he’s just jumped two levels. He’s playing against million pound plus players today who have been at the top level of the game. Last year he was playing against Yeovil. He should learn from today. And he’s the very epitome of a player who actually even spending time in training around the squad should kick him on. He needs a fair bit of that before he’s really ready for this level. Tried, worked, didn’t impact. But hopefully learnt a lot

    Not here it isn’t. AW has the movement and I believe could get 15 goals.
