So it's Agger then that helped us keeping those clean sheets, and Coutinho that helped us mounting all those attacks. Very dependent on those two players by the looks of it.
Doesn't take into account the opponents mentality or the flow of the game though...remember the crowd sway games

Dagger is definitely a massive loss, Coutinho has been so so but is one of a kind in our team...still think we have enough quality to manage out a draw or nick a win on the break

I don't see the energy or the resilience from our boys. They need to up their game a notch or two.
Unfortunately that's been our season so far. Look great in the 1st half, only to look desperate in the second. It's almost like we run out of steam

Think you forgot Toure?

Yup, it's all down to those three.

We look a different side since "Will-i-ams a cun't" took Coutinho out!

We've been god awful. Looked like a Sunday school team in the 2nd half.

Aspas has done absolutely nothing since coming on.
I think he has too much of a striker's approach to be playing in the hole. He doesn't show for the ball; instead he expects to be able to run on to it. Pretty impossible in the heart of Swansea's midfield.

Sterling could bring about some much needed pace to us. Let's hope he has a good impact.

Sterling for Aspas I hope!
That's be some way to ruin the lads confidence !

Aspas is a poacher, more of a natural striking replacement for me

Sterling's control is far better than Aspas.... should have used him earlier.

Then...make it two thirds of Toure and a third of Skrtel.

Ingredients to a title winning team
What? World domination more like it.

In the matches he's played, he really struggled with his touch in high pressure positions.

Should we hold on to the draw or should we go for it ?

Aspas was a waste of a sub. Could have got Allen on and regained control of the match and possibly avoided conceding again.

Yup...think thats the weight of the shirt partially, doesn't seem as confident as he needs to be. Looking at some of his games for Celta he wasn't like that...
