  • Wed, 13 Nov 2019 10:00:07 +0000: From Bellingham to Watkins: 10 young Championship stars shining this season - Swansea City | The Guardian

    Birmingham’s youngest scorer and a player likened to Callum Wilson make our selection of second-tier players aged 23 or under

    Bellingham was born in June 2003, when a ponytailed David Beckham joined Real Madrid and Gareth Southgate was in the England defence, but the teenage midfielder has displayed a maturity that belies his years. In August Bellingham, who has shone in the crux of the Birmingham midfield alongside the former Arsenal prospect Daniel Crowley, became the club’s youngest goalscorer at 16 days and 63 days, eclipsing Trevor Francis’s record. The son of Mark, a prolific striker at non-league level, Bellingham is the latest Birmingham academy graduate to make a splash in the first team, as Demarai Gray and Nathan Redmond did previously.

  • Tue, 12 Nov 2019 17:29:23 +0000: Lukasz Fabianski was once ridiculed but West Ham look lost without him - Swansea City | The Guardian

    The keeper has won player of the season awards for two years running and looks even more important now he’s injured

    By Martin Laurence for WhoScored

    It’s been a difficult period for West Ham of late. Having made some eye-catching moves in the summer transfer window and picked up 11 points in their first six games, they looked well placed to challenge for Europe. But four defeats in their last five games have left the club two places above the relegation zone.

    It has gone wrong very quickly. At the end of September they were fifth in the table, having kept three straight clean sheets – a record that remains unbeaten 12 games into the season. West Ham were on a roll. Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna were playing admirably at the back and new signings Sébastien Haller and Pablo Fornals had added more talent to an already exciting attack. However, the team’s real position of strength was obvious: their goalkeeper. Lukasz Fabianski was brilliant for West Ham last season and had started this campaign just as strongly.

  • Sun, 27 Oct 2019 14:14:50 +0000: Ben Wilmot’s header gives Swansea derby win over bitter rivals Cardiff - Swansea City | The Guardian

    As full league debuts go, Ben Wilmot’s will take some beating. The defender’s last league start came at the Stadio Olimpico, for Udinese, where he spent the second half of last season playing against Juventus and Milan in Serie A, but there was arguably no better environment than an electric south Wales derby for the teenager to score his first career goal.

    The Swansea centre-back, borrowed from Watford for the season, scored the only goal of the game, with his deft header enough to deflate his side’s bitter rivals Cardiff. But Wilmot’s first league start in a Swansea shirt was bittersweet given that his inclusion came at the expense of Joe Rodon, the homegrown defender who will miss Wales’s crucial Euro 2020 qualifiers next month after sustaining a fresh tendon injury.

    One of the quirks about the south Wales derby is that more than a century on from the first meeting of Swansea and Cardiff at the Vetch Field in 1912, neither team have done the league double.

  • Sat, 05 Oct 2019 16:25:57 +0000: Scott Hogan’s late strike gives Stoke first win after fightback at Swansea - Swansea City | The Guardian

    The thudding sound from the away dressing room said it all, with Mumford & Sons’ I Will Wait a very apt song choice given Stoke City had just toasted their first league win of the season at the 11th time of asking. A subtle wink from Nathan Jones, who was resigned to losing his job in midweek after an eighth league defeat, towards the directors’ box – where the chairman, Peter Coates, his son, John, the vice-chairman, and Tony Scholes, the chief executive – spoke volumes.

    As a conga of delirious supporters charged down from the top tier to the bottom to celebrate their side’s first league win for 182 days, Jones punched the air and pointed to the directors’ box.
