  • Sat, 27 Nov 2021 19:08:48 +0000: Championship roundup: Coventry comeback denies Cherries top spot - Swansea City | The Guardian
    • Kane’s 95th-minute equaliser seals dramatic 2-2 draw
    • Preston come from behind to hold leaders Fulham

    Bournemouth missed the chance to go top of the Championship as Todd Kane’s dramatic stoppage-time equaliser for Coventry held them to a 2-2 home draw.

    Scott Parker’s side cruised into a comfortable two-goal lead through Jaidon Anthony in the 45th minute and Philip Billing in the 66th – but a 68th-minute red card for Jefferson Lerma following a last-man tackle on Matt Godden changed the picture. Godden pulled a goal back with five minutes of normal time remaining before Kane struck in the fifth minute of added time.

  • Thu, 18 Nov 2021 16:11:47 +0000: Swansea’s Russell Martin: ‘If you don’t believe in what we’re doing, no problem’ - Swansea City | The Guardian

    Youngest manager in the top four tiers on his unbreakable philosophy, ‘tasty’ five-a-sides at the leisure centre and Cop26

    It is fair to say the standard of the Wednesday five-a-side league has improved of late at Penyrheol Leisure Centre, where Swansea supporters have been duelling with familiar faces, including the head coach, Russell Martin, and the technical coach, Matt Gill. Unsurprisingly, the staff team are top of the league, set up by the longstanding groundsman at the club’s Fairwood training base, Kevin Roberts, who usually assumes the role of referee. “I told off our kit man, Mike, for playing too many Hollywood passes last week,” says Martin, laughing. “‘Just keep it simple!’ He was fuming. We play the Swans way.”

    Over the years, Roberto Martínez, Brendan Rodgers, Michael Laudrup and Graham Potter set up Swansea to dominate. Martin, too, believes in a possession-based style and fans are enjoying what they are seeing. The team have had a greater share of possession in every Championship game this season – only Potter’s Brighton enjoyed more of the ball against them, in September’s Carabao Cup match – and in victory against Peterborough last month they completed 779 passes. They average 537 short passes a game – almost double the tally of Saturday’s visitors, Blackpool – but Martin knows not everyone agrees with his thinking despite four wins in the past six matches. “If you don’t believe in what we’re doing, no problem, but we really do,” he says.

  • Wed, 20 Oct 2021 21:42:41 +0000: West Brom drop to third after Jamie Paterson fires Swansea to comeback win - Swansea City | The Guardian
    • Fulham climb above West Brom after win over Cardiff
    • Coventry stay fourth despite home defeat to Preston

    West Brom lost ground on the Championship leaders Bournemouth as Jamie Paterson’s superb strike secured Swansea a 2-1 comeback win.

    Karlan Grant’s goal after just 52 seconds gave the visitors a deserved 1-0 half-time lead, but Swansea were the better side after the break. The in-form striker Joel Piroe’s eighth goal in all competitions brought them level and then set up Paterson who finished with aplomb.

  • Sun, 17 Oct 2021 15:56:43 +0000: Mick McCarthy brushes off talk of Cardiff exit after Swansea drubbing - Swansea City | The Guardian

    Mick McCarthy has pledged to fight on as Cardiff manager after Swansea inflicted a south Wales derby mauling and a sixth successive defeat on his side. Jamie Paterson, Joël Piroe and Jake Bidwell were on target as Swansea piled the pressure on the embattled McCarthy with a comfortable Championship victory.

    “I am bitterly disappointed,” said McCarthy, whose side are two places and three points above the relegation zone. “It’s difficult when you are on a run like we are. All of a sudden it doesn’t look cohesive and sometimes you get opened up.
