Swans Fit To Be Tied

swan-in-attack-mode-2Posting on the Premier League has been absent the past few weeks. Not much to crow about when it comes to the Swans. Manager Garry Monk hasn’t won a league match since he scored honors for August manager of the month. Yesterday was a disappointing draw. Again.

I watched yesterday’s match against the troubled Newcastle side. It seemed the Swans just daydreamed through the effort. Wilfried Bony finally got a league goal. But he was close to netting two others. With lots of matches against teams under them in the table, they really need to rack up wins. Floating through a match against the EPL heavyweights will find you on the losing end of a tennis score as likely as not.

The manager had Bony and Bafetimbi Gomis in at the same time yesterday. I’m sure they know what they’re doing with the acquisition of the latter player, but from what I’ve seen he’s not up to the quality of the Cote d’Ivoire star.

I hadn’t seen their last three matches. NBC’s LiveExtra likes to put up the London, Liverpool, and Manchester sides for viewing. Of course. The last few weeks, not tot much from Swans. And I had to follow their 3-0 win vs Everton in the League Cup by the BBC’s quasi-Twitter format. A football friend from church was recommending what satellite packages would help me view action from the other continent. I don’t need that, I don’t think.

I’m hoping to catch a few matches on replay later tonight and tomorrow. So in the comments I’ll talk about Swans. But I’m hoping to watch Leicester-Burnley, and then a few of today’s matches without knowing the scores ahead.

And I’ve been trying not to pay attention to the Kansas City Royals. When I was on retreat, they won ten straight and surged into the division lead. I told my staff colleagues I wasn’t going to watch until the last game of the World Series this year.
