Some heartening news bits out of South Wales the past few days. An expectation that Swansea City will be at their all-time strongest heading into the new season next month. I dreamed the other night I was working hard at my new position and I suddenly realized it was August 10th, and I had missed the Swans opener at Chelsea.
A good summer for Jonjo Shelvey: getting married and then signing on for four years with his club. His comments to the press:
I’ve found a club that is a superb place to play your football.
I’ve not regretted the move once since I left (Liverpool), and now I’ve signed for four more years I can’t wait to kick on.
I hadn’t realized he had been signed from Liverpool. With Steven Gerrard departing, I wonder if that team has anybody at midfield ready to fill the gap. Maybe the Swans will finish ahead of Liverpool this coming season.
I also have to say Jonjo really straightened out his game from a clownish down point versus his old team. I like to see players buckle down and flourish with hard work.
Hoping for a good season ahead. I may be 1800 miles farther away from Wales, but I will still be rooting for my favorite overseas club.
