Having made his name as a lower league showboat specialist during Swansea City's years in the Football League, Lee Trundle has once again proved that, at the age of 40, he very much still has "it".
Turning out for a team of Swansea All-Stars on Sunday, Trundle lit up the game against Briton Ferry Llansawel Over-35s by helping himself to a double hat trick, including a truly mind-bending trick penalty kick.
Defeated 5-0 at Tottenham on Saturday, Swansea are now not just in danger of being relegated but of becoming a laughing stock.
Perhaps now boss Bob Bradley will finally stop trying to play the defensive 4-3-3, which is clearly a poor fit for his players. Maybe the new owners will be forced to spend in January. Things can only get better, surely?
One shot all game (off target) isn't going to win anything. The system Bradley is playing is meant to be defensive, but this team does...
LONDON -- Tottenham Hotspur got back on form with a resounding 5-0 win over Swansea thanks to braces from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, writes Iain Macintosh.
1. Tottenham obliterate sorry Swansea
After a run of just one win in 10 games, this was the fixture that Tottenham needed to get their season back on track. Swansea City, excellent against Everton and successful -- if rather less excellent -- in a 5-4 win against Crystal Palace, were swept aside at White Hart Lane. The Swans were beaten...
It's a massive match this Saturday as leaders Chelsea host third-placed Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Antonio Conte's men have enjoyed a strong campaign so far while Pep Guardiola's men are just one point behind following a run of seven wins in a row. Liverpool, who travel to Bournemouth on Sunday, will be paying close attention to events at the Bridge as they could capitalise on any slip ups from either side.
Manchester United travel to Everton in desperate need of a victory having...
Swansea will travel to Spurs this Saturday for a match which will beg a difficult question of Bob Bradley -- how to play defensively with a team that can't defend? Swansea should be on a high following last Saturday's shootout against Crystal Palace which saw the Welsh club prevail 5-4, scoring a long overdue glut of goals in the process. However, for all the offensive prowess on display, the Swansea defence was awful.
Bradley has rotated his central defensive pairing, switching back and...
Five goals from a team averaging less than one a game is a huge improvement. Fernando Llorente found his scoring touch and should start the next few matches, while Jefferson Montero reminded everyone why he is still one of Swansea's most dangerous players.
Bradley has been trying to find his best starting XI, but has forced players to fit...
