Swansea City

 By Max Hicks

Swansea soaring in Premier League with a bright future for Monk's men

According to Swansea City manager Garry Monk, his side turned it around after halftime in their 2-0 victory over Stoke City.

Swansea's impressive late season march continued on Saturday with a win over another lacklustre opponent, this time a 2-0 victory over Stoke. The game had been billed by manager Garry Monk as the most important match of his side's season.

That appraisal might have seemed a little over-cooked, but Saturday's result has all-but assured Swansea of their highest ever Premier League finish. Eighth place is one better than the previous best of ninth, achieved in 2012-13, and there is even a slight chance...

Swansea's culture of ambition seeking growth with win vs. Stoke

Swansea City manager Garry Monk says he's proud of the team, and believed his side could achieve something special at the end of the season.

You have to give credit to manager Garry Monk. Swansea haven't had much to play for in terms of silverware or survival for some weeks now, yet Monk has found ways to keep his side motivated. Crystal Palace's Alan Pardew has even suggested that Monk ought to follow Jose Mourinho in consideration for manager of the year honours. Mourinho will almost certainly scoop that award, but Swansea's man has still had a season to celebrate; in fact, there's almost a danger he'll set the bar too high to top...

Swansea's record 50-point haul means Garry Monk can look to the future

Swansea City manager Garry Monk says he's proud of the team, and believed his side could achieve something special at the end of the season.

At the third time of asking, Swansea finally set a new club record for Premier League points on Saturday. The Swans 3-2 win over Newcastle brought the team's tally to 50 for the season, three better than the previous record high of 47, set in 2011-12 under Brendan Rodgers.

Manager Garry Monk was club captain during that campaign, and on the early evidence looks like he might be a better manager than he was a player. When the rookie boss first took over following Michael Laudrup's mid-campaign dismissal...

Gylfi Sigurdsson's struggles could be down to Swansea's tactical changes

Ki Sung-Yeung spoke on Thursday about his move back to Swansea and becoming the top Asian goal scorer in a Premier League season.

Saturday's match between Swansea and Newcastle should have been a game between two safe teams with little to play for. However, thanks to a six-game losing streak from the Geordies, the match has suddenly become invested with real purpose.

Swansea were undone last week when faced with the focus and desperation of a highly motivated Leicester side, who are using a timely turn of good form to climb out of danger.  John Carver's Newcastle are quite the opposite, a side who are allowing a horrible...

Swansea City loss to motivated Leicester doesn't come as a surprise

Leicester are finding form at just the right time. With three wins on the bounce, the Foxes have a legitimate chance to escape relegation having looked like a dead cert for the drop less than a month ago. Throw struggling Hull's horrible home-stretch schedule in the mix, and Leicester's hopes don't just look legitimate, they look likely.

That being the case, Saturday's 2-0 victory over Swansea seemed inevitable. Garry Monk's succinct appraisal was that his side were "outfought", a statement as obvious...

Garry Monk dealing with new pressures as Swansea manager

Garry Monk has Swansea on the verge of achieving a historic finish for the club in the Premier League.
Garry Monk has Swansea on the verge of achieving a historic finish for the club in the Premier League.

Against a backdrop of rumoured interest from at least two rival clubs, Garry Monk will aim to finally set a new Swansea City Premier League points record on Saturday. Achieving that goal will only see the young manager's stock rise further, and might test the long-serving Swansea man's loyalty over the summer.

Monk has been with the club for over a decade, and was seemingly groomed for and fast-tracked to the manager's role by chairman Huw Jenkins. However, Monk's wage and release fee with Swansea...
