Swansea show spirit in 2-2 Bournemouth draw, but it isn't enough

Swansea City fought a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 with Bournemouth at Liberty Stadium.
Swansea City manager Garry Monk says his side really wanted to win against Bournemouth but it didn't go according to plan.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes his players were excellent against Swansea City and deservedly scored twice.

Swansea's 2-2 draw against Bournemouth on Saturday was enough to keep Garry Monk in a job, although the board probably wouldn't have swung the ax even if Swansea lost. Chairman Huw Jenkins' close friendship with his manager has apparently given Monk more margin for error than most get, but a loss would have seriously tested Jenkins' apparent loyalty.

There are many who will applaud Swansea for sticking by their manager in tough times, and if nothing else, the law of averages suggests that the...

Garry Monk running out of time at Swansea ahead of Bournemouth clash

Swansea boss Garry Monk insists his side can get out of their troubled spell.

Garry Monk's Swansea have one won just once in nine games and the young manager's future is uncertain.

A home win to Bournemouth on Saturday will give Monk the breathing space he needs, but should Swansea lose, they may be looking for a new manager.

A quick comparison between Monk's recent record and those of other Premier League managers who have already been sacked this season shows the Swans' man is very much living on the edge.

His last 10 games in all competitions have produced a 20 percent...

Anfield atmosphere among worst in Premier League as fans give verdicts

The ESPN FC crew discuss fans leaving early in matches and our match-goers believe the Premier League can improve.

What's it really like to attend a Premier League match? Many watch from afar and don't know, so we polled our ESPN FC match-going bloggers -- the guys in the stands week in, week out -- to find out how they rate the atmosphere and experience.

They didn't hold back. Not surprisingly, our Arsenal blogger considered the Emirates too corporate while our Liverpool blogger didn't hold back when asked about the atmosphere at Anfield.

Swansea spinning their wheels after latest loss at Norwich

Garry Monk says his side's recent run of poor form doesn't indicate a lack of talent for Swansea.

Swansea's awful run continued on Saturday with a 1-0 defeat to a Norwich side who had been stuck in a rut of their own heading into the game. A drab match seemed to be heading for a draw until more sloppy set-piece defending gave Norwich a way out of the darkness at Swansea's expense.

With now just one win in nine games, the word crisis seems more of a sober observation than a hysterical over-reaction. Worse, manager Garry Monk seems to have no solution. It's easy to look at the enormous amount...

Swansea will need more effort vs. Norwich to break barren run

Bafetimbi Gomis will have to put in a stronger effort than they did vs. Arsenal if they're to climb to the top third of the table.

A 2-1 win over bottom-of-the-table Aston Villa the Saturday before last offered Swansea a temporary reprieve from a six-game winless streak. Last week, Arsenal ruined any hope of a sustained revival by handing the Swans a 3-0 home defeat. Garry Monk's men will be looking for a second chance to get back to winning ways on Saturday when they visit a Norwich side that has lost four straight league matches.

A curious stat shows that Swansea are undefeated when visiting teams below them in the table....

Individual errors do in Swansea against Arsenal

Swansea City manager Garry Monk says his side's performance didn't warrant a 3-0 defeat by Arsenal.

Swansea's best team performance since August was buried under a 3-0 home defeat to Arsenal on Saturday. The defeat should remind the Swans of three important lessons: you have to take your chances when they come; good teams punish mistakes; and you should take what you can while the going's good.

Had Swansea put in Saturday's performance -- individual errors aside -- in any of the six winless games the team endured throughout September and most of October, they might have come away from that period...
