Transfer Rater: Llorente to Chelsea


Fernando Llorente leads Tottenham to hard-fought win at rainy Swansea

The FC crew react to Tottenham's win in tough conditions at Swansea and what failing to finish top four would mean for Spurs.

SWANSEA, Wales -- Three conclusions from Tottenham's 2-0 win at bottom-club Swansea in the Premier League.

1. Llorente shows he can cover for Kane

Pep Guardiola's description of Tottenham as "the Harry Kane team" riled Mauricio Pochettino in October but Spurs are yet to prove the Man City boss wrong, losing their only league game without Kane before tonight.

Kane was hoping to become the first player to score a hat trick of hat-tricks in the Premier League but he was benched after a heavy cold,...

Carlos Carvalhal a strange appointment for beleaguered Swansea

With Swansea appointing Carlos Carvalhal, Paul Mariner and Alexis Nunes assess his chances of keeping the club in the Premier League.

Football management is very often a profoundly curious line of work. If you'd told someone that this week Swansea and Middlesbrough had appointed Carlos Carvalhal and Tony Pulis as their respective managers, it would have sounded entirely plausible. Not quite so predictable was which manager went to which club.

Pulis, the specialist in Premier League survival, has gone to the club looking for promotion from the Championship, while Carvalhal, the man who took a team to the Championship playoff final...

Comfortable win over Swansea eases Liverpool's congested festive period

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three quick thoughts from Anfield as Liverpool beat Swansea City 5-0 in the Premier League on Tuesday.

1. Liverpool ease past Swans

Jurgen Klopp has been quick to point out the flaws in the Premier League scheduling Liverpool's fixtures over the festive period. The Reds boss was bemused that, in addition to the normal workload, Liverpool's games with Leicester City and Burnley had just 48 hours in between them. As a result, the number of games in a short space of time...

If Swansea avoid relegation it'll be due to new players, not new manager

With Swansea manager Paul Clement being sacked, the FC crew debate if Tony Pulis would be a reasonable replacement.

Swansea City's decision to dismiss Paul Clement felt entirely inevitable simply because sacking the manager has become the go-to solution when a club is struggling, regardless of whether he's actually done anything wrong. Yet they're in a relatively unusual situation because they have a fine defensive record and a very poor attacking record. In this situation, a quick fix is considerably more difficult than when a new manager inherits a leaky defence but a decent attack.

So far, 2017-18 has...

Louis van Gaal, Tony Pulis, Ronald Koeman among bosses linked with Swansea

With Swansea manager Paul Clement being sacked, the FC crew debate if Tony Pulis would be a reasonable replacement.
Paul Clement evaluates Swansea's failure to hang on at Everton, as his side remains at the bottom of the Premier League.

Swansea City sacked head coach Paul Clement on Wednesday night.

The 45-year-old paid the price for a run of poor results that left the Swans rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, four points from safety.

Here are some of the contenders to replace him.

Louis van Gaal

Could Swansea City be added to the illustrious list of clubs that former Ajax, Barcelona and Manchester United boss Van Gaal has coached? According to the Daily Mirror, it is a possibility. The 66-year-old has been out of work...

Swansea's bleak December: Three managers sacked in three years

Paul Clement has become the third to lose his job in this month.

Swansea's sacking of Paul Clement was the third successive December that they have dismissed their manager. Here, we look at how December has become the bleakest of months for managers at the Liberty Stadium.

Garry Monk, December 2015

Former Swansea captain Monk had a real rollercoaster ride in his 20 months in charge.

Monk took over from Michael Laudrup in February 2014 and led Swansea to a Premier League-best finish of eighth in the 2014-15 campaign with a record 56-point tally.

But Swansea's...
