SWANSEA, Wales -- Three thoughts from Manchester United's 4-0 win vs. Swansea City.
1. United sweep Swans aside
Two games, six points, eight goals scored, none conceded. Manchester United's performance against Swansea City perhaps did not quite match the 4-0 scoreline, but Jose Mourinho's side have started the season in clinical style. In two games, they have now reached 15 percent of their goals tally from last term. Not bad at all.
Goals from Eric Bailly and Romelu Lukaku, a fabulous Paul Pogba...
And so the Gylfi Sigurdsson saga finally ends. While Swansea have lost their all-time Premier League goals and assists leader, they have recouped a club-record £45 million fee, which could fix several seasons of subpar recruitment at a stroke. How Swansea deal with the departure of their star man and how they reinvest the money will now play a huge role in determining the club's future.
This is Swansea's "Gareth Bale money", equivalent (adjusting for stature) to the time Spurs sold their...

Is Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson worth £50 million? Swansea seem to think so, and Everton appear ready to pay something close to that, having had a previous £40m bid rebuffed.
Swansea's logic for a price almost £20m higher than what James Rodriguez might cost Bayern Munich is simple. Without the Icelandic playmaker's nine goals and 13 assists last season, the Liberty Stadium would be hosting Championship rather than Premier League football in August. As such, any attempts...
These are troubled times for South Korea. Son Heung-Min and Ki Sung-Yeung are not only in danger of missing the start of the new Premier League season, but could be absent, or short of fitness, for do-or-die 2018 AFC World Cup qualifiers against Iran and Uzbekistan, starting next month.
