Some impressive stats there. More tackles per game than Parker, more assists than anyone else at Fulham (despite his short time there. The goals scored & conceded per game when he is and isn't in the team shows what a huge influence in attack and defense he is having.

Can't wait until he is back next season.

I hope whoever is in charge next season gives him a run of games. I was sad to see him shipped out but long term it could have been one of the best things from this season. he's played more than he would've under TS, settled into London and EPL. Next season he could be immense for us.

Rumours down this way that if Moyes goes too Swansea Holtby & Gylfi could be his first signings.
I don't know if Holtby would be allowed to go under a new manager who ahsn't had a chance to take a look at him??

Can only see him going that soon if Tim stays a.k.a the unthinkable.

I thought Swansea were very protective over their identity? Moyes doesn't seem to fit in with the style of football they want to promote.
Club has been a shambles this Season mate worse than ours

Laudrup tried to build a team around michu not thinking he could get injured, michu is now injured seriously again and looks like he's back off to Spain in the summer for a lot less than the 30 million arsenal nearly paid for him. He's been there almost all season anyways picking up mega bucks. Wouldn't surprise me if Bony starts agitating soon but that's a different story I'm not getting into.
In house fighting everywhere British players want monk in full time spaniards don't for obvious reasons just google Chico monk.
Just about to move to a new training ground full time had a big awakening thinking that they were a mainstream premier league team already with this seasons poor form Laudrup started a cancer within the club that's taking a lot to get rid of. Then you have the panic buys they signed in jan to shift it's ultimate chaos. Board are torn between monk and another continental manager or moyes (see him as guaranteeing them a premier league status).

Ah right, thanks for clearing that up. Didn't realise it was such a shambles! First thing that came up when I typed 'chico monk' was - 'chico monk BRICK'!!

Good to see there are worst shambles in the prem that what has been going on at spurs this season though (y)

Trust me that's not half of it , a few players have major problems that would surprise you prey were not one of the teams that goes for bony the Christmas party was fun! Talk about cliques just can't be line how complacent everyone in that club has got! Credit to monk to be fair for stabilising it a bit and getting everyone united again things seem a lot better recently. Wouldn't be surprised even if monk gets the job if he doesn't go for gylfi everybody at Swansea from the fans too the chairman idolise him! When michu leaves I think he would be the perfect replacement to keep the fans happy monk even rates our dear old Naughton haha!

First off, I've read the excellent posts by @agrdavidsfan , so I'm not in any way dismissing them (y)

As for the bit in bold, that is precisely why Laudrup was removed from his position, assuming Huw Jenkins was telling the truth.

''Collectively as a board we assessed every aspect surrounding the way our first-team staff and squad was working on a day-to-day basis."

''Without going into detail, it was clear to all of our directors that the strong principles we have had at Swansea City over the last 10 years were slowly being eroded." http://www.itv.com/sport/football/a...kins-explains-reasons-behind-laudrup-sacking/

As you say, Swansea have a model, one which they believe is best for them. I also don't see Moyes fitting that model.

what he meant by this the aspect of it being a family club with a strong identity laudrup wanted full power all side projects shut down wanted the transfer cash. Wanted to get rid of staff that had been at Swansea all their life's and replace them with foreign friends
Would explain more but I would get easily traced if it got into public domain!

Holtby subbed by Magath after 33 minutes in crunch game against the neanderthals of Stoke.

McInally says tactical, Holtby not injured.

Magath is a really strange manager

Holtby started really really well with Fulham playing behind the striker or one of the 2 CM

then all of a sudden in the last 2 games he plays him on the right wing and expect him to go up and down the line

really strange manager with a lot of his selections . playing Burn RB when Riether is fit ,Dejagah in and out of the team , each game different striker .......
