Why on earth did we ever drop Kacaniklic from the starting lineup?

Because he was losing confidence .
A couple of poor performances .
An ineffective CM.
And Berba harassing him with every mistake.
A couple of months away probably did him some good .

Will fans stop moaning about fans who moan. You just bring us all down. Enjoy the win but stop moaning about other fans. It does nothing but divide us when we all can enjoy the win, some of us without thinking it was a wonderful World beating performance.

The irony.

They mentioned on SKY that Swansea won only one of their final ten games, I don't know how many they've drawn.  If a few of their stars get itchy feet, it could halt their progress, I think Williams will move on soon.

Great win and a breath of fresh air after all the negativity. However, this result shouldn't overshadow the need for major reinforcements in the summer.

NIce to get a win, but let's be honest, we we're awful.

Peabody says, "from the sound of it, our defence played well". That may be true, from the sound of it, but watching it, our defence was a shambles. The back four were never moving as a unit and regularly passed the ball to Swansea players. At one point in the second half they had had 11 shots on target to our 2 - and we were 1-0 up at the time. If they'd actually fired at any part of the goal instead of Mark's chest they could easily have been cruising by half time.

The bright spot was Kaka, who looked very good.

I wouldn't have been too pleased if he 'shock' my hand!  064.gif

I actually get the felling Berbs really likes Kaca, I donno but he seems to have more time for his mistakes than he does for some others like Karagounis.

they turned us over 2-1 at our place in very similar fashion and this board was full os people moaning that day about how poor we were in front of goal and how much more effective they were in possession. Now we do the same to them and we get people moaning about our performance. We've just beaten a solid mid table prem team 3-0 away from home with some really nice goals as well. Lets just leave it as a nice victory to end the season and not try to put a downer on it please.

This was a match thread and was there for fans to give opinions about the match. The only downer for a depressed fan like me who was happy with the result was the moaning by those who wanted to ignore the performance and moan about other fans.

which is exactly what you're doing right now as well. I agree though in earnest that we should all just be proud of a good away win on the weekend not using it as another stick to attempt to batter the team with. There's enough of those from the rest of the season.

so on a brighter note Bryan looked lovely as well on the weekend, some of his work in the build up to the first and second goals was delightful.

So, those of us who want to celebrate a good away win by imploring those who don't want to celebrate, to join us in our celebrations, are missing something, like the performance. Yichang is of course nonsense. Obviously the performance is important, though not as important as the result and maybe, just maybe we don't agree with the total negativity.
