    Swans v Millwall

    At last back to league action with the first home game for a month. Last home game we beat Cardiff 1-0. Millwall are yet to win away this season but have the new manager factor which always helps. Gary Rowett is his name the ex-Stoke manager, fired last January after a run of poor results.
    Swans have no new injury issues, with Surridge back in training and Kalulu playing with the U-23ís tonight v Fulham.
    With three games in the next seven days Cooper will have to use his squad wisely.

    Another team that's sussed our tactics. With a high press stopping us passing out from the back, out-numbered in midfield and some giant players the result was certain. It's happened four times at home now and we have no idea how to counteract it.

    To be fair as a lions fan I think you were lucky to be only 1 goal down as van Horn was lucky not to be red carded. What surprises me is that with all your parachute payments why you have to sell off the likes of James and McBurnie, really great players. Good to see you down the Den for a great atmosphere, the Liberty was a bit quiet.

    claw84 - the team you played is a mere shadow of its former self, through the decimation of players since our demise from the PL.
    Over 30 players have been dumped, some for half their value or less. All thatís left are players from the Academy, and players we canít get rid of, with a sprinkling of no fee loan players.
    Parachute payments and transfer fees have been gobbled up by our very rich but greedy American hedge fund owners, desperate to get back the money they paid to buy the club plus a fat profit. They will sell anything that moves and in January they will be selling more players again if they possibly can. They have not invested one single dollar into the club and since they took over theyíve been an unmitigated disaster. They took us from an established PL club to an average Championship club, and still falling. Once the last parachute payment is received they will run away and look elsewhere for the next sucker and some more easy pickings, itís what they do.

    Hi claw84
    It was impossible to keep James and McBurnie once their heads were turned.
    Our owners were desperate to cash in on any of our players anyway, and at any price, and we nearly gave James away to Leeds for only £8 million last January. If it wasn't for the chairman not answering his phone to Leeds he would have gone then.

    We were unable to break down Millwall’s strong defence. I thought it was a harsh free kick for the goal.
