    Swansea v Sheff Utd

    The Blades are back in town after a brief affair with the big boys. They had an amazing first season in the Premier League but then suffered second season syndrome and slumped dramatically to relegation.
    However they’ve retained most of their players, two in particular are of interest to us, McBurnie and Brewster. We wish them good luck as ex-Swans players but only after today’s encounter.
    Swans fans are allowed back in for the first time in numbers and it will be exciting to see the Russell Martin revolution first hand. After that resounding win in mid-week with the new playing style the players should be full of confidence.
    Both teams with new leaders and new ideas, both teams lost their first league match, both teams desperate for a first league win.
    The match is on Sky Sports for those that can’t make it, hence the inconvenient late Saturday night kick off time of 8pm.

    Looked weak up front and didn’t get a corner until the 78th minute.
    Early days but I like the possession based football being played, hopefully the goals will come.
    I laughed at the Blades supporters chanting that we couldn’t fill our stadium, they didn’t realise it was capped at 16,000 on the night.
    Same for the Stoke game, then Hull next home match we are allowed a full house.
