Swans Must Be Prepared To Shell Out

Den Haag could be in for a payout of close to £1 million from Swansea City if Ferrie Bodde is sold this summer for the asking price.

Roberto Martinez got the player on the cheap, £50,000 rising to £85,000 in a deal ....

Scotland Will Carry On Scoring

Swansea’s goal machine Jason Scotland feels sure that he can carry on scoring at a higher level when the Swans embark on a new season in the Championship next term. The £25,000 capture has netted 29 goals so far this season and he looks set to head the top scorers list at the Liberty Stadium. There is no doubt that he has done a fantastic job of replacing Lee Trundle’s goals and if he could do the same next term, the Swans should be able to hold their own in the ....

It Won't Be Easy Says Boss

Swansea manager Roberto Martinez is warning that a victory over Yeovil Town tomorrow is not a foregone conclusion as he knows that teams are raising their game when they play the Swans.

A full house is expected at the Liberty Stadium tomorrow with just 400 of them being Yeovil fans, but even though the Swans will ....

Martinez Praise For Scotland

Roberto Martinez has been singing the praises of hot shot Jason Scotland who is heading ever closer to a 30 goal season after finding it hard to take over from Lee Trundle. Scotland deserves to be the fanís favourite as far as Martinez is concerned but that is something that is a little slow in coming after having four years of the Scouse genius beforehand. Trundle was full of tricks and had a way of winning the crowd over when he turned it on, Scotland cannot do the same things that ....
