Swansea 3-1 Stoke City
Dire performance as we again seem content to sit back and defend which cost us again today. Our once redoubtable defence has now shipped seven goals in the past two Premier League games. Michael Owen bagged his first goal for us – and his 150th Premier League goal – as some consolation for an otherwise forgettable match for us.
Kenwyne Jones started on the bench and came on as a sub for possibly his last appearance in a Stoke shirt? Swansea have had a bid rejected so far.
Stoke have FC Dallas player Brek Shea over for a week’s trial with a view to a permanent deal. He is only 22 and a left-sided utility player. Rumours are that a fee has already been agreed with the club.
