Inside your Matchday Programme: Swansea City

Sergi Canós the cover star of BEES issue 13

7 December 2018

“Before the game at West Brom we stressed the need to leave everything out there and have no regrets after the full-time whistle. You can lose a game to a better team who perform on the day, but the effort needs to be at maximum every time we take to the pitch.”

“Monday's draw at The Hawthorns was really hard earned - the players proved to any doubters that they have the stomach for a fight and that they care. The team spirit was clear and, although the first half was backs-to-the-wall stuff, the performance in the second period merited the point. We’ve got a very talented group of players and I was delighted for Thomas and all of the squad.”

“Everyone buying an away ticket was offered a free ‘cheer stick’ outside the gates. Presumably so they could be thrown away in disgust before going through the gates. But no, it seems these were intended for use inside Fulham’s ground. Blue and white noise makers with the club helpfully explaining how, ‘Each stick is LCFC-branded and deflates, meaning supporters can take them home as a souvenir after the game.’ Was this the Premier League’s first ‘clapper derby’?”
