Michel Vorm: Swansea City goalkeeper pleased to be back training

The 26-year-old has scored 10 goals in 15 Premier League appearances for the Swans, and was on target twice in their 2-0 away at Arsenal on Saturday.

Vorm is pleased with his team-mate's display and is impressed with the Spaniard's calm in front of goal.

"I don't think many people knew much about Michu before he joined Swansea," he told Sky Sports News.

"I think his great strength is that he is calm in front of goal. He is always there at the right time. His left foot is amazing and he is good for the club."

Vorm has recently returned to training after recovering from a torn groin muscle and is raring to resume competitive action.

"I missed a couple of games and I have been pleased with what I have seen [of the team during this period]," he said. "I have enjoyed the boys' performance and am happy to see what they have done.

"I am also happy be outside today (training)."

Vorm then backed Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins' intention to make new signings in January to reinforce the squad.

"I think to stay where we are, we need to be steady and get better and compete with the rest of the teams," said the 29-year-old. "So we need better players to reach a higher level."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
