Garry Monk: Unhappy with life on the bench

Garry Monk: Unhappy with life on the bench

The 33-year-old, who arrived from Barnsley in the summer of 2004, insisted he wanted to stick around to fight for his place, despite being unhappy with making four league appearances all season.

And with the January transfer window potentially opening up opportunities to move on, the former Southampton and Sheffield Wednesday full-back said: "Swansea are my club, I've been here nine years.

"I do not want to go elsewhere so I am not really thinking about that right now. If there are options I will wait to see what the manager's thoughts are.

"I am in the squad and when I have played I think I have done well, but until I have spoken to the manager I can't say much.

"A lot depends on who the club bring in during the window and what the manager thinks. I feel fit and ready to play. Like every player on the bench you feel a bit wasted on the bench and that you could be doing a job for the team.

"I just make sure I am professional and train hard so that when I am called

upon I am ready."

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.
