Michael Laudrup: Pleased with Swansea's performances despite poor results

The Swans are on a run of six matches without a victory - their worst spell of form since promotion to the Premier League almost two years ago.

Despite the recent stutter, Laudrup is happy with performance levels and is confident the Capital One Cup holders will secure a top 10 finish.

"We have gone over a month and a half without winning and we are still ninth in the table - that's incredible," said Laudrup.

"But I think that just shows you how we overachieved before this run. It depends how you look at things, but to have 40 points so early on as well as the cup - nobody would have expected that.

"The fixtures since then have not been an easy. We have played Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea and we still have the two Manchester (teams) to go.

"But I really can't say we have been poor since the cup final - not in any one of our games. We have been poor in moments but once again I can't say that we played poorly overall.

"It's always important to try to end a season well because it is good for confidence, but I can't say our performances have not been good."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
