I feel sorry for Swansea, its hard when you get beat by lower league opposition.But can you blame people for coming and having a giggle on your board?Every day, WUMS invade the Leeds board and have a gloat, even worse if we get beat by the likes of Cheltenham and Carlise.

Monk had a shocker last night (probably worried about De Vries's towel) but he's been consistantly good all season, Lawrence in my opinion has been the opposite, constantly poor, almost guaranteed to make a howler once a game. Watching the highlights last night Leighton James agrees, Lawrence couldn't handle it.
I've never rated Lawrence that highly, and he has more 'off' games than he has good.
"Lawrence in my opinion has been the opposite, constantly poor"I'm sorry but that's blatant scapegoating. He's done OK. Not great, but OK. Certainly nowhere near as bad as the boo boys would have you believe. I've lost count of the number of last minute tackles and interceptions that he makes, vital defensive instances that get completely ignored.Sure, we will certainly need better if we go up, and probably even if we don't, but we're top of the league with a solid defensive record. That simply does not happen if one of your main central defenders is "constantly poor".
The Swans have got great strikers, a great midfield but jittery, sometimes awful defenders. Lawrence in particular is so laid back that my grandmother's afternoon snooze looks like an action packed thriller! Come on Martinez get out there and buy a no nonsense central defender who can command the area and take no prisoners otherwise Dennis the Menace will cost us promotion before the end of the season. The other alternative is to put Tate in alongside Monk. Keep your heads up boys, you're better than last night's appalling performance.
I just hope they bounce back from this. Playing Liverpool at Anfield would have been a great day for the team, but the main priority mucst be gaining promotion to the Championship. They still have the chance of a day out at Wembley in the Johnstone Paint Trophy.
what an embarrassment. i would bet a lot of money on the Swans blowing promotion now!
LUFC 93:Have a laugh now while you can, because you won't be laughing come the end of the season, when the 'Mighty Whites' fail to go up, alongside the Jacks.Martinez or Wise ? - No contest mate
Hope Dave Kitson has seen this result, he will then understand, when he plays at the lower level, what the FA Cup means to a Footballer.
