"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

First quick turnaround of the season may lead to a change or two. I do think Swansea will want to make a statement after a sluggish start to their attempt to go straight back up so I don't see them using negative tactics and it should be an open game

Just a short trek down the M4 for me tomorrow, Swansea will be full of energy but are fairly inexperienced, if we can get an early goal I don’t think they will react well, main threat will be MacBurnie but keep him quiet and we should be too strong for them,

Think he played against us for Barnsley last year, showed some promise tbf but 64 won't be quaking in his boots

You lucky man

I'm leaving here at 9.15am & don't expect to return home until Wednesday morning at 4am, no doubt the M42 & M1 will be closed for roadworks & we'll be diverted all around the back of beyond. Enjoy the game Newport :tup:

Too right mate I wasn't that impressed but you never know, Swansea may up the anti with McBurnnie proving me wrong! You only have to look at Roofe's form, twice the player he was now he's playing in Bielsa's team, he has been sensational :-D

I don't think Bielsa will change the team

He may do for the Norwich game pending how the Swansea game pans out

I think we'll see one or two changes. Pontus might get a start next to Cooper and I think that we could see one of he wingers (probably Pablo) given a rest in favour of Harrison/Baker.

Hopefully we'll keep the intensity up and catch them napping.

On telly as well I believe.

Roofe is ok after the ice pack the other day, Jansson is out injured and wont play vs Swansea.

i may actually be able to comment on a game for the first time as i will see in Walkabout Chelmsford!
I am sure MB will want to keep the tempo up and go for the win
He will also be mindful that 2nd half Bolton and 1st Rotherham werent what he is looking for so good news for us
My my my, such a lot of guns around town and so few brains

Would have thought so.

A shame for Pontus to have another setback in getting into the team. Hopefully it's just a tweak and he'll be back in training quickly.
