This was another tight game where the narrative could have gone any way, from disappointing defeat if Newcastle had taken one of the numerous chances in the second half or a well earned point if the first half Swansea performance was taken into consideration and the game had ended goalless.
In the end it was a slightly fortuitous three points thanks to Luke Moore's late winner. With the magical 40 point mark now reached, it'd be good to see who in the squad is worth keeping so it may be we won't get to see Shechter break his duck.
As I've mentioned previously (such as after the win at Arsenal), Moore has something about him but there also seems to be that extra something missing that would turn him from an OK to a great player. If that something can be coaxed out over the summer then I think him and Michu could work really well together even if it's just as a regular 'super-sub'.
The Newcastle game was another game where Swansea started well creating chances and having plenty of the ball, the second half was more Newcastle although most of their attempts, although good opportunities were not clear cut chances.

An extra 3-5 set piece goals over the course of the season could be one of the things to look out for in terms of improvement next season.
