Liverpool 4 - Swans 3 Stats and Chalkboards

What after 20 minutes looked like it might end up us a rout, turned into another performance of a tempo and attitude that had been lacking under Laudrup.  Monk may well go on to achieve great things with Swansea but sometimes a large part of any change is just not being like the old guy in charge.

Obviously no player is going to come out and say 'I preferred it under Laudrup' but there genuinely does seem to be a greater sense that things are being done 'The Swansea Way' with increased width and pace. Obviously all this optimism could disappear pretty quickly if results against the likes of Palace and Norwich go against us but so far, so good.
Shots by Minute: 5 Goals from the first 12 shots in the match shows it was a pretty unusual match.  Swans with only 2 efforts in the last half hour
With games coming thick and fast (and half term eating up my time), I'm not going to go into too much detail on this one but recommend links below for more details:

Liverpool FC - Interactive Chalkboards.  Liverpool one of the few (possibly only) that have interactive chalkboards for their games on their website.
