A season in tweets: Swansea

MODEL MANAGER – After winning the Capital One Cup, Michael Laudrup has set his sights on beating Hansel to the ‘Male Model of the Year’ award

A sudden dose of dreaded ‘second season syndrome’ is the big fear for Swansea ahead of Michael Laudrup’s second campaign at the helm. Having been ‘kind-of-but-not-really’ linked to a couple of jobs during the off-season, the Danish manager went about the task of improving his squad and he may not have done a bad job of it.

Wilfried Bony is the headline signing and if you’re the type of person who gets excited by performances in pre-season friendlies and Europa League qualifiers, he looks world class. If you’re the type of person who doesn’t, he looks sharp and immensely promising. Jonathan de Guzmán is back for another season and Jonjo Shelvey may not be as bad as he looked at Liverpool, two more reasons for optimism to varying degrees. If they can continue last year’s form, more progress is possible. If not, they’ll probably still be able to finish ahead of Cardiff.

Overly optimistic pre-season tweet:
