The Swansea fans left the Etihad with a sense of pride despite the defeat to Manchester City; their team was able to push the champions all the way.
The swans were so unlucky not to get anything from a game in which they dominated the majority of the play.
Fans after the game were pleased with the performance, but believe the team need to now push on and get some more wins under their belts.
Claire Butler, a Swans fan from Morriston said: “I was chuffed with the way we played, considering they are the Champions, we were the better side for most of the game.
“But if we don’t perform like this every week and don’t get some wins, then I think we could be facing a relegation battle this season.”
Steven Doyle, a supporter of Swansea for over 60 years added: “We were so unlucky; we pushed them all the way. It just shows how far we have come since last season.
“The team has been playing well, just not getting the right results, but I think Laudrup has the players and ideas to push us on now.”
Any team that changes managers will take time to settle together as a club, especially when so many new faces have come in over the summer, and so many gone out.
Brian Thompson, a builder from Swansea, said: “I think Laudrup has done a great job, brought in some quality signings, and will give us enough to stay up.
“I prefer him to Rodgers; he has better tactics, better contacts and is well loved by all. Rodgers could never have brought in the players he has.
“The lads are still learning about each other, but soon I think we will be getting results in games like these.
“We won’t go down, we’re too good too. The lads will take heart from this game and push on and really start challenging teams.”
The Welsh side put in such a positive performance against the reigning Champions that many fans are now more optimistic about this season, and particularly the next two games.
The Swans now travel to Liverpool in mid-week for a Capital One cup clash with former boss, Brendan Rodgers Liverpool side, before hosting Chelsea on Saturday.
Mike Mannings, a self-proclaimed ‘real supporter’ of the club said: “I reckon we can win at Liverpool in the cup. Rodgers will try out a lot of kids, and this will give us the advantage to get a win.
“And if we perform like that against Chelsea, back in Swansea with all our fans, I think we can get a result, probably a draw.”
The main talking point to come out of the City game for the Swans is the groin injury picked up by ‘keeper Michel Vorm, one that could keep him out of action for six to eight weeks.
A student from Swansea, Callum Evans said: “He is one of the best keepers in the league, I’m gutted he’s injured.
“He was one of our star performers last season, hopefully he can get fit soon and help the team, he will be missed.”
The team must now look to push on, gain momentum and get results. After such a promising start the team went downhill rapidly.
But if they perform every week like they did against the champions then they will get the results.
The only assured thing is that the Swansea fans will be behind their team 100%, signing, cheering and supporting them on wherever they play.
