Wilmot VDH Knaughton
back three helps to hopefully cut out cheap goal give aways
Roberts and Bidwell can concentrate on attacking overlaps as neither have been great in defence this season overall
Celina and TC can provide hopefully quality amunition
And the attacking threat of Borja then is provided by including Kalulu and Peterson to provide the crosses and as both have shown to cut inside. and assist Borja
Defencive duties for Kalulu and Peterson being restricted as they have Roberts and Bidwell behind them.
This set up gives safety at the back with 3 CD, extra cover being able to advance and assist midfield
Attacking wingbacks assisting the creation of amount of additional pressure from both flanks.
Celina and TC would not need to stay purely defensive and would allow either to advance into the 10 role behind Borja.
It also allow Kalulu and Peterson to concentrate on showing their attacking prowess and assist qualities to Borja who we all know is capable of scoring
At he same time Blackburn although playing away, having seen Swans lose last four home games, may likely be less cautious and try an attacking game which also allows us to play a fast counter attacking game with this set up
Mind you I am no football manager
So just an opinion

So you reckon that the Club was run sensibly when in the Premier, League,without excess,over- priced transfer fees shelled out, and excessive wages paid to the signings?.Not my Impression.
We were all at fault for wanting to be part of the madness.
For me they gambled with the future in the hope of survival and staying on the gravy train,and quite obviously lost
Cooper said he was supposed to start in the first cup game but picked up a knock which led to the Dhanda/Byers midfield and de Boer sub appearance. Carroll was then fit for the second round so he only got to come off the bench for his debut. Contrast with Cabango who having been fit for the first round kept his place in the B team throughout.
Was good tonight. Good in possession and put his foot in well.
I did think at the beginning of the season that the team appeared to be more balanced in terms of the personnel covering the positions, but the question is now how have they improved the overall effectiveness of the squad. What we seem to be lacking are game changers. Dan James springs to mind for last season. No one Immediately springs to mind at the moment.
In March this year and with a midfield trio of Fulton, Byers and Celina (Grimes played centre half that day) Swansea City played Man City off the park (well, we at least matched them). McBurnie didn't play, so Dan is the only obvious difference.
The major difference is in how the manager set them up to play and the confidence the players had in being able to deliver his game plan.
