I want to pick this out Alan and say how much I agree with your dad, who obviously knows a thing or two about influential players. . I have always felt this to be the case with Sercs and have always felt there is an extra energy and drive about our side when he is a part. Yes I know he has the tendency to run into blind alleys, doesn't offload when he really should and doesn't score as many as he ought to, but for me those other things your dad mentions outweigh any negatives.I will also mention Sercs. My dad - who has seen pretty much every Swans game of the past decade, lucky old chap - saw City a couple of years ago on a day when most of us would've given Liam a 6 or maybe 7 out of 10. Dad's view was that he wanted the ball, was keen to try things, thought he was probably going to score (!) and generally looked like a winner. He's seen lots of great technicians at Swansea, but the ones who make a difference, he claims, are those influential winners - Rangel, Williams, Sigurðsson to name three. I think it's a good point, and just as for my previous City game at home to Tranmere, I am always glad Liam's in our side and some of our more interesting moments stem for his endeavours. So a Tis style, well done him, too.
