So, moving on to a more important game…

In all seriousness, the Merseyside Derby match was awful, and I for one am glad that we’re moving past it without too much embarrassment having occurred.

I’m taking over from Mr. Hives until the end of the season, as the guy has taken a much needed early holiday. Until he returns you’re stuck with me, and I will try to be more positive than my predecessor.

Swansea have become a much improved side under Carlos Carvalhal since he replaced Paul Clement in December, however they are winless in three in the Premier League, having lost to Manchester United and drawn with West Brom and Huddersfield.

Any money this ends up being dire…

Anyways, let’s crack on with the line-up, my line-up, of which Sam Allardyce will certainly not choose to field.
