Swansea success not down to just one man

It was good to see Swans-Arsenal being the featured match in today's Independent Sport. However, I would take issue on a couple of points. Firstly, although I wasn't at the match and couldn't pick out any crowd singing on the highlights on "Match of the Day 2", I will wager that it was not "Land of my Fathers" that was being sung, but "Hymns and Arias".

Secondly, although no praise can be too high for Brendan Rodgers, we should not forget the chairman and board of the club for picking a manager who matched their ideals of passing football. It was this same board who gave Roberto Martinez his major break in management for the same reason. It is sad to see Martinez's present club, Wigan Athletic, struggling in the Premier League but all credit to Wigan's board for sticking by him.
