The Swans thoroughly outclassed Bradford at Wembley to take their first big title in their 100 year history. The scoreline tells you the story as much as the other stats. 78% possession to 22%, 10 shots on target to just the one, 8 corners to just the one.
Matt Duke was sent off for his challenge on Nathan Dyer and as he was walking off, Dyer started a jawing back and forth with Jonathan De Guzman on who would take the penalty providing the most tense moments of this already decided final. Dyer had a strong case because he was on a hattrick but De Guzman was the designated penalty taker. Michu had to mediate, counseling the diminutive Dyer to back off. Fortunately, De Guzman managed to convert otherwise this could have been a locker room talking point.
Now comes the hard part on retaining Michael Laudrup who has been linked with a number of clubs ranging from Chelsea to Real Madrid. He's also on the wishlist of many Arsenal fans.
By the way, the final was not shown in any of the networks here. The focus was firmly on the Premiership. That is utterly bollocks.
