Chairman's column: Ipswich

6th October 2018

Read Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins' programme notes for today's clash with Ipswich Town.

Welcome to the Liberty Stadium for this afternoon’s fixture with Ipswich Town.

This game provides Graham Potter, his staff and our squad with a chance to maintain the current run of form and build momentum moving forward.

Some of the football we have watched over the last two games has been a breath of fresh air at times compared to the survival battle we had all become accustomed to watching during our last few seasons in the Premier League.

It’s very early days yet but I’m sure everyone will agree we are certainly moving in the right direction as a football club on the field once more.

Graham has settled into his job at Swansea City with ease and has already shown he can get the team playing the sexy, winning football we had become used to watching over many years. More importantly, he has reintroduced the football identity that our football club had become renowned for all over Europe.

The Championship season is long and testing – there is a lot of football to be played, which I am sure we will enjoy over the months ahead – and consistency is a key factor for successful teams.

We all hope Graham can continue to guide the team to more positive results, starting today.

A warm welcome to all directors, staff, players and supporters of Ipswich Town who have made the long journey to South West Wales for today’s game.

Ipswich have been a strong, well-run football club for many years and I’m sure everyone connected to the team will be looking forward to getting their season going in the right direction after a difficult start to this current campaign.

Today’s game is our 12th match of the current Championship season before the league enters an international break, which will give the squad a week’s rest.

We will have several players representing their nations, which is always a proud moment for Swansea City, but upon their return we will be looking forward to hopefully building momentum once more.

Enjoy the game
