'It's the way we want to play'

Jay Fulton reckons Swansea City’s players are savouring the style introduced by Graham Potter.

Potter’s Swans are fast becoming known for the sort of eye-catching football which was the club’s trademark until their latter years in the Premier League.

Reviving the so-called Swansea Way was a key goal for all at the Liberty following relegation from the top flight last season.

And after just a third of the Championship season, Potter’s men have already gone a long way towards achieving that goal.

The Swans’ successes so far in 2018-19 have been as a result of their passing game – and the players have smiles on their faces as a result.

“You can see on the pitch that we are enjoying the way we are playing,” Fulton said.

“Hopefully the fans are enjoying seeing the way we are playing too.

“Some games we will win and sometimes we will get beaten, but I think you can see in every game that we’ve stuck to the way we want to play and more often than not it’s worked so far.

“As players it’s an enjoyable way to play. There are a lot of risks involved but, if we trust each other on the pitch, we can enjoy it.”

Fulton believes Potter’s approach – and his willingness to give youngsters a chance – has been central to the progress made by the Swans so far this season.

“I think the manager has been good with everyone,” he added.

“It was a clean slate for everybody after we were relegated.

“A lot of players left the club over the summer, but it has been great to see the young players coming through.

“I think that has been good for everyone at the club.”
