Michu hoping lightning strikes twice

8th February 2013

Michu will be hoping that lightning can strike twice at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Spaniard has been a revelation since his summer switch from Rayo Vallecano, netting 16 goals for the Swans so far in his debut season in English football.

The first two of those strikes came on the opening day against Saturday's opponents, Queens Park Rangers.

That 5-0 win at Loftus Road was the perfect start for both the Swans - and Michu - in what is already shaping up to be a historic campaign.

But after failing to find the net in his last six outings, the striker stated he is hoping that he can get back amongst the goals this afternoon after speaking to Jack Magazine, the official matchday programme for the Barclays Premier League clash against Queens Park Rangers.

"I don't think about the goals," he said. "Against Stoke I didn't score and we won - and that is good enough for me.

"It's difficult for me to score at the moment but I'm working on it during training and I want to score more goals for Swansea.

"We are not finding the way to goal easy at the moment, teams are making it difficult for us. But hopefully we can score a couple (against QPR).

"Their team has changed a lot since the first game of the season. It will be a difficult game but I think we can find the spaces because they need to come here and win.

"If we win then we move on to 37 points and we are practically safe - that is much better for us.

Also in this weekend's 76-page edition of Jack Magazine, we caught up with club stalwarts Leon Britton and Garry Monk as the duo put pen to paper on new contracts this week.

As well as this, we have match reports from Sunderland and West Ham, as well as looking ahead to the next home game at the Liberty against Newcastle United.

Gerhard Tremmel answers your questions in our 'Fans' Mailbag' feature and we take a look back at former Swans from years gone by in our 'Where Are They Now?' section, as Ian Walsh takes centre stage.

And if that wasn't enough for you, in keeping with the centenary celebrations we have a special feature in every programme this season that charts the history of the Swans in bite-size instalments.

The new-look bumper 76-page magazine is a must for every Swans fan and will be available around the ground, the club shop and online, plus Slee Stores in Plasmarl, Coggers on Wind Street and Browns Newsagent in Landore.

Jack Magazine . . . it really is too good to miss.
