Today's media round-up

1st December 2014

Today's media round-up includes a range of stories following the weekend's action.
Wilfried Bony told the South Wales Evening Post that team matters mean more than personal glory after he scored in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at the Liberty.
The Daily Star, meanwhile, has linked Bony with a move to Manchester City.
Wales Online got the thoughts of Swans skipper Ashley Williams on the stalemate with the Eagles while The Mirror is reporting the Swans wish to take Arsenal striker Joel Campbell on loan in January.

Bony puts the team before personal glory
South Wales Evening Post

Wilfried Bony insists his personal achievements mean nothing if Swansea City do not win.
The Ivory Coast international scored his sixth Premier League goal of the season against Crystal Palace on Saturday to put Swansea 1-0 up.
But that lead lasted just 10 minutes as Mile Jedinak equalised from the penalty spot.
That led to a frustrating afternoon for Swansea, who were not able to break down their stubborn opponents after that.
Bony has netted 18 times in the top flight during 2014, more than any other player.
But the striker insists individual milestones are irrelevant if his team do not claim maximum points.
"That's good, but it is not bringing the team three points which is a great pity," said Bony.
"I really don't care about statistics. I want to score every game and win every game.
"I just try to do my best and take the chance if I can."

Swans quickly need to learn the lessons of two points dropped against Crystal Palace

Ashley Williams admitted there was no need for a team-talk at the break, or even at full-time. Most of the players would have known what was coming.
Certainly there was a case of having seen this one before; a draw that was deja vu all over again.
"It's frustrating and anyone who follows Swansea City will have seen that many a time over the years," said the Swans skipper. "We had the chances to make sure that didn't happen but there's not much more to say about it. It's self-explanatory really.
"We need to learn the lessons quickly but the annoying thing is we already knew. We didn't even need a team talk at half-time or at the end because we knew what happened and what this was."

Manchester City target Swansea star Wilfried Bony
Daily Star

Manchester City are interested in Swansea powerhouse Wilfried Bony.
The striker, 25, is due to join up with City's Yaya Toure for Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations in January but he is still eligible to play in the Champions League should City progress.
Bony came close to joining Liverpool last summer only for Brendan Rodgers to baulk at his wage demands and instead move for Loic Remy then Mario Balotelli.
Swansea have agreed a new contract with the man they signed for £12million from Vitesse in 2013.
But they are expecting top-six clubs to show interest and will look to make a profit, with his value around £20m.

The five things we've learned this weekend in the Premier League
Daily Star

If Swansea could hold a lead...
For the second week running, Wilfried Bony scored early to give Swansea a lead.
But for the second week running, they couldn't hold it.
Last week, Manchester City came back to beat them 2-1, while on Saturday Crystal Palace equalised with a penalty and held out for a 1-1 draw.
Few Swans fans will complain too much, not with their side sitting seventh just three points off the top four, but their habit of dropping points from winning positions must be of concern to Garry Monk.
They've now let 13 points slip through their fingers. Add those to their tally, and they'd be one point behind leaders Chelsea.

January wishlist! Who wants who in the transfer window that could make or break a season
Daily Express

Wishlist: Wamberto.
WHAT THEY NEED: Nothing, really. Just for key players like Wilfried Bony and Ashley Williams to stay fit. Swansea have one of the best teams in their history.
Verdict: Can sit this transfer window out.

Swansea eyeing January transfer of Arsenal outcast Joel Campbell
The Mirror

Swansea City have joined the queue of clubs ready to take Joel Campbell on loan in January.
Swans boss Garry Monk is keen on the Arsenal forward who is likely to be allowed to go out on loan to get him more regular games.
Everton and West Brom are also keen on the Costa Rican international who has barely had a look-in at Arsenal despite his impressive form in the World Cup.
Campbell is well down the pecking order at the Emirates and is frustrated at not playing more, especially when they wouldn't let him go out on loan last summer.
