Swans Swans Swans Swans? Poor Barnsley

Swans Swans Swans Swans? Poor Barnsley

A laughable performance from Barnsley allowed Swansea City to breeze past a Tykes side who look destined for League One.

Roberto Martinez even admitted after the game that his side didn't even play that well.

Barnsley fans dread to think what would have happened to their team should the away side have put in a half-decent performance.

It was all talk for Barnsley's big Easter weekend as once again the Club let its fans down.

A nightmare start for the Reds saw the Swans take an easy lead on two minutes. Gomez's free-kick that should have been cleared in a routine style was finished by Ashley Williams.

Barnsley may have dominated with posession but simply couldn't find the net, which is the difference between survival and relegation.

Jordi Gomez then doubled Barnsley's misery five minutes before half time. The midfielder danced his way to the edge of the box before his tame effort crept into the bottom corner, Muller was nowhere to be seen.

At half time the Tykes made two changes. Campbell-Ryce and Andranik were replaced by Devaney and Colace.

Jason Scotland couldn't believe his luck when Heinz Muller gifted the frontman his 24th goal of the season. Scotland was embarrassed whilst he tapped home into an empty net.

The Swans were laughing, their fans were dancing, and cries of 'Davey out' came from the home-end.

It was a nothing performance from Barnsley, with only Hassell, Hammill and Kozluk showing their worth.

Daniel Bogdanovic scored a penalty.

Its looking pretty bleak now. Compare our remaining games with Forest and the conclusion looks like we could be a league 1 outfit once again. Desperate times for the Reds. Come on Matty, give me some inspiration, is it really as bad as it looks?! Can Davey really hang onto his job? Is it even his fault? I really dont know whats gone wrong!

The players didn't look interested, so, therefore, there is only one outcome: League One. In this division you get what you deserve, in fact, ESPECIALLY in this division. Nobody has grabbed it by the scruff of the neck. The fact remains that, Barnsley have a better squad than last season, and the division isn't that much better, so I'll leave those with even the least of logic to point the finger at someone or something. Simple isn't it? One game in hand, it's got to be won. We need seven points.

I think 7 points will be almost imposible judging by the remaining fixtures. Forest have the most favourable run in although Norwich seem to have quite a tough one with exception the last game at Charlton. Saints also have a tough run in. I know in reality we are looking at relegation but we can only hope other results go our way from now on. Obviously its no good counting on our own team to come up with the goods. Problem with going down is, how do we hold onto our better players, there sometimes seems to be a lack of loyalty in the sport these days! Lets hope Reading have one of their bad days!

I agree with yorkie, things look pretty bleak. A big ask but you need something from the Coventry game.
