Systems, tactics, mutinies, meetings, crisis, pressure… the only word that mattered in the end was WIN!

The build up to the visit of the Swans to the Etihad Stadium was dominated by a predictably tedious post mortem into the Uefa Champions League defeat in Ajax.

It is a peculiar trait here in England that, unlike our USA cousins, sections of the British sporting public likes nothing better than see top teams humbled. Hence the melodrama that followed the loss of a football match in Amsterdam against a vibrant young Dutch side that played as well as it has for some time.

Given the hyperbole and poisoned barbs following the defeat, there were a lot of questions marks placed against the name of the English champions and their manager.
