Gylfi fires again for Buck’s high-flying swans

Another stunning strike from Swansea’s loan star, caps a total of seven league goals for the once forgotten Reading man, this video clip of his latest goal against Blackburn Rovers, where it is yet another reminder of why Europe’s elite are currently chasing his signature. 

The game was another opportunity for Brendan’s men to remain in contention for a top ten finish, however with the swans heading into the game with a record consisting of three defeats, the game in prospect presented a further stumbling block. Swansea nevertheless, held control for much of the first half with fluid passing again present for much of Swansea’s build up, but it was again the Icelandic international who opened the scoring on the 37th minute with the deftest of finishes that left Paul Robinson no chance. Nathan Dyer made it a second shortly after, with Danny Graham setting up the winger for his fourth goal of the campaign. By then Swansea had ran rampant with an overall possession rate of 67% emphasizing the difference in quality, with the third coming courtesy through an own-goal from Dann, that epitomised Rovers woeful performance.  

Swansea’s win was one which will allayed any relegation fears, with the 40 barrier mark being passed, the club can now look forward to next season, but much of Swansea’s good form at the turn of the new year, should be accredited to the astute capture of Gyfli. As his important goal-scoring contribution, has taken the spotlight away from a lack of striking prowess, where Sigurdsson’s goal tally has bettered the measly three goal return from Luke Moore in the league. The move can also be seen as yet another vindication of Rodgers terrific rebuilding at the liberty stadium, as prior to Sigurdsson’s recent revival, he endured an horrendous time under former boss Marco Pezzaiuoli, where he was subdued to just seven league appearances in the Bundesliga. 

Due to the temporary nature of Gylfi’s current deal, Swansea fans may have to cope without having the Icelandic international for next term, as current club Hoffenheim, would rather cash in now with the increased publicity surrounding the midfielder. Such a reality may exclude the Swans from entering the bidding process, where the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Sevilla are all tracking the current premier league maestro. Whilst the club’s chances of retaining Gyfli remain in the balance, the loss of Brendan Rodgers as manager would surely be a blow that would be the most immediate of concerns for the Swansea faithful.
