Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez says he couldn’t be more excited as we go into the final 10 games of the season.

His side hope to entertain Plymouth Argyle tonight before Crystal Palace visit the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Maximum points in those games would give us a huge boost before 3 away trips in a row.

Roberto Martinez told the Evening Post just how excited he is, and he is, he mentions the word about 5 times!

‘It is time to be excited. We are getting into the last 30 points and that is where everything can happen, where you can achieve your aims,’

‘So everyone should be excited and ready to push on in the last part of the season.

‘I could not be more excited. When you remember it has been 24 years since we have been at this level and now we are challenging to be in the top six, we really have no right to be doing that and that is why I am so proud of my players.

‘It is time to be excited. Knowing the fans will be excited will be a huge plus for us.’


You can hardly blame him or the players or fans for being excited to be associated with the club.

In his short spell here, Martinez has already won a League title, and followed that on by competing for a play-off place in the Championship.

His ambitions are also huge, and yet realistic. He wants to take us to the Premiership and the vast majority of us have faith that he’ll do that, whether it’s 1 year or 5.
