Three things we learned from Stoke away

Huw Richards returns to look at three things to take from our last league outing, before Leicester City come to town tomorrow

1. Garry likes a rant

After the criminal 3-3 draw at the Liberty versus Stoke last year (Stoke again getting a dubious penalty), Laudrup said "Only one person in the stadium thought it was a penalty and that was the referee. It was a very bad decision." But Garry didn't hold back like Michael.

"The penalty against us is a disgrace. It's a disgraceful decision. Not in a million years is it a penalty" 

He certainly had a point. It is also quite refreshing to see a Swansea manager have a proper rant, in all honesty.

2. Tom Carroll can do a job

With England international Jonjo Shelvey suspended, a gaping hole was left in midfield, next to Ki Sung Yeung. Carroll was selected to fill the gap, and he didn't let anyone down.

3. Bony can still take penalties

After missing a penalty for Ivory Coast during the International break,and thumping the crossbar with one against Reading, he restored confidence in all Swans fan with an ice-cool penalty against the Potters.
