Seven Changes for Blues Against Swansea
Monday, 22nd Apr 2019 14:23
Town boss Paul Lambert has made seven changes to his team for today’s game against Swansea City with Will Keane, Dean Gerken, Trevoh Chalobah, Gwion Edwards, Andre Dozzell, Callum Elder and James Bree all in the XI.
Gerken comes in for Bartosz Bialkowski, who drops to the bench, with Bree, one of four loan players in the team, at right-back and Elder at left-back with Josh Emmanuel and Myles Kenlock both dropping out of the squad.
Chalobah and Dozzell join Flynn Downes in central midfield with Cole Skuse and Teddy Bishop among the subs.
Up front, Keane makes his first start following his hamstring injury down the centre with Alan Judge on the left and Edwards on the right.
For Swansea, George Byers comes into the side for Barrie McKay, who drops to the bench.
Ex-Blues loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers starts for the Swans but another former Town loan player Bersant Celina misses out having been injured and ill over the last week or so.
Town: Gerken, Bree, Chambers (c), Nsiala, Elder, Chalobah, Downes, Dozzell, Edwards, Judge, Keane. Subs: Bialkowski, Skuse, Jackson, Bishop, Nydam, Quaner, Ndaba.
Swansea: Nordfeldt, Roberts, van der Hoorn (c), Carter-Vickers, Naughton, Fulton, Grimes, Routledge, Byers, James, McBurnie. Subs: Benda, Fer, Dyer, McKay, Rodon, John, Baker-Richardson. Referee: Darren England (South Yorkshire).

I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.

I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.

Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
