Since it's Christmas, I decided to have a look at some of the things which might be on the Swansea boss's list to Santa this year...
Following two difficult away games, Swansea have signing-of-the-season Michel Vorm to thank for the single point the Swans scraped up on their travels.

Following Swansea's dismal self sabotage against Blackburn, the Swans picked themselves up to chalk up a very respectable three points against a decent Fulham side.
If the game against Blackburn had been frustrating way to squander three points, the Swans certainly learned their lesson. The chief culprit that day was the way the team defended (or rather didn't defend) set-pieces. Against Fulham, the focus was back, the Swans successfully defending five corners in posting another clean sheet.

In a frustrating game which Swansea had no place losing, Blackburn might have given the Swans a few ideas for their Christmas list to Santa. Top of the list, a centre back like Chris Samba.
Samba was a giant in this game, both physically and figuratively, routinely blocking shots and disrupting Swansea's attacking moves at one end, and making a nuisance of himself at set pieces at the other, his virtually uncontested header across the goal setting up Yakubu's third.
