Maybe you are enough of a footballing aficionado to strike out on your own, but if not then here is some friendly insider’s advice from Picklive:

Top Swansea Pick – Alan Tate

Picklive Gaffer and Swansea fan Tim Morgan often says “if you had a team of Alan Tates then you would be laughing”. In Picklive terms, this is definitely true. During their victory at Portman Road in December, Tate scored an astounding 96 points – in doing so, he completed 56 passes and made 40 interceptions. Tate’s reliability is a perfect foil for more luxury players like Scott Sinclair or Luciano Becchio.

Top Leeds Pick – Jonny Howson

The secret to Picklive is to pick the right kind of players for the right kind of game. Howson, however, is the man for all seasons. His combative style will come to the fore against the Swans’ steady and accurate passing game, but he is no stranger to positive attacking play. As likely to earn points for a tackle as a shot, he is a Picklive player’s dream.

One to Avoid – Darren Pratley

Before spitting your tea all over the keyboard… Pratley is without doubt one of the Swans’ most influential players, and this is surely something that would be proven by Picklive points? It Plwould, if only he didn’t commit so many fouls. Against Cardiff, Pratley committed six fouls and lost himself 18 points in the process. In a game that can take you from heroic victory to humbling defeat in a matter of seconds, this is not a quality to be desired.
