Captain's Comments - Swansea City

23 May 2015

Before each home game, Eagles skipper Mile Jedinak lifts the lid on the mood in the camp and gives an insight into what's he's been up to ahead of matchday in his programme notes. Here he speaks ahead of the final game of the season against Swansea City.

We picked ourselves up after the defeat to Manchester United last time out here and travelled to Liverpool where the boys put in a great performance to ensure that we did the double over them.

It was a great all-round display; we controlled the game which was really impressive, we looked difficult to play against on the counter and kept the ball well.

Punch scored a great goal but he also played brilliantly. He'd be the first one to say he's worked his socks off to get to that point and on the day most of our attacks came through him. He's not been too far from that form all season in my opinion and it seems he's grown another couple of inches in recent weeks.

We all feed off that confidence. It was great to see Wilfried and Glenn get goals and Yannick was also unplayable at times so things are starting to fall into place. From the Chelsea game we've stepped up from our previous performances and answered the questions asked of us which was shown in terms of the result at Anfield.

It was nice to win Goal of the Season at the Awards Night last week but a huge congratulations has to go to Scott Dann for winning Player of the Year. He's been a key part of our success this season and a few shout outs also have to go to a couple of others as it must have been a tight vote. 

Ahead of his testimonial I also have to pay tribute to Julian Speroni. He's been a massive part of this football club and it's easy to see why, so to have a special night on Tuesday is a great testament to him and his family. Maintaining the level he has means it's been a pleasure to play alongside him.

We should all be proud of the season and hopefully we can push on. We as players have a responsibility to keep driving us forward on the pitch, and that includes the manager and coaching staff, and I'm sure the other things off the pitch will take care of themselves. 

I think everyone linked to this club should be excited about the future and tomorrow will be a celebration of the season but there's still a tough game to play as Swansea City are always a difficult proposition and will be looking to finish on a high. However our home form hasn't been the best so we owe it to our fans to put in a good performance and ensure that we send you on your way for the summer in good spirits.

On behalf of all the players, I would like to thank you all for your support up and down the country this season. I hope we've given you plenty to cheer, and hopefully we'll continue to do that.
