It was a good day for Swansea City on Saturday afternoon, as they beat Huddersfield Town 1-0 at the Swansea.com Stadium.
Summer signing Joel Piroe’s goal – his fifth in the league already this season – 17 minutes into the game, was enough to secure the victory for the Swans.
Have Swansea ever been involved in these 18 scenarios?
That victory marked a first at home in the league under new manager Russell Martin, and just a second in nine Championship games this season, putting the Welsh club 17th in the current Championship table.
Perhaps not surprisingly therefore, plenty of Swansea fans were keen to pay tribute to their side after that success, with another summer signing, Flynn Downes, coming in for plenty of praise.
Since arriving from Ipswich in August, the midfielder has quickly established himself as a key figure in the centre of the park for Swansea, and produced another dominant performance in Saturday’s win.
That is something that did not go unnoticed amongst the Swansea faithful as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game.
Here, we take a look at what some of those Swans fans had to say about the 22-year-old’s latest performance.
Flynn Downes was everywhere today – superb performance, proper feisty as well 👏🏻👏🏻 #swans

Flynn Downes & Ryan Manning were excellent today, some superb work all over the park from Flynn. As for Manning he was always in the right place at the right time to mop up. Piroe & Ntcham showed their quality once again. 🦢🦢🦢 #Swans
