The first half of this season of the Premier League has been unexpected to say the least, with a number of clubs rising to the top section of the English League standings. Southampton, West Ham United and Swansea City all have managed to snatch a spot in the top 5.

The story and journey of Swansea City in this season of the Premier League has been a peculiar one as the chairman of the club Huw Jenkins sacked an experienced coach Michael Luadrup, and replaced him with someone who had never managed a club in his entire career Garry Monk.

Garry Monk had been the captain of the club for over 6 years but he had never taken up a managerial position ever and this even the own supporters and fans of Swansea City were concerned as if Monk was the appropriate man to take charge of the club and guide them through the Premier League.

The season of Garry Monk and Swansea City started off in superb form as they overcame Manchester United with a scoreboard of 2-1 and the latest Premier League match of Swansea City was also a positive one as the club had to travel over to the Emirates Stadium and play in the home stadium of Arsenal and defeat the team of Brendan Rodgers with an unforeseen scoreboard which displayed 2-1 at the end of it all.

Even the transfer activities and decisions of Garry Monk has favored Swansea City in a huge way as Lukasz Fabianski and Jefferson Montero are some of the signings that Monk has eagerly signed and both players have been going through a superb form.

Chico Flores was a player of Swansea City that was believed to have caused a lot of unnecessary problems or drama in the dressing room of the Premier League club and the Spanish defender was sold on a quick manner and it does seem to have brought a sense of harmony in the team.

The first major trophy in the history of Swansea City was earned after Swansea defeated Bradford City with a score of 5-0 but if things continue on going on as it has been doing in the recent few months, it seems like more major trophies will be earned by the Premier League club which is going through a sensational season under the guidance of Garry Monk.
