. . . Dwight Tiendalli speaks to Jack Magazine about his dream Swans debut

As Barclays Premier League debuts go, it was one to savour for Dwight Tiendalli.
The Dutch defender came off the bench at the Emirates last weekend for his first take of top-flight action since arriving at the Liberty Stadium.
Tiendalli replaced his compatriot Jonathan de Guzman, with Angel Rangel pushing further up the pitch as the Swans sought a winner.
And he made an immediate impact, linking up well with Luke Moore before being denied by Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny.
But the Swans got the win their performance deserved as Michu scored two late goals to move Michael Laudrup’s men up to seventh in the Premier League table.
And after a fine start to his career in the top-flight with the Swans, Tiendalli revealed his aims for the coming months in a special interview with Jack Magazine - the club’s matchday programme for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Norwich.
“It was great to be out there and be a part of that,” he said. “It was a magnificent performance from the team.
“The win was not just for the players and management, it was for the supporters. We have great fans, they made a lot of noise at the game by signing all through the 90 minutes and the win was for them.
“But it was a great moment for me. Maybe nobody expected us to win but we played really well and we know what we can do against the big teams.
“It’s important that I play well in the minutes I get. I have to wait for my chance and to play well when I get on the pitch.
“Ben (Davies) is playing well, so too is Angel (Rangel). You just have to accept that and do your best in training and prove yourself to the manager and to the supporters.
“I think I have done well in the games I have played in - there is more to come from me.”
Also in this weekend’s 76-page edition of Jack Magazine, we caught up with former Norwich and Wales midfielder Chris Llewellyn as he spoke about his role within the Swans Academy, as well as revealing some of his fondest memories in a Canaries shirt.
As well as this, we have a special feature for you as Jack Magazine takes a look at young Andreas Laudrup, son of boss Michael, after his exploits for Danish club Nordsjaelland in this season’s Champions League.
Ki Sung-Yueng answers your questions in our ‘Fans’ Mailbag’ feature and we take a look back at former Swans from years gone by in our ‘Where Are They Now?’ section, as Adrian Forbes takes centre stage.
And if that wasn’t enough for you, in keeping with the centenary celebrations we have a special feature in every programme this season that charts the history of the Swans in bite-size instalments.

The new-look bumper 76-page magazine is a must for every Swans fan and will be available around the ground, the club shop and online, plus Slee Stores in Plasmarl, Coggers on Wind Street and Browns Newsagent in Landore.
