The Swans certainly stole the headlines after a phenomenal 5-0 opening day win over QPR at Loftus Road.
That stunning victory in West London only saw the Swans take centre stage with the local and national media, but also across the Pond.
The New York Times waxed lyrical about Michu, who scored twice on his debut.
They wrote: “The antidote to letting a key player go is knowing where to find a replacement. And while one victory, even one as handsome as Swansea enjoyed against the hapless QPR, is no proof of anything over a 38-game season, the touch that Michu applied in scoring his second goal of that game was — well, it was in Laudrup’s class.
“It was not that Michu used the space so invitingly open to him. It was the timing, the almost laconic way that he leaned back and caressed the shot with his left foot, curling it against the inside of the far post and ricocheting it into the net.
“Michu is tall for a Spanish midfielder. He stands 1.85 meters, or just above 6 feet, but he is balanced, measured and, on this Saturday, he had an eye for the goal in the manner of his new mentor, Laudrup.”
Staying with the Spaniard, the Daily Mail ran the headline Matador Michu: Swansea's £2m new boy takes bull by the horns with fast double
Swans boss Michael Laudrup praised his midfield gem after he completed a sensational debut with two goals and an assist.
"He already fits in with the mentality of the team because these are players who are used to fighting,” said Laudrup. "They don’t come from Barcelona or Real Madrid. They have come from smaller clubs. That’s the same mentality as Swansea. Sometimes you can bring in players who are good players but they need maybe six, seven or eight months to fit into the style, to the culture or the city — and we don’t have that time."
Meanwhile, the Telegraph questioned Laudrup over the omission of Scott Sinclair from his starting XI.
The winger came off the bench to score a fine goal to cap off an unforgettable afternoon for the Jack Army.
“I had no problem with taking Scott in the first-team squad. He has been training well. There are a lot of rumours but there is no problem there,” said the Swans boss.
“Wayne and Nathan have been here a long time and we have worked a lot, with the ball and without, regarding the position of the wide players. Scott has only been here for nine or 10 days (because he has been away with Team GB) so of course we have not had as much time to work with him. That was why I chose the other two.”
The Western Mail showered Laudrup with praise after he guided the Swans to their biggest top-flight victory.
They wrote: “The King is dead, long live the King. Michael Laudrup took a giant leap forward in his job of replacing Brendan Rodgers at Swansea City with this historic demolition of Queen’s Park Rangers.
“The omens for Laudrup had not been good for his first game in charge, the Swans had not won on the opening day of a season since 2005 and, even more worryingly, they hadn’t won at Loftus Road in 19 previous attempts.
“But there is something about Laudrup and a 5-0 scoreline.
“During his illustrious playing career Laudrup inspired Barcelona to a magnificent 5-0 win against Real Madrid in El Classico during the 1993-94 season.
“A year later, having made the controversial switch from Barca to Real, the Dane turned on the magic once again to lead Los Galacticos to victory over their nearest rivals by the same scoreline.
“This might not have been Barcelona against Real Madrid but it was a win that will go down in the history books of Swansea City.”
The South Wales Evening Post ran an interview with Nathan Dyer, who bagged a brace against the Hoops.
Dyer praised his new boss for the impact and influence he had on his performance at Loftus Road.
He said: "He was a great player in his time so the knowledge he's going to bring to the team is going to be phenomenal.
"We'll learn from him, that's what we've been doing in pre-season. We created a lot of chances today, and we took them."
Finally, the BBC are reporting the Swans have made an approach for Celtic's Ki Sung-Yueng.
Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby told them: "He is keen to move on and the club is in discussion with another club," said Mjallby. "There have been a few clubs interested in him.
"I know for sure there has been one bid for him and I think maybe one or two other bids.
"He is a quality player but on the other hand he is keen to move on so the club needs to do something.
"He was away at the Olympics for a period of time but we will be sorry to see him go."
