Nathan Dyer revealed the Swans have been given a licence to thrill in the Premier League by new boss Michael Laudrup.
A scintillating performance saw the Swans get their season off to the perfect start as the Great Dane guided his team to a 5-0 win at QPR in his first game in charge.
It was the Swans’ biggest win in the top flight, and a ruthless display that deservedly grabbed the headlines on the opening weekend of the campaign.
Dyer was among the scorers, notching a brace after new signing Michu announced his arrival by firing home the opening two goals, while sub Scott Sinclair polished off the victory with a powerful effort.
And Dyer pointed to Laudrup’s new approach as the key behind the emphatic victory – the Swans’ first at Loftus Road.
“We don’t want to get carried away too much but it was a great performance,” said the winger. “We created a lot of chances and scored five, which is very pleasing.
“I feel when we turn we are looking for a through ball, that run, penetration in behind – that allows us to create more chances.
“The gaffer wants me to stay inside a bit more in order to make it harder for the opposition to pick me up, and he wants an action at the end of a play - whether it’s a shot or cross then he wants it.
“And I think we did that. You saw Michu working very hard along with getting forward, which makes it easier for us wingers and Danny (Graham) too. Michu took his goals well.
“It’s very satisfying when you turn in a performance like that, and I’m sure the supporters enjoyed it.”
Dyer was quick to point out the level of the team performance, with particular praise for the back four.
And, he insists, the unity within the changing room was also a key factor in their opening-day rout.
“We were very happy with the way we got forward, but we had the likes of Ash, Chico, Tayls and Angel defending so strongly too. Chico has come in and slotted in alongside the rest of the boys very well. That says a lot about him and the team.
“I thoughts Britts in front of them was outstanding too.
“As long as we have that team work ethic we can do a lot of good things.
“We have a strong togetherness in this club. That means new players will come in and settle quickly because there are no big egos. It’s a friendly atmosphere and we’ve seen Chico, Michu and Jonathan fit in very quickly.”
