Swansea boss Monk: Halftime crisps inspired win at Newcastle!

Swansea City boss Garry Monk says victory over Newcastle United was inspired by handing out the crisps at halftime!

A claim emerged last week that players eating crisps at half-time in games was partly responsible for disharmony.

Monk said: "I got the crisps out at half-time - that made the difference.

"The players all ate them and they got their energy from that.

"If our squad wasn't together, you wouldn't have seen a performance like that, or the one against Chelsea when we were down to ten men for 70-odd minutes.

"It's clear the players are all together.

"A story like that one can help, especially when you got the sense that had come from outside the club.

"It galvanises you a bit - although I don't think we needed that anyway."
