Well done, kiddo.

Led from the front by example with clever, clever play. Bravo.

Yes, he brought his experience from th U23s to that game, especially holding up the ball at the end.

Abraham will go on to be the better player, by some distance.

But McBurnie certainly a better bet as a lone frontman.

Credit where it's due, give him a run now see if he can crack on.

Disagree with you at the moment.

He may well go on to score more goals; because he will have better players around him.

Oli has shown he has far more to his game comparing the size of the two lads.

Tammy's refusal to challenge for high balls is criminal.

He really couldn’t have picked a better time to put in that cameo could he? New boss in charge for his first match... Well done Ollie!

I'd pick Ollie before Tammy on current form. Now watch us loan him out in January.

Did superbly when he came on, put himself about and kept us in possession and linked up with midfielders. Abraham didn't do any of those things today. And when the chance came, McBurnie stepped up.

Killed a lot of time in the corner too, which really helped us avoid any last chances at the end which I would have not backed us to have the backbone for this season.

Never been a big McBurnie fan, but I’m eating my words today. Really thought he was excellent

Anyone who has watched him in the U23's can see that he's a very good player, and not just his outstanding goal scoring record for them.

Whether he can kick on and make it in the Premier League is another thing mind. Fully deserves his chance though.

I want a mate like Flashberryjacks, who wears a Barnsley jersey with "Swans are my second team" on the back.

If we do go down, I see no reason why he can't be a regular in the Championship for us.

Can anybody please give me a reason why most of you thought he was awful before today? I have never seen anything bad from him when given a chance.

On topic. Good job McBurnie, you deserve the chance and took it well.

Because he's skinny, pale skinned and his socks are rolled down.

Honest.

Because you’ve never seen anything good from him either, at least not in the first team. Up until now, he has only had cameos and an impossible task at Anfield. Always neat and tidy but never stamped any authority on the game.

He did today. Really impressed by him.

Just wondering how he'd do starting alongside Wilf? Worth a shot?

Battled away, tackled back, got in the official' ears about decisions. Showed passion and commitment.

That's what we want!

I still think Tammy and Wilf if we are going to go with a front two. What McBurnie did really well (excluding the excellent header for the Ayew goal) was hold up and link play. Bony can do all that as well as anyone. Think Tammy is a better partner for him.

Without Bony, there’s probably a decent argument for at least giving him a go. Tammy isn’t suited to leading the line on his own.

If Mesa is Swansea's Iniesta, Ollie is Swansea's Peter Crouch. Well pleased for him

Didn't he score a Hatrick on his debut for Newport.
I have never seen the under 23s play so no idea if he is good enough.

Add to that the fact that Tammy seems to have had a bit of a spoilt teenager attitude these last couple of weeks. Needed a kick up the bum. Well done Ollie lad.

Agreed. Before today I'd have said loan him to a Champ side for the rest of the season so he'd get some experience there and be ready next year if we're relegated. Now I'm less certain about either thing happening.

He looks superb for them, but it’s nowhere near Premier League standard.
