Lee Trundle's brings you his first skysports.com column.Firstly, thanks for joining me for my first column on skysports.com.
I really cannot get away from how well we at Swansea City have started off this new season.
To be top of the table as I speak to you after seven games is a wonderful effort, but to be honest not totally surprising.
Some people will be shocked given we have just been promoted, but I think this new league suits our style of play as we have players here who can play some wonderful football.
No disrespect to the league below, but you do find that at that level the players are big and are not so much concerned with the skill factor.
We try and play football and we always have, but that was not the case against a lot of the teams last season.
At this level the play is not so rushed and it allows you to play, but saying that of late teams have started to come and play five across the back - which just gives us confidence as they are already giving us a massive amount of respect despite the fact we have just come up.
You get teams like Nottingham Forest coming and playing for time by keeping the ball in the corners towards the end and looking for a point - that just shows how far we have come.
The move up a league has also been helped by our fantastic support and our wonderful new stadium. The fans have shown they are more than capable of supporting a team at this level and beyond.
The fans have previously seen their side go from fourth to first and that really is our long-term aim. We have a Premiership stadium and that is where we want to be.
As like with all players, I want to play at the highest level - but like I have always said I want that to be at Swansea.
All I can do is keep scoring goals and doing my job for Swansea, I don't take any notice of reports. I just turn a blind-eye to them.
If Swansea wanted to sell me then that would be their choice, it is out of my hands and I would never ask to leave Swansea - why would I?
Away from Swansea I have also seen that Reading's Kevin Doyle has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad - and that really does give me confidence for the future.
It shows that Brian Kerr is looking outside The Premiership and I am hoping that, if I can continue my current form, he will take a look at me.
I would love to play for Ireland, a lot of my family are from there and that is the real reason - I am not merely looking to play international football at any cost.
Northern Ireland has been mentioned to me, and to be honest I haven't even looked into it.
