    Well done, honestly...

    Hi everyone, Swansea fan here. I just wanted to say well done to all your travelling support last night. Whatever you thought of the game, the score, the teams performance I have to say the fans can hold their heads up. No matter what else, even when number 8 went in your fans never stopped supporting their team. They outsang the home fans for the vast majority of it, not that the home fans made much noise all night. The loudest I heard was "Hymns and Arias" piped through the PA system which is embarrasing!
    To be honest, crazy as it might sound, being in the EPL has lost its veneer for many and definitely so for me. The ridiclously over hyped players, the greed and worse of all the constant cheating (and getting away with it) by really very good players ......Dele Alli!!!....has put me off but I enjoyed last nights game, not just because of the score but seeing some genuine supporters again, if you can understand that.
    Good luck in the league you Magpies.

    Thanks for that. At last a real football fan with something decent to say rather than a threatened red dog shaking with relief.

    Great post ,thanks. Your right about the Premier League as well. Would I like to see Notts there , goes without saying . Would I like to see all those prima donna's wearing the colours of my beloved club, only if it means we are above Forest.

    Hope Swansea survive in the Premier League, I'm sure they will given how they're playing recently.

    I've seen a few of those!! I meant every word, I've been going to the Swans for 45 years and while the EPL is THE place to be, I've missed more games this last 5 years than in the previous 40!! I'm not even renewing my season ticket unless we go down, silly isn't it. Hearing the away end last night reminded me of trips to places like Rochdale and Kidderminster the season we nearly fell out of the league, where whatever was going on we just kept singing and hoping for the best.

    PS, navypie, I can't stand FEC Nottingham Forest, terrible away end, terrible stewards and some rally sh*tty fans the last time I was there. They were pissing in bottles and tipping it over us while stewards stood and watched.
    Anyways, must go, good luck again and it's goodbye from me.

    I hope Swansea survive in the Premier League too, and that was the case before I read this OP.

    Swansea have come from where we are, and have seen similar financial hardship, so it's good to see them mixing it with the Premier League aristocrats, especially with their style of football. Even before murdering us, I thought they were starting to regain some of the silky passing they established under the likes of Martinez and Rodgers. We definitely caught them at the wrong time!

    If you find a barrow wheel anywhere can you send it back, we could do with it before Saturday?

    Loved the way your manager was yelling at his winger to "GO GO!" but rather wished he hadn't.
