Swansea City 3 – Arsenal 2

in Swansea City FC

Yesterday the Swans managed to out play, out gun, out pass the best passing team in the league.  You might have seen the game, but if not, take a look at this written in the independent which gives you an idea how far our club has come.

“Nine years ago to the day, Swansea were bottom of the Football League. And guess who were top of the Premiership? 

Arsenal.

That said it all, while “Land of our Fathers” sang it all as it resounded across South-west Wales. The suspicion must be, however, that not even their fabled forefathers would have believed this.

The Gunners, the mighty Gunners, outplayed at their own game and toppled in the Premier League. No club, anywhere, has enjoyed a more rousing turnaround this century.

Inevitably, Arsène Wenger had his gripe with the officials, calling Swansea’s first-half penalty “complete imagination”. But when the bitterness subsided of Arsenal’s second successive League defeat and of a four-point gap to Chelsea in fourth, even he had to admit how deserving Swansea were of the three points which hauled them into the top 10.

Brendan Rodgers’ men 2only know one way to play – the right way. And when their history is rewritten this win will rightfully feature large and proud.”

There is a lot more that can be said, written, watched, but I think for today that article sums it up well.  Well done Brendan Rodgers and the team, making us very proud fans.  And yes, I was there 9 years ago watching us in the old 4th division.  Probably watched more games as it was easier to get a ticket too.  Will dig out some pictures of the old vetch field.
