Re: If La Liga is a SUNNY SPL, what is the Premier League?
I'm indifferent to Swansea. Too many people around my area supporting them because 'you have to do right by fellow Welsh' even though they're up there as big rivals alongside Cardiff and behind Chester. They've got a great philosophy and its nice to see a club work its way up and retain their principles and build slowly but smartly instead of wasting capital to make it to the big time. I by no means have anything against them, just the people in my town who seem to openly support them when it suits them (i.e today and most likely in Europe next season).
Same thing with the 000s who'll go to Wembley for the FA Trophy Final Wrexham are in. I was raised United as a younglin and haven't looked back, since they were the team I was brought up with. I've had to take my Nain to a few games but I made a conscious decision that I wasn't going to support two teams with equal measure since it felt wrong. The amount of people who profress to be Everton/Liverpool fans on here, go to barely any games whilst openly attending umpteen Wrexham games and supporting them just as fanatically confuses me in all honesty. They always feel more Wrexham fans than they do Everton/Liverpool yet they swear by their higher alleigance to Everton/Liverpool.
Be interesting to see how they recruit in the summer. Only problem with the likes of Fulham and Boro who make strides into Europe is that their domestic form dips as the squad gets rotated and the depth becomes exposed with a greater ratio of games per week. Would be sad to see Swansea dragged into a relegation dogfight through their European Committment and go the way of Boro who never really recovered after their Uefa Cup campaign took them to 16th/17th when they finished 5th the season prior and the fans slowly lost interest in the team.
