Gutted we only had him as second choice when we went for Paul Ince instead in 2008. A very rare bad decision John Williams made.

So glad for Swansea. Giving Bradford a guard of honour too shows how classy they are, coming from their manager. Laudrup's done an exceptional job. With the players lost like Seabs pointed out, he's made some terrific signings in Michu obviously, but De Guzman, Hernandez & Chico. He's got the best out of young Ben Davies too after the injury to Taylor.

He's very well respected in the game, sets his team out to play good football. He's quickly becoming a possible contender to take over at United when Sir Alex finally retires. I think he'd be a perfect choice. He wouldn't take the attention away from the club like Mourinho would. He's had European experience too unlike Moyes, who I don't think would get it anyway tbh.

Re: If La Liga is a SUNNY SPL, what is the Premier League?

I'd want to see how Laudrup does under more pressure higher up the table before I'd commit to wanting him as Fergie's replacement but he seems like an ideal contender. Plus not being bigger than the club is a massive positive. Jose would do great for us but I'd be surprised if we chose a person like Jose who's such a short term solution after Fergie. Maybe even if we're backed into a corner while we hold out for a long term option. But yeah Laudrup looks like a top class manager. Europa League for Swansea is very intriguing.

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.

Swansea were in League 2 the last time Arsenal won a trophy.

I think we just need to go ahead and rename Bananas as THE RACIST ONE. Not a cool gimmick.

Re: If La Liga is a SUNNY SPL, what is the Premier League?

You have to congratulate Swansea, in charge from the start. Bradford certainly haven't turned up for a cup final, but they have beaten Premier League sides to get to Wembley so they deserve their medals. The referee should never be allowed to be in charge again. Swansea winning 3-0they earn a penalty & the goal keeper is sent off. So much for the missing words in the English language- common sense

Bananas vs Seb Coulter at Wrestlemania. Book it. Also I feel sorry for Dyer as I doubt he gets the chance to get a hat trick at wembley again. May be selfish but I don't blame him for being angry. The game was won. Shame Bradford did not win the league cup.

Laudrup is one of the classiest managers I've ever seen and clearly he's a fucking good one as well.

Re: If La Liga is a SUNNY SPL, what is the Premier League?

I think the fact they were playing Bradford in the final has taken away from Swansea's story a bit.

A few years ago Swansea were just well know for having Lee Trundle's skill appearances on Soccer AM. Now there one of the top 10 sides in the entire country.

Can't see that happening with Swansea, their league form'll probably take a knock but they've bought/developed players very well lately. Stoke did well in Europe and in the league, considering Swansea have got a great manager and a good scouting network I think they'll be fine.

True, the squad is good and their signings have been astute and its likely they'd keep the majority of their better players with European football looming next season unless a big team comes in with an offer too good to refuse. They just have history on their side, though so much will depend on how far they progress in Europe. Boro struggled as they got to the Semis (or was it the Final?) and I'm pretty sure Fulham were in the bottom half the majority of the season they have their European adventure.
