Humble in Victory? Seemingly Not In Swansea
Humble in Victory? Seemingly Not In Swansea
Sunday, 10th Apr 2011 09:43

Reports suggest that stones were thrown at coached carrying Norwich City supporters as they were leaving the Liberty Stadium. Move over, Wolves, the Swans are as capable of being moronic.

Fist, let's clear up one thing, the majority of Swansea supporters condusted themselves well as they enjoyed the recent victory over promotion rivals. Sadly, however, reputations are built on the behaviour of a few.

Hopefully, this incident, or incidents, will be investigated and the guilty parties identified and suitably punished. Such crass behaviour will make it more difficult for clubs to hire transport to convey their supporters to away games. Which, of course, tends to point an accusing finger at a group of supporters who never travel; or even don't even support the team.

Why, the FA could rule a points deduction as a punishment for Swansea not controlling their supporters. Undoing the work that the players put in.

The ones probably involved usually only turn up for the BIG games they make me ashamed and I can assure you having followed the Swans for at least 50 years I would pack it in now if I thought for a moment that our real supporters behaved like that.
Your travelling fans were brilliant BTW a credit to a club that tries to play the game the right way (not many in this league).

Would be nice if at least two footballing sides went up, see you in the summer on the fabulous Broads.

Thanks, thiswan. Sadly, as each team edges closer to the Premier League, more and more questionable supporters find their way among the true family of followers.

I didn't dare include this in the article, as I must make certain that I do not besmirch the FansNetwork by adding a personal view.

Cardiff City played away at Doncaster , didn't they? It might be interesting to follow up and addresses of casual ticket purchasers to see how many drove over the mountain.

Enjoy your holiday here. I did for many years, so I moved here.

Lots of discussion this week on football forums, including here, on two subjects – the petition to lobby parliament to allow limited numbers of supporters back into football grounds, and of course the return of that old chestnut from Man City Chief Executive Ferran Soriano, introducing Premier League ‘B’ teams into the EFL. First off, I don’t mind admitting I’ve signed the petition ( https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/552036 ), as have 192,779 others at the time of writing, though I don’t actually think it’ll make any difference. I can completely understand why some do not think this is a good idea, as second-wave spikes of coronavirus infection pop up all over the country (mainly because – let’s face it – some people are dicks and can’t be trusted to sit the right way on a toilet). But to me, the two go hand in hand (not dicks and toilets) – whilst football clubs throughout the country struggle financially without spectators, we are always going to be under threat of this sort of ‘B’ team nonsense as a condition of financial support from the Premier League fat cats. They got their way in 2016 with the EFL trophy, who’s to say they won’t again when the financial squeeze really starts to tighten its grip without paying customers through the turnstiles? Robbie has featured prominently in this debate in recent weeks, and looks like he will again on Sky tomorrow if this tweet from Sophy Ridge is anything to go by -
