The Swans...and Manchester history 11:02 - Jan 13 with 764 viewsswansvalleyjack



Not quite in the same category as some of our fantastic victories over both clubs in our great Premier League period, but reflecting on two monumental moments (after yesterday's latest Aguero achievement), it's a memorable fact that OUR club has been involved in both those significant events....

1. Aguero's first goals in the Premier League....the start of his Premier League career as it's greatest ever overseas striker

2. Sir Alex Ferguson's last ever game in charge....the end of his Premier League career as its greatest ever Manager

With all the other wonderful memories over the last decade, we will be looking back at the greatest era of our football club.

Such a pity we've lost our way at the moment, but hey, football is ALWAYS cyclic...take the downs with the ups. But memories can never be taken away.

And by God, I also enjoyed baiting the Cardiff fans at the end of yesterday's match :)

Sir Alex Ferguson's last ever game in charge was at West Brom - a 5-5 draw.

Oh yes. Who could forget the 'Coronation of Louis Van Gaal' (which was how BT Sport described it). That went well didn't it!

Here's another one - we're only the third team in Premier League history to complete a double over Manchester United and Arsenal in the same season (2015).

We were a few minutes from screwing up Fergie’s farewell party too! 😂

Bobby Charlton used to play for Manchester United and our first game in the championship was against Charlton.
Not forgetting George Best of course and we are the best.
And there’s Mke Summerbee of Man City and I saw a bee down the Liberty last summer.

Strange thread.

Not strange at all ....only posted after reflecting on Aguero's fantastic record yesterday...topical is all, and how we were part of some great PL moments.
