Away support for Swans dwindling ? 12:26 - Jan 3 with 1987 viewsEagleEye

This makes pretty poor reading for the much travelled Swans away support. We have the greatest distances to travel & historically we have always had decent away support. My thoughts have always been that we usually take away far more supporters than we get visiting us so this really is a surprise …

Cost of living?
Distances involved?
Would have taken far more to Leeds on a Saturday and for that matter to Stoke.
Teams performances not giving fans the urge to travel across the country at the moment.

This is not a true reflection on our support, it takes an hour just to get out of Wales

It's annoying when you see things like for example Oh look Sunderland took x amount of fans to Leeds

Sunderland to Leeds is 94 miles
Swansea to Bristol is 80 miles

We take 2,000 - 3,000 across the bridge every time.

Millwall away support is also poor a fella I work with is a big Millwall fan and said they don't take many away anymore because all the home fans come out of the woodwork for them and it's just too much of a ball ache

Exactly. Plus our Xmas away followings were far in excess of that.

A great believer in taking anything you like to wherever you want to.

Yep and going north was even worse. It never felt that we had really started making headway until we got to Strensham Services - 125 miles.

Some clubs over the last couple of seasons have only brought 150-200 to us.

Swansea Indepenent Poster Of The Year 2021. Dr P / Mart66 / Roathie / Parlay / E20/ Duffle was 2nd, but he is deluded and thinks in his little twisted brain that he won. Poor sod. We let him win this year, as he has cried for a whole year. His 14 usernames, bless his cotton socks.

As someone who generally has no interest whatsoever in going to away games our support on the road has always seemed quite impressive to me. Going to away games isn't cheap and Swansea isn't a wealthy area.

We seem to have punched significantly above our weight in recent seasons, and if that's wavering a little given how disappointing we've been over the last few years and the general financial situation then that's entirely understandable.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.
