Years since relegation
at 08:01 16 May 2018

The bit of trivia that has popped up both on here and in the pub regarding the last time we were relegated got me thinking how lucky we've actually been over the last decade and a half. It got me wondering how we have compared to others since our last relegation in 2001.

So out of boredom, curiosity and pure anorak syndrome, I've gone through all relegations back to 1992 (which picked up 95% of relegations) then done an individual club check on the remaining teams.

Apologies for any errors. I tried to do some double checks on any that looked suspicious or surprising. Any corrections are welcome.
Also, apologies for the format. Excel doesn't translate well here.

One that took my notice was this was Burton's first relegation since 1977.

Final note, this only includes relegation from the EPL/EFL unless otherwise stated. Teams may have been relegated from the conference since the year listed.

In descending order of years since last relegation (Not including 2018);

Any pubs show the games anymore?
at 09:20 15 Apr 2017

Obviously can't be stated by name in this topic, but are there any pubs in Swansea still showing Swans games?

I used to know of a couple that would have "private" showings, but even that's gone by the wayside now.

Any places hidden in a backstreet somewhere that has escaped scrutiny from Sky? A PM would be appreciated if there is

Warra twunt!
at 14:51 20 Mar 2014

Does anybody know the owner of this car? He is the biggest (Well, smallest) pile of wasted spunk I've ever encountered.



In Tesco car park earlier waiting for a family to put their daughter and pram into the car (The bloke took a little bit longer to put the pram in the boot than he should have, but hey ho.) I must have waited patiently for about 5 minutes while others did the same behind me (to allow for the car to come out as well).

As soon as they pulled out, that perr-ick cut up me and 5 other cars to pull into the space (His stupid chavvy bint laughed as they passed me).

I got out and knocked his door and told him to get out of the space. He got out with his small man syndrome and Gangstaaaa cap and started giving it the big ones. "You what mate! You want it! I'll have ew.." etc... I put my hand out to stop him from coming towards me and with no force or pressure applied he stumbled back into his door and started again "Don't push me! Don't push me mush!"

Luckily for him, I'm off on holiday tonight, so don't fancy being banged up otherwise I would have chinned the little scrote.

If anyone does know him or see him, feel free to direct him here as I would love to arrange a little "chat" when I get back.

Also, thanks to the lady who pulled up when I finally managed to park somewhere to see if I was ok and agreed that he was out of order.

Season Reviews / Match DVDs
at 15:00 12 Feb 2014

I've noticed that the Swans shop has a limited amount of DVDs in stock now. I always have a yearning to watch some old games or season reviews.

I have a handful of match DVDs (Preston, 2x Cardiff, Southampton, Leicester, plus another 1 or 2 I can't remember now) and some season reviews (2010-11, 12-13 & 13-14)

Does anyone know where I could get more? Anyone with their own collection willing to give away/loan/sell/upload/swap?

What was your expectation for this season?
at 10:15 21 Jan 2014

With all of the doom and gloom going on here, I'm actually interested to learn what the general expectation was from the start of this season. I, for one, think we are pretty much where I expected us to be.

Bottom half vs top 8
at 00:03 21 Jan 2014

So the top 8 have been pretty ruthless this year and have put some distance between themselves and the bottom lot, even at this early stage.
Now, we've just come out of our horrendous fixture run and are looking at some winnable games coming up and it will be these games that will save or doom these clubs.
But who has the worst run out of all of the teams in contention to be included in a relegation scrap this season?

I've discounted Southampton as, while they had a good start, they've faltered a bit recently. They'll be safe (Just a couple more wins will do) but they're not as intimidating as the other teams above Villa.

So, make of this what you will.;

Villa
Top 4 (to play): 2
Top 6: 3
Top 8: 6
1 Home, 5 Away

Hull
Top 4: 2
Top 6: 4
Top 8: 6
5 Home, 1 Away

Norwich
Top 4: 4
Top 6: 5
Top 8: 7
5 Home, 2 Away

West Brom
Top 4: 4
Top 6: 5
Top 8: 6
4 Home, 2 Away

Stoke
Top 4: 3
Top 6: 4
Top 8: 6
4 Home, 2 Away

Swansea
Top 4: 3
Top 6: 4
Top 8: 5
1 Home, 4 Away

Palace
Top 4: 4
Top 6: 5
Top 8: 7
3 Home, 4 Away

Fulham
Top 4: 3
Top 6: 5
Top 8: 7
4 Home, 3 Away

West Ham
Top 4: 4
Top 6: 6
Top 8: 7
3 Home, 4 Away

Sunderland
Top 4: 4
Top 6: 6
Top 8: 8
1 Home, 7 Away

Cardiff
Top 4: 2
Top 6: 4
Top 8: 6
2 Home, 4 Away

I would not like to be in Sunderlands boat right now.
We have the least of the top 8 to play, but 4 of them are away.

EDIT: Damn, didn't see the other thread on this. Too slow :-/

Planning a road trip through France
at 15:41 25 Aug 2013

Something I've thought about doing for a while. Was going to drive straight to Monaco and back a couple of years ago but it didn't come about. I've expanded on the idea now and hopefully will do it next year with the missus.

Anybody here done anything similar? What's it like driving in a different country? Anything I should watch out for or be aware of?

Here's my planned route so far. Suggestions on other places to see or visit are welcome also thoughts on whether or not this is feasible in 2 weeks;
Hastings
Rouen
Paris
Ouradour-sur-Glane
Bordeaux
Pau
Rennes-le-Chateaux
Nice
Monaco
Turin
Montreux
Reims
Dover
