What do 3 of this season's EFL play-off finalists have in common?

Apologies if this has already been done but I've thought of a past, present and future (maybe, has been linked to us in the media!) starting 11 of SCFC players at this year's tournament:-
(RB) Jazz (CB) Chester (CB) Ash (LB) Ben
(RW) Hal R-K (CMF) Joe (CMF) Gylfi (LW) Tayls
(CF) Priskin (CF) Eder
MANAGER: MR.CHRISTOPHER COLEMAN
OK, it wouldn't be my idea of a dream team...but it certainly fills me with pride for the club to have so many links to this year's Euros

Going by recent history:-
Fergie's last home game.
Moyes' first game.
van Gaal's first home game...
Swans v Yernited as first game of next season anyone?!

Apologies if this has already been done! I've just done a bit of checking back on our PL results versus our last 7 opposition teams in the corresponding fixtures and came up with this:-
STOKE (a) P4 W0 D1 L3 Average 0.25 pts
CHELSEA (h) P4 W0 D2 L2 Average 0.5 pts
NEWCASTLE (a) P4 W3 D1 L0 Average 2.5 pts
LEICESTER (a) P1 W0 D0 L1 Average 0 pts
LIVERPOOL (h) P4 W1 D2 L1 Average 1.25 pts
WEST HAM (a) P3 W0 D0 L3 Average 0 pts
MAN CITY (h) P4 W1 D1 L2 Average 1 pt
So in a nutshell, we've taken an average total of 5.5 pts from these fixtures. Knock of the 0.5 as a worst case scenario and we maybe looking at a finishing points total this season of 41. I'm naturally a pessimist when it comes to the Swans but cannot see us losing all 7 of our remaining fixtures and would be more than happy to keep this average going, keeping us up in this most traumatic of seasons.
Please tell me I'm right!

...there was a proud football club from the south of Wales. This football club had enjoyed many happy times but had also spent a very long time in the footballing wilderness. With loyal support and damned hard graft this football club had managed to drag itself back up through the leagues and back into the promised land which it had craved for many years. Then, in the season 2014-15 the football club only just fell short of qualifying for even more greatness. However, many of its supporters felt that maybe it was a step too far too soon for the club (which was only just establishing itself as a force once more in the division) and enjoyed the warm glow of a very decent league finish. All was well and the fans were happy, anticipating what thrills and spills were lying ahead for 2015-16.
BUT...suddenly, this proud football club found itself stalling and then, sadly, going into reverse. The football deteriorated, the goals dried up, the team began losing games which it shouldn't have and the club dropped down the division; the division which the club was terrified of dropping out of (again) and relegation became a distinct reality. The fans became disgruntled with the manager; a man who himself had played many football matches in the past at the position of centre-half. He was a decent man who wanted the best for his team but, alas, he had run out of ideas and was simply not good enough to continue with his work. The board of this football club - fearing the inevitable - boldly decided to relieve their club's manager of his duties.
And then things began to change. A new man with a fresh approach and ideas was given the job of rescuing this ailing Welsh football club from the abyss. One of the most pressing problems the manager soon realised was a distinct lack of goals, so a player with an eye for a goal was borrowed to bolster the team's attack; slowly but surely the team began playing better football, the defeats turned into draws and the draws turned into wins. The club soon found itself pulling away from the relegation zone, looking up the table rather than down and the fans were happy and smiling again.
And the moral of this story is...
if Newport County can do it, why can't we?

of being our top goalscorer (and the PL's top scorer this calendar year) without his goals getting us the points. So far this season we have only gathered five points from the games in which he's scored - the win against Leicester and the draws against Newcastle and Palace (all at home). The guy must be feeling a touch frustrated, particularly when half of his goals in the PL so far this season have yielded no points at all. I just hope this pattern doesn't continue and he decides to start looking around for another club...

Kev Johns lead us into 'battle'. We've not done too badly since, eh?

Just a quick query...does anyone know if there are any plans for our game to be moved from the 15:00 kick-off? The national egg-chasers are at home the same time so I'm surprised our game hasn't yet been moved. I thought we never played at home at the same time as them if they were playing in Cardiff (?)
