Wales Online Sink To A New Low
Thursday, 13th Aug 2015 06:50 by Planet Swans (follow us on Twitter @swansnews)

There is nothing appealing about Wales Online but yesterday they sunk to a new low when they published a story about which club Swansea fans "hate" and which clubs "hate" us - this is the sort of crap that our National Newspaper associates themselves with?

As part of the Trinity Mirror group they are of course part of some real gutter publications but now they have associated themselves with what they refer to as the ‘League of Love and Hate’

The paper goes onto say "Supporters of each club were asked to vote whether they loved, hated or were indifferent to each of the other 19 top-flight teams "

I mean what kind of rag would actually publish something along those lines as anything of interest let alone seem to be claiming it was almost some kind of key scientific experiment.

The results tell them that 71% of us apparently hate Stoke although I have to say I am completely indifferent to them in every way, shape and form. The gutter press said " The recent rows with the Potters putting Stoke No.1 with a bullet. A whopping 71.3% of Swansea respondents said they ‘hated’ Stoke, with United next on 61.85% followed by last weekend’s opponents Chelsea on 59.89% and West Ham on 57.83%."

At this point I have to say that I gave up reading. Why the paper seems to think that we have to hate anyone is beyond me. Ever since we arrived in the Premier League we have had a great relationship with away fans and certainly from the 50-odd times I have watched us away in the Premier League then I have always felt we were welcomed wherever we go.

Articles like this for me actually stir up trouble and it is clearly irresponsible for the paper to be running articles like this and claiming that so many fans hate one club and the like.

Wales Online has long been accused of a Cardiff City bias but this is just bad journalism that should be treated with the disdain that it deserves.

I am sure that David Dubas-Fisher is pleased with his piece of incisive journalism, maybe one day he will get himself a decent job or at least learn to do the one he has properly.
