Your Say - Premier League - Here we Go...



So I`m going to start and try my best to blog just as my beloved Swansea City are going to start and try their best to compete with the elite in the 'Greatest League in the World`.

I`m not, however, going to try to say how hard it`s going to be. We all know it is.

I`m not going to say how great it is to be the first Welsh club to play in the Premier League. We all know it is.

I`m not even going to talk about our past struggles, from administration to near relegation, and all within the last 10 years. We all know about them by now.

I am, though, going to enjoy every game this forthcoming season. Its something I thought I`d never see in the 25+ years of following the Swans.

But without being defeatest (as are some Swans fans), I am absolutely fine with the fact that we are the bookies favourites to finish bottom. I, for one, will not be devastated if we suffer relegation, come next May.

I will be happy enough to have shared my club with the whole world (apparently).

Whilst every opportunity must be grasped, we are still a work in progress and are far from world beaters just yet.

My point is, I feel we will go down, but I`ve accepted it. Anything other than that, and I`ll be drunk for at least a week. Again.

Brendan Rodgers
i think if they move the ball around the pitch like they have this season + say like 2/3 more players added to strengthen up the squad we may just stay up
