Football on ESPN/Setanta never seems to bode well for us.

I don't agree with that Paul. I've been watching us only on ESPN in my part of the world since 1996 and we haven't been too bad :)

You have a different ESPN to us. The ESPN games are usually 5:45 kick offs on a saturday and we all know how crap we are at those.

And is a cat B. Good luck with selling that one out Arsenal when the league on was cat C.
08/01/2013 13:57:00
I was wondering about that myself SW. Arsene Wenger publically states that the league is more important than the FA Cup, so how can the club justify in an increase in ticket price for something they consider less important?
08/01/2013 14:01:00
It's a massive flaw in the Season Ticket taking into account cup credits matey, if they downgraded it to Cat C, they'd have to compensate the ST holders somehow. The administration are probably over the moon we have a chance to use up one of these fabulous credits we have no choice to pay for
08/01/2013 14:26:00
Given the Swans result at Chelsea in the first round of the League Cup, as opposition they're clearly not to be taken lightly. Maybe Cat B isn't unjustified for such a contest.
09/01/2013 21:50:00
That's far too simplistic Amos. One could argue that QPR beat Chelsea so they should be Cat B too.
10/01/2013 09:19:00
Amos in looking the other way for the sake of looking the other way shock.
10/01/2013 10:04:00
Not looking the other way shewore just not having my eyes closed. Let's try a bit of reasoning. QPR are bottom of the league. Swans are currently a top 10 side and have had their share of other good results (they also play quite good football) not just one win against Chelsea. So no you can't really compare them to QPR (that would be far too simplistic). Not a Cat A side but not really comfortably a Cat C side either - unless you're being negative for the sake of being negative.
