Football was different back in the 1970s; in February 1978 Swansea City were struggling in the fourth tier of English football when a young John Toshack was appointed as manager. Young? Just 28 at the time – a lot younger than some of his players and the youngest manager in the Football League.
Incredibly within three years Tosh had taken Swansea into the top flight for the first time in their history – and what a year they had. On August 29th 1981, the Swans played their first ever fixture in what is now the Premier League. It was a breathtaking start to the season and a hat-trick from new-signing Bob Latchford helped secure a 5-1 victory against the mighty Leeds United.
The game was no flash-in-the-pan, that season the Swans chalked up victories over Spurs, Arsenal and Man Utd and finished in sixth place.
Fourth tier to Premier League in a few years couldn’t happen these days, could it? Well it did for Swansea City.
Back in 2005 the Swans were once again playing in the bottom division, by 2011 they were in the Premier League beating the likes of Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool and securing a very respectable mid-table finish.
Greatest moment? Probably Wembley Stadium on February 24th 2013; the Swans hammer Bradford City 5-0 to win their first major trophy - the first time the League Cup was won by an non-English club.
Famous fans? Allegedly local girl Catherine Zeta-Jones is a big fan but she’s never been spotted in a Swansea City scarf, neither has hubbie Michael Douglas. Of course Swansea City plays in the English League but is a proud Welsh club – ‘real’ name Clwb Pêl-droed Dinas Abertawe.
