Go Swans!

My local football team are in the play-offs at Wembley today.  If they win, they'll be in the Premiership next season.

Excitement is huge - saw cars out on Saturday with flags flying.  Forty thousand fans have traveled to London for the match and the capital will be inundated with heol..

Go Swans!

Hi Liz:

I'm listening live but I can only get the Reading station! I'd love to hear the Swansea station but I'll take 3-0 HT!

Just 45 more minutes!

What a game!

We have a beautiful new stadium in Swansea - so visitors will enjoy the trip. Can bring the family and leave them on the beach!

Two years ago, I went down to Wembley to watch Burnley in the playoffs. I'll never forget the day the motorway became a sea of claret and blue. It was so exciting!

Congratulations to the Swans. Enjoy life in the Prem!

Hi Liz ~ I'm not much of a sports fan but my husband began following some of the English Football scores in order to have something to talk about with a former boss. He told me that Swansea will be the first team from Wales in the Premier League. I know a bit about how the system works. It's so great that they won.

I just finished reading Tempted by Trouble. Loveage/Elle, Sean and Rosie combined to make a wonderful read. I just loved the sayings from Rosie's Diary. I am sitting here grinning just thinking about the book. It gave me the warm fuzzies.

Hi Kaelee! Yes, it's a huge deal for Swansea and Wales and loads of money from TV rights for the club. They've come from near bankrupcy and being out of the league altogether to this in eight years. Pretty amazing.

And I'm so glad you loved Ellie, Sean and Rosie. :)

Hi Shirley

How wonderful for you to have been there when Burnley went up. I hope the Jacks behaved themselves after the match!
