Swans Soar

swan-in-attack-mode-2The young miss remained in bed today. Rough first week of school, if only two days. Rough match, too, for her number one overseas side.

Wilfried Bony didn’t get either goal today, but he was huge–literally–in the figuring of each one.

I was expecting a 2-2 draw, so I’m pleased the Swans let in one fewer.

Eventually the young miss awoke and emerged from bed, but only to go yard saling with her mom.

    That’s a very fine win to start the season though for selfish reasons I’d like to think that it says more about Rags than Swansea.

    Strange day. On aggregate, the home sides took 5 from 21 points with only Arsenal taking 3 points.

    Great result for Swansea, lucky escape for my team (Arsenal). It’s going to be an interesting season.

    Dare I hope for a 7th place finish above Man U? I’ve enjoyed the return of EPL so much, I was still hungry to watch today after missing the early games. Found an old MLS match on YouTube for which I had forgotten the result.

    Mondays off this year, so I can enjoy the mid-afternoon match between my new #2 vs Chelsea. Clarets? What is a claret?

    It would be nice to see Chelsea drop points this evening. Upon their return to the top flight in 2009 after a 33 year absence, Burnley shocked ManU 1-0 in the season opener at Turf Moor so there is some precedent for a big upset. .

    I continue to be fascinated by the stratification of EPL clubs among the haves, the wannabes, and the “just happy to be here.” At what age does it dawn upon the young West Ham or Sunderland fan that one’s club will never win the league and how does one continue on after such a revelation? Acceptance? Denial? Hope?
