9am: Swansea City AFC - Premier League!

At 9am this morning, the fixture list for the Premier League and Football League 2011/12 season was published and it put into stark reality, what was achieved on that wonderful day at Wembley back at the end of May.


It really hasn't sunk in and we all knew that it wouldn't until this day - the day when the reality of the situation would be down in black and white.

This is, that black and white!

Swansea City will be proudly flying the Welsh flag against the best that the Premier League has to offer and will be welcoming the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and dare I say it, Aston Villa to the Liberty Stadium!

They begin away to Manchester City and then have a mouth-watering first home match against Wigan Athlectic - managed by their old manager Roberto Martinez - there'll be no love lost there! Following a home match against Sunderland, they then have away matches against Arsenal and Chelsea!

  1. Who will you be cheering for when they welcome Villa?

  2. Will have to support the Swans. They're going to need every point to fight off relegation and we can't risk them just being one season wonders so as much as it goes against 19 years of being a Villain, for the sake of Welsh football, I'll be backing Swansea!
