Hello everyone,

I'm the long-time Swansea fan from Czechia and only recently I have discovered your excellent fan site. I have signed up just today (thanks KevinE ;) ) and so I wanted to say hello and introduce myself a bit. You all here seem to be a nice big Welsh family :) and I think you should know something about the complete stranger.

I wonder how many Swansea fans can be in my country but not many (if any!) I guess (are there any foreign fan groups anyway?). My "relationship" with the SCFC started back in 1996 when I first played then the Championship Manager, now Football Manager game. In those days there was no Czech league(s) available in the game so I started to search for an English club I could manage and all I knew for sure was that it shouldn't be a Premiership club but rather a lower league club with ambitions to battle for promotions. Probably by the ordinance I have chosen... Swansea and it turned out be the 'love for the first sight' :grin: Since then I use to play for Swansea not only in the FM series but in the EA's FIFA series, too. As my passion for Swansea continued I started to look for news about the real-life Swansea and eventually browsed to www.swanseacityafc.co.uk. So that's my story, hope it's not too pathetic :crazy:

Swansea forever!

P. S.: Your favourite Welsh beer -> :beer: <- World's famous Czech Pilsner

I know somebody from a different forum who tells a similar story. I think hes from Switzerland or somewhere around there and got into the Swans by managing them on Football Manager. I remembering him saying he liked our badge.

Anyway, Bonjour

Welcome. Another foreign member who joins through a game (usually Footy Manager)

Swansea - By the Sea, South Wales (not England) not a bad side... um... Instant Custard is rumoured to be invented here. Bet a lot of locals didn't know that either.
