    You've jinxed yourself now. It's bound to be Sunderland so you'll have a 9000 mile round trip instead of a 10 miler <laugh>

    They need a trim at the moment. Bloody leaves everywhere.

    Drinks round my place if Pompey go up, make a weekend of it. Plus we can all meet up with @Wooperts_duck

    On that I’m on the island today down in Shanklin.

    My only interest in the playoffs now is how Newport County does in theirs, As for the rest then i dont care who wins. Maybe Leeds i will look at as once Champions elect a few months ago to not being favorites in the playoffs...

    Pre-Season Friendlies

    The Swans are preparing for an anticipated return to League 1 when they head to The People's Pension Stadium on Saturday, July 13 (3pm) to take on Crawley, who finished 19th in League Two under Italian manager Gabriele Cioffi.

    The clubs last met in 2012 when a late Garry Monk header saw the visitors progress 3-2 in the League Cup - a competition which the Swans went on to win that season.

    League One side Bristol Rovers will then host the Swans at the Memorial Ground on Tuesday, July 23 (7.45pm). The two sides met in a pre-season friendly back in July 2016, which the visitors won 5-1. If Oli McBurnie and Connor Roberts haven’t been sold by the Yanks, it will see them return to the club where they spent time on loan during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons.

    Further pre-season fixtures will be announced in due course.
