    I was at that QPR game it was sweltering and they ran out of cold drinks before half time. WE also weren't top at the end of the day as I think Fulham either won or lost by 6

    On this day 53 years ago, my late father drove us to London (mainly A40). We stayed in Sussex Gardens near Paddington

    On this day 53 years ago, my late father and I were at Wembley to see England win 4-2 ..... the same scoreline as 45 years later when the Swans beat Reading! Now the Swans win made me ‘really happy!’ <laugh>

    On this day 41 years ago, Swansea 4 v 4 Rotherham.

    We were 1 - 4 down: Dai Gwyther got a hat-trick for them.

    Eddie May had a last minute ‘goal’ disallowed for us <steam>

    As Max would say, I know coz I was there <cheers>

    On this day 90 years ago, my childhood, and all-time, Swans favourite was born ..... Ivor Allchurch

    I can still remember one Summer’s afternoon in the late 1960s on Caswell Bay when I got his and Len’s autographs .... boy was I star struck and completely lost for words in front of them. <cheers>
