Not really a derby and both clubs have no time at all for the 'orrible blue (sometimes red) lot in between yet, given our mutual disdain for Cardiff and admiration of Lee Trundle, there's no love lost between City and the Jacks even though there's 80 miles and a dirty great river between us. They aren't playing their main rivals this season and we haven't played ours in decades :whistle: and are unlikely to for a long, long time so it takes on greater meaning I suppose although I would put the sags, Cardiff and Swindon ahead of the Swans for us.
Games at the Vetch used to be hairy to say the least but like games at the Liberty, matches at the Gate are a much more sanitised occasion nowadays.

Swansea seem to be improving of late but we're a very confident side at the mo with 12 unbeaten and I can't see that ending on Saturday, especially if the likes of Webster are back.

Further additions aside,
2-0 / 2-1 home win (Fammy, Palmer - McBurnie)

25,714.

One of the tastier games at AG this season especially with it being a 3pm.

O’Leary (please)
Pisano Kalas Baker Da Silva
Eliasson Brownhill Pack Palmer CoD
Diedhiou

That’s the team to play, Johnson’s gonna come in for some stick when he inevitably plays Weimann & Paterson.

1-1. (Palmer 69’, McBurnie 12’)

24,890 (3,570)

Looking forward to this one with a big away following. We usually play poorly in front of a large home crowd but Swansea arent up to much. Narrow home win.

Even first half but only 1 winner after half time.
To be fair, Swansea play some decent stuff but are a tad toothless, especially if McBurnie is well shackled as he was on Saturday.
As for the idiots, I suggest we don't even discuss them.
I'm loving watching Webster, he is absolute class!

Just a heads up for the Swans fans who were at the game, the police in Bristol knocked on a few doors today and arrested a few City fans. No doubt their colleagues in South Wales are doing the same thing.

They ought to try catching some actual criminals sometime.
