Egg Chasing Causes Change

As with any football season, Swansea City are forced to change the dates of some home games to avoid clashes with the egg chasers in Cardiff.
First off, the small matter of World Champions Australia in Cardiff on November 24 means that our ‘mouth-watering’ clash with Hartlepool will be bought forward one day.
Also bought forward is the game with Southend, now on February 15 because the frogs are in Cardiff and we suffer again because the eye-ties are there on March 2 so Hull is now on St David’s Day.
Next up for a change is the game away at Bristol Rovers. Originally scheduled for January 23, this will now be played the day before.
Wales also take on the Jocks on April 6 so our game with York may also be subject to a change.
All these changes, and Cardiff sign a player for £700k on the same day. Hands up if you can remember us spending 700k in a decade?
Say what you like about Cardiff but that shows their intentions at the moment.
