For those of us of a certain age the name of Neil Robinson will be remembered with many happy memories from the Tosh era and those halycon days where we were one of the best sides in the country.

It was therefore with sadness that I read on Twitter a short time ago of the passing of Neil at the age of just 65 from a Cardiac Arrest.

The thoughts of all the Swansea City family will be with Neil’s own loved ones at this time and we thank him for all the memories.   Swansea City has lost a legend.

Been watching the Swans since the very late 1970s and running the Planet Swans website (in all its current and previous guises since the summer of 2001 As it stood JackArmy.net was right at the forefront of some of the activity against Tony Petty back in 2001, breaking many of the stories of the day as fans stood against the actions where the local media failed. Was involved with the Swans Supporters Trust from 2005, for the large part as Chairman before standing down in the summer of 2020.
