Reading vs Swansea, Championship Playoff Final: Open Thread

Over 40,000 fans left their homes in Wales this morning and invaded London to cheer on Swansea City in the Championship Playoff Final against Reading (live today at 10am on Fox Soccer Channel for viewers in the United States). More than 40,000 Reading supporters will be in Wembley too for what promises to be a loud and passionate crowd cheering on their club. The winning club will be the most substantial prize in world soccer.

As a Swansea City supporter, it’s hard for me to type this right now. I just want to match to start so the Swans can calm my nerves and play the game I know they’re capable of playing — a beautiful sight to see with lots of one-touch passing, quick runs down the flanks and creating excellent chances in front of goal. That’s not to take anything away from Reading who are equally capable. This promises to be a very exciting final with so much on the line for both teams (and both sets of supporters).
