In the past two years, I’ve heard and read so many cliche stories about the rise of Swansea City. Not that none of them were true, but they’re the same tired, old accounts of how the Swans were down on their luck and then they bounced back.
So, as a Swansea City supporter and a fan of the sport in general, it was refreshing to watch Swansea City: The Fall And Rise, a new TV documentary from BBC One. It was a breath of fresh air because there’s plenty of match footage as well as interviews with the supporters and the people behind the scenes who were responsible for the club’s meteoric rise.
Whether you like Swansea City or not, it’s worth watching. After watching the 30-minute documentary, post your observations about the film and club in the comments section below.
