Swansea City vs Hull City, Premier League Gameweek 15: Open Thread

liberty stadium 600x450 Swansea City vs Hull City, Premier League Gameweek 15: Open Thread

Have a drink today every time a pundit or commentator mentions the 2003 match between Swansea and Hull City where the Welsh club was one match away from being relegated to non-league football (and possibly going out of existence altogether). Ten years later, the two clubs face off against each other in the Premier League for first time, with Steve Bruce’s high-flying Tigers taking on the Swans at Liberty Stadium.

For viewers in the United States, the match kicks off at 3pm ET on NBCSN.

Starting line-ups:

Swansea: Tremmel, Tiendalli, Chico, Williams (c), Davies, Canas, de Guzman, Shelvey, Dyer, Hernandez, Michu

Subs: Zabret, Amat, Taylor, Lamah, Routledge, Pozuelo, Donnelly.

Hull City: McGregor, Figueroa, Bruce, Chester, Davies, Meyler, Huddlestone, Graham, Livermore, Sagbo, Elmohamady.

Subs: Harper, Rosenior, Koren, Brady, McShane, Boyd, Faye.

In team news, Swansea welcome back Michu after the Spaniard has been out for several weeks due to injury. Bizarrely, though, the Swans have been playing better without him, so it’ll be interesting to see how his return to the side makes a difference or not.

Before, during or after today’s match, join the conversation in the comments section below with fellow soccer fans from around the world.
