Dances with Wolves….

Over the 100 years of the Swans’ existence, we have played Wolves 31 times home and away, league and cup. There was a long stretch of nearly 50 years when we did not play them in the league, between 1932 and 1981. We did play them in two FA Cup matches, both of which saw the Swans knocked out.  At home our record against the Midlands’ club is very even – won 5, lost 6, drawn 5.  I think it is fair to say that the upcoming game on Saturday is one of the few over the years where the Swans can definitely be counted the favourites.

Here is an extract from the South Wales Evening Post of January 5th, 1957, when the Swans went down fighting at Molineux, to lose eventually 5 – 3 in the 3rd round. To make matters worse, C*****f beat Leeds away on the same afternoon!
