RE: Here, we support our local teams!
Looking forward to Swansea's stint in the group stages in the Europa League, especially the matches against Valencia. We've currently got 8 Spanish players in our side, so they'll feel right at home when they play the away matches.

RE: Here, we support our local teams!
Syracuse has several excellent collegiate-level sports teams including, I didn't know this, a soccer (European football) team:

Syracuse Orange is pretty much used by all of the athletic teams of Syracuse University it seems. Looking at this list of athletic teams is interesting- rugby eh? Big Grin

Outside of the municipal level the only other teams that I root for are the New York Yankees- even though I'm not of a baseball fan- and the Buffalo Bills, one of the staple teams of (American) football.

Well, Swansea beat Valencia 0-3 away last Thursday, so that was a huge turn up for the books. Alas, we lost 0-3 away defending our cup title to Birmingham who are in the division below us. Arsenal at home on Saturday, so that should be interesting.

After Valencia, it was St Gallen at home. Quite a bit of rough and tumble but we managed to overcome them 1-0 which puts us at the top of group A. On my way home from work, there must have been about 1,000 St Gallen fans enjoying themselves in Swansea City centre. They were a very refined bunch, but what do you expect from a club which is in the wealthiest area of Europe?

Table

Swansea...............2...0...0...4...0.​..4...6
FC St Gallen...........2...1...0...1...2...1..​.3
Valencia CF............2...0...1...2...3...-1...3
Kuban Krasnodar.....2...0...0...2...0...-4...0

We're entertaining Krasnodar on Thursday 24th October 2013, so expectations will be high

Canadian. Hockey regular season opener on right now as I type. Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs. Leafs suck, of course. That's as Zen as one can get about NHL hockey.

Rather gutted that we didn't beat Krasnodar at home last night. Even though they're bottom of the table, they were a really tricky team and I sensed that we were going to come across a banana skin last night - in the last minute of extra time, they scored a penalty.

Table

Swansea...............3...0...0...4...0.​​..4...7
Valencia CF............3...0...1...2...3...-1...6
FC St Gallen...........3...1...0...1...2...1..​​.3
Kuban Krasnodar.....3...0...0...2...0...-4...1

Next stop - Krasnodar away on Thursday 7th November!!

Athletic is 5th in the standings thus far, with a record of 6-2-3, behind Villarreal and ahead of Getafe. This is quite better than usual. Smile

Biarritz, however, has been having an awful season thus far. Their record is 1-9 and are currently at the bottom of the standings. none

Yesterday, we beat Man Utd 1-2 away in the FA Cup. Sorry Os, don't know if you support City, United or neither. none

We're either up against Birmingham City, Bristol Rovers or Crawley Town next

We held Napoli to a 0-0 draw at home and we were by far the stronger team, but missed our chances. Next week, we're off to Italy!
