Thousands of Swansea City FC’s Â fervent “Jack Amy” will be on the move to the newly named Etihad Stadium later today to cheer their club on in their big debut Premier League game against Manchester City, (M.C.F.C.)
But the odds of Swansea City beating the super-rich team are stacked against them with bookmakers quoting odds of 15-1 on the Swans beating the team that is owned by super-wealthy billionaire Sheik Mansour of Abu Dhabi.
“Everone’s expecting us to lose, I think we’ll surprise a few people and a few teams.
“I think it’s a good thing we’re the underdogs going into games.
“Everyone’s writing us off right now.
“Every time we go into a game there’s no pressure whatsoever.
“From my point of view, and Â obviously with the team, we can play our normal game.
“We can’t get criticised for what we’re already doing because they’re writing us off already.
“Everyone’s excited to kick-off the season.
“There’s a real big buzz still going around Swansea and the team”, said Swansea’s top goal scorer last season Scott Sinclair, 22, who joined the Swans from Chelsea last summer.
Massive Swansea fan and popular Broadcaster Mal Pope describes tonight Premier League debut game clash between the Swans and the Blues as pretty much a David and Goliath affair:
“Goliath had never heard of David until he felt those five stones.
“People have to remember all the pressure will be on Manchester City.
“They are the team who have spent tens of millions and are the team everyone expects to win.
“I think there could be a surprise because not everyone can deal with pressure.”
The swan’s debut Premiership league game against the almighty Blues kicks off tonight from the Etihad Stadium at 8.pm (20:00)
