I’ve Finally Worked Out How To Use YouTube!

Well, high excitement indeed. I just kind of wanted to see how it worked, and I thought I’d share the results with you lot. The rise and fall of Swansea City in the late 1970s and early 1980s is one of football’s little curios. They looked, for a little while, like they might even be…
