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 able to challenge Liverpool at the top of the table. On the opening day of the 1981-82 season, they played Leeds United at the Vetch Field and, well, they battered them. They finished that season in sixth place, but were relegated the next season, and by 1985 they were facing a winding up order in the high court. The following year, they were back in Division Four. For Leeds United, European Cup finalists in 1975, the season ended in relegation, and they wouldn’t get promoted back until 1990.
