Seeing a Game at Swansea City

July 20, 2021

Seeing a game at Swansea City would seem, without context, to be a pretty standard English Football League experience--except it's in Wales, of course! Not that it lacks interest or passion or drama -- certainly it was the exact opposite when I visited in March 2017, when they were in the Premier League. But if…

New English Soccer Fan Chat:
Steve of Millwall FC

March 11, 2021

One of the more memorable nights of my English football groundhopping adventures was December 29, 2017, when I saw QPR play Millwall in The Den.
