There is a sprinkling of National Front supporters amongst the Swansea crowd that display the Union Jack, I know one of them who is a right oddball

The odd thing about the odd balls is that it's nothing new; so why today? :?

Clearly no proper identity as a support group, what with most (not quite all) of them being 'newbies' to football and all that... ;) :laughing6:
"Recreational offence". In short, if you're the kind of person who spends valuable time looking to be offended, it's offensive.

Proud to be Welsh and British. Can never understand the booing of a flag that my family and grandparents fought under.

All about oppions I guess.

Hope we never see political flags at our ground. Why would anyone have a red hand flag at a football match? It’s no surprise that swansea, being a pretty white town, attracts these sort of Neanderthal types and those other freaks who video themselves at their ground booing taking the knee. Can’t recall the name they go by, which I’m glad about. :bluescarf:

The Red Hand of Ulster has nothing to do with racism. God knows why the Jacks have one though.

I know it’s nothing to do with all that ulster bollocks, they seem to attract the far right also down there. Maybe they see the jacks as an easy touch club to use as a tool to promote themselves.

Don't they have an Irish Bar down there? :?

Nope we just see virtue signalling and support for Marxist groups amongst our players. If you allow one voice the other has to be allowed as well. For this thee can’t be no argument.

One of the reasons why Swansea’s fly those British and ulster flags is because they class Cardiff city supporters as welsh nationalists because they follow wales they fly those flags. Because they are saying they are British not welsh Cardiff city fans are not nationalities we are welsh and we love following wales I’m welsh British and catholic proud of all three but not a nationalist or unionist Swansea don’t know what they are half the time

Is he from the Sandfields area?

It may be the same one I know.
Edmund: Have you ever been to Wales, Baldrick?
Baldrick: No, but I've often thought that I'd like to.
Edmund: Well don't. It's a ghastly place. Huge gangs of tough, sinewy men roam the valleys terrifying people with their close-harmony singing
