Lets conclude our review of the Premier League teams. I hope these 4 posts have helped you decide which team you would like to support, and if not, well I hope you have had fun reading about the twenty teams that provide so much entertainment every week.
Premier League teams S – W
Sunderland: The Black Cats
Like their Tyne and Wear neighbors in Newcastle, Sunderland fans are one passionate group of supporters. Sunderland have enjoyed a lot of success, sadly they last won the Championship in 1936, and they did enjoy a trip to the FA Cup final in 1992, losing to Liverpool.
Since then they have suffered relegation, enjoyed promotion, fired several managers, and since their return to the Premier League are annual contenders for relegation. Last season they survived, but only just thanks to a miracle from their manager Gus Poyet in turning things around with four games to go. If you are a passionate supporter and like to wear red and white stripes Sunderland is the team for you!
Swansea City: The Swans
Swansea City, the only non-English team to play in the Premier League. Since their arrival back in the top flight in 2011-12 the team from Wales has been punching well above its weight. So much so, they won the League Cup in 2013…a remarkable achievement given The Swans narrowly avoided relegation to the Conference (the fifth tier of English football) on the final day of the 2002-03 season.
Swansea play fast flowing, attacking football and can be a handful for anyone. I would say they are a favorite ‘second team’ of many supporters and watching them just makes you smile. If you are new to the game and want to watch a team that just loves to play football and has fun, try the Swans.
