Bradford City v Swansea City - 24th February 2013

Postby Hams » Mon Feb 04, 2013 3:00 pm

Bradford City from the 4th tier of English football will take
on Welsh side Swansea City who are in the Premier League on Sunday 24th February.

Do you have any comments or predictions?

I guess the Swans will be the favourites but the Bantams have already seen off Wigan,Arsenal and Aston Villa on their way to the final.

Lets hope that Swansea aren't providing the ball boys for this occasion!

Only a 3 days to go now until the final.

Does anyone else think it wrong that if Swansea win they will playing under an English flag in next seasons Europa League?

Surely this shouldn't be allowed as they are a Welsh club?

Any comments or predictions?

hope swansea win. they deserve it. not really into the whole underdog thing. i think bradford should put the same amount of energy into getting up the divisions like swansea did years ago

I always prefer to support the underdog and for this reason only hope that Bradford City can cause another upset!

Come on you Bantams!

I'm going for BRADFORD to win this one 2-1.

All the pressure is on Swansea, and it's only one match, so they can pull something off. Whatever Phil Parkinson has been doing, has worked. It may be negative, but they should flood the defence, get bodies in front of goal, and catch them on the break. Get a lucky corner or two, and there we go.

Come on you Bantams!

I would love it if Bradford won, but it is a very nice consolation that if they don't, then Swansea will. Whoever wins, there will be an enormous amount of happiness amongst the winners' fans.

Congrats to Swansea for winning the Capital one cup and qualifying for next seasons Europa League!

It was one of the most one sided finals ever but credit to runners up Bradford just for making it to Wembley.

Any comments on todays result?

De Guzman should of let Dyer get his hat trick from the penalty spot.

I also thought that was out of order!

It would have been the first time a player had scored a hat trick in a league cup final had he scored

If it was me I would have given the lad the ball.

Congratulations to Swansea City. Wonderful win for them, and the Swansea fans can feel very proud of their club. I bet there will be a massive street party in Swansea today - the fans will never have dreamt about this day coming - well, it has, and they should celebrate it with delight :)

De Guzman scored in the last minute aswell so it's not like he was gonna finish the game with nothing.
I feel sorry for Dyer, he's been there longer than De Guzman, he deserved that hat trick just for his performance before that pen.

de guzman must have been the designated penalty taker. what if dyer missed and bradford somehow came back. you have to be professional with half an hour to go. glad swansea won. was going for them from the start. maybe bradford can put some of the hard work they put into the cup run and make there way up the divisions like swansea have over the years. that is why swansea deserve it more

Yeah, good point. I just feel a hat trick would of been historic for Swansea FC and he'd be remembered for some time.
