"A book that any member of the Jack Army would be proud to display on their bookshelf." --South Wales Evening Post
"Selecting 50 great games from 100 years of history is no mean feat! However Chris Carra has come pretty close to the list of games that all of us Swansea City fans would choose. There can be few clubs with a more colourful history than the Swans and this book records some of the club's greatest moments on the pitch. This wonderful trip down Swansea City's memory lane is essential reading for the Jack Army, of all ages and generations!" --Kevin Johns, Club Chaplain
"From the rainy nights on the North Bank, to the epic cup-raising glory days at Wembley, this fascinating, well-researched and highly entertaining journey through 50 of Swansea City's finest games is a magnificent read for all members of the Jack Army. If you follow the Swans, you MUST own this book!" --Mark Rees, South Wales Evening Post

Having been a more recent convert myself, I approached the book with a bit more skepticism, especially as I wasn't alive during the old games and recognise only a handful of names.
None of this matters as the author's witty writing makes the matches come alive and seem a lot more accessible. The writer goes in to hilarious detail in some of the match reports and paints a very clear picture of the Swans' best matches over the years.
This book is essential reading for any Swansea City fan, either an old fan like my dad or a younger fan like myself. I hope the author continues to write more as the book is really easy to read; especially as the match reports are sufficiently succinct and read more like friends' observational banter in a pub than a weighty tome on match history.
As I said earlier, a good read but, to me, the title is incorrect.
