COMPETITION: Win new book "Swansea City's Greatest Games"!

Thanks to our buddies over at you can get your hands on a copy of "Swansea City's Greatest Games"

Swansea is a nice place. And a small one! Chris Carra - owner/founder of - who I have known for a few years and whom I played football with for the mighty FC Clydach (before my premature retirement through injury), is a man of many talents. Blogger, journalist, winger, right-back, and now he can add another string to his bow - author. 

His debut effort looks at the greatest games in our history, going back to the formation of the club and taking in games in each decade up to the present day. It's well worth a read, and thanks to his generosity I have a copy to give away! We have a good relationship - I like to think of us as the Beano & Dandy of the Swansea football blog world - and it's mighty nice of him to give us a copy of what is undoubtedly a must-read for Swansea fans.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning it is to make sure you're following @TheSwanseaWay on Twitter, and comment on this article explaining which game you think is the greatest in our history - and why. The winner will be chosen a week from today just before the Man City game.
