Jack Magazine: Wembley Special
1st March 2013
As weeks go, it hasn't been a bad one for Swansea City.
Last Sunday the players made history by recording a 5-0 win at Wembley to lift the Capital One Cup and secure the club's first major trophy.
That win over Bradford City also rewrote the history books by becoming the biggest winning margin in League Cup final history, surpassing Manchester United's 4-0 win over Wigan in 2006.
Following the euphoria of that win, the celebrations continued this week as the players and staff went on an open top bus ride through the city centre where they were greeted by thousands of jubilant fans that had lined the streets.
And in keeping with the feel-good factor that has surrounded the city this week, Jack Magazine has a special 76-page Wembley edition ahead of this weekend's Barclays Premier League clash against Newcastle United.
Apart from all the usual features, we have an 11-page special that focuses on that incredible day at Wembley and all the reaction that followed.
We have a match report from Sunday's game as well as reaction from Garry Monk and Ashley Williams, the two players that held the trophy aloft in front of the Jack Army at Wembley.
We also spoke to Pablo Hernandez about winning his first trophy in English football and many other snapshots from other members of the squad.
We reflect on what the media and pundits had to say about the Swans' success, as well as some of the fans' memories and pictures from a day to remember in the capital.
As well as this, we have a match report from our last home game against Queens Park Rangers, former Swans defender Terry Phelan takes centre stage in our 'Where Are They Now?' section and we look ahead to upcoming games against West Brom and Arsenal.
And if that wasn't enough for you, in keeping with the centenary celebrations we have a special feature in every programme this season that charts the history of the Swans in bite-size instalments.
The new-look bumper 76-page magazine is a must for every Swans fan and will be available around the ground, the club shop and online, plus Slee Stores in Plasmarl, Coggers on Wind Street and Browns Newsagent in Landore.
Jack Magazine . . . it really is too good to miss.
