25-Man Metaphysical Roster: Swansea City A.F.C.


[Cyril the Swan, Swansea's one time mascot, appearing in court for charges
of being too disruptive, in character, lolol]

[25-Man Metaphysical Roster is a football dork methodology meant to establish a listing of players who have been most active for English Premier League teams in their past 100 non-friendly matches. Essentially, it is calculated by minutes played, but weighted towards most recent games. The end result is a listing of the 25 players in a team’s recent history who have had the largest hand on their metaphysical sporting trajectory. The English Premier League was chosen because it is the highest level of football played in an English speaking country, and I speak English. Also, it is what comes on TV here in the USA, where I fucking live. And yet still I should clarify I hate English, and also America. Thus maybe I hate myself. Should I not fail in maintaining my unpaid deadline, a new 25-Man Metaphysical Roster will appear on the 1st and 15th of every month.]

Was extra sad I had fallen off when Swansea City came back around because it would’ve marked a full season of survival of this project as well as the team. They were just starting to climb out of the basement of Premier League, but as I write this there’s a couple weeks left and our fate is still not sure for next season. Fucking football.
