Swansea City fans ‘looking gay’

A long-lost football chant for Swansea City has been revealed as describing its fans as “all looking gay”.

Historian Gwilym Games made the discovery as he researched the Welsh club’s centenary.

The tune, the “Swans’ War Song” dates back to 1913 and contains the line: “Look out, here comes a crowd of jolly fellows all looking gay”.

But Phil Bethell of Swansea University confirms it’s not homophobic slur but that “the words are clearly of their time”.
