Alan Curtis: Michael Laudrup's Swansea City have outdone Toshack team
ALAN Curtis reckons Swansea City’s current crop have eclipsed John Toshack’s heroes of the early 1980s.
Toshack’s class of ’82 famously pushed for the Division One title before a late-season slump saw them end that campaign in sixth.
Michael Laudrup’s side, meanwhile, are hoping to secure an eight-place Premier League finish by beating Fulham this weekend.
And with the Capital One Cup already in the bag, Curtis believes this season will go down as Swansea’s finest yet in more than a century of history.
“The Premier League is a world away from the old First Division,” said Curtis, a star player in the Toshack era and now Swansea’s first-team coach.
“And when you add in the fact that we have won a trophy, I would say this has to go down as our best season.”
