According to a recent study, Swansea City fans are the happiest Premier League football fans on social networking site Twitter!

You do wonder how companies like ‘Shine communications’ carry out such studies to reach their findings. Checking and reading tweets from people they know for definite are fans of the respective clubs and categorising them all as positive or negative.

There were times when some Swansea City fans weren’t so happy on twitter. Believe it or not Garry Monk was getting some criticism around the time we lost 2-0 away at West Brom, and for the style of football that was on display.

But a superb run soon followed, and the fans were soon happy again as they completed memorable League doubles over the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal.

Swansea City fans should be amongst the happiest though, in general – rather than on a particular website.

They’re playing excellent football in the Premier League year in year out, and often look guaranteed to finish in a solid mid-table place – or higher as last season proved.

Swansea fans were 15th lowest for twitter activity in the study, with Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea below them.

Despite poor seasons for Burnley (relegated) and Aston Villa – just surviving in 17th place last season, they were 2nd and 3rd respectively for ‘happiest fans’, with the Swans number 1.

Swansea City fans may have even more reason to be happy this week as long-term target Franck Tabanou is expected to complete a move this week after under-going a medical. The Frenchman would be the second free agent to sign this Summer following the arrival of Andre Ayew.
