Who makes Alan Tates best Swansea City Eleven???

The Best players that Tatey played with at the club according to the legend himself

Goalkeeper: Dorus

All round good keeper, holed the clean sheet record for the club, great with feet. You could trust him with the ball and know that he could keep it and you’d get it back. Great keeper.


His record for the club speaks for itself doesn’t it. 10k I think he cost the club and he is still there and going and it is a huge testament to him. Great ability, great going forward, he’s been amazing for the club really.


One of my best friends in football, captained in every division. A massive part in our rise, he’s a real leader on and off the pitch and a great defender and organiser.


Best defender I’ve played with. Consistent strong, worst players after pre-season, he was absolutely shocking, easily the most unfit player in pre-seasons but by match day he was always on it from the word go.

Ben Davies

He was an unusual one, wasn’t on the radar for anyone within the club as a youngster to look out for or anything and then he got his chance and took it and grew and became so consistent at an early age and got his big move to Spurs.


Speaks for himself, come in about 2 weeks after me. Totally different player to what you see today. He is a real leader now. Always consistent, always able to keeps the ball. Not the best individual player to play for the club but is 100% the most important player in modern history of the club.


Again someone who outgrew the club. His ability was there for all to see from an early age. He improved year on year and then he got into the Olympic squad and you could see that he’d got better over that Summer and you knew he’d leave.


So much ability. What a player! He basically single handily kept us up last year and for that reason alone then he has to be in the team, anyone with that much ability, whether it be scoring or getting assists that keeps a side in the Premier League.


Work rate was unbelievable and he got important goals for the club. His work rate was really quality which was always appreciated when he’d be playing in front of you. He played a big part in getting promoted.


Brought goals, got 25-30 the year we got promoted, obviously the goals at Wembley will always be remembered. When we played that season we just knew that in the final third then he’d get you goals.


Obviously Fabs came in towards the end of the season and I think if we’d have had him all season then we’d have won the league not just the play-offs. We’d have got ahead of QPR and Norwich. If it wasn’t Scott then Dobbie would go on a spell where he’d score qa few and then dry up but nobody else was really chopping in with enough goals and if Fabio was there then we’d have got enough goals to win the league I think.

Missing Out: Bodde
Unlukcy to miss out, he missed so many games but he was such a talent.
