Upon their return to the Premier League in the 2011/12 season, Bolton Wanderers gave Queens Park Rangers a reality check in what was required to compete inEngland’s top flight. It doesn’t get much worse than a 4-0 defeat in front of an expectant home crowd (Who’d have thought that Bolton would be the ones to drop down to the Championship?). QPR then steadied the ship somewhat to secure their Premier League status for another season on a dramatic last day, despite losing. A new season looming and Rangers fans could be safe in the assumption that nothing could be worse than the previous season’s opening day, right? Wrong. Swansea City, under new management, bossed the game and ran out resounding winners with a 5-0 victory.
