Hi,
"Swansea have hardly been prolific themselves, and they probably pass it too much."
--You can treat it as you like, I'd rather interpret it as 'today' relying on a urban dic's definition.

Sorry, "Swansea have hardly been prolific themselves, and on a bad day they probably pass it too much."

I don't understand the question. What is the 'it' that you refer to?

'On a bad day', which I couldn't find a plausible definition for.

No "on a bad day" would mean when they are not playing their best. The opposite would be "on a good day": "on a good day, Swansea can compete with any team in the league"

When they are not playing well / when things aren't going well for them.
It doesn't relate to any specific day and doesn't even have to be a particular 24-hour period. It shouldn't be taken that literally.
