Whenever we beat a top side they always play poorly. Now we have twonked a side from a lower division it is boring so the FA should do away with replays. End of story. They are now feeling sorry for West Ham because they have to play in an unsuitable stadium. Such a shame thete is not a decent football radio station around.
I don't know what it is with this site but it does not live easily with my IPad and my fat fingers. I have just stumbled upon a list and it appears I have been reporting abuse like buggary. Could the Mods please note I have never intentionally reported any abuse. Many thanks.
Apologies for not bumping up one of the old threads. I am having trouble finding them. Two links below. Firstly this is a video promoting the case for Morriston as being the site for the new MTC for S Wales briefly states the case supported by all, or most, of the MPs in SW Wales. It is surprising, or not, that all the relevant AMs are missing although I did see Julie James come up on a Facebook version of this. Where are the rest? What are they doing about it? It reinforces for me my now held view that we would be better off without WAG with our MPs fighting our case in Westminster. The second is an online template to send in your views. The consultation ends on the 5th February so not much time to get your views in. It is a template letter that can be sent via email to the Consultation and is available on the Geraint Davies website.
I know a lot of these MPs are not the flavour of the month but I think we need to play ball. God knows why though. The argument is so strong that they should be banging heads together in Cardiff Bay until the arrive at the correct decision.
I know I shouldn't, and I get some flack for doing it, but I can't help watching the teams around us for results going our way. Palace have done a job on Man City and picked up a point and WBA seem to be doing similar with the Arse. If things stay as they are we are bottom again and 3 points from safety.
Edit 4 points as our GD has been shot to sh!trags.
I know the Jocks get some bad press on here but you have to hand it to them. It may be a pub League but the passion and support shown in this match is incredible. Nil nil but very entertaining. Rangers giving Brenda a right flight with the Celtic keeper making two worldies in the second half to keep them out.
One poster has already said that the Trust is finished but I disagree. It has to exist in some form in the future. Maybe an amalgamation of the various groups that are out there at the moment. I also think it is unfair on the likes of Lisa and Clasey who have stood up to be counted and are in there to make things happen and put wrongs to right. We tend to forget one piece of good work the Trust did in scuppering the first takeover deal before being disgracefully marginalised by Jenkins and Co. to allow the second buyout to go through. I was thinking of the role of the Trust in the future. Who knows there may be a working relationship with the Yanks, or whoever they sold on to. A successful club would be the goal of both parties, albeit for very different reasons. In such circumstances instead of just vetting potential buyers could the Trust also be actively involved in sourcing future buyers for the club? I assume the owners would either be the Yanks or another set of investors trying to make a quick buck so I doubt there would be many objections from the speculators. This way we might actually get an owner that gives an eff about the club. I guess it would also mean we need to retain a strong shareholding in the club. Any views would be appreciated. I am happy to be shot down in flames as this is an area for which I have very little knowledge :-)
Who is the ' expert' Laura Mcallister who thinks we should have 50 % more AMs in. Cardiff Bay at a cost of £10m per annum? This is a scandal when we also have 22 Local Authorities sitting below them. All this for a population of just 3m. Less LAs and an Assembley that actually gave a toss about the rest of Wales and I might say the have an argument. Apparently some AMs have to sit on 3 committees at the moment .....awwwww.
Not prepared to release the full findings on how Brexit could affect this country. In danger of being held in contempt of Parliament. Apparently there are 58 to 60 areas to be reported on, or so Davis said on the Andrew Marr show some months ago. Now he says there are not that many and information is being held back on those that have been put before Westminster. Imho the Tories are warming to a WTO low tax and wage economy and are actually aiming for a so called 'hard Brexit,. Hardly surprising as Europe have us by the balls and we have a devious, lazy, complacent politician in charge of the whole shooting match.
Torn a new one by Southampton The corpse is kicking slightly with Siggy but Ash in one Hell of a mess. I know they have started from a higher bar but their fall from grace has been more dramatic than ours. Dithering over replacing their manager as well. I wonder if they are have been reading the same book as Jenkins 'DOF for Dummies' ;-)
On BBC Cardiff now. Mervelling at their fastest growing metropolis and looking at its 'fantastic history'. A population of 2000 pre industrial revolution...... Meanwhile they promise 'Wales Live' later on. They are going to 'dig deep' to unearth the issues affecting us. Guess who is going to be one of the diggers? Jason Mohammed...... you can't make it up.
Bed blocking. One of the many reasons the NHS has problems . Some beut has suggested all those living near a hospital, with a spare bedroom and an en suite, can look after these poor souls whilst they recuperate. The patient will have 3 meals a day and the home owner will be trained. Payment for said owner will be in excess of £1k a month. I can see them queuing up for this in Derwen Fawr and Rhydypandy. This would provide the perfect environment for sharks and the unscrupulous to ply their trade. Only in the land of Dope and Tory.........
Just watched this on the One Show. They are having a one billion pound Dock redevelopment. The centrepiece is a fantastic museum built like a ships hull jutting out into the water. Scotland has two major cities that attract major investment yet even a centre like Dundee can benefit from a massive development like this. How can Wales with only 2 million less population only put its eggs in one Cardiff basket? The rest of Wales is truly missing out massively. We cannot expect the equivalent of Scotland due to only having a 3 million population. However, even taking this into account, there seems a massive desparity between the two.
Anyone heard anything about this before? These are units for mothers with Mental Health issues and best serve communities by being close to them. Not centralised. There are many scattered around the Country, including Bristol. There are none in Wales though and a 'panel of experts' have been sitting and will issue their recommendations as to where the first Unit in Wales will be sited tomorrow. I won't preempt where I think this will be placed but it is one to keep an eye on....
BBC Cardiff gleefully reporting this morn that a NPT Councillor had raised concerns about the lack of progress. Has anyone seen anything happening to date? Ominously those involved in developing the CD have said it is good local councillors raise concerns. Who is this unnamed Councillor? I would like to shake his hand. Could this be going the same way as the MTC, rail electrification, city centre development and the Lagoon? Meanwhile our local councillors fret about bins and financial cut backs whilst messers James and Hedges rack up their charity coffee morning attendances.
Not much footy on tonight. I am currently watching Mr Blobby's old club Harvre AC v L'Orient. The standard seems ok. The surprising thing though is the stadium. Superb with screens either side and a 25,000 plus capacity. It seems Bob moved to a poorer stadium when he came to us. Albeit our crowds are much bigger. Away side one up the moment with 30 mins gone.
I see Boris is still hard at work at his project of becoming PM. He wants to pay for Public Sector pay rises by cutting staffing levels even further. We need not fret for those losing their jobs though. The Private Sector is in such fine fettle they can take up the slack of those losing their employment . I am sure there are still plenty of fruit picking, Uber driving and hairdressing jobs around. Corbyn must be rubbing his hands in glee with this buffoon spouting his nonsense.
For those travelling into the City Centre from Gowerton and Three Crosses and westwards. They are setting up 3 way temporary traffic lights in Dunvant. They are located outside Dunvant Workies on the hill, Dunvant Square and on Dunvant hill near the Hungry Horse / junction with Broadmead. It is carnage out there now. God knows what it will be like at rush hour tomorrow morning. It maybe something minor like road lining and they will have packed up by the morning but it is covering a large section of road. Avoid at all costs would be my advice if this lot is still in operation tomorrow.
