Threatening referees
at 13:33 15 Oct 2017

I was at Ashleigh Road refereeing a game yesterday and had no issues at all, in fact a lot of the parents thanked me for doing the game and turning up. I have been lucky that I've never really had any incidents at Junior Level with parents/managers, but unfortunately it does happen now and again.

The Swansea Junior League is well run and luckily the West Wales do punish behaviour from managers/parents when reported. I think it's a sad way of life that people react in certain ways in football, especially kid's football, where it should be about the enjoyment of playing football. Thankfully incidents like the above are few and far between and I do not know what happened yesterday or who was involved. Hopefully the right punishment is reached and the referee in question, doesn't stop because of this, even though I would totally understand if he/she does.

No, Wales members could get 10 tickets each. A ticket tout's dream.

I like to see different flags from different parts of Wales, another reason was that stupid thing Cardiff fans say that 'Swansea fans don't support Wales' It sort of puts that myth to bed.

Wales will not move to the Mill Stad and rightly so.

As I said earlier. Plenty of tickets left. if you know a Wales member ask them to get one for you now this minute - no excuses if you really want to go. The Mill Stad, with the exception of the Italy home game, is a souless stadium for the football and too big for Wales.

I can't wait for the scramble of tickets, should Wales make it to France. Yes it is human nature to follow a team that's doing well, but you shouldn't moan if you can't go when you want to jump on the bandwagon.

That was my flag, one Cardiff fan (And just one may I add) wanted to take it down as it had Swansea City on it. It was soon put back up by other Jacks there.

It is too late to move it to the Mill Stad now anyway, tickets have already been sold to the Belgians. Why should the FAW move a game when there are still a fair few tickets left for the Belgium home game anyway?

All 3 Welsh clubs home Saturday
at 23:44 5 Jan 2015

Very unusual, but I think it's partly due to the Football League not having games and the Premier League did. We wouldn't be able to have 3 away games in a row, strange how the police didn't move one to a Sunday.

Newport v Portsmouth will be heavily policed due to trouble at Fratton Park this season.

Last time Swansea and Cardiff both played at home in the league on the same day was in October 2005

Swansea 3-2 Blackpool

Do the officials understand the offside rule?

Well you're wrong. It seems like fans don't understand it and not the officials.

The laws of the Game are pretty clear on 'Obvious goalscoring opportunities' and sensibly doesn't take into account how fast or slow the particular player is,

This debate still going on? Nice to see people taking an interest again I guess, but anyone who went to the Wales games at the Mill Stad in the latter years will tell you the atmopshere was awful.

The Belgium game will still be at the CCS for me, I don't want 10,000 Belgian fans in the away end either. As mentioned before Andorra home coincides with the Rugby World Cup, so I can't see it being played there.

And regarding another point, Spain would never play games at the Nou Camp

Well that too, good luck to everyone wanting to go to watch Wales in France. No chance for most.

Not going to happen, people have already bought and paid for their seats for all the remaining home games.

The Rugby World Cup is also on around the same time Wales finish against Andorra. So unlucky to the people who miss out.
