Matthew Maynard to take temp charge of the team's winter training.

He's also thinking over applying for the permanent job of Head Coach, replacing Robert Croft.

The Joe Rodon interview

A good interview with Joe.



https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/joe-rodon-interview-b




It's sad that Joe's grandfather Peter isn't here to see Joe donning the Swans shirt, he'd be so proud.

Peter died young at 55, after playing at the Vetch, Bradford City, Merthyr, Ammanford and Fords. A good centre forward and a total gent.

DUBAI has introduced new rules for tourists ...
at 08:41 2 Nov 2018

"Dubai and the rest of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have introduced strict new regulations that could easily trip tourists up. This is the latest travel advice.

Holidaymakers wishing to bring in medication for personal use now have to seek permission to enter the UAE with it.

An online form has to be filled out by those declaring medication - and those who do not do so could be prosecuted and face jail time.

The new law - which applies to both visitors and residents - was introduced this month by The Ministry of Health in the United Arab Emirates"

Doctors advised to refuse cannabis for MS sufferers
at 11:31 1 Nov 2018

Doctors are being advised not to prescribe cannibis to MS patients and those suffering from chronic pain, yet cannabinoids have a very important role in pain relief.

So it's a case of giving with one hand and taking away with the other.

BUT ... From today people who suffer from epilepsy and sickness from cancer treatments etc can benefit from the change in the law.

Great news and good luck to them all, but to omit chronic pain and MS is scandalous!!

Aberfan
at 14:57 21 Oct 2018

21st October 1966

52 years ago today @ 09.15am, 116 children and 28 adults died when Tip No7 collapsed and engulfed Pantglas school in Aberfan.

This tip had been built on a stream and spring by the NCB, contravening all the rules and regulations for building such tips. It was also over 34 metres high, when the maximum height was only 20 metres.

The NCB nor any of its employees were ever prosecuted.

The people of Aberfan fought for 3 years to have the remaining tips removed, but the NCB refused to pay, and it was only after the government provided grants that they were eventually removed. They even made the Aberfan memorial fund pay £150,000 towards the tips removal after initially demanding £750,000!!!!

Many years later the government paid the £150,000 back into the fund.


RIP to the 116 children, and 28 adults who died through negligence and greed by the NCB
